Description

Hello there,
I have been reviewing variables available in the UKLHS questionnaires related to food poverty. I see on the Long-term Content Plan that HH:Food Poverty was scheduled to be a part of the Household Questionnaire from Wave 12 forward. I also noted in the COVID-19 variable locator, that it notes that the variable capturing experience of hunger (dietandfoodsecurity_w7.hungry_cv) is from the Annual version in UKHLS, question HUNGRY, with different time frame and variable label. (https://www.understandingsociety.ac.uk/documentation/covid-19/dataset-documentation/variable/hungry_cv

However, I am now looking at the questionnaire for the Wave 12 survey and have been unable to locate the HUNGRY variable in the questionnaire. I was just wondering if you could confirm for me whether or not a question asking "Still thinking about [time frame], was there a time when you or others in your household were hungry but did not eat?" and follow-up question regarding reasons for this experience (as in Wave 4 and onward of COVID-19 questionnaire).

Very many thanks for your help,
Rachel Loopstra
