Labour Force Status of Parents/Partners in Families (LFSF)

This variable indicates the labour force status of parents or partners in couple and lone parent families.

Labour Force Status of Parents/Partners in Families (LFSF) is a new variable for 2011 and is derived using data from Relationship in Household (RLHP), Family Composition (FMCF), Labour Force Status (LFSP) and Hours Worked (HRSP).

Of all applicable parents/partners (that is, for persons who were classified as Lone Parents or Partners in couple families), the non-response rate (not stated) for LFSP was 1.2%.

For more information see the data quality statements for LFSP, HRSP, RLHP and FMCF.

More information on LFSF is available in the 2011 Census Dictionary (cat. no. 2901.0).
