AGE OF YOUNGEST CHILD

This data item is only attached to parents/guardians in a family and indicates the age of their youngest child. It only applies to children who usually live in the same dwelling.

In a lone parent family, the age of youngest child is assigned to the lone parent or guardian record. In a couple family, both parents/guardians have the age of youngest child assigned to their records.

Other members in the family will be recorded as 'Not a parent / Not applicable.' Unrelated members in the household will also be recorded as 'Not a parent / Not applicable'

For children aged 15 years and over, their specific age is available on the dependent student or non-dependent child's own record in the CURF.

For more information on families and how ABS defines household and family characteristics, refer to the publication Family, Household and Income Unit Variables, 2005 (cat. no. 1286.0).

Family characteristics are not collected in special dwellings (see Residence Status [URSTATC]).
