NEWSFQ (V157) reports how often the woman usually reads a newspaper or magazine (not at all, less than once a week, once a week or more often, or almost every day).
For a potentially comparable variable asking whether the woman reads the newspaper or a magazine at least once a week, see NEWSWK (V109). For a variable bridging NEWSFQ and NEWSWK, see NEWSBRIG.
