Report Definitions- Household, Client, Partner, Individuals, Adult, Child

Household 

Individuals are grouped into household profiles (“Households”) in Link2Feed based on the discretion of the user. “Household” reports count the entire household as a unit.

Example- Bob, Mary and Linda are in the same household profile, so they would be counted as 1 household.

Client

The person whose name was at the top of the page when the visit was recorded. NOTE: The “Client” in reports is not necessarily the same thing as the “Primary Household Member” indicated in the household profile.

Example- Bob, Mary and Linda live in the same household. Mary is designated as the “Primary” household member. I search for “Bob” and enter into the household under his profile. I see his name at the top of the page and record a visit. Bob’s information will be used in report sections that say “: Client” for that visit.

Individuals

The people who are selected on the Visit page under the “Who from the household is receiving services for this visit” (those who the food is benefitting) section.

Example 1- If Bob, Mary and Linda live in the same household and all of their names were selected on the Visit page under the  “‘Who from the household is receiving services for this visit” section, all of their information will be used in report sections that say “: Individuals”.

Example 2- If Bob, Mary and Linda live in the same household and only Bob and Mary were selected on the Visit page under the “‘Who from the household is receiving services for this visit” section, only Bob and Mary’s information will be used in report sections that say “: Individuals” for that visit (Linda’s information would not be included).

Partner

The individual(s) in the home who have the relationship status (as it relates to the “Client” – see above) as Spouse, Boyfriend/Girlfriend or Common Law Partner.

Example 1-Bob, Mary and Linda live in the same household and Linda’s relationship to Bob is “Boyfriend/Girlfriend”. If Bob is the “Client” (see above) and Linda was selected on the Visit page under the “‘Who from the household is receiving services for this visit” section, Linda’s information will be used in report sections that say “: Partner".

Example 1- Bob, Mary and Linda live in the same household and Linda’s relationship to Bob is “Boyfriend/Girlfriend”. If Linda is the “Client” (see above) and Bob was selected on the Visit page under the “‘Who from the household is receiving services for this visit” section, Bob’s information will be used in report sections that say “: Partner".
