Schoolchildren and students in full-time education studying away from their family home are treated as usually resident at their term-time address. Basic demographic information only (name, sex, age, marital status and relationship) is collected at their non term-time address (their ‘home’ or ‘vacation’ address). The information on families, household size and household composition for their non term-time address does not include them.
