These data were obtained from the 2001 Census, Key Statistics. The table provides information in numbers and percentages on population by Household Spaces and Accommodation type.
A household was defined as one person living alone, or a group of people (not necessarily related) living at the same address with common housekeeping – that is, sharing either a living room or sitting room or at least one meal a day.
A household space is the accommodation occupied by an individual household or, if unoccupied, available for an individual household. The distinction between second residence/ holiday accommodation and vacant accommodation for unoccupied household spaces is based on information provided by the enumerator. Households that returned a form but which prove to be all visitor households are classified as second/ holiday homes in output.
An unoccupied dwelling is classified as second/holiday home if at least one of the household spaces within it (or the single household space if the dwelling is unshared) is a second/holiday home.
Accommodation type describes the type of accommodation occupied by an individual household, or if unoccupied, available for an individual household, for example the whole of a terraced house or a flat in a purpose-built block of flats.
