Nutritional Indicators

In biomonitoring, nutritional indicator refers to vitamins, iron-status indicators, trace elements or other dietary indicators with potential health relevance.

CDC produces a comprehensive report of nutrition status using these indicators. CDC’s Second Nutrition Report is the most comprehensive biochemical assessment of the nutritional status of the U.S. population. The report shows us what the levels of nutrition indicators are actually in people – general population and selected groups such as children, women of childbearing age, and minorities.

Information on each nutritional indicator that NBP studies is available including human health effects, nutritional information, and additional resources to learn more.
