Relationship in Household (RLHP)

This is a key variable at the person level. It is used to determine familial and non-familial relationships between persons usually residing within the same household.

A question on relationship has been included in all Australian censuses. Since the 1986 Census, relationship to Person 1 and/or Person 2 has been asked in respect of each child. This was necessary to classify stepchildren.

For more information regarding the categories contained within RLHP see the following entries:

Same-sex couple, Lone Parent, Married Registered, Child under 15, Other related individual, Non-Dependent Child, Non-Family Member, Lone person household, Group household. See also Family Type (FMTF), Family/Household Reference Person Indicator (RPIP).
