APPENDIX A - CORRESPONDENCE TABLES BETWEEN THE FAMILY TYPE CLASSIFICATION AND THE FAMILY COMPOSITION CLASSIFICATION

The 'Family composition' standard replaced the 'Family type' standard in 2005 and the categories are fully compatible. The following tables show correspondences between the two.

Note that there is no correspondence listed between 'Family composition' and the four-digit level of 'Family type'. This is because 'Family composition' does not differentiate families according to the criteria for the four-digit level of 'Family type', which is the presence or absence of 'other related individuals'.

Note 1: in cases where multiple codes are listed under 'Family composition', it is not necessary to specify at which level of the classification the correspondence is made, as all levels of those listed categories are identical in content.

Note 1: in cases marked with an asterisk, it is possible to code data categorised to the 'Family composition' classification to either of the listed 'Family type' categories as the information is insufficient to select between the 'Family type' categories.

Note 2: in other cases where multiple codes are listed under 'Family type' it is not necessary to specify at which level of the classification the correspondence is made, as all levels of those listed categories are identical in content.
