HOUSEHOLD AND FAMILY
NUMBER OF USUAL RESIDENTS IN HOUSEHOLD
This data item describes the number of usual residents in a household, including children under 15 years. Visitors to private dwellings are excluded.
In the flat file structure, all members of the household will have the same number assigned to their records for any given month (see File Structure for more information). To identify individual households, refer to Household ID [ABSHID]
Households that have couples where only one partner has been recorded in the labour force survey have an additional usual resident added to the Number of usual residents in household to represent this absent partner (See Social marital status [SOCMARCE] for more information).
The Number of usual residents in household is based on the number of people aged over 15 years (who are in the labour force survey and appear as records in the CURF) and the number of children under 15 years (who aren't in the survey but appear as a data item for parents).
The data item is limited to '2 or more children' (see Number of children aged 0 to 14 years [FAMNKIDC]).
For this data item, the number of people in a household relates to the smallest possible number of people, and can be thought of as "at least this many people".
People in special dwellings (see Residence Status [URSTATC]) are treated as single person 'households' (See Household ID [ABSHID]), so are excluded from this data item.
