Concepts and definitions of households, householder and institutional population

The present issue of the Demographic Yearbook features household and family statistics as the special topic. Although previous issues of the Yearbook (1955, 1962, 1963, 1968, 1971,1973, 1976, 1982) have shown data on households by size and number of family nuclei, this is the first time that this topic receives extensive treatment including a review article on definitions, uses of headship rates and nine tables on the number, size and composition of households and population living in households and institutions.
