This secondary analysis evaluated the validation of the short version of the US Department of Agriculture's Household Food Security Survey Module (HFSSM) in a Latino migrant population. The Rasch model assessed the HFSSM's structure, item severity levels, and fitness of the sample population. Differential item functioning (DIF) analysis explored the invariance of HFSSM response patterns between less/more acculturated households. Item infit scores were within an adequate range (0.7-1.3). Item severity scores and unidimensionality structure supported the HFSSM's theoretical framework. Analysis showed statistically nonsignificant DIF contrast between acculturation levels. The adapted HFSSM performed in agreement with the theoretical framework of food insecurity as a managed process in this Latino migrant population.
