 Note: Census Enumerators are instructed to list all those who normally reside at the location even if they are lodging elsewhere.  All information related to June 1st of 1900 and it does not matter what happens after that date for census purposes.  Relatives living with the family are listed as part of the household.  The 1900 instructions are similar to the 2010 Census instructions in that you can use neighbors or other sources to fill in the blanks.  Since the data is only as accurate as the knowledge of the person giving it ... a young teen family member or a neighbor, there are blanks and errors in all censuses.  The doggedness of the Enumerator, language barriers and accents all play a role in accuracy and completeness.
