from data for infants at 3 and 6 mo of age (CDC, 2004b, 2004c; Abbott Labs, 2002, 2003 [2001 data]).

gPercentages of infants fully or partially breast-fed at 6–11.9 mo of age were calculated as the average of data reported for infants at 6 mo (CDC, 2004b, 2004c) and 12 mo of age (CDC, 2004b, 2004c; Briefel et al., 2004a).

hIncludes 0.8% of children, age 1–4.9 y, who were reported as “age not reported.”

iPercentage distribution of women as fully breastfeeding (55% of the total) or partially breastfeeding (45%of the total) was calculated according to the distribution of infants identified as fully or partially breast-fed (see notes f and g).

NOTES FOR TABLE E-4: This table is similar to Table 5-2; more detail is presented here in Appendix E.

DATA SOURCES: Price data are from Economic Research Service, USDA (ERS, 2004b, 1999 price data; Oliveira et al., 2001, 2000 infant formula price data); ACNielsen Homescan (ACNielsen, 2001, price data for 2001obtained through ERS, USDA); and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor (BLS, 2004a, 2002 price data). Data on rates of participation are from resources published by USDA (Bartlett et al., 2003, 2002 data; Kresge, 2003, 2002 data). Data on percentages of infants breast-fed were obtained from the 2003 National Immunization Survey (CDC, 2004b, 2004c) and published resources (Abbott Labs, 2002, 2003; Briefel et al, 2004a).
