This dataset provides Census 2021 estimates that classify households in England and Wales by the relationships between household members (household composition). The estimates are as at Census Day, 21 March 2021.

Summary

Households according to the relationships between members.

One-family households are classified by:

* the number of dependent children
* family type (married, civil partnership or cohabiting couple family, or lone parent family)

Other households are classified by:

* the number of people
* the number of dependent children
* whether the household consists only of students or only of people aged 66 and over

Quality Statement

Data about household relationships might not always look consistent with legal partnership status. This is because of complexity of living arrangements and the way people interpreted these questions. Take care when using these two variables together.
