Census '85
Republic of Colombia

XV National Population
and IV of Dwelling
Censuses

Extended Form Enumerator's Manual

[Pages 1 - 23 not translated into English]

[p. 24]

2. Basic concepts

Since this concerns a population and dwelling census, the basic concepts have as their objective defining the clearest way possible what is understood by dwelling in the case of the census, and what is meant by usual residence of a dwelling since in order to count the population, they will be counted in each dwelling where they reside usually.

2.1 Dwelling

For census purposes, a dwelling is a separated space and with independent access, that serves as human lodging.

The space is separated when it has borders constituted by walls, roof and doors.

There are exceptional cases, like shelters, in which the space is bordered by wooden columns, but lack walls and a door. These cases should be considered dwellings and, therefore, enumerated.

The access is independent

a) When one arrives directly at the lodging from a public road.

[Below the text are two diagrams of independent access.]

The most frequent is a family house.
[p. 25]
b) When one arrives at a lodging passing only through areas of common use or of circulation, like patios, halls, corridors, doorways, elevators, stairs, pavilions, parking lots or gardens.

[Below the text are two diagrams]

The most frequent cases are:

An apartment building,

Rooms of a tenant or passenger.
Private dwelling. It is a dwelling of a person or of a group of persons who share the roof and, ordinarily, meals because they form a family and because they have been associated because of sharing a budget.

Collective dwelling. It is a dwelling of a group of persons who share the roof, and ordinarily, meals for reasons of work, discipline, health, religion, punishment, etc.

2.2 Usual resident

A person who ordinarily sleeps in a dwelling is considered a usual resident of the building.

In particular, they are usual residents of a dwelling and should be enumerated in it:

The members of a family, employees and tenants who ordinarily sleep in the dwelling, even if at the moment of the census they have been absent for a short amount of time for reasons of work, business, visits, vacations, health, studies of short duration, etc.
[p. 26]
Babies born before the census moment and the persons died after the census moment. (1)

(1) Census Moment is zero hours of the day that is established as the reference date for the census information. In Census 85 the census moment is zero hours of October 15, 1985.

Persons who, for reasons of work or study, sleep in the dwelling the larger part of the week, although they have their home in another part. For example, a worker or a student who sleep during the week in the city where they work or study and return to their home on weekends.

Persons who, for reasons of work, are frequently absent from the dwelling but do not have any other stable dwelling to sleep in. For example, a traveling salesperson who only sleeps in the dwelling two or three days a week, but the other days sleeps in different sites.

Guests who live more than six months sleeping in the dwelling.

Persons who are accommodated in the dwelling at the census moment and do not have any other place of residence.

They are not usual residents of the dwelling and should not be enumerated in it:

Members of a family who, for reasons of work or study, have another dwelling they sleep in the larger part of the week.

Members of a family who are in military service.

Members of a family who, for reasons of work, study or health are living in another part, although they are in the dwelling at the census moment. For example, a boarding school student, or university student who live in other residences or a sick person permanently shut in in an institution.

Members of a family who are imprisoned.

Persons who have their residence in another part, although they are accommodated temporarily in the dwelling (for less than six months).

Children born after the census moment.

If a child, upon being born, shows any of these signs of life and later dies, it is a live birth, and therefore, should be registered in the form.

Write in the open boxes the last two numbers of the year in which the last child born alive was born, since the first two numbers are already written.
