Modeling Data With Excess Zeros and Measurement Error: Application to Evaluating Relationships Between Episodically Consumed Foods and Health Outcomes

This paper describes an extension to modeling usual intake distributions for episodically consumed foods, to assess the relationship between usual intake and health outcomes in a regression calibration model. The coding required for applying this approach to a dataset is included among the set of macros for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) method, available online.
