UK family and household structure

Posted by on in Cohabitation

The Office for National Statistics has published a bulletin presenting annual statistics on family and household structure in the UK. A family is a married, civil partnered or cohabiting couple with or without children, or a lone parent with at least one child. Children may be dependent or non-dependent. Types of family include married couple families, cohabiting couple families and lone parent families.

Work and Pensions Minister Maria Miller promised a new child maintenance system that was "fairer for children" as she announced proposals to remove the exemption from maintenance liability for some part-time public servants.

Family organisations, including Relate, Netmums and Gingerbread, will receive Government funding to deliver national online and telephone support services.
