Export examples of each and look at the values of the fields in the CSV.

From what I can see:

is_company = True (This is a company record)

is_company = False (This is a contact record)

parent_id = NOT SET (This record stands alone)

parent_id = SET (The record is a subsidiary to the record with id = parent_id)

child_ids = SET (The record has contacts with id = child_ids)
