The Family/Household Reference Person Indicator variable records the person who is used as the basis for determining the familial and non-familial relationships within a household. It is usually the person who has identified himself/herself as person one on the Household form. The household reference person in a multiple family household can be identified as the family reference person in the primary family.
WARNING This variable is to be used with caution as it is not an indication of 'household headship'.
Applicable to: Person in family, group, lone person households
