Families showing up more than once?

How common is it for a family to appear more than once on the same census? Also, what reasons might cause this?

I've come across two families on the 1870 census that I believe are actually the same. The families are listed two pages apart from each other, and eight of nine names are the same with the ages differing by a year.
