21. Occupation status

This variable allows knowing whether a person has worked for at least 7 days [continuously or not] during the last 3 months preceding your visit in the household. In other words, the reference period is determined starting on the date of your first visit in the household. This means that you should count back 3 months starting with the date of your first visit, and those 3 months correspond to the reference period [3 months in this specific case equal 90 days].

This variable's categories are:

[] 0. Employed in the informal sector [OCSI]: i.e. the company in which the person works has not be constituted according to the rules provided by legislation. In other words, this enterprise does not have a book-keeping that is regularly established and does not possess a INSAE number or a unique fiscal identifier [IFU];
[] 1. Employed in the public formal sector [OCFE]: i.e. the establishment in which the person works is an administration or a public enterprise;
[] 2. Employed in the formal private sector [OCFP]: i.e. the enterprise in which the person works a private enterprise constituted according to the rules established by law.
[] 3. Unemployed [CHO]: this is the case of a person who has worked for at least once but has not worked for at least 7 days [continuously or not] during the last 3 months and who is seeking employment;
[] 4. Seeking 1st employment [CT]: this is the case of a person who has never worked and who is seeking their first employment;
[] 5. Housewife [MEN]: all persons who exclusively take care of house work without receiving a salary and who are not seeking employment;
[] 6. Elementary school student, middle and high school student, university student [ETU]: all persons regularly attending an education establishment and who do not exercise an economic activity;
[] 7. Retired [RET]: this is an individual who no longer exercises a remunerative activity and who benefits from a retirement pension;
[] 8. Rentier [RENT]: this is a person who does not work and who lives exclusively from revenue on their property or capital;
[] 9. Other non-active [AINA]: this is a person without employment, capable of working, but who is not seeking employment.
Following the registration order for household members, circle the code corresponding to the declared occupation status of the counted person;

NB: The data on persons taking care of the household require particular attention, because some of their activities are considered part of the domain of production according to the definition of the National Accounting System and meaning that these persons have an employment [for example production and/or transformation of agricultural products, weaving, sewing], while they risk of being considered as not have an economic activity.

Q: "Have you/has [the respondent] exercised a good and services production activity in the last 3 months?"

If yes, ask:

[] Interdependently or for someone who is independent?"
[] In this case, circle the code 0 corresponding to employed informal sector;
[] In an administration or public enterprise?
[] In this case, circle the code 1 corresponding to employed formal public sector
[] In a private enterprise?
[] In this case, circle the code 2 corresponding to employed formal private sector

If No, ask:
[] Have you/has [the respondent] worked before the last 3 months?
[] If yes, chicle the code 3 corresponding to unemployed;
[] If no, ask the habitual occupation of the person, circle the corresponding code and go to question 25

NB: Apprentices are employed person and must be classified in the corresponding sectors: informal, formal private, or formal public.

If for question 21 [Occupation status], the response code if different from 0, 1, 2, or 3, do not ask questions number 22, 23, and 24. In this case, directly skip to questions number 25 [marital status].

This is the person who worked for a business, establishment, company or institution of the private sector. As such, this will include the people who work in international organizations, such as the UN, IDA (International Development Association), OAS (Organization of American States), etc. This should take into account that even though a person occupies the position of director, manager or president, if they are not owner of the company, they are still an employee, which is valid in both sectors (public and private).

Boss or employer:
The boss, entrepreneur or owner is the person who operates their own business or company or who works in a profession or capacity on their own account and who has one or more employees or paid or salaried workers.

[pg. 58]

Independent workers (self-employed):
An independent worker is a person who is self-employed and doesn't have employees or workers to supervise but can receive help from a family member without paying them. Care should be taken not to confuse the self-employed worker with the owner or employer.

Domestic worker:
This is a man or woman who works in a permanent form for a household, doing household chores, such as: washing, ironing, cooking, cleaning, gardening, etc., for which he/she receives pay.

Worker in a producer cooperative:
This is a partner who works in one or more producer cooperatives for which they receive retribution according to their investment in the cooperative.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

8. Economic characteristics.

Questions 8, 9, 10 and 11 are restricted to persons aged 10 years and over.

10a. If employed (i.e. worked or had job but did not work) what is the name and address of the establishment where you worked? For unemployed, last establishment.

You should note that this question is restricted to the employed and the unemployed. However if a person was unemployed and you entered "new workers seeking employment" in column 9 you should leave columns 10 and 11 blank.

"Establishment" simply means the place where the respondent worked. "establishment" applies not only to the big enterprises such as Pioneer Biscuit Factory, G.N.T.C., etc., but the small ones as well, e.g. Kwesi Nimo's farm, place of petty trading in market or Amina Dagomba's kiosk "under the tree". What is required is the name and a precise address of the respondent's establishment or place of work. Do not write the respondent's postal address.

If the establishment has no name, then you must write down the name of the owner of the establishment, e.g.

(i) Addey Mensah's Farm (Name) Near Boso (Address)
(ii) Trading Place of Oku Boateng (Name), Prempeh II, Street, Kumasi (Address)
(iii) Awolo Adjo (Name) Stall No. 137, Central Market Kumasi (Address).
pg. 59
(iv) Seidu Wangara's Shop (Name), Near Opera Cinema, Accra (Address).

Where a person does not stay at one place and sell, you should write down the respondent's house address as the address of establishment.

Please note that a market consists of establishment of varying sizes and character. The name of the owner of each such establishment should be written down as in example (iii) above.

Please avoid vague addresses like:

(i) Drug Store, Bechem
(ii) Farm, Pedu
(iii) Ghana Government, Accra
(iv) School, Tamale

Never use unrecognized abbreviations like K.K.T., B.B.S., etc., which may be understood only in the areas concerned.

Note that addresses like Post and Telecommunications, City Council (Accra), United Africa Company of Ghana (Terna), etc. are not enough. With big enterprises which have two or more departments engaged in different activities, you should always specify the branch in which the respondent worked, e.g. Sanitary Branch, City Council, Accra; Vehicle Assembly Branch, U.A.C. of Ghana, Terna.

You should remember that for the unemployed you should write the name and address of the establishment where the respondent last worked. Similarly for those who "had job but did not work", we want information about the establishment where they claim to have jobs.

10b. If employed (i.e. worked or had job but did not work) or unemployed, what is the main product or service of this establishment?

This sub-item refers to the establishment where the respondent worked and not to what the respondent produced. For instance, if a carpenter who makes window frames is employed by a firm which builds houses, the major product you must write down is houses, not window frames, .since houses are produced by the establishment where he worked.

Similarly, if a carpenter gives Ambassador Hotel as the name of the establishment where he worked, you should write catering or hotel services as the major product or service of the establishment. You must also note that the major product or service of all educational institutions, e.g. the University of Ghana, Mfantsipim School, Government Technical School, is education even though the persons employed in these institutions may be doing different types

pg. 60

of jobs. However for craftsmen employed by a construction company which has undertaken a contract with an educational institution you should write down building construction but not education.

Note that the answer for this particular sub-item must be the same for all persons employed by the same establishment, or in the case of a multi-purpose establishment a department of it.

Examples of such multi-purpose establishments are City and Municipal Councils, G.I.H.O.C., some big business concerns like the G.N.T.C., U.T.C., U.A.C., etc. A City Council, for instance, may have the following functions: Local Administration, Transport Services, Education Services, Health Services, etc. Similarly G.I.H.O.C., G.N.T.C., U.T.C., etc., may have departments with the following as the main product or service:-Leather Hand-bags, Tobacco, Wholesale or Retail Trade, Repair of Motor Vehicles and Transport Services.

Thus for a respondent employed by such big establishments, you should record the main product or service of the particular branch in that big establishment where the respondent worked.

Another example is the market. The establishments within the market may offer different services, such as fruit-selling, hair cutting and "banku" making. Also the establishments within the market may make different types of wearing apparel, e.g. shorts, shirts and dresses. Therefore, always specify the type of wearing apparel the respondent made.

Below are five groups of examples showing some establishments and their major product or service.

[Examples on establishments and their major product or service of the original document are not presented here.]

Section 3: Labour

In this section, we collect information on the labor activities of men, women and children in the household. It is important not to confuse labor activities with a person's main activity. These are not the same things. A person's main activity may be to be a housewife or a student, but they may have other labor activities that should be recorded in this section. For example, a wife who has her own plots or her own small business should not be excluded from this section, even if she primarily works in domestic activities. Domestic activities are not included in this section of the questionnaire, but her other activities would be included, even though she may consider being a housewife her “job”. A child who is a student may consider themselves to be primarily a student without a job, but they may help their parents as unpaid family labor with their businesses or agricultural activities. For example, if a child works on his parent's farm or in their carpentry shop, the child's farming or carpentry activities should be included, even if the child does not receive payment directly for the work.

Respondent: This section concerns all household members aged 5 and above. You should confirm eligibility of the household members to respond to the questions. For children under 12, the parents or adult member of the household could answer on their behalf. Where some household members are absent, proceed with the interview for all those present but make the necessary arrangements to call back and continue the interview with absentee members after ascertaining the appropriate time that they would be available. If it is not possible to interview the person directly, a proxy response is possible.

Questions 14 - 15: The economic activities in the main jobs and the employers should be indicated by the respondents.

For persons 10 years old or older
(Apply to questions 14 to 25)

The questions that form this Section are meant to get information about the participation of the population 10 years old or older in the economic activities of this country.
The questions relating to the chapter are applied to the situation existing in the week immediately before the day of the Census (reference week). Reference week is defined below:
Definition of "Reference Week" or "Last Week": It is the complete calendar week, from Sunday to Saturday that, for census purposes goes from May 4, 1980 to May 10, 1980.
The answers obtained in question 13 are the basis for classifying the population of persons 10 years old or older as:
1. Economically active (employed and unemployed).
2. Not economically active (homemaker, student, disabled, retired, pensioner, rentier, others inactive).


[p. 80]

1. Economically active population
This group is understood to be the population of 10 years old or older who supply the workforce available for the production of goods and services of the country and is divided into Employed and Unemployed.

1.1 Employed Population: is understood to be persons who:

a) Have an occupation or job remunerated in money or in kind, during the reference week.
b) Have a private business or job on their own account. Example: The owner of a grocery store, the farmer, the lawyer who has his own practice, etc.
c) Works regularly in a business or company of a member of their family even when not drawing a wage or salary (Contributing family worker).
d) Sell tickets, newspapers, or any other article; make food to sell; wash cars; shine shoes; sew in their house for others; the kind of work, time worked or amount of money that they receive during the reference week does not matter.
e) Have a steady remunerated job but do not work during the reference week because of temporary circumstances: sickness or accident; vacation; work conflicts such as: bad weather; machine breakdowns, strike, on leave, etc.

1.2 Unemployed population: This group constitutes persons who do not have a remunerated occupation or job during reference week, but:

a) Have worked before and look for work (visits employment agencies or offices in search of work, consults friends about the availability of work, is relying on ads in newspapers, that is to say, makes the effort with the goal of finding employment).


[p. 81]

b) Are not looking for work because they have a job that will begin on a previously appointed date.
c) Look for their first job or that is "New Workers". The oldest age for a "New Worker" is 45.

2. Not economically active population
This group is understood to be the flowing persons:

2.1 Homemaker: The person who is dedicated only and exclusively to domestic tasks and chores in their own home and were not looking for work, nor were they retired, pensioned, living on investments, or attending school. In a dwelling there can be more than one homemaker.
2.2 Student: The person who is dedicated exclusively to studying.
2.3 Invalid: The person who is found to be physically or mentally impeded from working.
2.4 Retired: The person who has stopped working and is receiving retirement income.
2.5 Pensioned, rentier: The person who receives auxiliary or pensioned income (pensioned). Equally include in this group all the persons who without working receive money or investments from a business or company (rentier). Do not include persons who receive pension for food, divorce, etc.
2.6 Retired without benefits: Include in this group the persons who in some opportunity had a job but currently are separated from all type of economic activity without receiving retirement benefits or a pension.
2.7 Other condition: The person who without being classified in any of the groups above does not do any economic activity and remains idle.

When classifying the population, special care should be taken with the persons of the female sex who declare themselves to be "Homemaker" and those who declare themselves to be [p. 82] students. In the first case they sometimes also do remunerated jobs like: cleaning, ironing, sewing, styling hair, painting fingernails, making candy etc. in their own home or outside it but because they spend little time in these labors they forget to give this information.
On the other hand, some students after class or on weekends dedicate themselves to cleaning shoes, selling newspapers, washing cars etc. Equal care should be taken with the spouse or companion or the children of farm families, who regularly help with the agricultural labors but do not declare this job.
For reasons already explained, it is necessary that before classifying the population, the enumerator investigates more to find out if the parson did some work during the reference week. If is made known that the person worked during this period, even when it was part time, it should be classified as Employed, that corresponds to the population who is Economically Active.

Question No. 21: Do you work or did you work the last as a:

The objective of this question is to know the category of the occupation, which is nothing more than the classification with respect to the employment that the interviewed person manages or managed, whether employed or unemployed.
Before asking this question, observe the responses written down in questions 19 and 20, since based on these responses, in some cases you will be able to deduce which circle in this question to mark.

Circle 01. Government Employee: is a person who works or has worked for the national or municipal government, such as: Government worker, Ministry of Agricultural and Livestock Development (MIDA), autonomous or semi-autonomous institutions like the Savings Bank, Social Security Fund, and state companies like the Institute of National Water Systems and Sewer Systems (IDAAN), Authority of the Inter-oceanic Region (ARI), and receive for their work remuneration in the form of wage or salary.

L.

Considering that it may prove to be too simple to determine who is an Employee or salary earner (Of the Government, Private Company, Canal Commission, etc.) let us analyze the rest of the occupational categories and the following cases a little more:

[p. 100]

a. You are enumerating the dwelling of Mr. Juan Batista, when asking him about his place of work he says the he works in the workshop Vargas-Matamoros (question 19). Before marking the circle, be careful in making the correct classification asking additional questions like the following:
Are you the owner or employee of this business? If he is the owner ask if he is in charge of employees. If the response is yes classify him as owner or employer (circle 07); on the contrary if he has no employees, classify him as independent or for their own account (circle 06).
In the case that Mr. Batista declares to work for other persons, classify him as private company employee (circle 02).

b. You will be able to determine the category of occupation of the persons in some cases, by means of question 18 (occupation). Example: a shoe shiner, traveling salesperson, car washer, scrap seller, newspaper seller and other occupations that persons do in which they logically are not in charge of any employees. These persons can be classified automatically as independent or for their own account (circle 06).

c. In equal form the category of occupation (question 21) will be able to be determined through the response given to question 16 (place of work). Example: If a person states that they worked in the National Environmental Authority, the Institute of National Water Systems and Sewer Systems or any other governmental dependency, you can automatically classify them as Government Employee (Circle 01). Equally if a person works in their house or in the street, they can be classified for their own account (circle 06).

d) Inasmuch as the family worker, you may think that it concerns a person who works in a family house, nevertheless, if you carefully read the definition, it will become clear to you that it concerns a person who works 15 hours or more a week in the business of a family member without receiving a wage or a salary. In this category are included the family members of farmers who work in the same plot of land without receiving payment. Examples:

A child who works (Tuesday to Sunday) in mother's shop without receiving payment 8 hours daily.
16 year old student who used to work in the afternoon with grandfather in a farm without receiving a salary, from Wednesday to Sunday for 3 hours every day.

Class of Worker (P15) and Kind of Business or Industry (P16)

The question P15 is to be asked for those who were engaged in an economic activity in the past 12 months: "For whom or where does/did _________ work?"

The response to this question should refer to the current economic activity/ies, if any, or the most recent activity/ies if not currently economically active. If the person has more than one activity, this question should be answered in relation to that activity in which he/she spends longer hours. If she/he spends an equal number of hours in these activities, the activity to be reported should be that one which yields the highest income.

Possible responses are categorized into seven (7) classes of workers:

1. Worked for private household. If a person worked in a private household for pay, in cash or in kind. Examples are family drivers, gardener, yaya, household help and other persons in domestic service.


[p. 102 ]

2. Worked for private business/enterprise/farm. All employees in private firms and farms are classified here.

Other examples of this class of workers are:


  • persons working in public works project on private contracts
  • public transport drivers who do not own the vehicle but drive them on boundary basis
  • dock hands or stevedores
  • cargo handlers in public market, railroad stations or piers, etc.
  • palay harvester getting fixed share of harvested palay, sacadas and other farm workers


3. Worked for government/government corporation. All government employees would be classified here. Examples of this class of workers are:


  • Employees in national and local government offices, agencies and corporation
  • Filipinos working in embassies, legation, chancelleries or consulates of foreign government in the Philippines
  • Filipinos working in international organizations of Sovereign States of Government like the United Nations, World Health Organization, etc.
  • Chaplains in the Armed Forces of the Philippines.


4. Self-employed without employee. If a person worked for profit or fees in own business, farm, profession or trade without any paid employee. Examples include vendors, professionals with own offices/clinics, workers who worked purely on commission basis and who have no regular working hours.

5. Employer in own farm or business. If a person, working in his own business, farm, profession or trade had one or more regular paid employees, including paid family members (code 6 below). Some cases worth noting:


[p. 103]

  • Domestic helpers, family drivers and other household helpers who assist in the family operated business, regardless of time spent in this activity, are NOT hired employees in the enterprises/business; hence a farm or business proprietor who is assisted purely by such domestic help is not considered an employer.
  • A retail store operator who is wholly assisted in the operation of his/her store by unpaid relatives living with him/her and who employs carpenters to construct a building for his store (with store operator supervising the work) is not an employer. However, if this operator is also the owner or partner of a firm with paid construction workers and staff, and the reported industry in P16 is building construction, then he is an employer.


6. Worked with pay on own family-operated farm or business. If a person worked in own family-operated farm or business and receives cash or a fixed share of the produce as payment for his services. Note that whenever there is a household member with this code, there should be a household member with code 5 for class of worker.

7. Worked without pay on own family operated farm or business. If a member of the family worked without pay in a farm or business operated by another member living in the same household.

Enter the appropriate one-digit code in column P15.


Item P16, "In what kind of business or industry is/was _______'s current/last employer engaged in?" refers to the economic activity reported in item P15.

Write the specific industry in which a self-employed person is currently/last engaged in or in which the person's employer is engaged in and enter appropriate code. Use the Codes Sheet which lists the 37 industry codes that you should use to classify the responses. Refer also to Appendix 11 for the specific industry under the major groups.

Below are some examples on the kind of business or industry to be reported in column P16:

1. If for several years, a person has been a public school teacher but on census day, he has already quit his teaching job and is now operating a


[p. 104]

sari-sari store, the kind of industry he is currently engaged in is sari-sari store and no longer government service.

2. For a person doing clerical work in a tobacco manufacturing company, report him/her as engaged in tobacco manufacturing.

F. Section VI - Economic activity

One of the main purposes of this section is to determine which individuals have been in the working force of the country at any time during the 12 months preceding Census Day. It is essential that the enumerator understands the definition of the term work as given in question 2.3 and makes use of it in his interviews. Generally work done
[p.16]
outside of the country is not relevant to the Census, but work done under contract on U.S. farms by residents is to be included, as also is work on ships and aircraft operating outside of the country.

55. Question 23 - Main activity during past 12 months

This question aims at classifying persons according to their main activity during the 12 months preceding enumeration, based upon what each person has been engaged in for most of that period. It is also intended to distinguish between persons who work (i.e. are economically active) and those who do not work. An individual is classified as working if he is engaged in the production of goods or services for sale. Usually this entails his receiving a wage, salary or other form of recompense; but trainees and apprentices, whether paid or not, as well as unpaid helpers in commercial farms and other enterprises a.re also to be classified as workers. All self-employed persons are also to be listed as worked.

Categories of persons who are not economically active in this context over persons who have never worked before but who are seeking their first job, people engaged in home duties, students and those retired or disabled.

56. Question 24 - Worker or occupational status during past year

The purpose of this question is to distinguish between persons who for most of the 12 months preceding census day worked for others as paid employees, or unpaid workers and those who worked for themselves.

In the case of persons who worked for others, the information sought is whether they worked for the government or not, or were engaged in a family or other business without pay.

For those who carried on their own business or farm your mark must indicate whether they operate with paid help or without.

Section 4 - Economic Activity, questions [15] to [23]
The main purpose of this section is to determine which individuals have been engaged in economic activity, that is the production of goods and services for sale during the week preceding enumeration and at any time during the past twelve [12] months and, those who were not so engaged. It is essential that the enumerator understands the concept of the term work as given in question [15] and makes use of it in his interviews. Generally, work done outside Trinidad and Tobago is not relevant to the census, but work done under contract on Canadian farms by residents is to be included, as also is work by resident crew on ships and aircraft operating outside of the country.

It should be noted that priority is given to work over all other activities. Also, economic activity holds precedence over non-economic.
Question 16 - Type of worker
The purpose of this question is to distinguish between persons who worked for others as paid employees [e.g. government, public service and public enterprise; non-government workers; unpaid workers and learners]; those who worked for themselves without any help - paid or unpaid, those who had their own business or farm and employed others [paid or unpaid]. Obtain the correct information and tick the appropriate box. You are to check your list of the names of government public enterprises if in doubt, to assist respondents who work for government but are unsure whether it is the public service or public enterprise.

For job seekers and similar unemployed persons, you are to record information on job last held. Persons seeking first job are classified as never worked.

The type of worker [status in employment] can be defined as follows:

[i] Worked for others, i.e. employee

[c] Non-Government-That is private employment.
[d] Unpaid worker and learner- These are apprentices, unpaid family worker in a business establishment or enterprise whether agricultural or non-agricultural.
[ii] Employer [has own business/farm with paid help]

Section 4 - Economic activity-questions [15] to [21]
The main purpose of this section is to determine which individuals have been engaged in economic activity, that is the production of goods and services for sale during the week preceding enumeration and at any time during the past twelve [12] months and, those who were not so engaged. It is essential that the enumerator understands the concept of the term work as given in question [15] and makes use of it in his interviews. Generally, work done outside Trinidad and Tobago is not relevant to the census, but work done under contract on Canadian farms by residents is to be included, as also is work by resident crew on ships and aircraft operating outside of the country.
It should be noted that priority is given to work over all other activities. Also, economic activity holds precedence over non-economic.

Question 16 - Type of worker status

The purpose of this question is to distinguish between persons who worked for others as employees [e.g. Government, Public service and Public enterprise; Non-government workers; Unpaid workers and learners]: those who had their own business or farm and employed others [paid or unpaid]. Obtain the correct information and tick the appropriate box. You are to check your list of the names of Government public enterprises if in doubt, to assist respondents who work for Government but are unsure whether it is the Public service or Public enterprise.
For job seekers and similar unemployed persons, you are to record information on job last held. Record persons seeking first job as never worked.

The type of worker status [in employment] can be defined as follows:

[i] Worked for others, i.e. employee

-Public enterprises and/or state-owned enterprises, i.e. an enterprise where government holds the controlling interest-51% or more of shares.
[b] Non-government
-Private employment
[ii] Employer [has own business/farm with paid help]
A person who operates his or her own economic enterprise or engages independently in a profession or trade, and hires one or more paid employees.
[iii] Own account worker [has own business/farm without paid help]
A person who operates his or her own economic enterprise or engages independently in a profession or trade, and hires no employees.
[iv] Unpaid worker
A person who works in a business or farm which is run for profits, belonging to a relative or persons and who receives no payment in cash, but who benefits from the operation of the business or farm because he is a member of the proprietor's household.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Occupational characteristics

Observation
222. Under the general title "Occupational characteristics" are six themes for titles 13 to 18. For the information to be collected, firstly the whole population of the country has to be grouped within two primary groups:

a) The economically active population.

b) The not economically active population.


Each one of these two large groups will be, at the same time, differentiated into sub-groups, and each and every one of these will be specified under title 13.

[p. 36]

223. Next, the principal occupation of those to be enumerated is investigated (title 14), considering that when a person works more than one occupation, it is the one that supplies the greatest income; and secondary occupation, that which follows the principal in importance regarding income. If a person only works one occupation, this will be the principal occupation.

224. Next, under the name industry of principal activity, the class of industry or place of work where said principal occupation is done (title 15) is to be investigated, and the category or role with which it is done, as employee, worker, etc. (title 16).

The same is for the investigation of secondary occupation when it exists (title 17), and the industry of secondary activity or class of industry where this last activity is done (title 18).

225. In order to get a rational and appropriate group of information, many individual situations should be contemplated which are adjusted to definitions, each time more refined by economic, social and technical censuses. Such definitions and methodological procedures to register information are structured in the form that reflects the occupational situation of those enumerated on the "day of the census".

226. The information asked for in titles 13 to 18 is intimately correlated. This means that once initial basic information is registered, no other information in titles 14 to 18 should be written down without having clarified, whether proceeding or not, the registration of information in the title immediately before. The information registered in title 13 is clarified, and continue conditionally for each one of the following titles until 18, according to the situation of the person enumerated.


Title 15: Industry of principal activity
252. "Industry of principal activity" is understood to be the class of business, establishment, office, organization, company, institution, etc., where a person does their principal occupation.

253. Write down this information only for people who in the previous title (title 14), were registered with a principal occupation that pertains to one of the two groups: "Employed", or "Unemployed".

As in the case of the principal occupation, try to register in the most concrete form, avoiding vague names, the class of establishment where the person works or worked (if "Unemployed"). Avoid names such as workshop, office, store, company, factory, stall, etc., and instead specify in the following manner: shoe factory, radio repair shop, accountant's office, leather stall, air transportation company, refrigerator repairs, construction company, textile factory, bronze smelting, etc.

[p. 40]

255. Avoid writing down names that are exclusively the name of the establishment, like the factory "La Violeta", "Casa Fénix", etc., that do not give any idea of the class of industry or business done in it.

256. In the case of mixed businesses like a beauty salon or hairdresser's in which there is at the same time a lottery kiosk or caramel vending, register the business that receives the greatest benefits or that the owner considers the most important.

257. If a person is a government employee, of an autonomous, municipal, or decentralized service entity, write down without exception the name of these institutions where they work, such as: Ministry of Public Works, Department of National Parks, Ancap, Department of Combustibles, National Administration of Ports, Department of Accounting, etc.

258. If a person has the same occupation in more than one business or industry, the type of establishment where the greatest remuneration is received should be noted. For example, in the case of a bookkeeper who does the books for a glass factory, a feminine articles shop, and a transportation company, and he receives the largest income from the glass factory, this will have to be noted as the "industry of principal activity". It is understood that this does not concern a person in an accounting office who has a varied clientele -- the same is true for any other professional (doctor, dentist, etc.).

259. If a person does their job in a company that supports two or more different industrial activities, that industrial activity with which the person is directly linked should be written down, since it is a principal activity of the company and not a supplementary activity.

Examples:
a) In the case of a company that has a refrigerator factory and one that makes furniture, an employee will be written down as industry of principal activity: "refrigerator factory", or "furniture factory", according to which of these industries the employee works for.

b) If a textile factory has its own electric plant that supplies the necessary motorized power, a person who works in this factory will be written down as industry of principal activity: "textile factory", and not "electric plant", because the plant is an supplementary activity of the factory.

260. With respect to domestic employees, they will be written down as industry of principal activity: "family house", or "collective dwelling".

  • Non-remunerated family worker is a person who works (at least 15 hours per week) in a company or business whose owner is related and does not receive any remuneration.


[p. 79]

  • Member of a production cooperative is a person who is an active member of a production cooperative, whatever activity is done.


If a person has a job whose category is not present in the Census document, write it down in "Other" as exactly as possible.

If a person you are enumerating tells you that their category is non-remunerated family worker, you should ask them if they worked more than 15 hours last week. If they answer affirmatively continue ahead, on the contrary, tell them that their answers to questions no. 15, 16 and 17 should not be registered, erase what you have written in them and ask question no. 15 again.

What box would you mark if you had to enumerate the following people?

Characteristics of the main job


69. In this job, you are...?

This question investigates the occupational status of the interviewee, which all in all is the relationship of the worker with his work.

Working for a wage/salary: worker or employee; a person who works for an employer (public or private) and receives a remuneration in the form of a salary, payments in installments or in kind. If he is a public salaried worker, the following question will be asked; if he is a private salaried worker you will go on to question

Member of a cooperative: person who is cooperative, whatever the productive activity to which the cooperative is dedicated. If this is the response you will go on to question 75.

Employer: person who operates his own economic business and has one or more salaried or day laborers under his charge. If this is the response, you will go on to question 75.

Self-employed: person who without depending on an employer operates his own economic business without having remunerated workers, allowing for one or more family workers that are not remunerated. There is a distinction between those who have some installation or investment in order to carry out the activity (with premise) and those who don't possess it (a premise). In both questions, you will go on to question 75.

Household member not receiving wage/salary: person who works for the company or business of a family member that lives within the dwelling and from which he does not receive a salary, wages, or goods for his work. If this is the response, you will go on to question 75.

Public program employee: people who are working in transitory jobs created in the framework of social programs to help the low-income population. The person can declare working for example in the Intendencia, the program of Barrida Otoñal, but it doesn't deal with a public employer but rather a job in a public employment program. The same occurs with the people who are found working in the program Trabajo por Uruguay del Plan de Atencion Nacional a la Emergencia Social (PANES).

Attending to the criteria indicated and the response of the interviewee the corresponding code will be circled.
