These evaluation tools includes two measures of beverage consumption for adult populations. Each studies sugar sweetened beverage usual consumption using food frequency measures. The first survey is a 15-item comprehensive Rethink Your Drink (RYD) Survey [originally known as the Beverage Intake Questionnaire (BEVQ-15)] developed at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. The second survey is the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). It is a two-item measure that only evaluates sugar sweetened beverage consumption.
