Notes: Please note that while this table depict persons, the food security variable being analyzed pertain to households. The results need to be interpreted carefully. As stated in the Guide to Measuring Household Food Security (see http://www.fns.usda.gov/sites/default/files/FSGuide.pdf), "[T]he food security scale represents the condition of household members as a group, and not necessarily the condition of any particular household member. In general, conditions of food insecurity are believed to affect all household members, although not necessarily in the same way. By contrast, hunger is a uniquely individual phenomenon--some members of the household may be hungry while others are not. Consequently, when the scale measure classifies a household into the more severe range, food insecure with hunger, what it tells us is that at least some member, or members, of the household are experiencing hunger due to insufficiency of household resources, but not necessarily all members. The resultant prevalence figures for the estimated number and percent of households that are food insecure with hunger thus need to be interpreted carefully." Also note: Persons living in households where the food security variable is coded as “No Response” (-9) were excluded.
