This survey was designed to provide data to establish progress towards meeting the Department of Health’s target to reduce the population average of dietary salt intakes to no more than 6g per day. The aim was to collect useable 24-hour urine samples from 600 respondents, representative of the population aged 19 to 64 years living in England in the second half of 2011. Urinary sodium excretion was used to estimate salt intake. Salt intake was calculated using the equation: 17.1 mmol of sodium = 1g salt and assumes all of the sodium was derived from salt.
