Figures may not add to total due to random rounding.
a 'Movable dwelling' includes mobile homes and other movable dwellings such as houseboats, recreational vehicles and railroad cars.
b The household includes a single couple (without children). Other persons related or unrelated to the couple may also be present.
c The household includes either a couple with children or a lone parent and his or her children. Other persons related or unrelated to the census family may also be present.
d 'Bedrooms' refers to rooms in a private dwelling that are designed mainly for sleeping purposes even if they are now used for other purposes, such as guest rooms and television rooms. Also included are rooms used as bedrooms now, even if they were not originally built as bedrooms, such as bedrooms in a finished basement. Bedrooms exclude rooms designed for another use during the day such as dining rooms and living rooms even if they may be used for sleeping purposes at night. By definition, one-room private dwellings such as bachelor or studio apartments have zero bedrooms.
e 'Rooms' refers to enclosed areas within a private dwelling which are finished and suitable for year-round living. The number of rooms of a private dwelling includes kitchens, bedrooms and finished rooms in the attic or basement. The number of rooms of a private dwelling excludes bathrooms, halls, vestibules and rooms used solely for business purposes. Partially divided rooms are considered to be separate rooms if they are considered as such by the respondent (e.g., L-shaped dining-room and living-room arrangements).
f Refers to an indicator of the level of crowding in a private dwelling. It is calculated by dividing the number of persons in the household by the number of rooms in the dwelling.
g Includes data up to May 10, 2016.
h Refers to whether the dwelling is in need of repairs. This does not include desirable re-modelling or additions.
i Refers to the proportion of average total income of household which is spent on shelter costs.Source: Compiled by the Community Accounts Unit based on information provided from the Census of Population 2016, Statistics Canada.
