 Household type: Part A - Plain language definition - Category to which a person living alone or a group of persons occupying the same dwelling belong. There are two categories: non-family households and family households.
- A non-family household consists either of one person living alone or of two or more persons who share a dwelling, but do not constitute a family.
- Family households are divided into two subcategories: one-family households and multiple-family households.
- A one-family household consists of a single family (e.g., a couple with or without children).
- A multiple-family household is made up of two or more families occupying the same dwelling.

- Family household refers to a household that contains at least one census family, that is, a married couple with or without children, or a couple living common-law with or without children, or a lone parent living with one or more children (lone-parent family).
- One-family household refers to a single census family (with or without other persons) that occupies a private dwelling.
- Multiple-family household refers to a household in which two or more census families (with or without additional persons) occupy the same private dwelling.
- Non-family household refers to either one person living alone in a private dwelling or to a group of two or more people who share a private dwelling, but who do not constitute a census family.

 
Owner's Major Payments: The relatively high shelter costs to household income ratios for some households may have resulted from the difference in the reference period for shelter costs and household income data. The reference period for shelter costs data is 2006, while household income is reported for the year 2005. As well, for some households, the 2005 household income may represent income for only part of the year.
 
Gross rent: The relatively high shelter costs to household income ratios for some households may have resulted from the difference in the reference period for shelter costs and household income data. The reference period for shelter costs data is 2006, while household income is reported for the year 2005.
