This dataset provides 2011 estimates that classify usual residents aged 16 and over in households in United Kingdom by adult lifestage. The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

Adult lifestage classifies adults in households by age, the number of people in the household, and the presence of dependent children. The definition of an adult used (aged 16 and over) is the alternative version used in a small number of census results.

These estimates provide new insight into the family structure of individuals that are available from the census for the first time.

In Northern Ireland this table is numbered QS108NI.

Statistical Disclosure Control
In order to protect against disclosure of personal information from the 2011 Census, there has been swapping of records in the Census database between different geographic areas, and so some counts will be affected. In the main, the greatest effects will be at the lowest geographies, since the record swapping is targeted towards those households with unusual characteristics in small areas.

More details on the ONS Census disclosure control strategy may be found on the Statistical Disclosure Control page on the ONS web site.
