FIPROBFQ reports how often the household had problems satisfying food needs in the last year (never, seldom, sometimes, often, or always).

The information in FIPROBFQ is taken from the household record and applies to household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors (code "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.


FIPROBFQ has no comparability problems.
