Approach to Answering the Question
Data Analysis

Subcommittee
Data Analysis and Food Pattern Modeling Cross-Cutting Working Group

Data Analysis Protocol
Developed for each scientific question being examined, the protocol describes the plan for how the data analysis will be conducted. The protocol provides the:

  • Analytic framework,
  • Analytic plan, and
  • Analysis results.

The relationship between beverage consumption and achieving food group and nutrient recommendations will be evaluated in the following ways:

Beverage category contributions to food groups and nutrients

  • Average contribution of food group and nutrients per 8 oz of each discrete beverage type
  • Beverage contribution as a percent of total daily energy and selected dietary components
    • Energy (and percent of energy from macronutrients)
    • Macro/Micro nutrients, limited to nutrients of public health concern
    • Other food components: e.g. added sugars, caffeine
  • Percent of daily beverage calories by discrete beverage type
  • Consumption prevalence of cow’s milk and milk alternative beverages
  • Prevalence of nutritionally fortified beverages consumption  

Note: Alcohol is a part of total beverage consumption that will be addressed in a separate protocol “What is the relationship between alcohol consumption and achieving nutrient and food group recommendations?”

For additional details, see the full protocol for the question, what is the relationship between beverage consumption and achieving nutrient and food group recommendations? This protocol is up-to-date as of: 10/22/2019.
