Chapter 5 - Guide to Complete Form no. 3

Household's questionnaire -- General and detailed types

1. Generalities
As it was mentioned, information regarding households will be gathered through 3 different forms as follows, in two of which housing information is collected as well.

Form No. 2, Household questionnaire -- General types, which is completed for most of normal and collective households.
Form No. 3, Household questionnaire -- General and detailed types, which is completed for the remaining normal and collective households and also all of the unsettled normal households.
Form No. 4, Institutional household questionnaire, for all institutional households.

Due to the comprehensiveness of Form No. 3, it will be revealed before other forms. In this questionnaire, Columns 1 to 40/3 are for the personal information about household members and questions 41 to 56 correspond to the information about housing and facilities available for the household and their phone number. Since some questions are not filled out for every household member like marital status, which is filled for persons 10 years old and above, the questionnaire is arranged in a way that enables easy access to information such as first and last names and age.
The points that should be considered in filling out Form no. 3 are mentioned above. Moreover, prior to filling the form, address information should be completed.
2. Geographic identificationsInformation about the name of province, county, district, city or rural region, zone and block/village code and village name should be written in the right place using Form no. 1, 501/1, 501/2 and 501/3.

3. Type of householdIn the first page of Form no. 3, there is a place to specify the type of household. Mark an "X" according to whether the household is a normal settled, normal unsettled or collective household. Then if the household is normal settled or collective, write the appropriate 4 digit order number in the right place based on the information contained in Form no. 1, column 12 (e.g., 0024 instead of 24). For normal unsettled households, the order number will be filled by the reviewer and you should leave it blank.

4. Is the household questionnaire two or more sheets?
There are 11 rows in this form to fill out the information about the household's members. Therefore only one sheet is required for most households. If there are more than 12 members in a household, two or more sheets are needed. This part of the questionnaire is to indicate the number of sheets. In this section, if you use more than one sheet for a household, mark "Yes = 1" on every sheet, otherwise mark "No = 2". If you marked number 1, allocate a number to each page and write it in the "sheet number" box and then put the last page number in the "number of sheets" box. For instance, if you used 3 sheets of Form no. 3, on the first sheet, "page number 1 out of 3", on the second sheet, "page number 2 out of 3" and on the third sheet, "page number 3 out of 3" should be written. If the questionnaire is only 1 sheet, you have marked the box "no = 2" and should leave the "page number - out of -" blank.

5. Mailing address and 10-digit postal code of household's residence
Ask the address and write it down so that it is easy to find without referring to the map. Consider the following in writing the address:

If the neighborhood is known by a specific name, write that down first. A neighborhood is a part of a city or village which is indicated based on the name of old neighborhoods, towns, historic places and main streets. Then, mention the type (street, alley, square, boulevard, highway, cul-de-sac, intersection, etc.) and the name of routes to reach the address. If the name mentioned by the household is different than the one written on the street sign, correct it based on the sign and put the other name in parentheses. If there are no signs, write the street type, then indicate it by the name of any public place on that street, such as mosque, school, bank, police station, etc. If the public place has a number on it, mention that as a part of the address.
For town and building complexes, declare the name and then the block number, entrance, etc.
For apartment buildings, put the number of floor and the apartment based on what is written on the door or any other place, or ask the person.
Attention: in some cities and villages, the 10-digit postal code sign is installed on the door. If so, insert the number in the right place; otherwise, ask the 10-digit code from the household. This code can be found on utility bills.
If there are no 10-digit codes available for a place but it has a 5-digit code, write it in the first 5 boxes from the left and leave the others blank.
If by any chance there is no code available for a place, leave all the corresponding boxes blank.
[Examples from original omitted here]
6. Date of the interview
Put the date of interview down as a 2-digit number in the appropriate place. This date does not necessarily mean the date of reference to the place, since it is possible that there was no one there on the first referral. Therefore, the right date is the day on which the questionnaire has been filled out. This date is of importance for further census information.
7. Household membersAs mentioned, columns 1 to 40/3 in Form no. 3 are allocated to record normal and collective household members' specifications. In order to fill the columns, you should know who is considered as a member of household.
7.1. Normal household members
Based on the definition, all of the persons who have a common residence (stable or unstable) and common expenditures, are considered as the members of a normal (settled or unsettled) household, even if they have not been present at the time. In other words, a group of people who have both mentioned conditions are members of a normal household. Most of the normal households consist of a couple and their children who live together.
In some cases, other people can be a part of the household, like:
- Relatives and acquaintances that live with the household and have common expenses with them.
- People who live with the household and use the place as a boardinghouse.
- Servants, nurses and other workers whose food, expenditures and residence are common with the household's.
In this census, people other than the ones mentioned are considered a member of the household too. Such persons are:
- Lost individuals
- People who traveled to another country for work or study purposes (and their subordinate companions) and are expected to return to their household after finishing work or studies. "Their household" refers to the one they have been a part of before leaving the country and it is expected for them to return to the same household.
* Remember not to omit the following individuals as members:
- People who are on a trip for pilgrimage, recreation, or work duty, etc. and are not present temporarily.
- People who are on military service and often spend the night with their family.
- People who have more than one residence due to work or studies but spend most of the year with this household.
Do not consider individuals whose usual residence is other than the household's as a member, even if the responder believes so. Some examples are as followed:

- Temporary guests
- People who live part of a year with the household, but their usual residence is somewhere else.
- People who have more than one residence due to work or studies but spend most of the year in the other city or village.
- People who are on military service and often do not spend the night with their family.
- People who are a member of an institutional household.
Attention: exclusively, students who live in institutional dormitories will be considered as a member of that household if, by definition, that institute is identified as their normal residence.
- People who live with another normal household and use their place as a boardinghouse.
7.2. Collective household members
People who live in a place as a group and by definition, that place is considered as their normal residence, are members of a collective household.
7.3. Institutional household members
All individuals who live together in an institute due to a common goal or quality are considered the members of that institutional household. Remember that students who live in institutional dormitories will be considered as a member of that household if, by definition, that institute is identified as their normal residence.
8. Person number, Column 1In Form no. 3 there are 11 rows to write down household members' specifications. Dedicate one row to every member and put down a two digit number in this column. Start with 01 and continue to the last member. If total members are more than 11, add another sheet for the 12th or more members. Keep in mind to fill the part "sheet of sheet" after, so it is explicit how many members there are in the household and therefore the number of sheets is distinguished. Also add on every sheet: geographic identifications, type and order number of the household, street address and 10-digit zip code, date of interview, first and last name.
If you made a mistake filling a row, you should delete that row's number and fix the next rows.
9. First and last name, Column 2
As it was mentioned in section 7 of this chapter, identify household's members and write down their first and last names clearly in the specified section of this column. If a member has more than one name, put down the name on the birth certificate.

- For normal households, write down the first and last names of the head of household (as defined) and then other members' names in the order mentioned in column 3 (relation to head of household).
- For normal households, consider the age order in writing children's names. If a baby does not have a name yet, in this column put down "baby boy" or "baby girl" and then the last name.
- When the last name repeats itself, do not use "//". Instead, write down the last name each time.

10. Relationship to the head of household, Column 3 As mentioned, each household has a head whose name is written in the first row of column 2. Therefore, the first row of the household questionnaire is always dedicated to the head of household. For that reason, in the first row of this column, code 1 (head of household's code) is written in advance. Ask each member their relationship to the head of household and write the proper code for that in the specified area.

- Do not fill this column for collective households; leave it blank. Thus, mark the number 1 off of the first row.
- For those households whose information has been filled out in more than one form, write the code down in the square under the main one, from the second sheet on.

11. Is the mother a member of this household, Column 4Ask this question of every member of the household. If the answer is yes, insert code 1 in this column, otherwise insert code 2.

- Do not fill this column for collective households; leave it blank.

12. Mother's rank in the household, Column 5For every member whose mother is a member of the household, meaning in column 4 there is a code 1 for them, indicate the mother's order number from column 1 (order number) and write it down in column 5.

- Do not fill this column for collective households; leave it blank.

13. Residential status, Column 6Put a code for each member as under:
[] 1 Present: write this code for present members. Present members mean the members who are present at the residence at the time of interview, or are at work or school, etc., and will come back to this place after work time, school hours, etc.
[] 2 Temporarily absent: for members who are temporarily absent, write down code 2. Temporary absentees are:

  • People who have left the household temporarily for the purpose of vacation, pilgrimage, visiting friends and family, work/study related trips, being confined to bed and other similar situations, and are staying somewhere else (in the country or abroad) at the time of interview.
  • Babies and their mothers who are still in the maternity hospital.
[] 3 Abroad (for work/study): for those who are working or studying abroad and it is expected of them to come back to the household's residence after finishing work/studies, write down code 3.
[] 4 Other: for subordinate persons whose superiors work or study abroad, write down code 4.
14. Gender, Column 7In this column, put down code 1 for men and boys and code 2 for women and girls. Do not guess people's gender based on their names, because some names are gender neutral.
15. Date of birth, Columns 8 and 9Ask the respondent to inform you of the year and month of birth of the members based on official documents. Then write them down as 2-digit numbers in columns 8 (month) and 9 (year). For people who don't have proper documents, put down the date they claim. If the respondent does not know, for people younger than 100 years old, write "--" in columns 8 and 9 and for people older than 100 years old, write "RR" in column 8 and "--" in column 9. In cases when the actual date of birth is different than the one on birth certificate, consider the one on the birth certificate.
15.1. Month, Column 8In this column, except for lunar months, write down the number of the month based on Persian months. To convert foreign months' names to a number, use the following table: (two columns, old and Syriac months, have been omitted)
[Note: Persian months do not correspond exactly to Gregorian months -- e.g. Farvardin is from March 21 - April 20]
Month's number: 01
Persian calendar: Farvardin
Gregorian calendar: April
Month's number: 02
Persian calendar: Ordibehesht
Gregorian calendar: May
Month's number: 03
Persian calendar: Khordad
Gregorian calendar: June
Month's number: 04
Persian calendar: Tir
Gregorian calendar: July
Month's number: 05
Persian calendar: Mordad
Gregorian calendar: August
Month's number: 06
Persian calendar: Shahrivar
Gregorian calendar: September
Month's number: 07
Persian calendar: Mehr
Gregorian calendar: October
Month's number: 08
Persian calendar: Aban
Gregorian calendar: November
Month's number: 09
Persian calendar: Azar
Gregorian calendar: December
Month's number: 10
Persian Calendar: Dey
Gregorian Calendar: January
Month's number: 11
Persian calendar: Bahman
Gregorian calendar: February
Month's number: 12
Persian calendar: Esfand
Gregorian calendar: March

- For those whose date of birth is based on the lunar calendar, whether their months of birth are specified or not, write down "MM" in column 8.
- For those people whose date of birth is based on another calendar, not the lunar calendar, be careful.
- If they are 100 years or older, whether the month of birth is specified or not, write down "RR" in this column.
- If they are less than 100 years old, and their month of birth is unspecified, put down "--" in this column.

15.2. Year of birth, Column 9In birth certificates, date of birth is defined based on the hijri solar calendar. In column 9, for the year of birth, write down the exact first two digits from the right. For instance, for people who were born in year 1309 (hijri solar), write down "09" and for people who were born in years 1325, 1282, 1300, write down (in order): "25", "82", "00".
If the year of birth in not based on hijri solar calendar, do as follows:

- If year of birth is based on the Gregorian calendar, convert it first to the solar calendar and then write the two digits from the right. In order to do this -- if the person was born in January, February or March -- deduct 622 from their year of birth and if they were born between April and December, deduct 621. The result is their year of birth based on the solar calendar. For example, if a person was born in January 1923, his year of birth based on the solar calendar would be 1301 (1923 - 622 = 1301) or if someone was born in September 1923, his year of birth in the solar calendar would be 1302 (1923 - 621 = 1302). If the month of birth is unspecified, deduct 621 from their year of birth.
- If the year of birth is based on the hijri lunar calendar, write down the exact two right digits of the year of birth in column 9.
- If the year of birth is based on any other calendar, with enough research, convert it to the solar calendar.

16. Age (at last birthday), Column 10Write down the individuals' age in two digit numbers. In this case, age means the number of full years passed from the individual's birth. For instance, everyone between 15 and 16 years old is considered 15. Calculate the individuals' age as follows and write it down in column 10.
If the month and year of birth mentioned in columns 8 and 9 is based on hijri solar calendar, do as follows:

If the person was born in Farvardin (April), Ordibehesht (May), Khordad (June), Tir (July), Mordad (August), Shahrivar (September), Mehr (October) or Aban (November), deduct his year of birth from 1385. For example, the age of someone who was born in Mordad (August) 1334, is 51 (1385 - 1334 = 51).
If the person was born in Azar (December), Dey (January), Bahman (February) and Esfand (March), deduct his year of birth from 1384. For example, if he was born in Dey (January) 1334, he is 50 (1384 - 1334 = 50) years old.
- For children younger than 1 year old (0 years old), write "--" in this column.
- If the person is age 100 or older, you don't need to calculate their age and just write "RR" in this column.
- For people whose date of birth is based on the hijri lunar calendar, deduct their year of birth from 1427 and write the result in column 10. For example, if someone was born in 1340 (in the hijri lunar calendar), he is 87 (1427 - 1340 = 87) years old.
- For those who have "--" in columns 8 and 9, write their age based on what they claim. If the respondent is unable to answer precisely, try to help them indicate their age based on other members of the household.
- For those whose month of birth is unidentified and their year of birth is on the hijri solar calendar, deduct the year of birth from 1385 to calculate their age.
Remember that filling out some other information later on in the questionnaire is directly related to individuals' age and any errors in calculating or writing down the age will also affect those columns.
- For your convenience, the ages of people who were born in 1285 and the following years in the hijri solar calendar have been calculated and are available in a table at the back of the maps folder. You can use this table to determine their ages.

17. Place of birth, Column 11For every member of the household, indicate their place of birth as follows and write down the code in the designated area. Place of birth means the village or the city which was their mother's usual residence at the time of birth. Therefore, remember what is written in their birth certificate as the place of birth is not necessarily their actual place of birth. Every person's place of birth has one of the following relations to their place of residence at the moment. After indicating the situation, write down the proper code.
[] 1, This city or village: if the place of birth is the same place where enumeration is taking place, put down code 1 in this column.
[] 2 and [] 3, Another place: city or village: if the place of birth is another city or village in the country, write code 2 if it is a city and write code 3 if a village.
[] 4, Abroad (name of the country): if the person was born outside the country, in the left square of this column write 4 and then write down the name of the country in the designated place.

- Do not fill this column for normal unsettled households; leave it blank.

18. Religion, Column 12To fill this column, do as follows:

For persons who haven't attained puberty yet, consider their father's religion or any religion they are practicing
[] Muslim
[] 2 Christian (Assyrian or Chaldean)
[] 3 Christian (Armenian)
[] 4 Other Christian
[] 5 Jewish
[] 6 Zoroastrian
[] 7 Other

19. Citizenship, Column 13Ask their citizenship, and write the proper code to their answer. If you put "9" for anyone in this column, write down the name of the country in the designated area.

If someone has more than one citizenship, indicate it based on their claim.
[] 1 Iran
[] 2 Afghanistan
[] 3 Iraq
[] 4 Pakistan
[] 5 Turkey
[] 6 Turkmenistan
[] 7 Azerbaijan
[] 8 Armenia
[] 9 Other countries

20. Immigration status, Columns 14 to 18Fill these columns only for present or temporarily absent members of the household (codes 1 and 2 in column 6) and leave it blank for other cases.

- Do not fill these columns for normal unsettled households; leave it blank.

20.1. Have you changed your city/village of residency since October 1996? Column 14To fill this column, ask the respondent whether they have changed their city/village of residency since October 1996 (Aban 1375). If the answer is "Yes," put code 1 in this column, otherwise, put code 2. Obviously, changing the place of residence within a city or village is not considered as a change in city/village of residency.

- If a person has changed the city/village of residence within a county, write down code 1 for them also.

20.2. Duration of residence in this city/village (in years), Column 15Fill this column only for people who have changed their place of residence since October 1996 (code 1 in column 14), and leave it blank for others. For this purpose, ask them the duration of their residence in this city or village and write down the result in the form of a two digit number in years. For instance, for someone who has been living here for 4 years and 11 months, write "04" in this column. For those who haven't been living there for more than one year, write "--".
Since you ask this question only from people who have been living in this city/village from October 1996 or after, the number you write in this column cannot be bigger than 10.
Remember that the duration of residence in this city/village is the time during which they have started living here constantly through the enumeration time.
20.3. The reason for changing the previous place of residence, Column 16Fill this column for people who have changed their place of residence since October 1996 (code 1 in column 14), and write the proper code from 1 to 9 and leave it blank for others.
[] 1, Seeking job : for people who were jobless before leaving their previous place of residence and entered this city/village seeking a job, write code 1. Also for people who were jobless in their previous place of residence and came to this city/village for a specific job opportunity, write code 1.
[] 2, Seeking better job: for those who had a job prior to leaving their old place and changed it in order to seek a better job (in terms of income, conditions, etc.), put down code 2. Also for those who had a job in their old place and came to this city/village for a specific better job, write code 2.
[] 3, Job transfer: for those who changed their previous place of residence because of a job transfer in a company to this city/village, write down code 3.
[] 4, Education: for people who changed their previous place of residence in order to study in this city/village, write code 4.
[] 5, End of education: for those who changed their previous place of residence to this city/village because of finishing their education, write code 5.
[] 6, Serving military service: for those who changed their place of residence because of serving in military service in this city/village, write down code 6.
[] 7, End of military service: for those people who changed their previous place of residence and entered this city/village because of the end of their military service, write code 7.
[] 8, Accompanying the family: for those people who changed their place of residence because other members of the household did, write code 8. Also, enter code 8 for those who changed their place of residence to this city/village due to marriage.
[] 9, Other: if the change of place is due to any other reasons but the above, like weather conditions, better amenities, becoming imprisoned, etc., write code 9 for them.

- For those who have multiple reasons for changing their residence, ask them the most important reason and write that in this column.
- For people who have changed their residence more than once since October 1996, consider only the last previous residence.

20.4. Previous place of residence, Column 17Ask those who have changed their place of residence since October 1996 (code 1 in column 14), their previous residence. The last place of residence has one of the following conditions compared to the current one:
[] 1 and 2 This county: city/village, if the person's previous place of residence is located within the boundaries of this county (where enumeration is taking place), write down either code 1 or 2 in the following order: if the previous place had been a city when the person left it, code 1, and if it had been a village, write down code 2.
[] 3 and 4 Another county: city/village, if the previous place of residence is located outside of the borders of this county and in another one, and it had been a city when the person left it, code 3, and if it had been a village, write code 4.
[] 5 Abroad, put down code 5 for everyone whose previous place of residence is outside the country.
20.5. Province name for the previous place of residence, Column 18Fill this column for those who have codes 3, 4 or 5 in column 17. For those who have code 3 or 4 in column 17, write down the name of the previous county (based on the current political division of the country) and for those who have code 5 in column 17, write down the name of the previous country of residence.

- If the respondent cannot provide the name of the previous county of residence and only identifies the name of the previous district or city, find the name using the tables provided in appendices and write it in the proper place. In the aforesaid tables, you can find the names of districts and cities along with the relevant counties in alphabetical order.

21. Education and literacy, Columns 19 to 22Fill out these columns for anyone age 6 and older, which means for anyone who was born before November 2000, and leave it blank for anyone born after this date.
21.1. Is the individual in school? Column 19Anyone who is in school under the Islamic Republic of Iran's educational circumstances is considered a student. Students of theological schools, people in literacy schools and people who study abroad are also considered as in school students. Write down code 1 for students who study in the country at the time of enumeration, code 2 for students who study abroad and code 3 for those who are not students. Therefore, people studying at community colleges or certificate programs such as computers, foreign languages, painting, sewing, etc., are also considered as students.

- Consider students who have a semester/year off of school as in school students.
- Consider those who are accepted for a second semester at college, if they have registered, as students.

21.2. Literacy status, Column 20Define literacy status for every 6 year old and above and write down the proper code in column 20.
[] 1 Literate: consider everyone who can read and write a simple text in Farsi or any other language a literate person, whether they have an official document or not. All the students (codes 1 and 2 in column 19) are in this category.
[] 2 Illiterate: put down code 2 for those illiterate people. Consider people who can read but cannot write as illiterate. Note not to consider them illiterate only because they are deaf or blind or have speaking disorders; write down code 1 for them if they can read and write.
21.3. Grade, course or degree and the field of study, Columns 21 and 22Fill columns 21 and 22 only for those who are literate (code 1, column 20) and leave it blank for others. Since the responses to questions about degree and the field of study will be coded based on standard international classification, it is necessary to write the answers accurately and precisely based on the following description:
Just a reminder: Iran's education system is as follows:
5 years of elementary school, 3 years of middle school, 3 years of high school, 1 year precollege, 2 years of community college and/or 4 years of college, 2 years of graduate school, 5 years of PhD (higher education duration can be different from one field of study to another)

21.3.1. Grade, course or degree, Column 21Follow the order based on the individual's grade:
a. Elementary and middle school (junior high) students
For students (codes 1 and 2, column 19) from entrance to the end of middle school, write down their grade and the school they are at. For instance, "1st grade elementary school" or "7th grade junior high" (middle school) include both the grade and the course.

- For those who are in primary levels in a literacy school, do the same as elementary school students.
b. Elementary and middle school non-students
For non-students who have not finished elementary school, write down the highest grade completed with the name of course, for instance, "3rd grade elementary school".
For non-students who have not finished middle school (junior high), write down the highest degree or grade they have finished and the name of the course, for example, "7th grade middle school".
For those non-students whose last degree is elementary or middle school, write down: "end of elementary school" or "end of middle school".
c. High school students
For high school students, mention grade and the word "high school", their field of study and the type of school system, like, "2nd grade high school, technical-credit system" or "2nd grade high school, theoretical-credit system". In these examples, technical and theoretical are the field of study and the word "credit system" represents the type of school system. Because in the 1st grade of high school, the field study is yet to be defined, write for those students "1st grade high school, credit system".
For those in precollege courses, write "precollege".
d. High school non-students
For high school non-students (prior to finishing high school), write down the last degree or highest grade along with the word "high school", their field of study and type of school system. For instance:
"2nd grade high school, technical -- credit system"
"3rd grade high school, agriculture -- 4-years system"
"1st grade high school -- 6-years system"
"5th grade high school -- 6-years system"
For those non-students whose last degree was a high school diploma, write "high school diploma" along with field of study and type of school system. For instance:
"High school diploma, theoretical -- credit system"
"High school diploma, natural science -- 4-year system"
"High school diploma, literature -- 6-year system"
"High school diploma, arts -- 6-year system"
For those non-students whose last degree is precollege, write "precollege".
e. Higher education students
For university and higher education institutes, put down the name of education level. For example, "community college", "college (undergraduate)", "graduate", "doctorate", "PhD".
f. Higher education graduates (non-students)
For non-students who have a higher education degree or its equivalent, put down the highest degree awarded. For example, "community college", "college (undergraduate)", "graduate", "doctorate", "PhD".
For an individual in higher education who left school before finishing the degree, write down the last awarded degree. For instance, for someone who entered college after receiving a precollege degree and dropped out of school in the 2nd year of college, write "precollege" in this column.
g. Students and non-students in theological science
For students and non-students of theological school, since theological science includes different levels (preliminaries, levels 1 to 4 and 1st and 2nd kharej), write down the name of level and the word "theological science"; such as "theological science preliminaries", "theological science, level 3", or "theological science, 2nd kharej".
For other religions write as follows:

  • "Sunni theological science", for Sunnite.
  • "Other sects' theological science", for other Islamic sects.
  • "Other religions' theological science", for other religions.
h. Adult students
For adult students in adult literacy schools, besides 5th graders, write down "movement" ["movement" stands for adult literacy and education programs], and for 5th graders put down "movement 5th".
i. Adult non-students (graduates)

j. Students and graduates of abroad programs
For those who study or have graduated abroad, do as follows:
If their highest degree is high school, convert their years of education (not including failed years) to its equivalent in the current Iranian education system. Act exactly like as instructed about students and non-students of high school. For instance, for someone who has studied in the U.K. for 8 years, write down "End of middle school" and for someone who has studied in Canada for 10 years, put down "2nd grade high school - credit system". Also for someone who has finished their 11 years of education, write down "high school diploma - credit system". For someone who has finished their 12 years of education, write down "precollege".
If the above mentioned individuals do not have an official degree, have studied theological science or have higher education, proceed as stated before.
k. Literate individuals without a degree
For those who are literate but do not have an official transcript or degree, write "unofficial" in this column.
21.3.2. Field of study, Column 22Ask the respondent their field of study for the grade, course or degree mentioned in column 21 and write it down in this column. Note the following points:

- For those grades and levels which are not divided into different fields of study, write "general" in this column: elementary school, middle school, 1st grade high school, adult literacy programs, and in some cases 1st to 3rd grade of high school in the 6-years system.
- For those grades and levels which are divided into different fields of study, write down the complete name of the field: some cases of 1st to 3rd grade high school in the 6-years system, 4th to 6th years of high school in the 6-years system, 4-years high school system, 2nd and 3rd year of high school in the credit system, precollege and higher education. For instance:
- If the individual's degree is the 4-years high school system diploma, write the name of field, such as "math and physics", "natural science", etc.
- If the individual's degree is the 6-years high school system diploma, write the name of field, such as "literature", "natural science", etc.
- If an individual is studying in the technical field, write the details, such as "mechanics", "electronics", etc.
- If an individual's high school degree is in the work-study field, write the name of subordinates, such as "electronics", "carpentry", "establishments", etc.
- If an individual is studying chemical engineering or teaching chemistry, write down "chemical engineering" or "teaching chemistry".

22. Working status, column 23Fill this column based on the following directions for all the members of the household who are 10 years old and above and leave it blank for the rest of them. To define an individual's working status, you should know the definition of work.
Work: the part of economic activities (physical or intellectual), the purpose of which is to gain profits (cash or non-cash) for the goal of producing goods or demonstrating service.
People who work are distributed in two major groups; freelance (they work for themselves) and salaried (they get paid in exchange for their work). Pay attention to the following:
The following people's activities are also considered as work:

- Individuals who work for one of the household members without earning an income (working for free for family). These people are usually women and teenagers who help other members of the family for free in activities such as farming, animal husbandry, carpet weaving, etc.
- Individuals serving in the military service.
- Individuals who serve in the Basij militia and earn money from it.
- Individuals who work at their residence in order to earn money, such as carpet weaving, sewing, hairdressing, typing, tutoring, fixing small electronics, baby-sitting, etc.
- Individuals who are occupied with activities like carpet weaving and sewing in order to produce durable goods for their own consumption.
- Individuals who are building, fixing or redecorating their own residence.
- Individuals who are interning and are involved directly in the production of goods and service, whether it is for exchange of money or not.
- Women or men who are occupied with activities such as farming, gardening, animal husbandry, fishing, etc.
The following activities are not considered as work:
- Unpaid activities at home for other members of the household like cooking, house holding, taking care of children, etc., which are mostly done by women.
- Social volunteering services at charities and Basij, etc.
- Small house maintenances such as faucets and valves, fixing windows and small electronics.
- Investing in economical activities without participating in management or actual operations, such as the stock exchange or investing money in companies.

Based on the definition of work and its examples, define the working status of those 10 years old and above based on the following explanations and write the code in column 23.[] 1 Has worked at least 1 hour in the past 7 days
For those who have worked (based on the definition of work) at least 1 hour in the past 7 days. Note:

- Place 1 for those who have at least worked an hour in the past 7 days, even if not in their usual occupation.
- Investigate all those 10 years old and above members of the household and do not stop for the reason that they are housewives or students, because usually in rural areas women and children of the household participate in economic activities based on the work definition, such as farming and animal husbandry. If they have worked at least one hour in the past 7 days, write code 1 for them.
- For those individuals who have a job but have not worked in the past 7 days, do not allocate code 1 and act as explained for code 2.
[] 2 Has a job, but has not worked for some reason in the past 7 days
For those individuals who have not worked at least an hour in the past 7 days (did not get code 1) but have a job, allocate code 2. These people, who are called temporarily absent from work, should be certain about their return to the employer, if they are salaried. Usually during this absence, these individuals receive all or part of their earnings, and their nonappearance is allowed by the rules. If these people are self-employed, their business should endure and they should be able to retrieve it again.
Note: those who work for family without earning money are not considered temporarily absent from work if they have not worked at least 1 hour in the past 7 days.
The following are some hints about temporarily absent individuals from work:

- Farmers who work for their own selves and have not worked in the past 7 days due to the seasonal nature of their work.
- People who have not worked in the past 7 days since they have a sequential job.
- People who have gotten a scholarship from their company and are students, and for that reason have not worked in the past 7 days.
- Individuals who have not worked in the past 7 days because of a leave of absence, holidays, sickness, vacation, etc.
- Individuals, who have not worked temporarily due to impermanent changes in their company, machinery and systems breakdown, lack of clients and projects.
- People who lost their jobs but still have official bonds to their job.
- For those who have a job but have not worked in that job for the past 7 days but have worked in another area which matches the definition of work, do not allocate code 2. Instead, consider code 1.
- For those who work for family without earning an income, if they have worked at least an hour in the last 7 days, allocate code 1, and if they have not worked for at least 1 hour, do not allocate code 2 and perform as described below.
[] 3 Has been seeking for a job in the past 30 days and is available to work
For those individuals who have not worked at least 1 hour in the past 7 days and did not have a job (do not have code 1 or 2), if they have both of the following conditions, allocate code 3:

- Those who have done certain attempts in the past 30 days in order to find a job, such as: register and follow job agencies, asking friends, contacting employers, job ads, etc.
- Those who are available to work, which means they are prepared to start a job in a 15 day period (including the past and the coming 7 days).
[] 4 Waiting for a new job to begin or to return to the old job and is available to work
For those who were not allocated any of the codes 1, 2, or 3 and have the following conditions, designate code 4:

- They are waiting for a new job, meaning that there is a job available for them and they will start working in the near future and are prepared for work (based on the definition).
- They are waiting to restart their old jobs and prepared for work (based on the definition). "Waiting to restart their old jobs" means that they have lost their job for a reason but are waiting to restart it.
[] 5 Student
For those who were not allocated any of the 1, 2, 3, or 4 codes and are considered as students by official education curriculum, in or outside of the country, assign code 5.
[] 6 Has income - without a job
For those who were not allocated any of the 1, 2, 3, or 4 codes and have an income like social security, real estate, interest from savings or stocks, etc., designate code 6
[] 7 Housekeeper
For those who were not allocated any of the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 codes and are occupied with housekeeping, assign code 7.
[] 8 Other
For those who have none of the above conditions, such as people trying to get to college, seniors, etc., allocate code 8.
23. Occupation, Industry, "Employment status", Columns 24, 25 and 26Fill these columns for any 10 years old and above member of the household who have worked in the last 7 days, or have a job but have not worked in the past 7 days for specific reasons (codes 1 and 2 in column 23) and leave it blank for other members.
Note:

- For those who have a job but have not worked in the past 7 days (temporarily absent, code 2 in column 23), fill these columns based on the usual job of the person.
- For those who have worked in another field other than their usual job in the past 7 days (code 1 in column 23), fill these columns based on the person's field of work in the last 7 days.
- For those who have worked in more than one field in the past 7 days, fill these columns based on what they give you as their main job. If the respondent fails to indicate the main job, consider the one they have allocated more time to during the past week, and if the timing was even for all the jobs, consider the one that they have more work experience in.

23.1. Occupation, Column 24Occupation is the type of the work (based on the definition of work and its examples) which has been performed by the individual during the past 7 days. In case of temporarily absent individuals, occupation is the type of the work they have carried out during the time of employment.
All of the mentioned occupations for this question will be coded based on the standard international occupation categorization. Therefore it is necessary to write the name of the occupation clearly and detailed in this column.

- Usually there are different occupations at the work place, so take note to mark the one the individual is practicing. For example there are different occupations at an elementary school such as principal, teacher, janitor, etc.
- Note not to mix profession or field of study with occupation, because they are not necessarily the same. For instance, if an agricultural engineer is working as an accounting chief administrator, his occupation is the "accounting chief administrator".
- For those who have more than one occupation in agriculture, pay attention to define their main occupation. Agricultural occupations are: "farmer", "gardener", "saplings planter", "florist", "animal husbandry", "breeding poultry", "apiculture", "pisciculturist", "breeding silkworms".
- In order to define some agricultural occupations, such as "farmer", "gardener", "saplings planter", consider the following descriptions:
- Farmer is someone who works in planting, fertilizing and harvesting one or more annual crops, such as wheat, oat, rice, sugarcane, vegetables, summer crops, etc.
- Gardner is someone who works in producing permanent products such as apples, pears, grapes, oranges, tea, etc.
- Saplings planter is someone who breeds saplings and sells them to gardeners.
- Considering that some occupations, specifically in production like dairy, spinning and weaving, weaving carpets, etc., can be performed with or without the help of machinery, be specific in asking them about their occupations. If their occupation is with the help of machinery, mention "operator" in writing the name of the occupation; such as "dairy production operator", "spinning operator", "carpet weaving operator".
- In cases in which carrying out job duties requires different skills, consider the duties that need the highest level of skills as the occupation. For instance, if someone is performing both as a typist and archivist in a company, record the one which requires higher skills as his occupation.
- In cases in which job duties are related to different stages of production and distribution of goods and services, if none of the duties overcomes the others, consider the duties related to production as their occupation. For example, if someone is working in a confectionery both baking and selling goods, consider their occupation as confectioner.
- For military and disciplinary services' employees, except those serving military services, assign "military" or "disciplinary" where needed.
- For those who are serving in military services, either in military or disciplinary forces, consider "serving in military service" as their occupation; otherwise, consider their duties in the serving location as their occupation.
- For those serving in the Basij militia and this service is considered as their job and they are earning an income from it, write down "military".
- Avoid writing general titles such as employee, technician, worker, doctor, engineer, agriculturalist, teacher, specialist, free-lancer, shoemaker, goldsmith, driver, etc., because each of these general titles include several job titles which have individual codes in job categories.

The following examples are to illustrate this matter:

23.2. Industry, Column 25For those who received code 1 or 2 in column 23, define the financial activity of the work place or the related activity to the job and write it down in this column.
Note that all the mentioned activities in response to this question will be coded based on international standard categorization. Therefore, it is necessary to define people's main activity of the work place based on the following explanations and write it out.

- Write the main activity of the work place in a manner that shows exactly the activity of that place and avoid writing general titles such as department store, store, office, company, factory, etc., because these titles do not specify what is sold in the store, what the activity of the office or company is and what is produced in the factory.
- For those who work in ministries, organizations, institutions, public associations and Islamic revolution foundations, in case the name of the work place expresses the activity, put down the name of the organization, institution or foundation in this column; such as ministry of agriculture, department of education, department of ports and inland water transport, elementary school, Imam Khomeini's Relief Foundation, etc. Otherwise, in addition to the name of the work place, include the explanation of the main activity in parenthesis; such as Tavanir company (production and distribution of energy), Aseman company (airline services), Iran Tanker (transporting goods), etc.
- For those who have a contract with the private sector (human and legal entities) but work in public institutions, municipalities, etc., indicate their main activity of the work place as that of the human and legal entity and write in column 25.
- In some cases, their activities are such that they do not have a permanent work place, like construction works, taxi driving, peddling, etc. In these cases, write down the name of the activity they are occupied with as the main activity of work place, such as construction, taxi driving, peddling, etc.
- For wholesale trades, include the word "wholesale" along with the name of the sold good.
- In importing and exporting goods related activities, make sure to mention the words "import" and "export" along with the name of the good.
- For activities related to "production" or "maintenance" of a good, make sure to mention the word "production" or "maintenance" along with the main activity of the work place, because the production and maintenance of some goods each have their individual codes, such as fixing computers and producing computers. In some cases that the production and maintenance are completed together, put the phrase "production and maintenance" with the name of the good, such as tractor-production and maintenance. See the following examples.

Job title: Hand-made shoemaker
Job code: 7422
Main activity of the work place: Shoe production
Activity code: 1920

Write the activity of those working in agriculture and animal husbandry clearly and avoid general names.

23.3. Employment status, column 26Record people's employment statuses related to their occupation, based on the following descriptions and write the proper code in this column.
[] 1 Employer: is someone who has employed at least one person. The following examples serve to illustrate this more:

- The owner of a timber factory, who has hired a few salaried employees to manage the factory, is an employer.
- The owner of a food supply store, who has hired a shop-boy, is an employer.
- A construction worker, who has won a contract for construction and is performing it with the help of a few salaried workmen, is an employer.
- Those who use only the help of family workers without paying them any money are not considered employers.
- Those who are employees themselves, even if a few other people are under their supervision, are not employers. For example, those who work for government in any position are not employers.
[] 2 Freelance worker: is someone who has not hired anyone to perform his work and is not salaried himself also. Note the following:

- Someone who manages his own fruit store alone or with help of his partner is a freelancer.
- Those who use only the help of family workers and do not disburse any money to them are freelance workers. For example, someone who only uses the help of his children who live with him and does not pay them money is a freelancer.
- Consider a farmer who participates in harvesting time as a separate freelance worker, if he has not hired anyone.
[] 3 Public sector - salaried: is considered for those who work in ministries, governmental organizations, institutions, Islamic revolutionary foundations and other public organizations like public banks and municipalities, and earn an income from that, such as employees at the department of education.

- A salaried person in the public sector might be official, on a contract, daily-paid, etc.
- Employees of the production, commercial, etc. sectors which are under public sector supervision are considered as salaried by the public sector.
- Those on military service at the time of enumeration are considered as public sector salaried employees.
- Those who work for private contractors, even if those contractors work for public institutions, are not considered as public sector salaried.
[] 4 Private sector - salaried: are those who work for people or private organizations in exchange for money or services, such as a CEO of a private construction company, a private kindergarten teacher, an accountant in a private hospital, a construction worker's trainee, a cashier in a private bank, etc.
Note that:

- Cooperative companies' salaried individuals are considered private sector salaried.
- Those who have contracts with the private sector and work in governmental organizations, municipalities, etc. (public sector) are considered private sector salaried.
- Unpaid interns will be assigned to codes 3 or 4 based on the sector (public or private) they are working for.
[] 5 Unpaid family worker: consider anyone who is working for a relative without earning an income as an unpaid family worker.
24. Place of work or study, Column 27Fill this column for those present or temporarily absent (codes 1 and 2 in Column 6) who work or study (codes 1, 2, or 5 in Column 23) and leave it blank for others.
Ask those who have a job (codes 1 or 2 in Column 23) the city or village they work in and those who are students (code 5 in Column 23) the city or village they study in and assign one of the following codes based on the situation.
[] 1 This city or village: for those who work or study in the city that the enumeration is taking place, consider code 1 in the left box of this column.

- For those who do not have a permanent work place due to the nature of their jobs, such as coach drivers, paddlers, etc., assign code 1.
[] 2 and [] 3 Another place: city or village: if the work or study place is located anywhere outside of where the enumeration is taking place, assign code 2 if the place is a city and write down the name in the designated area, and assign code 3 if it is a village.
Considering that this column is filled out based on individuals' status in column 23; the students should be asked of their place of study only if they have code 5 in Column 23. Note that if they have code 1 or 2 in Column 23, this column should be filled out based on their work place.
25. Marital status, Column 28Fill this column out for everyone who is age 10 and older in the household (those born before October 1996) and leave it blank for other members. Identify their marital status and write the corresponding code in the designated box.
[] 1 Married: for those who are married at the time of enumeration, assign code 1. Consider those who have a marriage contract as married, even if they do not live together yet, but do not consider those who are engaged as married.
[] 2 Widowed: assign code 2 for those whose spouse has passed away and they have not yet married again.
[] 3 Divorced: assign code 3 for those who are divorced and have not yet married again. Do not consider those who are separated but not divorced yet as divorced -- assign code 1 to them.
[] 4 Never married: for those who have never been married yet, assign code 4.

- Define the marital status for those who have been married more than once based on their current marital status. For instance, if they are divorced from their first spouse, married again, their second spouse has passed away and they are not yet married again, assign code 2 to them.
- If a man has more than one wife, he and all of his wives are considered as married and should be assigned to code 1.

26. Number of changes in marital status, Column 29Fill this column for those who have been married more than once (codes 1, 2, and 3 in Column 28) and leave it blank for others.
Ask the number of changes in the person's marital status and write the answer in Column 29. For example, for someone who has married again after their first spouse has passed away, write 2 in this column.
Note that for men who have another wife at the same time, the second marriage is not considered as a change in their marital status.
It is apparent that for those who have been married only once, you should write 1 in this column.
27. Have ever given birth to live-born children, Column 30Fill this column for all the women who have been married at least once, even if they do not have a spouse at the time of enumeration, meaning the women who have codes 1, 2, or 3 in Column 28. Ask them whether they have given birth to a live-born child or not. If the answer is "Yes", write code 1, otherwise code 2.
Note: a live-born child means that it has had one of the expressions of life (crying, flouncing, breathing, etc.), even if it died shortly after birth.
27.1. Number of live-born children, Columns 31 through 34

27.1.1. Total, Column 31 and 32
"Number of live born children" is the number of living children a woman (who has been married at least once) has given birth to up to now. These children might be alive or dead at the present time and might be living with this or another household. Ask the total number of live-born children for any woman who has been assigned code 1 in Column 30 and write the answer as a two-digit number, based on the gender of the child, in each of the boxes in Columns 31 and 32.
- Note that for those women who have been married more than once, the sum of the number of children obtained from all the marriages should be written in both of these columns. For instance, for a woman who has given birth to a son in her last marriage and 2 daughters in her current marriage, write 01 in Column 31 and 02 in Column 32.
- Note that for those women who have given birth only to boys or girls, write the number of children in one column and mark the other as "--".

27.1.2. Alive at present, Columns 33 and 34
Alive children at present for any woman who has been married at least once is the number of children she has given birth to who are alive at the time of enumeration. These children might be obtained from one or more marriages. It is also possible that they are living with this household or another one.
For any woman who has been married at least once, for whom you have written the total number of children born alive in columns 31 and 32, ask the number of children living at the present time and write it as a two-digit number based on gender in columns 33 and 34.
- Note that all the numbers written in Columns 33 and 34 should sum to be equal or smaller than that of Columns 31 and 32.
- For those women who have only given birth to boys or girls, in case their children are alive, write the number in the corresponding column (33 or 34) and if they are not alive at the time, mark it as "--". In this case, the column related to the other gender will be left blank.

28. Has given birth to live-born children in the past 365 days, Column 35Fill this column for all women between ages 10 and 54 who have been married at least once (codes 1, 2, and 3 in Column 28) and who received code 1 in Column 30. In order to fill this column, ask the qualified women whether they have given birth to a live-born child in the past 365 days or not. If the answer is "Yes", assign them code 1 in this column, otherwise code 2.
Note that for those women who have given birth to a child in October 1996, you should assign code 1 only if their child is not 1 year old yet; in other words, their child's birthday has not arrived yet.
28.1. Number of children born alive in the past 365 days, Columns 36 to 39

28.1.1. Total, Columns 36 and 37
Fill these columns only for those women between 10 and 54 who have been married at least once (codes 1, 2, and 3 in column 28) and who have a code 1 in column 35, and leave it blank for others. Ask their total number of live-born children in the past 365 days (whether the children are living at present or not) and based on their gender put it down in columns 36 and 37.
- For those women who have given birth only to boys or girls, write the number in one of the columns 36 or 37 and mark the other column with "--".

28.1.2. Alive at present, Columns 38 and 39
Number of children alive at present means the number of children who have been born in the past 365 days and are alive at the time of enumeration. Ask this number and based on their gender write it in each of columns 38 and 39.
It is obvious that the number written in column 38 should be equal to or less than the number written in column 36 and the number in column 39 should be equal to or less than the number in column 37.
- Note that for those women who have given birth only to boys or girls in the past 365 days, if their children are alive, write the number in the appropriate column and if they are not alive at present, mark the column "--". In this case, the other column for the other gender will be left blank.

29. Disability status, Columns 40/1 to 40/3In this column, some specific types of disability should be recorded. These kinds of disabilities might be a result of disease, war, accident or congenital. Read the cases for the respondent in the order written in the questionnaire and ask them whether there is a person in the household who is facing at least one of these disabilities.
If none of the members of the household have any disability conditions, mark the box 2 ("No") and leave all the columns corresponding to this question blank. But if some of the members have at least one of the listed disabilities, mark box 1 ("Yes") and ask the respondent to specify the disabled person and the type of their disability. After identifying the disabled persons, write the corresponding code or codes to the type of disability in columns 40/1 to 40/3 and for other members of the household who do not have any of the disabilities listed, mark the column 40/1 with "--" and leave Columns 40/2 and 40/3 blank.
In case the disabilities listed in this column are not apparent enough for the respondent and s/he has difficulties identifying them, help them as follows:
[] 1, Blind: is referring to someone who has lost the sight of both eyes and cannot see, even with the help of a tool like glasses, or their ability to see is only enough for them to identify light around them but cannot recognize any movement farther than one meter (3 feet). Assign code 1 to a blind person, based on the above explanation.
[] 2, Deaf: a deaf person is someone who is not able to hear anything even with the help of a device like a hearing aid. In fact, a deaf person has no reactions even to a very loud sound like a shout. Assign code 2 to a deaf person.
[] 3, Speech and voice disorder: a speech and voice disorder means any kind of weakness in speaking or making sounds by throat in a normal and natural way. Some examples of speech and voice disorders are as follow:

- Those who are unable to speak (mute).
- Those who speak with involuntary pauses or repetitions (speech impediment).
- Those who due to a larynx defect, disease or any other reason are not able to make a natural sound from their throat, their voice breaks off or their voice is completely different than that of a normal one, like men whose voices are delicate because of a throat surgery.
- Those whose speaking is not fluent and smooth due to mental problems.

For any members of the household who have a speech and voice disorder, assign code 3.
[] 4, Hand amputation: the loss of thumb or other four fingers together or arm amputation from any point lower than the shoulder in any of the arms is considered as a hand amputation. For any member who has an amputation in a part of their hand/arm, assign code 4.
[] 5, Hand impairment: hand impairment means a shortage of performance or any deformation in the hand, forearm, elbow, arm or shoulder in any of the arms. Examples of hand impairment are as follow:

- Hand paralysis
- Loss of the pointing finger (note that the loss of other fingers besides the pointing finger and thumb is not considered as a hand impairment.)
- Any type of deformation of the arm like thinness or shortness compared to the normal condition, etc.
- Any kind of deficiency in performance in holding objects.

For any member who has an impairment in the arm, assign code 5.

- Note that since mentioning only "hand impairment" is not sufficient for the respondent to distinguish it from hand amputation, it is necessary to explain the examples for him.
[] 6, Leg amputation: leg amputation means the loss of toes, ankle, knee or thigh in any of the legs. In other words, any kind of loss lower than the pelvis in any of the legs is leg amputation. For any member who has a leg amputation, write code 6.
[] 7, Leg impairment: leg impairment means a shortage of performance or deformation of the toes, ankle, knee, thigh or pelvis in any of the legs. Examples of leg impairment are as follows:

- Leg paralysis
- Any unusual shape of the leg like shortness compared to the other leg, abnormal thinness, etc.
- Any type of deficiency in performance of the leg such as imbalance in walking (staggering), etc.

For any member who has a leg impairment, assign code 7. Since the phrase "leg impairment" is not sufficient for the respondent to distinguish it from leg amputation, it is necessary to explain some examples to them.
[] 8, Torso impairment: torso means the part of the body including the neck, back and chest and torso impairment means any deformation or deficiency in performance of the skeletal and muscular structure of the torso. Examples are as follows:

- Torso paralysis, meaning that the person is not able to change the position of the torso (for instance from resting to sitting, from sitting to standing) due to a general torso paralysis.
- Any deformation or deficiency in performance of the spinal column, like deflection of the spinal column to the sides or to the front (crooked back).
- Torso prolapsed, meaning that the person is not able to hold the body straight.

In case of disabilities related to the impairment of the hand, leg and torso, note the following:

- Those having myeloid impairment, based on the aspects of their impairment, are facing one or more of the hand, leg or torso impairments.
- Those having myeloid impairment in the bottom of the torso are mostly facing leg paralysis and those having myeloid impairment in their chest and neck are usually facing hand, leg and torso impairment.
- For any member having torso impairment, consider code 8.
[] 9, Mental disorder: a person has a mental disorder if their IQ is less than normal so that they have retardation. These people are weaker than others of the same age in learning and are dependent and in need of others for their daily personal matters. If a member of the household has a mental disorder based on the answer of the respondent, consider code 9 for them.

- Note that those studying in Special Children Schools (mentally retarded) and those who are under particular care in special organizations for mentally retarded people should be considered as having mental disorders.
To fill these columns, pay attention to the following:
Any person having a disability can have one or more types of disabilities. Therefore, Columns 40/1 to 40/3 are designed to record a maximum of three disabilities.

- If someone has only one kind of disability, write the code in column 40/1 and mark other columns with "--". For instance, for someone whose leg is amputated from their knee, write code "6" in column 40/1 and mark columns 40/2 and 40/3 with "--".
- If someone has two kinds of disabilities, write the codes in columns 40/1 and 40/2 and mark column 40/3 with "--". For example, for a deaf person who also has a speech disorder, write down code 2 in Column 40/1, code 3 in Column 40/2 and mark column 40/3 with "--".
- If a person has 3 types of the listed disabilities, write the codes in Columns 40/1 to 40/3. For instance, for someone who is completely paralyzed and is unable to move the arm, leg and torso, write codes 5, 7, and 8 in Columns 40/1 , 40/2, and 40/3. For someone who is blind, deaf and mute, put down codes 1, 2, and 3 in the mentioned columns.
- If a person's disabilities are more than 3 of the listed, identify the three of them that limit the person's life the most and write the corresponding codes in these columns.

Note: on page 2 of Form no. 3, some spots are designed to record the number of household members, number of male, number of female, number of literate and number of illiterate. Do not fill these sections, since they will be filled out by a reviewer.
30. General explanation about questions 41 through 56Fill question 41 only for normal settled households and leave it blank for other households. But fill questions 42 to 55 also for collective households in addition to normal settled ones.
Note: For those normal settled and collective households for which you filled more than one sheet of questionnaire, fill these questions along with question 56 only on the first sheet and leave them blank on other sheets.
31. Does the household have one of the following items, Question 41Ask the respondent whether a motorcycle (with gearbox or mopeds), light automobile and computer are owned by the household and mark the corresponding box for "Yes" or "No". A light automobile means car, pick-up, etc., and does not include minibus, bus and similar vehicles. If the household has a computer (marked "Yes" in the box), ask the respondent whether at least one of the members of household uses the Internet in the place of residence or not, and mark "Yes" or "No" in the box. Using Internet means [using it] at least once in a month on a normal basis.
Note: in cases that one of the members of the household owns one of the mentioned items due to their job and it can be used by other members if needed, consider the household as having those items.
32. Main fuel type consumed by household, Question 42Ask the type of fuel that the household uses for cooking, heat and providing hot water separately. In each case, if the answer matches one of the predicted fuel types, mark the box; otherwise, mark the box for "Other" fuels.
If the household does not use any fuels to provide heat, mark "None" in the linked column.
Note that solid fuel means: firewood, charcoal, coal, animal waste and botanical waste (thorns and shavings, remaining or harvested cereal, etc.)
If the household uses several types of fuel for cooking, heat and hot water, consider the one they use the most in each case and only mark one of the boxes. For example, for a household who usually uses liquid gas and sometimes electricity for cooking, and often uses kerosene to provide heat and hot water, consider liquid gas as the consumed fuel for cooking and kerosene for heat and hot water.
33. Main water supply used by household, Question 43Ask where the water is usually supplied for drinking, cooking and other uses. If the answer matches one of the stated sources, mark the relevant box, otherwise mark "Other".

- If the water for drinking, cooking or other uses is supplied from different sources, identify just the major one in each case and mark only one box. Note the following in filling out this question:
- In case the water used by the household is supplied from "Public water network in the city/village," mark each of the three relevant boxes, not considering where the network's water is supplied from and also not considering the access mode to the network (in- or outside of the unit).
- If the water used by the household is supplied from a well, spring, aqueduct or water reservoir, based on the improvements on sources, mark the relevant box. Improvements mean the actions taken in order to preserve or improve water quality in each of the mentioned sources; such as repairing the inside of a well or aqueduct, cleaning the connected streams and other necessary actions to prevent any pollutions or water filtration.
- If for any reason the water is supplied from a water tank (fixed or mobile), mark "water tank", not considering where the source of the tank's water is.
- Packed water means different kinds of packaging for water, such as bottle or gallon that the household usually uses for drinking or cooking.
- In some cities/villages, the water from the public network is sold after actions for filtration and taste improvements. If the household uses this type of water, mark "Public water network in city/village" in the linked box.

34. Type of housing unit, Question 44Identify the type of the household's unit and mark one of the 1 to 5 boxes. The housing unit is where one or more members of the household live in at enumeration time and you have recorded its number on the inventory sheet, in column 4 or columns 4 and 5.
[] 1, Conventional residential unit: those units made of hard materials (brick, steel, concrete, stone, wood, etc.) like normal houses, apartments, etc., are considered as conventional residential units and mark box 1 for it.
[] 2, Tent: a tent is usually made of woolen, cotton, nylon, canvas or similar textiles and is set up with the help of wooden or steel rolling pins and ropes. For households who live in a tent at the time of enumeration, mark box 2.
[] 3, Lodge: a lodge is made of mat and sometimes with clay or brick. For households living in a lodge, mark box 3.
[] 4, Hut, slum, or similar constructions: for those households living in or around a city in units bungled with material such as tin, nylon, canvas and is known as a hut, mark code 4. Some households live in places dogged in hills and not many materials have been used in their structures. For these households, whose units are known as slums, and also for those households who live in places such as caves, boughs, etc., also mark this option.
Other: usually it is expected that any unit will be categorized as one of the above, but it is possible to observe some households whose housing units do not match with any of the choices mentioned above, like those households living in motels, hotels, caravans, etc., and do not have any other place. For these households, mark box 5.
Note that some households live at the work place and do not have a separate place to live in. Also mark box 5 for these households, like shop boys who sleep at the store.
For those construction workers who live in the constructing or destructing building, or temporary places in the work location, mark box 5.
35. General explanation about Questions 45 through 55Fill these questions only for those households who live in a conventional residential unit (box 1 question 44) and leave it blank for households living in other types of units.
36. Number of rooms available to the household, Question 45A room is a closed roofed space with at least an area of 4 square meters and a height of 2 meters. The living room, kitchen, storage, etc. are considered as rooms if they meet the required dimensions of 4 square meters area and 2 meters height. Spaces like the garage, bathrooms, toilets, stables, etc. are not considered as rooms.
Based on the given definition, ask the number of rooms available to the household in the conventional residential unit and write it as a two-digit number.

- In cases where there is more than one household living in one housing unit, only write the number of rooms that the respondent household possesses. If there is a common room used by different households, do not consider it as a room for any of the households.
- In cases that the household does not possess a room separately, write "--".

37. Type of tenure of the housing unit, Question 46Identify the type of tenure based on the following definitions and mark one of the 1 to 5 boxes; otherwise mark "Other".
[] 1, Owned land and building: for those households who own the land and the building of their place of residence, mark box 1. Households living in their own condo are also usually a shareholder of the land. Mark box 1 for these households also.
[] 2, Owned building: for those households who only own the building they live in but not the land, mark box 2. An endowed residence is also in this group.
[] 3, Rented: for those households who have rented their place of residence and pay rent, mark box 3. The rent can be in the form of money or not. Also, the occupancy of the unit can be based on mortgage or based on rent plus deposit, in which cases you should mark box 3.
[] 4, Against service: for those households who possess their place of residence in exchange for the work of one or more members of the household, even if they pay a monthly amount, mark box 4. Institutional housings of government or private sector employees are considered in this group.
[] 5, Rent-free: for those households who possess their place of residence for free and do not make any payments (money or service) for it, like those households who get their housing unit from charity institutes, foundations or other households, mark box 5.
[] 6, Other: if the type of tenure of the housing unit does not match any of the above mentioned, mark box 6.

- Note that in identifying the type of tenure, it does not make any difference whether the household holds the place of residence officially (registry office) or unofficially; like a household who has rented their place, whether or not the lease is official or unofficial, the type of tenure is "Rented".

38. Facilities and utilities, Question 47Different types of facilities and utilities are mentioned in this question. First, ask about the existence of these facilities and utilities in the housing unit and mark either box 1 or 2 in section A. Then, ask about each facility and utility available in the unit (box 1 in section A) separately and whether the household takes advantage of it or not. If yes, mark 1 in section B, otherwise mark 2. For those facilities and utilities not available in the housing unit (box 2 in section A), leave section B blank. Note the following in order to fill this question:

- For electricity, private generators in units are not what is meant, but the electricity available to everyone is.
- For piped water, the important aspect is for the unit to have a pipeline and for the water in the pipeline to be connected to the public water network.
- For piped gas, the important aspect is for the unit to have a pipeline and for the gas in the pipeline to be connected to the public gas network.
- A central heating system, which also includes a package, is a system in which heat is produced in one defined part and is transferred from that point to the entire housing unit.
- A central air conditioning system is a system in which heat or cold air is produced in a specific part and then transferred to the entire housing unit.

Note: for electricity, central heating system, central air conditioning system and bathroom, the point is only to ask for the existence of it.
39. How many households are residing in this housing unit? Question 48To fill this column, write the information in Column 8 of the inventory sheet in the section about the place of residence. If there is only one household living in this unit, mark box 1, and continue to Question 50. But if there are more than one household living in one housing unit, mark box 2, and after writing the number of households, continue to Question 49.
40. Has Form no. 3 been filled out for any household in this housing unit? Question 49Define the status of filling Form no. 3 in the inventory form for those housing units in which more than one household live. In the case that it is necessary to fill Form no. 3 for some of these households, if this household is the first household for which Form no. 3 is being filled out, mark "No" to answer this question and continue to other questions. Otherwise, meaning in cases there has been a Form no. 3 filled out in this housing unit for another household, mark "Yes" in answering this question and write the household's order number from when you filled out the housing information in Form no. 3. (Note that the order number is the number filled in column 12 of the inventory form and then transferred to the household questionnaire.) Then leave Columns 50 to 55 blank and continue to question 56.
41. What is the total number of rooms in this housing unit? Question 50Based on the definition of room, ask the number of rooms available in the housing unit and write the answer in a 2 digit number.

- Note that for those units in which more than one household is living, number of rooms in the unit (question 50) should be more than the number of available rooms for the household (question 45).

42. Housing unit's floor area (square meters), Question 51Housing unit's floor area means the total built area with roof in the housing unit like a room, kitchen, bathroom, toilet, storage, pantry, closet, etc.
In apartment building units, the unit's floor area means the area of the unit excluding the common areas like garage, pilot, corridor, stairs, etc. In these units, all the spaces related to the unit are considered for the floor area, even if they are located outside of it, like storage.
In housing units other than apartments, all the built areas (like the garage, corridor, etc.) are included in the floor area.

- Note in rural areas not to include spaces in the household's place of residence that are related to farming activities and animal husbandry like stables in the floor area.

Ask the floor area in square meters and mark the relevant box. For example, if the unit is 49 square meters, mark box 1, and if the floor area is 105 square meters, mark box 5. If the respondent is not aware of the floor area, with his help and the geometric shape and dimensions of rooms and other parts of the unit, try to calculate the floor area and mark the appropriate box.
43. Type of housing unit's framework, Question 52Ask the type of the structure of the building and mark the proper box. If the respondent is not able to identify the type of structure, help them with the following comments:
A unit's framework/structure is the joint complex (bases and columns and beams, etc.) that holds the housing unit.
In this census, the structures are categorized as follow:
[] 10, Metal: if the framework is set with iron beams, mark box 1. In this type, the beams are jointed and make an integrated framework which holds the weight of the structure.
Some visual features of a building with metal framework are as follows:

- In buildings with four or fewer stories, if the columns in the lower levels are visible, their width and length are usually less than 40 centimeters.
- In cases that some iron beams have been used in an "X" or "V" shape in side walls to improve the building against earthquake, it is usually visible in the walls.
- In cases that metal plates have been used in the joints of columns and beams to improve the frame, the signs are visible in the ceiling.
[] 20, Armed concrete: if the framework is made of armed concrete (concrete with reinforcement and bars) and is holding the weight of the structure, mark box 2. The most important features of an armed concrete frame are as follows:

- If the columns are visible, their length and width in lower levels are usually 40 centimeters and more.
- In 3 stories and more buildings, in the ground or lower levels, main beams are visible in the form of an exertion lower than the ceiling.
[] 30, Other: if the framework does not match the above mentioned ones, mark box 3, such as for buildings with a ceiling where metal has been used and has porter walls. In such buildings:

- The exertions usually seen in columns in buildings with metal and concrete framework do not exist.
- The walls are usually thicker compared to the buildings with metal or concrete framework.
44. Principle construction materials used in the housing unit, Question 53
Fill this column only for the units for which you marked box 3 (other) in question 52 and leave it blank for other housing units. Ask the principle materials used in building walls and the ceiling of the housing unit and identify its type based on the following comments, marking one of the 1 to 8 boxes.
[] 31, Brick and iron, or stone and iron: in buildings made of brick and iron or stone and iron, the ceiling is made of iron beams and brick and the walls are made of brick or stone. The walls (instead of the metal columns in metal framed buildings) hold the weight of the structure. Therefore, these buildings are also called iron and brick (barrel vault) or stone and brick with porter walls. The walls are usually thicker than that of metal framed buildings.
[] 32, Brick and wood, or stone and wood: in buildings made of brick and wood or stone and wood, the ceiling is made of wood, lumber and brick, and the porter walls are of brick or stone. Therefore the weight of the ceiling transfers to the walls through the joints of columns and walls and the walls hold the weight of the building.
[] 33, Concrete blocks (with any type of ceiling): in these structures, concrete blocks are used in the walls. In the ceiling, joist or wood is used.
[] 34, Bricks only or stone and brick: in the walls and ceiling of these structures, brick or stone and brick are mainly used. The ceiling is built in a manner that enables it to not use iron beams or wood like domes.
[] 35, Wood only: in these structures which are more popular in humid areas, wood is largely used.
[] 36, Sun-dried brick and wood: the main material used in this kind of building is sun-dried brick. In these structures, sun-dried bricks and wood are used in the ceiling and sun-dried bricks or sun-dried bricks and wood together are used in the walls.
[] 37, Sun-dried brick and clay: these structures are mostly built by sun-dried bricks and the clay is used to keep the bricks together.
[] 38, Other: if the main material used in the building is none of the above mentioned, mark box 8.
Note: The materials used for the finished look of the building are not considered as the main material.

- For those buildings in which the main materials are different in different parts, fill this question for the part that includes a greater area.

45. The year when the construction of the housing unit was completed, Question 54Ask about the year when the construction of the unit was completed and identify the situation by marking one of the 1 to 15 boxes. For instance, if the construction was completed in year 1385 (2006), mark box 1 and if it was completed in 1366 (1987), mark box 12.

- If the construction is yet to be finished but the building is in use by a household at the time of enumeration, consider the year of exploitation as the year when construction was finished.
- It is possible that the housing unit was finished in a certain year and some parts have been added to it in later years. Then consider the year in which the main unit was completed as the answer.

46. Place of sewage disposal for the housing unit, Question 55In this question, sewage means the wastewater from the water used in the housing unit. Based on the following explanations, ask the place of sewage disposal of the housing unit, separated by wastewater related to bathroom, kitchen, etc. and if the answer matches one of the 1 to 5 options, mark the proper box, otherwise mark box 6.
[] 1, Public sewage network: for those housing units where the sewage is connected to that of the city or village, mark box 1.
In recent years, the department of energy (water and sewage companies) has started building a public sewage network and selling branching. In these areas, all or part of the housing units' sewage enters the public network and gets disposed.
Note that only buying a sewage branching by the household or the households residing in the housing unit does not mean that the unit's sewage is connected to the public sewage network; more detail is needed.
[] 2, Private network: for those housing units where the sewage is connected to the private network, meaning the network of a town, apartment complex and similar, and gets disposed this way, mark box 2. Note that these networks, which might also have a refinery, are created by the developers of the town, complex, etc., and are often not under the surveillance of water and sewage companies.
[] 3, Absorbing well: all or part of most of the housing units' sewage, especially in urbanized areas, are disposed through some wells that have been dug during building construction and are known as absorbing wells. Mark box 3 for these units.
[] 4, Specific sewage tank (septic tank): in some housing units in urbanized areas which are often located in high-rises and skyscrapers, the sewage gets disposed through entering a specific tank designed for this matter which is known as a septic tank. These tanks are used in the buildings with or without drainage and are dischargeable. Mark box 4 for these units.
[] 5, Area around the unit: in some housing units, sewage exits the unit and enters the surrounded areas, runs on the surface of alleys, streets, water courses, streams, river, lands, farms, etc. and gets disposed. Mark box 5 for these kinds of units.
[] 6, Other: for those housing units in which the manner of sewage disposal is none of the above mentioned, mark box 6.
Note: in this question you should mark a box (related to the main part of the unit's sewage) for each kind of wastewater.
