For households that did not have enough food or money to buy food in the past seven days, FICUTADULTFDWK reports the number of days (up to 7) that the family reduced the quantities eaten by adults, so small children could eat.
The information in FICUTADULTFDWK 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.
