Unit definitions
Dwellings A compound is a set of buildings, enclosed or not by a wall or by any other type of fence or paling. In some case it could be reduced to a single building (single hut, house with one or several apartments, or other cases), including a series of distinct dwelling units. Generally, it is placed under the authority of a compound head [Chef de Concession: C.C.]. A compound may include one or several household.
Households A set of persons, related by blood or not, who live under the same roof and share part or all of their resources to cover their basic needs, in particular lodging and food. These persons are called the household members, take generally their meals together, and recognize the authority of a sole and same person, called the Household Head [Chef de ménage: C.M.]. This concept translates to the words the words “njël” in Wolof, “ngank” in Sereer, “hirande” in Pulaar, and “siitik” in Diola.
Special populations Floating population [Population flottante]: these are the homeless people, who live anywhere, near the market places, in the factories, in shacks or even on the pavement, etc.
