Definition

The CCHIP index is based on 8 occurrence questions that represent a generally increasing level of severity of food insecurity (access) and that are related to whether household members are affected by food shortages, perceived food insufficiency or altered food intake due to constrained economic resources in the household. The CCHIP scores range from 0–8 and are interpreted as follows:  Scores of 5–8 affirmative responses: presence of food shortage in the household.  Scores of 1–4: members of the household are at risk of hunger. Score of 0: household is food secure. Moderate or severe household food insecurity: scores of 5–8 on the CCHIP index, meaning that members of the household experience food shortages.
