    "the average household size is now seven"?

    Karachi, home to an estimated 24 million people in 2013, is so densely populated that the average household size is now seven, compared with just two in London.

    Where is the world's hottest city?

    Does that mean that those households accommodate seven or they are already consisted of seven?

    I take it to mean that each household consists of seven people on average.
