  1. * For simplicity, factor loading values less than 0.25 are not listed in the matrix.* Four dietary patterns were derived by principal component analysis after entering the 24 food groups into the FACTOR PROCEDURE. The factors were rotated by orthogonal transformations (Varimax rotation function in SAS), and the number of factors was determined based on eigenvalues (> 1.20)
