NOTE: A family is a group of two people or more residing together (one of whom is the householder) who are related by birth, marriage, or adoption. Unmarried couples with children of their own would be classified as either "Female householder, no husband present" or "Male householder, no wife present" determined by the householder of record. The householder of record is the person living or staying in the household in whose name the house or apartment is owned, being bought, or rented.
