Methodological note

Dwelling

A structurally separate and independent enclosure that, due to the manner in which it was built, rebuilt, transformed or adapted, is intended to be inhabited by people or, even if it was not, constitutes the normal residence of someone at the time the census was taken. By way of exception, enclosures which at the time of the census are being utilized for other purposes (such as those strictly being used as locales) are not considered dwellings, despite having been initially intended for use for human inhabitation.

Family dwelling

A dwelling intended for the inhabitation of one or various persons, not necessarily related to one another, which does not constitute a group.

surface area of a dwelling

Is measured from within its exterior walls, without considering uninhabitable basement and attic space. A dwelling's surface area includes 50% of the area of the terrace, if it is covered and unenclosed, and 100% if it is enclosed.
