The following table documents the number of men in each cohort (table I.2, p.I-7)  and the number of men who participated in a 7-day diary food sample process, as documented in the main dietary document for The Seven Countries Study . There were no data for the Japanese or Rome cohorts and these were excluded from figures in Volume XVII  indicating that dietary information was not available.
Dalmatia and Slavonia were calculated as the average of four samples (table 1, p.113) . For USA railroad men, dietary sampling was reported as “recall interview of all men” (p.I-6) . Finland, east and west, were reported (table 6, p.35) . Crevalcore and Montegiorgio were reported (table 3, p.72) . Zutphen sampling was calculated  as an average of 3 samples (table 1, p.89). Crete was calculated as an average of 3 samples and Corfu as an average of 2 samples (table 3, p.60) . The three Yugoslavian cohorts of Velika Krsna, Zrenjanin and Belgrade were calculated from: (table 1, p.149), an average of two samples; (table 2, p.150), an average of two samples; and (table 3, p.151) from one sample .
