Adult lifestage (alternative adult definition) by Age 2011

Dataset population: Persons aged 16 and over in households

Adult lifestage
Adults aged between 16 and 54 are classified by age, by the presence of dependent children in the household, and (in some instances) by the age of the youngest dependent child.
Adults aged 55 and over are classified by age, whether they are in one or two-person households, and (in some instances) by the presence of dependent children.
Adult lifestage uses the alternative definition of an adult (anyone aged 16 and over). This definition is different from the standard definition for adults, children and dependent children used in most census results.

Age
Age is derived from the date of birth question and is a person's age at their last birthday, at 27 March 2011. Dates of birth that imply an age over 115 are treated as invalid and the person's age is imputed. Infants less than one year old are classified as 0 years of age.
