Question G - State or foreign country of birth

When taking the respondent's declaration, the enumerator will consult the list of codes found on the left-hand side of the questionnaire; for native-born Brazilians, the enumerator will record the digits corresponding to the State declared, and for naturalized Brazilians and foreigners the code of one of the foreign countries specified on the list. The enumerator will write the name of the country in full only when no corresponding code is listed.
Code 28 (Serra dos Aimorés) should be recorded for persons born in this area in litigation between the states of Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo.

Column 9: Birth Place

89. If a person reports to have been born in this village, record Code 1 in the blank space (not in shaded boxes which are reserved for coding in office). Persons reporting to have been born in this village are those born in the same village in which you are conducting your enumeration. The birth place of a person is the place of usual residence of the person's mother at the time of birth. For example, for a person born in (a) a hospital or maternity home outside the usual place of residence of the mother or (b) mother's village or (c) some other place where the mother had gone for a short visit, the birthplace of this person will be the place in which the mother normally lives and not the place of the hospital, the mother's village or place of visit. If however, the mother's length of stay outside her place of usual residence was one month or more or the mother had the intention of staying in the new place for one month or more the "actual place of physical birth" will be considered as the birthplace of the person in question. For example, suppose Bossadine who normally resides with her husband in Bak Kheng went to Kandal Koh to deliver her child in her mother's house, and returned within 15 days the birthplace of the child will be Bak Kheng and not Kandal Koh.

89.1 If however, Bossadine stays in Kandal Koh for one month or more, then the birthplace of her child will be Kandal Koh and not Bak Kheng.

89.2 For those persons reporting to have been born outside the village in which you are conducting your enumeration, record name of the district in which the village of birth falls and also write name of province of that district within brackets. For those born outside Cambodia write name of the country of birth.

Persons reporting to have been "born in this village" are those born in the same village in which you are conducting your enumeration.

The "place or country of birth" is determined in relation to the place of habitual residency of the mother of the interviewed person when this person was born. The place of birth should not be confused with the hospital or place where the birth occurred.

The possible situations are:

In this canton: consider this option if, at the moment of birth of the person

[p. 141]

the mother resided in the same canton, where the person currently lives. In this case mark option 1 and continue to question 7.

In another canton: consider this option if at the moment of birth of the person, the mother resided in another canton, distinct from that where the person currently resides.

If this is the situation mark option 2 and proceed to ask for the name of the canton and of the providence of residence of the mother at the moment of birth of the person and note the answer that corresponds.

If the informant does not exactly know, note any reference such as a neighborhood or district that allows you to determine later on the correct location. Once the information is obtained continue to question 7.

In another country: this option must be considered when the person was born in another country; in which case ask for the name of the country and mark it if it appears on the list. If it is not found in the list, continue by noting it in the blank spaces.

Question 7. Where did your mother reside when you were born?

With this question we want to know the municipality or country where the interviewee resided at the time of birth, for which the question focuses on residency of the mother at this time, since the person could have been born in a different municipality or country from where the mother resided permanently.

[] 1 In this municipality -- Continue with question 8.
[] 3 In another municipality or country

In which municipality, province or country
Municipality____
Province____
Country____

[] 9 Does not know


(Note) Do not make any notes.

The question should be asked in the following manner: Where did your mother reside when you were born, in this municipality or in another municipality or country?

If he/she responds "in this municipality", this means that it is the same municipality where you are doing the interview, for which you should mark box 1 and continue with question 10.

If, on the other hand, he/she responds "in another municipality or country", box 3, then we ask in which municipality, province or country, noting the names of the municipality, province, or country on the line.
In the case where the municipality and the province correspond to Cuba, you will not write the name of the country. This will only be used for the case of a person born in another country.

If the person tells us that he/she does not know in which municipality his/her mother resided, you will mark box 9, "does not know".

You should take into account that we are referring to the current Political Administrative Division, which means, Santiago de Cuba, Las Tunas and not Provincia Oriente [Eastern Province]. This is valid for countries: Not URSS, but rather Russia, Belorussia, Lithuania, etc.

Section IV. Personal Data.

Question 7. Where did your mother live when you were born?
This question intends to find out the place (settlement) or country where the interviewee resided at birth; therefore, the question focuses on the mother's residence at that moment, given that they could have been born in a different municipality or country than the one in which the mother permanently resided.
The question must be asked as follows: Where did your mother reside when you were born? Here or in another place or country?
If they answer "in this place or settlement," it means that it is the same one where the interview is being conducted so box 1 is checked and you will move on to question 8A).
If, on the contrary, they reply that they were born "in another place, settlement or country", box 3, then subsection B of question 7 itself is asked, asking them in which place or settlement, municipality, province or country they were born in, recording the name on the blanks provided.
In the event that the settlement, municipality and province are in Cuba, the name of the country will not be noted. This will only be used for those born abroad, where only the name of the country will be noted.
If the person replies that they do not know where their mother resided when they were born, check box 9 "Does not know" and move on to question 8A.
It should be borne in mind that the requested information refers to the current Administrative Political Division, i.e. Artemis and Mayabeque in place of Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Las Tunas and not Provincia de Oriente. This is also true for Country, so USSR should not be recorded. but rather Russia, Belarus, Lithuania, etc.
The boxes for codes that are located next to Place or Settlement, Municipality, Province and Country should be left blank, as they will be filled in by the Provincial Census Department.

Question 31: Where was (NAME) born?

For the purpose of the census, the place where a person was born is the place where the mother of that person lived when she gave birth, even if the person was born in a hospital, clinic or house outside of the mother's house during that time.

There are three (3) possible options for this question:

Here, in this Municipality. In case that the person was born in the same municipality in which he/she is being surveyed. After choosing this option skip to question 32.
In other Municipality, in the case that the person was born in a different municipality than the one he/she is being surveyed. In this case you should ask:
The name of the municipality or municipal district in which the person was born, and then record it in the corresponding boxes.

Question 30. Where was [the respondent] born?
For census purposes, a person's place of birth refers to the place in which the mother of that person lived when he/she was born, even if the person was born in a hospital, clinic or house outside of the mother's residence.
This question has three possible answers:

  • If the person replies that he/she was born here, in this municipality, fill in code 1 and then skip to question 34.
  • If the person replies that he/she was born in another municipality, fill in code 2 and continue with question 31.
  • If the person replies that he/she was born abroad, fill in code 3 and then skip to question 32.
  • For example: If the informant replies that Manuel was born in La Vega Hospital and her mother lived in Cotui, then Manuel's place of birth is the municipality of Cotui.
Question 32. In which country was [the respondent] born?
This question must be asked to all members of the household that answered in question 30 that they were born abroad. Ask the informant for the country's name in which he/she was born and then record it in the corresponding boxes.

Step 11: Continue with the second part (questions 11 to 13) of section 4, information about the population / B : General characteristics.

[A copy of part of section 4B of the census questionnaire is omitted here.]

Tips:

  • Follow the order sequential of the questions.
  • Remember the leaps in questions 11, 12, and 13.
  • Question 11 must have all of the categories read, like this:

  • Where was (Marco Méndez)born: in this city? , in another place of the country? or in another country?
  • In this example the informant was born in Bolivia, immediately you must ask the year in which he arrived in Ecuador.

  • Question 12 must have the categories read, like this:

  • In what place does (Marco Méndez) habitually live?: in this city?, in another place of the country? , or in another country?
  • In this example the informant lives in this same city, or marks x, in category 1 and continues with the next question.

  • Question 13 must have the categories read, like this:

  • 5 years ago, in what place did (Marco Méndez) habitually live?: in this city? , in another place of the country? or in another country?
  • In this example if the informant lived in another place of the country, mark x, in category 2.
  • Ask, In what Province?, in what county? and in what city or rural parish?
  • For the example, 5 years ago he lived in the province of Guayas, Guayaquil county, and Guayaquil City; write down these names.

(A) You should not register anything in the fields for the use of INEC.

  • Remember that if you are enumerating a child under 5 years of age, you should not ask question 13, just mark x in option 4 and continue with the next question.

Question 10 - Place of birth

117. "Where was this person's mother living when he or she was born?"

118. The question is put in this way because we wish to know the mother's usual place of residence at the time and not the location of the hospital in which she may have borne the person.

[p. 13]

119. If the person was born in Fiji write first the name of the province. On the second line write the name of the town, if the place was urban. If the place was rural, write the village or settlement.

120. It is important for the census to distinguish between urban and rural areas. In this sense 'urban' means the whole of the urban or built-up area, not just the gazetted [officially listed] city or town boundaries. For example, Kinoya is urban even though it is outside the Suva City boundary. If you receive an answer such as "Ba" or "Nadi" or "Labasa", ask whether the person is referring to the urban or to the rural area surrounding it. Add the letter 'U' for urban or 'R' for rural as appropriate.

121. If the person was born on one of the small islands such as those in the Lomaiviti, Lau, or Yasawa groups write the name of the island rather than the name of the village.

122. If the person was born outside Fiji write the name of the country - for example, India, New Zealand, Tonga, Western Samoa, Tuvalu, etc.

Question D10 - Place of birth

117. Ask,
'Where was this person's mother living when he or she was born?'

118. The question is put in this way because we wish to know the mother's usual place of residence at the time and not the location of the hospital in which she may have borne the person.

[p.21]

119. If the person was born in Fiji write first the name of the province. On the second line write the name of the town, street and ward if the place was urban. If the place was rural, write the village, settlement or locality. Describe the village, locality and settlement such that coders in the office may identify the geographical location on the map. Descriptive phrases that classify and qualify are best. eg. Vunivau settlement, east of Labasa Town; Vunivau settlement, near Dama, Bua, [the former is within the new Labasa Urban boundary while the latter is a settlement in Bua province]; Tomuka settlement, off Naikabula Road, Lautoka [is now part of Lautoka urban].

120. It is important for the census to distinguish between urban and rural places. In this sense 'urban' means the whole of the urban or built up areas, not just the gazetted city or town boundaries. For example, Kinoya is urban even though it is outside the Suva City boundary. If you receive an answer such as 'Ba' or 'Nadi' or 'Labasa' ask whether the person is referring to the urban or to the rural area surrounding it. Add the letter 'U' for urban or 'R' for rural as appropriate.

121. If the person was born on one of the small islands such as those in the Lomaiviti, Lau or Yasawa groups write the name of the island together with the name of the village.

122. If the person was born outside Fiji write the name of the country - for example, India, New Zealand, Tonga, Western Samoa, Tuvalu etc.

[7] Population structure
These statistics on the structure of the population describe Finnish and foreign citizens permanently resident in Finland at the turn of the year.

Background country
During 2012, Statistics Finland has adopted a new origin classification. A similar classification is already used in the other Nordic countries. The origin and background country are determined based on the country of birth data of the person's parents. Using the origin classification it is easy to distinguish between persons born abroad and born in Finland with a foreign background.
Data on persons that died before 1964 have not been entered into the Population Information System of the Population Register Centre. There are nearly 900,000 persons among the Finnish population who have been born in Finland and both parent's country of birth is unknown because the parents of these persons have died before the Population Information System was established. People born in Finland before 1970, whose parents' background is not known, have been concluded to be persons with Finnish background if their native language is a national language (Finnish, Swedish, Sami). All such persons who have at least one parent who was born in Finland are also considered to be persons with Finnish background. The background country for all persons with Finnish background is Finland.
Persons whose both parents or the only known parent have been born abroad are considered to be persons with foreign background. Persons who have been born abroad and whose parents' data are not included in the Population Information System are also considered to be persons with foreign background. Persons born in Finland before 1970, whose native language is a foreign language have been considered to be persons with foreign background, as have persons born in Finland in 1970 or after this, whose parents' data are not included in the Population Information System.
If both parents of a person have been born abroad, the background country is primarily the country of birth of the biological mother. If a person only has knowledge of a father that was born abroad, the background country is the country of birth of the father. If either parent's country of birth is unknown, the background country for persons born abroad is their own country of birth. For persons born in Finland, whose parents' data are unknown and who have been deducted to be with foreign background, the background country is unknown.
For children adopted from abroad, the adoptive parents are regarded as the biological parents. Thus a child adopted from abroad by persons born in Finland is a person with Finnish background and their background country is Finland.

Country of birth
All persons entered in the Population Register are indicated a country of birth, which is determined on the basis of the mother's permanent home country at the time of birth. This means, for example, that the country of birth of Estonian immigrants born before Estonian independence is the Soviet Union. Similarly, the country of birth of people who were born in areas that Finland has subsequently ceded is Finland even though the area no longer is Finnish territory. Country of birth is indicated according to the form of government at the time of birth.

Finnish background
All persons who have at least one parent who was born in Finland are considered to be persons with Finnish background. People born in Finland before 1970, whose parents' background is not known, have been concluded to be persons with Finnish background if their native language is a national language (Finnish, Swedish, Sami). The background country for all persons with Finnish background is Finland.
For children adopted from abroad, the adoptive parents are regarded as the biological parents. Thus a child adopted from abroad by persons born in Finland is a person with Finnish background and their background country is Finland.
See a more detailed definition of the origin classification: origin and background country.

Foreign background
Persons whose both parents or the only known parent have been born abroad are considered to be persons with foreign background. Persons who have been born abroad and whose parents' data are not included in the Population Information System are also considered to be persons with foreign background. Persons born in Finland before 1970, whose native language is a foreign language have been considered to be persons with foreign background, as have persons born in Finland in 1970 or after this, whose parents' data are not included in the Population Information System. Persons, whose mother tongue is not Finnish, Swedish or Sami are regarded as foreign-language speakers.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image
5. Where were you born?

Two boxes and a dotted line have been provided in this column for recording the respondent's birthplace. In this census the birthplace of a person is the place of usual residence of the person's mother at the time of birth. For example, for a person born in (a) a hospital or maternity home outside the usual place of residence of the mother, (b) the hometown of the mother's mother or (c) some other locality where the mother had gone for a short visit, the birth place of this person will be the locality in which the mother normally lives and not the locality of the hospital, residence of the mother's mother or the place of visit.

If however, the mother's length of stay outside her locality of usual residence is six months or more or the mother has the intention of staying in the new place for six months or more the "actual place of physical birth" will be considered as the birthplace of the person in question. For example, Akua Mansa who normally resides with her husband at New Tafo went to Accra to deliver her child in her mother's house. In such a case the birthplace of her child will be New Tafo and not Accra. If, however, she stays in Accra for six months or more, then the birthplace of her child will be Accra and not New Tafo.

Put a cross in the first box marked "in this town/village" for all persons who were born in the same town or village in which you are conducting the enumeration. If, for example, you are conducting your enumeration in Bawku and the respondent was born in Bawku, you will mark this box. Remember that birthplace is not the same as hometown. In large localities like Accra, remember that the suburban localities like Madina, Akweteman, Kopevi, McCarthy Hill, Alogboshi, Kokroko and Haatso are not part.

pg. 48

of the town proper and should be treated as "in another town/village in Ghana" but in the same region.

Mark the second box -"in another town/village in Ghana"- for all respondents who were not born in the town or village in which you are conducting the enumeration, but in some other town or village in Ghana. After marking the box, you should write down the name of the town/village in which the person was born and the Region in which this locality is situated.

Note that there are nine regions in Ghana. These are:

(a) Western
(b) Central
(c) Greater Accra
(d) Eastern
(e) Volta
(f) Ashanti
(g) Brong-Ahafo
(h) Northern
(i) Upper

Remember that Greater Accra Region comprises the following council areas:

(a) Accra City Council
(b) Terna District Council
(c) Ga Local Council
(d) Dangbe Local Council
(e) Shai Local Council

In appendix 2 you will find a list of all the traditional areas in Ghana by region with the names of all the ruling Paramount Chiefs. This will enable you to determine the region in which some towns or villages lie. Ask those who do not know the Region in which they were born to give you the name of the present Paramount Chief of the area in which they were born. The information contained in this appendix will help you to determine the Region in which the person was born.

Born outside Ghana- For a person who was born in a town or village outside this country, you will specify the country but not the town in which he was born. For instance, if the respondent was born in Lome, you should write down Togo; if he was born in Lagos, write down Nigeria; if he was born in Ouagadougou, write down Upper Volta.

In the case of persons from the neighbouring French-speaking West African countries who cannot tell you the actual country in which they were born, ask them to give

pg. 49

you the name of a big town, or the headquarters of their Commandant, in the country in which they were born. Refer to appendix 3 and use it to obtain the name of the country.

Avoid the word "French" which persons from French-speaking African countries usually give in response to the above question. If you get such a reply, probe further and get the correct response, i.e. the name of the country.

Again avoid names of the continents like Africa, Europe, America, or name of regions like the Middle East. North Africa, Latin America.

General characteristics

Ask these questions for all of the persons, independent of their age or other situation:

Question 10: Place of birth

For persons born in the country, note the complete name of the municipality where he or she was born.

For persons born in another country, note the complete name of the country where he or she was born.

When there is doubt because the place has suffered some change in jurisdiction, note the place of birth according to the jurisdiction to which the place belonged at the time that the person was born.

In the case that the person only remembers the name of the department where he or she was born and not the municipality, you should note this, preceded by the word "department," so that it is not confused with the municipality that can have the same name.

If the person does not remember the name of the municipality but only the name of the locality (village, group of houses, or farm) in which he or she was born, you should note the name and the department where it is located. If the person definitely does not know in which department he or she was born, you should write "unknown."

Ask, "In which department, municipality or country were you born?"

[A graphic of box 8, "place of birth," is reproduced on the right-hand side of the page.]

If the person you are enumerating was born in the municipality in which you are interviewing him/her, mark an X in the circle for the 00 option, "In this municipality," and leave the rest of the question set blank.

If the person was born in a different municipality, write the name and department of the municipality.

The box for country is only for people born abroad. Write the year of their arrival.

Column P07: Place of Birth
For the purposes of the census, for "place of birth" you should indicate, for persons born in the Republic of Guinea, the prefecture that they were born in. For those [born] outside of the Republic of Guinea, you should indicate the name of their country of birth. Using a series of 2 questions, you should be able to gather the information you are looking for.

For example: "Were you born in the Republic of Guinea?" Yes/No
If the answer is "Yes," ask the following question: "In which prefecture?"
If the answer is "No," ask the following question: "In which country?"

Note: For all persons born in Conakry, write "Conakry." If the person does not know the answer, it is possible to use a written document (birth certificate, national identity card, passport, etc.) to obtain the information.

In particular, if such a document has already been presented to you during the data collection related to the date of birth, take advantage of this to take down the place of birth at the same time. Also take down the prefecture if the person was born in Guinea, or the country if he/she was born outside of Guinea. To record the answer you receive in the questionnaire, write out completely and very legibly the name of the prefecture of [ ] or the [name] of the country of birth in the space provided.

It is possible that an individual might indicate he/she was born in Guinea without being able to specify the prefecture in which he/she was born. In this case write: "Guinea" without any further details. In the same way, if an individual says he/she was born outside of Guinea without being able to specify which country of [birth], rather than leave the space blank (i.e., undeclared answer) write [country un]specified.

Note: To distinguish between Mali, a prefecture in Guinea, and Mali, the Republic of Mali, follow these specific guidelines:

a) For people born in the prefecture of Mali, write "pref. de Mali";
b) For people born in the Republic of Mali write "Rep. du Mali."

A) Personal and Geographic Characteristics

This section is for all residents in the dwelling. It is intended to find out information about the composition of the population according to their relationship with the head of household, sex, age, civil status, whether the mother is alive, place of birth, year of arrival in the country, nationality, and permanent residence in 1969.

Ask questions 1-9 of everyone who is enumerated, without exception and according to the detailed instructions below.

Question set 7: What municipality and department were you/was the person born in?

Keep in mind that the placement of this question may cause the respondent to confuse it with the previous question. The previous question (question set 6) investigates whether or not the enumerated person's mother is alive; this question (question set 7) seeks to discover the enumerated person's place of birth, and not the place of birth of that person's mother.

[p. 34]

Mark an "X" in the box corresponding to the word "here" if the place of birth coincides with permanent residence on the census date. Leave the spaces for municipality or department blank.

A) If the enumerated person was born in a different municipality in Honduras ask the name of the municipality where he/she was born and the name of the department the municipality is in. Write the information in the appropriate space.

B) If the enumerated person was born in another country, ask the name of the enumerated person's country of birth and write it in the appropriate space.

Section F. Characteristics of the persons

On the heading of each page of this section write the names of the persons that make up this household one-by-one, maintaining the order established in 'composition of the household' (question 2, section D).

You will begin with head of household [male or female] as person number 1 and will continue with the rest of the members of the household.

Always ask about the spouse or partner of the head of household; never assume that he or she does not exist. Whenever possible, in the case where both are present, you will ask the questions of each person separately.

For all persons
[Questions 1-6 were asked of all persons]

Question 4: Where were you born?
You should complement the question by reading the three possible answers:

A) In this municipality? Mention the name of the municipality where you are enumerating?

B) In another municipality in the country?

C) In another country?
[p. 47]

Only one of them should be the response, marking the corresponding box.

If the answer is 'in this municipality', mark the box 'yes' and continue with the next question. If this is not the case, mark the box 'no'.

If the answer is 'in another municipality in the country', write the name of the municipality on the line B.1; the name of the department on the line B.2 and continue with the next question.

If the answer from the person is that he or she was born 'in another country', write the name of the country in which the person was born on the line C.3; write the year of arrival in Honduras in the box that corresponds to space C.4.

It is probable that there are informants that answer some person(s) was or were born in a hospital or in a place that is different from where his or her mother resided at the time. In this case, as place of birth of the person should be registered as the place where the mother resided when the person, about whom the information is being given, was born.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Question 205: Place of Birth
Ask and write the name of the province and regency/city where the household member was born. The enumerator is only responsible for clearly filling in the name of the province and regency/city. The codes for the province and regency/city will be entered by the Team Coordinator.
Place of birth is the province and regency/city where the mother lived at the time of the household member's birth. The administrative boundaries of the regions where the respondent was born should be the latest ones which are used at the time of the enumeration.
[p. 115]
Example:

1. A mother resides in East Aceh (Province NAD); her child is born in the city of Medan (Province of North Sumatra). Then the child's place of birth is considered East Aceh (Province NAD).
2. Andika was born in 1990 in Manokwari. In 1990 Manokwari was in the Province of Irian Jaya. For Q205 enter the Province for Andika as West Papua and the Regency as Manokwari, because since 1999 the Regency of Manokwari became part of the Province of West Papua.

[Graphic illustrating example is not presented here.]

3. Tuti was born in 1985 di Cimanggis, Regency of Bogor, West Jawa. In 1985 Cimanggis became part of the Regency of Bogor. For Q205 fill in the place of Tuti's birth as Province West Jawa and City Depok, because since 2004 Cimanggis changed administrative districts and became part of the City of Depok.

[Graphic illustrating example is not presented here.]

[p. 116]
If a household member was born abroad, write the name of the country where the household member was born in the space for province/state and strike out the word "province"; enter a dash "in the space for the regency/city. A code for the country will be entered by the Team Coordinator (See Book 7: Codes for Ethnicity, Language, and Administrative Area).
[Graphic illustrating example is not presented here.]

The enumerator must take care in writing the name of the province/country or the regency/city so that he/she does not write in the boxes provided for the codes. If the name of the place of birth is long, use a common abbreviation or just write as much of the name as possible so that the writing does not extend into the boxes.
For Example: BARITO SEL (Barito Selatan), KALTIM (Kalimantan Timur), SULBAR (Sulawesi Barat), MALUT (Maluku Utara), TAPUT (Tapanuli Utara), TOBASA (Toba Samosir), OKU (Ogan Komering Ulu). If there is an acronym or an abbreviation that is standard or standard in the region, then use that.

If the enumerator knows that the name of the regency/city given by the respondent is not the name of a regency/city, then he/she should ask whether (mention correct name of regency/city) is the one intended by the respondent.

[Questions 5-9]
The purpose of Questions 5 to 9 is to study migration patterns, both short-term and long-term. The resulting information will give us a picture of where people are moving to and from and their characteristics in terms of age, sex, education, occupation, etc.

5 What is your place of birth? _____________________________

Give the place where your mother lived at the time of your birth.
If Ireland (including Northern Ireland), write in the county.
If elsewhere abroad, write in the country.
Comparing a person's place of birth (Question 5) and his or her current place of usual residence (Question 7) gives an indication of the extent of longer-term migration. Likewise, if a person lived outside the country for a continuous period of one year or more (Question 9) it is possible to determine the person's country of origin and the period he or she took up residence in Ireland.
Nationality (Question 6) was asked for the first time in the 2002 census and is important in the context of a more culturally diverse Ireland. [Note: give a table of usual residents by main nationality groupings.]
Location (Question 7) is a key characteristic that is used with other data to build an accurate picture of our population. It is the basis for the annual population estimates and for population projections. It is also key in determining changes to electoral boundaries.
By comparing a person's usual residence one year before the census (Question 8) and their residence at census time (Question 7) we get an indication of the extent to which people change residence. The responses to this question are particularly useful in monitoring internal migration within the State.

Question 6-10. The purpose of questions 6 - 10 is to study migration patterns, both short-term and long-term. The resulting information will give us a picture of where people are moving to and from and their characteristics in terms of age, sex, education, occupation etc.

Comparing a person's place of birth (question 6) and his or her current place of usual residence (question 7) gives an indication of the extent of longer term migration.

[Examples omitted.]

Location (question 7) is a key characteristic that is used with other data to build an accurate picture of our population. It is the basis for the annual population estimates and for population projections. It is also used to determine changes to electoral boundaries.

By comparing a person's usual residence one year before the Census (question 8) and their residence at Census time (question 7), we get an indication of the extent to which people change residence. The responses also provide data on the extent of internal migration within Ireland.

[p. 29]

The question is comprised of several parts:

Each person is asked if he is an Israeli born or a foreign born.

Israeli-born is asked about the country of birth of his father and his mother.

Foreign-born is asked about his year of migration to Israel and his country of birth.


12.1 Country of birth

a. If the name of the country is printed in the list, mark an X in the appropriate box. If the name of the country is not listed, write it in the boxes under the list.

b. Write the name of the country according to current borders and not the borders as used to be when the person was born.

This rule applies to the changes taking place during the last years in different countries, like in Eastern Europe, and to localities in which the governance moved from one country to another. The people born in these countries are asked to write the current name of the country or republic.

Examples:

1. A person who was born in a city, that at the time of his birth belonged to Germany, but today is part of Poland, has to mark the answer "Poland" in the questionnaire.

2. A person who was born in the city of Aden, which is currently belonging to Yemen, will mark "Yemen" in the questionnaire.

3. A person who was born in the Soviet Union is asked to write the name of the republic, like Latvia. If he does not know the name of the republic today, he should write "Former Soviet Union".


Comment: If a foreign born wrote his father's or mother's country of birth, leave his answer as is.

2. Instructions for answering questions :

d. Country of origin - country of birth, parents' country of birth
The information received from the data on country of origin, combined with the answers to questions on various issues, is of great value for understanding the social and economic status of each population group, and the changes that occur in it, based on the countries of origin and seniority in Israel.
Question 3.100-3.100.1 - What country were you born in, according to current borders?
- Type the country of birth according to current borders. Current borders are the borders existing today between countries (and not the borders that existed between countries when the person was born).
Examples:

- If a person was born in a city that belonged to Germany when he was born, but today belongs to Poland, type 'Poland' in the questionnaire.
- If a person was born in a place that was part of the former Soviet Union, type the name of the independent country where this place is today. For example: if a person was born in Kishinev, type 'Moldova'.
- The former Soviet Union included various states which are independent countries today. Russia is one of these countries. Do not use the answer 'Russia' as a substitute for the Soviet Union. You must find out what country the respondent was born in.

5.20 General
Question 7 to 14, which comprise Section 2, provide some basic characteristics about the individual and are to be answered for all members of the population except those exempted as special cases. Special Cases are always handled by Special Census Takers and instructions for identifying and handling these Special Cases are given in Part 6.


5.26 Question 12 - Birthplace - (a) Parish in Jamaica, (b) Foreign country

[Image omitted here]

Ask the question this way: "In what parish was your (was his/her) mother residing when you were (he/her was) born?"
If the reply is a birthplace in Jamaica, mark the relevant parish at 12 (a); if the birthplace is abroad, then a response position at 12 (b) is to be marked. (See Appendix 3 for the classification of foreign countries).
Note that there are several places in Jamaica which bear the same name; if therefore the individual states his birthplace by name of the locality, do not assume the name of the parish; ask the respondent to tell you what parish the particular location is in.
Special attention must be paid to answers given identifying the parish as Kingston or St. Andrew particularly the urban part. Many people in Jamaica refer to these parishes interchangeably, generally as "Kingston".
When a respondent answers "Kingston", find out if he really means the parish of Kingston and not the urban and suburban area commonly referred to as "Kingston".

Section 4 - Birthplace and residence

These questions are to be asked of all persons.

These questions are intended to study internal migration or the movement of people between the parishes in Jamaica. Movements apply only to those taking place between parishes and residence abroad is not regarded as a move for the purpose of studying internal migration.


5.48 Question 4.3 Birthplace
If the person was born in Jamaica, indicate the relevant parish and if abroad, the relevant country. (See Appendix III for the classification of foreign countries).

Note that there are several places in Jamaica which have the same name; if, therefore, the individual states his/her birth-place by name of locality, do not assume the name of the parish, ask the respondent to tell you what parish the particular address is in. Special attention must be paid to answers given, identifying the parish as Kingston or St. Andrew, particularly the urban part. Many people in Jamaica refer to these parishes interchangeably, generally as "Kingston".

When a respondent answers "Kingston" find out if he really means the parish of Kingston and not the suburban area commonly referred to as "Kingston" but which is in fact St. Andrew.

Increasingly, persons resident in Jamaica are going abroad to have their babies. Where a child is born abroad to a woman whose usual place of residence is in Jamaica the place of birth for that child is the parish of usual residence in Jamaica. Only if the mother was resident abroad (i.e. living abroad for 6 months or more or intending to live abroad for 6 months or more) is the birthplace to be regarded as abroad.

Section 2: Birthplace and residence
[All persons]

These questions are very important for the main reasons that they:
(1) Will establish the "de jure" population on which the final Census tabulations will be based. The "de jure" count identifies persons at their usual place of residence.

(2) Are important for studying movement of the population between parishes in Jamaica. Movements apply only to those taking place between parishes. Residence abroad is not regarded as a move for the purpose of studying internal migration.


5.58 Question 2.3: Birthplace

In the study of a population, an individual's place of birth is considered to be the mother's place of residence at the time. It is common for mothers from surrounding parishes to go to Victoria Jubilee Hospital in Kingston, the Cornwall Regional Hospital in St. James, and the Spanish Town Hospital in St. Catherine to have their babies. These women then return to their own parish of residence with the children. For census purposes, the parish of birth for these children is the parish to which the mother returned. If the person was born in Jamaica, indicate the relevant parish. Note that there are several places in Jamaica that have the same name. If, therefore, the individual states his/her birthplace by name of locality, do not assume the name of the parish: ask the respondent to tell you what parish the particular address is in. Special attention must be paid to answers given, identifying the parish as Kingston or St. Andrew, particularly the urban part. Many people in Jamaica refer to these parishes interchangeably, generally as "Kingston". When a respondent answers "Kingston", find out if he really means the parish of Kingston and not the suburban area commonly referred to as "Kingston" but which in fact is in St. Andrew.

If a child is born abroad to a woman whose usual place of residence is in Jamaica, the place of birth for that child is the parish of usual residence in Jamaica. Only if the mother was resident abroad (i.e. living abroad for 6 months or more or intending to live abroad for 6 months or more) is the birthplace to be regarded as abroad. Refer to Appendix ii for a listing of country grouping.

Column P16: Birthplace

76. Where was this person born? Birthplace is the usual place of residence of mother at the time of the respondent's birth. This question is meant to establish persons who are not enumerated in their places of birth and hence have migrated. Sometimes expectant mothers move from the rural areas to urban areas for purposes of delivery since maternity services are better at the latter. This kind of movement is short lived and must not be confused with a migratory one. For example, if a woman who usually resides in Kiambu district moves to Nairobi to deliver her child, it will be assumed that the woman went to Nairobi purposely for maternity services. Thus the district of birth of the child will be recorded as Kiambu.

(a) For persons born in Kenya, code district using the list provided on the back side of the form cover. For example, for a person born in Kiambu code "201" and for a person born in Tharaka code "412".

(b) If the district of birth is the same as the district of enumeration, mark an "X" in the smallest box in column P16, and leave the other three bigger boxes blank.

(c) Relate the person's birthplace to the present district's frontiers as far as possible. District boundaries have been changed over the years and we want to relate a person's place of birth to the district as it is constituted now.

(d) For districts that have been split, probe to find the actual district of birth and code the name by which it is currently known.

(e) For persons born outside Kenya, code the country of birth. For example, a person born in Tanzania will be coded "002", Uganda "001", Somalia "004", American countries "096" etc.

(f) Code "888" if district of birth is not known and "999" for not stated

Ask: Where was [the respondent] born?
Birthplace is the usual place of residence of mother at the time of the respondent's birth. This question is meant to establish persons who are not enumerated in their places of birth and hence have migrated. Sometimes expectant mothers move from the rural areas to urban areas for purposes of delivery since maternity services are better at the latter. This kind of movement is short lived and must not be confused with a migratory one. For example, if a woman who usually resides in Ruiru district moves to Nairobi to deliver her child, it will be assumed that the woman went to Nairobi purposely for maternity services. Thus the district of birth of the child will be recorded as Ruiru.

27.1 For persons born in Kenya, code district using the list provided. For example, a person born in Kikuyu district, code "209" and for a person born in Tharaka district, code "414".

27.2 Relate the person's birthplace to the present district's frontiers as far as possible. District boundaries have been changed over the years and we want to relate a person's place of birth to the district as it is constituted now. The codes must however be based on the code list provided.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image
Questions 11 and 12: Place of birth
150. Ask "which Township was [the respondent] born?" Place of birth for the purpose of census is the usual place of residence (township) of the mother at the time of the person's birth.

151. This question establishes persons who are not enumerated in their places of birth and hence have migrated. It will be used in estimating migration patterns. Sometimes expectant mothers move from the rural areas to urban areas for only purposes of delivery since maternity services are better at the latter. This kind of movement is short lived and must not be confused with a migratory one. Please note that birthplace does not mean place of delivery, but the usual place of residence of mother at the time of the respondent's birth. For example if a woman who usually resides in Nyaung Done township goes to a hospital in a township in Yangon to deliver her baby, the birthplace is Nyaung Done township and not the township in Yangon.

152. For persons born in Myanmar, record Township code using the code list provided. For a person born in same township as where being enumerated write "000". Mark either "1" for urban or "2" for rural in question (12) accordingly. If the place of birth was in Ward it will correspond to urban and if village tract then mark as rural. For a person born outside Myanmar, code the country of birth using country code provided. Even for non-Myanmar citizens you must ask whether they were born in urban or rural areas and code accordingly.

153. Urban/rural may have changed since birth. If so, record the status at the time of birth. Note if the respondent does not know the township, only the ward or village tract name of birth, you would then assign accordingly (ward = urban) ad (village tract = rural).

Place of birth means where a person was born: indicate district if it is in Nepal and country if it is in another country. Birth may take place in a house, hospital, nursing home or other places like the ones mentioned above. For the purpose of enumeration, the place of birth refers to the usual place of residence of the mother during the birth of a person. If it is in the native country then the district should be recorded, or if it is in another country then the name of the country should be recorded. Even though the place of birth is in hospital, nursing home or other places like the ones mentioned above, which is used for the facilities, the place of birth should be the usual place of residence of mother at that time.

In the counting process, the birth place of all persons of all ages (infant, child, young, old) should be mentioned. If the birth place of a person is in Nepal, then mention the name of the current district of that place e.g. if the place of birth is in the currently living district (at the time of enumeration) then encircle code 1 to denote the same district. If place of birth is in the other district then encircle code 2 and specify the current name of the district of that place, e.g. Dolakha, Kailali, Bajhang etc. For denoting the place of birth as rural (VDC) or urban (Municipality) at the time of birth, encircle code 1 if it was VDC or 2 if it was municipality. If the place of birth is another country then encircle code 3 and specify the name of the country where the birth took place e.g. India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Germany etc.

Note:
1. The question on place of birth should be canvassed for all persons (infant, children, young and old) and the place of district or country should be specified.
2. For the person whose place of birth is in the currently living district - or having encircle code 1 of this column - there is no need to ask column 5 of this Schedule.

Migration [columns 16-19]

Column 16: where is the birthplace of [the respondent]?

[] 1 This district
[] 2 Another district
[] 1 VDC
[] 2 Municipality
[] 3 Foreign country

Birthplace means where a person was born (this district, another district, or foreign country). Ask the person concerned whether he/she was born in this district, another district, or foreign country. If he/she was born in this district, circle the reference 1, if born in another district, circle the reference 2, and write the name of the district where he/she was born, and then also circle either the VDC or municipality where he/or she was born. If the person was born in any foreign country, circle the reference 3 and write the name of the country.

[Image is omitted]

If a person was born in this district (enumerated district), there is no need to ask such questions as how long [the respondent has been] living here (column 17) and what is the main reason to live here (column 18). In this situation, jump to the column 19 (Where [the respondent] was living five years ago?). However, if the person was not born in this district, but in another district then write the name of the other district and again ask whether if the birthplace was a VDC or municipality. If the birthplace was a VDC, circle the reference 1 and if it was municipality, circle the reference 2. If the person was born in another district (circled in reference 2) or in foreign country (circled in reference 3), then ask him/her how long he/she has been living here (column 17) and what is the main reason for living here (column).

Things to be considered while completing column 16:

- Ask the question related to birthplace to all persons (children, youth, and elderly people) and if the birthplace is another district or country, specify the name of such district or country.

- A person's place of birth might be anywhere - own home, hospital, maternity care center, nursing home or places with similar facilities. But for the purpose of enumeration, the place of birth means the place where his/her parents were usually living when he/she was born, and accordingly if it was this district, circle the reference 1, if it was another district, circle the reference 2 or if it was another country circle the reference 3.

[p. 67]

- If the birthplace was in another district, circle the reference 2 and write the name of the district of the birthplace (e.g. Dhading, Kailali, Jumla, etc.). Also identify whether the place was a VDC or municipality at that time, and if was a VDC, circle the reference 1 and if it was a municipality, circle the reference 2.

- If the birthplace was another country, circle the reference 3 and write the name of the country (e.g. India, China, America, Canada, Australia, England, etc.).

- For people who checked reference 1, i.e. the people who was born in the current living district, do not ask the questions related to column 17 and 18.

Question 4: Place of birth
For the purpose of the census, we consider the place of birth of the person as the municipality of the habitual residence of the person's mother at the time of birth, even if the delivery occurred in another municipality distinct from the one of the mother's habitual residence, because of medical care or other accidental reasons. If for the census you do not indicate the birth of the child in the place of the mother's residence, then we will have a false result for migrations. Therefore, you should be very careful with this question.

You will ask, "In which municipality of the country were you born?" But explaining that you want to know in which municipality the person started to grow up.

If the person was born in the same municipality where you are conducting the interview, you will mark the box that corresponds to Category 1 (Here, in this municipality) with an "X" and you will leave the rest blank.

If the person was born in another municipality, you will write the name of the municipality. For those who were born in another country, you should be careful to write the complete name of the country of origin clearly and at the same time, write the year of arrival in Nicaragua when the person intended to stay here. Leave the boxes to the right blank; they are for office use.

P11 and P12 Citizenship

Citizenship is defined as the legal nationality of a person. A citizen is a legal national of the country at the time of census, while an alien is a non-national of the country. The collection of data on citizenship permits the classification of the population into (a) citizens and (b) aliens.
Data on citizenship are valuable in the study of problems relating to the legal status and civil rights of immigrants.

A person's citizenship depends on the country to which he owes legal allegiance or where he exercises the right of suffrage.

Ask the question in P11: "Is ________ a citizen of the Philippines" for all persons. This question determines who among the members of the household are citizens of the Philippines and who are not. If the household member is a citizen of the Philippines, cross out circle for the category Yes and skip to P13. However, if the household member is not a citizen of the Philippines, mark the circle before NO in P11 and ask the question in P12: "What country is _______ a citizen of".

Enter the appropriate code for the country of citizenship of household members who are not Filipinos. The codes are listed in the Code Book.

For persons with dual citizenship, both aliens, inquire which one should be reported and enter the code for the preferred country of citizenship. However, for those with dual citizenship, Filipino and an alien citizenship, cross out the circle for Yes in P11.

For persons whose citizenship is other than those provided with codes at the bottom of the questionnaire, write on the space provided the name of the country to where they owe legal allegiance to.

If the person being interviewed hesitates to answer this question, remind him that the information will be held strictly confidential and no reference to individual persons will be made.

For the persons born in the same place where the census enumeration staff is recording them, "in the same locality" will be written.

Persons born in another village of the same commune, where they are enumerated, or in another locality component of the same municipality/town where they are enumerated will be not considered as born in another place, but in the locality of enumeration.

The place of birth represents the locality where the mother of the enumerated person had the legal residence at the date when the birth took place. So, for persons born in maternities or birth houses situated in other places than of the mother's legal residence (residence), the locality where the birth house is located or the maternity, etc. (even this is mentioned on the birth certificate or on the identification card) is not considered the place of birth.

For persons born in another country the actual name of the country will be recorded (in the corresponding space of county).

All persons in the household will be recorded in this chapter, regardless whether they were present in the household or absent at the census reference point - "0" hour on the night of January, 6 to 7, 1992, or whether persons had left the household temporarily or for a longer period to work, to study, or for some other reason. Persons temporarily present in the household at the census reference point will not be recorded in this chapter, but in Chapter V.



Q. 10 Place of birth


57. The place of birth represents the locality where the mother of the enumerated person gave birth to the person. Write down the legal residence of the mother at the date when the birth took place and not the actual locality of the birth. Thus, in the case of persons born in maternity unitsor birth houses situated in places other than the mother's legal residence, do not consider the locality of the birth house or maternity unit, etc. to be the place of birth, even if this is mentioned on the birth certificate or on the identification card; instead, record the mother's place of legal residence at the time of the birth.

For persons born in the same place where the census enumeration is recorded, mark code 90, in Q. 10.1- and fill in the spaces designated for the county. The areas for municipality / town / commune (Q. 10.2) will remain empty.

For persons born in a place other than that where they are enumerated, the corresponding spaces of Q 10.1 write the name of the county where the person was born, as well as the county's code (in the open boxes on the right), in conformity with the list of county codes used for recording the previous legal residence (see above mentioned paragraph 51); after that, at item 10.2 record the corresponding area type of the birth place - municipality/town (code 1) or commune (code 2).

Recording of county name will be done according to the actual administrative-territorial division and not that existing when the enumerated person was born.
Persons born in another village of the same commune where they are enumerated, or in another locality/sector of Bucharest or a component of the same municipality / town where they are enumerated will be not considered as born in another place, but in the locality of enumeration (mark an x in the code 90 box).

For persons born in another country or in foreign territories, record in the corresponding space the actual name of the country and in the code box record the corresponding code from the list below. For this case, item 10.2 will not be answered.

Place of birth (item 8)

55. The place of birth represents the locality where the mother of the enumerated person had the legal residence at the date when the birth took place, and not the locality where the child was actually born..
So, in the case of the persons born on maternities, birth houses, situated in other places than of the mother's legal residence, are not considered as place of birth- the locality where the birth house is located or the maternity, etc. (even this is mentioned on the birth certificate or on the identification card), but the mother's place of her legal residence, at the date of birth.

The way of recording:

-- the mark x will be written on the box of the code 90 --for the persons born in the same place where the census enumeration staff is recording them and the spaces designated for the county (municipality/town/commune)/country, will remain empty;
-- the name of the county where the person was born - will be recorded for persons born in other place than that where they are enumerated. The recording of the county's name will be done according to the actual administrative-territorial division and not of that existing when the enumerated person was born.
-- the mark x will be recorded on the code boxes 1 or 2 for persons born in place other than where they were enumerated, on the municipalities/towns or communes, according to the situation existing at the date of birth of the enumerated person;
-- the actual name of the country will be written -- for persons born in another country or in the territories being actually under other country's administrations.

Later, the enumerator will codify, on the corresponding spaces the codes for county or country (paragraphs 126 and 125).

[p. 41]

Will be not considered as born in another place, but in the locality of enumeration -- the persons born in another village of the same commune, where they are enumerated, or in another locality, component of the same municipality / town where they are enumerated.

P08: Place of birth

Here, every Rwandese understands the place of residence of his/her parents at time of his/her birth. In the case where his/her parents did not live together, one will write the place where his/her mother lived at time of his/her birth. One writes the district or the country in the appropriate box. If the person does not know the name of the district, one will ask him/her the name of the former commune after checking with the district list to be found in a separate document, and one will determine the district of birth of the given person.

For someone who was born in Rwanda, one will write the district of birth, and for someone who was born in a foreign country, one will write the name of the country where he/she was born.

Remark:
One shall not confuse the place of birth and the place of delivery. The place of birth is the place where the parents were living at time of the birth. The place of delivery is the place where the delivery took place, as for instance a hospital (ibitaro). If the enumerated person was born at home, the place of birth and the place of delivery are the same.

In this census, the important thing is to know the place of birth, since most of the time the place of delivery and the place of birth are identical.

[For private and institutional household questionnaires]
Birthplace is the usual place of residence of mother at the time of the respondent's birth. This question is meant to establish persons who are not enumerated in their places of birth and hence have migrated. Sometimes expectant mothers move from the rural areas to urban areas for purposes of delivery since maternity services are better at the latter. This kind of movement is short lived and must not be confused with a migratory one. For example, if a woman who usually resides in Karongi district moves to Kigali [CHUK] for maternity, it will be assumed that the woman went to Kigali purposely for maternity services. Thus the district of birth of the child will be recorded as Karongi.

District boundaries have been changed over the years of administrative system and we want to relate a person's place of birth to the district as it is constituted now. For districts which have been split by the reform, probe to find the actual district of birth and write the name by which it is currently known.

Note: For someone who was born in Rwanda, write the district of birth and for someone who was born abroad, write the country where he was born.

4.2. Part B: individual characteristics

B09: place of birth
This is the place of residence of the registered mother at the time of birth and not necessarily the place mentioned on her identity card. Ask the following question:
''In which rural community, municipality (In Dakar and in Thiès, there are arrondissement municipalities.) or country were you born?''
Enter the name of the municipality followed by the letter C or the rural community of birth for people born in Senegal. If the name of the municipality/rural community is not known, enter the name of the arrondissement followed by the letter A. If the name of the arrondissement is not known, enter the name of the department followed by the letter D. If the latter is not known, enter the name of the region followed by the letter R. Record only the name of the locality if the person does not know the administrative unit to which the locality belongs.
[p. 36]
Example: a person was born in the municipality of Diourbel, register Diourbel C. If the person was born in the department of Diourbel, the name of the rural community is not known, record Diourbel D. If the person was born in the Region of Diourbel without knowing in which department, enter Diourbel R.
If the person was born abroad, enter the name of the country of birth. Example France for a person born in France, Gambia for a person born in the Gambia.
NB: For the specific cases of the regions of Thiès and Dakar, put Dakar City, Pikine City, Guédiawaye City and Thiès City instead of Dakar C or Thiès C.
For people born outside Senegal, give the name of the country of birth and not the name of a locality in that country.
NB: On the PDA, you will choose the answer on a drop-down list.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

24 Your first residence after birth was

The first residence after birth is the place (settlement and municipality or foreign country) in which the mother had her residence when the enumerated person was born. The enumerator thus does not enter the actual birthplace (e.g. place of the maternity hospital) but data on the first residence after the person's birth.

In the town entered under question 2 is marked by the enumerator if the person still lives in the settlement in which (s)he lived after birth.

In a different locality in Slovenia is marked by the enumerator if the person no longer lives in the same settlement in which (s)he lived after birth. In this case the enumerator enters the full name of the settlement in which the person lived after birth and the name of the municipality to which the settlement belongs.

In a foreign country is marked by the enumerator if after birth the person did not live in Slovenia but in a foreign country. In this case the enumerator enters the name of the foreign country.


The enumerator must take into account countries that are internationally recognised at the time of the census, which is especially important for persons who after birth lived in the former Yugoslavia. In addition to Slovenia, in the territory of former SFRJ the following countries existed at the time of the census: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia and Yugoslavia.

For persons born during World War II whose mother was deported into another place in Slovenia or into another country, the enumerator enters as the first residence after birth the place from which the mother was deported.

Questions P-09, P-09a and P-09b -- Place of birth

This question is divided into three parts -- 9, 9a and 9b. Each person must answer two parts i.e. 9 and 9a or 9 and 9b. First we ask if the person was born in South Africa. If they say "Yes", we then ask in which province. If they say no, we ask instead for the country where they were born.

If "Yes" to P-09, go to P-09a, and then to Question 10. If "No" to P-09, skip P-09a and go to P-09b, and then to Question 10.


P-09b "In which country was (the person) born?"

Write the name of the country in the boxes provided. Use the name the country is presently known by. Do not add names of cities or provinces.

Remember to use capital letters for the answers to 9a and 9b, and not to leave spaces between words.

Some people are reluctant to tell you where they were born. If necessary, you can stress that the information is only used for statistical purposes and will never be released to the police or other government departments in an identifiable form, only as numerical totals.

1.A.5 Place of birth

For those people that have been born in Spain this variable refers to the place of habitual residence of the mother at the moment of birth, or if this is unknown, that in which the birth took place.

For the people that have been born outside of Spain this variable will contain the value of the country of habitual residence of the mother at the moment of birth, or if this is not available, that in which the birth took place following the international borders on the date of reference of the census.

It deals with a variable relevant to the effect of determining collectives of migrants and their origin. In fact the variable determines the group of immigrants and, because of that, it is essential together with nationality to be able to study their characteristics, their life conditions, and their level of integration.

[p. 27]

Categories of this variable:

Municipality of Spain (for those people that have been born in Spain)
Country (for those people that have been born outside of Spain)

Section 2 - Migration

The main objective of this section is to determine the relative directions in which the local born population have tended to move over periods of one, five, and ten years. Migration is even more important when cross classified with age, sex, ethnic groups, levels or educational attainment and level of training.

Internal migration also provides vital information on the direction of the flow of the population from rural to urban areas. It also allows the determination of migration streams and volume of movement over time. Migration is also a major factor in population change and in the redistribution of population among geographic areas.

Question 7(a) - Place of Birth

The place of birth is the country in which the person was born.

This is a screening question used to determine those individuals who are local born as opposed to foreign-born.

[p.33]

G. Information of the people
169. Once the Section "F. Information of the home" is finished, you should ask the population questions to each one of the people who you are to enumerate.

When possible, you should try to make each person provide you with their own information. Only in the case of a person who is absent at the time of your visit, or if it concerns children, will you receive their information from a third party.

In each home, you will enumerate all people who slept in it the night before the "Day of the Census" or who, being absent this night for reasons of work, return to the home during the day. In such form, a doctor who did not sleep in his/her house because of being on guard in a hospital will be enumerated in their home. On the contrary, a traveler who spent many days away from their home will be enumerated in the place slept in during the night before the "Day of the Census."


I. General characteristics of all people
The questions included in this chapter are for knowing the distribution of the population by sex, age and civil state; their territorial distribution and movements made within the country in the last 5 years.

You should ask the questions in this chapter to all people who are to be enumerated in the home.


218. Question no. 7 is: "In what locality or place did you begin living habitually when you were born?"

With this question we look to get information about the locality or place that constituted the first habitual residence of the person being enumerated. It is, generally, the home of their parents at the moment of birth of this person. Consequently, the place or locality of the hospital, sanitarium, or private house where, eventually, the mother moved for the birth of the enumerated person should not be written down.

219. To register the information corresponding to this question, follow the same criteria as for no. 6 (paragraph 214)

220. While enumerating Mr. López in Tranqueras, who always lived there, he declares to have been born in Rivera, where his mother moved with the purpose of receiving adequate medical assistance.

When you ask the question "In what locality or place did you begin living habitually when you were born?", Mr. López should respond:

[Below the text are two forms, one of which has a box marked "Tranqueras"]

221. Mr. Pereira declares that he was born in the city of Durazno and lived there for 10 years, then moving to the department of Canelones, where you are enumerating him.

Read question No. 7 and write down the department and locality corresponding to this example.

[p. 65]

222. If a person who you are enumerating was born in this country, go directly to question number 8; but if they declare to be born abroad, you should ask the year of arrival in Uruguay to live here.

Mr. Rojas was born in Santiago, Chile and arrived in Uruguay in the year 1941. Make the corresponding notations in the Census document.

Question 9. In what locality or place did you begin to live when you were born?

We look to obtain information about the locality or place that constituted the first habitual residence of the enumerated person.

[p. 25]

Generally it was the same place where their parents lived at the moment of their birth.
Consequently, do not consider here a place or locality where the hospital, sanitarium or private house was found where the mother moved for the birth of the enumerated person.

To write down this question, the same procedures and criteria for Question 7 are followed.

If the enumerated person was born in Uruguay and is age 3 or older, go directly to the following Part "For all persons age 3 or older". If born in Uruguay and younger than 3, you will leave the questions of the parts that follow blank and of to enumerate the next person.

If an enumerated person declared to have been born abroad and has habitual residence in Uruguay (Question 7), you should ask the following question:

8.5 Migration

This module is formulated for everyone.

The objective is to identify the migrations that the people have had throughout their lives. Migration is understood to be a change of habitual residency from a place of origin to a place of destination that outreaches the limits of the geographic division (locality, department, or country).

In which locality or area did he/she go to live after birth?

This question refers to the locality or area that constituted the first habitual residence of the person (in the case of having been born in the exterior, you should only record the country). Generally it deals with the same locality where his mother was living at the moment of birth. Consequentially, you must not note here the locality where the hospital, sanitarium, or private house where the mother gave birth is found.

[p. 97]

Select the option

  • In this locality or area. If the person's first habitual resident is in the same locality or area in which he/she is being interviewed.
  • In another locality of this department: If the person went to reside in another locality or area of the same department in which he/she is being interviewed.
  • Select the name of the locality from the list that the system displays.
  • If the name of the locality is not on the list, consult the informant as to whether the place was in a rural area. If it is so, mark the option "rural."
  • If the informant responds that it was an urban area, ask him/him if that locality is known by another name and search for the said name in the list.
  • If the locality is known by another name or the name is not on the list, select the option "other." This option will only be used in very exceptional cases.
  • In another department: If the person went to live in another locality or area of a department different than that in which he/she is being interviewed.
  • Select the name of the department.
  • Select the name of the locality from the list the system displays.
  • If the name of the locality is not on the list, consult the informant about where the place was in a rural area. If it is so, mark the option "rural."
  • If the informant responds that it was an urban area, ask him/him if that locality is known by another name and search for the said name in the list.
  • If the locality is known by another name or the name is not on the list, select the option "other." This option will only be used in very exceptional cases.
  • In another country. If the person lived in another country, select the country from the previous residency.

4.2 Place of birth

Place of birth information is principally used to investigate internal migration and is crossed with the place of usual residence. This information permits the classification of the population who resides within the national territory as either Born in Venezuela or Born abroad.

Place of birth refers to the geographical place where the enumerated person was born. For the purposes of the census, the enumerated person's place of birth, to the level of Federal Entity [State], is requested of those born in Venezuela; for those born abroad, the corresponding country of birth, province, department or region, is requested as well as the year of arrival to Venezuela.

20. In this question "Place" refers to district for cases within Zambia, or country for cases outside Zambia whether the person is Zambian or not. This should be the place of usual residence of the mother of the respondent, at the time of birth of the respondent, and not the hospital or place where she just went to give birth. For persons born in Zambia, write the district of birth and then enter the appropriate code which is provided in Appendix 1 on page 77. Some people may not know the name of the district in which they were born, but they will generally know the name of the Chief's area. In such cases you should write out the Chief's area and then later on refer to the list of Chiefs by districts in Appendix 2 on page 79 and find out which district the Chief belongs to. In case the person was born outside Zambia, write the name of the country in which he/she was born. Then enter the apropriate country code in the three boxes provided. The country codes are given in Appendix 4 on page 93. Do not write the name of the district of a foreign country. Note that a zero, '0' has been added to the district codes in order to standardize them with country codes.
