Base for table

This table includes all female LS members enumerated at the 2001 Census who were then aged 16 or over and were enumerated in a private household.

NB: Age (at 2001) and sex were amended if the 2001 value was imputed or disagreed with the values in the 1991 Census (if available) and the Core file.

Cases with imputed values for marital status, economic activity status or number of dependent children in the household were excluded from this table.

Construction of variable: number of dependent chidren in household, 2001

This table uses the variable DPCH0 in the table ME01 unaltered except that some values have been grouped:

A dependent child is defined as a person aged 0-15 in a household (whether or not in a family) or aged 16-18, in full-time education and living in a family with his or her parent(s). However, s/he is not necessarily the child of the LS member.

Construction of variable: economic activity status in 2001

This table uses the variable ECOP0 in the table ME01 unaltered except that some values have been grouped:

'Unclassified' cases include people who have never worked as well as those who did not respond to the questions about economic activity in the 2001 Census.

ECOP0 was only coded for people aged 16-74 years.
