I. About the all-Russian population census
As stated by the Federal Law on the All-Russian Population Census, the census of population shall be conducted in the Russian Federation at least once every ten years. As stated by Decree No. 1074 of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 23, 2009 On Organization of the 2010 All-Russian Population Census, the next All-Russian population census is scheduled for October 14-25, 2010. Remote and hard-to-reach areas, where transportation is impeded during the period of October 14-25, 2010, are to be covered by the All-Russian population census from April 1 to December 20, 2010.

1.1. General principles of population census
Population census completes two tasks - counts the population and provides information on demographic, economic and social characteristics of population of the whole country and of each residential area of the country.

Population census principles:

Total coverage of population with census. It is necessary to account each resident with no exception (with no double count either), regardless of sex, age, right of residence in a certain area or dwelling;
Obtaining information directly from population by questioning particular individuals;
Self-determination of individuals while responding to the questions. It means that census is only conducted on the basis of respondents' answers without asking for their documents;
Protection of data, obtained in course of population census. Considering this, "Confidential. (Guaranteed by the recipient)" is written on each population census form. According to the Federal Law on the All-Russian Population Census (Article 8), "The information on population, stated in population census forms, shall be considered confidential and shall not be disclosed or disseminated. The said information shall only be used for generating official statistical information", that is published only as summary statistics. None of information on one particular individual, family or household can be published. None of individuals, engaged in the census process, can disclose the information received in the course of the population census. Individuals, having access to the information on population, stated in population census forms, who committed a loss or disclosure, or falsified (encouraged the falsification of) the said information, shall be liable under the Russian Federation legislation. The obligation not to disclose the information on population received in the course of the population census shall be envisaged by contracts signed with individuals engaged in the census process.

1.2. Organization of the population census
The whole territory of the country is divided into census precincts. Each of them is headed by a head of a census precinct.

Each census precinct is divided into instructor precincts; they are headed by instructors.
Each instructor precinct is divided into enumeration precincts. An enumerator, in charge of collecting data on population living in the territory of the precinct, is assigned by each enumeration precinct.

Besides, permanent enumeration precincts, where individuals (who have no dwelling, do not want to let an enumerator in, etc.) can come and answer the questionnaire of a population census form, are formed.

[Pg. 3]

II. General principles of obtaining information on population
The All-Russian population census shall cover all the individuals (regardless of citizenship), residing in the territory of the Russian Federation, including temporarily absent population.

Remember!
Census Papers (Forms L, P, V) and List of Individuals (Form S) are filled in according to respondents' words, without providing any documents that confirm the accuracy of their answers. In case any of the respondents is absent, population census papers are filled in according to the words of other householders (excluding data on national identity).

All the questions shall be asked exactly as they are written in population census forms,
and in the same sequence as well.

If a respondent fails or refuses to answer a question, it shall be left blank. Whereas the enumerator's task is to persuade the respondents to take part in the population census, making its purposes and value for the country as a whole and for every citizen clear for them.

Variants of possible causes for refusals and the solutions are given in Section IX "Difficult Situations".

[pg.4]

2.1. Population census papers

[Figure of the multiple census forms omitted.]

Population census forms to be filled in by enumerators at population surveying are briefly described below.

Population census forms, approved by Order No. 1990-r of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 16, 2009:

Population Census Form L contains 25 questions and is filled in for the individuals who constantly live in a premise. Separate Form L is filled in for every person.
Population Census Form P contains questions, characterizing a dwelling (building) as a whole (Section I), each living premise (Section II) and living conditions of each household within this living premise (Section III).

Those, who are residing temporarily in the Russian Federation as of the date of the population census, but live permanently abroad, are questioned according to the abridged program, given in Population Census Form V. Form V is for eight people - four on each side of the blank.

Control and accompanying documents, approved by Rosstat Order No. 332 of December 31, 2009:
Population Census Forms Cover / Cover Form separates population census forms, filled in in different living premises. Cover form contains brief information on the All-Russian population census of 2010 for enumerators and respondents, as well as auxiliary information on filling in Form S and Questions 1 and 3 of Form L.

List of Individuals / Form S is a control document which contains the address of a living premise and a list of the individuals, subject to the 2010 All-Russian population census. Table 1 is completed for those who permanently (normally) reside in a living premise, while Table 2 is completed for those who temporarily stay in a living premise as of the population census date, but permanently reside in another place. These tables shall be completed for each living premise before surveying the individuals according to population census forms. They are meant to check if all the residents of the living premise are enumerated in the corresponding census forms, as well as to verify if the residents are written in accordance to their households correctly.

List of Supervisors for Census Forms Filling / Form KS is a control document, needed for avoiding double counting of population. It is compiled if an individual has two places of residence, and the one, where the enumerator conducts a survey, is chosen for the census.

Census Participation Certificate / Form SPR is given (on completion of surveying and filling in of population census form) to all those,who have no place of permanent residence, that is - to the homeless (they are enumerated according to Form L), to all those, for whom Form V is made, as well as to those persons, having more than one place of residence, who report that they may be at another place of residence during the period till the end of the population census and control visiting. Besides, Form SPR is given at population enumeration of remote and hard-to-reach areas, to those who are intended to leave a hard-to-reach area for the second place of residence, or move to a new one during the period of general population census and control visiting (October 14-25, 2010).

This document certifies that an individual has taken part in the census. If in the course of the population census, a person shows a certificate, verifying that he/she has already been enumerated at another place, a census taker shall not question such people once more and include data on them in the population census forms at his/her enumeration precinct.

Accompanying Form / Form N is a technical document which contains information on enumeration precinct in general (if enumeration precinct consists of only one settlement or part of one settlement), or information on a part of enumeration precinct, which belongs to one settlement (if enumeration precinct consists of several settlements).

More detailed information on how to fill in population census forms contains in Section IV "Population Census Forms Filling".

2.2. Date and term for collection of information on population
To get exact statistic data, all the information on population, entered into population census forms, is collected at one and the same date of population census.

Information on population is collected as of the moment of population enumeration at 00:00 (local time), October 14, 2010.

[pg.5]

Population shall be questioned with regard to this moment of population enumeration.

For example, children which are born after the moment of population enumeration (after 00:00, October 14, 2010), shall not be considered, but population census forms shall be compiled for those people who die before population census forms are filled in and are alive at the moment of population enumeration (a census taker should be maximally tactful when questioning people who go through tragic events at the moment).

Collection of data on population is performed from 14 through 25 October by means of questioning of population and filling census papers during visiting of residential and other premises where questioned people reside (stay).

Date of population census conduct for remote and hard-to-reach areas is established for the period from April 1 to December 20, 2010, in accordance with the terms of population census conduct specified by the joint Order of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia and the Ministry of Regional Development of Russia "On approval of the list of remote and hard-to-reach areas and terms of conduct of the All-Russian Population Census of the Russian Federation of 2010 in these areas". In the district that fully belongs to hard-to-reach and remote areas, population census is conducted at the date set for the whole district. If a district partially belongs to hard-to-reach areas, the date for the population census is set for the moment of survey conduct in a particular settlement.

2.3. Population census place
During the population census all the population (regardless of citizenship), permanently residing in the territory of the Russian Federation, including those who are temporarily absent, is subject to account. Also, people, who live permanently in another state, but reside in the territory of the Russian Federation as of the moment of population enumeration (00:00, October 14, 2010), are subject to the population census according to the abridged program.

To enumerate population a census taker shall visit all residential premises in the territory of his/her enumeration precinct, as well as other premises where people live or may live. These residential and non-residential buildings are listed in Table 4 of Enumerator's Notebook and marked on Schematic plan of enumeration precinct. Visiting each premise, an enumerator shall conduct a survey of the population, residing there.

The following is considered residential premises:

a) an apartment in an apartment house (including an apartment in an apartment-type dormitory);
b) an individual (single-apartment) house (hut, lodge, cottage or other single-apartment building);
c) an apartment in a dormitory (of nonapartment-type);
d) accommodation in a hotel or other places of temporary stay with permanent residents;
e) any other premise, adapted for living (trailer, cabin, shed, barge, etc.);
f) ward, department, etc. (depending on the way of account in the corresponding organizations) in establishments of social and medical purpose (children's homes, boarding-schools for orphans and children without parental care, special (correctional) boarding-schools for orphans and children without parental care, children's boarding-schools, rest homes, in hospitals for patients with chronic diseases, etc.), in military barracks, detention facilities, religious organizations.

Homeless people and those with no fixed abode are also enumerated.

2.4. Population
Every person shall be enumerated. Population is surveyed and registered in accordance with households.

[pg.6]

2.4.1. Household
A household means persons, residing in a dwelling house, apartment, room, or in a part of a dwelling house or apartment, jointly providing themselves with foodstuff and other necessary means of living and combining their income either wholly or partially. These persons can be connected with ties of kinship, or relationship resulting from marriage, or not be relatives. One household may comprise both relatives and non-relatives.

A household may consist of one person, living independently and providing himself/herself with food and all the necessary things for living.

Most households are family households, consisting of relatives.

People shall decide by themselves if they live as one household or as different households. However one should take into account that:

- Those who rent a residential premise from individuals are not a part of the household of the premise's owner; they are considered separate households;
- Those who permanently reside in dormitories, hotels, recreation and retreat centers are regarded as independent households;
- Workers (service staff), residing in company-owned premises and apartments (rooms), in institutions of social and medical purpose, where these people work (for example, doctors in hospitals, teachers in children's homes, etc.), make up separate households.

Every such premise can be occupied by people making up one or several households (depending on whether they run the house jointly or separately).

Households, residing in typical living premises (types of living premises "a" - "e" of clause 2.3), are called private households.

Persons, who permanently reside in institutions of social and medical purpose (children's homes, rest homes, hospitals, etc.), military barracks, detention facilities, religious organization (type of living premises "f" of clause 2.3), form collective households. These are groups of people, living together, usually united by a common objective, subject to common rules and eating together. It should be pointed out that the workers of these establishments who reside in official premises are not included in collective households and shall be enumerated according to the normal procedure, as private households.

Homeless persons compose separate households (households of homeless persons), which may consist of a single person or group of persons, connected by kinship or not.

2.4.2. Who shall be enumerated
Population is enumerated at the place of their permanent (common) residence.
The place of permanent residence is the place where the respondent daily spends the most part of his/her night's repose. Such place may match or not match with the address, where a person is registered (resides).

All the persons, permanently (commonly) residing in the premise, including those who are temporarily absent at the moment of the census conduct, are subject to enumerating in each premise.

Coming to a living premise, a census taker shall first find out who of the persons present lives there permanently.

[pg.7]

- Persons, permanently residing in the specified premise and having gone on business (to another settlement of Russia or abroad, including business trips within the line of the state power bodies), to work under contracts with Russian or foreign companies (including rotation-based work) or to pursue their education for a term up to 1 year, as well as having gone for treatment, recreation, on a visit to relatives and friends, for religious pilgrimage, etc., regardless of the term, are enumerated at the place of their permanent residence in Russia with note on temporary absence in Table 1 of S form.

[pg.19]

While visiting apartments of his/her precinct census taker checks number of every apartment written down in column 3 of table 5 against the apartments' numbers that are available in the houses of enumeration precinct.

If number of apartment in a house doesn't match the number stated in the record book, census taker writes down relevant notes to the column 3 of table 5 of the record book.

For example: column 3 contains apartments numeration from No. 1 to No. 70, and number of each premise within the limits of enumeration precinct, i.e. from No. 1 to No. 70, is written in column 4. While visiting apartments a census taker discovered that apartments No. 2 and No. 3 were factually united into one apartment No. 2, i.e. apartment No. 3 is factually absent. Line of the apartment No. 3 is crossed out, and relevant note is made. Subsequent numeration of the premises within the limits of enumeration precinct in column 4 of table 5 stays put.

If numeration of the apartments doesn't match data of column 3 in full or to a considerable degree, you shall correct these data by accurate crossing out of wrong apartment numbers and writing down the right numbers next to them. Data of column 4 of table 5 stay put.

When planning daily itinerary a census taker must take into consideration the instructor's list of "difficult" premises provided by precinct police officer. A census taker shall visit these premises being accompanied by a precinct police officer according to the schedule prepared in advance.

Data is written down as cumulative total, i.e. on the first day of questioning results of the first day are written down, on the second day -- sum of the first and second days, and so on.

IV. Procedure for population census papers completion

4.1. How to complete machine readable population census documents (forms L, P, B and N)
Completion of machine readable population census documents is the key stage of the All-Russian population census 2010. Further on the quality of census papers processing, carried out by means of IT-equipment, and the correctness of the obtained census results depend on the quality of the census taker's work.
By filling in of the census papers a census taker has to be accurate and attentive. In order to perform responsibilities in due order a census taker has to:

1. Only use population census papers received at enumeration precinct.

2. Fill in population census papers only with black gel pen, given by an instructor. Filling in of census papers with a pencil is forbidden!

When filling in of census papers it is necessary to use a special writing surface provided with the brief case. It is forbidden to use a pack of unfilled or filled forms as a writing surface.

[pg.23]

3. Fill in population census papers attentively in order to correct entered numbers and marks as little as possible.

4. Record the answers into specially designated fields of the population census documents. Words in printed letters shall be written in rectangular fields with black frames. Fields with point frames shall be filled in with numbers. Fields with black square frames of size 5x5 mm shall be filled with marks. Fields shall be filled strictly within specially designated frames.

5. Entering of numbers and marks shall be done in strict accordance with patterns:
[Image omitted.]
Patterns of numbers and marks are provided at the top of each population census form.
It is very important for further processing of completed population census forms to follow the patterns of numbers and marks and write the words in the center of a rectangular field legibly and in relatively large letters.
Population census forms that have a large number of corrections and that were filled in with deviations from the present rules shall be rewritten by a census taker upon delivery of material to instructor at the end of the census.

6. If there are two or three symbols space for the answer, and the value to be recorded contains only only one or two symbols, there is no need to put any zeros ahead of such value:
[Example image omitted.]
7. During filling in of a field it is forbidden to:
Outline the words, numbers and marks in the fields several times;
Write words, numbers and marks beyond the designated frames and lower parts of symbols shall not be written outside the frames or even in the other field;
Form line breaks;
Apply picturesque elements (loops, curves etc.).
[Example image omitted.]
8. Where applicable, a number entered into a census paper can be corrected by:
Crossing this number our several times in accordance with the pattern on the form (whole filed shall be crossed):
[Example image omitted.]
Writing a new number in blank space (beyond the field frames) above the corrected number. In exceptional cases, it is allowed to write the corrections to the right or left of the corrected number. It is forbidden to write corrections to the right or left of the corrected number if there is a possibility to write the corrections above it. Corrections written to the right, left or bottom, are not read automatically and require additional manual work of operator which complicates and delays processing of the population census materials.
[pg.24]
[Example image omitted.]
9. Correction of marks shall be made as follows:
Cross the wrongly written mark several times in accordance with the pattern (the whole field shall be crossed):
[Example image omitted.]
Put a mark into the required field in accordance with the pattern:
[Example image omitted.]
10. In case a wrongly completed field for printed letters shall be corrected:
The written word shall be crossed with two lines;
The correct value shall be written as far as possible within the field frame; in exceptional cases when there is no free place within the field designated for answer, the correction is written strictly over the top frame of the field as near to it as possible.

Census taker shall write legibly and make no mistakes when filling in the rectangular field with printed letters, as during automated processing of the population census papers this information will be used for screen coding.

Attention! Use of correction fluid for making corrections in the population census forms is strictly forbidden! It is forbidden to use clips, staplers and other grips for fastening the population census papers! This can result in impossibility of the further processing of census papers, and will require rewriting or refilling of the forms.

1. A person registered in the Table 1 of the Form KS was not found in the Table 1 of the Form S and census papers.
In this case the number of the premise within the enumeration precinct from the Form S is written in the column 1 of the Table 2 on the back of the Form KS in the section "Note on verification at this address".
2. A person registered in the Form KS was found in the Table 1 of the Form S and census papers.
This person shall be excluded from the census papers as registered by mistake in the following order.
2.1 In case if only one person, on whom the Form KS is drawn, lives in the premise: - all papers (the Cover, forms S, P, L) shall be withdrawn, the columns 2-12 of the Table 5 of the census taker notebook (form 1) shall be left blank, and the column 13 shall be filled with "second dwelling".
2.2. If one or several households live in the premise:
- all columns in the row of the Table 1 of the Form S corresponding to the information on this person shall be crossed, and "Form KS" is written in the note above the line;
- the Form L is withdrawn;
- the value in the column 2 "Number of persons in the household" in the Section III of the Form P is corrected due to its decrease because of the crossed out person (crossed out persons, in case of several persons). The corresponding changes shall be made to the "Number of persons permanently residing in this premise" on page 1 of the Cover form.
2.3. In case if the person whose data is entered into the Form KS is the first one enumerated for the household:
- all columns of the Table 1 of the Form S corresponding to the information on this person shall be crossed, and "Form KS" is written in the note above the line, the numbers in columns A and B for all other household members shall be corrected;
- the Form L for this person shall be withdrawn, and the following shall be done in the Form L for other members of this household: information in the fields A and B shall be corrected; a "first enumerated" shall be marked in the question 1 for the person that was enumerated after the withdrawn, the others shall be marked in accordance with their relation to the person marked as the first enumerated; all numbers of mother (father) (in question 1) and of husband (wife) (in question 5) shall be corrected if necessary;
- the value in the column 2 "Number of persons in the household" in the Section III of the Form P is corrected due to its decrease because of the crossed out person (crossed out persons, in case of several persons). The corresponding changes shall be made to the "Number of persons permanently residing in this premise" on page 1 of the Cover form.
In all cases specified in the section "Note on verification at this address" of the Form KS, the number of premises within enumeration precinct from the form S is written to the column 2 of table 2.
3. Wrong address reported, or there is no such house or apartment.
[pg.57]

A note that there is no such address, or that the wrong address was stated is made in the section "Note on verification at this address" in the column 3 of table 2 of form KS.
When the verification is over and the the table 2 of form KS is filled in, a census taker shall put the date of verification and his signature in the lower part of the back side of form KS.
The information from table 5 of a census taker's notebook are updated on the basis of control papers verified during the census.

VII. Population census at the permanent precinct

7.1. Population surveying and census documents filling in
Enumeration of persons who for some reasons did not an opportunity or didn't want to meet with a census taker at the place of their permanent residence is performed at the permanent precinct.
If an individual asks to participate in population census by phone, a census taker shall try to convince him to come to the permanent precinct personally to take part in population census. The applicant shall be enumerated by phone only in case of flat refusal.

When questioning people at the permanent precinct the Cover, form S, form L and form P are filled in. The form V only is filled in for people that temporarily stay in the territory of the Russian Federation.

If a person who came to a permanent precinct has more than one place of residence, then the census papers are filled in for his permanent residential place, and the Form KS is drawn up for another place of residence, and such person is provided with a Census Participation Certificate (Form SPR) in case if a respondent says that he/she may stay at another place of residence (other from the place where he was enumerated) during the period before October 29, 2010 (till the end of the population census and control visiting).

If the whole household is enumerated, then all sections shall be filled in the forms S and P; if a separate household member is enumerated, then the surname, first name and patronymic of any member of the household to which he belongs and their relationship shall be recorded in the Table 1 of form S under the surname of this person in brackets.

Upon completion of the census, the columns 5-12 shall be filled in in the Table 5 of a census taker's notebook, and the number of enumeration precinct which comprises the living premise shall be marked in the column 13, and it shall be marked whether all household members were enumerated at the permanent precinct, or there are some household members that participated in the census at the living premise. The filled in census papers shall be kept inside the Cover, and "Enumerated at the permanent precinct" or "Enumerated by phone" mark shall be made on the Cover's face.

At the end of each day a census taker of permanent precinct shall pass the filled in census papers to the instructor or the permanent precinct head, and they shall classify the papers by enumeration precincts according to the addresses written in the Form S, and pass them to census takers.

After receiving the census papers on those who participated in census at the enumeration precinct, the enumeration precinct's census taker shall verify these papers.

If the census papers on one or several persons were passed from the permanent precinct, and the census taker has determined that this person(s) was not enumerated yet, then his(their) census papers shall be kept in the Cover for the premise where he/they reside, and, if necessary, additions to the papers corresponding to this premise that have been filled in already shall be made.

If the census was already taken in the premise, then each new person shall be written in the form row of the table 1 of form S, the number of household to which he belongs in written in the column A (if there are several households in the premise), and the number (following the last number in this household) within the premise, to which this(these) person(s) is(are) related shall be written in the column B, the surname, first name, patronymic and the ancestral relationship with the first written member of this household (in brackets) shall be written in the column 1.

[pg.58]

For example:
5 persons were recorded in Table 1, they compose two households, and the added person belongs to the first household, two members of which have been already enumerated. In this case this person can be added as follows:

number 1 shall be written in the column A, number 3 -- in the column B, and the surname, first name, patronymic and the relationship with the first recorded member of this household (in brackets) shall be written in the column 1. The census paper of Form L is enclosed after the last paper for this living premise. The household index number within the premise (column A) and the index number of a person within the household (column B) from columns A and B of the Table 1 of form S shall be written in it. At this, it is necessary to verify whether the index numbers of mother (father) and husband(wife) of the household members are filled in correctly in view of the added information.

If the form P delivered from the permanent precinct contains information on dwellings and households, which have already been enumerated by enumeration precinct's census taker, then the form P delivered from the permanent precinct shall be withdrawn.

The changes shall be made in the form P, drawn for this premise before, with a view of information delivered from the permanent precinct, or a line for a new household shall be added in the section III, or the value of quantity of household residents in the question 2 of section III about the household, to which the persons were added, shall be corrected. Also it is necessary to verify information on the number of persons on page 1 of the form Cover.

If there is no free space in the section III of form P (6 households are written in), then the second form P shall not be withdrawn. The details shall be written on it, and the corresponding alterations shall be made. You shall write down "1" in the "part for official use" A on the P2 side of the first form P, "2" in the form "2" etc. When the alterations and amendments are made, the second form P is enclosed after the first form P.

If the census papers for the whole living premise were delivered from the permanent precinct, then the following situations are possible:

1. The census taker has already enumerated the residents of this premise -- in this case the matching of all information shall be verified. To remove the mismatches -- write down to the table 1 of form S all those who were not enumerated, change the information on the number of persons on page 1 of the form Cover, and enclose in correct order all necessary census papers, verify the correctness of filling of mother's (father's) number and husband's (wife's) number -- if they are available.
2. Another persons are already enumerated in this premise -- investigate this case with the instructor.
3. The census taker did not have time to visit this premise yet or people refused to participate. Census taker shall write details on the form Cover and census papers, and put the census papers delivered from the permanent precinct back.

If the address is written incorrectly, all records in table 5 of the notebook shall be reviewed as well as census papers that are already filled in. These persons might have already been enumerated in the other premise, in this case the received papers shall be crossed out. Otherwise the situation shall be investigated with the instructor.

[pg.59]

VIII. The activities after the end of population census (from 26 to 29 of October)
After the period of population census is over all census papers shall be delivered to instructor.

8.1. Establishment of results
The material shall be verified and prepared before delivery:

- Compare the number of filled in census papers and the number of enumerated persons for each premise with the records in the columns 5-12 of table 5 of the notebook (paying attention to the records on the need of the second visit in the column 13 of table 5, so that no person, no household is omitted during the population census);
- Carefully review the material to remove defects and fix the incorrect or incomplete records;
- Check the quality of the filled marks, the writing of numbers and words. All amendments to the documents shall be accurate and legible. Generally, the corrected census papers shall not be rewritten.

After verifying that all persons are enumerated, and the information for all premises is entered into the table 5 of the notebook, census taker counts the numbers in 5-12 lines of the table on each page to receive a total number for the line "Total for page accounted by census taker" and in general for enumeration precinct - for the line "Total for enumeration precinct. Accounted by census taker".
The received result for enumeration precinct in table 5 line "Total for enumeration precinct as of the last census day" shall be written in the table 3 "Results of control visiting".

8.2. Control visiting, delivery of materials
On the day specified by the instructor, a selective control visiting will be performed at each enumeration precinct, and the census taker shall take part in it. During the control visiting the instructor jointly with the census taker will verify information on all residents of premises covered by control visit.

The corresponding documents shall be filled in for everyone who had to be enumerated in this premise, but was omitted during the census taking. The census papers for those who were enumerated by mistake shall be withdrawn and delivered to the instructor together with other papers when the work is finished.

Procedure for correcting of census papers during control visit includes the following:
person that is subject to be enumerated in this premise, but was omitted by census taker, shall be recorded at the end of the list of table 1 of form S. His household number shall be written in the column A, and the current number within this household -- in the column B. If two households were written in the table 1, and the omitted person belongs to the first household, then the relationship (in brackets) with the first person recorded for the household under the first number, and the initials of the first household member (for example, "son-in-law of Petrova I.K.") shall be indicated after having written his surname, first name and patronymic in the column 1. A separate census paper of form L shall be drawn for the omitted person, it shall be enclosed after the last paper for this living premise;

In case of erroneous registration of persons not subject to enumeration in this premise (for example, those who left for military service, studies, moved to another place of residence etc.), this person and the household index number within the premise (column A) and person index number within the household (column B) shall be crossed out from the table 1 of form S, and the the following reason for crossing out shall be written: "Recorded by mistake -- left for studies" etc. The form of form L is crossed and withdrawn. This person shall be crossed out of the form V with an indication of reason, and the mark "Field is not accounted" shall be indicated for this person;
The number of persons in a household shall be verified in the question 2 of section III of form P, and the total number of persons in a living premise is verified on page 1 of form Cover;
If a certain premise was omitted, the form Cover shall be drawn with the number following the number of the last premise within the enumeration precinct from the column 4 of table 5 of the census taker notebook, and all necessary census papers shall be filled in.
[pg.60]

When the control visiting is finished census taker at instructor's order shall correct the columns 5-12 of table 5, cross the number being corrected and write down the correct number nearby.

After that the results shall be counted and recorded in lines "Total for page with account of control visiting" and "Total for enumeration precinct II. With account of control visiting". Those numbers serve as basis for columns 2-8 of table 3 "Results of control visiting".

Before delivery census materials shall be packed in a brief case according to the order set in the next paragraph of this section. Census taker shall personally deliver all census papers and the means of material and technical support to instructor at the stated time.

8.3. Packing the papers in brief case
Census taker shall fill in the "Accompanying form" (form N) received from instructor before packing the census papers in brief case. The Accompanying form separates the census papers of one enumeration precinct from another during further processing, and within enumeration precinct -- separates the census papers of different settlements. A separate Accompanying form is drawn for an enumeration precinct in urban settlements. In rural areas, a separate Accompanying form is drawn for each rural settlement or a part of a settlement that comprises the enumeration precinct (including settlements without permanent residents).

The numbers of census, instructor and enumeration precincts shall be written on top of the form N. The "Brief case No." and "Form No." fields shall not be filled in.

The address of enumeration precinct from the census taker's notebook shall be written in the special "Filled during delivery-acceptance of papers" field, and one of the marks "urban settlement" or "rural settlement", as well as a mark "part of a settlement" or "whole settlement" shall be indicated.
Census taker shall indicate the date of delivery of census materials to instructor, write down his surname, and put his signature in the "Census taker" line of "Delivery-acceptance of papers" table.
If the enumeration precinct consists of:

- part of a settlement, then the Accompanying form shall be enclosed first before papers of the first premise within the enumeration precinct;
- one settlement and a part of other settlement, then the corresponding Accompanying forms shall be enclosed: first -- before the first list of settlement residents, and second -- before the papers of the first premise of the part of other settlement;
- several settlements, then the corresponding Accompanying forms shall be enclosed before the papers of the first premise of each settlement.
[pg.61]

[Omitted example image.]

After the Accompanying form N for a settlement (or a part of it) the census papers shall be enclosed in the following order. All Covers with census papers shall be packed in numerical sequence of the premises within one enumeration precinct. The papers inside each Cover are packed in the following order: form S, then form L filled for this premise. Census papers of form L inside each Cover are enclosed in numerical sequence of the households, and within each household -- in numerical sequence of persons. After that the form P filled for this premise shall be enclosed.
When it comes to the last person of settlement (or a part of it) all the forms B for this settlement shall be enclosed. If an enumeration precinct includes several settlements, forms B drawn for relevant settlement shall be enclosed upon enumeration of the last person of each settlement.

All census papers enclosed thereby shall be packed in a brief case, and census taker's notebook, taker's certificate, and the scheme of enumeration precinct shall be put in the brief case's pocket. Census taker shall personally deliver all census papers in the brief case, as well as wasted and unused census papers, other census documentation and the material and economic supplies to instructor in time prescribed by the latter.

IX. Difficult situations
Census taker's work is very important for successful conduct of the population census. An census taker shall treat his/her work with maximal responsibility and read attentively the information below. These recommendations will help a census taker to communicate with population.

During the period of the 2010 All-Russian population census the staff of the MIA of Russia implements a complex system of measures to provide security of census takers, including enhanced territory patrolling and prevention of crime, duty in premises of census and instructor precincts, accompanying of census takers to living premises for surveying of socially deprived population.
In case any difficulties occur, a census taker shall be assisted by an instructor, a census precinct head and an authorized official on issues of population census, representatives of local self-government bodies and internal affairs bodies. In such a way safety and security are provided during population census conduct.

[pg.62]

However, despite all these measures, each census taker shall know general rules of behavior in extraordinary circumstances - at occurrence of "difficult" situations, those making information collection more difficult, and, probably threatening health and safety of the census taker himself/herself.

[The following was presented in table form. The "Situation decription" was in column 1 and the "Census taker's actions" were in column 2.]

Actions of census takers in difficult situations:
Situation description

Census taker's action

The living premise door is closed - the apartment or house is empty, the residents are out

It is necessary to leave a filled information sheet, containing data on your visit, as well as the address and telephone number of the permanent precinct

You are not allowed into an apartment (house) because of the residents' fear to be robbed

It is necessary to tell a person (from behind the shut door or by entry phone) the address and telephone number of instructor and permanent precincts, where he/she can check that you are their census taker and also inform a person where he/she can go to be enumerated outside the premises. Try to deliver a census information sheet to this apartment

You are allowed into the apartment (house), but:
- residents are in a state of alcoholic or drug intoxication;
- person who let you in is mentally ill and/or rudely aggressive; deaf; suffers from a contagious disease

It is necessary to leave the apartment immediately, trying not to cause its residents aggression. Put a mark into your notebook and tell the instructor that this apartment shall be visited together with a neighborhood police inspector

- there is a row, scuffle or, on the contrary, celebration (feast), taking place in the premise

You shall go away and come again at another time, having left a census information sheet, if possible

- You are invited for tea, to be a guest, to have a talk

You shall speak with the respondent in calm and well-wishing tone, on the topics related to the census and census paper questions only. Invitations for meal shall be politely refused; refusals can be explained by hard work mode and necessity to visit lots of other respondents

- the door is opened by a child, adults are out

It is necessary to explain that you are a census taker and you need to enumerate the whole family by questioning someone of the adults, to find out when they are home, to leave a census information sheet and to come once again

- funerals

If you get to the funeral, you shall be maximally polite and regardful not to hurt people, experiencing grief. Behaving so, you shall try to persuade them to take part in the census at any time till the end of the survey conduct, convenient for them

Respondents refuse to take part in census papers filling, explaining this by the fact that they are busy

It is necessary to try to reach an agreement with them on revisit date and time and to tell them about the possibility to undergo the census at the permanent precinct at time that is more convenient for them

[pg.63]

General recommendations
1. During population survey a census taker shall be dressed simply, neatly, and, depending on weather, rather warmly. You shall not wear too bright, expensive clothes and jewelry, take a lot of money with you, etc.
2. You should visit population only with a census taker's brief case, but not with a tote bag - this may put the residents on the alert.
3. You shall always have the telephone number of the nearest police-station and a whistle for the case of abnormal situation.
4. A census taker shall be polite, tactful and patient at work. It is necessary to understand that in the course of the census one can meet people of different natures and tempers, and the census taker's task is to find a way to communicate with everybody and to complete his/her work on time.
5. Coming to a stair case landing of an apartment house, one shall ring at all the apartments on this landing, so that the residents know that not only they are visited. Similar things shall be done for shared apartments. You shall introduce yourself to all, who have come out at your ring, explain the aim of your visit, show your Certificate of census taker and your passport, if needed, and then agree on the order of visiting apartments located at this staircase landing.
6. Census taker shall try, if possible, not to speak with respondents on external topics. Census taker shall not argue or, moreover, conflict with the respondent. Indulging in personalities or insult can only be met by a well-intentioned attempt to defuse tension. If this fails, one shall apologize for bothering, say goodbye politely and call another day.
7. After the survey is completed, a census taker shall thank each respondent for participation in the 2010 All-Russian population census. Thus, importance and significance of his/her participation in the population census are underlined once more.

Explanations, which population will probably need during census papers filling, are given below.
The survey begins with filling of Cover Form, in which census forms are put and which is needed to separate population census forms filled for one premise from those filled for another one.
Then S form - "List of Individuals" - is filled in. Filling of this form allows checking if all the residents of the living premise are enumerated in the corresponding census forms and if the census forms for people, residing in different premises, are not mixed.
L form - "Population census form" - is filled in each living premise for the individuals who constantly live in this premise.
Then P form - "Population census form," containing data on a residential house, a particular living premise and living conditions of each household within this living premise, - is filled for the whole living premise.
V form - "Population census form" - is filled for those, temporary staying in the territory of the Russian Federation and permanently residing abroad.
At surveying women with children under the age of 3 years, a census taker may have difficulties in filling questions 10.1 ("Point out all sources of income you have") and 11.1 ("Did you have any income-yielding job in the period of October 7-13, 2010?") of Population census sheet of L form.
The table below will help to determine what marks shall be made for these questions and in what cases, if a woman worked at the enterprise (organization, establishment) before the birth of her child, is on care leave in view of the birth of her child and continues to be a staff worker of the enterprise (organization, establishment):

[pg.64]

[Omitted table of example outcomes.]

[pg.65]

Communicating with people, a census taker will probably have to answer questions of population concerning the conducted census. Here are some variants to answer these questions.

"What is the population census needed for?"
Population census is a traditional statistic procedure. Population census is needed to receive objective data on social, demographic, economic and national characteristics of population.
The data of population census will help the government to work more effectively and pursue a correct social policy. It is not a political action, but a public one.
Your participation in the population census is your contribution to the development of the country. It is not difficult, you run no risks. You have no reasons to refuse to take part in population census.
The population census results have a long-term perspective. They will benefit to decision-making not only on Russia's overcoming the crisis, but also on improvement of the quality of life at the post-crisis stage.
So for example, the results of the previous 2002 All-Russian population census were used by the state to work out demographic and social programs, national projects in public health, education, agriculture and housing. But the situation with population has changed significantly over the last years and there is a demand for actualization of data and comparing them with those of the latest census.

"What is the reason for conducting a population census, when all the information on people is available at passport offices, tax offices, etc.?"
There is information on population at different administrative sources, indeed, but they all contain incomplete information on part of population only. So for example, there is data on population registration at passport offices, but in fact these people may live at another address or even in another subject of the Russian Federation. There are no children under 18, as well as people, deprived of voting rights (disabled, convicted), in the voters' lists.
Besides, this data does not cover the whole spectrum of information on the population, whereas it is collected during censuses and makes it possible to view different population characteristics in combination, for example education level and native language.
There is no population register in our country so far.

"What questions are asked during census?"
The questionnaire or census schedule are prepared to get the information to satisfy all those who require it - minister, businessman, academician, student. The census schedule is widely discussed. In 2009, the All-Russian Statisticians Meeting was organized to discuss the census and consider its major organizational and methodological documents. In our country, such a practice to discuss the questions of census has been applied since the census of 1897.
The census schedule and methodology of registration of all the categories of population takes into account the recommendations of international organizations to provide the comparability of census results worldwide. The results of All-Russian population census compose the results of the World Census.
Many questions of census papers became habitual already; they repeat during each new census. It is done on purpose as the succession of schedules shall be kept to compare the previous censuses' results with the new census information, and monitor demographic and social trends of our society.
Main subjects of the census schedule have been listed in Article 6 of the Federal Law "On All-Russian Population Census". They are the following: age, marital status, education, number of children, nationality, language proficiency, residence, living conditions, provision of amenities, employment, migration. The contemporary economy conditions reqiure to ask a question about the sources of income. However, pay your attention to formulation of questions and prompts: nobody asks what income you have--the question relates only to sources of income.

[pg.66]

"Who needs my information?"
Upon processing of census papers no specific information on people will be published except consolidated results. The principle of anonymity for disclosed information is applied. Therefore, you have no reason to worry.
If you think that your information could be used against you, pay your attention to what is written on a census paper: "Confidentially (guaranteed by information recipient)". All census papers have this note. Any information obtained during the census is protected by law and no census makers--from the census takers to Head of the Russian Statistics Committee--is enabled to disclose your information (Art.8 of the Federal Law "On All-Russian Population Census" and Art.7 of the Federal Law "On Personal Data").
Your surname, name, patronymic, and address are to be recorded in census papers not to get mixed up while processing the information, so that, for example, a member of your family is not registered among people from another apartment. All your data in census papers is depersonalized.
Census poses no threat to you.

"You proceed asking your questions, but nothing changes for better..."
However, would you like some changes for better? And if you refuse to participate, how it will change our life for better?
If you feel bad, we need to let our state know, and take measures to improve your conditions. That is why precise information is needed.
If the previous All-Russian population census 2002 was not conducted, the state would not have basic data for development of national projects and social programs.
Therefore, we need to answer the questions, and thus, give this true information to change situation for the better.

"I don't like our authorities; therefore, I don't want to take part in the census."
It has nothing to do with authorities. Census does not relate to any authorities. Nobody suggests you to vote for somebody. Giving the census information, you provide help to make any right decisions not only to our administration, but for businessmen and community. Census isn't political but a social matter. It does no harm to anyone.
Many prominent persons took part in census due to their well understanding of its social and economic importance. E.g., L.Tolstoy was a census taker during the Moscow Census of 1882; and A.Chekhov took part in the Sakhalin Census of 1897.
Earlier, in the 18th century, M.Lomonosov developed his "Academic Questionnaire" with questions for collection of some statistical data, which characterized some separate Russian regions and the whole country in total.

"Whom do you enumerate?"
The census shall be conducted with regards of everyone who constantly (permanently) resides in the Russian Federation. Permanent residential place is a place where a person daily spend the most part of his/her night's repose. Such place may match or not match with the address, where a person is registered (resides).
The Russian citizens who are abroad due to their long-term official trip (including their family members) are subject to the census too.
According to the abridged schedule, the residents of other countries shall be enumerated, if they were in Russia as of the census (00:00, October 14, 2010).

"At what age a person can take part in the census?"
The whole population of country is subject to the census, regardless of age. Since 14, the person may respond a census taker questions independently; and information about younger children shall be given by their parents.

[pg.67]

"What documents do I need for the census? Do I have to show them to a census taker?"
No document shall be shown during questioning; all the information shall be written according to oral information received.

"May one person living in the apartment answer for all members of his/her household?"
Yes, if you possess correct information. If you don't, you need to inform a census taker about, and advise him/her of the time when all people are at home; then he/she will come again so that all people who reside together with you can answer a question on their nationality.

"What about census for persons with no fixed abode?"
The persons with no fixed abode will be enumerated as all the Russian citizens by questioning and filling the census papers in any places where a census taker meets them. As a rule, the places of their regular stay are known to the police. To avoid the double counting, persons with no fixed abode will receive certificated on their enumeration. Other census taker will not question them being presented such a certificate.

"Are the questioned persons obliged to allow a census taker into their apartments (house)?"
No, if they don't want to, they can go out to their staircase or yard of a private house for communication with a census taker, as well as come to their permanent precinct for enumeration.

"Is there any liability for refusing to participate in the census?"
According to legislation, taking part in the All-Russian population census is a social responsibility of any citizen. No penalties will be applied to those who refused to take part in the census.
However, in the USA, England, and Czech Republic, such people shall pay a serious fine according to their legislation. In Turkey, on the day of census, citizens are forbidden to leave their homes as they shall wait for their census taker. The Bolivian authorities took things a step further. This Latin American country closes its borders, cancels the trains and municipal transport; and all the inhabitants are ordered not to leave their home. It's due to the most part of Bolivians being employed in so called informal economy, and pays no taxes; therefore, the authorities fear that they will not collect true and complete data concerning the social and economic state of population. In Argentine and Chile, the law prescribes closing all places of entertainment, shops, restaurants, and service rendering enterprises.
In Russia the only argument for taking part in census is person's understanding that he/she is a part of society which needs the information about itself.
In addition legislators believe that their trust in population will provide true responses.

"May I not answer some questions of census paper?"
The census schedule is aimed at getting the results for all the questions both in terms of the country and the settlement where you reside. By refusing to answer some questions, you will prevent collection of full and correct information that influences you and your children indirectly. Absence of information on persons of certain age or social state can distort the general structure of this group of population, and this generation respectively. In general results of the census will contain no information on you and people like you.
Nevertheless, you shall know that there will be no penalties for you not answering any of the questions.

"I refuse to answer the question on my marital status"
Your data will be used for statistic purposes only. The Russian Statistics Committee is not interested in you specifically, but in general population conditions. No harm will be inflicted, if you provide this information.

[pg.68]

"I don't like to provide any information about my sources of income"
There is no question about size of income in the census papers but only about sources of income from the listed ones. In general form, this data will allow reflection of the population economic structure--the share of pensioners, housewives, and welfare recipients, etc. in each age group.

"How do you know if a respondent provided true or untrue answers?"
The worldwide principle of censuses is trust in population. A census taker will not ask any confirming documents, and will write your responses based on your words. Due to the best practice worldwide, the true answer is more convenient than a purposeful false. As a rule, share of jokers is insignificant and does not influence the census quality.

"Will any penalty be applied for providing false information?"
No penalty. Answers in census papers will be written from the words of questioned persons only--this is one of the main principles of the All-Russia population census. No document confirming your information shall be presented to your census taker.
