Hello Nirina,

a husband is a married male household head. A wife is a married female
household member reporting relationship to the household head =
"spouse". (Almost always there will be men heading the households, but
not in 100%. So you might want just to check if the genders are
opposite, and relationship to head is "spouse". But then again, what
to do with M-M or F-F partnerships?)

Variables needed: relationship to household head, gender, marital status.

In some datasets there is a distinction between households and
families (within a household), which might make it easier dealing with
multigenerational households.

What data are you working with?

Best regards, Sergiy
