  1. Table notes: HOH indicates respondent self-declared head of household. For nurse households the total sample is less than 153 (n = 119), as not all nurses were married or living with their spouse in Australia. Where the nurse is living with a parent, the occupational status of the parent head of household is reported in this table.
