EPA has used data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture's 1977-78 Nationwide Food Consumption Survey to estimate the daily intake of different food classes which can be used for the assessment of environmental radionuclide intake through food consumption. Foods were classified by categories for which concentrations of radioactivity can be measured or calculated and which comprise significant dietary intake. The daily intake of each food subclass estimated for the U.S. population and for subpopulation classified according to their geographical (census) characteristics.
