Description
Quality description
These statistics apply the regional division of 1 January 2018 to the
whole time series. Data for annexed municipalities have been combined.
A family consists of a married or cohabiting couple or persons in a
registered partnership and their children living together; or either of the
parents and his or her children living together; or a married or cohabiting
couple and persons in a registered partnership without children. A family
with underage children is a family comprising at least one child aged under
18 living at home.

Families are grouped into the following types:
- married couple without children, opposite sexes
- married couple without children, same sex
- cohabiting couple without children, opposite sexes
- married couple with children, opposite sexes
- married couple with children, same sex
- cohabiting couple with children, opposite sexes
- registered male couple without children

Without children refers to a couple that has never had children or whose children no longer live with their parents.
Married and cohabiting couple with children includes not only couples with common children but also couples whose
children are not common. For data protection reasons, same-sex married couples and couples in registered partnerships
are classified in municipal tables together with opposite-sex married couples.
Number of children
The number of children refers to the number of children who are living at
home and have the status of a child. The number of children in families
with underage children refers to the number of children aged under 18
living at home.
