In this census form, you should write the information about the persons who spent the night in the household the previous night. Do not forget to note the children, whatever their age.
Census family. When you arrive at the place where you will take the census (building, apartment, flat) you should first determine the number of families that live there and then register the information for each of the families on the census form.
"Census family" is understood to be the group of persons who share the same home and food, forming a family unit. The "census family" can have the following members: the person considered Head, the wife, the married children with their spouses and children, other relatives, guests, and servants.
Persons who live alone in the household and renters who do not share the food with other groups should be considered as separate family groups comprised of one or more persons.
Non-family groups. The persons who live in a community of non-relatives, such as military, hospitals, institutions, schools, convents, etc., should be considered as non-family groups. When you take the census of these groups, you should write the name of the Head or Director of the group and then the rest of the persons according to their category. It is important to note that within non-relative groups there might be family groups and these should be listed separately; this is the case of the family of the rector of a school, the family of the gardener of a convent, the family of the administrator of a hotel, etc.
"Head of the census family". The head of the census family is the person recognized as such by the family.
The head should be the first person on the list of the persons who form the census family or the non-family groups.
In the following cases, the head could be:
b) The person who lives alone, when this is the only person living in the household, or the renter who does not share food with any group of persons. You should not consider as Head the [female] servant of the family who has one or more of her children living with the family because she and her children are part of the census family.
