Age of youngest dependent child by Household type (Great Britain) 2011

Dataset population: Households

Age of youngest dependent child
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.

A dependent child is any person aged 0 to 15 in a household (whether or not in a family) or a person aged 16 to 18 in full-time education and living in a family with his or her parent(s) or grandparent(s). It does not include any people aged 16 to 18 who have a spouse, partner or child living in the household.

Household type
Household type classifies households in an alternative way to the household composition classification that is used in most standard census results.
A household is classified by the type of family present, but households with more than one family are categorised in the priority order:

  • Married couple family
  • Same-sex civil partnership couple family
  • Cohabiting couple family
  • Lone parent family

Within a family type, a family with dependent children takes priority.
This means that in tables that use this classification the alternative definitions of married couple household, same-sex civil partnership couple household, cohabiting couple household and lone parent household are applicable.
