The marital status describes the familial situation of a person. A distinction is made between single, married, divorced and widowed persons, as well as their equivalents in the case of registered partnerships.

The results come from the Microcensus Labour Force Survey (sample survey) and the Register-based Census / Register-based Labour Market Statistics (administrative data).

The data on marital status collected as part of the Register-based Labour Market Statistics is based on administrative registers.

The publication of the Microcensus Labour Force Survey refers to the previous year, that of the Register-based Census / Register-based Labour Market Statistics to the year before that.
