NUMPERHH
Number of people in household

Codes

This is a 4-digit numeric variable.

Description

NUMPERHH is an integer valued variable indicating the number of people living in the household.
Households can be uniquely identified by the combination of CNTRY, YEAR and SERIAL.

Comparability

NUMPERHH is constructed by the Minnesota Population Center staff.

Users should note that the British census of 1881 was a de facto census, and Norway 1875, 1900 and 1910 use both the de facto and de jure rules. All other censuses in the current release were de jure censuses. In de facto censuses, individuals are enumerated at their location on census night. By contrast, de jure censuses enumerate individuals at their permanent residence, even if they were not physically there for the enumeration day.

This may affect NUMPERHH in families and households where some members are periodically absent, for example, because of their occupation.
