FSKFMONY indicates whether the household could not afford the foods they wanted to eat and whether this was the reason they did always have enough of those foods. 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).
FSKFMONY 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: difficulty getting to the store (FSKFSTOR); kinds of food wanted not available (FSKFDAVL); no time for shopping and cooking (FSKFTIME); and being on a special diet (FSKFDIET).
This variable is part of the Food Security Supplement.
