This is one of the set of Key Statistics tables produced from the 2001 Census. The Key Statistics tables give summary results from the 2001 Census, presented as cross-classifications of variables in tabular format. This table provides information in counts and percentages on Number of rooms, Amenities, Central Heating and Lowest Floor Level.
A household is 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. The count of the number of rooms in a household’s accommodation does not include bathrooms, toilets, halls or landings, or rooms that can only be used for storage.
Occupancy rating provides a measure of under-occupancy and over-crowding. It relates the actual number of rooms to the number of rooms ‘required’ by the members of the household
