Note: The sections on access to motor vehicles, and phones, fax, and Internet combine personal characteristics with the characteristics of the household a person is a part of. They count people. People in the same household can belong to different ethnic groups.

A household is either one person who usually lives alone, or two or more people who usually live together and share facilities (such as for eating, cooking, or a living area; and bathroom and toilet) in a private dwelling.

Households can access more than one type of telecommunication system. Where a household reported access to more than one telecommunication system they have been counted in each category.

This data has been randomly rounded to protect confidentiality. Individual figures may not add up to totals, and values for the same data may vary in text, tables, and graphs. The accuracy of percentages may be affected by this rounding, particularly for ethnic groups with small populations.
