Basic concepts

It is essential that the enumerator become familiar and be able to clearly understand the following concepts.

Census dwelling

A dwelling is the place meant to be inhabited at the time the census, even if it was not originally constructed as a place of abode.

To be considered a dwelling, it must be independent and separate.

Independent: When, in order to arrive at the place of abode, the persons do not have to pass through rooms of another dwelling. It can have access directly from a street or through a common patio, hallway, or stairway.

Separate: When it is surrounded by walls and covered by a roof.

In some cases, other types of provisional structures should be considered dwellings: caves, tents, etc.

If they are inhabited at the time of the census.

[The instructions refer to graphic representations of a tent and of a cave.]

[p. 16]

Census dwellings are classified as either private or collective.

Private dwelling

A private dwelling is one that is meant to be inhabited by one person or a group of persons who live as a family. This dwelling can be a house, an apartment, or a room, etc.

Collective dwelling

A collective dwelling is inhabited by a group of persons who share the dwelling for reasons of health, lodging, discipline, religion, etc.

[p. 17]

Census household

A census household is constituted by one or more persons, related or not, who live in the same dwelling and who share a common food budget.

Each marriage, union, group of persons, or individual person who has an independent food budget is considered to be a census household.

Non-family group

A non-family group is a group of persons who share a dwelling for shelter, health, religion, discipline, etc.

[p. 18]

Each barracks contains approximately 20 dwellings with 2 rooms each (bedroom and living room), without a kitchen, bathroom, or running water in the rooms. A "batey" will sometimes have electric lighting, depending on the proximity of the sugar plantation ["ingenio"] that has constructed it. It has two or three latrines for common use. The kitchen is a stove on the patio, shared by two or three dwellings. As far as a shower facility ["baño"], the only facility is provided by a close-by stream or river. This type of place of abode is generally found in rural areas because it serves sugar companies in housing workers who participate in the harvest."]
