Enumerator Instructions on the Procedure for Conducting the 2002 All-Russian Population Census and Completing the Census Forms

[Table of contents omitted.]

[p. 3]

1. On the All-Russian population census
The All-Russian population census will be held in October 2002.
In plain language, a census means counting of the population.
In this country censuses have been taken for more than a century. The first comprehensive population census was held in 1897, and the coming census will be the eleventh count.
The last census in Russia was held in 1989.

1. 1. Purpose of the census
Knowledge of the number, allocation and composition of the population is a vital component in planning and managing of the economic and social life of the country. Today, no state or society would be able to ensure prosperity of the nation without such information. The main source of this information would be population censuses.

The data produced by the population census are needed to formulate the state budget, reduce unemployment, strengthen the national defense potential, allocate financial resources to pension provisions, public health, education, road and housing construction, and to resolve many other social issues.

1.2. Fundamental Principles of the Census
To conduct a population census means to organize collection, processing and publication of the demographic, economic and social data on the entire population living in the country at a certain moment.

The principles of the population census are:

- Complete-count basis. Every inhabitant has to be interviewed without exception (however, avoiding double count) regardless of the sex, age, or rights to live in a given area or dwelling;
- Direct collection of data through interviewing individuals;
- Self-determination of the people when answering questions. This means that the census is based only on the answers given by a respondent without their confirmation by the relevant documents.

Confidentiality of the data reported by the population: Every questionnaire bears the sign "Confidential (guaranteed by the information recipient)". Pursuant to the federal law "On All-Russia Population Census" (Article 3), "Data on the population to be found in the census forms is confidential information, and is not subject to divulging (disclosure), and is used for the purposes of forming the relevant federal information resources''.

[p. 4]

The accuracy and comparability of the data accumulated during the census are ensured by:

- Conducting the census according to the universal program and rules effective on the entire territory of the country;
- Collecting the information on the fixed date and time - enumeration point of time.

The census results are published in the form summary tables only (the principle of confidentiality). No information on an individual, family or household will be published. Under Article 8 of the Federal Law "On All-Russia Population Census", no employee participating in the census - from an enumerator up to the head of the State Committee of the Russian Federation on Statistics (Goskomstat of Russia) - has the right the divulge personal information.

1.3. Organization of the census
The entire territory of the country is divided into census tracts encompassing, as a rule, from 9 thousand people in rural regions up to 19 thousand people in urban districts. The management of the census tract is the head of the census tract and the assistant.

Every census tract is divided into 7-9 instructor's areas (on the average) headed by instructors-controllers.

Every instructor's area is further divided into 4-5 counting areas (on the average) where enumerators will interview the population.

Besides, stationary counting offices are deployed where people (those without dwelling, or unwilling to let an enumerator into one's home etc.) can come and give answers to the questionnaire.

The final results of the census will be produced at the Goskomstat of Russia and then reported not only to the central government but to each region, city / town or district, and published in the media for public knowledge.

2. Basic principles of interviewing

The census must cover all, including individuals living in somewhat unusual or even strange conditions. We will discuss various situations which, however, you may not encounter. But if yes, you ought to know how to handle them.

If you stumble at a problem during enumeration, or you have forgotten something, do not be ashamed to refer to this brochure - it has been designed to help you.

[p. 5]

Please, remember!
The data are recorded into the census schedules (forms S,P, K, D and KPL) only as declared by the respondent, without presenting any documents confirming the answers. All questions have to be asked exactly as they are formulated in the questionnaire, and in the same sequence.

2.1. Census documents
Census documents on the dwelling are a cover separating the questionnaires completed in different living quarters.

Form S "List of Persons": on each side of the form you should make a list of persons living or present in the dwelling; as a rule, each form is completed for two dwellings.

Form P "Living Conditions of the Population": on each side of the form you should record the answers to the questions describing the dwellings (Section I) and the living conditions of each household (Section II); as a rule, each form is completed for two dwellings.

Form K "Census Schedule" is intended for two persons. It has 11 questions on each side and is completed on the persons permanently living in the premises, which are not underlined in your notebook.

Form D "Census Schedule" is intended for one person and contains 13 questions. It is completed for the persons permanently living in the dwelling underlined in your notebook.

Persons temporarily staying in the Russian Federation at the enumeration point of time and with the usual residence abroad will be registered under a brief procedure delineated in Form V "Census Schedule for Persons Temporarily Staying in Russia and Permanently Residing Abroad". The form is intended for 8 persons, 4 on each side.

There is a number of control documents, which are completed in order to avoid omissions or double count.

Form KF "Control Chip" is completed if a person has two places of residence and this particular place was chosen for the census (where you are conducting interview).

Form KPL "Control Census Schedule'' is completed for the persons staying out of their homes (for example, in hospitals, on a mission or official trip, visiting friends etc.), who would claim that at the place of their permanent residence there is no one to supply relevant data to the enumerator.

[p. 6]

Form SPR "Certificate of Completed Census" is issued to persons with the completed control chip, as well as to those without permanent residence (homeless persons) or lead a nomadic life. The SPR Form is also handed out to those for whom Form V has been completed.

With the help of completed control census forms the census personnel will know whether a person has been covered by the census and whether his / her personal data have been correctly declared by the relatives at the place of permanent residence. The control chips will show whether an individual has completed the census forms several times. If a person has the certificate of completed census, the enumerator will not enumerate him repeatedly.

You will learn more on completing the census documents in Section 4 - "Procedure of Completing the Census Documents".

2.2. Time
The enumeration will start in the morning of October 9 and continue until October 16 inclusive.

The enumeration point of time is 00 hours, October 9.

Questions to the population should refer to the enumeration point of time. For example, infants born after the enumeration point of time (after 00 hours, October 9, 2002) should not to be enumerated, while those who died by the time of enumeration but had been alive at the enumeration point of time should be reported in the census documents.

2.3. Place
The population is enumerated at the place of permanent (usual) residence, and this place may or may not be identical to the place of his/her registration (visa).

Please, remember the vital notion: place of permanent residence.

However, places of permanent residence may be different.

In their majority, people live in regular dwellings all of us are used to.

The housing unit is the living quarters (dwelling).

[p. 7]

They are:

a) Apartment (including an apartment in a hostel);
b) Separate single-family house (izba, lodge, cottage or other single-family building);
c) Room in a hostel (if no apartments are available);
d) Suite or room in a hotel or other places of temporary accommodation of people, where permanently residing occupants are living;
e) Any other dwelling converted or arranged for human habitation (caravan, cabin, shed, barge, etc.);
f) Ward, section etc. (depending on the type of registration adopted in the respective organization) in social institutions (children's homes, orphanages, boarding schools for orphans and children left without parental care, old people's homes and nursing homes, hospitals for chronic patients etc.), barracks, penal institutions, religious institutions.

Homeless persons (those without a permanent place of residence), are also subject to enumeration (commonly called bomzh- "without a definite place of residence").

2.4. Population
Naturally, every person will be entered into the census schedule. However, interviewing and enumeration of the population will be conducted per unit of enumeration - a household. Please, remember this important notion.

2.4.1. Household

Household is a group of people residing in the same dwellings or their part, providing themselves with food and other essentials for living, i.e. completely or partially pooling and spending their incomes. They may be related through filiation or affinity, or be unrelated, or both.

A household may comprise one person living independently and providing himself/herself with food and other essentials for living.

The majority of households you are going to visit are family households, comprising relatives.

The respondents will determine themselves whether they are living in one or separate households. However, you should remember that:

- A tenant leasing dwellings from an individual citizen is not a member of the landlord's household, and is recorded as a separate household;
- Persons permanently living in hostels, hotels and boarding houses are enumerated as independent households;
- Service staff living in office accommodations or apartments (rooms) in social or medical care institutions they are employed by (for instance, doctors at the hospitals for chronic patients, educators in orphanages etc.) are treated as separate households;
- Persons without a permanent place of residence, homeless persons are also regarded as households.
[p. 8]

Households living in regular dwellings (types "a'' to "e", point 2.3) as well as homeless persons are private households.

Persons permanently living in social or medical care institutions, barracks, penal institutions, religious institutions (type "f', point 2.3) are regarded as collective households. These are groups of people living together, as a rule, united by a common purpose, complying with the universal rules and sharing their food. Please, remember, that the service staff of those institutions living in the service accommodations provided by the administration are not members of a collective household and are enumerated under the standard procedure as private households.

2.4.2. Persons subject to enumeration
People are enumerated at the place of their permanent (usual) residence. As a rule, the place of permanent residence is the population center, house or apartment where the respondent permanently (usually) spends a considerable part of his/her time. This may or may not be the place where the person has been registered.

Every person permanently (usually) living in the dwelling including those temporarily absent at the enumeration point of time census is subject to enumeration.

Please, remember the enumeration procedure applied to certain categories of citizens:

1. Persons permanently living in the given dwellings who are on a mission or an official trip, or work elsewhere on a contract with Russian or foreign institutions, or attend a training course for 1 year or less, as well as those on a vacation or on a visit to relatives or friends are enumerated at the place of their permanent residence with the record of their temporary absence.
2. Russian citizens who have been sent on a long mission abroad (for more than 1 year) by the state authorities and members of their families are enumerated at the place of their physical presence by the respective executive authorities (Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defense, and Federal Border Service).
3. Students of higher and secondary vocational education institutions and schools of basic vocational training living at the place of learning are enumerated therein, and not at home.
[p. 9]
4. Persons drafted to annual military camps are enumerated at home together with their family members with the record of their temporary absence.
5. Military personnel serving under a contract and living in unrestricted areas are enumerated with their family members in accordance with the regular procedure.
6. Military personnel drafted or serving under a contract and living in restricted areas are enumerated at the place of their physical presence by the respective federal executive authorities.
7. The crew members of Russian merchant and passenger vessels on a long voyage are enumerated with the record of temporary absence at the place of usual residence of the households they belong to. The crew members of vessels (other than those with a household) with the registered domicile at the ship or organization they are employed by are enumerated before departure at the location of the employer.
8. Persons held at the places of preliminary confinement. or under administrative arrest, or detained as criminal suspects, or under investigation as well as those with the court sentence not yet in force are enumerated at the place of their permanent (usual) residence with the record of their temporary absence.
9. Persons held at the places of preliminary confinement with the court sentence in force as well as persons serving a sentence in penal institutions are enumerated at the place of their physical presence by the respective federal executive authorities (Russian Ministry of Justice, Russian Federal Security Service).
10. Aliens permanently residing in the Russian Federation (i.e. individuals with foreign citizenship) and stateless persons are enumerated at the place of their residence under the regular procedure.
11. Individuals (regardless of their citizenship) who have arrived to the Russian Federation to work under a contract with Russian or foreign organizations (except aliens working at the representative offices of foreign states or international organizations), or to study for one year or more are enumerated as permanent residents of the Russian Federation in places of their usual residence in the Russian Federation (regardless of the time of their actual arrival - October 8, or a month or eighteen months before).
12. Individuals (regardless of their citizenship) who have arrived to the Russian Federation from foreign countries (including the CIS member states) for permanent residence, or seeking asylum (regardless of the availability of the residence permit) are enumerated as permanent residents of the Russian Federation on the present-in-area principle.
[p. 10]
13. Individuals without any other place of residence are registered at the hotels, hospitals, rest homes, sanatorium, etc.
14. Persons without permanent residence (for example, homeless persons) are enumerated on the present-in-area principle.
15. Persons temporarily residing in the Russian Federation at the enumeration point of time and permanently residing abroad (including the CIS member states) are enumerated with a brief questionnaire (Form V). Those will be:
- Persons (regardless of their citizenship) who have arrived to the Russian Federation to work or study for one year or less;
- Persons (regardless of their citizenship) who have arrived to the Russian Federation on a vacation, for medical treatment or on a visit to relatives or friends as tourists;
- Transit migrants (persons staying in Russia on their way to another country).

2.4.3. Persons exempt from enumeration
The population census does not cover:

- Persons on a mission or an official trip, or those who left to work under a contract with Russian or foreign organizations, or to study for 1 year or more (regardless of their period of stay or time left until their return);
- Aliens working in the representative offices of foreign states in the Russian Federation and members of their households;
- Aliens working in the representative offices of international organizations;
- Aliens who have arrived to the Russian Federation as members of delegations of foreign countries or international organizations.

2.4.4. Two places of residence
When enumerating people living in the given dwelling you must find out whether the household or any of its members have another place of residence. If yes, the person must decide upon the place of his/her enumeration. If the respondent finds difficulty in choosing the place of enumeration, preference is given to the place of residence of his / her household.

For example:

- If a respondent has an apartment (house or room) where he / she is registered, while living with the household in a different place (for instance, in an apartment of the spouse), the respondent must be enumerated at the place of residence of his/her household;
[p. 11]
- If a respondent lives in a hostel at the place of employment, and on weekends or days off goes to see the spouse and children living in a different locality, the person must be enumerated at the place of residence of his/her household. The same procedure is applied to people working on rotation shift duty;
- If a respondent has a countryside house or a summer cottage in the horticultural cooperative (dacha), and the rest of the time lives elsewhere (in a city apartment), he/she must be enumerated at the place where he/she spends most of the time.

In such instances, the enumerator completes control documents to avoid under-coverage or double count.

The table below defines the basic categories of respondents and gives examples of widespread cases you will probably encounter.

3.5. Selection of the dwellings for sample enumeration and preliminary packaging of census documents (October 8)

3.5.1. Selection of the dwellings for sample enumeration
Note: Point 3.5.1 is not effective in the territories where the census of the permanent population only with Form K or only with form D.

The instructor-controller selects dwellings for sample enumeration marking (underlining with the red pencil) the dwellings included into sampling in Table 5 of the enumerator's notebook, i.e. every fourth dwelling where someone was permanently residing during the preliminary visitation (i.e. from the dwellings with the number assigned in column 6, Table 5).

In the dwellings marked in red in Table 5: during enumeration forms S and P will be completed on the entire dwelling, and only Form D will be completed on every person permanently living therein.

In the dwellings not marked in red in Table 5: during enumeration Forms S and P will be completed on the entire dwelling, and only Form K will be completed on every person permanently living therein.

Please, remember! You cannot complete both, Form K and Form D on permanent residents living in the same dwelling. After completing Forms S and P you have to fill in either Form K or Form D.

Other forms (V, KF, KPL, SPR) can be completed as necessary, regardless of whether the dwelling was selected for sampling or not.

[Pages 27-29 of the original document are skipped.]

[p. 30]

4. Procedure of completing the census forms

4.1. How to complete machine-readable census forms (Forms (S, P, K, D, V, and N))

Now, you are beginning to complete the machine-readable census forms, which is an important phase of the All-Russia Population Census of 2002. In a longer run, your efficacy will determine the quality of computerized processing of the census forms and the accuracy of the census results.

[p.31]

When completing the census forms, you will need attention and exactness. In order to achieve good quality on the job, observe the following rules:

1. Use the census forms received at the stationary tract.

2. Complete the census forms with the black gel pen supplied by the instructor-controller. If the pen does not ensure proper completing of the census forms (it does not write or the ink is leaking), it should be replaced by the instructor. When completing the forms, use the hard base sheet of your briefcase.

3. Be attentive when completing the census forms, so as to minimize possible correction of figures and markers.

4. Answers should be recorded in the reserved fields in the census questionnaires. The fields with black borders are for words written in capital letters. The fields with color borders are for figures or markers.

5. Figures and markers should be written and made as indicated below:
[An image was omitted from the original document]
The example of writing the figures and markers is also given at the top of every census form.
[An image was omitted from the original document]

6. If the field provides for two or three digits, while the value to be entered into the field is represented by one or two digits, there is no need to put insignificant zeros in front.
[An image was omitted from the original document]

7. The following is prohibited when completing the field:

- To thicken the same word, figure or marker in the field;
- To write words, figures or check off the options beyond the field borders;
- To make gaps in a line;
- To use ornamental elements in writing (loops, volutes etc.)
[p.32]

8. If you need to change the figure recorded in the census form, do as follows:

- cross out the wrong digit several times as shown in the example:
[An image was omitted from the original document]
- write the correct digit next to the wrong one in a free space (beyond the field borders) available above. Below, to the left or to the right from the wrong one:
[An image was omitted from the original document]

Correction of the mark is done as follows:
[An image was omitted from the original document]

- cross out the wrong marker several times as shown in the example:
[An image was omitted from the original document]
- put the mark in the appropriate field as shown in the example:
[An image was omitted from the original document]

9. Try to avoid spoiling census forms during your work.
Completed and spoiled census forms, which have lost their initial appearance (wet, greasy, soiled, crumpled. folded, cut, torn etc.), should be completed anew.

4.2. Completing the Form "Census documents for the dwelling" (Cover)
The cover holds the census documents completed at the given living quarters, thus they are separated from the census documents completed in other living quarters.

[An image was omitted from the original document]

The cover is completed for every dwelling accommodating the permanently residing occupants (apartment, house, room in a hostel, ward, class-room, hotel suite, hospital department etc.), and for homeless persons.

The cover is not completed for the dwelling without permanently residing occupants (hotels. hospitals etc.), even if there are temporarily staying persons inside.

Before the population census the dwelling covers should be complete with the details and the phone number (you may need it to clarify certain particulars). You have already done it at the stage of preliminary packaging of the census documents (see Point 3.5.2.).

Besides, on the last page of the cover you can find an auxiliary table for determining the degree of relationship (in some instances), and the auxiliary table for determining the age by the known date of birth. You can use both when completing items 1 and 3 of Forms K and D.

If you have any questions, put them down in the "Notes" section on the front page of the cover.

[p. 33]

4.3. Completing Form S, list of persons

Form S is completed for every dwelling with the permanently residing occupants. Form S is not completed in hospitals, hotels, sanatorium, rest homes or other facilities with the temporarily residing persons (see page 35).

Having come to the dwelling, you should take out of your briefcase the cover with the number of the dwelling within the counting area written on its front page (if the cover is part of the pair, you should take out both covers). If the given dwelling is the first in the pair, you should comp1ete the front page of Form S, if the dwelling is second in the pair, i.e. its cover is inside the first cover, you should comp1ete the back side of Form S.

[An image was omitted from the original document]

On the front page top in specially assigned fields where you had to indicate the details (written on the cover of your notebook). In the field "Number of the dwelling within the limits of the counting area" you must have the number from column 6, Table 5 of the notebook. The same data are to be found on the cover.

Do not complete the field "Registration number of the form"

The field "Address of the dwelling" should be completed in detail. If it was not done during the preliminary packaging of documents (if the dwelling is second in the pair), complete the field during enumeration.

In social and medical care institutions, military barracks, penal institutions, religious institutions the address field should also give the name of the institution (Veterans' Home No. 5, or Children's Home No. 14 etc.). However, if the service staff (e.g., a doctor together with a wife and children are living in an apartment located in the building of the veterans' home where he is employed) permanently resides in an apartment or room in such an institution, the name of the institution should not be indicated. In this event the doctor's household should be enumerated separately from the veterans permanently living in the institution. It should have a separate cover, Forms S and P, and the appropriate census schedules (Forms K or D) should be completed for members of his household.

The left part of the address is completed for homeless persons, in the right side check off the "Homeless" option.

Do not complete the digital field "Code of the institution''

[p.34]

If several Forms S were completed for one and the same dwelling, the details, number of the dwelling premise within the counting area and the address details should be indicated in all census forms.

List A: Persons permanently (usually) living in the dwelling

Before completing the list, find out the following:

- The number of persons permanently residing here, whether some of the permanent residents of the dwelling have another place of residence;
- Who of the permanent occupants were absent at the enumeration point of time (at 00 hours on October 9), and why;
- Who else was present in the dwelling at the enumeration point of time.

After that you will have to determine who should be enumerated in this dwelling and recorded in List A as permanent residents (see Point 2.4.2.):

- All persons permanently living in the dwelling (including aliens and stateless persons) who were at home at the enumeration point of time:
- Permanently residing in the dwelling;
- Who arrived to work or to study for one year or more;
- Who arrived for permanent residence, or seeking asylum yet without a residence permit;
- permanent residents who have left on a mission, to work or to study for one year or less, as well as those on a holiday, under medical treatment, or on a visit etc., regardless of the period of absence ( are enumerated with the record of temporary absence);
- Students attending higher educational establishments, technical secondary schools, colleges, and living here;
- Permanent residents drafted to annual military camps (are enumerated with the record of temporary absence);
- Crew members of Russian vessels on a long voyage and permanently living here (are enumerated with the record of temporary absence);
- Permanent residents who are at the places of preliminary confinement under investigation, or with the court sentence not yet in force, or under administrative arrest (are enumerated with the record of temporary absence).

Then you have to find out the number of households living in the given dwelling.

[p.35]

If you find out that the dwelling accommodates more than ten permanent occupants (List A of each side of Form S is intended for ten persons only), or more than four temporary occupants (List B, of each side of Form S is intended for four persons only), or more than six households (section II of Form P is intended for six households only, and the census forms for the dwellings were arranged in pairs, you will have to rearrange the questionnaires and to complete separate Forms S and P per each dwelling separately.

If the dwelling accommodates several households, first enumerate all members of one household, then all members of the second household etc.

Start recording members of the household with one of the adult members then proceed to others.

The rules to observe:

- Spouses should be recorded one after another;
- Children, including unmarried adult children, should be recorded after their parents:
- If a household has several married couples with children, you should record one married couple with all its unnamed children, then the next couple and all its unmarried children etc.

For all individuals recorded in List A the following entries are made:

- Column 1: the sequence number within the dwelling;
- Column 2: only for the first member of each household (unit of tabulation) - the sequence number of the given household;
- Column 3: family name, name and patronymic (full name) of every individual:
- Column 4: the reason and period of absence (e g., "on a mission, duration - two
Weeks") only for persons temporarily absent at the enumeration point of time.
- Do not forget to put a dash in column 4 for those present at home at the enumeration point of time.
- Column 5: if the entry was made by mistake, put the mark ''Invalid entry".

If the number of persons residing in a dwelling is more than 10. List A is continued on the back side of Form S. At the same time, you should indicate the details and the dwelling number within the counting area on the back side (S2). On the front side of Form (letters) next to the number of the dwelling you should put an "a" on the margins, and on the back side (S2) - put a ''b" on the margins.

[p. 36]

List B: Persons temporarily staying in the dwelling at the enumeration point of time and permanently residing at a different place

Upon completing List A, make sure that there was no one in the dwelling beside the permanent occupants at the enumeration point of time.

If certain individuals with a different place of permanent residence were temporarily staying in the dwelling at the enumeration point of time, they are recorded in List B. Those persons are not enumerated on the Forms K and D.

If those individuals are more than 4, log them into List B on the back side of Form S. The back side (S2) should also show the details and the number of the dwelling within the counting area. On the front side of Form S (S1), next to the number of the dwelling you should put an "a" on the margins, and on the back side (S2) - put a "b'' on the margins.

In column 1: enumerate the persons one after another, beginning from No. l within each dwelling.

In column 2: write down the complete family name, name and patronymic of every such individual.

In column 3: write down the address of his/her permanent place of residence (for persons permanently living abroad - the country of residence only).

In column 4: check off the "Invalid entry" option if the entry was made by mistake.

If a person recorded in List B gives an address (column 3) in the Russian Federation, find out whether there is someone at the premises to supply information on that person to the enumerator.

If there is no one to give details, complete the control census schedule only (Form KPL).

If a person recorded in List B gives an address (column 3) abroad (even in the former
Soviet Union), complete Form V (census schedule for persons temporarily staying in
Russia and permanently living abroad), and in List B put a mark in column 5 "Reserve".

If the persons temporarily staying in the given dwelling do not have any other place of residence at the enumeration point of time, you should not log them into List A. Those persons should be recorded in List A as permanent residents of the dwelling.

After you have completed Form S, you can get down to Form P.

[p. 37]

4.4. Completing form P, housing conditions of the population

Form P is not completed for persons living in collective households and homeless persons.

Form P consists of two sections: Section I - characteristics of the whole dwelling in general. Section II characteristics of the housing conditions of each household living in the dwelling (if there are several households in an individual house, separate or communal apartment). See page 40.

Section I
Answers to questions 1-7 are recorded for the dwellings accommodating people logged in List A, Form S.

Question 1. Type of the living quarters
Check off a mark matching one of six suggested prompts.

If one household occupies the entire house regardless of the form of ownership, mark the "individual house" prompt.

If a house accommodates two or more households, put the mark matching the following prompts:

- "Separate apartment" - if they have different entrances and space for cooking;
- "Communal apartment'' - if they have a shared entrance and space for cooking.

A separate apartment is the dwellings with one or more rooms and auxiliary areas (kitchen. toilet, storage rooms. passageways) located in a residential or nonresidential building.

If the dwellings (apartment) were reconstructed into two internally isolated dwellings with two entrances, two cooking areas, two toilets, and there is no internal communication between the two, they should be enumerated as two separate dwellings (apartments).

If one household occupies a separate apartment, mark the "separate apartment" prompt.

[An image was omitted from the original document]

[p. 38]

If an apartment is occupied by two or more households, mark the following prompts:

- "Separate apartment" - if there is one tenants' list for the apartment;
- "Communal apartment" - if there are more than one tenants' list for the apartment.

If a household is living in an individual house or separate apartment, but occupies only part of the living space, hiring out the remaining part, the household is deemed living in an individual house or separate apartment.

If several households live in an apartment with two or more tenants ' lists, mark the "communal apartment" prompt. The same applies to households living in the corridor-type houses, which are not hostels.

Households living in hostels (regardless of the type of construction: apartment, corridor, section, barrack) are marked at the "hostel'' prompt.

A hostel is a residential building or dwellings in residential houses and non-residential constructions with a single warrant for the living quarters.

Service staff of social and medical care institutions living in the apartments or rooms of those institutions are marked according to the type of the dwelling they occupy, e.g., "separate apartment" or "communal apartment".

Persons staying at hotels, motels etc., are marked at the "hotel" prompt.

If a household is living in a yurta (nomad's tent), caravan, barge etc., mark the "other living quarters" prompt.

Do not ask other questions to persons living in hostels, hotels, railway cars, barges etc., get down to completing Forms K or D.

Question 2. Period of construction of the house

You will have to mark one of the following prompts:

"Before 1920" - if the house was built before 1920 inclusive,
"1921-1945" - if the house was built between 1921 to 1945 inclusive,
"1946-1956" - if the house was built between 1946 to 1956 inclusive,
"1957-1970" - if the house was built between 1957 to 1970 inclusive,
"1971-1995" - if the house was built between 1971 to 1995 inclusive,
"After 1995" - if the house was built in 1996 or later.

In the majority of instances the year of construction of a building is indicated in column 4, Table 4 of your notebook. If the year of construction is not there, ask the respondents.

When identifying the year of construction. You should refer to the year when it was put into operation. For instance, if construction of a residential house began in 1968 and ended in 1972, mark the "1971-1995" prompt.

If a building was reconstructed, built on or expanded, the year of its start-up is the year of its initial construction.

[p. 39]

Question 3. Material of the outer walls of the building

Depending on the basic material used in construction of the house, mark one of SIX suggested prompts.

If a house is built of bricks, natural or artificial stones (shell rock, sandstone, limestone, tufa, crushed stone, building tile etc.), mark the "brick, stone" prompt.

If a house is built of concrete or ferroconcrete panels, mark the "panel" prompt.

If a house is built of concrete, ferroconcrete or claydite-concrete blocks, breeze blocks, mark the "block" prompt.

If the outer walls of the building are made of wood (beams or log wood), or wood panels, mark the "wood" prompt. Mark the same prompt if a building made of wood was faced with bricks.

If the ground floor (a half or part of the house) is made of bricks or stone, and the first floor (a half or part of the house), or the walls are cast concrete structures, mark the "mixed materials" prompt.

If the outer walls are made of adobe bricks, clay, air bricks, prefabricated panels, filled frames (including those faced with bricks), cane fiber frames or other materials not mentioned above, mark the "other materials" prompt.

Question 4. Floor space in an individual house or apartment (in integer square meters)

Indicate the floor space in integer square meters without decimal digits. Put in the digits in the appropriate field (e.g., 49, 103).

When rounding the decimal numbers of the floor space to the integer, observe the following rule: if the integer part is followed by 0.5 or more, one is added to the integer, if less than 0.5, the fraction is ignored (e.g., 48.5 and 48.51 are rounded to 49, while 48.49 is rounded to 48).

The floor space of an individual house or a separate apartment is the sum total of all habitable rooms (including the area of heated and fit for human habitation attics, terraces, verandas, winter gardens, gyms) and utility areas inside the dwellings (kitchens. antechambers, lobbies, internal passageways, bathrooms and shower rooms, swimming pools, saunas, toilets, storage rooms or fitted household cupboards, as well as the space occupied by an internal staircase).

[p.40]

The floor space of an individual house or apartment does not include the area of:

- Stairwells, inner porches, elevator hall s, anterooms, corridors (with the exception of passageways inside the apartment), lobbies;
- Scarcements and heating stoves;
- Non-heated premises (verandas, balconies, loggias, terraces, attics, winter gardens, gyms);
- Garages;
- Detached kitchens, bath-houses, swimming pools, saunas, sheds, pavilions etc.

Question 5. Total number of habitable rooms in an individual house or apartment

Put down the total number of habitable rooms in an individual house or apartment, regardless of the number of households living therein. Vacant rooms in a communal apartment are also included into their total number.

A habitable room is a room designed for living purposes: part of an apartment or house separated from other premises (rooms) by partitions.

Attics, heated terraces and verandas, winter gardens and gyms geared for living on the all-year-round basis are included into the total number of rooms.

Kitchens, entrance halls, passageways, bathrooms and shower rooms, swimming pools, saunas, box rooms and other utility areas are not included into the total number of rooms.

A kitchenette is counted as a habitable room.

Question 6. Living space in an individual house or apartment (in integer square meters)

Record the total living space of an individual house or apartment, regardless of the number of households living therein.

The respective figure should be written in digits in the appropriate field; indicate integer square meters without fractions (rules of rounding - see Question 4).

The living space includes the area of all habitable rooms without the area occupied by the fitted household cupboards. The living space of vacant rooms in a communal apartment is also included into the total living space of and apartment.

[p. 41]

Question 7. Indicate the types of facilities available in the living quarters

Mark one or several of suggested prompts.

The dwellings is deemed equipped with:

- Electric lighting, if electric wiring is available:
- Electric stove, if a solid state electric stove is available. A house with a detached kitchen (permanent structure specifically intended for cooking purposes), where a solid state electric stove has been installed, is also deemed equipped with an electric stove;
- Pipeline natural gas, if a solid state gas stove is available with the pipeline gas supply.
- Liquefied (bottle) gas, if a solid state gas stove is available with the liquefied (bottle) gas supply from a collective, house, block or individual bottle units. A house with a detached kitchen, where a solid state gas stove has been installed with liquefied (bottle) gas supply, is also deemed equipped with a gas facility;
- Central heating, if it is heated by its own in-house boiler-room, collective (block), integrated or district boiler-house, or heat power plant;
- Heating from individual heating units, boilers, if the dwellings are heated by apartment water heaters, local, decentralized, small heating boilers operating on gas or solid fuel, or other sources of heating;
- Stove heating, if a stove is used as a source of heat;
- Piped water, if a distribution network of water pipes is available inside the house with the centralized supply from the water pipeline or artesian well all year round.
- A house with a detached kitchen, with a tap connected to the distribution water pipeline, is deemed a house with running water;
- If there is a hydrant in the yard and no tap inside, the dwellings is considered as a dwelling without running water.
- Sewerage, if a sewerage system for disposal of household and fecal waters to the public sewage system or an absorbing well is available inside the house.
- The dwellings is not deemed equipped with the sewerage facility if there is no piped water, or a biological toilet is used.
- Bathroom or shower room, if there is a bath or shower either in a separate bathroom, or in another area specially designed for those purposes, regardless of the type of hot water supply: centralized hot water supply, supply from an apartment water heater, including small heating boilers, gas or wood water heaters.
- The dwellings is not deemed equipped with a bathroom or shower if the bath (shower) has been installed, while sewerage and piped water are unavailable.
- Centralized hot water supply, if there is a special water pipeline supplying hot water from a communal system for household needs of the occupants;
- Hot water supply from individual water heaters, if there is a special water pipeline supplying hot water from gas or wood water heaters, apartment water heaters, including small heating boilers for household needs of the occupants.
[p.42]

If a specific facility is temporarily out of action (because of a failure, repair or other reasons), the premises are deemed equipped with this facility.

If none of the above facilities is available at the living quarters, mark the prompt "none of the indicated facilities available".

If the answer to the first question is "individual house" or "separate apartment", and the quarters accommodate:

- One household, inquire whether it rents the dwellings from individual citizens, put the appropriate mark into the form, and start completing Forms K or D;
- Two or more households, start completing Section II.

Section II
This section is completed for:

- Households living in communal apartments;
- Households living in individual houses;
- Separate apartments, if they are 2 or more in a house or apartment.

Answers to questions 1 and 2 should be recorded per each household living in the given dwelling. If it accommodates more than six households, continue completing Section II on the back side of Form P. On the back side (P2) you should indicate the details and the number of the dwelling within the counting area. On the front side margin of Form P you should put letter "a" next to the number of the dwelling, and on the back side (P2) - letter "b".

Before recording the answers put the ordinal number assigned to person No. 1 of the given household into the column "Ordinal number of person No. 1 of unit of enumeration within the dwelling of group 1, List A, Form S".

Households renting the dwellings are marked as "renting the dwellings from individual citizens".

Question 1. Number of occupied habitable rooms

Indicate the number of habitable rooms occupied by the household.

If a household occupies only part of the room, mark the ''part of the room" option.

[p. 43]

Question 2. Occupied living space (in integer square meters)

Indicate the living space occupied by the household in integer square meters, ignoring decimals.

The living space includes the area of all habitable rooms occupied by the households without the area of in-built household cupboards.

If a household occupies only part of a room, you should record its share of the entire room space. The area of the room is divided by the total number of persons living therein, and multiplied by the number of members of the given household (e.g., if a room of 24 square meters is occupied by two households consisting of 1 and 2 persons, the share of each household would be 8 square meters and 16 square meters respectively).

Check the "Invalid entry" option in the last column of Section II if the entry was made by mistake.

If one of the sides of Form P was completed inaccurately, and the other side carries data on another dwelling, put the "Invalid entry" mark in the right top side of Form P.

And now, we pass from the dwellings, constructions and buildings to the main subject of the census, i.e. people.

4.5. Completing form K "census schedule"

Both sides of Form K - the front (K1) and the back (K2) sides - comprise eleven questions each (see page 47).

Thus, on both sides of the Form K questionnaire you can enumerate two persons registered in List A, Form S living in the given dwelling.

Fill in the details and dwelling number within the counting area up the front and back sides of Form K. You must not complete Form K on persons permanently living in different dwellings.

Do not complete the field "Registration number of the form".

Put down the initials of the family name, name and patronymic of the respondent (e.g., Ivanov Aleksandr Ivanovich will be recorded as IAI). Before the initials you have to indicate the ordinal number within the dwelling indicated in column 1, List A, Form S (i.e., people should be enumerated in the sequence delineated in List A, Form S).

[An image was omitted from the original document]

[p. 44]


Question 1. Your relationship to persons you reside with (in regard to person No. 1 in this enumeration unit)

Mark one of eleven suggested prompts.

[An image was omitted from the original document]

Person No. 1 of the household (first in the list of household members) should be marked as the "Person No. 1", all other members - according to available prompts. For example, if a respondent is a son (own, adopted or step son) of the reference person, mark the "daughter, son" prompt.

If a household is represented by a single person, mark the "Person No. 1" option.

If a respondent has a different relationship to the reference family member, or different characteristics from those indicated above (for example, a nephew), mark the "other degree of relationship, characteristics" prompt.

If the answer of the respondent makes it difficult to identify the proper option, refer to the last page of the cover, "Census Documents for the Dwelling", where you can find solutions to some difficult cases.

Those who belong to the given household but are not related to person No. l (e.g., a nurse-maid, servants and their family members living in the household and contributing therein) should be identified by the "Unrelated" prompt ( e.g., the "Unrelated" prompt would be marked for a nurse-maid and her daughter).

For each member of the household (regardless of the age or marital status) living together with one or two parents in one household, in the special field of the form you should indicate the ordinal number of his/her mother (own, step or foster) assigned to her in column 1, List A, Form S (she was recorded under the same number in Forms K or D. If there is no mother in the household, and only the father (own, step or foster) is available, write down the father's number. If there is no mother or father in the household, no number is needed.

For the population of collective households:
- the person listed under No. 1 in List A, Form S is identified by the "Person No. 1" option, all others - by the "Unrelated" prompt.

If among the members of collective households there are people related to each other (e.g., man and wife in a boarding-house for elderly and disabled people or brother and sister in an orphanage), one of them should be recorded first in the dwelling, the other - second, indicating their relationship in a standard manner, while all others should be logged after them and identified by the "Unrelated" prompt.

[p. 45]

Question 2. Your sex

Mark one of two available prompts.

Question 3. Your date of birth

Ask the question precisely in this wording, do not ask ''How old are you?"

The response on the day, moth and year of birth should be recorded in digits.

For example, if the respondent was born on May 12, 1946, the entry will be "12", "5" and "1946" respectively.

After you have recorded the date of birth, without additional inquiry and with the help of the "Auxiliary table for determining the age by the known date of birth as of October 9, 2002" you should determine the age of the respondent in complete years and indicate it in the appropriate field. Children younger than one year should be identified by the "0'' years option. You will find the table on the back page of the cover, Census Documents for the Dwelling.

Question 4. Your marital status

People who are 16 years or older should be identified by the mark corresponding to one of four suggested prompts.

The "Married" option is marked for those who are married at the present moment regardless of the official registration of the marriage at the registry office.

After you have marked the "Married ' option, ask the respondent whether the marriage was registered at the registry office. Depending on the answer, mark the appropriate prompt - "yes" or "no".

For those persons who were identified as married, in a special field indicate the number of the spouse assigned to him/her in column 1, List A, Form S (he/she was recorded under the same number in Forms K or D).

If the spouse is not registered in the given household, no number should be indicated.

The "Was never married" option is for those who were never married, either in registered or unregistered (consensual union) marriage

The "Divorced" prompt should be marked for those who were formerly married, but at the present moment are not; regardless of whether the divorce was registered or not at the registry office, or those who were formerly living in consensual union, but at the present moment are separated.

[p. 46]

The "Widower, widow" option is for those who were formerly married (regardless of the official registration of the marriage), and the marriage ceased to exist because of the death of the spouse, and the person did not marry again.

As a rule, this item is not completed for respondents younger than 16 years. Only if a respondent younger than 16 years is really married, you should mark the proper option.

Question 5. Your place of birth
For persons born in the Russian Federation you should indicate only the region, territory, republic, autonomous area, autonomous region, the cities of Moscow or St. Petersburg (e.g., Saratov Region, Republic of Daghestan, Chukot Autonomous Area).

Administrative and territorial changes which occurred after the person's birth are disregarded.

For those born outside the Russian Federation - in foreign countries or in one of the republics of the former Soviet Union - indicate the state or former Soviet republic (e.g., Kazakhstan, Latvia, Poland, Canada).

Question 12. Have you been living continuously in this city (urban settlement or rural area of the district) since birth?

The continuity of residence does not depend on the registration or its type (permanent or provisional).

The "Yes" prompt should be checked off for those who have been living in this population center since birth.

The continuity of residence is not deemed disrupted by:

- The movement from one rural population center to another within the boundaries of the same administrative district;
- The movement within the boundaries of the same city (town);
- All departures from the given locality not implying a change of the place of permanent residence (on vacation, visit to friends or relatives etc.).

Check off the "No" option for those who have not been living in a population center or rural area of the district since birth, including those who were born here but left the locality for permanent residence elsewhere for some time. For example, a respondent went to study at an institute and lived at the place of learning, or served a sentence in a penal institution. The "No" option should be chosen for those who moved from urban population centers to rural areas (or the opposite) within one and the same administrative distinct.

Ask the persons with the "No" option checked off the following sub-question:

1. Indicate the year since which you have been continually residing here.

Put down the year (in digits) reported by the respondent since which he/she has been continually residing in the given town or rural area of the district. For those who left this population center for permanent residence in other places, indicate the year since which they have been living here upon their return. For example, if a person was born in this locality in 1945, left it to study in another town in 1962, and came back in 1967, you should indicate " 1967".

If you indicated years from 1989 to 2002, ask another sub-question:

2. Where did you reside in January of 1989? (Children born after January 1989 do not have to answer the question).

a) Name of the autonomous republic, autonomous region, territory, region, autonomous area of the Russian ?Federation, republic of the former Soviet Union or another state.

[p. 65]

For those who in January of 1989 resided in the Russian Federation, put down in writing the name of the autonomous republic (territory, region, autonomous region or area, cities of Moscow or Leningrad) in the respective field (box). For those who in 1989 lived outside the Russian Federation, ind1cate the name of the state (including republics of the former Soviet Urn on).

Administrative and territorial changes wh1ch took place after January 1989 are disregarded.

Do not complete the field for digits located after the entry of the place of residence made in writing.

b) Type of the population center you were residing in.

Check off the prompt corresponding to the type of population center where the respondent lived in January of 1989. If he, she lived in a town or urban-type community (industrial or resort community), check off the "Urban" option, if he/she lived in a rural locality - check off the "Rural" option. The administrative and territorial changes which took place after the departure of the respondent from the former place of residence are disregarded. For example, if the status of a rural population center where a respondent resided before departure to the present locality was later upgraded to the status of an urban community or incorporated into a town, choose the "Rural" option.

Question 13. How many children did you give birth to?

The question should be asked only to females of 15 years or older (married or single). Put down the total number of born children (disregarding the number of still-born children) regardless of whether those children are alive at the present moment or not, whether they belong to the female's household or live separately.

Adopted children and children in care, as well as husband's children from the former wedlock are not registered in the number of children born by the given female.

If a female does not have any children, "0" is recorded.

Females younger than 15 years should not answer the question.

If in one of the dwellings of your counting area you meet a person temporarily staying in the Russian Federation and permanently residing abroad, who at the enumeration point of time was present in the area, he/she should be enumerated in List B, Form S, and Form V should be completed for him.
