- The National Diet and Nutrition Survey Rolling Programme (NDNS RP) is a cross-sectional, annual survey designed to collect detailed, quantitative information on food consumption, nutrient intake and nutritional status of the general United Kingdom (UK) population aged ≥1.5 years.
- NDNS RP uses a stratified sampling design to generate a random sample of private UK households each year and a nationally representative core sample of around 1000 participants (500 adults, 500 children) each year. Design provides for additional recruitment at country level.
- Data/samples include: sociodemographic data; dietary assessment; anthropometry; physical activity; energy expenditure; blood and urine samples for nutritional biomarker analysis; National Health Service (NHS) Central Registry and Cancer Registry linkage; contact for further research.
- The NDNS RP dataset (2008–19) comprises: dietary data (7999 adults and 7656 children); blood biomarkers (4181 adults and 2014 children); spot urine (3246 adults and 2318 children); and total energy expenditure (using doubly labelled water) (419 adults and 352 children). Results are published and disseminated via UK Government; survey data accessible via the UK Data Service.
- Stored biological samples are accessible for further health-related research in the public interest through the NDNS Bioresource.
- NDNS RP data underpin monitoring and development of nutrition policy. Data are used for chemical exposure risk assessment and modelling for consumer safety.
