Over time, we aim to produce information on the number and size of households, and on family composition.
Each year, we aim to expand the breadth, depth and accuracy of our Research Outputs on households and families. That said, this will depend on the availability of the data and its statistical quality.

These Research Outputs are estimates of household size from the Structure Preserving Estimator (SPREE) method. These outputs are not official statistics.
