Household status
Private households are defined according to the 'household-dwelling' concept. The household-dwelling concept considers all persons living in a housing unit to be members of the same household, such that there is one household per occupied housing unit.
The category 'Persons living in a private household' comprises 'Persons in a family nucleus' and 'Persons not in a family nucleus'. The category 'Persons in a family nucleus' comprises all persons who belong to a private household that contains a family nucleus of which they are a member. 'Persons not in a family nucleus' comprises all persons who either belong to a non-family household or to a family household without being member of any family nucleus in that household.
A non-family household can be a one-person household ('Living alone') or a multiperson household without any family nucleus. The category 'Not living alone' comprises persons that live either in a multiperson household without any family nucleus or in a family household without being member of any family nucleus in that household.
Current activity status
'Current activity status' is the current relationship of a person to economic activity, based on a reference period of one month during November 2011. For a small subset, where available, the activity status was based on the economic activity of the person on the reference date of November 30th, 2011.
In ascribing a single activity status to each person, priority is given to the status of 'employed' in preference to 'unemployed', and to the status of 'unemployed' in preference to 'not economically active'.
In lieu of using the age of 15 years on the reference date as the national minimum age for economic activity, persons who turned 15 years of age in the reference year or younger were defined as being under the minimum age for economic activity, this being the criterion for attending mandatory elementary school at the reference date.
