Not really. She says nothing about the number of citations - you would
a new citation for every time you cite the household entry in the
census - typically that might be for the name and birth of each member
of the household, for each parent/child relationship that is
supported, and for occupation or other fact recorded, and for the
census event itself if you record it.
If what you meant was that she indicates there should be one source
created per household, she doesn't do that either. She says nothing
about how you enter sources in our software. What her examples do
indicate is that the name of the household should be listed first in
the primary citation, but omitted in subsequent citations and the
bibliography entry. And that ED, sheet, dwelling, and household
numbers should appear in the primary and subsequent citations, but not
in the bibliography.
You can achieve this format in TMG by creating one source per
household, but you can also create it by creating one source per roll,
and putting the details in spit CDs.
