1. POP/Ac and POP/Ha are estimated based on the number of habitable rooms (511 habitable rooms per Ha in the area), assuming each room accomodates one people on average. Habitable room refers to any room in the dwelling unit except for kitchens and bathrooms. However, it is also possible that on average one person occupies more than one habitable room, in that case, the population density would be relatively lower. FAR is estimated based on plot ratio.
