The glossary of statistical terms, published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), defines a conventional dwelling as: ‘…a room or suite of rooms and its accessories in a permanent building or structurally separated part thereof which, by the way it has been built, rebuilt or converted, is intended for habitation by one household and is not, at the time of the census, used wholly for other purposes. It should have a separate access to a street (direct or via a garden or grounds) or to a common space within the building (staircase, passage, gallery and so on). Examples of dwellings are houses, flats, and suites of rooms and so forth.’
