The term private household is equated with a dwelling (household-dwelling concept). This means that all persons living in a housing unit (as their main residence) form a private household.

Private households can be shown by size, type and region as well as by demographic characteristics of the household reference person - e.g. age, gender, marital status and foreign background.

The results come from the Microcensus Labour Force Survey (sample survey) and the Register-based Census / Register-based Labour Market Statistics (administrative data) and are collected annually. The publication of the Microcensus Labour Force Survey refers to the previous year, that of the Register-based Census / Register-based Labour Market Statistics to the year before that.
