      Is a household just the parent entity in the structure?

      Thus household is built off the same class as contact and company?

      Hi Neil,

      Yes your understanding is correct.

      Below is summary explanation, I have also shared the link to the technical diagram in developer training

      Entity is a base class for Person(Contact), Household and Company

      However, Person.meta is a direct child class.

      HouseHold and Company are child classes of Organization.meta which is also a sub class of Entity

      Entity-> Person

      Entity-> Organization -> Company

      Entity-> Organization -> Household


      Entity-> Organization -> Department


      Functionally, only Person (Contacts) can be in a household and play unique role

      Company and Department are part of hierarchy structure independent of Households

      A contact can belong to both a Company or a Household

      Hope that helps.
