Number of bedrooms and rooms in private dwellings

Percentage of four-bedroom dwellings continues to increase

The percentage of occupied private dwellings with four bedrooms increased since the last census. In 2013, 23.4 percent had four bedrooms, up from 21.6 percent in 2006, and 20.4 percent in 2001. This was not related to an increase in average household size, which remained at 2.7 people per household.

As in previous censuses, the most common number of bedrooms was three. In 2013, 44.5 percent of occupied private dwellings had three bedrooms, down from 46.3 percent in 2006.

There was a slight decline in the percentage of private dwellings with two bedrooms, at 19.1 percent in 2013, compared with 19.8 percent in 2006.

One-bedroom private dwellings remained relatively rare, at 5.7 percent in 2013.
