>> Definitions and explanations contents

A private household (household) is a group of people living together and sharing their income for covering the basic costs of living (accommodation, food, other consumer goods, etc.) or a person living alone.

Data on households refer to private households if not otherwise stated.

An institutional household
is a group of people whose food, accommodation, etc., is provided for by the institution in which they live.

Type of household
is the characteristic of household irrespective of whether people in them are living in family or non-family communities.

A family household is a household composed of:

members of one family;
members of several families;
members of one or several families and persons who are not members of these families but live together and share their income for covering the basic costs of living.

A non-family household is:

a single-person household;
a community of two or more persons who are related (e.g. a brother and a sister, a grandmother and a grandson) but are not a family;
a community of two or more persons who are not related.

Data on the number of households and the average size of households for the 1991 Census were recalculated so that migrant workers are no longer considered to be members of households.

Average size of household
is the ratio between the number of population living in an administrative spatial unit in private households and the number of private households in this unit.

Tenure status refers to arrangements under which a household occupies all or part of a dwelling.

One-family household
is a household where all members belong to one family or a household in which members of one family live together with other people who do not belong to any family.

Multi-family household is a household where members belong to at least two families or a household in which members of at least two families live together with other people who do not belong to any family.

Garage could be:
- part of an individual house
- part of a multi-dwelling house
- an independent construction
- in a parking garage (above ground or under ground).

Ownership of the garage is not important, so a household can use own and/or rented garage.

Production of food comprises production for home consumption and/or for market regardless of the area and ownership of the land used for this purpose.
