For households that did not have enough food or money to buy food in the past seven days, FIBORROWFOODWK reports the number of days (up to 7) that the family relied on borrowed food from friends or relatives.
The information in FIBORROWFOODWK is taken from the household record and applies to household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors (coded "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.
