Description

FSSPDLESC indicates how much less money the household could spend per week and still meet basic household food requirements. This question is asked of households that indicated they could spend less for food (FSSPDML).

FSSPDLESC is a categorical recode of the continuous FSSPDLES. In 2015, the continuous variable was discontinued from the public release data and a categorical variable was introduced. FSSPDLESC recodes all previous years to the 2015 coding scheme. FSSPDLES will no longer be updated for new samples.

This variable is part of the Food Security Supplement.
