Exclusions: The STATA code excludes various cases for whom data on living arrangements is not available. In addition a further 570 cases have a missing value; some have missing data, others are staff in communal establishments.
Imputation The STATA code sets source variables to missing where they are imputed, except for household relationships. Since there are three alternative variables which identify imputation in household relationships, the STATA code creates four versions of the outcome variable (FAM01C91): one including imputed household relationships, and one each using RELHIMP, RELFIMP or RELPIMP to exclude imputation. For further details of these see note on imputation of relationships.
Notes

'Couple' means married or cohabiting couple. 'Child' means a never-married person of any age who is living with a parent and is not in a co-residing couple or the parent, step-parent or grandparent of any other household member. These are the 1991 Census definitions; this variable has been created to provide comparable coding with the 1991 variable, HOUSEFAM9.
