Dwellings by Structural Type

Structural Type of Dwelling

Part A - Plain language definition:

Characteristics that define a dwelling’s structure, for example, the characteristics of a single-detached house, a semi-detached house, a row house, or an apartment or flat in a duplex.

Part B - Detailed definition:

Refers to the structural characteristics and/or dwelling configuration, that is, whether the dwelling is a single-detached house, an apartment in a high-rise building, a row house, a mobile home, etc.

In 2006, improvements to the enumeration process and changes in structural type classification affect the historical comparability of the structural type of dwelling variable. In 2006, apartment or flat in a duplex replaces apartment or flat in a detached duplex and includes duplexes attached to other dwellings or buildings. This is a change from the 2001 Census where duplexes attached to other dwellings or buildings were classified as an apartment in a building that has fewer than five storeys.
