Description

FRIDGE indicates whether the housing unit provided access to a refrigerator.

In the 2008 ACS/PRCS and 2006-8 multiyear ACS/PRCS, a Census Bureau processing error led to an increase in the allocation rate for FRIDGE (see the data quality flag QFRIDGE). The Census Bureau calls the effect of this error "negligible." Please see ACS Errata #53 and #64 for more information about the errors and the revisions. In November 2010, the Census Bureau released revised data. The revised releases correct this error. FRIDGE reports these revised values.

We provide the original values in FRIDGEORIG so that users can analyze the differences in the revisions or replicate previous analyses. However, we recommend that users analyze the revised variable FRIDGE in their research.
