Householder

Definition

One person in each household is designated as the householder for the purposes of the Census. In most cases, the householder is the person, or one of the people, in whose name the home is owned, being bought, or rented. If there is no such person in the household, any adult household member 15 years old and over could be designated as the householder. The Census also records the relationship of each individual in the household to the householder in one of the following categories: head (householder himself/herself), spouse, child, other relative, or non-relative. [Census 2000 Summary File 3 Technical Documentation. Prepared by the U.S. Census Bureau, 2002.]
