Output

Standard output

The partnership status classification master version is an input classification only. Survey-specific aggregated versions can be used for both input and output.

The core module collects and outputs at level 1 of the partnership status classification – that is 'partnered' and 'non-partnered'.

Note: Guidelines for release of civil union data

Due to the relatively small numbers of civil unions, the relatively small size of sample surveys, and the possible respondent misinterpretation of what a civil union is, there could be confidentiality and/or data quality concerns, such as the accuracy of civil union data. For example, the civil union figures from the 2006 Census of Population and Dwellings were significantly higher than was expected and are believed to be due to respondent misinterpretation regarding what a civil union is. For the social marital status variable in the 2006 Census 'civil union partners' were not output separately, but were included within the 'partnered, not further defined' category. Subject matter areas should contact Population Statistics and Statistical Methods for guidance on the release of civil union data.

The residual categories may be output separately or combined. Where a combination item of residuals is to be used in output, this item should be labelled ‘Not Elsewhere Included’ and should have a footnote indicating its composition.

The residual categories are defined in Glossary and references.

The full classification is available in Download of classification.
