Codes and Frequencies
FSSPDOTH indicates the total amount the household spent on food last week at places not already mentioned the interviewer. Households who did not shop for food at any additional places are assigned a value of zero.
FSSPDOTH is only available until 2014. For a variable available 2015+ as well as harmonized backwards in time, see FSSPDOTHC.
This variable is part of the Food Security Supplement.
This variable usually is comparable across years, but the universe changes over time.
In most years, the question is asked of all households. In 1997, this question was asked of 6 of the 8 rotation groups. In 2010, food expenditure questions are restricted to non-group quarter households.
The topcodes change over time. Before 2011, there is no topcode. In 2011, a topcode of $180 was introduced. From 2012 on, the topcode is $200.
