Household Dietary Diversity Score (HDDS) for Measurement of Household Food Access: Indicator Guide

In light of the need to build consensus on household food access impact indicators, two strategic objective level indicators of household food access – HDDS and months of inadequate household food provisioning (MIHFP) – were identified during the development of USAID Office of Food for Peace (FFP)’s FY05-08 strategy, through a process of consultation and discussion with CSs, researchers, and other technical groups. This guide provides guidance on the specific data collection needs for the HDDS indicator. It assumes that these questions will be part of a population-based survey instrument and will be applied to all the households in the sample.
