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

The information in FOODPROBYR is taken from the household record, linked to the record of the woman respondent. This information applies to household residents, not temporary visitors, so researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2").


FOODPROBYR has no comparability problems.
