Comparing Data Sources on Families and Households (Pdf 171Kb)
The ONS publishes estimates of families and households using the Labour Force Survey between ten yearly censuses. The LFS has been chosen as the preferred source of estimates on these topics due to its large sample size, long time series and timeliness, and because it provides estimates on a consistent basis for the whole UK. However the LFS is not the only source of data on families and households. This document provides a brief guide to the LFS and to alternative sources of data on this topic.

Population Trends - Family building intentions in England and Wales: trends, outcomes and interpretations, Summer 2003 (Pdf 116Kb)
This article presents and analyses women’s childbearing intentions collected in the General Household Survey (GHS). Data from the 21 surveys from 1979 to 2001 show that over that period there has been a fall in women’s intended numbers of births. However the latest data (from the 1998, 2000 and 2001 surveys) show that the average number of children intended is still around two, somewhat higher than the average number of children current fertility rates suggest women will have.

Population Trends - Mothers with living children and children with living mothers: the role of fertility and mortality in the period 1911-2050 (Pdf 97Kb)
Whether an individual has one or more surviving children at a given age and/or a surviving parent depends both on fertility (not only number of children, but also timing of childbearing) and mortality. We consider the contribution of changes in mortality and fertility to past and likely future trends on availability of such kin.

Population Trends - The decline of intensive inter-generational care of older people in Great Britain, 1985-1995, Winter 2002 (Pdf 98Kb)
There are increasing concerns about the future availability of informal care for older people, particularly care by their children. This article explores past trends in the provision of informal care by children/children-in-law to their older parents/parents-in-law between 1985 and 1995 in Great Britain, using successive General Household Survey data. The article suggests that, during this period, there was a decline in coresident intergenerational care and that this was associated with a decline in highly intensive intergenerational care.
