Limitation of the Data
Beginning in 2006, the population in group quarters (GQ) is included in the ACS. Some types of GQ populations have age distributions that are very different from the household population. The inclusion of the GQ population could therefore have a noticeable impact on the age distribution. This is particularly true for areas with a substantial GQ population.

The data on relationship to householder were derived from answers to Question 3, which was asked of all people in housing units. One person in each household is designated as the householder. In most cases, this is the person, or one of the people, in whose name the home is owned, being bought, or rented and who is listed on line one of the survey questionnaire. If there is no such person in the household, any adult household member 15 years old and over could be designated as the householder. Households are classified by type according to the sex of the householder and the presence of relatives. Two types of householders are distinguished: a family householder and a non-family householder. A family householder is a householder living with one or more individuals related to him or her by birth, marriage, or adoption. The householder and all people in the household related to him or her are family members. A non-family householder is a householder living alone or with non-relatives only.
|ACS 2006-1yr Summary File: Technical Documentation -> Appendix B. Subject Definitions -> Housing Variables -> Meals Included in Rent|
The data on meals included in the rent were obtained from Housing Question 18b in the 2006 American Community Survey. The question was asked of occupied housing units that were rented and vacant housing units that were for rent at the time of enumeration.
Since 1996, the American Community Survey questions have been the same. Starting in 2004, 'meals included in rent' is shown for all renter-occupied housing units. In previous years (1996-2003), it was shown only for specified renter-occupied housing units.
