    General Notes: *Median value gives the value for the "average" county for this metric, the 50th percentile of all counties reporting data. **Persons per household is called "Average household size" by the Census Bureau. It is obtained by dividing the number of people in households by the number of households. Average household size is rounded to the nearest hundredth. A household includes all the people who occupy a housing unit. (People not living in households are classified as living in group quarters). A housing unit is a house, an apartment, a mobile home, a group of rooms, or a single room that is occupied (or if vacant, is intended for occupancy) as separate living quarters, i.e., in which the occupants live separately from any other people in the building and which have direct access from the outside of the building or through a common hall.
