Footnotes

1. The Census definition of a family is: 'A family comprises a group of people consisting of a married or cohabiting couple with or without child(ren), or a lone parent with child(ren).

2. A dependent child is defined as a person aged 0-15 in a household or aged 16-18, in full-time education and living with his or her parent(s).

3. The family reference person is taken to be the lone parent in a lone parent family. In a couple family, the reference person is chosen from the two people in the couple on the basis of their economic activity. If economic activity is the same, the reference person is taken to be the elder of the two.

6. This does not mean that the individuals are not related. They could be siblings, cousins, in-laws etc, but they are not family as defined by the Census.

7. Note that those persons who answer 'living rent free' to the Census question on 'owns/rents' are placed back into the rented categories. This arises because it is possible that some form-fillers on housing benefit may tick 'living rent free' when they do in fact rent from the Council or another social or private landlord.

8. This category includes: Defence establishments (including ships), Prison Service Establishments, Educational Establishments, Hotels, Boarding Houses, Guest Houses, Hostels, Civilian Ships, Persons Sleeping Rough and Other establishments.
