  • What does the 2011 Census tell us about concealed families living in multi-family households in England and Wales? 06-Feb-2014
    This analysis presents a summary of concealed families in England and Wales using 2011 Census data. A concealed family is one living in a multi-family household in addition to the primary family, such as a young couple living with parents. Each family is assigned a Family Reference Person (FRP). Where there is more than one FRP in the household, the Household Reference Person (HRP) is chosen from the FRPs based on economic activity and then age, and finally order on the census form. The HRP is normally therefore the oldest full-time worker in most households and identifies the primary family in the household. Analyses of concealed family types and change over time are reported at the national, regional and local levels.
