This publication is part of the Demography Working Paper series.

In the pages that follow some provisional estimates of families by family type and relationship in household are presented. Analysis and description of the statistics on families are not included in this document. The final estimates will contain a statement and estimates of standard errors. These provisional estimates will serve as the basis of comments and evaluation towards the later production of family estimates. The provisional estimates show that plausible estimates of families can be prepared using the LFS as a data source, by the estimation method described. One advantage of the LFS dataset is the frequency of the collection.
