Who is household representative? (Column 5)

Which person of the household who should be considered as the "household representative", or rather as the representative of the household from outside the household, likewise the owners must be allowed to determine this. In case of doubt, note an employed person of the middle generation as the household representative. "Household representative" should not be confused with "housekeeping", or rather work in the household. Tenants cannot be the household representative.

[] Head of household
[] Wife, husband
[] Common-law partner

[] Daughter-in-law, son-in-law
[] Granddaughter, grandson
[] Mother, father (also: parents-in-law, grandparents, step parents)
[] Other relatives
[] Not related

Column 4, Position in household:
In this column the kinship to the head of the household listed in the first space (e.g. wife, husband, life partner, daughter, son-in-law, grandchild, niece, etc.) should be indicated.

Because the census list is not processed by computer, the position in the household (kinship to the head of the household) should be copied to question 5 on the corresponding person questionnaire.

Enumerator guideline:
Please make sure that the information is copied to the corresponding person questionnaire.

Purpose of the question:
The position in household (kinship) forms the basis for the household and family statistics which are needed for the purpose of planning and assessment of administrative measures, like for example, for the projection of the housing supply or if additional places in kindergartens are needed in a region.

7. Position in household:
Explanation: In order to show the relationship of household members to families, please mark the relationship the person has to the "head of household." Usually, the person contributing the most to the household income is to be designated as the head of household. If income is more or less equal, it is up to the household to designate the person who is to be marked as head of household.

In households consisting solely of unrelated persons, it is irrelevant to family and household statistics who is marked as the head of household.

For children who were brought into the marriage or consensual union, "daughter/son" should be marked, [p. 76] even if the latter are blood children of the husband or wife only.

The term "head of household" is felt to be disagreeable by some persons. Because of that, other expressions were sought in preceding pilot surveys. The results were, however, not encouraging: the understanding of the question and the usefulness of the answers were insufficient. For question-technical reasons, it had to be reverted back to the archaic (but understood by all) term "head of household."
With this information the families living in a household are statistically delimited and their relation to the remaining household members is depicted. Data about the different family types (full families, single parent families, etc.) is important for the planning of family and socio-political measures, for example: level of the family subsidy, scaling of the child tax credit, fare reductions for families on public transportation.

Question 1. Relationship to person No 1 in the household

The code corresponding to the prompt from the list of possible responses is to be marked.

For the household member specified first within the household the prompt "person recorded first within household" is to be marked. All other household members are to get codes corresponding to prompts required (e.g., if a person questioned is a son of the first person, the code corresponding to the prompt "daughter, son" is to be marked. If a person questioned has kinship or in-law relationship to the reference (No. 1) person, which is different from those listed (e.g., nephew), the reply corresponding to the "other relation degree┬╗ is be marked.

If a household is a one-person household, a mark against the reply "person recorded first within household" is to be made.

Persons living in a given household, but being not related to any household member either by blood or by law (e.g., nanny or servant living in the household and contributing to it) are to be marked as "non-relative".

For persons usually living together, but making no common provisions for food or other essential for living and fully or partially supported by the government, public or religious organizations in institutions like boarding houses for the aged and invalids, children's homes, monasteries, etc. (the institutional population), except those related to each other by blood or law (e.g., husband and wife in a boarding house for the aged or invalids or brother and sister in a children's home, the reply "person recorded first within household" is to be marked.


For each household member (regardless of the age and marital status) living in the same household with both parents or one of them, the serial number of his (her) mother (related by blood or not) within the dwelling, i.e. the number indicated against her name in the list of residents in the dwelling (column 1), is to be recorded. If there is no mother in the household, the number of father is to be entered. If there is neither mother nor father within the household, no number is to be recorded.

For each member of household (regardless of age and marital status) residing in the same household with his/her both parents or with one of them, the serial number under which the mother is recorded in column 1 of the List of household members should be entered in a designated box. If there is no mother in the household, but only the father, the number under which he is recorded in the List of household members should be entered. If there is neither mother nor father in the household, nothing should be completed.

For respondents recorded in the List of persons residing (staying) in specialized institutions, organizations, and those homeless under number 1, the answer "person listed first in the household" should be completed; for all other persons in the list the answer "non-relative" should be completed;

[6] Families
Families are formed at the turn of the year from persons living in the same dwelling according to the population information system of the Population Register Centre.

Child
In the family statistics children comprise the following persons living with their parents:

-- biological children,
-- adopted children,
-- biological children and adopted children of one of the spouses.

Foster children and children in the care of the family are not classified as children.
The definition of child has changed since 1990. A child is now defined as a person who lives with his or her parents irrespective of his or her marital status, unless the person has a spouse or children who live in the same household-dwelling unit. In 1990 only unmarried persons were counted as children. So while in 1990 widowed or divorced persons living with their parents were classified as not belonging to families, since 1992 they have been regarded as members of the family.

Cohabiting couple
A cohabiting couple is defined as two spouseless adults of different sex aged 18 and over and occupying the same dwelling on a permanent basis, provided their age difference is less than 16 years and they are not siblings. In case the couple has a common child these specifications do not apply. Same-sex persons living together are not inferred as cohabiting couples. Only registered partnerships are recorded in the statistics.

Family status
Family members are grouped by family status as follows:

-- spouse, no children
-- spouse with children
-- cohabiting partner, no children
-- cohabiting partner with children
-- partner in a registered partnership, no children
-- partner in a registered partnership with children
-- father/mother without spouse
-- child.

In the family statistics children comprise all persons, regardless of age, who live with their parents, or the spouse's biological or adopted children, but not foster children or children in the care of the family.

5. Household status
The enumerator at first should select the head of household and afterwards the (family and other household) relation against the head of household of the other household members will be defined. After completing this procedure -- irrespective of the presence/absence of the given person the corresponding answer should be marked.

[p.15]

Head of household

In defining the head of household, the principles on page 24 should be taken into account.

Spouse

Wife is the female living in legal marriage with the head of household.

Consensual partner

Cohabiting (consensual) partner is the female living with the head of household without a legal marriage.

Child

In case the head of household is the parent of a definite person irrespective of his age and marital status should be enumerated as "child". In case. Adopted or bred children will be enumerated as "children" too.

Grandchild, etc.

While defining the family status attention should be given to the relation of the particularly person to the head of household. That is the answer "grandchild" can be underlined only if the head of household is the grandfather of the person, while a person will be marked as grandfather only if the head of household is his grandchild., etc.

Other relatives

If the printed answers do not describe the relation between the given person and the head of household (e.g. cousin, brother/sister of the spouse, aunt, etc.), the respective denotation should be written on the dotted line.

Lone person

If a person does not live with anybody else, the answer "lone person" will be marked. In case lone persons (e.g. friends) other than relatives form a household one of the persons will be marked as head of household.

Other non-relatives

If there are living in the household persons other than relatives, the term expressing their position (e.g. maid, student in board, child in state care, person supported for a material compensation, etc.) should be written on the dotted line.

3. Family status

While defining the family status, the reference person is in case of married couple type families the husband, in case of lone parent with child(ren) families the father or the mother respectively.

If married couple type families "husband (1)" and "wife (2)" is the correct entry, even if the partners live in consensual partnership.

"Father (or) mother (3)" should be marked if only one of the parents live with the child(ren). The answer is "child (4)" if children of persons marked with family status "husband (1)", "wife (2)" or "father, mother (3)". Family status of adopted children and nurslings is "child (4)" too.

"Ascending line relative (5)" is the family status of the parents, grandparents and great-grandparents of persons classified as "husband (1)", "wife (2)" or "father, mother (3)".

"Other relative (6)" is the code for the persons not listed above (siblings of husband/wife, spouse of sibling's of husband/wife, etc.). In case blood-related persons not forming a family live together (e.g. three siblings) each person should be coded as "other relatives (6)".

The code "non-relative (7)" is marked if non-relatives living with the family (e.g. person in state care, boarder or person supported upon contract.

"Person living alone (8)" code is entered in case a person lives alone. The category includes the non-relatives living together (e.g. two friends).

1. Data on the persons living in the dwelling

The on the first page of the dwelling questionnaire will be filled in with the help of the respondent. The persons living in the dwelling will be grouped by households, within the households by families. By listing the family members the sequence should follow the family ties, or rather the family status. The printed versions at the table will help the classification of the family members. The persons belonging to the same family will be allotted by the same family number while those belonging to the same household will be marked with the same household number.

A common household is a group of persons living together in a common housing unit or in a part of it, bearing together, at least partly, the costs of living (i.e. daily expenses, meals). Subtenants, night-lodgers and co-tenants should be marked always with individual household numbers.

Consequently before starting the enumeration it has to be defined the number of households, families living in the dwelling, than the families and the households should be "set up". The next step is the fixing of the family status.

Family is formed from the following persons living in a common household:

-- Married couple with or without child(ren);

-- Persons living in consensual union with or without child(ren);
[p. 6]
-- Mother or father living with child(ren) (unless the spouse or cohabiting partner does not live in the same dwelling, while

The following persons do not live in a family:

-- The related or non-related persons (other than listed above), e.g. two siblings, three friends, etc.;

-- Lone persons.
Fixing the family status (heading "d")

One of the printed answers will be underlined:

-- "Husband (1)" or "wife(2)" in case of legally married male and female;

-- "Consensual partner (3)" in case of males and females living in consensual partnership without legal marriage;

-- "Mother or father living with at least one child (4)" in case one of the parents lives with the children);

-- "Child (5)" in case of a child (own or foster) of the previously mentioned persons irrespective of the age of the person;

-- "Ascending relative (6)" in case of parent, grand-parent, brother-in-law, father-in-law of a "husband", "wife", "consensual partner" or "lone parent with children" in case the ascending relative lives in the family without his/her spouse;

-- "Other relative (7)" in case of any non-ascending relative not forming an independent family (e.g. aunt, sibling, grandchild);

-- "Non-relative (8)" in case of a persons other than blood-related (e.g. child in state care).

In case the household consist of one person the answer is "lone person "9") while in case of several -- related and non-related -- persons not forming a family the answer is either

-- "Other relative (7)" or
-- "Non-relative (8)".

The title of use of dwelling (heading "e") should be marked in case of every person.

From the responses to Question 3 it is possible to build up a picture of the changing family situation in Ireland. In previous censuses persons were asked to give their relationship to Person 1 only. While this adequately catered for the most prevalent family types in most households, it did not cater for second families within the one household or the more atypical type of families, for instance where step-children are involved.
In the current formulation Persons 2 to 5 are required to give their relationship to the person(s) previously listed while for households consisting of 6 or more persons, Persons 6 and higher are required to give their relationship to Persons 1 to 4 only. This was done for reasons of space on the form. This layout will enable each of the families in a multi-generational household to be accurately distinguished. Information in relation to families which have been reconstituted following the break-up of previous marriages can also be determined.
The results based on the responses to this question will allow the changing nature of families in Ireland to be charted and will help to plan housing and social welfare programmes.
The example at the back of the Household Form shows how to complete the relationship question for a household consisting of: Helen Murphy, her husband Thomas, their daughter Catherine and grandchild Aoife (Catherine's daughter).

The relationship question is designed to determine families within households. This includes where there are two or more families in the one household. For example, a household consisting of an adult daughter living with her two parents and her own child would be counted as a two family household. The example given below shows how the question should be answered for the child in this situation, where the parents are Persons1 and 2 on the form, the adult daughter is person 3 and the child is person 4.

For head of household is considered household member contributing mainly to defraying the cost of household keeping.
Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image
37 Relation to the head of household (please write in respectively: head of household, wife or husband, son, daughter, grandson, father, etc.) (Question 7) [p.52]
1. For a person, who, in accordance with the rules set forth in 31, has been considered to be head of household, the "head of household" title shall be written down in question 7. The same title shall be written down for the individuals creating single-person households.
2. For all other representatives of a given household, the relation to the head of household shall be specified by writing in respectively: "husband" ("wife"), "son", "daughter", "stepson", "stepdaughter", "father", "mother-in-law", "brother", "grandson", "granddaughter", "aunt", or "distant relative" if there is no possibility of specifying the kinship. A person, who is not related to the head of household but is considered to be a member of the household due to the provided financial support, shall have the "not related to the head of household" answer written down, or, in abbreviation "n. related".
It must be taken account that such levels of relation to the head of household as "tenant", "subtenant", or "co-tenant" cannot be used while specifying the kinship. They are members of their respective household and should be considered "head of households" in the social units they are members of.
3. The principles of closest kinship shall apply while identifying relation to the head of household, so, in the first place such individuals as husband or wife, children or parents, etc. Individuals in a relationship having children who are not engaged shall be registered next to one another. However, if there has been a mistake, due to which it is impossible to keep the proper order, the annotation shall not be corrected, nor shall be a new form used. It is enough to justify the relation in a comprehensible manner (for example, "Janek's wife", "grandson, Czes?aw's son").
4. If there are certain individuals living in a dwelling but not supporting the household financially (such a case is discussed in question 31, point 5 on page 47), such individuals shall be classified with proper terms and titles, such as: "help", "apprentice", "agricultural worker", "student", "hired worker".
It should be remembered that the above concerns only single individuals. If a help lives in a given dwelling together with his or her child, then they create a separate household ("head of household" and "daughter" or "son"). Such individuals may be both permanent and temporal inhabitants (typically staying in a dwelling for over 2 months).
5. If in a given dwelling there are also other individuals staying there in a temporary manner, then they shall be registered as follows:

a) If the duration of the stay has been specified as lasting up to 2 months and if they are related to the head of household the relation shall be specified similarly to other inhabitants or, if there is no kinship, they should be classified as "guests".
b) If the duration of the stay has been specified as lasting over 2 months it should be specified whether or not the said individuals support the household financially. Afterwards, the division into household shall be made in the same manner as for permanent inhabitants.

7.3. Classical (conventional) family questionnaire

In this question we have to fill-in a table with several codes to establish the relation of the private household members and the reference person.

Every classic household must have a reference person.
By reference person, we understand the family member that is considered as such by the other members, has to be a resident in the dwelling, is 18 years old or older and preferentially is responsible for the dwelling.

This reference person must always be a dwelling resident, but may be absent on the census moment.

In families where these conditions do not apply, use the oldest person as the reference person.

On Column 2 you must collect the complete name of the reference person and the first and last name of all the others.

On Column 3 you must apply the corresponding relationship code to every individual in relation to the reference person.
The codes available in this column are:

Codes to be used in the relationship description

02 Spouse
03 Son/daughter not married
04 Son/daughter married
05 Foster son/daughter not married
06 Foster son/daughter married

Column 4 should only be used for married individuals or living as such with the corresponding spouse number in column 1.

Columns 5 and 6 are only filled-in by individuals who have a father or a mother residing in the dwelling, with the corresponding code number of the father (column 5) and the mother (column 6), using for that purpose the code number that is in column 1.

For columns 4, 5 and 6 you must use only the codes shown on column 1.
To correctly fill-in the family questionnaire you must ask:

-- Which are the family relationships of every single person with the reference person?
-- Who is the spouse if the reference person is married or is living as such?
-- Who are the parents, in those cases where the parents live together with the reference person?

This could be also one of the persons who is not a part of the family nucleus and namely the one who is bringing the higher income, the one who is older or the owner or main tenant of the dwelling;
d) in the case of households with 2 or more family nuclei with or without other related or unrelated persons --the household head is considered the older nucleus head or the one who is bringing the higher income, the one who is older or the owner or main tenant of the dwelling;
e) non-family households (which do not have family nuclei) -- the household head is considered the older male with the higher income or the older female with the higher income if all the males are pensioners or in subsistence.


In other cases not counted in any of the above-mentioned categories, the household head is considered the person declared and acknowledged to be so by the other members of the household.

Question 1. Your relationship to persons you reside with (in regard to person No. 1 in this enumeration unit)
Mark one of eleven suggested prompts.
[An image was omitted from the original document]
Person No. 1 of the household (first in the list of household members) should be marked as the "Person No. 1", all other members - according to available prompts. For example, if a respondent is a son (own, adopted or step son) of the reference person, mark the "daughter, son" prompt.
If a household is represented by a single person, mark the "Person No. 1" option.
If a respondent has a different relationship to the reference family member, or different characteristics from those indicated above (for example, a nephew), mark the "other degree of relationship, characteristics" prompt.
If the answer of the respondent makes it difficult to identify the proper option, refer to the last page of the cover, "Census Documents for the Dwelling", where you can find solutions to some difficult cases.
Those who belong to the given household but are not related to person No. l (e.g., a nurse-maid, servants and their family members living in the household and contributing therein) should be identified by the "Unrelated" prompt ( e.g., the "Unrelated" prompt would be marked for a nurse-maid and her daughter).
For each member of the household (regardless of the age or marital status) living together with one or two parents in one household, in the special field of the form you should indicate the ordinal number of his/her mother (own, step or foster) assigned to her in column 1, List A, Form S (she was recorded under the same number in Forms K or D. If there is no mother in the household, and only the father (own, step or foster) is available, write down the father's number. If there is no mother or father in the household, no number is needed.
For the population of collective households:
- the person listed under No. 1 in List A, Form S is identified by the "Person No. 1" option, all others - by the "Unrelated" prompt.
If among the members of collective households there are people related to each other (e.g., man and wife in a boarding-house for elderly and disabled people or brother and sister in an orphanage), one of them should be recorded first in the dwelling, the other - second, indicating their relationship in a standard manner, while all others should be logged after them and identified by the "Unrelated" prompt.

Question 1. The first member of a household shall be marked with "the first one recorded". Other household members shall be marked by the relationship with the first one recorded.

One of the following prompts shall be marked.
[Omitted image examples.]

Person who is the first one to be recorded within the household shall be marked in accordance with a prompt "the first one recorded". Other household members - a mark in accordance with one of the following given prompts.
A "wife, husband" prompt mark individuals who are married or live in a civil union. The same mark shall be given to the one who calls himself/herself "the civil wife (husband)", "future wife/husband", "groom (bride)", "boyfriend (girlfriend)", "beloved person" in relation to the individual who was the first to be recorded (provided that these people live in the same household).
A "daughter, son" prompt is marked by own and step children, including adopted children, stepson (stepdaughter). Children under wardship, who are non-relatives and not related to the individual, who was the first to be recorded, are considered to be "non-relatives".
A "mother, father" prompt will be marked by the parents, both related and not-related (stepmother, stepfather).
A "sister, brother" prompt will be marked by sisters and brothers, both related and step.
A "mothers-in-law, fathers-in-law" prompt will be marked by parents of a husband or a wife who was the first to be recorded. With that it does not matter whether marriage was registered or not.
A "sister-in-law (daughter-in-law), son-in-law (brother-in-law)" prompt will be marked by a woman or a man if the first one to be recorded was relative of her (his) husband (wife) regardless whether marriage was registered or not.
A "grandmother, grandfather" prompt will be marked by related and step grandmothers and grandfathers.
A "grandson, granddaughter" prompt will be marked by related and step grandsons and granddaughters, including children of step-daughter (step-son) of the individual who was the one to be recorded.
A "another degree of kinship (of relationship)" prompt will be marked, if a respondent is related to the member of a household in some other way, in addition to the listed (for example, nephews, wife's brother, husband's brother, husband's sister, wife's sister, husband of one's wife's sister, cousins, second cousins, uncle, aunt and etc.).

[pg.31]

If a census taker has doubts about which prompt to mark according to the answer of the respondent, he shall use additional tables on the second page of the Cover, where some of the cases of blood relations are listed.

A "non-relative" prompt shall be marked for those who are a part of this household, but does not have any relative (blood) relations with the first one recorded (for example, hired housekeeper who helps to keep the households - baby-sitter, governess and members of their families, who live within the household and contribute to it, children and seniors under wardship and patronized, who are not relatives to the first one recorded) - for example, a "non-relative" prompt will be marked by the baby-sitter and her daughter. With that, one shall indicate in a special field how he/she is related to the first one to be recorded within the household (for example, a baby-sitter, a daughter of a baby-sitter, a hired employee, tutored step-child).

Every member of a household (regardless of age and whether he is married or not) living within the same household with both parents or only one of them, shall be marked with a serial number of his/her mother (either related or step-mother) from column B of Table 1 of Form S. If there is no mother in the household, and there is only father (related or step-father), then the serial number of a father will be indicated. If there is neither mother nor father in the household, then neither mark is put.

Serial number of a mother (father) is put only in case they belong to the same household with the respondent. If children live with their parents in the same premise but refer to other premises, then the number of a mother (father) should not be marked.

In case household consists of one person then this person is indicated as "the first one to be recorded".

[Omitted example images.]

Individuals who permanently reside in dormitories, hotels and rest houses are regarded as independent households. For example, if three students live in the same room of a dormitory and consider that each of them lives independently (not combining the sources for food and utilities), then they shall be enumerated as three independent households, each of them consisting of 1 person.

[pg.32]

If the think they live as one household (keep the house, combine their income either wholly or partially), they make up one household, consisting of non-relatives. If two of them live within one household (keep the house, combine their income either wholly or partially), and the third one lives separately (not combining their means for food and utilities), then they shall be enumerated as two households, consisting of two and one person respectively. Family, permanently residing in a hotel, is enumerated as a private household, consisting of relatives.
In collective households the question 1 is filled in the following way:

- A person who is filled in Table 1 of the form S under number 1 shall be marked under "the first one recorded" prompt.
- Other members of a collective household within this premise will be marked under "non-relative" prompt.

Census form A. Population data
Census form A. Population data was completed by each member of the household. For a minor citizen or a citizen who could not provide data on his/her own, the data should be provided by their legal representative, a family member or the owner of the house.

Household inhabitants
Residential household consists of persons living together in one apartment.
A census household consists of persons who share one apartment on the basis of family or other relationships within a single household. The census household is a basic unit and is not further divided.
We recognize:

- Family census households (consisting of at least two persons in a direct family relationship, in a marital relationship or in a consensual union) and within them:
- Complete family census households (consisting of married or unmarried couple, married or unmarried couple with children),
- Incomplete family census households (made up of one parent with at least one child (regardless of the child's age) taking into account joint economic ties,
- And other census households, including:
- Multi-person, non-family households (consisting of two or more persons, related or unrelated, jointly managed but not forming a family household),
- Households of individuals (consisting of one natural person living alone in the apartment, either as a lodger or living together with another census householder but living independently).

The household consists of persons living together in the same apartment and jointly covering any major expenditures of the household (expenditures for the use of the apartment, meals, maintenance of the apartment or house, heating, electricity, gas, and others). The amount of joint coverage of the household cost is irrelevant. A single household may consist of one or more census households.

Relations between household members
Data on relations between household members provide information on what kind of relationship (relatives or other) is between persons living in one dwelling (residential household). Each residential household needs to be headed by one person. The head of the household could be any adult member who, according to the agreement of its members, was habitually resident in the apartment (he/she spent most of the year there, usually spending the day or night in the apartment). Other members in the household were defined in relation to the head of the household as a spouse, partner, son, daughter, son-in-law, bride, grandson, great-grandson, father, mother, mother-in-law, father-in-law, other relatives, a stranger, or lodger.

Relationship to the household reference person (description) and relationship to the household reference person (column 8)

The text for the household reference person, entered in row 01, is already entered. The code of the relationship in column 8 is also already determined and entered.

If more than one person lives in the private household, the enumerator must determine for each person the relationship to the household reference person and enter in column 8 the code of the relationship. The list of codes for coding the relationship is on the last page of Guidelines for Enumerators.

Child (son/daughter) is entered by the enumerator for every child living in the household with one or both parents. The age of the child is no important. It is only important that the child has never been married or that the child does not live in a consensual union with another person. It is also not important whether the reference person is the child's biological father/mother, which means that the answer "child" is entered by the enumerator also for the child(ren) of the spouse or partner and for all adopted children.

If the entered relationship to the household reference person is not specially mentioned in the list of codes (e.g. aunt, uncle), the enumerator enters in column 8 code 12 (other relative).

[p. 25]

For persons who are not members of the household in which they temporarily live, the enumerator enters temporarily present and code 60 in column 8.

For persons temporarily living abroad for more than a year, the enumerator enters in column 8 code 61, irrespective of the relationship to the reference person.

A person temporarily living abroad while other members live in his or her household must not be entered as the household reference person.

If the entire household is temporarily living abroad, the enumerator enters all persons into the POM/GO List of persons in the household as other private households. For all household members code 61 must be entered in column 8. The already entered code 00 for the household reference person should be crossed and left of the field code 61 should be entered.


8 Relation to the household reference person

The data are copied by the enumerator from column 8 of the POM/GO List of persons in the household for all persons, irrespective of whether they are household members or they are only temporarily present in the household/dwelling.

For a person living in the household alone (a single household), the enumerator always enters code 00.

For persons who according to Guidelines for Enumerators are not entered into the POM/GO List of persons in the household (institutional households), the enumerator enters data directly on the P-3 Census questionnaire for persons so that the first person in the institutional household gets code 20 and all other persons in the institutional household get code 21.

For persons who are not household members and who according to Guidelines for Enumerators are not entered into the POM/GO List of persons in the household, the enumerator enters for all persons code 60 directly on the P-3 Census questionnaire for persons.

Question 17. What is your degree of kinship to the household head?


(For those not living in this home continuously, mark the "Visitor" box. In places where a household is not constituted, do not ask this question.)

Whether they are relatives of the household head or not, for those not living continuously in this home, the "Visitor" box is to be marked. For individuals in places where households are not constituted (such as a military post, a jail, a hospital, a train, a boat, a bus, a bus terminal, a hostel, a school, a dormitory, a hotel, etc.), this question is not to be asked of those individuals present.

For people being administered the census, an "X" is to be placed into the box corresponding to the degree of kinship with the household head.

Explained below are points requiring attention when asking the question about the degree of kinship to the household head:

1. An "X" mark is to be placed into the "Visitor" box for those people who are not household members and who, at the time the census, are being administered the census together with the household (whether related by kinship to the household head or not).

[An example in the original document has been omitted here]

2. For those lacking any kinship tie to the household head, but living in the same home, an "X" is to be placed into the box for the "Other" option. For example; a domestic servant, guard, gardener and other such people.

3. For those living together with the household, but whose kinship relation to the household head is other than "Spouse", "Son", "Daughter", "Father", "Mother", "Brother", "Father-in-law", "Mother-in-law", "Daughter-in-law", "Son-in-law", and "Grandchild" (For example: for a maternal uncle, maternal aunt, paternal uncle, sister-in-law, cousin, an "X" is to be marked in the box for the option "Other" option).

[An example in the original document has been omitted here]

4. People living together, whether bound by blood ties or not, who are living together for education, work, and other reasons, are to be considered as a household, and the person among these people declaring him/herself to be household head is to be accepted as being the household head. For other individuals, an "X" is to be placed into the applicable boxes, based on their degree of kinship.
