I would like to know whether data on food (in)security collected with FIES (Food Insecurity Experience Scale) are available in the Cameroon DHS dataset. If the data are there, it would be very helpful if the variable names are indicated.

Many thanks!

Following is a response from DHS Survey Management Specialist, Jean de Dieu Bizimana:

In the Cameroon 2018 survey, the responses for the FIES questions are in the variables S126-S133 for women (the IR file) and SM126-SM133 for men (the MR file).
