The Measurement Error Webinar Series reviews concepts related to measurement error in greater depth, including an examination of sources of measurement error, how error may affect estimates of usual intake distributions and analyses of diet-health relationships, and strategies for mitigating measurement error.

The Advanced Dietary Analyses portion of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) Dietary Web Tutorial demonstrates the application of methods designed to account for measurement error in analysis of dietary intake data.
