Description

FSRASCHA reports the Rasch scale scores assigned to households based on each of their responses to items in the 10-item household/adult food security questionnaire. The Rasch model was used to develop cut-off scores for the categorical measure of 12-month food insecurity (FSSTATUSA).

Note that Rasch scores are not assigned to households with zero reported food insecure conditions or to households that are screened out of the food security section of the supplement.

This variable is part of the Food Security Supplement.
