B7. Type of living quarter
Concept and definitions:
A single family is a single housing structure that is occupied by an individual or by his household for residence only.
Combined residence and business: one housing structure which is used for both a residence and for some business activity such as a food stall or some other type of business.
Separate room within a house: A separate room/space within a housing structure which uses the same entrance. The person who occupies this room/space is a separate household from that which occupies the remainder of the house.
Separate room in a building: This is one room/space located in a house or building which is not a residence.
Shared living quarters: This is one house where two or more people live together where there are no partitions between the residences within that building (there is one kitchen and one living room to receive guests that are used by everyone).
Row housing units: Partitioning of a housing structure so that each person/household has a separate entrance.
Other: Any type other than those mentioned above.
This variable indicates the type of structure of living quarter of the household.
