[p.1]

What is the Census of Population and Dwelling?

The Census of Population and Dwelling is a counting of all of the persons who normally live in the country and the dwellings that they occupy.

With the census information, it is possible to know:

-How many men and women normally live in Mexico and their ages.
-How many know how to read and write.
-How many work and what they do at their jobs.

In addition, the census information permits analysis of the principal problems that affect the population, for example, the dwelling needs, water, electricity, schools, ...

Who is in charge of preparing the census?

INEGI, the National Statistics, Geography, and Informatics Institute is responsible for carrying out this activity.

[p.2]

The population and its participation in the census

All of the persons who normally live in the national territory participate in the census, either as numerators, collecting the information in the questionnaires, or as informants, providing the data that is requested.

Article 5 of the Political Constitution of the United States of Mexico, the articles 38, 39, 42, 48, 49, 51, and additional applicable laws of the Law of Statistical and Geographical Information and the Presidential Decree issued on July 28, 1989, point to the importance of participating in the census.

When will the Population and Dwelling Census occur?

The XI General Census of Population and Dwelling will be carried out from March 12 to March 16, 1990. Traditionally, the census is completed every ten years in Mexico.

The census data is confidential

The persons who intervene in the census are obligated, by law, to maintain strict confidentiality of the individual information, which means, they should not communicate the details that they obtain to other persons; in fact, the information is only published globally, without referring to any persons in individual form.

The names of the persons are requested only so that the enumerator can identify the person about whom he/she is requesting information. The details obtained by the enumerators is stored in large computers, in which the information is tabulated for publication.

[Illustration is suppressed]
[p.3]

What is your work as an enumerator?

You are the person who has been chosen to be the enumerator to carry out the most important activity of the census, which consists of obtaining the census data. For this reason, a large part of the success of the census depends on your work.

This manual contains explanations that will permit you to do your job correctly; study it well and carry it with you when you do the interviews; if you have any doubts, look to this manual; its contents are complemented by the instructions that you will be given in the training course.

[p.4]

What are we taking a census of?

We are taking a census of all of the occupied dwellings and the persons who normally live in them; for this reason, you should always be aware that a dwelling is:

A place that commonly formed by walls and roofs in where one or more persons normally live, which means that it is where they sleep, prepare their foods, and are protected from the elements.

For the purpose of the census, the dwelling should have an independent entrance from the street, a passageway, patio, hallway, or garden; this means that the persons who normally live in the dwelling can enter and leave without passing through the rooms of another dwelling.

In this property there are two dwellings; both have independent entrances from the patio; therefore, you should use one questionnaire for each of them.

In this property, there is only one dwelling. Observe that to enter the back room, you must cross through one of the rooms of the dwelling. In this case, you should use only one questionnaire.

[p.5]

How are we taking a census?

The enumerator and his/her responsibility in the census

To carry out your job correctly, it is necessary that you follow the instructions that follow:

A) Attend the training course that will be given on March 5, 6, and 7, 1990.

B) Between March 12 and March 16, 1990, visit all of the dwellings that are in the area that you are assigned.

C) Complete all of the interviews, writing the characteristics of the dwellings on the questionnaires and the information about all of the persons who normally live in the dwelling.

D) Follow all of the instructions that you are given by your enumerator leader, for the reception and turning in the work material, which consists of: Enumerator Manual, "Census" labels, sheet of "Dwellings that are pending and recovered" (LC-01), citation forms, pamphlets of "Orientation for informants", pencil, eraser, and pencil sharpener.

E) Visit all of the dwellings that have not been censused between March 19 and March 29 and complete the corresponding interviews.

Work area assignments

On March 9, at 8:30 in the morning, you should go to the Basic Geostatistics Area Supervision (RAGEB) to get your area assignment, which means, the place where the dwellings that you will interview for the census are located, and you will be given your credential which identifies you as an enumerator.

Characteristics of the work areas

Your work area can be in an urban zone or in a rural zone; this will be determined by your Enumerator Supervisor. Follow the following instructions based on your case.

If your area is in an urban zone, be aware that you could have one or various blocks, one street on a block, or a building.

If your work area is in a rural zone, you could be assigned one or more locations, or some dwellings in one location.

Since there are dwellings that are improvised in buildings that were not intended for dwellings, you should ask in stores, schools, workshops, passageways, factories or similar places, if there is a dwelling or if someone normally lives there; if that is the case, you should complete corresponding interview.

Instructions for the enumerator of urban zones

If your job is to enumerate an urban zone, draw a map of the block or blocks, street or building that you will census on the blank page that you will find at the end of this census manual, called "Map of Urban Work Area." This map should be copied on to the general map that is available in the RAGEB office.

Note on the map, the number of the block or blocks that correspond to your work area and the name of the streets, including the nearby streets around your area. Indicate the most important reference points that will help locate your area properly; indicate North, the name of the colony, any church, school, market, or anything that is easy to find.

After you have finished drawing your map, you will go with the Enumerator Supervisor to your work area; you will do an overview tour of your area to verify that your map is drawn correctly. During this tour, you will distribute a copy of the "Orientation for the Informant" pamphlet that your Enumerator Supervisor will provide for each of the dwellings.

The Enumerator Supervisor will indicate, during field run, the place where your work area begins and ends, as well as the order you should follow for the interviews.

[Illustration text]
Drawing of the urban work area
[End of illustration]

When you arrive in your work area, follow these instructions:

With the help of the map, find your location in the area and make it coincide with North and with the street that you are standing on. The streets that are on the right side of the map should be on your right side also.

To confirm that you are on your assigned block, identify the reference points; these might be a garden, a church, a school, a hospital, etc., and find them on the map.

After you have identified the block, begin your route walking along the route, clockwise, beginning on the northwest corner.

[End of illustration]

You should walk all of the streets of the block, until you complete the last dwelling of the last street; apply this procedure to all and each of the blocks that make up your work area.

If your work area is only one street, start at the corresponding corner in such a way that the dwellings that you will enumerate are always on your right, as shown in the example:

[Illustration is suppressed]

When you finish the familiarization route, return to the RAGEB office. Once you are there, you will help your enumerator supervisor to complete the questionnaires and the "Dwellings Pending and Recovered" sheets (LC-01), with the following information:

1. Name and code of the state or federal entity
2. Name and code for the municipality or delegation
3. AGEB code
4. Name and code for the location.

The number of the block or blocks that correspond to your work area should be completed as you carry out the interviews; this number will be provided to you by your Enumerator Supervisor.

Instructions for the enumerator of rural zones

If your work area is in a rural zone, your Enumerator Supervisor will give you the names of the locations that you will visit and the corresponding codes, with the approximate travel times to get to your area, and will indicate what transportation means you can use, if necessary. This information should be written on the page titled "Rural work area" that you will find at the end of this manual.

With your Enumerator Supervisor, you will complete the questionnaires and the "Dwellings Pending and Recovered" sheets (LC-01), with the following information:

1. Name and code of the state or federal entity
2. Name and code for the municipality or delegation
3. AGEB code

You will write the name and code for the location as you complete the interviews.

In the rural work areas, you will not do a familiarization route of your work area, which makes it important for you to pay attention to the instructions that you are given by your Enumerator Supervisor, regarding the way to get to the location and how to locate the dwellings. When you arrive at the location, find out where the dwellings are located so that you do not miss any of them.

[Illustration is suppressed here.]

If the location that you are assigned to enumerate has areas that are set up in blocks, begin the interviews with these dwellings, following the procedures established for urban zones and leave the dwellings that are further away for last.

If in your work area you find locations formed by: dwellings located along a road, highway, railway, etc., or on a the bank of a river, oceanfront, or beach; or disperse dwellings, ask your Enumerator Supervisor for necessary instructions to be able to organize your route and be able to visit all of the dwellings, taking care to not omit any of them.

If in your work area the dwellings are far from each other start in the main street of the location, start the interviews in the nearest dwellings and leave the farthest ones for last.

[Illustration]

It is important to take into account that, depending on the characteristics of each rural location, the form of the route can change; your Enumerator Supervisor will explain this to you.

If your Enumerator Supervisor gives you the instructions to stay in a location for more than one day, he will tell you when and where you should report.

General instructions for carrying out the interview

In order to perform the interviews, you must have the following instructions in mind:

-Each time you arrive at a dwelling, request to speak to the head of the family or the group, he housewife or a person who is twelve years old or more. Any of them is considered an adequate informant.

[Illustration text]
Hello child, is the head of the family or your mother here?

No

Is there any person who is twelve years old or more?

No

There is no one?

No
I am alone... "sounds of crying"

[End of illustration]

-Explain the motive of your visit to the informant, supported by what you know about the census and its usefulness. Show your credential that accredits you as an enumerator.

-Always write down what the informant tells you, do not suggest or anticipate the answers.

-Once you complete the interview, stick the 'census' label on the door of the dwelling or in a visible place.

-Starting on March 12, your Enumerator Supervisor will give you the questionnaires, 'census' labels, and "Pending and Recovered Dwellings" forms (LC-01) daily. If you are the enumerator of a rural zone, you will also be given citation forms.

-At the end of your daily work, your will turn in the questionnaires, the sheet for "Pending and Recovered Dwellings" and the remaining 'census' labels to your Enumerator Supervisor and wait for instructions about the work for the next day. If you are the enumerator of a rural zone, you will also turn in the remaining citation forms.
What to do if you cannot do the interview

If in any of the dwellings you do not find a person who can give information, whether it is because the occupants are not at home, because there is no adequate informant, or because they refuse to give you the information, write the address of the dwelling and the reason why you could not complete the interview on your form "Pending and recovered Dwellings". At the end of the day, return to this dwelling and if you are able to complete the interview, write the same date in the corresponding space "date of recovery".

[Illustration is suppressed here.]

If you are not able to complete the interview the same day, begin your route on the next day with the pending dwellings. If by March 16 you have not been able to complete the interview, complete the citation form noting the date, your name, and signature, and leave it at the dwelling. Write in your "Dwellings Pending and Recovered" form (LC-01) the date and the reason why you could not complete the interview. In the rural zones, you should leave the citation on the pending dwellings on the last day that you are in t he location. At the end of this manual, you will find an example of the citation form.

General instructions for managing the questionnaire

To complete the questionnaire correctly, it is important that you remember that:

1. Read the questions from the questionnaire that are written in darker print out loud with clear pronunciation.

2. Follow the instructions carefully for each question in the questionnaire.

3. The questionnaire has enough spaces for the information of ten persons. If any of the dwellings has more than ten persons living in it, use another questionnaire; continue on this second form with the list of persons so that you can obtain the information about all of the persons who normally live in the dwelling.

4. Use pencil to write the information. If you make a mistake, erase carefully and write the correct answer.

5. When you complete the interview, check that the information is complete. If you have missed any questions, ask it at this moment.
The questionnaire that you will receive has the following parts:
-Cover page
-Characteristics of the dwelling
-Number of persons in the dwelling
-Families or groups in the dwelling
-List of persons
-Questions for the persons who normally live in the dwelling.

[p.13]

The dwelling

How to identify it and how to note its characteristics

Location of the dwelling

Before you begin your interviews, check that all of the documents have the following information:

State or Federal Entity State of Mexico [15]
Municipality or delegation Village of Guerrero [113]
AGEB code 009 - 1
Page in the package _ _ _
Page of the dwelling _ _
Location Zacango [ 0031 ]
Block number _ _ _

Do not fill in the spaces for "Page of the Package" and "Page of the Dwelling."

Identify all of your questionnaires by writing your complete name and the name of you Enumerator Supervisor on them.

Name of the Enumerator Supervisor Raul Perez Lopez
Name of the enumerator Pablo Solis Gomez

When you arrive at the dwelling and after introducing yourself, ask the informant for the address of the dwelling: name of the street, exterior number and interior number. If the dwelling does not have a number, write S/N [no number] in the corresponding space.

If the dwelling in on a street that does not have a name or a number, ask the informant for the name of the head of household (male or female), write the name in the space that corresponds to the address and then write known address.

Address of the dwelling
Arturo Fernandez (known address)
Street, avenue, alleyway, highway, road

Identification of the number of dwellings on a property

It is very important that you be sure that all of the dwellings in your work area and all of the persons who live in the dwellings should be counted in the census, but ask the following question before you begin the interview:

Identification of the dwelling
Ask:
How many dwellings are there in this lot or land?

It is necessary that you find out how many dwellings are in the lot or land, since in many cases, there will be more than one and it cannot be seen from the street.

[Illustration is suppressed here.]

In this case, you will use one questionnaire for each dwelling.

Type of dwelling

This part of the cover page should be completed only by what you observe, so it is important that you are aware of the characteristics of the different types of dwelling.

Single house

The single house is a dwelling with independent access from the street or field that does not share walls, roof, nor floors with another dwelling.

For the purpose of he census, houses build of discarded materials are considered single houses.

The dwellings that are found in buildings not intended for habitation, like: lighthouses, warehouses, workshops, factories, schools, stores or similar, are single houses.

Apartment in a building or house in a community

This type of dwelling forms part of a set of dwellings that share at least one wall, roof, or floor.

Rental room [room on a rooftop]

[Illustration]
The woman from number 6 rents us the room.
[End of illustration]
The rental rooms [rooms on a rooftop] are only considered dwellings when they are rented or loaned to a family or group of persons.

Mobile dwelling

The mobile dwellings can be: trailers, mobile homes, tents, tarps, boats, railway cars, and other similar dwellings.

Refuge [shelter]

This is an improvised dwelling in places like: caves, bridges, drain pipes, kiosks and other similar dwellings. If you have to take a census in this type of dwelling, do not ask about its characteristics.

Characteristics of the dwelling

The series of questions found on page two of the questionnaire will permit you to find out the principal characteristics of the dwellings: the materials that they are made out of, the number of rooms that the dwelling consists of and the use the rooms are given, the available services, ownership of the dwelling and the cooking fuel that they use.

1. Walls and 2. Roofs

In these questions, what is important is to know the foundational construction materials, so you should pay attention that the answer given by the informant does not correspond to the material that covers the walls. If the roof or walls of the dwelling are built with more than one material, you should note only the most dominant.

3. Floors

In this case, we are interesting in the materials that cover the floor of the dwelling.

4. Number of rooms

A room in a space inside the dwelling that is separated by permanent walls of any material. Remember that you should always ask two questions:

With the first question, you will know how many rooms are used as bedrooms.

With the second question, you will know how many rooms the dwelling has in total, such as living room, dining room, bedrooms, kitchen, etc. You should not count hallways nor bathrooms as rooms.

5. Kitchen

A dwelling is considered to have a kitchen if there is a room in which they prepare the food.

[Illustration text]
As you see, our house is only one room, we sleep and cook here.
[End of illustration]

6. Toilet

For census purposes, a dwelling has a toilet if it is used only by the occupants of the dwelling. If the toilet is used by persons from different dwellings, such as the case of communities, the dwelling is considered to not have a toilet.

If the dwelling has a toilet and also a water deposit to remove the sewage water, then the toilet is considered to have a water connection.

If the toilet is a sewage hole or a latrine and it is only used by the occupants of the dwelling, then the dwelling is considered to have a toilet, but not a water connection.

7. Piped water

We want to know how the occupants of the dwelling get water. You should read the questions aloud until you get an answer.

[Illustration]
Inside the dwelling? [x] 1
Outside the dwelling, but on the property? [x] 2
From a public faucet or hydrant? [x] 3
No piped water? [x] 4
[End of illustration]

8. Drains

Be aware that a dwelling has a drain if it has a system of pipes through which sewage water is removed.

[Illustration]
Connected to the street sewers? [x] 1
Connected to a septic tank? [x] 2
With a open drain, to a river or lake? [x] 3
Does not have a drain? [x] 4
[End of illustration]

9. Electricity

The electrical light can come from a public network, a private electrical generator, a battery, or other means.

10. Fuel

If the dwelling uses more than one fuel for cooking, mark he one that is used the most frequently.

11. Possession

If the dwelling has a mortgage or it's still being paid for, consider it as owned.

12. Number of persons in the dwelling

The central objective of the census is to count all of the persons who normally live in the country at the moment of the census, and obtain information about their principal characteristics.

Occupants of the dwelling are the persons who normally live in the dwelling.

Be aware that to total occupants is referring to a specific point in time. This time is called the census moment. For the 1990 census, the census moment is zero hours of Monday, March 12.

[Illustration text]
-If the baby is born before the zero hour on March 12, the baby will be counted in the census. If the baby is born after midnight, the baby will not be counted.

-If the person died after the zero hour on March 12, he/she will be included in the census. If he/she died before the zero hour, he/she will not be counted.
[End of illustration]

Read the question word-for-word:

[Illustration text]
-How many persons normally live in this dwelling, including the small children and the elderly?

-There are six of us.
[End of illustration]

Be sure that the informant does not forget to count small children and elderly persons.

It is very important that all of the persons who live in the dwelling be counted. For this reason, you should remember when you do the interview that the informant is the one who knows how many persons normally live in the dwelling. Only if the informant has doubts, you can help him/her by considering that:

These are occupants of the dwelling

1. Persons who are nationals or foreigners who normally live in the dwelling.
2. Persons who are temporarily absent from the dwelling for reasons of work, health, vacations, etc., but normally live in the dwelling.
3. The household servants and their family members who normally sleep in the dwelling.
4. Newborns, children of the women who live in the dwelling, who were born before zero hours on March 12, 1990.
5. Persons who died after the zero hour of March 12, 1990.
6. Persons who are present in the dwelling and do not have another fixed residence.
These are not occupants of the dwelling:
1. The persons who are visiting the dwelling and have a fixed place of residency elsewhere.
2. Persons who left to live in another permanent residence, for reasons of studies, work, or other reasons.
3. The domestic servants who sleep elsewhere.
4. The newborns, children of women who live in the dwelling, who were born after zero hours of March 12, 1990.
5. Persons who died before the zero hour of March 12, 1990.
6. Foreign diplomats and their families.

Be aware that in the interviews that you do after March 12, occupants are considered the persons who normally lived in the dwelling until zero hours of Monday, March 12, 1990.

13. Families or groups in the dwelling

This question will allow us to know if there are families or groups of persons who cook or buy their food separately. The intention is to identify the families or groups of persons who occupy the dwelling, related or not, who share expenses, primarily food expenses.

[Illustration]
In my house, we all live with the same budget.
13. Families of groups in the dwelling
In this dwelling, are there families or groups of persons who cook or buy their food separately?
Mark only one circle with an x
Yes [ ] 1
No [x] 2
If the answer is 'yes,' ask:
Then counting your family, how many families or groups cook or buy their food separately?

Number of families

My brother-in-law and his wife and child also live here, but they buy their food and cook separately.
13. Families of groups in the dwelling
In this dwelling, are there families or groups of persons who cook or buy their food separately?
Mark only one circle with an x
Yes [x] 1
No [ ] 2
If the answer is 'yes,' ask:
Then counting your family, how many families or groups cook or buy their food separately?

Yes [ ] 1
No [x] 2
If the answer is 'yes,' ask:

[__]
Number of families
[End of illustration]

14. Lists of persons

After you know how many families or groups of persons live in a dwelling, you will have to list all of the occupants of the dwelling. Read out loud: Tell me the names and last names of all of the persons who normally live in this dwelling, starting with the head of household.

If there is only one family or group, write the names of all of the persons who occupy the dwelling, starting with the head of household. It is important that you take into account that there are families and groups that have a female head of household, therefore it is necessary that you ask the informant who is the head of household, so that this is the first person that you write in the list.

If in the question about families or groups they answered that there is more than one family or groups of persons that cook or buy their food separately, write down first all of the members of one family or group starting with the head of household and marking this person with an x; then note the members of another family or groups, starting with the head of household, that you will mark with another x; and continue with the subsequent groups. In this way, you will note all of the occupants of the dwelling.

[Illustration]
If there is more than one family or groups of persons, organize them always starting with the head of household of each group.

So first, I will tell you the names of my family and then I will tell you the names of the family of my brother-in-law, since they buy their food and cook separately.

14. List of persons
Tell me the names and last names of all of the persons who normally live in this dwelling, starting with the head of household.

If there is more than one family or groups of persons, put them in order always starting with the head of household of each group.

Person 1 Jesus Molina Flores head of household x
Person 2 Maria Galicia de Molina
Person 3 Raul Molina Galicia
Person 4 Rene Molina Flores head of household x
Person 5 Rocio Torres de Molina
Person 6 Fernando Molina Flores
Person 7
Person 8
Person 9
Person 10

If there are more than ten persons in the dwelling, use another questionnaire, continue with the list, and ask the questions for each person.
[End of illustration]

Once you have completed the list, check that the number of persons on the list is the same as the number of persons declared in the question "Number of persons in the dwelling". If they are not the same, clear up the difference with the informant and make the necessary corrections.

Be sure that you put all of the persons on the list who normally live in the dwelling and continue with the interview.

Questionnaires used for the dwelling census

On the cover of the questionnaire, there is a box that will help you know how many questionnaires you used to enumerate the dwelling. If the dwelling normally has 1 to 10 persons living in it, then one questionnaire will be enough to complete the census. In this case, write:

This is the questionnaire 1 of 1 used to enumerate this dwelling.

What to do if there are more than 10 occupants of the dwelling?

When there are more than ten persons living in a dwelling that you must enumerate, continue with the list of persons in another questionnaire so that you obtain the information about the characteristics of all of the persons who normally live in the dwelling; also write all of the geographical identification data. In the second questionnaire, you should leave the 'Characteristics of the Dwelling", "Number of persons who normally live in the dwelling," and "Families or groups in the dwelling" blank, since this information are registered in the first questionnaire.

For example, if in the dwelling there are normally 13 persons living, in the box on the cover page of the questionnaire which tells how many questionnaires you used to enumerate the dwelling, you should write:

[Illustration]
This is the questionnaire 1 of 2 used to enumerate this dwelling.
This is the questionnaire 2 of 2 used to enumerate this dwelling.

Questions that are asked of all of the persons

You should ask questions 1: relationship; 2: sex; 3: Age; 4: place of birth of all of the persons that normally live in the dwelling, no matter what their age is.

1. Relationship

You want to know the relationship that each person on the list has to the head of household or group, or if the person you are interviewing is the head of household (male or female).

Remember that the head of household or group is a person who normally lives in the dwelling, and is known as the head of household b the members of the family or group.

If the dwelling is occupied by one person who lives alone, this person is considered "Single person".

2. Sex

Do not forget that you must always mark one answer.

When it is a name that can be used by a man or a woman, such as Guadalupe, Asuncion, Concepcion, Refugio, etc., ask the informant if the person is a man or woman.

3. Age

Do not forget that you must always get and write down an answer.

There are persons who have the custom of answering the number of years that they will complete, for example: "I am almost 23." Since you are asking the number of years completed, you should write:

[22]

Write the number
If the person is less than one year old, mark the corresponding box:

If this person is less than one year old
Mark with an x
[x]

If the person does not remember his/her age, help the person remember by trying to remember an important activity in his/her life, for example, how old were you when you got married and how many years have you been married?

This question should be asked of all persons who have completed five years or more, including the adults, since many older persons attend programs for adult education.

If the person goes to school to study or is enrolled in an open education system, it is considered that he/she attends school. If the person goes to a school to work because that is where he/she carries out his/her occupation, it is considered that the person does not go to school.

10. Grades completed

With this question you want to know if the person who is interviewed approved or passed any grade or year of studies, and if he/she did, how many grades or years he/she approved or passed at the various levels of education.

It is important that you are clear that this is about years completed or passed. The years that were failed (repeated), the years that are in progress, or the incomplete years do not count.

If the person approved or passed any grade or year of studies, read to the informant all of the educational levels that are in the question.

Remember that this question is about all of the sons and daughters that were born alive, without taking into account whether they live with the mother or not. Be sure that the total of sons and daughters that the enumerated woman has had is equal or greater than the number of children that she currently has; clarify this with the informant and correct any errors.

Final recommendations

Be sure to enumerate all of the dwellings in your work area. Always ask, "how many dwellings are there in this lot or property?"

Remember that the occupants of the dwelling are all of the persons who normally live in the dwelling and you should always count the small children and the elderly.

Do not forget to that this manual with you when you are doing interviews; it was specially prepared to resolve the questions that come up when you are doing your work as an enumerator.

Do not forget
The success of the census depends on you!
