Nigerian Local Government Area Geodemographic Classification System and Profiler

"In a nut-shell, a geodemographic classification system is an attempt to simplify a large and complex body of information about people, where and how they live, work or recreate. It is developed on geographical ideas that similar people with similar characteristics are more likely to live within the same locality and that such area types will be distributed in different locations across geographical space.

Child Dependency Status Standard Classification

"Child dependency is an important variable in determining the composition of families and households. Census and many other surveys (eg Household Labour Force Survey, New Zealand Income Survey, and Household Economic Survey) use the child dependency classifications to derive information about dependent and non-dependent children. Three classifications are included in the scope of this standard: dependent child under 18 indicator classification; dependent young person indicator classification; child dependency status classification.

Age – New Zealand Standard Classification

"Age is a flat classification with single-year categories from 0 years to 119 years inclusive, plus a category for 120 years and over. Classifications for date of birth are required because age is derived from the day, month and year a person is born. Date of birth is derived from three flat classifications: date of birth day, date of birth month and date of birth year. Day has single categories 01 to 31 (representing the days of the month). Month has single categories 01 to 12 (representing the months of the year).
