This data item indicates whether the data was collected directly from the person themselves, or from another responsible adult in the household.

The labour force survey is asked from Any Responsible Adult (ARA) in the household on behalf of all members in the household aged over 15.

Occasionally, there can be inconsistent or incorrect information provided for someone via an ARA proxy, and this data item is provided to help inform these inconsistencies.

Respondent detail only applies to people interviewed in private dwellings. People in special dwellings are recorded as 'Unknown'

For more information, refer to Data collection.

This data item does not relate to the information obtained from the Multipurpose Household Survey (MPHS, cat. no. 4100.0), as this is always collected via a personal interview (i.e. 'Obtained from person him/herself').
