Information and resources for measuring long-term average daily intake, or "usual intake, including an NCI-developed method for estimating usual dietary intakes of foods and nutrients using 24-hour recalls. This method can be used to:

- Assess the effects of individual covariates on consumption
- Predict individual intake for use in a model to assess the relationship between diet and disease or other variable using the statistical technique of regression calibration.
