Unit definitions
Dwellings A dwelling is any individual house, hut, shack, apartment, hostel, or tenement housing which has been constructed, made, converted or arranged to serve as lodging. This also includes a premise not intended as habitation but being used for such on the census date. Examples are a boat, train car, the dwelling of a teacher who lives in a school, of a caretaker who lives in the building he/she takes care of, the dwelling of a doorman who lives in the office, etc.
Households The dwelling may be inhabited by a single person, i.e., a person who provides for his/her own food and lodging needs alone. The household may also be made up of several people, i.e., two or more persons who come together to provide for their lodging and food needs. Persons who live in this type of household may be relatives (such as parents and children) or they may not be related (as in the case of two or more friends). There may also be relatives and non-relatives together (such as parents, children and an employee).
Collective dwellings These are buildings or lodgings intended to lodge groups of persons who live together at the time of the census for reasons of health, education, punishment or other, similar, reasons which are unrelated to living in a family household. The following are included in this category: barracks or other military housing; hospitals; asylums and clinics; jails; penitentiaries and correctional facilities; hotels; motels; boarding houses and guest houses (family houses with more than five boarders); boarding schools; workers camps and other, similar, communities.
