agree  rhandler: Sua resposta é corretíssima, o texto em inglês é que está mal, pois não são os domicílios que devolvem os aparelhos. Domicilios não atuam, só as pessoas o fazem, parodiando Popper.

Habitações singulares/individuais ou colectivas/coletivas


Explanation:
There are two meanings for private households, accordingly to the definition source mentioned in the end.

http://www.unece.org/stats/gender/web/glossary/p.htm
PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD


A private household is either:

Single person household consists of a person living alone in a separate housing unit or who occupies, as a lodger, a separate room (or rooms) of a housing unit but does not join with any of the other occupants of the housing unit to form part of a multi-person household.

Multi -person household consists of a group of two or more persons who combine to occupy the whole or part of a housing unit and to provide themselves with food and possibly other essentials for living. The group may be composed of related persons only or of unrelated persons or of a combination of both. The group may also pool their income.

agree  Jorge Santos
2 mins
  -> obrigada

agree  Henrique Serra: usuários domésticos, em PT-BR
4 mins
  -> obrigada

agree  rhandler: Usuários, claro, "utilizadores" é um galicismo ("utilisateurs"). Mas, se o público alvo for o de Portugal, nada a fazer.
2 hrs
  -> obrigada

disagree  Walkiria De Sousa: nem em Portugual nem em nenhum outro lugar essa colocação estaria correta. Desculpe, mas é que households são unidades habitacionais, ou domicílios, casas em bom português. Car colega, parece que em seu contexto, de fato USUÁRIOS DOMÉSTICOS ficaria melhor
2 hrs
  -> "Households" são casas numa tradução literal... de acordo com o contexto, traduziria assim. De facto, usa-se a expressão "utilizadores domésticos", nomeadamente na área do ambiente :-)

agree  Carla Araújo
4 hrs
  -> Obrigada

agree  João Roque Dias: Como eu disse, noutra resposta, convém ler a frase a traduzir, como fez a colega. Senão, a tradução apenas das palavras (em contextos sociais e culturais diferentes) dá o disparate do costume...
5 hrs
  -> Obrigada

agree  António Ribeiro
