Apartment Unit Occupant Load?

I am looking to see what others use as occupant load factors for individual apartments, based in NFPA, not other Codes? There was confusion that each apartment was like a single family dwelling and therefore had to meet the requirements under 24.1.1.2 (single family no more than 3 outsiders in rented rooms), but there is no tie in to this from Chapter 30. The only real way I can come up with is to use 30.1.7 to view Table 7.3.1.2 to use the 200 sqft/person OL factor? Therefore any unit would have to have 200 sqft per person? Or be restricted to the square footage divided by 200?
