Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
For households that did not have enough food or money to buy food in the past seven days, FISKIPMEALSWK reports the number of days (up to 7) that the family reduced the number of meals eaten per day.
The information in FISKIPMEALSWK is taken from the household record and applies to household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors (code "2") using:
RESIDENT variable when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis;
HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis;
RESIDENTMN variable when men are the unit of analysis.
