95: Raw score equals zero, no scale score
98: No response
FSRASCHC reports the Rasch scale scores assigned to households with children based on each of their responses to items in the 8 item child food security questionnaire. The Rasch model was used to develop cut-off scores for the categorical measure of food insecurity in the past year (FSSTATUSC).
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.
This variable is comparable and available in all years since 1998, when the current food security questionnaire and screening questions were implemented consistently.
In 1998, 1999, and 2007, food security data are not available for all rotation groups. The food security status weight FSHWTSCALE should be used when analyzing the food security scales.
