[p. 4]

I. Generalities about the census

1. What is a population and dwelling census
It is the set of operations destined to compile, process, analyze and publish statistical data related to the population, households, and dwellings in a determined moment.

2. For what is the population and dwelling census done?
The population and dwelling census is done with the goal of obtaining actualized data:

- Of the dwellings
- Of the households and
- Of the persons
- To provide actualized statistical information that contributes to the formulation of politics and programs that tend to satisfy the basic needs of the population, with the goal of improving their living conditions.

3. Legal aspects
The Census is framed by the Law of the National Institute of Statistics (INE-initials in Spanish for the National Institute of Statistics), Legislative Decree Number 86-2000 of July 8, 2000. This article establishes in its article 25 that every natural and judicial person who is found in the country is obligated to provide the statistical data that is requested of him/her and cannot excuse himself/herself from this obligation.

4. Confidentiality of the information
Article 31 of this same Law establishes that the data will be strictly confidential and cannot be published in individual form, but as part of aggregated numbers according to criteria and categories of public interest.

5. Census period
This is the time in which the census is carried out. In the urban area it be five days and in the rural area it will be 8 days.

III. General aspects about the census

1. Who is the enumerator?
The enumerator is the person responsible for requesting and obtaining through a direct interview, the data of the dwellings, the households, and the persons.

In the census structure, the enumerator depends on the sector head, which means that this person is his or her immediate boss.

The enumerator should be honest, responsible, respectful, collaborative, studious, and observant.

For the fulfillment of his or her functions, the enumerator is protected by law, which establishes sufficient guarantees and obligations for the normal development of the census activities.

-Preliminary count of dwellings and persons
-Enumerator's handbook

IV. Census cartography
This is what graphically expresses the order and physical characteristics of the area of each segment.

1. Types of Cartography
The principal types of cartography are:

Census map: This represents extensive areas such as departments and municipalities and the location of cities, towns, and villages. At the same time, it represents the rivers, ditches, mountains, hills, highways, roads, bridges, etc. that exist in the area.

Census plan: This is characterized for giving urban details such as: the street plans, the buildings classified according to their use, and other reference elements that help with the orientation of the area.

Illustration [drawing]: This is the material which represents graphically without scale and with less precision that the plan. It is based on references that give geographic characteristics (natural or cultural). Generally, they are made for small areas where the dwellings are dispersed.

2. Importance of census cartography

2.1 For the enumerator they serve:

a) To locate each of the dwellings within the sector rapidly.
b) To prepare a route for enumerating the dwellings in the most convenient order.
c) To identify the total of the dwellings that are found within the limits of the segment.
d) To keep track of the enumerated dwellings and those that are still pending.
2.2 For the sector leader they serve:
a) To prepare the route for supervision in an efficient manner for each enumerator.
b) To determine the quantity of dwellings that the enumerator can enumerate daily.
c) To detect omission or duplication of dwellings.
d) To determine the necessity for logistic support (vehicles) for moving personnel.

4. Census segment
This is a geographic area that groups approximately seventy dwellings and exclusively delimits for census purposes. The census segment is composed of one or more blocks or one or more villages or hamlet.

[p. 11]

The borders of the segment are marked with red continuous lines, drawn over the natural elements (rivers, roads, forests) and/or cultural elements (highways, streets, avenues, paths) represented on the map or drawing, and easy to recognize. When there are no natural nor cultural references, then discontinuous lines are used to represent the border in an imaginary manner.

The segment is identified on the map or drawing with a number within a red circle.

Example 1: Description of urban segment 007, of the municipality of Santa Lucia in the department Francisco Morazán. This segment has 71 dwellings.

[The drawing 1 is omitted]

In the Northeast, you find block 10 in which 18 dwellings and the building of Hondutel [Honduran Telephone Company] are identified. In the Northeast, you find block 59, in which 19 dwellings, a sports field, a park, a school or kindergarten, a dwelling and commerce, the water tank, and a building with two or more floors in which, there is a building are identified. Identify the other blocks that make up the segment.

[p. 12]

Example 2: Below the cartography that includes the rural segment 008 of the Municipality of Santa Lucía is presented.

2.1 Municipal map of the municipality of Santa Lucia in which the segment 008 with 76 dwellings is identified.

[The map is omitted]

[p. 13]

2.2 Part of the drawing of the Village Zarabanda included in the rural segment 008 of Santa Lucía

[The map is omitted]

[p. 14]

2.3 El Portillo, Los Encinos, and Agua Podrida, included as part of rural segment 008.

[The map is omitted]

[p. 15]

5. Cartographic orientation
When you visit a group of houses or village for the first time, it is necessary that you identify the North. Do it in the following manner:

5.1 Using the sun
a) Locate the place where the sun comes up, which means the East or Orient.
b) Place yourself in front of the place where the sun comes up and indicate the North by raising your left arm to shoulder height.
c) Orient the arrow for North that is drawn on the map or drawing in such a way that it coincides with the North that you found by raising your left arm.

Once the enumerator has located the North, it is necessary that as he or she advances, he or she always maintains the North arrow of the cartography in the identified direction and advance or move only the body without changing the direction of the plan or illustration.

If [the enumerator] has difficulty in identifying the place where the sun comes up, then investigate with the residence of the community of said place and then follow the steps indicated above.

5.2 Using natural references
The North can also be determined as related to the references that exist in the land on which it is situated.

[p. 16]

For example, using the urban segment 007 of the municipality of Santa Lucia, we can utilize the Jose Cecilio del Valle School, which is located on block 61 as a reference. To identify the North, apply the following procedure:

[The map is omitted]

Stand in front of the building of the Jose Cecilio del Valle School, but on the street that leads to the municipal mayor's building.

Direct your view to the municipal mayor's building.

Turn the drawing until the North arrow is pointing toward the bar or dwelling with commerce number 4 of block 61.

If the school is on your right, this means that the North of this place is in front of you.

The steps indicated in this example should be done using one of the segments of the training place.

6. Elaboration of the plan for moving through the segment

[p. 17]

With the sector leader, prepare the plan for the segment route, applying the following procedure:

6.1 In the urban area

a) Revise the cartography of the segment, indicating:
-The segment borders
-The blocks that are included in the segment.
-The reference that exist in the segment.
b) Define in which block you will enumerate the dwellings.
c) Define the order in which the rest of the blocks will be enumerated, for example: First block 10, then block 59, etc.
d) In each block, define the starting point, marking it with a dot in the Northeastern corner.
6.2 In the rural area
a) Revise which groups of houses or villages are included in the segment.
b) Revise if the cartography exists for each of the groups of houses or villages.
c) Revise the segment borders.
d) Define which with group of houses the enumeration will begin.
e) Define the order for enumerating for each of the group of houses, for example: First group of houses A, then the group of houses B, etc.
f) In each group of houses define the starting point or beginning point. He/she can use a bridge, the intersection of the two streets, etc. as reference.

Both for the urban segment as well as the rural segment, [the enumerators] should program the probable quantity of dwellings to enumerate each day and set up the date, the time, and place where they should meet so that the sector leader supervises the work done.

The enumerator and the sector leader should go through the segment route before the day of the census to verify that the plan of the route prepared in the census office works or on the contrary, make the necessary adjustments. [They should] verify the segment borders; detect any omission of dwellings; detect the construction of new dwellings, and verify that the cartography coincides with what is found on the ground.

[p. 18]

7. Examples of the route for the enumeration of the urban segments

a) In all of the cases, the beginning point on the block will be the Northwestern corner.

[The illustration is omitted]

In the illustration, we identify four numbered corners within the circle; corresponding 1 to the Northwest, 2 to the Northeast, 3 to the Southeast, and 4 to the Southwest. Corner 1 was marked as the starting point, which is the Northwestern corner, starting with dwelling 1, we advance in the same direction in which the hands of a clock move, until we finish in dwelling 30, which means enumerating the dwellings that are found to the right of the enumerator.

b) In the interior of a room-house or boarding house or the interior of a block of houses.

[The illustration is omitted]

The route should be done walking in the opposite direction as that followed by the hands of a clock, to enumerate the dwellings that are on the right-hand side of the enumerator.

[p. 19]

c) In buildings wit more than one story

[The illustration is omitted]

The route in buildings that are used for apartments or offices should always begin on the highest floor, and from there go down the floors one-by-one until arriving at the basement.

d) In each floor of a building with an elevator or with steps.

[The illustration is omitted]

The route in each floor of the building should be done in the same form as a room-house or boarding house, leaving the elevator as is shown in the illustration and enumerating the dwellings that are to the right side of the elevator.

8. Control of the census route FORM CVP-01-EC
This is the form or box that serves for noting the occupied and unoccupied dwellings and other establishments along the segment route, and with this, keep control of the interviews that are done each day. Each segment will have one set of route control sheets that is comprised of two sheets, printed on both sides.

The geographic location and the columns 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 16 should be completed before the interview.

The columns 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 should be completed after the interview.

[p. 20]

8.1 Instructions for filling out the control of the census route
Geographic location: Give the description of the segment found in the census folder, obtain the name of the department and municipality in the space left for this purpose. Also write the numbers of the area, zone, segment, and sector.

b. Recommendations for completing column number
2: In the segments of the urban area, write the name of the neighborhood or sub-division and in the segments of the rural area, write the name of the village or group of houses. These data are obtained from the printed illustration in the census folder and in the cartography of the segment.

3: When it corresponds, write the number of the block in which the registered commercial space or enumerated dwelling is found according to the map or drawing.

4: Write the code that identifies the use that is being given to the site; if it is a private dwelling, write number 1, for a collective dwelling write 2, and 3 for the site that is only used as a workshop, business, industry, etc. Whenever you write code 1 or 2, continue completing the next columns.

5: Write the number of the dwelling according to the effected route. This number should be written only for the private and collective dwellings in which you completed at least one form and should coincide with the registry on the census form.

6, 7, and 8: Write the day and month corresponding to the first, second, and third visit made to a dwelling or commercial site.

9: If you verify that the dwelling is unoccupied, write an X and continue with column 15.

10: If when you visit the dwelling, you find persons present and obtain the interview, write an X and continue with the next column.

11, 12, and 13: Write the total of persons, the total of men, and the total of women who reside in the dwelling. If in the dwelling there is more than one household, then you will obtain the total by adding up the total of persons who make up each of the households and continue with the next column.

14: Whenever in the first visit you find the dwelling occupied with persons absent, write X and in column 16 write the probable day and time for enumerating the dwelling. If on the next visit you enumerate the dwelling, then make a circle around the X that you made on the first visit and complete the corresponding data for columns 10 to 13 and in column 15 write an X.

15: Write an X for all of the private or collective dwellings in which you filled out at least one census form, independent of the condition of occupancy (dwelling occupied with persons present, dwelling occupied with persons absent or dwelling unoccupied for rent of sale, for temporary use, under repair, under construction, or other). You should also write an X for those dwellings that having visited them three times or more remain pending because the occupants are absent.

16: This column should be used to write the probable time and day for enumerating the dwellings that are pending because its members were absent the first time that you visited. For example: Return at 5 in the afternoon today.

In each page, add up vertically to obtain the total of unoccupied dwellings, occupied dwellings, total of persons, total of men, total of women.

To obtain the total of dwelling with absent persons, just add up the Xs that remained un-circled in column 14.

To obtain the total of dwellings in the segment, it is only necessary to add up the totals of the columns 9 + 10 + 14 of each page.

9. The enumerator on the census day
a) Presents himself or herself at the place and time indicated by the sector leader.

b) Moves to the block or group of houses that on the route plan was marked as the starting point for beginning the enumeration.

c) Identifies the type of site to be enumerated and registers it in the control of census route (form CPV-01-EC).

d) Carries out the census; which consists of completing the interviews and completing the census form.

e) Before moving on the following dwelling, you should revise the data to verify that the information was completed for all of the persons and that no question is left blank.

f) Paste the sticker on the enumerated dwelling.

g) Mark on the illustration or map each of the dwellings enumerated. For this, you can use a check mark.

h) In the urban area, follow the route for each block walking in the direction in which the hands of a clock move, until you finish at the starting point. This means that you are enumerating all of the dwellings that are on your right while you walk.

i) In the rural segments the route is done group of houses by group of houses, enumerating first the dwellings on one side of the road or street to the end and afterwards enumerating those of the other side, to avoid confusion or the risk of leaving dwellings that are not enumerated.

j) If on the census route you encounter dwellings not represented on the map, locate them in an approximated manner and assign the number that corresponds to the last one registered on the block, the village or group of houses, according to the numeration on the map.

k) If you encounter new housing groups in the segment, add them in dotted form on the segment map and draw the highways, roads, buildings, etc.

l) Check all of the forms completed during the day.

m) In the control of the census route, revise the dwellings that you should visit a second time for the enumeration, since initially they were pending because the members were absent.

n) In the case of any refusal, explain the objectives of the census and its obligatory character according to the law. If the refusal persists, inform the sector leader so that he can be the one to try to obtain the interview.

[p. 26]

V. Enumeration or census interview
In the interview we recognize three phases: presentation, development, and conclusion, the same that the enumerator should complete exactly and that are explained below:

1. Presentation [Introduction]
The introduction begins when the enumerator goes to the dwelling or commercial site and is attended by any of the members to whom the enumerator should:

a) Greet the persons in a friendly manner.

b) Identify himself or herself as an employee of the census (enumerator), showing his or her identification card and credential if necessary.

c) Explain the motive of the visit.

d) Let the informant know that the information received is confidential.

e) Obtain a trustworthy environment in such a manner that you can overcome any fear or disinterest on the part of the informant. The security and natural manner in the treatment, good manners and the care taken at the moment of the interview are determinant elements in obtaining the necessary collaboration.

2. Development of the interview
The interview is the method through which the enumerator obtains from the informant the answer to each of questions presented on the census form, therefore, it is important that the enumerator:

2.1 Identify an adequate informant, which preferably should be:

- The head of household [male or female]
- The companion of the head of household and
- In the absence of the two above mentioned, select a child [male or female] or a relative of the head of household [male or female] who is 15 years old or more and who knows the aspects related to the dwelling and the characteristics of the persons who form the household.

Whenever possible, it is preferable that the data about the characteristics of the persons are provided by each person.

2.2 Know the structure and each of the questions on the census form.
The census form is the instrument that contains the questions to obtain the data about the dwellings, the households, and the persons.

Each form is made up of:

-A first page for the registry of the geographic location and the dwelling data (sections A and B)
[p. 27]
- A second page for registering the data about the household, international migration and mortality (sections C, D, and E)

- A third page that is repeated ten times for registering the data about the person individually (section F)

In the sections there are arrows, steps, or specific indications about what the enumerator should do after marking the answer to the question.

2.3 Apply the general recommendations for asking and the manner of registering the answers

a) Read the questions providing answer options, exactly as they are written in the form and follow the indicated steps.

b) When the interviewee does not understand a question, repeat it slowly and give a brief clarification.

c) The answers that you write with letters and numbers should be legible, so that they can be read later.

d) Never use abbreviations when you write the answers.

e) To mark an answer use an X.

f) Always mark one and only one option for the answer to each question, except in those cases which specifically indicate the contrary.

g) In the case where you make a mistake, correct it by completely erasing what is written without damaging the form and without leaving stains.

h) Differentiate the questions that are asked of men and which are asked of women.

j) If the informant tells you that he or she does not have time to provide the information, the enumerator should propose that the person indicate the time at which he or she can be interviewed.

Review questions

1. Study the content up to page 27.

2. Study the legal aspect on which the census is founded.

3. Answer: How do you identify where the North is in a village? In what does the segment route consist?

4. Following the examples of routes in letters a, b, c, and d, explained on pages 18-19, design a route for each one, changing the position of the forests.

5. What recommendations can you give for asking the questions and registering the answers on the form?

[p. 28]

Instructions for filling out the census form

Section A. Geographic location
This block of data is destined for individualizing each of the dwellings enumerated, for which it is important to complete it before you begin the interview. Never enumerate a dwelling without first completing this section.

Write:

- The name of the department, municipality, and the codes for area, zone, segment, and sector that are obtained from the printed illustration of the segment found in the census folder.

- The name of the village, city or group of houses, neighborhood or sub-division, which is registered according to what the informant responds.

- The number of block is obtained from the map or illustration of the segment.

- If the segment contains dwellings from various groups of houses, be sure to complete the data only of the dwellings that are within a specific group of dwellings, before you move on to the next group of dwellings.

Number of dwelling the census route
Assign the number in correlative order as you go visiting each of the dwellings. For example, if all enumerate the first dwelling you write 001, when you enumerate the second you write 002, and continue until you complete the last dwelling of the segment. This number is exactly equal to what is registered in column 5 of the route control sheet. The number of the dwelling is assigned for the first time in which you visit the dwelling, independent of whether you do the census interview in this or subsequent visits.

Number of household
To each household in the dwelling you will assign a number in an independent form. When there are more one household, then the number is assigned in correlative form, maintaining the number of the dwelling.

Take into account that:

If you identified only one household, then you write 01 in the boxes that correspond to number of household.

In those cases where you identify three households, then you will write 01 in the number of household in the first form; 02 on the second form; 03 on the third form and maintain the same dwelling number.

If the dwelling was found to have absent persons (after 3 visits) or unoccupied, then you will write 00 in the number of household.

If the form corresponds to a collective dwelling, then you should write 00 in the number of household.
[p.29]

Address
Write the exact address of the dwelling, requiring that you write the information about the avenue, street, area, block, number of the house according to the existing nomenclature and all reference that serves to locate it rapidly.

In the rural area the dwellings generally do not have a specific address, it will be important that in the address you write the name of the group of houses and the references that permit localizing the dwelling (in front of the school, etc.).

Section B. Data about the Dwelling
Type of dwelling
Before completing the data of dwelling, it is important to know the definition of dwelling for the purpose of the census and to know how to distinguish the two types of dwelling: private and collective.

Dwelling
This is a place that is structurally separate and independent, built, reformed or habilitated for the purpose of temporary or permanent housing of persons. You can also consider as dwelling any other type of non-mobile or mobile shelter occupied by persons as a place of housing at the date of the census.

Question 1: Type of dwelling
This question is completed by simple observation and to determine the type of dwelling you should consider the three following characteristics:

-That the site is used or is available for use to house persons.

-That the site is separated, that from the point of view of the members that are housed in it, they can isolated themselves from other members, principally for sleeping and eating.

-That the site is independent, understanding independence from the point of view of access to enter the inhabited space, which can be directly from the street, from a patio, corridor, hallway, or from a stairway or elevator, without having to pass through any other habitation site occupied by another household in the site or dwelling.

Mark the corresponding small box, taking into account that the private dwellings can be:
[Each definition is accompanied by an illustration]

Independent house: This is a dwelling which is entered directly from the street, can be surrounded by gardens, land, walls or fences. It generally has its own services of water, energy, and sanitation.
[p. 30]
Apartment: This dwelling forms part of a building that has one or more stories, separated from the rest of the dwellings by dividing walls, with an exit to the street through a shared passageway, corridor, stairway or elevator. An apartment has water service and sanitation services that are for its exclusive use.

Room in a rooming house or tenement: This is the space that forms part of a set of dwellings that generally have a direct entrance from a patio, hallway, or corridor. Generally, the rooms share the water services and sanitation services.

Site not built as a dwelling: These are sites that are located within permanent installations or buildings that were built for other purposes, such as: schools, workshops, factories, etc., but that are being used as dwellings on the day of the census. For this reason, you should ask about the existence of these and enumerate them.

Transitory shelter: These are sites built in transitory manner to shelter households that lost their dwellings for different reasons such as: natural disasters, confrontations, etc. These generally share the water services and sanitation services.

Improvised house: This is the dwelling built of discarded materials, such as pieces of wood, cardboard, cans, metallic sheeting, etc. This dwelling is generally found in the marginal areas of the large cities.

Other: This option should be marked only in those cases in which there is difficulty to register the dwelling in one of the previous categories.

The enumerator should take into account that in the same building it is possible to find: an independent house, one or more apartments, and one or more rooms.

Collective dwelling:
This the one that is occupied by persons who are normally not linked by ties of being relatives and who share the dwelling for reason of: work, medical attention, studies, military service, tourism, etc.

[p. 31]

The collective dwellings with few members should be enumerated by the regular enumerators of each sector. If the enumerator finds collective dwellings with numerous members, he/she should consult about the enumerators specially trained for these cases.

Mark the corresponding box of the group of Collective dwellings, taking into account that:

Collective dwelling can be:

- Hotel, hostel, guest house: These are permanent sites destined for providing shelter and service of rooms for payment.

- Hospital, sanatorium, clinic: This is an institution where ill persons are sheltered and attended.

- Orphanage or asylum: The orphanage is a dwelling designated for the permanent care of children, and the asylum is the dwelling persons of advanced age are sheltered and cared for.

- Barracks, battalion, police post: These are the installations where members of the army and police live permanently.

- Prison, reformatory: These are centers where persons are imprisoned.

-Other: This category is comprised of the collective dwellings that do not fit any of the definitions given above; for example: a student dormitory.

In the collective dwellings, you will only obtain the data that corresponds to section A 'geographic location', question 1. Type of dwelling of section B 'data about the dwelling', and the 'characteristics of the persons' (section F).

Be aware that in a building that functions as a collective dwelling there can be private dwellings with one or more households, which can form a private dwelling. If this occurs, use another form for each of the private dwellings and assign it a number that is different from that of the collective dwelling.

Example: A hotel administer lives there himself with his family, to register the data, you should proceed in the following manner:

- All of the persons enumerated as members of the collective dwelling should be assigned the number of the dwelling on the census form, for example 001, marking the box for 'hotel, hostel, or guest house';

- On the form with the data about the administrator and his family, you should assign number 002, marking the box for 'apartment'. You should fill all of the questions of sections: A 'geographic location, B 'data about the dwelling', C 'data about the household', D 'composition of the household', E 'international migration and mortality', and F 'characteristics of the persons'.

Construction materials of the dwelling

Question 2: What is the predominant material of the exterior walls of the dwelling?
If the construction material of the majority of the exterior walls is visible, mark the answer through observation. If the opposite is the case, ask the question making emphasis that it is the material that is predominant in the construction.

[Illustration is omitted]

[p. 32]

Question 3: What is the predominant material of the roof of the dwelling?
If the construction material of the majority of the roof is visible, mark the answer through observation. If the opposite is the case, ask the question making emphasis that it is the material that is predominant in the construction.

Question 4: Condition of occupancy of the dwelling
By simple observation, mark the box that corresponds to the condition of occupation of the dwelling: occupied or unoccupied, considering that:

Investigate with the neighbors the motive for the absence, complete form CPV-02-EC and put it inside the dwelling. In the space for observations of the control of the census sheet, note the day and time indicated for obtaining information.

If you finish the enumeration of the segment and you have not managed to find any person with the capability of providing the data, after three visits, you will mark "occupied with the persons absent".
Unoccupied dwelling
[Illustrations are omitted]

- For rent or for sale: This is the dwelling that at the moment of the census is found unoccupied and it available for rent or for sale.

- For temporary use: This is the dwelling that is generally used for vacationing, for weekends, or for habitation in times of planting or harvesting.

[Questions 5-12 were asked of private dwellings with persons present]

Question 5: What is the predominant material of the floor of the dwelling?
Read the question and each of the options for answers and mark the box that corresponds to the answer obtained.

[Illustration is omitted]

Basic services of the dwelling

Question 6: Where does the water used in the dwelling come from?
Mark only the box that corresponds to the source of the water used in the dwelling.

- From pipes of the public or private system: This is the water that is provided by SANAA, DIMA, any municipality, patronage, or other public or private businesses that provide water service through pipelines.

- From a well with a pump: When the water is extracted from the interior of a well through the action of a pump, whether manual or with an electric or combustible motor.
[p. 34]
- From a bucket well: When the water comes from a well that has rim around it and a pulley and the water is obtained with a rope tied to a bucket.

Question 7: Do you have pipes installed for water service?
Mark the option that the informant responds, taking the following into account:

- Within the dwelling: There should exist at least one faucet inside the dwelling and it should be functioning.

- Outside the dwelling but inside the property: We are interested in knowing if the faucet is located within the property.

- Has none: You should mark this option for all of those dwellings that do not have pipes installed inside the dwelling nor pipes installed inside the property. For example: They go to get water from the public faucet, the house of a neighbor, the house of a relative, etc.

Question 8: What is the principal type of lighting that is used?
Mark only one box that agrees with the answer that the interviewee gives, taking into account the following criteria:

- Electricity from the public system: This is that provided by some State business as is the case of the National Electrical Energy Company (ENEE- initials in Spanish) or the municipality.

- Electricity from a private system: This is that provided by a private company or a patronage.

[Illustration is omitted]

[p. 35]

- Electricity from their own motor: When the dwelling owns its own motor [generator]. If the owner of the motor sells energy to one or more dwellings, then for the owner you should register the answer in electricity from their own motor, and those to whom he sells are registered in electricity from a private system.

Trash removal

Question 9: Principally, how is trash eliminated?
Read the options in the established order and mark the box for the affirmative response. It is possible that the informant responds that they use more than one form of trash removal, in this case request that he or she indicate the principal form.

Rooms in the dwelling

Question 10: Without counting the bathrooms nor corridors, how many rooms are there in total in the dwelling?
Read the question exactly as it is written. When the informant gives you the number of rooms, before you write them down, be sure that he or she has counted all of the rooms that exist in the dwelling, which means, the bedrooms, kitchen, living rooms, dining room, study rooms, storage room, etc., independently of whether those rooms are used by one or more households. Inclusive, those rooms that are physically separated from the principal structure of the dwelling should be counted.

Room or habitation: This is the space or area situated in a dwelling, closed by non-mobile walls that go from the floor to the ceiling or at least to a height of two meters from the floor and that are used or are apt for human habitation.

You should be careful to register the data, considering that:

- In the independent dwelling, you should register the total of rooms of the structure identified as such.

- In the apartment, you should register the total of rooms of each apartment and not the total of apartments in the building.
[p. 36]
- In the room in a rooming house or tenement, you should register the total number of rooms occupied by the household or households and not the total number of rooms that the building has in all.

- In the transitory shelter, you should register the total number of rooms that the household or the households occupy and not the total number of rooms that the building has as in all.

- In the case presented about the administrator of the hotel, you should only register the rooms that he and his family occupy and not the total number of rooms in the building.

Below we present the illustration of a dwelling in which you can see five rooms.

[Illustration is omitted]

[p. 37]

Households in the dwelling

Question 11: In this dwelling is there some person, group or household that buys and consumes their food separately?
Remember that a household is made up of a person or group of persons with or without ties of relationships who inhabit the same dwelling and who at least for food depend on the same budget (common pot).

In the dwelling, there can exist one or more households and it is important that you identify each of these. Read the question exactly as it is presented and if the informant does not understand, take into account the definition of household that was given previously. Be aware that a person who lives alone constitutes a private household.

Mark the box that corresponds to the answer of the informant, if this is 'yes' continue, in the contrary case, continue with section C.

Question 12: Including your own, how many groups or households are there in all?
Note the quantity of households and remember that in the case of the existence of more than one household, starting with the second household you will use as many forms as necessary, marking the box 'form for another household', which appears on the top section of the census form.

In the following figure, we illustrate the example of the dwelling with two groups or households.

[Illustration is omitted]

[p. 38]

In the dwellings with more than one household, you should proceed in the following manner:

a) For the first household, fill in the census form in all of the sections and the necessary addition forms.

b) For the following households in the same dwelling
- You should use a census form for each of the households of said dwelling.
- Mark the box for 'form for another household'.
- Fill in the data for 'geographic location'.
- Leave the 'data for the dwelling' (section B) blank.
- Fill in the data for the rest of the sections: household data, composition of the household, international migration, mortality, and the characteristics of the persons.

You will use as many census forms as households that share said dwelling.

Review questions and exercises

Section C. Data about the household

Question 1: How many rooms does this household utilize for sleeping?
Note the quantity of rooms or bedrooms that the household uses for sleeping, independent of whether during the day the room is used for other purposes. Remember that this does not mean the rooms that are considered bedrooms; it means the rooms used for sleeping by all of the members of the household.

Question 2: Does this household have a room for cooking?
Mark the box according to the answer that the informant gives, considering that the kitchen is the room designated for preparing foods.

If you mark the box 'yes' continue with the following question, if not, pass to question 4. The room does not necessarily need to be only for cooking; for example, currently the construction of some dwellings includes the kitchen and dining room in the same room.

[p. 39]

If in the dwelling there is more than one household and both use the same room for cooking, each of these households can declare that they have a room for cooking.

Question 3: Is the room for cooking used only by this household?
Mark the box that corresponds to the answer that the informant provides and continue with the following question.

Energy for cooking

Question 4: What is the principal source of energy for cooking?
Mark only one box. If [the informant] says that there are various sources of energy used, ask that he or she indicate the principal, which means the one that the household uses the most.

If he or she tells you that none is used, because this household does not cook, mark the box 'does not cook'.

Sanitary service

Question 5: Does this household have:
A toilet connected to a sewage network?; toilet connected to a septic tank?; toilet that drains into a river, ditch, lagoon, sea, or lake?; a latrine with a simple well?; does not have? Mark only one box.

If there are doubts, remember that:

- Toilet connected to a sewage system: This is when the toilet waste and sewage waters are cleaned water under pressure arriving by pipes or with a bucket of water which discharges to a network of a sewage system.

- Toilet connected to a septic tank: This is when the toilet wastes and sewage water are cleaned with water at pressure, arriving with pressure through pipes or with a bucket of water is discharged to a deposit built for this.

[Illustration is omitted]

[p. 40]

- Toilet that discharges into a river, ditch, lagoon, sea, or lake: This is when the excretions and sewage waters are cleaned by water under pressure that arrives through pipelines or a bucket of water and discharge directly to the river, ditch, lagoon, sea or lake.

- Latrine with a simple well: This consists of a rather deep hole over which a cement or wood toilet is built.

- Does not have: When the household does not have a system for eliminating excretions. If you mark this option, continue with question 7.

Question 6: The sanitary service: Is it for the exclusive use of the household?
Mark the corresponding box for the answer given by the informant.

Remember that the use is exclusive when the members of the household that you are enumerating only use the sanitary service. It is shared when members of another or more households habitually use it.

Comfort and equipment

Question 7: Do you have an automobile for the exclusive use of the household?
Read the question and if the answer of the informant is affirmative 'yes', read the two options and mark the corresponding box for the answer that you receive.

Remember that you are investigating is any member of the household has a vehicle available for personal or family use, without including the vehicles for commercial or work uses.

Question 8: Does this household have any of the following appliances or equipment?
You should read the appliances that appear on the list one-by-one, waiting for the answer and marking each one with the corresponding circle. Remember that in each of the appliances you should only mark one of the boxes in the space, 'yes' or 'no', but never mark both.

For those appliances that are found in poor condition awaiting repair, you should mark the corresponding box for 'yes' the household has it.

[p. 41]

Ownership of the dwelling

Question 9:The dwelling that this household occupies is owned, owned but paying a mortgage, rented, loaned, ceded without payment?
You should complete the question by reading each of the options successively until you obtain an affirmative answer, and then proceed to mark the corresponding answer.

If there are doubts about an answer, take into account the following concepts:

- Owned: When the household has acquired the property of the dwelling and its land through purchase, inheritance, donation, or built by one of the members of the household, etc.

- Owned and paying installments: When the household is acquiring the property and its land and at the date of the census they are found in the process of paying.

- Rented: This is the household that pays a fee or rent for the use of the building.

- Loaned or ceded without payment: This option should be marked when the household that inhabits the dwelling occupies it in exchange for services provided by any of its members, because they are taking care of it or because the owner authorizes the household to live in it without any monthly payment.

Disability

Question 10: In this household, does any person present: Total blindness?; total deafness?; Total muteness?; total loss or disability of any arm or leg?; mental deficiency?
Complete the question by reading each of the options and mark the circle or circles that correspond to the answer obtained. Remember that every notation will be in terms of total disability.

Below we present some cases and the manner of registering the answer:

a) If the person can only see out of one eye, mark the 'no' circle for total blindness.

b) If the person is a deaf-mute, mark both circles 'yes' for total deafness and total muteness.

c) If the person was born without a leg and uses an artificial leg for walking, mark the circle 'yes' for loss or disability of any arm or leg.

Request that the informant give you the name of each of the persons who make up the household.

Composition of the Household

[Illustration is omitted]

[p. 44]

Start by noting the head of household [male or female] and then continue with the order established on the upper part of the square.

In 'other relative' category, you register the cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents and all persons who by blood are family members of the head of household.

In 'other non-relative' category, you register the god-parents, in-laws of relatives, guests, etc.

When you ask this question, make emphasis on the reference period and when you obtain the answer mark the corresponding box.

Question 2: Of these persons who left after Mitch, how many currently live in?
After asking the question, mention each of the countries and ask how many men and women live in the mentioned country. Register the number in the corresponding boxes. Remember that the goal is to register the persons who left after Mitch (two years, five months ago). Central America includes Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

Mortality

Question 3: Include newborns and the elderly. Has any person who belonged this household died between January 1 and December 31, 2000?
Ask the question making emphasis that the period in question covers from January 1 to December 31, 2000. You should include the persons who having their habitual residence in this dwelling died in another place (hospital, health centers, etc.).

Mark the corresponding box. If the answer is 'no', continue with section F.

Question 4: Of those who died between January 1 and December 31 of 2000, tell me: The name, sex, day, and month on which the person died, and age at death.
Write the name of the person who died, mark the box man or woman, note the day and month of death and then the age of the person at the time of death. Only if the person who died was a woman who was between 12 and 49 years old, ask: Did she die during a pregnancy?, which means if she was pregnant when she died. If you mark the box 'yes' continue the interview with section F; if you mark the box 'no' ask if she died during childbirth. If you mark the box 'yes' continue the interview with section F; if you mark the box 'no' ask if she died within two months of the delivery; if you mark the box 'yes' continue the interview with section F. For example, if she died 5 days or 59 days after the delivery, this means that both are included in the period of two months indicated in the question.

Do not include persons who died before January 1, 2000, nor should you include persons who died after December 31, 2000.

[p. 46]

Section F. Characteristics of the persons

On the heading of each page of this section write the names of the persons that make up this household one-by-one, maintaining the order established in 'composition of the household' (question 2, section D).

You will begin with head of household [male or female] as person number 1 and will continue with the rest of the members of the household.

Always ask about the spouse or partner of the head of household; never assume that he or she does not exist. Whenever possible, in the case where both are present, you will ask the questions of each person separately.

For all persons
[Questions 1-6 were asked of all persons]

Question 1: What is your relationship with the head of household?
Mark the box that corresponds to the relationship as relatives that the person has to the head of household. Remember that the first page of section F 'characteristics of the persons' is for the exclusive use for the head of household.

If the person enumerated lives in a collective dwelling, mark the box 'resident in a collective dwelling'. We are not interested in knowing the relationship of relatives that might exist among the persons who are in this type of dwelling.

Only in those cases where, in the collective dwelling, you identify the existence of a private household, the information should be obtained in the same form as indicated for the private dwelling.

Question 2: Sex
Mark the box that identifies the sex of the person. If the person who is being enumerated is not present, do not be guided by the name and ask the question, since it is frequent to find names that are used both for men as for women, for example: Carmen, Jesus, Guadalupe, Concepcion, Santos, Trinidad, María, etc.

Question 3: How many years have you completed?
Read the question making emphasis on years completed, since you should register the age that the person is at the time of the census. Never leave this blank, obtain an answer, since it is very important to have this data.

When the informant declares his or her age, if he or she tells you the date of birth or gives you the identification card and you obtain the age from the difference, write the number of years completed using the three boxes available, for example, 003. When the person is less than one year old, write 000.

Question 4: Where were you born?
You should complement the question by reading the three possible answers:

A) In this municipality? Mention the name of the municipality where you are enumerating?

B) In another municipality in the country?

C) In another country?
[p. 47]

Only one of them should be the response, marking the corresponding box.

If the answer is 'in this municipality', mark the box 'yes' and continue with the next question. If this is not the case, mark the box 'no'.

If the answer is 'in another municipality in the country', write the name of the municipality on the line B.1; the name of the department on the line B.2 and continue with the next question.

If the answer from the person is that he or she was born 'in another country', write the name of the country in which the person was born on the line C.3; write the year of arrival in Honduras in the box that corresponds to space C.4.

It is probable that there are informants that answer some person(s) was or were born in a hospital or in a place that is different from where his or her mother resided at the time. In this case, as place of birth of the person should be registered as the place where the mother resided when the person, about whom the information is being given, was born.

Question 5: To which population do you belong?
Complete the question reading the different population groups that are included in the question. Mark the group or option that the informant manifests belonging to or that the person about whom information is being given belongs to. The option of the box 'other' should be marked when the person responds that he or she does not belong to any of the groups mentioned in the options above this one. For examples, mestizos [mixed ancestry] or ladinos [Spanish/mixed ancestry], etc.

For persons five years old or more
[Questions 6-11 were asked of persons aged 5 years or older]

Question 6: Where did you live in 1996 (five years ago)?
You should complete the question reading the three possible answers:

A) In this group of houses, village, or city?

B) In another place in the country?

C) In another country?

Only one of them should be the response, marking the corresponding box.

The enumerator should take into account that 'in this group of houses, village or city' refers specifically to the place of enumeration, which can be:

In the group of houses called 'X'; the village called 'Z'; or a city called 'Y'.

To avoid confusing the informant, you should mention the name of the group of houses, the village, or the city in which the census is being taken, since this will help the person orient himself or herself and remember with greater ease.

If the answer is 'in this group of houses, village or city': mark the box 'yes' and continue with the next question. If on the contrary, mark the box 'no'.

If five years ago the person resided 'in another place in the country', write the name of the group of houses, village, or city where he or she lived on the line B.1; write the name of the municipality on the line B.2; write the name of the department on the line B.3, and continue with the next question.

[p. 47]

You should mark the box that corresponds to the answer received.

- Only knows how to sign his or her name, mark 'no'.

Question 8: Are you currently studying in any educational center such as a university, private school, public school or kindergarten?

In the 'yes' group, you should include persons who attend schools for special education (deaf persons and mutes, blind persons, etc.) and the persons who study with private professors if the level of study belongs to formal education, in addition to all persons who study through radio programs. For example, the Honduran Educational Institute via Radio "IHER" [initials of this program, in Spanish] has educational programs at elementary and secondary level.

If the answer that you receive is negative, mark the box 'no'.

Question 9: What is the last grade, course, or year that you passed?
Enclose in a circle the number of the highest level of study that he or she studied, then in the numbers located to the right of this level, enclose in a circle the number that corresponds to the last grade, course or year that he or she passed.

For persons who are in first grade of elementary school, the answer that should be noted after asking if he or she complete the level of pre-school, is like this: circle the 3 of pre-school and the respective year; if the answer is 'no', circle the 1 of 'none'.

For the persons who are initiating the level of literacy training or pre-school, then you would register the level 1 'none'.

To register the answer you should consider that:
