HEADS OF HOUSEHOLD
HOUSEHOLD REFERENCE PERSON
HRP

'HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD' WAS ORIGINALLY DEFINED BY THE OFFICE FOR NATIONAL STATISTICS (ONS) AS “THE ELDEST HOUSEHOLDER, WITH MALES TAKING PRECEDENCE OVER FEMALES IN THE CASE OF COUPLES OR NON-RELATED JOINT HOUSEHOLDERS”. FROM 2001 ONS STARTED USING 'HOUSEHOLD REFERENCE PERSON' WHICH IS DEFINED AS “THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR OWNING OR RENTING OR WHO IS OTHERWISE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE ACCOMMODATION. IN THE CASE OF JOINT HOUSEHOLDERS, THE PERSON WITH THE HIGHEST INCOME TAKES PRECEDENCE”. IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT THIS TERM IS NOT RESTRICTED TO THESE PRECISE DEFINITIONS, AS THEY MAY CHANGE OVER TIME AND ACROSS DIFFERENT STUDIES.
SCOPE NOTE ADDED APRIL 2006.
