covers the whole population and refers to the type of
housing in which a person usually resides at the time of the census. This covers
all persons who are usual residents in different types of living quarters, or
who do not have a usual residence and stay temporarily in some type of living
quarters, or who are roofless, sleeping rough or in emergency shelters, when the
census is taken.
Occupants are persons with their usual residence in the places
listed in the respective category.
Type of building can also be derived from the number of dwellings and
the use of building, by distinguishing between the residential and
non-residential buildings the criterion of the type of construction is also
considered. The number of dwellings does not include occupied provisional
premises, occupied business premises, dwellings used only for business purposes
and collective living quarters. Thus, the buildings are divided into four
One-dwelling building is a building with one dwelling
Two-dwelling building is a building with two dwellings
Three- or more dwelling building is a building with three or more dwellings
Non-residential and other buildings are buildings mostly used for
non-residential purposes or buildings which mostly contain premises other than
dwellings (business buildings, schools, various homes, etc.)
building with regard to use
is defined according to the way the building is used; whether it is used only
for residential purposes or it is used also for other purposes. If the building
is not used for residential purposes only, its use is defined regarding the
major part of floor space used for a certain purpose.
A living quarter
is housing which is the usual residence of one or more persons. The terms
‘Conventional dwellings’, ‘Other housing units’ and ‘Collective living quarters’
are defined as under the topic ‘Housing arrangements’.
Building with dwellings
is a structure containing at least one dwelling. Buildings containing only
premises other than dwellings by definition (occupied provisional premises,
business premises, collective living quarters) are not counted. The sum of
occupied conventional dwellings and other housing units represents ‘housing units’.
Conventional dwellings are
structurally separate and independent premises at fixed locations which are
designed for permanent human habitation and are, at the reference date, (a) used
as a residence, or (b) vacant, or (c) reserved for seasonal or secondary use.
means surrounded by walls and covered by a roof or ceiling so that one or more
persons can isolate themselves.
means having direct access from a street or a staircase, passage, gallery or
Dwellings for seasonal or secondary use are dwellings for leisure and recreation and
dwellings for the time of seasonal work.
Dwellings by type of building
refers to the number of dwellings in the building in which the dwelling is
Dwellings by period of construction
refers to the year when the building in which the dwelling is placed was
Average number of dwellings per building
is the ratio between the number of all dwellings in
the buildings and the number of all buildings with dwellings in a certain
administrative spatial unit
Other housing units
are huts, cabins, shacks, shanties, caravans, houseboats, barns, mills, caves or
any other shelter used for human habitation at the time of the census,
irrespective if it was designed for human habitation.
Collective living quarters
are premises which are designed for habitation by large groups of individuals or
several households and which are used as the usual residence of at least one
person at the time of the census.
Occupied conventional dwellings, other housing units
and collective living quarters together represent ‘living quarters’. Any
‘living quarter’ must be the usual
residence of at least one person.
Occupied conventional dwellings
are conventional dwellings which are the usual residence of one or more persons
at the time of the census.
Unoccupied conventional dwellings
are conventional dwellings which are not the usual residence of any person at
the time of the census. This category includes dwellings for seasonal or
secondary use. Conventional dwellings with persons temporarily present but not
included in the census are classified under the category "Dwellings for seasonal
or secondary use", therefore are treated as unoccupied conventional dwellings.
for business activity is a
dwelling in which nobody lives and is entirely used for performing business
activity. In architectural sense, the dwelling is not converted into business
premises. This dwelling is not included in the number of dwellings.
ownership refers to the ownership of the dwelling and not to that of the land
on which the dwelling stands.
Owner-occupied dwellings are those where at least one
occupant of the dwelling owns parts or the whole of the dwelling.
ownership refers to ownership within the framework of a housing cooperative.
dwellings are those where at least one occupant pays a rent for the occupation
of the dwelling, and where no occupant owns parts or the whole of the dwelling.
Useful floor space
is defined as:
the floor space measured inside the outer walls excluding
non-habitable cellars and attics and, in multi-dwelling buildings, all common
the total floor space of rooms falling under the
concept of ‘room’.
space of a dwelling is the sum of useful floor space of all rooms, kitchen and other
utility spaces (bathroom, toilet, and hallway). The area of the room and
kitchen, which are architecturally separated from the dwelling but are used as a
part of the dwelling all the year round, is also taken into account. The area of
terraces and balconies, architecturally separated utility spaces, garages,
cellars and attics unsuitable for living is not taken into account. As regards
attics, only floor space
of the ceiling is at
1.6m is taken into account.
Average useful floor space of the dwelling
is the ratio between the total useful floor space of dwellings and the number of
all dwellings in certain administrative spatial unit.
floor space per person is calculated per each individual dwelling occupied by persons. It is
the ratio between the useful floor space of dwelling minus floor space for
business activity and the number of
persons in this dwelling
Net floor space

of occupants of a housing unit is the number of people for whom the housing unit
is the usual residence. Population are persons with registered permanent and/or temporary residence in Slovenia who
live or intend to live in Slovenia for one year or more and are not temporarily
absent from Slovenia for a year or more.
useful floor space in square metres or the number of rooms to the number of
occupants, as specified under the topic ‘number of occupants’. Member States
report on the density standard measured by the ‘useful floor space’, or, if not
possible, by the ‘number of rooms’.
installation of water supply, sewage, electricity, gas or central heating if
certain installation is in at least one premise of the dwelling. It does not
matter if the installation is connected to a public system or some other object.
Water supply system refers to the piped water in the housing unit.
Toilet facilities refer to the flush toilet in the housing unit.
A bathing facility is any facility designed to wash the whole body and
includes shower facilities (fixed bath or shower).
Type of heating:
a housing unit is considered as centrally heated if
heating is provided either from a community heating centre or from an
installation built in the building or in the housing unit, established for
heating purposes, without regard to the source of energy.
the bearing structure of the building
is the material which constitutes the most of the construction (bearing) walls
and in the case of the skeleton construction the frame of the building.
Floors in a building are counted from the ground floor up. The ground floor
and the attic are not counted as floors.
of dwelling in the building
shows the location of the dwelling in the building – in the basement, ground
floor, floor above the ground floor, in two or more floors or attic. Floors are
counted from the ground floor up. The ground floor and attic are not counted as
floors. If a dwelling is in two or more floors but in a multi-dwelling or multi
storey building (e.g. block of flats, skyscraper), the position of the dwelling
is defined by the number of the floor on which the entrance to the dwelling is
located. A dwelling has a telephone if there is a connection to a
stationary telephone network in the dwelling.
spaces in the dwelling are kitchen, bathroom and toilet. A
dwelling does not have these premises if they are in the same building but out
of the dwelling or if they are outside the building in the yard (e.g. toilet).
