NOFOODMOFQ reports how often there was no food of any kind in the household due to a lack of resources to obtain food in the last four weeks (never, rarely, sometimes, or often).

The information in NOFOODMOFQ 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").


NOFOODMOFQ has no comparability problems.
