Name of person responsible for filling out questionnaire: ________

On 1 January 1971 a census of population, occupation, dwellings and buildings will be conducted in the German Democratic Republic [GDR] (according to the law of 1 December, 1967)

The Census of dwellings is conducted to obtain precise information about dwelling conditions of the population and the stock of dwellings in the GDR. The results serve as scientific base for forecasting and planning and for taking measures to improve the living conditions of the population in terms of new buildings and maintaining existing buildings. Thus conducting the census is in the interest of every citizen.

The census takes place with the cooperation of all levels of society from which many have volunteered as honorary [unpaid] enumerators. All persons involved with the census are obliged to treat all information obtained through the census as confidential. The answers will only be used for statistical purposes (paragraph 4 of the [census] law).

For which dwellings and by whom is a dwelling questionnaire to be completed?

Only one dwelling questionnaire is to be completed for every dwelling, even if several households live in the dwelling. Where there is only one household in a dwelling, the person who provides the major portion of the livelihood of the family is responsible for filling out the questionnaire. In cases where several households occupy one dwelling, then each household enters its respective information.

For a dwelling which is not used for residential purposes (e.g. doctor's office, work shop, boarding house), the user of the dwelling has to complete a dwelling questionnaire as well. For vacant dwellings the information should be entered into dwelling questionnaires by the owner of the building, by a member of the housing administration or housing steward in cooperation with the honorary enumerator.

Persons responsible for filling out the questionnaire are obliged by the census law of 1 December, 1967 to answer all questions in the dwelling questionnaire truthfully, completely and in due time.

Should there be questions when filling out the dwelling questionnaire please contact your enumerator.

Please have the dwelling questionnaire ready for pick up on 2 January, 1971.

Section A: Facilities in dwelling

A central heating/floor heating includes forced air heating when the rooms are heated by a central air heater via a duct system.

Section B: Information about auxiliary rooms inside the dwelling

Please enter the information for each auxiliary room. Should there be other rooms than pre-printed (e.g. central hall), use the free rows. After having entered all floor space calculations, add up the floor spaces and enter the result at the bottom.
Not included are: balcony and loggia; auxiliary rooms outside the dwelling (e.g. basement and attic)

Section C: Information on kitchens

The floor space of a kitchen which is used by several households is to be entered only once.
Should there be more than one kitchen/kitchenette in the dwelling, then each should be listed in a separate row.
A kitchen used also for eating or sleeping is to be treated as a kitchen (section C), not as a room (section D). On the other hand a room with a temporary cooking facility should be treated as a room and not as a kitchen.
A kitchenette is a separate room accessible from another room or hallway or part of a room but structurally separated.
A temporary cooking facility is not a kitchenette.

Section D: Information about rooms in the dwelling

Rooms are those which are used for living. They have the following characteristics:
a) They are enclosed from floor to ceiling by walls.
b) They get direct day light through windows.

Rooms are also those which have been converted from shops if they meet the above criteria. Rooms are living rooms, dining rooms, bed rooms, study rooms, children rooms.
Vacant rooms (because they are damaged or are not rented out) must be listed as well, and indicated as vacant.
Those rooms should be listed and marked as such which are used for non-residential purposes (e.g., tailor shop, atelier, doctor's office, commercial renting).
Each household lists only the rooms used by it and those vacant if they belong to the household and enters for each room the name of the household in the appropriate field.

Example:
A dwelling has three rooms. It is being lived in by the householder and a subtenant. The householder uses two rooms.

Instructions for filling out the building list

For which buildings should a building list be filled out?

1. A building list should be filled out for all residential buildings, independent of if they are occupied, vacant or misused on census day. Considered residential buildings are all single family houses, duplexes and apartment buildings that could be built as detached houses, semi-detached houses or town houses. If it involves semi-detached houses, town houses or apartment buildings, every section of these building complexes that contains apartments lying on one staircase and is separated from other staircases by a wall reaching from the basement to the roof, are considered separate buildings in the sense of the census. In these cases, a building list is filled out for every rise way up such as elevator or staircase. For a new apartment building with several rises, a building list is also filled out for every rise. Side houses or wings and rear houses that have their own entrance are counted as independent buildings.

The following buildings are only recorded on one building list:
a) Apartment towers with center elevator tower surrounded by outer apartment units, even if they have several rises
b) Inner or outer maisonettes whose apartments are accessible via an internal or external entrance

2. A building list should only be filled out for non-residential buildings (e.g. school buildings, institutional buildings, administrative buildings) if at least one apartment inhabited by a household is located inside.

3. A building list is only filled out for temporary accommodations [emergency] if they are a permanent, regular residence of one or several households, not only inhabited occasionally (e.g. on the weekends or during vacations).

Who should fill out a building list?

The completion for all buildings designated as supervised is undertaken by the honorary enumerator. As a rule, this is based on:
The assistance of the administrator, custodian, a member of the community management or house representative, for buildings that are national property or property of social organizations;

The assistance of the rise manager, a member of the community management or house representative, for buildings that are cooperative property (Workers' housing cooperative, Cooperative building association, Agricultural production cooperative, other social cooperatives);

The assistance of the owner, renter, administrator or a member of the community management for buildings that are private property;

The assistance of a person residing in the building that can give information, for buildings of other ownership types or in the cases in which the category of persons named as supervisors do not live in the corresponding building.

Explanations for questions on the building list

Section C: Physical condition level of the building

The applicable physical condition levels for every building are carried over from the check sheet by the organization office. They are adopted in this section of the building list, where the corresponding circles are marked.

They mean:
Condition level 1: Building in good condition. No repairs are expected in the near future (e.g. new buildings, well maintained buildings, restored buildings).

Condition level 2: Building has damages. There are functional defects on the building that should be repaired in order to prevent them developing into larger damages (e.g. damages on roofs, gutters, fireplaces, windows, doors, stoves, on the exterior plaster, on the heater, on the sanitary facilities).

Condition level 3: Building has considerable defects that compromise its continued existence or usability. A restoration of the building is necessary. If there is further deterioration, closing off of the inhabited areas is unavoidable (e.g. deep cracks in the masonry, considerable dry rot infestation, damp basement masonry, unusable installations).

Condition level 4: The building is closed off by the state building inspectors, or closing off is imminent based on the bad condition.

If the condition level provided by the organization office is missing or the provided condition level apparently no longer corresponds to the observed construction condition of the building, then a clarification is required. (Please note the corresponding directions in the "handbook for the enumerator")

Section D: Year of construction of the building

For renovations, additions or extensions, the original year of construction is used; for reconstruction after total loss, the year of the reconstruction is considered the year of construction. If the exact year of construction cannot be determined for residential buildings built before 1800, we ask that the year of construction be estimated based on local available indicators such as age of surrounding buildings, city district, municipality/city.

Section E: Number of floors of the building

Included here are the ground floor and the above-lying floors, excluding the attic. However, if the attic is fully developed for living purposes, then it is included.

For filling out all remaining sections of the building list, you find corresponding directions in the "handbook for the enumerator".

Explanations for questions in the household list

Question 5c: Number of children born in the existing marriage

All children born in the existing marriage should be stated, even if the no longer live in the household or are already deceased.

Question 7: Address of the main residence, address of the secondary address

Question 7 should be answered for all persons belonging to the household.

At the same time, the home address for the permanent residence is entered in question 7a "address of the main residence." If the person only has one residence, then this residence is considered the permanent residence (main residence) and its address is stated in question 7a. Question 7b remains unanswered.

If a person has two residences for professional, job training, or education reasons, then for this person the address of the main residence (permanent residence) should be indicated in question 7a, and the address of the secondary residence should be indicated in question 7b. As a rule, the residence where the family, to whose household the person belongs and from which the person is temporarily separated because of their activity in another location, lives is considered the main residence.

If the person does not have an additional residence, then the institution is considered the permanent residence (main residence) and its address is stated in question 7a. Question 7b remains unanswered.

Persons that have an East Germany identification card, extract the address of the main residence from the last entry made on pages 6 through 8, the address of the secondary residence from the last entry made on pages 9 through 12.

Question 8: Occupational data

Question 8 should also be filled out by seasonal employees who are employed on census day. At present job seekers answer only questions 8b and 8c based on their last job.

Question 8a: Name and address of the place of work

Employees in firm sections, branch offices, facilities of a firm as well as in firms, firm sections, production facilities and facilities of a combine, state in question 8a the name and address of the company section, branch office, facility of the firm or the firm, firm section, production facility or facility of the combine.

Employees of construction firms state the name and address of the construction firm for which they are employed at a construction site in this question.

Employees that are temporarily employed in another firm through deputations, delegations and the like, state the full address of the place of work that carried out the deputation or delegation.

Home workers state the address of the place of work for which they work.

Members of production cooperatives that are temporarily employed (for example, in a sugar refinery or in road work) at the time of the census indicate only the address of the production cooperative as the place of work.

Family workers that work in the personal home economy of a production cooperative member but are not members of a production cooperative themselves, enter "Personal home economy" in question 8a.

Question 8c: Are you employed as:

Only members and candidates of production cooperatives (agricultural production cooperative, production cooperative for handicrafts, horticultural production cooperative, production cooperative for working fishermen, fishery production cooperative) as well as councils of lawyers should be entered as cooperative members. Only persons that work in the firm of a family member without a legal working relationship and do not get taxable and social security-taxable income from a firm should be entered as "family worker". Also counted here are family members working exclusively in the personal home economy of an agricultural production cooperative member. Family members whose legal working relationship in the firm of a relative is recognized from the time sheet and income tax and social security contributions are entered as "worker/employee".

Question 9f, 9g:

Under field, the derived job title should not be stated, so not engineer, but rather air traffic engineer; not technician rather metallurgical technician, for example.

In the field information of graduates of pedagogical fields, it must be identifiable that it involves teacher/pedagogical studies, so not mathematics rather secondary school teacher of mathematics; mathematics teacher.

Explanations for questions on the individual form

Question 7: Address of the main residence, address of the secondary address

Every person who has a residence (main or secondary residence) registered with the police in the institution, receives an individual form to fill out.

At the same time, the home address for the permanent residence is entered in question 7a "address of the main residence".

If the person lives in the institution for professional, job training or education reasons then, as a rule, the address of the institution is considered a secondary residence and should be entered under question 7b. The address of the main residence - as a rule, the residence of the family to whose household the person belongs - should be stated under question 7a.

If the person does not have an additional residence, then the institution is considered the permanent residence (main residence) and its address is stated in question 7a. Question 7b remains unanswered.

Persons who have an East Germany identification card [should] extract the address of the main residence from the last entry made on pages 6 through 8, [and] the address of the secondary residence from the last entry made on pages 9 through 12.

Question 8: Occupational data

Question 8 should be also be filled out by seasonal employees who are employed on census day. At present job seekers answer only questions 8b and 8c based on their last job.

Question 8a: Name and address of the place of work

Employees in firm sections, branch offices, facilities of a firm as well as in firms, firm sections, production facilities and facilities of a combine, state in question 8a the name and address of the company section, branch office, facility of the firm or the firm, firm section, production facility or facility of the combine.

Employees of construction firms state the name and address of the construction firm for which they are employed at a construction site in this question.

Persons employed in a sales outlet enter the exact designation of the sales outlet next to the address.

Example:
Cooperative sales outlet manufactured goods
Pritzerbe, Puschkinstrasse 12

Employees that are temporarily employed in another firm through deputations, delegations and the like, state the full address of the place of work that carried out the deputation or delegation.

Home workers state the address of the place of work for which they work.

Question 9f, 9g

In [this] field, the derived job title should not be stated. So, [do not enter] "engineer", but rather "air traffic engineer"; not "technician", but rather "metallurgical technician", for example.

In the field for information on graduates from the pedagogical fields, [the information entered] must be identifiable as involving teacher/pedagogical studies. So, [do not enter] "mathematics", but rather "secondary school teacher of mathematics"; "mathematics teacher".

This also applies to specialists with completed technical college and university education who completed pedagogical post-graduate studies. So [do not enter] "electrical engineering", but rather "vocational school teacher of electrical engineering"; "teacher for career-oriented education in electrical engineering".

Do not consider finished technical college or university studies such as: post-graduate studies; guest studies; examination for the master's certificate even if it was passed at a vocational college; completion of a vocational school.

Question 9h:

For the question "Which other levels of education have you completed?", the following should be stated. For example: "habilitation" (qualification for a teaching career in higher education), "doctorate", "post-graduate studies", "guest studies".

After you have undertaken filling out the back side, please check again if all questions were answered completely and correctly.
