Title Household structure
Alternate Title Average Household Size [55]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract Household size is often understood as an indicator of social integration. Although it has shrunk over recent decades, the largest proportion of households still are family households, followed by single person households and new shared occupancy households. High average values usually indicate a considerable number of larger family households, either with several children or several generations under one roof. Factors influencing household size are usually understood to be leisure behaviour, work situation, forms of mobility and social forms of living as well as standard of living. Household size is therefore also seen as an indicator of urban life forms. Another strong impact factor is emigration, particularly of younger people. The trend over the last few decades is for household sizes to shrink and for the number of single households to rise.
