Since 2011, the source is register-based household statistics. Reported figures are based on estimated relations between those who occupy the same housing unit. Figures refer to all households defined as one parent families. Children are classified based on four different types of relations. Biological parents with children and adoptive parents with children are the two most common types of relations. Children classified by guardianship and ''Other person'' account for a small share. Individuals are classified as children regardless of age if they live with their biological or adoptive parents and don’t have any children or partner in the same household. Single parents with children who share a housing unit with other occupants are not included in the reported figures.
