Table 14. Estimated Regression Coefficients for Sum of Foods Predicting Square Root Cup Equivalents of Dairy, by Age Group & Sex

Cup equivalents of dairy, estimation of b0 and b1, the model is:

E ([Dairy]1/2) = b0+ b1([NFG1P1+ NFG2P2+ ... + NFG4P4]1/2)

Cup equivalents of dairy, for each age group and sex, the estimates of the parameters are:

Parameter Boys/Men Girls/Women
Intercept (b0) 0.267324 0.302148
b1 0.911968 0.888512
Intercept (b0) 0.354193 0.388273
b1 0.889021 0.832711
