How multiple-income family types differ across cities
As India and Indian consumers changerapidly, there is one churn that hasalready played out in urban India. The joint family is dead and the extendedfamily is dying. It is now the era of nuclear families
Households in India can be classified into three types: nuclear families where one married couple liveswith, in some cases, unmarried siblings; extended families which have more than one married couple fromdifferent generations; and joint families where more than one married couple of the same generation livetogether, which are essentially multi-income families.That the joint family system is out of mode in urban India is clear from the fact that only 8% of thehouseholds belong to this category in India’s top 112 cities. Nuclear households dominate the urbanlandscape with almost 70% of households falling in this category, while extended families take up theremaining 23%, a sizeable share. This reflects, to some extent, the lack of housing capacity toaccommodate nuclear families, a status that upwardly mobile urban Indians seem to aspire to.
