Standard question module

The standard question module for this variable is the 'Relationship in household' question module (see 'Relationship in Household - Collection Methods').

Standard input categories

The input categories are derived after: 

  • each family in a multi-family household has been identified separately
  • the family reference person for each family is identified
  • the primary family is identified
  • the family relationship between the reference person of the primary family and every other family is established.

The standard input categories for 'Relationship between families' are the same as for its standard classification and code structure (see the Classification and Coding page).
