48. The data used to form the input to the 'Household composition' classification are derived from those collected to derive the 'Relationship in household'. The recommended methodology and questionnaire modules are explained in the 'Relationship in household' standard.


49. The standard input categories for 'Family composition' are the level 4 categories of the 'Family composition' classification. For operational reasons, supplementary codes also exist where, for example, all of the individuals present are under 15 years old meaning that under the operational definition a family can not be formed. In such cases the code '02 Not classifiable' is used.
