Families listed twice on the 1870 census

Hello, everyone! I have a dilemma: one of my ancestors and his entire family (wife and children) seem to be listed twice on the 1870 census. Same township - actually, the two entries are just a page or so apart - and basically the same birth years (some may be a year or two off). Besides the slightly different birth years, the only difference between the two entries is that there are two or three "extra" children on one record.
I know that it is possible for individuals to appear twice on one census, but what are the chances of a duplicate family??
