Definitions and data sources

The first graph shows the proportion of working-age households where the 'household reference person' (which is the person with the highest income in the household) is not in paid work, with the data broken down by age group and tenure.

For those who are in social housing, the second graph shows the same information broken down by local authority rather than age group.

The data source for both graphs is the 2001 Census (table s13).

Overall adequacy of the indicator: medium.  Clearly, the sample sizes are large but the self-definition of work status might mean that there are certain biases in the data.
