National Household Survey (NHS)
Economic family status of person, category
Economic family status refers to whether or not the person is a member of an economic family and, if so, his or her status in that economic family. This is a derived variable. It is derived from the responses to questions about the relationships among the people who live in the household.
Note: When information displays, such as tables, combine information on economic families and persons who are not living in economic families, the population is called: Economic families and persons not in economic families.
Person refers to an individual and is the unit of analysis for most social statistics programs.
