Unit definitions
Dwellings See definition of household below.
Households A household is most commonly a group of persons living together who are generally, but not necessarily, related. They live in the same place and generally take their meals together. A person living alone comprises a household. To simplify the census count, the concept of household does not require that household members share either their meals or their budget. Instead, the basic criterion is whether or not they share a housing unit. Thus, the number of units will be the same as the number of households, except if some of the units are vacant.
Collective dwellings Persons living in institutions such as military barracks, hospitals, and boarding schools and cannot be directly connected to a head of household. Note that there may be private households living within the walls which contain institutional households, such as the household of a school or hospital director who occupies a separate housing unit in the school or hospital.
