Seven Types Of Residential Households

  1. 1. Seven Types of Residential Households in Developed Countries<br />By Terry Prince, CPO-CD®<br />www.terryprince.com<br />
  2. 2. What are Residential Households?<br />For the purpose of this presentation – Residential households are defined as domiciles in developed countries. <br /> See next slide for definition<br />
  3. 3. Developed Countries – A definition<br />Developed countries are defined as countries with industrialization and high levels of human development as currently defined by HDI (Human Development Index) and the organization for economic co-operation (OECD).<br />Exact statistical delineation is left to the user.<br />
  4. 4. Seven Types of Households<br />Single Member Household<br />21st Century Household<br />Extended or Joint Household<br />Shared Household<br />In-Home Caretaker Household<br />Provider Managed Household<br />Collective Living Household<br />Terry Prince © 2010<br />
  5. 5. 1) Single Member Household<br />One person resides in this household.<br />
  6. 6. 2) 21st Century Household <br />Nuclear, blended, single-parent (head/householder) and domestic partnership households. <br />Marriage, domestic partnership, and familial ties relate the family members. This type of household includes a main head of household or couple and their assorted family members and/or partners. <br />
  7. 7. Continued…21st Century Household<br />This household can also be a convenient living arrangement of no more than one elder or younger relative, sibling or parent. <br />
  8. 8. 3) Extended or Joint Household<br />The extended, complex or joint family is where multiple families (usually somehow related or employed in some capacity) with one or several “heads” of household’s reside. <br />This can be a large estate, ranch or farm property that is frequently inherited. It can also be the home of a C-level executive or celebrity with staff living onsite. <br />
  9. 9. Continued…Extended or Joint Household<br />The property can also be acquired through pooling of funds to make rental or mortgage payments. Floors or wings can separate the residences. <br />This household can include polyamorists or Hindu United Family (HUF’s)where space is often allocated into communal and separate. <br />
  10. 10. 4) Shared Household<br />A shared household is where platonic roommates or housemates share a home or apartment. <br />These household members make a definitive choice to reside together in shared living space, usually with separate sleeping space.  <br />
  11. 11. 5) In-Home Caretaker Household<br />This is the situation when an elderly or person with physical disabilities has a caretaker or relative residing in their home or apartment for daily or occasional assistance. <br />The elderly or physically challenged individual usually has more rights of ownership than the caretaker. In some cases, the caretaker may have legal short term rights such as medical power of attorney for the client. <br />
  12. 12. 6) Provider Managed Household<br />An individual or corporation can run these households. On the simplistic side, they can be a “landlord” who lets out a room and provides 1 – 3 meals a day. This may be the case in a boarding home. <br />Most provider managed homes today are board and care, homeless shelters, independent living facilities for adults with disabilities, assisted living, group home (adult or child focused facility), long-term convalescent or nursing homes. <br />
  13. 13. Continued…Provider Managed Household<br />The provider-managed homes provide a wide range of specialized services (assistance with activities of daily living, food service, cleaning of dwelling, medical or mental health supervision) on a fee or contracted basis for the client.<br /> The individuals in these households are often required to abide by the rules of the provider. <br />
  14. 14. 7) Collective Living Household<br />This type of household involves a collective or group living such as a dormitory-based community (commune, religious order, educational institution). <br />This type of residence can include senior independent living facilities, cohousing and even single room occupancy (SRO) apartment dwelling and hotels offering long term residence stays (when dining and possession storage privileges are part of the equation) are included in this group. <br />
  15. 15. Continued…Collective Living Households<br />Individuals choosing to live in this type of household structure are generally able to function relatively well on their own. <br />These types of living arrangements are likely to have strict defined rules and expectations of those that dwell within the “walls” of the community. <br />
  16. 16. Using the Seven Types of Households in Your Field or Profession<br />General statistical comparisons<br />Helpful research parameters for the study of residential and domestic life<br />
  17. 17. Using the Seven Types of Households in Your Field and Profession<br />Comparison may be made within cross-field and interdisciplinary study on this framework<br />Clarity of legal components and complexities of household dwellers<br />
