Relationship in Household (RLHP)

This is a key variable at the person level. It is used to record the relationship of each person in a family to the family reference person or, where a person is not part of a family, that person's relationship to the household reference person.

A question on relationship has been included in all Australian censuses. Since the 1986 Census, relationship to Person 1 and/or Person 2 has been asked in respect of each child. This is necessary to classify step children.

For more information regarding the categories contained within RLHP see the following entries:

Same-sex couple, Lone parent, Married registered, Child under 15, Other related individual, Non-dependent child, Non-family member, Lone person household, Group household.

See also Family Composition (FMCF), Family/Household Reference Person Indicator (RPIP).
