Household type (Great Britain) 2011

Dataset population: Households

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.
