This paper discusses the relationship of socioeconomic characteristics of households in South Sumatra to food security. Food security is measured by the proportion of household food consumption expenditure. The socioeconomic characteristics of household food security illustrate: first, stability of food security (stability), namely the number of household members and the work of the head of the household; second, the availability of food in the household (food availability), namely households receiving Social Assistance (social aid) and the ability to access food (access to food), namely sex, education of the head of the household, age of the head of the household, income of the head of the household and the area of residence. This paper uses data from South Sumatera National Socio-Economic Survey (SUSENAS) for the 2018 Consumption Expenditure Module with a sample of 9,732 households. The analytical method in this study is a qualitative analysis to describe the condition of household food security levels with an approach to measuring the degree of food security according to Jonsson and Toole (1991). Estimation results using the OLS model. The results showed that households in South Sumatra included in the category of Less Food, Vulnerable and Food Insecurity amounted to 53.2 percent. Based on the three characteristic of household food security, the food availability indicator, which is the variable accepting or not accepting social protection programs (social aid), is the variable that most influences the level of household food security. Furthermore, the variable that affects household food security is the number of household dependents as an indicator of food stability. From the access to food indicator, it can be seen that households living in rural areas have a lower level of food security than urban households.
