Protocol - Household Roster - Relationships

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

The respondent is asked to list all the people who currently live in the household, beginning with the person who owns or rents the dwelling (householder), followed by the spouse or partner of that person, and then other household members. For each person listed, the respondent reports relationship to the householder and spouse of householder, sex, age, and marital status.

Specific Instructions:

Household roster questions are about the people who live in the household rather than the individual respondent; as a result, the questions need to be addressed to the head or other knowledgeable adult in the household. If annual household income questions are asked, household roster questions should precede them because the two sets of questions are linked.

Protocol:

1. Please tell me the names of the people who usually live in this household. Let’s start with the person or one of the persons who owns or rents this home.

LIST ON ROWS A-J BELOW. IF HOME IS IN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S NAME, LIST ANY OF THESE ON ROW A.

2. (Does/Do) (PERSON IN ROW A/you) have a spouse or unmarried partner who lives in the household?

LIST ON LINE B. IF THERE IS NO SPOUSE OR PARTNER, WRITE “NONE” IN ROW B.

3. Now, who else lives here?

LIST ADDITIONAL PERSONS ON ROWS C-J BELOW.

4. Have we forgotten anyone: such as babies or small children; roomers; people who usually live here, but are away temporarily-on business trips, at school, temporarily in a hospital, and so on?

YES……….LIST ADDITIONAL PERSONS ON ROWS C-J BELOW, THEN ASK Q5.

NO…………ASK Q5.

5. Are there any people currently staying here-visitors, including friends, or relatives-who do not usually live here? “VISITORS” ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE STAYED 4 OR MORE OF THE PREVIOUS 7 NIGHTS.

YES…………LIST VISITORS ON ROWS K-N BELOW, THEN ASK Q6.

NO…………..ASK Q6.

After Qs. 1-5, Ask Qs. 6-9 for each person.

6. What is (NAME’s/your) relationship to (PERSON IN ROW A/you)? SEE CODES BELOW ROSTER

7. What is NAME’s/your relationship to (PERSON IN ROW B/you)? SEE CODES BELOW ROSTER

8. CODE SEX, ASK IF NOT OBVIOUS: What is (NAME’s/your) sex, male or female?

9. How old (was/were) (NAME/you) on (his/her/your) last birthday?

10. IF 13 YRS OR OLDER, ASK: (Is/Are) (NAME/you) now married, widowed, divorced, separated, or (has/have) (he/she/you) never been married?

Personnel and Training Required

This question is administered by an interviewer with a paper-and-pencil or computer-assisted interview. The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews. The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

Equipment Needs

Either a paper-and-pencil or computer-assisted instrument may be used. If a computer-assisted instrument is used, computer software may be necessary to develop the instrument. The interviewer will require a laptop computer/handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Requirements

Measure Name:

Household Roster-Relationships

Release Date:

May 31, 2016

Definition

Question asking the respondent who lives in the household and about his or her relationship with them.

Purpose

Household rosters enumerate the people who live in the household and record some of the characteristics of those people (such as age and sex) and how they are related to one another. The data can be used to describe household size, structure, and composition. Household characteristics have an effect on the socioeconomics and lifestyles of the household inhabitants. Researchers are able to constitute family and nonfamily households from a household roster. This information also illustrates whether multiple generations of a family share the same residence.
