GOHUNGRYMOFQ reports how often, in the last four weeks, any member of the household went a whole day and night without eating due to a lack of food (never, rarely, sometimes, or often).

The information in GOHUNGRYMOFQ 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").


Apart from slight differences in question wording, GOHUNGRYMOFQ is comparable across samples.
