Note: For the purpose of this table, an adult member of a family unit is either a lone parent or a member of a couple. Never married persons (regardless of age) living with a parent or parents are defined as children provided those persons are themselves not part of a separate family unit. In addition users should note that the grossing factors assigned to each spouse within a family unit may differ.
