FSKFSTOR indicates whether it was too hard for the household to get to the store and if this was the reason the household was unable to eat enough of the kinds of foods they wanted. 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).
FSKFSTOR 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); 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.
