Nutrition Environment Measures Survey Toolkit
This US-based toolkit provides applications, materials, publications and referral to training available on the Nutrition Environment Measures Survey (NEMS). The NEMS measures focus on surveying community and consumer nutrition environments which include the type and location of food outlets, availability of healthful choices and information, pricing, promotion, and placement of healthier food products. The measures are indicators and are not meant to be an extensive inventory of individual food outlets. Since their public release, many researchers and practitioners have used the measures in their own research and communities.
