Dependent children in family 2011

Dataset population: Families in households/Dependent children in households

Dependent children in family
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 who's 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.
A family is defined as a group of people who are a:

  • Married, same-sex civil partnership, or cohabiting couple, with or without child(ren)
  • Lone parent with child(ren)
  • Married, same-sex civil partnership, or cohabiting couple with grandchild(ren) but with no children present from the intervening generation
  • Single grandparent with grandchild(ren) but no children present from the intervening generation.

Children in couple families need not belong to both members of the couple. For single or couple grandparents with grandchildren present, the children of the grandparent(s) may also be present if they are not the parents or grandparents of the youngest generation present.
