Alternative Household Type

Definition

This derived variable describes households in an alternative way to the classification used in most of the standard tables (see Household Composition HHCHUK).

A household is defined by the type of family in it. A household with more than one family is categorised according to the following priority order:

Married couple family, cohabiting couple family, lone parent family, same sex couple family.

Within a family type a family with dependent children takes priority.

Note that same-sex couple households will be grouped with cohabiting couple households, (codes 6 and 7).

Family Reference Person Indicator

Definition

This derived variable identifies the person who is the reference person for a family. The Family Reference Person (FRP) is taken to be the lone parent in a lone parent family. In a couple family, the FRP is chosen from the two people in the couple on the basis of their economic activity (in the priority order full-time job, part-time job, unemployed, retired, other). If both people have the same economic activity, the FRP is idntified as the elder of the two or, if they are the same age, the first member of the couple on the form.

Household Reference Person (HRP) Indicator

Definition

This derived variable identifies the person who is the reference person for the household. For a person living alone, that person is the Household Reference Person (HRP). If the household contains only one family (with or without ungrouped individuals) the HRP is the same as the Family Reference Person (FRP). If there is more than one family in the household, the HRP is chosen from among the FRPs using the same criteria as for choosing the FRP (economic activity, then age, then order on the form). If there is no family, the HRP is chosen from the individuals using the same criteria.

Relationship within Household

Definition

This variable is based on the relationship question which asks the first 5 (6 in Northern Ireland) people in the household to provide information on their relationship with all previously numbered members in the household. Persons 6 (Person 7 in Northern Ireland) and over are asked to identify their relationships with Persons 1 and the previous two people only.

During processing the responses to the question are held in a compound field that gives the relationship of that person to all other people in the household. Reciprocal relationships (ie. those that are implied by a given relationship) are also held in this field. For example, person 2 is not asked to provide a relationship to person 3, but the relationship can be determined from the relationship to person 2 provided by person 3. The information is used to derive the family variables but is not directly used in stanard output.
