Instructions

On taking the first national population census
of the Kyrgyz Republic of 1999
and completing census documents

Bishkek - 1998

[Table of contents omitted]

I. General

1. The population census in the Kyrgyz Republic is to be taken from 24 through 31 March 1999. The completion of the census documents is to start at 8 a.m. on March 24 and continue for 8 days (through March 31). The census moment is 12 o'clock or midnight on the night of March 23 to March 24. The census documents are not to include children born after the census moment and persons who died before this moment.

2. The census is to be carried out by enumerators through visitation of all premises located in the territory of their enumeration districts, where people live or may live, including premises occupied by organizations, enterprises or institutions.

3. The census documents are to be completed by enumerators by means of canvassing people without requirement of any documents from them.

4. In each dwelling, all residents as of 12 o'clock on the night of March 23 to 24 are to be enumerated, including those temporarily living and temporarily absent (The list of the population categories related to those temporarily absent and temporarily living is given in items 22-25 of the Instructions.).

In this context, the lists of residents in dwelling and enumeration forms are to cover all persons permanently (usually) living in this dwelling, including those temporarily absent and temporary residents (those on visit) in this dwelling who permanently live outside this settlement.

People are to be recorded in the lists of resident in dwelling and enumeration forms irrespective of the registration available and its character (permanent or temporary) and of the right to housing space in this or other place (e.g. if a person is registered at one address, but actually lives at another, he/she is to be enumerated at the place of his/her actual residence).

5. Explanations of the procedure of enumeration of selected population categories are furnished further in these Instructions.

Students of higher and secondary specialized educational establishments, as well as pupils of vocational-technical schools living at the place of training are to be counted at that settlement, but not at home.

Compulsory-duty servicemen under conscription or contract are to be counted in military units at the place of their service.

Military servicemen (offices, warrant offices, extended service-men, contract soldiers, and female soldiers), manual and office workers of military units and members of their households living outside closed territories, are to be enumerated at the place of their permanent (usual) residence by state statistical authorities in accordance with the usual procedure. The way of answering questions 14, 15 and 16 of the enumeration form is to be established by the headquarters of those military units.

Citizens of Kyrgyzstan working in diplomatic, trade or other representations of the Kyrgyz Republic abroad and also their household members living with them are to be enumerated by representations and consulates at the direction of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kyrgyz Republic. These persons are not to be entered in the census documents at their permanent place of residence in Kyrgyzstan.

Persons who went abroad for the period over one month, but less than one year for work under contract, business trip, training, recreation or to visit their relatives or friends are to be enumerated at places of their permanent residence in Kyrgyzstan as permanent residents without a note of temporary absence. In case of their application to the representations and consulates of the Kyrgyz Republic abroad, control forms are to be made for them and forwarded to the place of their residence in Kyrgyzstan.

Persons in institutions of confinement are to be enumerated at the place of their location, but not at home. At the permanent place of residence enumerated are only persons imprisoned before trial, as well as those arrested subject to administrative procedure for the period of up to 30 days.

6. When interviewing residents in a given dwelling, the enumerator must find out if any of household members has other place of residence (other than cases listed above). If yes, the enumerator is to determine where this person should be enumerated. In choosing the place of enumeration the preference is to be given to the place where the person's household lives. For instance:

- If a person questioned has a flat (house or room) where he is registered, but actually lives with his family in another place (e.g. in a flat owned by his spouse) he is to be enumerated in the place where his family lives.
- If a person questioned lives in a hostel at the place of his work and at weekends or on off days comes to his family, which lives in the other settlement, this person is to be enumerated in the place where his family lives.

The same method is to be used to enumerate persons working on a rotational basis.

7. Foreign citizens permanently living in Kyrgyzstan (i.e. citizens of foreign states) and stateless persons are to be counted at the place of their residence in accordance with the usual procedure.

8. Citizens who arrived in the Kyrgyz Republic from foreign countries (CIS countries inclusive) for permanent residence, but have not received a permission to reside yet are to be enumerated as permanent residents in Kyrgyzstan at the place where they were caught by the census.

9. Foreign citizens who at the census moment are temporary residents in the territory of Kyrgyzstan, but permanently live abroad (including CIS and non-CIS countries) are also subject to enumeration in accordance with the procedure described in section V of the Instructions:

- those who arrived in Kyrgyzstan on a delegation, for training, work or tourism;
- transit migrants;
- persons seeking for asylum.

10. Population without permanent place of residence (e.g. homeless, tramps, persons moving from one permanent place of residence to another) should to be enumerated where found by the census.

11. If during the interview any of residents appears absent, the enumerator may record his data obtained from other household members in case they are able to provide irrefragable answers to all questions of the census documents. If household members are not able to provide necessary data on the absentee, the enumerator is to enter in the List of residents and relevant enumeration form the family name, first name and patronymic of the absentee in order to question him/her personally while revisiting.

Control measures

12. For all temporary residents in a given dwelling or those having more than one place of residence control forms are to be made and a certificate of enumeration to be issued.
The control forms are to be made for all temporary residents in a given dwelling who were here on the night of March 23 to 24, except for temporary residents in the territory of Kyrgyzstan who live permanently abroad. For temporary residents who arrived at this dwelling after the census moment a control form is to be only made if they declare that nobody at their place of residence is able to provide data on them to the census staff.
Examples:

?) Ibraev M.I. permanently lives in the city of Kant, but from March 20 to 30 was on a business trip in the city of Talas where met the enumerator, but failed to present a certificate of enumeration. The enumerator of Talas is to enter Ibraev in the List of residents in dwelling, complete an enumeration form for him with the mark of temporary residence and a control form, and also issue a certificate of enumeration. In the control form the enumerator is to specify the address of making the control form in the city of Talas and complete questions 1-14.
In question 1 the exact address of the permanent place of residence is to be entered and answers to questions from 2 to 14 are to be recorded like in the enumeration form. At the end of the control form, the detailed address where the person should have been enumerated as a permanent resident (without any mark of temporary residence) or as a temporary resident is to be indicated.

b) Sydykov B.T. lives alone in the city of Sulyukt, but on March 28 he came on a visit to the city of Kant where he met the enumerator. Sydykov declared that in the city of Sulyukt nobody is able to provide data on him. The enumerator of the city of Kant is to make a control form for Sydykov completing all questions and specifying the address of making the control form in the city of Kant and the address of his permanent place of residence in the city of Sulyukt. Because nobody in the city of Sulyukt is able to provide data on Sydykov, the enumerator is to complete for him a List of residents and an enumeration form. Later these documents will be sent to the city of Sulyukt. In the city of Kant, Sydykov should not be entered in the List of residents and the enumeration form should not be completed for him because at the moment of census he was in the city of Sulyukt.

13. If the enumerator meets a person with more than one places of residence and after choosing the place of enumeration the other address is chosen, the enumerator is to make a control form for this person in case he/she does not have a certificate of enumeration.

Example:
Toktorbaev S.T. lives at the place of his work in the city of Shopokov, but has a household (wife and children) living in the city of Kant. Usually Toktorbaev visits his family at weekends. On March 28 the enumerator of the city of Shopokov met Toktorbaev. After the enumerator has found out that Toktorbaev has another place of residence and is going to undergo enumeration in the city of Kant, the enumerator is to make a control form for him. In the city of Shopokov, a List of residents and enumeration form for Toktorbaev are not to be completed.

If the enumerator meets a person with more than one places of residence and after choosing the place of enumeration this address is chosen, the enumerator is to include the person in the List of residents, complete an enumeration form for him/her and issue a certificate of enumeration to be presented to the enumerator in the other place of residence.

Example:
Saliev K.S. is registered at the address: city of Kant, av. Chui, building 20, flat 5, but actually lives with his household (wife, son, and mother-in-law) in the house owned by his mother-in-law at the address: village of Norus, Ghandi str., house 15. The enumerator of Ghandi street, having found out that Saliev has another place of residence, but usually lives here in his household and should be enumerated here, is to enter him in the List of residents, complete an enumeration form for him and make a control form. In the control form the address where it was made is to be specified: 15, Ghandi street and then the address where Saliev has the second place of residence and where he is to be included in the census documents: the address in the city of Kant. In addition, the enumerator is to issue a certificate of enumeration to him.

When completed, the control forms are to be given to the instructor-supervisor. Later these forms will be used to check if the persons in question have been enumerated in the place of their permanent (usual) residence. Control forms are numbered in succession within the enumeration district as they are completed. The enumerator is to indicate in his notebook the number of control forms made for a given dwelling.

14. Certificates of enumeration are also to be issued to those leading a nomad existence or having no permanent place of residence (homeless, tramps, those moving from one permanent place of residence to another if the census found them on the way). A certificate of enumeration is also to be issued to persons intending in the period of census and control visitation, i.e. from March 24 through April 5, to leave for another place at least for one day.

15. After the end of the census a selective control visitation is to be carried out. In urban settlements and rural areas, the control visitation should be conducted in all enumeration districts with the 10% coverage of dwellings. It is done in order to check if there were omissions or double entries in the enumeration and if the records of temporary residence or temporary absence were correct.
The control visitation is to be carried out by the instructor-supervisor together with the enumerator in the period from April 1 through 5, 1999.

In dwellings subject to the control visitation, the instructor-supervisor (or the enumerator) is to check if all persons were enumerated, including those who arrived after March 24.
The enumerator is to clear up where all persons, both permanent and temporary residents, were on the night of March 23 to 24.

Persons subject to enumeration in this dwelling, but omitted by the enumerator are to be entered by the instructor-supervisor (or by the enumerator) in the census documents: lists of residents and enumeration forms. In the control visitation necessary control forms which were not completed in duly course are also to be made.

Requirements to completing census documents

16. Answers in the census documents are to be recorded either in words or numbers or by circling relevant codes of prompts provided.

The List of residents in dwelling and their housing conditions (Form 1) and Enumeration form (Form 2) are to be completed in Kyrgyz or Russian. The enumeration form is to only contain data for one person questioned.

II. Directions for completing the lists of residents in dwelling and their housing conditions (Form 1)

17. Before completing the enumeration forms in each dwelling the enumerator is to clear up how many households live therein and enter the names of all persons to be enumerated in this dwelling in the List of residents in dwelling and their housing conditions (Form 1).
The household is considered as:

- one person occupying a separate dwelling or part of dwelling and providing himself (herself) with everything needed for life and not pooling his (her) resources with any other residents in this dwelling to jointly keep the house;
- two or more persons occupying a separate dwelling or part thereof or several dwelling rooms and providing themselves with everything needed for life jointly keeping the house, i.e. fully or partially pooling their individual budgets for common expenditures. These persons may or may not be related to each other by blood or marriage.
In this connection, the following is to be taken into account:
- persons renting dwelling from individuals are not included in the household of the owner of dwelling and are considered as separate households;
- persons permanently living in hostels of workers, clerks, students or pupils, as well as in hotels and boarding houses are considered as separate households;
- persons working as service staff and living in institutions where they work (e.g. infant houses, children's homes, hospitals for chronics, etc.) are to be enumerated as separate households;

18. A separate List is to be made for:

- each flat;
- each house (if it comprises one flat), yurt, tent, lodge or other one-flat building;
- each room in a hostel (other than flat-type hostels where Lists are to be made for each flat);
- a ward, class, room, department, etc. in infant houses, children's homes, boarding schools for orphan children and children left without parental care, boarding houses for the aged and disabled, hospitals, hotels and other similar institutions (depending on the way of keeping records at relevant institutions).

19. The Lists are to be numbered in succession within the enumeration district, the number of the List for each dwelling being specified in the Enumerator's notebook. The enumerator is to record the address of the dwelling and enter relevant requisites: numbers of census division, instructor district, and enumeration district. If the List is made at an institution, the name of the institution is to be entered in the line "institution" of the address section, e.g., boarding school, boarding house for war and labour veterans, hotel, etc.

If the number of inhabitants of a given dwelling exceeds 12 persons, then two or more Lists with the same number are to be made, in which case the letter "a" is to be entered after the number in the first List, the letter "b" in the second one, etc (e.g., 15?, 15b, 15c). The address section and requisites are to be completed in all Lists.

Residents in dwelling are to be recorded by households. If several households live in a dwelling, first all members of one household are to be recorded and then all members of the other household, etc.

20. Within each household one of the adult household members is to be recorded as person 1. Then all other household members are recorded, in which case the following order is to be observed:

In this connection, it should be noted that residential houses (flats) adapted for production premises (offices, stores, workshops, warehouses, shop floors, and other non-residential premises) are not included in the number of residential houses or flats.

Question 5p. The number of occupied living rooms
Completing this question, the enumerator is to enter in a specially dedicated box the number (e.g. 1, 2, 3, etc.) of living rooms occupied by the household.

In this connection, it should be noted that the living room is a premise intended for residence: part of a residential flat (hostel) separated from other premises (rooms) by partitions.

Attics, mezzanines, heated terraces and verandahs equipped for habitation the year round are to be included in the number of living rooms.

The number of living rooms does not cover: kitchens, halls, corridors, bath (or shower) rooms, storerooms, balconies, loggias, and other subsidiary premises.

If a household does not occupy the whole room, but only its part, code 99 "part of room" is to be marked.

If a household occupies two or more rooms, but some of those gives in rent, the total number of living rooms (including those rented) is to be recorded.

If a household rents living space, also the actual number of rooms or "part of room" (code 99) occupied is to be marked.

Question 6p. Floor space of the dwelling occupied (sq. m)
Completing the answer to this question, the enumerator is to record in a special box in integer numbers (without decimal digits) the number of square meters of useful and living floor space occupied by the household.

To round fractional space to integer numbers the following rules are to be observed: if there are five or more tenths after the decimal sign, then one is to be added to the integer part, if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded. (e.g., numbers 23.50 or 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23).

Useful floor space in a detached house, separate or common (communal) flat is determined as the sum of floor areas of all living rooms (including heated and appropriate for habitation attics, verandahs, terraces) and back rooms (kitchens, halls, anterooms, indoor corridors, bath (shower) rooms, toilets, pantries or built-in closets).
Herewith in common (communal) flats the useful space of the whole flat is by convention to be only recorded for one household, which is specified first within this flat.

Useful floor space falling on residents in hostels is measured as the sum of the living space occupied by a household and its share of the back rooms space of the hostel. This part is calculated for one person by dividing the whole space of backrooms of the hostel by the number of beds. E.g., the floor space of backrooms in a hostel is 500 sq. m. and the number of beds is 100. In this case the share of the backroom space for one person is 5 sq. m.

The useful floor space does not include:

  • staircases, porches, lift lobbies, vestibules, corridors (excluding inner corridors), entrance halls;
  • built-on unheated rooms (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);
  • detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.
Living floor space includes the space of all living rooms occupied by a household excluding the space of built-in closets.

If a household occupies part of room, the space of this part is to be recorded (e.g., if the room is 24 sq. m in area and is occupied by two households consisting of 1 person and two persons, then 8 sq. m and 16 sq. m fall on each household respectively).

If a household gives part of the space occupied in rent, the total space, both useful and living, including that rented, is to be recorded for it.

If a household rents dwelling, the enumerator is also to record for it the actually occupied useful and living space.

Question 7p. Availability of telephone
For households living in a detached house, separate or common (communal) flat the code corresponding to one of prompts given is to be circled.

If a telephone set for personal or common use is installed within an individual house, separate or common (communal) flat, code 1 "Yes" is to be circled. If a coupled telephone or radiotelephone is available, also code 1 "Yes" is to be circled. In all other cases code 2 "No" is to be marked.

IV. Directions for completing answers to questions 1 - 18 of the Enumeration form (Form 2)

For each person recorded in section I of the List of residents in dwelling (Form 1) a separate enumeration form is to be completed. If a household consists of one, two, three or more persons, accordingly one, two, three or more enumeration forms are to be completed.

For persons who are temporary residents in a given dwelling, i.e. for whom in columns 6 and 7 of the List of residents in dwelling the address of their permanent place of residence and duration of their absence from it are recorded and in question 3 of the enumeration form code 2 "temporary resident" is circled, questions 9 and 15-18 are not to be completed.

Before completing the enumeration form the enumerator is to complete the boxes in the left upper corner: No. of census division, No. of instructor district, No. of enumeration district, as well as No. of the List of residents in dwelling and serial number of the person within the dwelling as indicated in column 1 of section 1 of the List of residents in dwelling (Form 1). The enumerator is not to specify No. of the Enumeration form.

Question 1. Relationship to the person recorded first in household
The code is to be circled which corresponds to one of the prompts given.

For the household member specified first within the household code 1 "person recorded first" is to be marked.
For all other household members corresponding codes are to be marked. For example, if a person questioned is a son of the first person, code 3 corresponding to the prompt "daughter, son" is to be marked. If a person questioned has kinship or in-law relationship to the person recorded first which is different from those listed (e.g., nephew), code 10 corresponding to the prompt "other relation degree" is be marked.

If a household comprises one person, only code 1 "person recorded first" is to be circled.
Persons who are included in a given household, but are not related to any household member either by blood or by law (e.g., nanny or servant living in the household and contributing to it) are to be marked with code 11 "non-relative".

Code 11 "non-relative" is also marked for persons (other than person 1) permanently living in a collective household, excluding those related to each other by blood or law (e.g., husband and wife in a boarding house for the aged or invalids or brother and sister in a children's home) who are to be recorded according to the procedure mentioned above.

For each household member (regardless of the age and marital status) living in the same household with both parents or one of them, the serial number assigned to his (her) mother (related by blood or not) within the dwelling, i.e. the number indicated against her name in column 1 of the List of residents in dwelling is to be recorded. If there is no mother in the household, the number of father is to be entered. If there is neither mother nor father within the household, no number is to be recorded.

For temporary residents in question 1 code 1 "person recorded first" is to be circled, irrespective of the relation degree to permanent residents in this dwelling.

For children who can not speak yet and other young children the mother tongue is to be determined by their parents. If parents find difficulty in determining the mother tongue of their child, the language usually spoken in the household is to be recorded.

The mother tongue of those deaf and dumb is considered the language in which they read and write or the language used by the members of their household or persons they mainly speak to at home.

After the mother tongue of the person questioned has been entered, for persons having a perfect command of other languages, i.e. being able to read, write and fluently speak in these languages, the names of those language are to be recorded accordingly (e.g., Ukrainian, English, Spanish, Russian, etc.)
