Desired foods not part of special diet

Codes

This variable is not available for any of the currently selected samples.

Description

FSKFDIET indicates whether a member or members of the household were participating in a special diet that prevented them from eating enough of the foods that they wanted to eat. This question is asked of households reporting having enough to eat, but not always enough of the kinds of food they wanted to eat (see FSFOODS).

FSKFDIET is one of five questions these households are asked about the reasons that they did not always have enough of the kinds of foods they wanted to eat. Households were also asked whether this occurred for the following reasons: not enough money for these foods (FSKFMONY); difficulty getting to the store (FSKFSTOR); kinds of food wanted not available (FSKFDAVL); and no time for shopping and cooking (FSKFTIME).

This variable is part of the Food Security Supplement.
