HOUSEHOLD AND FAMILY

<< Previous Section: Demography


FAMILY COMPOSITION OF HOUSEHOLD

This data item describes the family characteristics of the household. These include couple family, one parent family, and multiple family households.

The household is described as a single unit, so all members in the household will have the same household characteristics for a given month. To identify individual households, refer to Household ID [ABSHID]

'Other one family households' includes families where no couple relationship or parent-child relationships exist (such as siblings living together). It also includes one parent families with no dependent children (i.e. non-dependent children only) and couple families with no dependent children but with other family members.

Family characteristics are not collected in special dwellings (see Residence Status [URSTATC]).

For more information on families and how ABS defines family and household characteristics, refer to the publication Family, Household and Income Unit Variables, 2005 (cat. no. 1286.0).
