Codes and Frequencies
FINOTEATPREFQ reports how often the household cannot afford to eat their preferred types of food.
The information in FINOTEATPREFQ is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.
