Results indicate that urbanization. region, race, weight and height of an individual, gender, diet status, household size, age and income significantly affect sodium intake. Knowledge of the influence of sociodemographic and economic factors on sodium intake is necessary especially in the design and practical implementation of nutrition education and outreach programmes.
