Chart shows independent domestic units ordered from small to large

Move over the chart to see the names of the units. Use the menu to select whether you want to see independent domestic units or independent domestic buildings, and to highlight the social spread of certain features. Select 'units' to see a chart showing all independent structures with their own access from the street; select 'buildings' to see a chart showing all independent buildings. Many buildings consist of multiple units - e.g. a house, a number of independent tabernae, and rental apartments on upper floors directly accessible from the street.
