Households This is the person or group of people that live under the same roof and that at least for their nutrition, depend on a common fund. These people tend to conduct a unification of their income, through the constitution of a common budget, and establish the shared use of durable or non-durable goods. Generally, this group is integrated by a collection of people linked together by family ties, but it is not necessary that they be relatives in order to comply with the definition of the household. It can also be constituted by a single person.
