RELATIONSHIP IN HOUSEHOLD

BACKGROUND

The 'Relationship in household' variable facilitates the definition, collection and classification of household relationship data in statistical collections. Its derivation requires the supporting variables 'Age', 'Sex', 'Marital status', 'Full-time/part-time student status' and 'Family number'. Data can be output directly to the classification of 'Relationship in household', however its major use is providing the basis for deriving the 'Family composition', 'Household composition', 'Income unit composition' and 'Social marital status' variables.

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