[Pp. 3-6, Introduction, Presentation, and Index were omitted.]
[Most of the methodology section is omitted]
The census will have two enumerator types to secure that all persons are enumerated: home enumerators and collective institution enumerators.
We will first analyze the household operation:
To live, most people form groups in households. And the household is the person or group of persons, related or not, who live under that same roof and share food expenses.
Therefore, the persons alone or the groups of persons, joined by family ties or not, who live under that same roof and share food expenses, make up households.
And where are these households residing?
Which dwellings should be enumerated?
--Only enumerate rental apartments, hotel or boarding rooms, mobile homes and any places that were not originally built for persons to live in them, such as factories, sheds, commercial spaces, public buildings, barns, etc., if one or more households spent the night in them from Friday the 26th to Saturday the 27th of October.
At the same time, there are households made up of one or more persons who do not have roofs. They live in the street, plazas, doorways, stations, etc. These households should be enumerated.
We will analyze the process for collective institutions:
Although the majority of the population lives in households, there are persons who for various reasons, on the night in reference for the Census, were in collective institutions such as hospitals, military installations -- barracks, bases, ships --, schools or universities as boarding students, convents and religious institutions, prisons, jails, or correctional institutions, geriatric centers, workers housing, boats, children's homes, etc.
These persons will be enumerated by enumerators of collective institutions.
[Sections 2 and 3 in p.8 to p.15 are omitted]
Now we will present the census form.
The Census Form is the instrument that we will use to know the characteristics of the persons, the manner in which they organize their living conditions, which means, the manner in which their households are formed and the living conditions.
Below, we will analyze the parts that make up the census form and the manner in which you should complete the form.
Look at the census form to identify each of its parts
Where the information is registered that will allow us to locate each enumerated dwelling. This part of the form is of fundamental importance because it allows up to assign the census information to each portion of the national territory.
The interview was not done because...
You will complete this part if the persons were not in the dwelling on the date of the Census.
Guide for detecting households
Here we indicate the procedure for identifying each household and define the number of forms to complete.
List of persons in the household who spent the night here.
You will register the names of the persons who spent the census reference night in the household and his/her relationship to the male or female head of household.
Households with persons with disabilities
This question will allow us to identify households with at least one person with a disability(ies).
Households with indigenous population
This question will allow us to identify households with persons who identify themselves as descendents of an indigenous group or as members of an indigenous group.
Here you will obtain information about the materials, infrastructure and services of the dwelling, and about the characteristics of the household.
You will ask questions about the basic and socioeconomic demographic characteristics of each person who you listed in the list of persons in the household. Each form has seven population questionnaires.
[p.17 to p.23 are omitted]
In this section we will learn how to complete the questions in the census form.
Follow the reading of the section with the census form available.
[Figure not shown. See original document.]
We will continue to see what the geographic location data is, when and how to complete them.
Boxes for / When to complete / How to complete
Fraction, radius, segment: Transcribing the data that is shown in the segment map at the headquarters before going out to enumerate.
Block: Transcribing the data that is found on the segment map, when you arrive at each dwelling, before you knock on the door.
Street and number, floor, apartment/room: By observation when you arrive at each dwelling, before you knock on the door. If the dwelling does not have a number or it is on a street or road, describe some fixed reference. Any person should be able to find this dwelling based on your reference. For example, a bridge, the train rails, etc.
Form Number: When you arrive at each dwelling and before you knock on the door, you will number the census forms that you use consecutively, according to the route order of your segment, even when you cannot contact the inhabitants of the dwelling on your first visit to the dwelling. You will write 01 on the first form that you use when you start your segment route, 02 on the second, and so on until you complete your route.
[p.25 is omitted]
--You should always number and complete a census form when you encounter a house, apartment, ranch house or shack, even when no one spent the night from October 26th to October 27th in the dwelling, or you do not find the inhabitants.
--You should also ask in each dwelling about the possible existence of other dwellings in the back part of the property or on the terrace.
--In properties with rented rooms, hotels or boarding houses, and mobile homes, you should number and complete a census form only if a person spent the night there.
--You should also find out if a household spent the night in commercial sites, schools, businesses, sheds, factories, etc., following the indicated procedure. In this case, you should number a census form and enumerate the persons who spent the night there.
--In each domicile, you should find out if any persons spent the night from Friday the 26th to Saturday the 27th, 2001. You will identify the number of households in the dwelling and you will complete a census form for each household that you detect.
--In the majority of dwellings, you will find only one household. But in some cases, you could identify two or more households. You will use a census form for each household detected, numbering them sequentially from the last house that you have enumerated.
--If a household has more than 7 members, you should use more than one form to take the census of all of the members of the household. In this case, you should number all of the forms used for this household with the same number.
--You should also complete a form to complete the census for the persons who live on the street, numbering sequentially from the last household enumerated.
[A part of p.26 is omitted]
This part of the form should only be completed when you do not do the interview in the dwelling that is enumerated. This allows us to know the reason the interview was not done.
If you call at a dwelling and no one responds.
You should ask the neighbors if anyone lives there and the time when they can be found there.
If someone lives there:
--If at the end of the census taking you have not managed to find the inhabitants, you will mark the option all of the persons are temporarily absent as the reason that the interview was not done.
If no one lives there and:
Attention: Be sure that in the dwelling there are no households that you should enumerate. A dwelling with a sign that it is for sale or rent, an office, a dwelling under construction or abandoned, can house persons who spent the night there from October 26th to 27th.
You will only mark these options when you have returned to the dwelling as many times as necessary to be completely sure that no persons live there.
[A part of p.27 is omitted]
These instructions will allow you to identify the households in a dwelling.
Remember: For the Census, a household is the set of persons, related or not, who live under the same roof and share the food expenses. A person alone also constitutes and household.
If you arrive at a dwelling and they respond to your call, you will have to detect the number of households that are in the dwelling:
You should ask:
--Do all of them share the food expenses?
You will complete one form for each household detected.
[A part of p.28 is omitted]
To this end, you will ask the number of persons who spent the night in the place where you are taking the Census, their names and their relationship to head of household [male or female].
Write the names down and organize them to facilitate the administration of the population questions in the census form.
The head of household [male or female] is the person recognized as such by the members of the household.
Be aware that if the head of household [male or female] will be enumerated in another place, you should complete the line that corresponds to the head of household [male or female] with the information about another member of the household recognized as such.
[A part of p.29 is omitted]
The census moment is -- 0 hours of the starting day of the Census/ October 27th.
Now we will analyze who should be enumerated in the household:
Enumerate in the household the persons who...
Did not spend the night of Friday, October 26th to Saturday the 27th, 2001, but they are part of the household and they will not be enumerated elsewhere.
For example, because they were doing guard work, traveling for many different reasons, in recreational reunions; because they live alone elsewhere and they did not return to their dwelling, etc.
Were born before the hour of Saturday, the 27th of October, 2001 and are present.
Died after the hour of Saturday, the 27th of October, 2001.
Were born after the hour of Saturday, the 27th of October, 2001, even if they are present.
Died before the hour of Saturday, the 27th of October, 2001.
Let's analyze some examples:
--Rocio, the youngest daughter of the head of household, was born Friday, October 26, but is still in the hospital. Rocio is not enumerated in the household because she will be enumerated in the hospital.
--Saul, cousin of the head of household, came for lunch at the dwelling where you are completing the census and says that surely his wife will answer for him at his house. Saul is not included in the household he is visiting, but in his own.
--Santiago is eight years old and during the week he lives with his mother. He spends the weekends with his father, in the house that you are enumerating, where he was on the reference night for the Census. Santiago gets included in his fathers household.
--Mr. Molina tells you that he, his wife, and his son did not spend the night for Friday the 26th to Saturday the 27th in the dwelling that you are enumerating because this is the weekend house, and that they will return to their dwelling on Sunday night. The Molina family completes the Census in the weekend house because they cannot be enumerated in another place.
Special case: In the case of the domestic service that has spent the night of Friday the 26th to the 27th of October in the place where you are completing the Census, they should be listed in question 1 List of Persons as forming part of the household.
If the answer is affirmative, you should fill the bubble "yes" and then write the corresponding name of the group that the interviewee provides in the space for "which population?"
Take into account that you should not read the names of the indigenous populations to the person answering the Census, but you should wait for the answer that he gives you and then complete the corresponding bubble.
If, in the house, there are persons who are descendent from or belong to more than one indigenous population, do not forget that you should only register one answer. For this you should consider, in the first place, the population to which the greatest number of persons in the household belong or with which the greatest number self--identity. If this is not possible, you should register the name of the population that the persons in the household tell you.
If you do not find the name of the population that the person mentions, you should fill the bubble that corresponds to "other indigenous population."
If you do not understand the name of the indigenous population that the person mentions, you can refer to the table included, where, together with the names that you will find in the list on the form, you will find other ways of naming the indigenous populations (in the cases where it is applicable).

It is considered that there is some person with a disability in the household when this person has a permanent partial or total limitation in his/her ability to carry out an activity in the manner or within the range that is considered normal for his/her age and social level. The disability has its origin in the loss or physical or mental anomaly and this disability is permanent.
You should ask the interviewee each of the questions textually. If the person answering the census answers one of the choices affirmatively, fill the corresponding bubble and do not continue with the following items in the question, continue with the block household. If the interviewee responds no to all of the alternatives for permanent disability, you should mark the last option "there are no handicapped persons in the household."
To formulate this question, take into account that for the Census:
Persons are considered handicapped who...
--deaf persons or persons who need a hearing aid,
--Persons blind in one or both eyes,
--Persons whose arms, hands, or legs are missing or are atrophied (deformed, paralyzed, malformed, etc.),
--Mutes or persons with serious speech problems,
--Persons with mental retardation or problems and/or who have some other permanent disability, for example, midgets, deformities in general, etc.
--Use external technical assistance, such as: hearing aids, walking canes, hand or leg prosthetics, need dialysis, use catheters, oxygen, or others.
--Use internal technical assistance and who have overcome their difficulties. For example, they have pacemaker or even a pin in the knee.
--Have behavioral or communication problems because of bad character and not because of a physical or mental problem.
--Use eye glasses or contact lenses.
--Suffer from terminal illness, for example, cancer.
To conclude, you will turn over the sheet to continue with the block...
[Instruction for interviewers in p.32 is omitted]
Question 4: This household lives in...
Ranch house: is a dwelling build originally to be inhabited by persons, with a direct exit to the exterior (its inhabitants do not pass through common--use halls or corridors). Generally it has adobe walls, a dirt floor, and a thatch or straw roof. It is a characteristic dwelling in rural areas.
Shack: is a dwelling build originally to be inhabited by persons, with a direct exit to the exterior (its inhabitants do not pass through common--use halls or corridors). It is commonly built of low--quality or discarded materials. It is a characteristic dwelling in urban areas.
Apartment: is a dwelling build originally to be inhabited by persons, which forms part of a building with a common entry. This building should contain at least two dwellings which are accessed through common--use halls, stairways, garages or elevators.
Rental rooms: each room inhabited at the Census moment, that is located in a building of rental rooms, is considered a dwelling. A building with rental rooms is a building that has been built or remodeled deliberately to contain several spaces [rooms] that have an exit to one or more common spaces, with the goal of housing the households permanently as renters. Generally the building has a bathroom/bathrooms and/or a kitchen/kitchens that are used as shared spaces. This does not exclude that some of the rooms can have their own bathroom[s] and/or kitchen[s]. They are also characterized by rent payment that is daily, weekly, bi--weekly and/or monthly.
Hotel or boarding house rooms: are dwellings that have characteristics that are similar to the rental rooms, but also have the difference that the hotel or boarding house rooms follow a special regimen characterized by being under legislation established for this type of commerce, which is exhibited in visible places inside the building or in the registry books of the establishment.
Remember that: The rental, hotel, or boarding house rooms that are unoccupied on the reference night of the Census, should not be included in the Census, which means that you should not complete a census form.
In the street: observe that if you complete a census for a household comprised of one or more persons who live in the street, after you register this situation you should continue directly to administer the population questions.
Questions 5, 6, and 8: What is the main material of ... ?
Question 7: Are the exterior walls plastered/ do they have an external covering (include exposed brick)?
Question 9: Does the roof have a false ceiling or an interior covering?
When some/any of the rooms of the dwelling do not have false ceilings, you will register the predominant condition.
Remember: mark only one option for each question.
Question 12: Does the household have a bathroom/latrine?
Question 14: Does the toilet have a button/chain/tank?
If flushing water is done manually with a bucket, bottle, hose or other manual method (independent of whether there is a toilet in the bathroom) you should mark no.
Question 17: Does the household have place for cooking?
Questions 20 and 21:
If the dwelling has only one room in which they also cook, you will complete 01 (one) room or bedroom in both questions.
In question 20, you should only count the rooms or spaces used by the household for sleeping.
In the total number of rooms or spaces, you should count:
--the mezzanines built into some dwellings, even though they do not have some/any of the walls indicated in the definition.
--kitchens used only for cooking,
--laundry areas, garages, sheds, corridors and entryways, unless they are used as a place for a person to sleep,
--Quinchos [a shelter that has a straw or thatched roof, supported only by columns, that does not have walls and is used as an area for eating] that are not enclosed.
Now we will continue with the instructions to complete the answers for
How to complete the population questions.
This part is made up of 7 questionnaires, each one takes up one page: the first is for the head of household [male or female], and the rest are for each of the members of the household. You can enumerate a maximum of seven persons per form.
Remember: You should administer the population questionnaire to each of the persons listed in the list of persons in the household who spent the night here, in the order that they are listed, beginning with the head of household [male or female].
When you finish the census for this household, you should have as many completed population questionnaires as persons listed in the list of persons in the household who spent the night here. Verify this before you end the interview.
We will see, in general terms, the composition of this questionnaire.
Look at the Census Form
The titles in grey capital letters indicate to whom you should administer the questions.
The first title indicates: [Following text is in grey and capital letters] Complete one population questionnaire for each person in the household.
Therefore, the questions 1 through 10 should be asked of each of the members of the household, whatever his/her age and sex.
The next title tells you ...
[Following text is in grey and capital letters] Starting here, persons three years old or more answer the questions.
The next title that follows is...
[Following text is in grey and capital letters] Starting here, the questions are answered by women who are 14 years old or more.
The last title is ...
[Following text is in grey and capital letters] Starting here, women fourteen years old or more will answer.
Questions in the Population questionnaire / To whom should you administer them?
11 to 19 (education) / Persons three years old or more.
20 to 36 (marital and employment situation) / Men and women 14 years old and more.
37 to 40 (fertility) / Only women 14 years old and more.
We will now look in detail at the specific instruction for completing some of the questions of the population questionnaire.
Follow the instructions while looking at the form
[Graphic not shown. See original document.]
This box is used to identify which person is completing the census in each population questionnaire. Here you should write the order number that was assigned to this person in question 1 of the block "list of persons in the household who spent the night here."
Complete one population questionnaire for each person in the household.
To complete the population questionnaires, take into account that:
--Then you will use the rest of the questionnaires to enumerate the other members of the household, registering the blood relationship or other relationship with respect to the head of household [male or female] who is registered first.
Now we will present some clarifications for situations that could come up during the operation.
Question 3: How old are you [is he/she]?
When the person being enumerated is less than one year old, you should complete the bubble that corresponds to "is less than one year old."
[Graphic not shown. See original document.]
When the person answering the Census is between 1 and 99 years old, you should mark the years with two digits. Always complete the units in the right hand column and the tens in the left hand column. In the case of children who are between 1 and years old, complete the tens by filling in the 0.
[Graphic not shown. See original document.]
When the person being listed in the census is one hundred years old or more, write the years in the spaces.
Question 6: Are you [in a health program]?
The "medical emergency system" is the system for medical consultation at home that implies the attention starting with the long--distance request put into place to resolve health problems of patients in states of potential--risk on site or their transfer to the corresponding institutions. This is characterized by the voluntary inclusion of the beneficiary.
The "private or mutual health plan" is a health system characterized by the voluntary enrollment and the payment for service by the beneficiary in its totality. Emergency medical services are excluded.
On the other hand, the "social program" refers to the health coverage that is obtained by persons who work in a relationship of dependency and their family members, through a voluntary affiliation, or the legal coverage that retired or pensioned persons receive.
All health coverage that depends totally or partially on the discounts that by law are made to the workers is considered as affiliation of a social program. Therefore, whenever there is a discount made to the worker for social programs, it is considered that he/she is affiliated with a social program, independently of whether he/she also makes a voluntary payment to pay the social program or if the discount is derived from a private or mutual healthcare plan.
Lets look at some examples:
1. Hugo is an employee of the Ministry of Economy and his social program OSME has an agreement with a private healthcare provider. Hugo requested that his discounts for the social program be derived from this private healthcare plan. In this case, he should mark "Yes" only in the affiliated with a social program and "No" in the rest of the healthcare coverage options.
Associated with a medical emergency service? Yes [ ] No [x]
Associated with a private or mutual healthcare plan? Yes [ ] No [x]
Affiliated with a social program? Yes [x] No [ ]
2. Marcela is self--employed and pays for a private healthcare plan (pre--paid medicine).She should mark "No" for associated with a medical emergency service, "Yes" for associated with a private or mutual healthcare plan and "No" in affiliated with a social program.
Associated with a medical emergency service? Yes [ ] No [x]
Associated with a private or mutual healthcare plan? Yes [x] No [ ]
Affiliated with a social program? Yes [ ] No [x]
3. Doña Inés is retired and has PAMI health coverage. In addition, her daughter contracted "Medical Emergencies". In this case, you should mark "Yes" for associated with a medical emergency service, "No" for associated with a private or mutual healthcare plan and "Yes" in affiliated with a social program.
Associated with a medical emergency service? Yes [x] No [ ]
Associated with a private or mutual healthcare plan? Yes [ ] No [x]
Affiliated with a social program? Yes [x] No [ ]
Observe carefully the sequence indicated by the arrows and the steps that you should follow to continue asking questions.
Question 7: Where do you usually live?
In the boxes "location or place" you should not use the names of the neighborhoods.
Remember that if the person responds "city of Buenos Aires" (or a neighborhood in the city of Buenos Aires), you should write "Federal Capital" both in the boxes for "Province" and the boxes for "Location or Place."
Observe that the manner for completing all of the questions of this block is very similar.
It's very important that you pay attention to the arrows and pathways that are indicated in each page.
The number of years that he/she has been living in Argentina should be counted from the date of the last entry into to country and when those born in a foreign country decided to establish permanent residency in Argentina.
If the period of time is less than one year, you will write "00" in the boxes.
[Examples not shown here. See original document.]
[p.40. to p.42 are omitted]
Starting here, persons three years old or more answer the questions.
Question 11: Does he/she attend any educational establishment?
Excluded is attendance at:
For example: Foreign language, informatics, and computing courses, literacy, musical instrument and theater courses, teacher's continuing education, labor training courses, technical courses and courses for hairdressing, clothing production, mechanics, electricity, etc.
If you get a negative answer you should continue with question 15, which asks about the attendance at an formal educational establishment in the past.
Question 13: What level does he/she attend?
The levels that are involved in this transformation are the following:
Initial level (kindergarten or pre-school) / / Includes the school education from 3 years old to enrollment in EGB (General Basic Education)
General Basic Education (EGB) / 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th / This is the basic level of obligatory education that is required by law. It takes nine years to complete.
Multi-modal / 1st, 2nd, 3rd / This prepares students for higher education. It is completed in three years.
Remember that in this question, you should only mark one option.
Let's see some examples:
--Sebastian is enrolled in 3rd year in a technical high school, where the educational transformation has not been implemented. You will mark: "High school."
--Tomas is 14 years old and is enrolled in 9th year of a municipal school. You will mark "EGB."
Question 18: What was the last grade or year that the person passed?
In the case of persons who are attending the adult elementary school, you should mark the grade or year, and not the cycle. For this you will use the following table:
Adult elementary school or center / 1, 2, 3 / 3, 5, 7
Lower 1st grade / 1st
Upper 1st grade / 2nd
2nd grade / 3rd
4th grade / 5th
5th grade / 6th
6th grade / 7th
--Carlos completed elementary school to 5th grade before 1966. You will write 6th.
--Luisa responds that the last grade that she passed was Upper 1st grade. You will write 2nd.
--Luis attended through the second cycle of elementary in a school for adults. You will write: 5th.
[Exercises in p.46 and a part of p.47 are omitted]
Follow the order of the questions strictly.
Pay attention to the sequence indicated by the arrows and the steps to continue asking the questions.
The questions 20 to 23 refer to the marital status of the persons 14 years old or more.
Question 20: What is your marital status?
Question 21: Do you live with your partner/spouse?
Carefully observe sequence indicated by the arrows and the steps tom continue asking questions.
Question 24: During the past week, did you work, even for a few hours?
--Labor activity that is not remunerated. For example: medical doctors giving concurrent treatments, an ad--honorem adjunct faculty position, judicial emeritus positions, etc.
--Activity carried out to help a family member obtain income. For example: make pastries, bread or sandwiches so that the husband can sell them.
--Volunteer activity with no payment of any type. For example, the activity carried out by solidarity helpers in neighborhood kitchens.
--The activity oriented toward personal or family self--consumption. For example, growing a family vegetable plot for consumption by the family members.
Question 27: During the past four weeks, did you look for work?
[Exercises in p.49 is omitted]
Starting with question 28 and through question 36, the person being enumerated should answer the questions based on his/her main job.
Main job is the one where the person answering the census worked the most hours during the week before the census. If the person answering the census has two jobs in which he/she works the same number of hours, you should opt for the one where he/she obtains the greatest income.
Question 28: The place or establishment where he/she works, what it the activity that they do or the service that they offer?
This question refers to the principal activity of the establishment, and not the tasks that the person answer the Census carries out, nor the activities of the sector/area/address where this person carries out his/her work.
For example: Joaquin works in the accounting section of a factory that makes footwear for athletes. You will register: Manufacture of shoes and sports footwear in general.
What is the product or service -- the product make or the service provided.
What they use and what it is used for -- the primary material used or the destination if he/she refers to a service.
1. Manufacture shoes and handbags / out of leather
what they do and what is the product / with what
2. Teaches private classes / for students of Basic General Education
What he/she does and what is the service / for whom (destination)
3. Transports passengers / in a long--distance passenger bus
What he/she does and what is transported / with what means
Let's look at some specific situations.
--In the case of a self-employed worker or domestic worker, or persons who are not self-employed and carry out their labor activities in environments that do not depend on any establishment (taxis, the household where he/she works, the street), here you should register the activity that the person carries out, since the persons constitutes the place of work.
--Luis is the owner of a taxi with which he works and he does not have employees nor day laborers. You will register: Transports passengers in a taxi that he owns.
Let's see another example:
[Graphic not shown. See original document.]
Question 29: What is the name of his/her occupation?
The answers should be sufficiently detailed; avoid vague definitions of occupations, such as for example: employee, operator, worker, etc.
Question 30: What tasks do you do in this work?
For example: Maria Ester works sewing in a shoe factory: "sews leather shoes with an electric sewing machine". You will register:
[Graphic not shown. See original document.]
[Exercises in p.52 are omitted]
Question 31: In your principal work, are you a ______ ?
Employer: individuals who, being sole owners or partners in a business, hire or employ at least one salaried person, which means that he/she has workers or employees.
Self--employed worker: the difference with an employer is that self--employed workers do not employ or contract persons, nor do they depend on an employer.
Family worker: persons who frequently carry out activities that help in the activity of a family member.
Carefully observe the steps indicated by the arrows and the sub--categories to continue with the questioning.
Question 32: Do you work in [sector of employment]?
An employee of the private sector is one whose employer is a business, association and/or organization comprised of individuals, or by organizations or businesses with mixed property (public and private).
Question 33: In this work, do they discount your pay for retirement?
Question 34: In this work, do you contribute to retirement on your own?
Question 36: How many persons are there in all in the establishment or place where he/she works?
Take into account that here it asks for the number of persons in the entire establishment and not only for the number of persons who work in the section, office, or immediate area of the person answering the Census.
Starting here, women 14 years old or more answer.
Questions 37 to 40 refer to fertility.
You should ask these questions of all women who are 14 years old or more, regardless of whether they are single, living as a couple or not, living with their parents or not, or whether they are very young or if they are elderly women.
Pay attention to the step indicated in question 40, which should only be answered by women who are between 14 and 49 years old.
Do not forget to complete the Census for each of the members of the household in a population questionnaire.
The coversheet allows you to locate the information that you collected during the census route territorially and to know the characteristics of the segment where you carried out your task.
Let's analyze each of the parts of the cover page, when and how to complete them:
Geographic location of the segment
In the case that you do not find persons in the first dwelling or when the first interviewed household does not know all of the required information, you will try to obtain this information through one of the persons who lives in the next dwelling (according to the route order of you segment).
Whenever the categories in the box refer to "300 meters (three blocks)," you should ask for 300 meters or three blocks around, taking into account the center or your segment.
Remember that the information provided should refer to all of the segments. In the case of detecting ambiguous situations, mark the predominant characteristic of the segment.
