Concepts
  • DWELLING:  A separate and independent place which was built, rebuilt, enlarged or converted to be used as a private accommodation, and that is not totally occupied for other purposes during the reference period. Separate means hat the place is enclosured by classic or any other type of walls, covered, and allowing a person or group of persons to sleep, cook and shelter from intemperate weather, apart from other members of the collectivity. Independent means that its occupants do not have to pass or go through any other dwelling to get in or out the dwelling they live in.
  • HOUSEHOLD DWELLING:  A separate, independent place which, due to the way in which it has been built, rebuilt, extended or converted, is normally intended to accommodate only one family, on the condition that it is not being completely for other purposes at the time of reference. Family accommodation may be of one of two types: classic family accommodation and non-classic family accommodation.
  • REFERENCE PERIOD:  The length of time for which data are collected, e.g. a specific day, month or year.
