Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Household Roster-Relationships   #011400


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


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.
