Definition: Mobile housing unit

Population censuses - UNECE

A mobile housing unit is any type of living accommodation which has been made to be transported (such as a tent) or which is a moving unit (such as a ship, yacht, boat, barge or caravan) and which is designed for human habitation and is occupied at the time of the census, that is, it is somebody's usual residence. Nomad camps should be included in this category. Passenger quarters in means of transport such as passenger ships, railroad cars and aircraft should not be considered as other housing units and
the persons who happen to be travelling in them at the time of the census should not be counted as living in these vehicles, ships or aircraft.
