2nd Release

This variable describes the relationship of each person residing within the same household.

All persons aged under 15 years are classified as a dependent child under 15.

To be classified as a Dependent Student (15-24) or a Non-Dependent Child the following conditions must apply: must be a biological, step, adopted, or foster child of a couple or lone parent usually resident in the household; AND have no partner or child of his/her own usually resident in the household. Furthermore, if such a person is aged 15-24 years and studying full time they are classified as a Dependent Student otherwise they are classified as a Non-Dependent Child.

Note that Family Reference Persons were previously identified in this classification but now appear in the Family/Household Reference Person Indicator (RPIP) variable.
