Description

For sample children and sample adults (and prior to 2019, all persons) in families in which at least one adult did not eat for a whole day because of a lack of money for food (FSNOTEAT==2), FSNOTEATNO reports the number of days in the last 30 days where the adult(s) in the family did not eat for a whole day because there wasn't enough money for food.

FSNOTEATNO is one of a set of variables comprising the Family Food Security Supplement, designed to study 30-day family food security. For more information about the measurement of 30-day family food security or for a list of other variables in the Family Food Security Supplement, please refer to FSRAWSCORE.

Comparability

Beginning in 2019, NHIS data collection changed to select only one sample adult and sample child per household. Accordingly, for 2019-forward, FSNOTEATNO is only available for the sample child age 0-17 and the sample adult age 18 and older.

The NHIS questionnaire was substantially redesigned in 2019 to introduce a different data collection structure and new content. For more information on changes in terminology, universes, and data collection methods beginning in 2019, please see the user note.
