Child dependency status

The indicator classifications can be output on their own or embedded into the family type or household composition classifications. The child dependency status classification must be embedded into another classification, usually family type or household composition. It cannot be output on its own.

The survey area may wish to output information about dependent young persons who are engaged in study. This can be done by cross-tabulating information from the 'dependent young person indicator' with information about participation in study. This cross-tabulation will provide information about individuals in terms of their dependency and participation in study.

One purpose of the survey may be to output information about those dependent children and dependent young persons who are not currently receiving a benefit. This may be done provided the survey collects information about sources of income. The sources of income classification may be cross-tabulated with the indicator classification(s), providing a measure of dependent children and dependent young persons that are not receiving a benefit.

The 'child dependency status' classification is designed to be flexible. Survey areas may use level 1 of the classification, or may aggregate certain combinations of categories at level 2 as required. To learn more about the flexibility of this classification, and what can be done to meet your needs, contact Classifications and Standards.

The residual categories are defined in Glossary and references.

The full classification is available on the main page.
