This dataset provides 2011 estimates that classify households in United Kingdom by the household lifestage of the Household Reference Person (HRP). The estimates are as at census day, 27 March 2011.

Household lifestage classifies households according to the age of the Household Reference Person , whether they are in a one- or two-person household, and for two-person households, the presence of dependent children in the household.

These estimates, available from the census for the first time, provide new insight into the household structure.

In Northern Ireland this table is numbered QS109NI.

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.
