Relationship as Reported for Couples (RLCP)

Records the husband/wife or de facto partner relationship as it is reported for both opposite-sex and same-sex couples in the relationship question (Question 5 on the paper Census Household Form). This variable shows the number of people who reported their relationship as 'Husband or wife' (regardless of whether they are a same-sex or opposite-sex couple). It should be noted that relationships are only recorded where the couple have been counted in an occupied private dwelling.

Data for this variable are available upon request only.
