1 This variable was derived from the response to question 10 of the survey (i.e., whether the foods that students can buy separately from full school meals were sold to generate funds to support food service operations at the school). A response of "not applicable; no foods or beverages sold separately from full school meals" to this question was coded as "no" for whether students could buy any foods separately from full school meals at the school (6 percent). This 6 percent of schools included 10 schools that did not offer any of the listed foods for sale in questions 3, 5, and 7.
2 Based on the 94 percent of public elementary schools that offered any of the selected foods for sale outside of full school meals.
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
