Enumerator Manual for National Census of Population and Housing in 2002
[Table of contents omitted]
There are three kinds of housing units to be distinguished:
2. Occupied other living quarter
3. Collective living quarter.
2. In case of the need to decide if a housing unit in which two or more households reside is a single dwelling or two separate dwellings an enumerator should follow a rule stating that: if in a housing unit (or a house) there is at least one room such as a kitchen, bathroom, WC shared by the household, such housing unit (or house) should be treated as one dwelling and should be enumerated on a single Questionnaire A. If none of the rooms listed above is shared -- the households occupy two separate dwellings.
3. Presbyteries, bishop curies etc. occupied by clerics (rectors, vicars, priests at the time of retirement etc.) that Questionnaire A household should be enumerated as dwellings. When reporting a size of the flat (number of rooms and the size in square meters) the rooms dedicated to serving the needs of the religious community (such as parish offices, lecture rooms etc.) should not be taken into account.
In case of two or more clerics living in the same presbytery, in which each of them occupies a separate set of rooms (bedroom, bathroom, anteroom etc.) the sets of rooms should be treated as separate dwelling and all the common rooms (kitchen, dining room etc.) should not be taken into account.
A room situated in a building constructed for other (than housing) purpose but was adopted for housing, e.g. laundry, garage, attic, storage room or other (hotel room, classroom etc.),
Semi permanent room, constructed to be the housing for a group of people or a single person for a limited time-- usually several years, e.g. barrack or container -- dedicated usually to people on the area of natural disasters (floods, fires etc.) and treated as a temporary housing occupied until having a new regular dwelling,
Provisional housing, e.g. shed, hut etc.,
Mobile housing, e.g. construction site trailer, caravan, boat,
Those are used for housing (at the time of enumeration) due to the natural catastrophe or a lifestyle of the enumerated person or family.

All the persons staying there temporarily at midnight 20th to 21 of May

2. A household is a group of persons (related or not) who live together and share the typing living costs.
The main household in the flat is a household of the owner of the flat.
4. An order of enumeration is important. The first person enumerated should always be the head of the household. The head is a person who contributes to the income of the household in the greatest proportion. If two or more persons contribute the same, the head is a person who manages the finance.
The other persons should be enumerated in an order reflecting the relationship to the head of the household -- spouse/partner, single children, children who have their own families, parents, parents in law, grandparents, siblings and their families and persons who are not related.

Answer 3. Individual central heating -- should be selected if the source of the heat generation is situated in a single-family building (the furnace is installed in an own boiling house in the basement, bathroom, kitchen, or there is an electrical floor heating installed) or the source of heat is situated in the vicinity of the dwelling located in a multi-family building, e.g. the furnace is installed in the kitchen, bathroom (the so-called storey heating)

1. Information about the building should be determined only in case of buildings housing more than one dwelling. In case there are two or more enumerated dwellings in the building, indicate information about the building only in the first enumerated dwelling.

3. If there are buildings adjacent to each other on the estate with a singular ordinal number and these buildings have walls built from the same materials, they should be treated as one building unless there are significant differences in the height and age of these buildings and there is no doubt that each of these is a separate building. Buildings with outer walls built from different materials should be treated as separate buildings.
While determining the answer only the tenure of the building should be taken into consideration. The land on which the building stands does not have to be owned by the entity owning the building, it may be held in form of a hereditary tenure.
2. A building legally owned by several subjects present in the land and mortgage register is a common real estate.

The identification number should be copied in the same form from Questionnaire A on which the person has been enumerated.
2. Fill in item 6 with the number which was used to enumerate this person in Questionnaire A.
3. Fill in item 7 with the number of Questionnaire M (from 1 ad infinitum) which is given by the enumerator to persons inquired separately for each space.
2.The community (gmina) of a permanent residence cannot be the same as the community of enumeration (current residence). The only exception is a municipal-country community in case, when the permanent residence is the municipal part of community and the current residence is the country part (or the other way round).
2. The community of the previous residence cannot be the same as the enumerated community (the place of current residence). The exception is a municipal-country community.

3.In point d write the month and year of the beginning and end of the absence.
2. For people who left the current place of residence and went abroad or to another place in the country and have returned, the reason of departure needs to be determined.

The number of the person form the personal Questionnaire A-- the number should be listed in question 6 of the Questionnaire D.

2. A woman can answer all the questions 8-14 (full answer) or decide not to answer some of them (partial answers). If a woman is reluctant to answer a question the enumerator should move on to the next question.
