Dietary diversity score between women in FiLWHEL and KNHANES. Legend: DDS 10 g: dietary diversity score with a minimum of 10 g in each food group (a); DDS all: dietary diversity score with no minimum set in each food group (b); and FVS: count of all different food items consumed (c); FiLWHEL: Filipino Women’s Diet and Health Study; KNHANES: Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Mean (±SD) of DDS 10 g, DDS all, and FVS for FILWHEL versus (v) KNHANES were 6.0 (±1.6) v 6.8 (±1.5), 6.7 (±1.7) v 7.9 (±1.4), and 9.2 (±3.3) v 14.7 (±4.9), respectively (Student’s paired t-tests p < 0.001, respectively). Using the McNemar’s tests, the P-value for the proportions of all scoring categories of DDS 10 g, DDS all, and FVS between FiLWHEL and KNHANES was <0.001
