3. Specifying a number of households in the dwelling and relationships between household members
[p.10]

1. The aim of information gathered in this section is to determine the number of households in the dwelling, as well as to specify relations between persons in the household.

2. A household consists of individuals registered for both temporal and permanent residence.

3. A household is understood to be a composition of related or unrelated persons living together and having registered sources of maintenance. If a person or a group of persons living together (in one dwelling) has/have separate sources of maintenance, such person(s) create/s a separate household consisting of one or few members.

4. Each person residing or staying in the dwelling should have a number of the household he or she is the member of indicated.
Proper classification of persons and households is of significant importance, as members of households will be further divided into families.

5. Each of individuals staying in the dwelling should have only one answer indicated -- the degree of kinship with the representative of the household. The answer should be indicated basing on the classification below:

1) Representative of the household,
2) Husband/partner or wife/partner of the representative of the household being in a formal or informal relationship and living together,
3) Children, own or adopted by the representative and stepchildren (children of the partner of the representative), regardless of their age and marital status,
4) Father and mother of the representative, including stepfather and stepmother,
5) Father-in-law and mother-in-law, that is parents of the partner of the representative,
6) Son-in-law and daughter-in-law of the representative -- partner of the child,
7) Brothers and sisters of the representative, regardless of their age and marital status,
8) Grandparents and great-grandparents of the representative and his/her partner,
9) Grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the representative and his/her partner, as well as partners of the grandchildren,
10) Other relatives: brothers and sisters of the partner of the representative and their children, partners of the relatives of the representative and his/her partner (sister-in-law, brother-in-law), other relatives of the representative or his/her partner (aunt, uncle, etc.),
11) Unrelated persons: children, parents, siblings and other relatives of the partner of the representative, partners of relatives of the representative (that is -- partners of individuals classified with symbols from 3 to 11) and other individuals.

6. While choosing the representative of the household, following principles should be followed:

- If there is only one person in the dwelling, he/she is the representative of the household;
- If the dwelling is inhabited by partners/partners with or without children, one of the partners is the representative of the household,
- If the dwelling is inhabited by a parent with children, the parent is the representative of the household;
- If there are three generations inhabiting the dwelling -- a person from the second generation is the representative of the household;
- If none of above requirements has been met, any adult person inhabiting the dwelling can be chosen to be the representative of the household.

7. If there are two or more households in the dwelling, then two or more individuals will be selected as representatives of the households. After choosing a representative, he or she is classified with the first position in a given household -- without changing the number of the person in the dwelling.

8. Individuals in formal and informal relationships should have the name and surname of the partner being a member of the same household specified. If the partner is not the member of the household or the person is not in a formal or informal relationship, the "does not reside at this address" answer should be indicated.

4. Information on households
[p.11]

Question 1. What is the main source of maintenance of the household?
[p.11]

Please mark the source of income, which for the last 12 months has been the principal source of maintenance of the household, established in your dwelling.

Similarly to persons -- information on incomes are gathered for households as well.
The main and additional source of maintenance shall be specified for each household, that is -- the sources allowing goods to be purchased and basic needs are fulfilled.

The sources of maintenance of the household result from sources of maintenance of consecutive individuals and earnings obtained within 12 months before the census.
Specification of the main source of maintenance of the household is of significant importance and it is calculated by combining earnings of members of the household obtained from the same source.

The main source of maintenance of the household is the source, from which majority of earnings is obtained and used to satisfy needs of all members of the household.

The additional source of maintenance is the second highest source of earnings; it cannot belong to the same cate
gory as the main source of maintenance.


If individuals being members of the same household obtain earnings from the same source of maintenance that is -- from sources classified as the same category (all individuals have the same source of maintenance specified in Module 5), it is the main and the only source of maintenance of the household.

If individuals being members of the household obtain earnings from sources classified as different categories (different sources of maintenance are specified in Module 5), then -- basing on self-evaluation of the members of the household - it should be specified which source is the main source of maintenance and which one is the additional source of maintenance.

The main source of maintenance of the household must comply with the main source of maintenance of at least one member of the household.

After specification of the main and the additional source of maintenance of the household, sources of maintenance should be specified for all households (in accordance with the principles provided above), classifying individuals as in Module 5 (symbols 1-15, except individuals being supervised). Detailed explanations concerning consecutive sources of maintenance are provided in the section on sources of maintenance (Module 5).

Question 2. What is the additional source of maintenance of the household?
[p.12]

In the case of any additional sources of maintenance in the household (according to the principles provided above), a proper symbol should be indicated in accordance with classification provided in the question concerning the main source of maintenance.

If the household has no additional sources of maintenance, symbol 16: "no additional source" should be indicated.

After answering the questions, the individuals will be classified as employed, unemployed or economically inactive persons. The module aims at specification of factual rather than formal employment status of the respondents. A person is considered employed, if he or she performs any economic activity (including part-time work and illegal work), which is connected with receiving payment, regardless of the employment status of the person. For example: an unemployed person, who is registered as such in the Office of Employment, but worked for at least an hour during the week (including performance of illegal and part-time works), will be registered as an employed person during the census. Performance of any work should be properly specified by indicating the "any work connected with receiving payment" phrase or providing additional feedback for the respondent.

Question 1. Did you perform for at least 1 hour any work providing earnings or income, or help without any contractual remuneration in the family-owned economic activity during the week lasting from 25 to 31 March 2011?

Answer 1. "yes" concerns individuals, who worked for at least an hour and received a proper payment for the work (in the form of cash settlement or in exchange for some commodities) or helped other members of the family in agriculture or operating of any other economic activity without receiving payment within the week appointed for the census --from 25.03 to 31.03.2011.

- Students (and individuals doing work experience), who are working on the basis of the vocational training agreement between them and companies or other individuals,
- Individuals employed in an agricultural holding or any other economic activity operated by the family, who receive payment for their services (even if the payment is not undertaken in the cash settlement form) -- regardless of relations to the owner of the agricultural holding or the economic activity (for example a son, who helps his father to perform necessary undertakings to maintain the agricultural holding in a good condition and receiving a set payment for such services, should be treated as a hired worker rather than a contributing family worker.
b) The own-account workers are:
- Owners, co-owners and tenants of individual agricultural holdings, who work in the aforementioned holdings; the holding-related work should be indicated if it is connected with receiving payment, which is the main or the additional source of maintenance of the respondent,

- Individuals, who have been required to register their individual economic activities.
c) Contributing family workers are individuals, who support the economic activity operated by the family without receiving any payment for provided services.
Contributing family workers are also individuals studying on the daily basis, if they support their families systematically, being members of the same household as the owner of the economic activity is in the same time.
Note!
Individuals, who are not members of the same household as the owner of the agricultural holding, who helped the owner in the agricultural holding in the week of the census should not be treated as contributing family workers. Nevertheless, they can be considered employed, if they had worked somewhere else and received a proper payment for their services (or if they had been employed but have not worked). However, if the individuals, who are not members of the same household as the owner of the agricultural holding, who helped the owner in the agricultural holding in the week of the census have received any payment or commodities for their work, they shall be considered as hired workers (see: point a).
Individuals, who have been elected (appointed) to perform their work, such as councilors, should be treated as employed individuals (answer 1. "yes"), regardless of the fact, if there were any sessions (meetings) of the board during the week of the census, as the work is not only based on attending meetings, but also on preparation for them, meeting with citizens of a given region, recording and answering to various complains of the citizens, etc. The only identified exception takes place, when the appointed person was on vacation or was seriously sick. In such cases, answer 2 "no" should be indicated in question 1, and 1 "yes" answer should be indicated in question 2.

Answer 2. "no" -- concerns individuals, who did not have work and did not worked during the week of census performance.
Note!
While indicating the answer to this question, the period of absence is important and divided into "up to 3 months" and "longer than 3 months". Individuals, the absence of whom is longer than 3 months are considered unemployed.

In the case, if hired workers are on leave without pay or parental leave (the latter shall not be confused with the maternity leave), the duration of the leave should be taken into consideration. If the leave without pay lasts up to 3 months , the 1. "yes" answer should be indicated (the person is then considered employed). If the leave lasts longer than 3 months, the 2. "no" answer should be indicated.

Individuals on maternity (paternity) leaves, who did not perform any (part-time) work connected with receiving a proper payment should be considered as employed, but not performing their duties (answer 2 "no" in question 1 and answer 1 "yes" in question 2).

Contributing family workers, who did not work during the week of census performance due to their illness, personal issues or any other reason (including weather conditions) should not be considered employed.

In the case of individuals working on their own account, the 1. "yes" answer should be indicated if their company still operated (there was no liquidation or break in operation). If the individuals do not work during the week of census performance because there was a break in operation, the individuals should be considered unemployed (answer 2 "no" in question 1 and answer 2. "no" in question 2).

Individuals, who had had been employed and waited for the working period to begin should be considered as unemployed and have the 2. "no" answers indicated in questions 1 and 2.

They should be considered employed during the period of validity of their contracts. After the period, they should be considered unemployed (answer 2 "no" in question 1 and answer 2 "no" in question 2).

Students and trainees, who work in a company (factory) in order to gain experience and do not receive any payment for their services should not be considered employed -- answer 2 "no" in questions 1 and 2.

Detailed information about a type of performed job should be specified in order to classify it with a symbol complying with The Professions and Specialties Classification ( (Regulation of the Minister of Work and Pensions dated on 27.04.2010, The Journal of Laws no. 82 position 537).

The most suitable name of profession should be chosen from the glossary (in the form of a drop-down menu). The glossary contains both formal names of professions and a wide range of synonyms used in a widespread manner to describe various positions and professions. Choice of the most suitable item from the glossary will lead to proper classification of the respondent by assigning a symbol, which complies with the current classification.

Note!
While specifying the name of the performed job, one should bear in mind that the practiced rather than learned profession shall be indicated.

Detailed information concerning the position and responsibilities connected with it should be gathered form each respondent.

If a worker performs numerous activities, which are typical for few professions (for example turner -- machinist miller), the principal profession or a profession connected with majority of performer activities should be taken into consideration.

While specifying the performed job, the following issues should be taken into consideration:
- While classifying managerial positions, the specification of the manager sector of company or institution, as well as responsibilities of a particular person should be considered, for example: Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Financial Manager, Human Resources Manager,
- While classifying other positions, the responsibilities and activities performed by a particular person should be considered, for example: recruitment specialist, trend analyst (cool hunter), finance expert, vocational tutor, cutter, crane operator,
- Individuals on managerial positions, the responsibilities of whom are closely related to science, medicine or law-related issues and the responsibilities prevail, should be treated as experts rather than managers,
- Individuals working on their own account should be classified in accordance to the fact, whether their activities are similar to those of manager or a worker performing basic management-related activities. Therefore, owners of small service-oriented companies, shops, bakeries or tailor's shop should not be classified as managers but as shop assistants, bakers or tailors,
- Trainees and applicants should be classified using a name of profession practiced after completion of the course (training),
- Priests and clergymen performing strictly religious duties should be classified using a name of profession which is the closes in meaning to "priest".
- While classifying professions practiced in agriculture, the type of production should be indicated (specifying, whether it is plant-oriented, animal-oriented or mixed in character) and specify, whether the work performer by the respondent is connected with the type of production, for example: arable farming worker, cattleman, healthy food producer,
- Farmers having mixed type of production indicated and specializing in both animal-oriented and plant-oriented farming should be classified using a symbol, which is the closest in meaning to "plant and animal-oriented production farmer".
If finding a proper name of the profession is impossible, the "not specified" section should be chosen, for example "not specified -- experts".

In the case of agricultural activities, information about prevailing type of production should be indicated (as in the case of arable farming, cattle breeding). Farmers having mixed type of production indicated and specializing in both animal-oriented and plant-oriented farming, should be classified using a symbol which is the closest in meaning to "plant and animal-oriented production farmer".

If the respondent was absent for a longer period of time, for example due to maternity/paternity leave, the number of hours worked per week should be provided basing on the period right before the leave.

Note!
If the respondent cannot provide the exact number of hours worked per week, because the work time varies from week to week or from month to month (as it is in the case of farmers and individuals practicing liberal professions) and there are significant problems with providing answer to question 7, the average number of hours worked per week calculated for last four weeks should be provided. In the case of seasonal workers, the work time should be provided for the last season.

[p.37]

The workload should be properly indicated for all members of the household (aged 15 and more) within last 12 months that is -- from April 2010 to March 2011.

Working on the farm is understood as performance of undertakings, which are strictly connected with agricultural production (both animal and plant-oriented), as well as general works connected with management and keeping the farm in overall good condition (organization and management of works on the farm, management of necessary formalities, field works, breeding of animals, storage-related undertakings, preparation of products to be sold and selling of these products, purchase of resources necessary to run production, repairing of devices and machines, as well as agricultural buildings and installations, transportation undertakings, and proper accounting activities).

Following activities should not be considered working on the farm: agriculture-related works performed by neighbors supporting the family, works connected with maintenance of the household (for example: preparation of meals, washing, cleaning, taking care of children), forestry and hunting-related works, and works connected with fishing.

The workload is calculated on yearly basis (that is -- calculated for 12 months before the census performance). Only the months in which the work was continuous in character should be taken into consideration that is -- months in which at least 20 days were spent on working on the farm, regardless of number of hours spent on working each day. Months, during which individuals worked on farm during particular days of the weeks, for example: during Saturdays and Sundays, should not be taken into consideration. Individuals, who did not worked on the farm for at least 20 days in any month of the last year, should have the "0" symbol indicated.

The only exception concerns individuals, who started working on farm a week before the census performance and therefore have not yet worked on the farm for 20 days. Such individuals should have 1 month of work indicated.

Students attending to extra-mural, day, and night schools should be treated similarly to other individuals that is -- they should have the factual number of months spent on helping the family by working on the farm indicated. Only the months, in which at least 20 days were spent to work on the farm should be concerned.

Module 12 -- Building (questions 1-6)
General provisions
[p.68]

Principles on determining the separateness of particular buildings during the census concern providing proper numeration of the inhabitable constructions. According to the principles, a separate building is considered an individual building, which is separated from other constructions by a free space and having its own number.

A separate building is also understood as a building having more than one number (in the case, when consecutive staircases have been labeled with different numbers), but the building creates an integral, architectonical whole.

1. In the case of collective constructions, created by buildings forming an integral architectonical whole or based on combination of buildings being architecturally different, a separate building is understood as every building or section having its own number. Such situation can be encountered in the case of detached houses, for example.

2. If the building has only one number, but is formed by few constructions combined together, they should be considered a single building, if the walls of the constructions are made from the same material, unless there are significant differences in height or age of the constructions and there is no doubt that they are separate buildings. Buildings, the walls of which are constructed from different materials should be considered separate buildings.

3. Information on multi-residential buildings will be gathered from the Database of Buildings, mainly on the basis of information gathered from organizational units having no legal personality, legal persons, individuals providing services for local units, the basic economic activity of whom is management or supervision over buildings, being owned by: companies, Ministries of the Interior, Justice, National Defense, housing collectives, building companies, local self-government units, and other parties being in possession of buildings and other constructions.

Question 1. Type of building in which dwelling in which you reside is situated:
[p.69]

Answer 1) residential should be indicated, if the building consists of dwellings only, as well as if there are other supplementary chambers, but the dwellings accounts for more than 50 % of the entire building.
The category includes:
- single-family buildings
- multi-residential buildings
- recreational buildings -- a building, the construction of which (on the basis of construction law) required obtaining a residential building construction permit, and the main function of which is to rent it for individuals staying in it temporarily, for example: during vacation or free time, as well as a building, which was used as a residential building, but has been adjusted for temporal stays of individuals afterwards.
Note:
A typical holiday house, which was constructed to be used only during the summer and is not adjusted to be inhabited during other seasons (having no foundations, heating systems, etc.) should not be considered a recreational building.
Answer 2) institutional concerns buildings, which are owned in more than 50 % by collective households (for example: by dormitories, boarding schools, orphanages or sanatoriums), in which one or few dwellings can be also located.
Definition
Institutional building is a group of chambers (rooms and other supplementary spaces), which is located in one or few separate units owned by a company providing following services: nursing and education, nursing and treatment, room rental, etc., which is inhabited by a larger number of individuals.
Answer 3) non-residential concerns buildings, more than 50 % of which is used for non-residential purposes (for example: they are governed and managed by a school, office, shop, storage, our-patient clinic), in which at least one dwelling can be located as well.
Note:
A non-residential building can be also understood as a building, which consists of both inhabitable part and agricultural part (including stables, cowsheds, piggeries, etc.) or a part, which is used for agricultural purposes only.

Question 2. Number of dwellings in the building
[p.69]

A number of all dwellings located in the building should be indicated.

Question 3. Form of building ownership:
[p.69]

1. The owner of the building is understood as an individual, a legal person, or an organizational unit without law personality having the ownership title for the building, which is confirmed by proper record in the Land and Mortgage Register or in other document confirming the ownership. The fact, whether the party owns the building for its own usage, or it is entirely or partially rented for other individuals or institutions is of no importance.
Therefore, except of individuals, the building can be owned by the gmina, a (state, communal or private) company, the State Treasury, financial institution, insurance institution, partnership, religious organization, etc.
While specifying the answer for the question, the right of ownership of the building should be taken into consideration at first. The plot of land, where the building is located may not be owned by the owner of the building or it may be owned for life.

2. In the case of buildings owned by one party in their entirety (that is -- there is no room in the building owned by any other party), the answers "natural person", "housing cooperative", "gmina", "State Treasury", "company", "public building society", or "other entity" should be chosen.
Therefore:
Answer 1) natural person -- concerns buildings, which are owned by natural person (or persons), regardless, if the owners live in them or rented or leased them for free to other person (persons) or the building are prepared for accommodation, but no one lives in them yet.

Answer 2) housing cooperative -- concerns buildings, which are owned (in their entirety) by hosing cooperatives.
In the case of single-family houses (built by housing cooperatives, single-family houses construction association or any other cooperative), the factual law status of the building must be indicated as for the critical moment of the census. If the right of ownership was transferred to the housing cooperative/natural person, the natural person should be considered to be the owner of the building. Nevertheless, if the right of ownership was not transferred yet, the building is considered owned by the housing cooperative.

Answer: 3) gmina -- concerns buildings:
- Owned by gminas, and governed by a housing company or communal organization unit created in order to manage the buildings owned by the gmina, as well as buildings managed by gminas in their entirety,
- Governed by the gmina, but being at disposal of social facilities, such as: health care centers, social welfare centers, educational units, and cultural units
- Owned by the State Treasury but governed by the gmina on the basis of so-called "compulsory administration"
- Owned by a powiat (local self-government) which are not governed by any gmina, and transferred to the powiat (local self-government) by the State Treasury, voivode, or owned on other basis
Answer: 4) State Treasury -- should be indicated for buildings being owned or managed by parties described further in question 3 ("Dwelling in which you reside is owned by") in Module 11 -- Dwelling under the "State Treasury" answer.

Answer: 5) company -- concerns buildings, which are owned by state and communal enterprises (except for public buildings societies) and state-governed organizational units, such as: universities, scientific institutes, and art-oriented institutions.
The "company" answer should be also indicated for buildings owned by private companies, operating in the form of partnerships, as well as buildings owned by various cooperatives, such as labor cooperatives, medical cooperatives, or agricultural cooperatives, except public buildings societies.

Answer: 6) public buildings society (TBS) -- should be indicated for buildings being owned or managed by parties described further in question 3 ("Dwelling in which you reside is owned by") in Module 11 -- Dwelling under the "public buildings society" answer.

Answer 7) other entity -- should be indicated for buildings being owned or managed by parties described further in question 3 ("Dwelling in which you reside is owned by") in Module 11 -- Dwelling under the "other entity" answer.
3. A building owned by few lawful owners creates a joint ownership. In the case of such buildings, the "8" or "9" answer should be indicated.
Answer: 8) joint ownership with separate ownership to residential dwellings-- concerns buildings being joint ownerships, in which all or some dwellings have separate ownership rights and are owned by other individuals or/and legal persons (for example: joint ownership of natural persons, joint ownership of natural persons and gmina, joint ownership of natural persons and company). The answer also concerns buildings, in which separate ownership has been based on the regulations included in the act dated on 15th December 2000 on housing collectives.
The category should also include buildings, which were in possession of former state-owned collective farms, but have been purchased or taken over by the Agricultural Property Agency and then sold to natural persons.

Answer: 9) joint ownership without separate ownership to residential dwellings-- concerns buildings, which are joint ownerships, but there is no separate ownership title to residential dwellings that is -- consecutive owners do not have their own Land and Mortgage Registers, but there is one Register concerning the whole building, in which ownership title is specified.

Question 4. Building completion year:
[p.71]

In the case of answer 1) year, the year of building completion should be provided.

The year of building completion is understood as a year, in which the construction was completed.

If the building was completed in stages (by finishing consecutive staircases or floors), the year of completion of the last part of the building should be taken into consideration.

If the building has been reconstructed after being destroyed, the year of completion of the reconstruction should be determined.

If the building has been renovated, the fact should not be indicated, but the year of putting the building into use by the construction supervision office.

If there are additional elements added to the existing building, such as additional chambers of floors, the year of completion of the initial building should be taken into consideration rather than the year of addition of supplementary elements.

Answer 2) Under construction concerns buildings, which are still under construction and only some parts of them, such as floors or staircases, have been put into use.

A building equipped with water system should be understood as a building, in which water is provided for all or some dwellings in the building, as well as a building, in which there is no tap with running water in each dwelling, but such device is located in the building, for example, in the hall.
Answer 1) yes -- from a water-line system -- should be indicated if there is a tap with running water in the building, and the water is provided (through connectors) to the tap. The fact, whether the water-line system is governed by: a communal company, water law company, individual enterprise, housing collective, gmina, or any other party is of no importance.
Definition:
A water-line system -- is a set of connected hoses used to transport water from the source to the receiver. The water-line system includes: main hoses, supplementary hoses, and connectors, being owned by a water management company.
Answer 2) yes - local should be indicated if the system supplies one or more neighboring buildings with water by means of a hydrophone-based system, including water pump, hydrophone and pressurized transmitter.
