Definitions

Cohabiting couple family – A cohabiting couple family consists of two people of any sex who are living together as a couple, with or without their child(ren), but who are not married or in a same-sex civil partnership. The child(ren) may belong to both members of the couple or only one. Children are included in the family only if they are not themselves living with a spouse, same-sex civil partner or partner and do not have any children of their own in the household. Cohabiting couples with their grandchild(ren) are also considered a cohabiting couple family if there are no children from the intervening generation present in the household (note that children of the couple may also be present if they are not parents or grandparents of the youngest generation).

Cohabiting couple household – A cohabiting couple household is a household that comprises a cohabiting couple family and no other person. This definition is used in most results from the 2011 Census. In a small number of results a cohabiting couple household is defined as a household that contains at least one cohabiting couple, but does not contain any married or same-sex civil partnership couples. When this definition is used it is clearly indicated.

Dependent child – 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). It does not include any children who have a spouse, partner or child living in the household.

Family – A family is defined as a group of people who are either:

• a married, same-sex civil partnership, or cohabiting couple, with or without child(ren)

• a lone parent with child(ren)

• a married, same-sex civil partnership, or cohabiting couple with grandchild(ren) but with no children present from the intervening generation

• a 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 parents or grandparents of the youngest generation present.

Full-time student – A full-time student is a person of any age who has indicated that they are a schoolchild or student in full-time education. Schoolchildren and students in full-time education studying away from their family home are treated as usually resident at their term-time address.”

Household – A household is defined as one person living alone, or a group of people (not necessarily related) living at the same address who share cooking facilities and share a living room or sitting room or dining area A household must contain at least one person whose place of usual residence is at the address. A group of short-term residents living together is not classified as a household, and neither is a group of people at an address where only visitors are staying.”

Household composition – Household composition classifies households according to the relationships between the household members. Households consisting of one family and no other people are classified according to the type of family (married, same-sex civil partnership or cohabiting couple family, or lone parent family) and the number of dependent children. Other households are classified by the number people, the number of dependent children, or whether the household consists only of students or only of people aged 65 and over. This definition is used in most results from the 2011 Census. In a small number of results an alternative classification is used that defines households by the age of the household members. It takes no account of the relationships between them. In results where this different definition is used it is clearly indicated.

Lone parent family – A lone parent family consists of a father or mother with his or her child(ren) where the parent does not have a spouse, same-sex civil partner or partner in the household and the child(ren) do not have a spouse, same-sex civil partner or child in the household. A lone grandparent with his or her grandchild(ren) are also considered a lone parent family if there are no children in the intervening generation present in the household (note that children of the grandparent may also be present if they are not parents or grandparents of the youngest generation).

Lone parent household – A lone parent household is a household that comprises a lone parent family and no other person. This definition is used in most results from the 2011 Census. In a small number of results a lone parent household is defined as a household that contains at least one lone parent family, but does not contain any married, same-sex civil partnership or cohabiting couples. When this definition is used it is clearly indicated.

Married couple household – A married couple family consists of a husband and wife with or without child(ren). The child(ren) may belong to both members of the couple or only one. Children are included in the family only if they are not themselves living with a spouse, same-sex civil partner or partner and do not have any children of their own in the household. A husband and wife with their grandchild(ren) are also considered a married couple family if there are no children in the intervening generation present in the household (note that children of the couple may also be present if they are not parents or grandparents of the youngest generation).

Married couple household – A married couple household is a household that comprises a married couple family and no other person. This definition is used in most results from the 2011 Census. In a small number of results a married couple household is defined as a household that contains at least one married couple. When this definition is used it is clearly indicated.

One family and no others (One family only) – A household consists of ‘one family and no others’ if there is only one family in the household and there are no non-family people (ungrouped individuals).

Same-sex civil partnership couple family – A same-sex civil partnership couple family consists of two same-sex civil partners with or without child(ren). The child(ren) may belong to either member of the couple. Children are included in the family only if they are not themselves living with a spouse, same-sex civil partner or partner and do not have any children of their own in the household. Same-sex civil partners with their grandchild(ren) are also considered a same-sex civil partnership family if there are no children in the intervening generation present in the household (note that children of the couple may also be present if they are not parents or grandparents of the youngest generation).

Same-sex civil partnership couple household – A same-sex civil partnership couple household is a household that comprises a same-sex civil partnership couple family and no other person. This definition is used in most results from the 2011 Census. In a small number of results a same-sex civil partnership couple household is defined as a household that contains at least one same-sex civil partnership couple and no married couples. When this definition is used it is clearly indicated.

Usual resident – The main population base for outputs from the 2011 Census is the usual resident population as at census day 27 March 2011. Although the population base for enumeration included non-UK short-term residents, this population is analysed separately and is not included in the main outputs from the 2011 Census. All outputs, unless specified, are produced using only usual residents of the UK. For 2011 Census purposes, a usual resident of the UK is anyone who, on census day, was in the UK and had stayed or intended to stay in the UK for a period of 12 months or more, or had a permanent UK address and was outside the UK and intended to be outside the UK for less than 12 months.
