ValueMeaning
0Only household in dwelling

2Subsequent household in multiple-household dwelling

Notes: Codes 0, 1, 2 have two distinct meanings, depending on whether household is private or non-private. So this variable must be used in conjunction with, say, TENURE7, to distinguish first between private and non-private households.
