|Relationship as Reported for Couples (RLCP)This variable records the husband/wife or de facto partner relationship as it is reported for both opposite-sex and same-sex couples. The variable shows the number of people who reported their relationship as 'husband or wife'.|
In the 2011 Census, data on the relationships people have with others in the same dwelling, including husband/wife or defacto partner, is mainly derived from question 5 on the Census Household Form, which asks for each person’s relationship to Person 1 on the form.
This variable is new for 2011.
For further information see the data quality statement for Relationship in Household (RLHP). Also refer to the Same-sex couples fact sheet for more details.
