32. Function or activity class of the establishment, organization, institution, etc, where exercised occupation in question 30
Question 32 - Objective or field of business of the establishment, organization, institution, etc., where the occupation declared in Question 30 is exercised
This question is aimed at determining the objective or field of business of the organization, company or firm to which the enumerated person is subordinated, or the nature of the activity exercised by self-employed persons.
In most cases, the class of activity is not directly related to the occupation. Therefore, a driver may exercise his or her occupation in Highway freight transportation (driver for a transportation company), or at a Textile company (driver for a cloth factory); a doorman may exercise his occupation in Hotel services (hotel doorman) or in the Entertainment industry (doorman at a movie theater); a medical doctor may exercise her occupation for the Federal Health Department (doctor at INAMPS) or at a Private medical service, (doctor at a private hospital or a private office), or at a Steel company (doctor at the Volta Redonda Steel Plant), etc.
In farming establishments (crops or animals), record the main crop or animal at the establishment.
Generic answers should be avoided which do not make it possible to correctly characterize the activity of the establishment or business of the workers being enumerated, such as Agriculture, Commerce, Industry, Public service, etc.
For orientation, a list of the most common activities is presented below, where countless occupations are exercised. It should be made clear that the entry does not have to be one of the expressions on the list; it should characterize the activity of the organization where the occupation is exercised.
