    Demographic differences and trends of vitamin D insufficiency in the US population, 1988-2004.
    Ginde AA, Liu MC, Camargo CA Jr.
    Arch Intern Med. 2009 Mar 23;169(6):626-32.
    PMID: 19307527

    Conclusions National data demonstrate a marked decrease in serum 25(OH)D levels from the 1988-1994 to the 2001-2004 NHANES data collections. Racial/ethnic differences have persisted and may have important implications for known health disparities. Current recommendations for vitamin D supplementation are inadequate to address the growing epidemic of vitamin D insufficiency.

    The prevalence of hypovitaminosis D among US adults: data from the NHANES III.
    Zadshir A, Tareen N, Pan D, Norris K, Martins D.
    Ethn Dis. 2005 Autumn;15(4 Suppl 5):S5-97-101.
    PMID: 16315387

    CONCLUSION: Serum levels of 25(OH) D3 are below the recommended levels for a large portion of the general adult population and in most minorities. Need exists for a critical review and probable revision of current recommendations for adult vitamin D intake to maintain adequate 25(OH) D3 levels.
