Presents data on household and family composition including demographic, labour force and family types. A particular focus is families with children aged 0–17 years, including information about family structure, and children with a natural parent living elsewhere. Comparison with data obtained from the 2006–07 Family Characteristics and Transitions and 2009–10 Family Characteristics surveys shows any changes to the numbers and proportions of various family types. The release also presents data on the forming of marital relationships, the number of children born and expectations of having children in the future, experiences of leaving the family home, and death and divorce of parents for persons aged 18 years and over.
