FAMILY WITHIN THE HOUSEHOLD

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Famille à l'intérieur du ménage

Definition:
The family within the household is defined as those members of the household who are related, to a specific degree, through blood, adoption or marriage. The degree of relationship used in determining the limits of the family in this sense is dependent upon the uses to which the data are to be put and so cannot be established for world-wide use.
