Family Structure
Household by Type indicates the number of households within the designated ministry area divided into seven categories based upon head of household.
  • Single Male: Households which consist of a single male person.
  • Single Female: Households which consist of a single female person.
  • Married Couple: Household of two persons, married to each other, with or without children or other persons present.
  • Other Family Male/Female Head: A family with a male or female head of household and no spouse of the householder present.
  • Non-family Male/Female Head: A household with two or more unrelated persons living together. One person designates himself/herself as the head of household.
Households with Children 0 to 18 is a breakdown of the persons who live in occupied households and have children under 19 years of age in the home. This variable is sub-divided into four categories.
  • Married Couple Family: Household with children which contain a married couple.
  • Other Family Male/Female Head: Household with a family of one spouse and children. These are generally single parent households.
  • Non-Family: A household with two or more unrelated persons living together. One person designates himself/herself as the head of household.
Population by Household Type describes the category of household. The Census designates three different household categories.
  • Family: All persons within a family household. A family household consists of a householder and one or more other persons who are related to the householder by birth, marriage or adoption. All persons in the household who are related to the householder are regarded as members of his or her family. Not all households contain families since a household may comprise a group of unrelated persons or one person living alone.
  • Non-Family: Two or more unrelated individuals living together (e.g.; roommates) or single person households.
  • Group Quarters: A type of residence inhabited by 10 or more persons, unrelated to the householder (for example, college dormitories, military barracks, institutions).
