Type of Non-Private Dwelling (NPDD)

This variable identifies the type of non-private dwelling in which people were enumerated on Census Night. Non-private dwellings are establishments which provide a communal type of accommodation. Examples of categories are Hotel, motel; Boarding house, private hotel; Public hospital (not psychiatric); and Childcare institution.

Hotels and  private hotels are categorised differently within Type of Non-Private Dwelling (NPDD). This is mainly because of differences in length of residency, service provision, and how the hotel/private hotel classifies itself.

Type of Non-Private Dwelling also includes the category 'Accommodation for the retired or aged (cared)' which is accommodation where meals are provided. On the other hand, units in 'Accommodation for the retired or aged (self-care)' are classified as private dwellings, and can be identified by the variable Dwelling Location (DLOD). See also Accommodation for the retired or aged (self-care), Dwelling, Dwelling Location (DLOD), Dwelling Structure (STRD), Dwelling Type (DWTD).
