HOUSEHOLD COMPOSITION

Broadly speaking, 'Household composition' is classified according to the number and composition of families within households. Therefore, in order to determine 'Household composition' the relationship of household members to each other and the existence or absence of familial relationships must be considered. This is established through the use of the 'Relationship in household' and then the 'Family composition' variables.

Terminology used in this standard is defined in the Glossary (see Explanatory Notes tab).
