If you are unable or do not know how to complete the questionnaire, wait for the arrival of the enumerator responsible for collecting the questionnaires who will provide you with the assistance you require.

The home telephone or cell phone number should be provided so that we can contact you if required.

Tick Yes if you have electrical power installed in your dwelling, whatever the source.

Question 6 - Water supply system:

When the kitchen and/or bathroom are located in a building separate from the dwelling (in the yard, etc.), which has piped water, the dwelling is considered as having inside water.

When the dwelling has piped running water outside (yard, etc.) but not in any of the rooms comprising it (kitchen, water closet or bathroom), it will be considered as having running water in the building, but outside the dwelling.
When there is no piped water in the dwelling or in the building and the household resorts to other supply sources, various alternative sources may be used. In this case, the source which is most frequently used to obtain water for cooking and hygiene should be considered.

Question 7 - Toilet facilities:

By flush toilet, we mean the flushing mechanism, flow meter, etc., in other words, the mechanical system for discharging water inside the lavatory cistern.

Question 8 - Bathing facilities:

Bath or shower means any installation permanently connected to a water supply system and to a drainage system enabling the evacuation of used bath water to the exterior of the dwelling.

Do not consider the mere existence of a washbasin as constituting a bath or shower (whether connected to a drainage system or not), even when located in a room separate from the dwelling, or a makeshift installation in suspended recipients, which, filled manually, are used as a shower

Question 9 - Sewage disposal system:

Sewage disposal system means the entire permanent installation permitting the evacuation of wastewater from the dwelling to the exterior.

Public sewage system means the drainage system (for example in a city), which collects all the waste and channels it along a specific path. Septic tank is a specially structured receptacle enabling certain processes of disinfection, which, by means of a suitable pipeline, receives wastewater from one or a small number of dwellings.

Question 10 - Type of heating:

If there is more than one heating system, indicate the one used most frequently whenever it becomes necessary.

Question 11 - Availability of kitchen:

Kitchen means the place designed and equipped for making meals, and which is in fact used for this purpose, even if it is also used as a dining room, bedroom or living room. The kitchen may be separated from the dwelling (in the yard for example).

Kitchenette means a small space within a room, separated usually by a small counter or similar, designed for preparing food. This situation is found mainly in urban zones and in smaller flats.

In dwellings with a kitchen, it is necessary to consider the size of the kitchen since it is classified according to whether it has an area of more than 4 m2 or less than 4 m2.

Room means the space in a dwelling, limited by walls, which, for the most part, has an area of at least 4 m2 and a ceiling height of 2 m. Included in the definition of room are bedrooms, dining room and living room, habitable attic and basement rooms, etc.

You should Not consider the following as rooms: kitchen (even if used for other purposes), bathroom, pantry, storage room, balcony (even if enclosed by any type of structure), conservatory, hall and corridors. Rooms that are used exclusively for an economic activity should not be counted. For example: in a dwelling consisting of five rooms in which a doctor's surgery occupies two rooms, only three rooms should be counted.

Question 13 - Do you have mortgage or loan resulting from the purchase of this dwelling ?

The owner-occupier of the dwelling pays financial charges resulting from the purchase of the dwelling, when:
The dwelling is built for purchase and is acquired through a welfare fund or other institution, a situation whereby individuals have the right to occupy the dwelling by virtue of a sum paid over a certain period of time, usually fifteen to twenty years, at the end of which they become the owners of the dwelling;

The dwelling is the property of people who occupy it and purchased it through a bank loan or other financial arrangements not completely paid; here the individual immediately becomes the owner of the dwelling, although the dwelling is generally mortgaged as collateral for the loan, with the financial charges consisting of the payment of principal and interest due. Thus, the monthly payment will include the repayment of principal and interest due.
Any other type of housing charges, such as charges on home improvement loans should Not be considered.

Tick "No" if the dwelling is free from encumbrance or charges, regardless of how the owner acquired it (purchase, inheritance or other).

This charge must refer to the month immediately preceding the census moment.

Question 14 - Please indicate the size to which corresponds the monthly mortgage or loan charge:

If the payment is, for example, quarterly, you should tick the box representing one third of that amount.

This question is only for occupants who are not owners or co-owners of the respective dwellings.

3- or 5-year fixed-term contract - a contract in which at the end of the term (3 or 5 years), the amount of the rent may be renegotiated by the parties. If the parties fail to come to an agreement, the contract lapses and the tenant is required to leave the dwelling.

Council or subsidized rent contract - a contract in which the tenant is a public body and in which the amount of the rent was reduced in view of the need for social aid by the household.

If the dwelling is let to an individual who, in turn, lets it to a third person through payment of a rent, the dwelling is said to be sublet.

Cases involving the voluntary conveyance of the dwelling, (for example: a father owns a dwelling and transfers it free of charge to his son), as well as cases in which the occupancy of the dwelling is usually associated with a contract in which consideration is either directly or indirectly assigned to it, subject to the performance of a task (for example: doormen, watchmen, etc.), should be included under other situations.

Question 16 - period of the lease contract:

In this question, what we want to know is when the lease contract was concluded, independently of whether the rent was subsequently adjusted.

Question 17 - if you pay rent, please indicate the size to which corresponds the monthly amount:

Rent means the amount spent monthly for the occupation of a housing unit on lease.

If the rent is not paid on a monthly basis, you will have to convert it to the corresponding monthly amount.
