Household Reference Person (HRP) indicator

Mnemonic (reference code): HRPPUK

Definition: This derived variable identifies the person who is the reference person for the household. For a person living alone, that person is the Household Reference Person (HRP). If the household contains only one family (with or without ungrouped individuals) the HRP is the same as the Family Reference Person (FRP). If there is more than one family in the household, the HRP is chosen from among the FRPs using the same criteria as for choosing the FRP (economic activity, then age, then order on the form). If there is no family, the HRP is chosen from the individuals using the same criteria.
