Training Tip: Relationship to Head of Household Data Element
To further align reporting with the new data standards, we will begin pulling information on household relationships through the new data element Relationship to Head of Household. This is a required Universal Data Element for all clients and it is critically important that it is completed on project entry as we begin utilizing the field for reporting.
Data element 3.15 – Relationship to Head of Household is located on the Entry Assessment and should be collected at project entry for every client. Identify the head of household and the relationship of all other household members to the head of household for each household at project entry. There cannot be more than one head of household for any given project entry.
**If the client is being served as an individual, the relationship should be indicated as “Self (head of household)”.
