Viera Doktorikova Slovakia Margareta Carlsson Sweden Peter Stokes United Kingdom Andres Vikat UNECE Paolo ValenteUNECE Scope of Questions Demographic Age Sex

Legal Marital Status De Facto Marital Status Marital history and fertility Household and Family Household Living quarters Child Couple Three-generation household Household and Family (contd) Reconstituted family Extended family

Relationship Family Status Family Nuclei and Nuclear Families Private Households Tenure Other Topics Summary Very high compliance with the 2010 recommendations for the demographic variables Good compliance with the recommendations

concerning household and family characteristics 6 issues were raised that could be changed for the 2020 census round Should de facto marital status be elevated to a core topic? From the point of view of actual living arrangements and household structure of the population, this aspect is even more important than the legal marital status A great majority of UNECE countries (45) collected this information in the 2010 round

(CES Recommendations paragraphs 216221) Should the use of a mixed classification of de jure and de facto marital status be discouraged explicitly? In the 2010 round, at least six countries still used such classification, which would not allow for comparison of their data with others on either of these aspects. (CES Recommendations paragraphs 209221) Mixed classification question: example 1 Never married

In a registered marriage In an unregistered marriage Widow(er) Divorced (Separated) Legal marital status not known Mixed classification question: example 2 Never married Married

Additional question: Is your marriage registered? yes/no Widow(er) Divorced (Separated) 1. Does not capture a consensual union if the respondent provides legal marital status as the first answer. 2. Does not capture legal marital status for those who indicate that their marriage is

not registered. Should consensual union and registered partnership be distinguished in UNECE typology of family nuclei? (CES Recommendations paragraphs 533537) A number of countries have legal provisions for registered partnerships, both for same and opposite sex. Currently, it is recommended to distinguish them as a category of the legal marital status (CES Recommendations paragraph 213)

Should more focus be put on reconstituted families? Reconstituted families are one of emerging family types Many countries (at least 20) do not identify reconstituted families If we want to get more (detailed) data, there is a need for some guidance on a simple way to identify reconstituted families and to give reasons for the need of identifying them (CES Recommendations paragraphs 498, 538542) Should senior semi-independent housing be

addressed? This refers to facilities designed for population above a certain age, where residents have separate units, but health and personal needs services are available to the residents on an increasing basis as needed. Units within the facility designed for seniors who have transitioned to greater care should be included in this definition. This is an important trend where there is no clear guidance as to classification: Group quarters, household, other? (CES Recommendations paragraphs 484488) Should senior semi-independent housing be

addressed? 13 countries private household 17 countries institutional household 14 countries not relevant 6 countries various criteria to classify to either as private or institutional Should same sex unions be included as a noncore topic? Same sex unions are a topic of increasing interest in several countries. Should it be explicitly recommended that where these estimates are to be derived, a separate question or response is needed?

Inferring same-sex unions from reported marital status and reported sex has proven to provide unreliable data. (CES Recommendations paragraphs 502504) Should same sex unions be included as a noncore topic? Same sex unions are a topic of increasing interest in several countries. Should it be explicitly recommended that where these estimates are to be derived, a separate question or response is needed? Inferring same-sex unions from reported marital status and reported sex has proven to provide

unreliable data. (CES Recommendations paragraphs 502504) The Questions 1. De facto marital status as core topic? 2. Discourage mixing de jure and de facto marital status? 3. Distinguish consensual union and registered partnership in family nuclei? 4. More focus on reconstituted families? 5. Address senior semi-independent housing? 6. Same sex unions as a non-core topic?
