Most countries, nowadays, have periodic national nutrition and health surveys that allow the monitoring bodies and researchers to evaluate the nutritional health of their populations and the efficacy of relevant policies and practices, as well as identifying the needs for further interventions. The availability of such important nationally representative data, as well as the methodological advances in the field of nutritional epidemiology, has created a valuable platform for further research and capacity building in the field. This Special Issue of Nutrients entitled “National Nutrition and Health Surveys, a Platform for Advancing Research, Policy, and Practice” is dedicated to papers used national survey data to address nutrition and health-related research questions.
Some relevant topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Evaluating prevalence of inadequacy in nutrient intakes
- Dietary patterns in association with health and disease
- Use of machine learning techniques in the evaluation of nutritional health
- Identifying at-risk population for specific nutrient efficiencies
- The efficacy of fortification policies and dietary intake recommendations
