NEMS-P: Perceived Food Environment Study
The purpose of the Perceived Food Environment Study is to develop and validate an instrument to evaluate perceived nutrition environment. Once the instrument is developed, survey completion data from two-hundred individuals residing in the Philadelphia area will be used to ascertain instrument validity. Observed food environment data collected as part of on-going NEMS (Nutrition Environment Measures Survey) assessments in the greater Philadelphia area will also be used in the validation process. Data from this study could elucidate the relationship between observed nutrition environment, perceived nutrition environment and eating behaviors.
