FICOTHER indicates whether some other reason was a cause of food insufficiency for the household. The meaning of "other" depends on the causes of food insufficiency specified in a given survey.

The information in FICOTHER is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors (coded "2") using:

RESIDENT variable when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis;
HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis;
RESIDENTMN variable when men are the unit of analysis.
