    It depends on local law.  In some places it is defined by 2 people per bedroom and a child who is 5 or younger.  Any child older than 5 is considered a person.  In other places it is determined by the total square footage of the property with somewhere around 150-200 s.f. per person (of any age).  Thus a 1800 s.f. house could have up to 12 tenants.

    That depends on where you are.

    depends on local law...and what the landlord will allow (if they are unrelated/not minor children).

    despite ignorant opinion the rule of thumb is not 2 per bedroom....that is only used to determine if a deadbeat family is eligible to demand more room than that really need or to assess if there is discrimination based on familial status in most areas.

    many areas go by over all size of any sleeping area which can include living/room dining room if used as a bedroom....

    I saw 1 area that went by 3 per bedroom as the max occupancy.

    also, the limit for non related people may be lower.  for example, 12 may be legal if a family unit, but limited to 8 if not a family unit.

    if this does not involved minor children, landlord is free to restrict it to less than 8 (ie max 4 people)

    CO laws vary by location.

    Occupancy laws are local & you have failed to provide a location. In the US the general standard is 2 people per bedroom + 1.
