Collection methods:Help on this term

Count bedrooms designed for use as bedrooms and other rooms permanently modified and intended for use as bedrooms (such as a sleep out or built in veranda). Bedsits should be counted as a 1 bedroom dwelling. In the case of boarding house buildings, the unit of counting is the boarding house room which usually has only one bedroom.

Where reporting the number of bedrooms at the tenancy level, the number of bedrooms should be reported for each tenancy rental unit.
