Derived from the Census question:
'How many bedrooms are there in this dwelling?'
Number of bedrooms per dwelling
The number of bedrooms in a dwelling provides an indicator of the size of a dwelling. When combined with Dwelling Type, Household Size, Household Type and Family Type, number of bedrooms in a dwelling data can indicate issues around housing affordability, overcrowding and other socio-economic factors.
These tables show the number of individuals in dwellings with each number of bedrooms, rather than the number of households. Household data excludes people temporarily absent from their usual residence on census night.
