This is one of the set of Key Statistics tables produced from the 2001 Census. This table provides information in numbers and percentages on Lone parent households with dependent children and Employment.
A household was defined as one person living alone, or a group of people (not necessarily related) living at the same address with common housekeeping – that is, sharing either a living room or sitting room or at least one meal a day.
Lone parent is defined as a parent with a dependent child living in a household with no other people (whether related to that dependent child or not). A dependent child is a person aged 0-15 in a household (whether or not in a family) or aged 16-18 in full-time education and living in a family with his or her parent(s).
Any person who carried out paid work in the week before the Census, whether self-employed or an employee, is described as employed or in employment. Working part-time is defined as working 30 hours or less a week. Working full-time is defined as working 31 hours or more a week.
