Household - Number of Persons Per Room

Table shows the number of persons per room for each household in the 694 data zones within Glasgow, figures based on the 2011 Census data. The number of persons per room is calculated by dividing the number of usual residents in a household by the number of rooms in that household's accommodation.

The definition of a room does not include bathrooms, toilets, halls, landings or rooms that can only be used for storage purposes. All other rooms, for example kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, utility rooms, studies and conservatories are counted. If two rooms have been converted into one, they are counted as one room. Rooms shared between a number of households, for example a shared kitchen, are not counted.
