Number of Bedrooms in Private Dwelling (BEDD)
This dwelling variable provides a count of the number of bedrooms in each occupied private dwelling, including caravans in caravan parks.
Housing authorities and other users of ABS information use these data:
When calculating occupancy ratios, it is preferable to base them on the number of people usually resident rather than the number of people present in the household on Census night.
A new item is available for the 2016 Census, Housing Suitability (HOSD). This is a housing utilisation measure based upon a comparison of the number of bedrooms in a dwelling with a series of household demographics.
