That collectivity composed of one or several people, whether bound by kinship or not, living in the same house or in a portion of the same house, sharing in the provision of service or in the management of the household, who do not separate their income and expenses among themselves. People lacking a kinship bond among themselves, but who live together on a continuous basis for various reasons and make no distinction among themselves in terms of their expenses and earnings, are considered to be households.
