“household” assistance?

“household” assistance?

I'm confused about "household information" when it comes to applying for government assistance. The forms all ask about household income/employment info/ss#/etc... is this including roommates that are responsible for their own living expenses, or does household mean just your family/who you support? If it includes roommates, how does this affect your eligibility? I'm worried about it because I have a very low income, however, my roommate has a pretty high income. We split our bills and are each solely responsible for our own share of living expenses. :/ Any experience/insight would be much appreciated.
