Occupants Per Room
'Occupants per room' is obtained by dividing the number of people in each occupied housing unit by the number of rooms in the unit. The figures show the number of occupied housing units having the specified ratio of people per room. Although the Census Bureau has no official definition of crowded units, many users consider units with more than one occupant per room to be crowded. 'Occupants per room' is rounded to the nearest hundredth.
