Eating Out: Meals per Week

Question: "During the past 7 days, how many meals did you get that were prepared away from home such as restaurants, fast food places, food stands, grocery stores, or from vending machines?" Among Americans aged 20 or older, these are their answers...

None: 19.3%
One: 17.0%
Two: 17.1%
Three: 13.1%
Four: 8.5%
Five: 7.3%
Six: 3.0%
Seven: 5.1%
Eight or more: 9.5%

Since the last time this question was asked in 2007-08, a statistically significant change occurred in only one category: the percentage who got eight or more meals away from home fell by 3 percentage points, from 12.5 to 9.5 percent.
