Dwellings Housing unit is a building or part of it with walls and ceiling, virtuous for residence of one or more household regardless of its occupancy at time of census. For the census purposes, each occupied place at time of the census is considered as a housing unit whether designated for use as shops.
Households A household, consisting of one person or more, with a head, sharing with each other one separated housing unit or part of it. The members of household participate in expenditures from the income of head of household or from some household members.
Collective dwellings Group of persons without a head of household sharing with each other one collective housing unit and don't participate in residence arrangements such as lodgers of hotels, prisons and hospitals, students, and so on. Armed forces residing in camps or in other military institutions are excluded from this definition. Collective household also includes every group of persons (6 persons or more) residing in a conventional housing unit, with no relative ties and each one of them depends on himself for living even if he participates with others in some meals.
