Household Characteristics

Household characteristics are used by the US Census to categorize the household by the type of relationship the people that live in that unit share and/or the gender of the person responsible for maintaining the household. One household includes all the people who occupy a housing unit as their usual place of residence. As defined by the Census: "Households are classified by type according to the sex of the householder and the presence of relatives. Examples include: married-couple family; male householder, no wife present; female householder, no husband present; spouse (husband/wife); child; and other relatives." The householder is typically the person in whose name the home is owned or rented.

Population / Households

The total population is the estimated number of people who live in a particular area. It includes estimates for all males, females, adults and children.

A household includes all the people who occupy a housing unit as their usual place of residence. For example, there might be four people in a family living in one house. This would count as four people under population, but only as one household.

Racial & Ethnic Diversity

Race and ethnicity is the estimated number of people who classify themselves as being a member of a particular racial or ethnic group. It includes estimates for all males, females, adults and children. As part of the 2000 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau separated the categories of "Race" and "Hispanic Origin" and considers them two separate concepts. Additionally, it is important to note that the 2000 Census allowed people for the first time to select more than one race category to describe their racial identities.
