Dwelling condition of private dwelling, category
Dwelling condition refers to whether the dwelling is in need of repairs. This does not include desirable remodelling or additions.
In the 2011 National Household Survey, in English, 'Dwelling condition' is referred to as 'Condition of dwelling'.
Private dwelling refers to a separate set of living quarters with a private entrance either from outside the building or from a common hall, lobby, vestibule or stairway inside the building. The entrance to the dwelling must be one that can be used without passing through the living quarters of some other person or group of persons.
