Supplementary notes

According to the definition by the U.S. Census Bureau a household "includes all of the people who occupy a housing unit. One person in each household is designated as the “householder.” In most cases, this is the person, or one of the people, in whose name the home is owned, being bought, or rented."

The Census defines a married couple household as a husband and a wife.
