Healthy Eating Index

This web page contains links to the databases needed to calculate population Healthy Eating Index-2005 scores for 2003-2004. Such scores were used in the Nutrition Insight No. 42, Diet Quality of Low Income and Higher Income Americans in 2003-2004 as Measured by the Healthy Eating Index-2005. The SAS program and Excel worksheet used to calculate the scores were very similar to those used for the 2001-2002 scores.
