FSRAWSCRA reports the total number of affirmative answers the household provided to the 10 item household/adult food security questionnaire. This raw score is used to determine the food security of the adults in a household in the past year (FSSTATUS).

Households with incomes greater than 185% of the poverty line are asked two screening questions about food insecurity and if they report no instances of food insecurity are coded as having no food insecure conditions.

This variable is part of the Food Security Supplement.
