The general census of the population of 1978 shall take place on all of the territory of the Popular Republic of Benin on April 28th, 1978. This date will be referred to as "Census Date" in this manual.
This general census constitutes what is technically called a de facto census, which means that all persons physically present on the national territory regardless of their nationality (at the exception of members of diplomatic missions and their affiliates i.e. persons covered by diplomatic immunity) must be counted at the location in which they are on the day of the census.
Household type
Two household types are to be considered: ordinary households and collective households.
In the case of an ordinary household, the census agent must ask the head of household whether "the household cultivates a field," and then check the "Yes" or "No" box on whether the household is agricultural or not.
In the case of a collective household, the census agent must first write the name of the establishment [Examples are not presented here], then check the box corresponding to the type of establishment.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

2-3.1 Building: A building is a single construction covered with a roof (of any type) and generally limited by outside walls (of any type). A building can be:

An isolated house.
A house in a strip (often rectangular and compartmentalized).
A building (with several stories).

Several buildings can be situated, or not, in a closed [gated] space.
A concession is constituted of buildings grouped together, giving access or not, to a central courtyard. A concession can be gated or not.
Note that a building could be used to house one or several households, or none.
2-3.2 Dwelling Unit: A dwelling unit is an area (part of a building) or a collection of areas used for housing purposes by a household at the time of the census.
Note that dwelling units in the same building as other establishments such as a hospital, a hotel, etc., must be considered separately and counted as dwelling units. For example, a house, separated or not and independent or not, situated within the enclosure of a hospital
Or a school to be used by the director and his family must be considered a dwelling unit. Similarly, independent apartments in the same building as a hospital or a school must be considered dwelling units.
2-3.3 The household: The concept of the "household" is founded on the arrangements taken by persons, individually or collectively, to satisfy their vital needs.
There are two categories of households: the ordinary household and the collective household.
i) Ordinary Household: This is a grouping of persons, related or not, who recognize the authority of the same individual called "head of household," and whose resources and spending are communal. More than often, these persons live under the same roof, in the same courtyard, or the same concession.
Examples of ordinary households:

A man and his wife or wives, with or without children;
A man and his wife or wives, with their unmarried children, and his parents;
A man and his wife or wives, living with their married children, and associating together to satisfy certain essential needs (the group accepts the authority of one person);
A single man or a single woman with or without children and providing alone to his/her essential needs, alimentary and other;
A widowed or divorced man or woman with or without children;
A person renting a room and who does not take his/her meals with the household shall be considered to form an independent ordinary household. This is the case of single persons.
A group of single individuals sharing the same accommodation constitute an ordinary household if these individuals recognize the authority of the same person as head of household. Otherwise, they constitute separate households.

ii) Collective household: A collective household is defined as a group of persons, generally unrelated, who live together in an establishment for discipline, travel, health, education, or professional purposes.
Establishments in which collective households are found are: barracks, boarding schools, prisons, monasteries, convents and religious communities, orphanages, mental health institutions, hotels, temporary work site barracks.
If an ordinary household lives in one of the above-mentioned establishments (household of a prison director, hospital director), it shall be counted as an ordinary household. Such persons occupy accommodations relating to their function.
Family nucleus: is a group constituted by a couple with or without children, or an adult with at least one of his/her children. It is constituted by persons with marital and/or biological (fatherly or motherly) relations.

1. Dwelling

Dwelling is any physical place, constructed or adapted for housing people. The following are dwellings: a house, an apartment, a single room, a rustic cabin, a chujlla [hut made with branches lashed to a stick frame], a pahuichi [shack made of wood and branches, cane, or straw], barracks, a military base, a hospital, etc.

Also considered a dwelling is any type of provisional construction, like caves, tents, etc., if they are inhabited at the time of the census.

[p. 6]

Dwelling is a place that accommodates a collective household, that is, a group of people who share the dwelling in a non-familial system, for reasons of work, health, discipline, religion, punishment, etc. For example: convents, jails, barracks, hospitals, military base, etc.


Question 1. Type of dwelling

Dwellings have been classified as private and collective, based on the system in which the occupants live. Let's remember that if there is a family system, it is a private dwelling. On the other hand, if the occupants live together for non-family reasons, that is: work, study, imprisonment, health, etc., this is a collective dwelling.

Private dwelling

1. Independent house. Is a building which is accessed directly from the outside by one or various entrances.

[p. 21]

2. Apartment. Is a dwelling located inside a building, together with others of the same type, which is accessed from common use areas, hallways, corridors, etc.

In general, there is a water supply and toilet facilities for the private use of the household.

3. Single room(s) in a tenement house, apartment, or independent house. Is part of a house, apartment, or tenement house, occupied by a household; generally with a water supply and toilet facilities shared between various households.

The primary dwelling, frequently occupied by the owner of the house or apartment, should not be included in this category. This dwelling should be considered as an independent house or apartment, as appropriate.

[p. 22]

4. Rustic Cabin, hut (pahuichi). Rustically-constructed buildings made from materials of local origin, for example: walls made of mud, cane; roof made of straw, palms; with the floor generally being made of dirt.

5. Premises not constructed as a dwelling. Counted in this group are sheds, garages, barns, etc., that are inhabited at the time of the Census.

[p. 23]

6. Improvised Dwelling. Is any shelter or unstable construction that serves as a place of habitation for a household at the time of the Census, possibly being made out of waste or discarded materials; included in this group are canvasses, tents, railroad cars, etc. In this case, specify appropriately.

1.2. Collective dwelling

1. Hotel, Boarding House, or Lodging. Is any building used as a temporary accommodation for people. Included in this category will be those family houses that have six or more boarders, on the day of the Census.

2. Barracks, Military or Police Establishment. Corresponds to military and police premises in which people under an established disciplinary system reside.

3. Hospital, Clinic, or Nursing Home. Corresponds to those establishments that house people for health reasons.

4. Jail or Correctional Establishment. Corresponds to those establishments where people under a system of imprisonment live.

5. Convent or boarding school. Dwelling that houses religious communities or people accommodated for reasons of study.

6. Other. Those collective households not included in the previous categories should be recorded. For example, barracks. In this case, specify adequately.

[p. 24]

Note. If the dwelling is collective, after recording the type of dwelling, continue directly on to the questions on population in Chapter III, since the other dwelling data are requested only for private dwellings.

Question 4. Dwelling type (completed through observation)


Two types of dwellings will be observed as an enumerator: private dwellings and collective dwellings.

What is a private dwelling?

For the census, a private dwelling is meant to be inhabited by one or more households or a group of persons, related or unrelated, who live together as a family .

What is a collective dwelling?

For the census, a collective dwelling is inhabited by a group of persons, usually unrelated, who live together but not as a family.

Collective dwellings are classified by their use as: barracks, jails, hospitals, convents, asylums, shelters, or welfare institutions (asilos), encampments, etc.

[p. 49]

Important:

Other private dwellings, where one or more persons live, may exist within a collective dwelling. For example: a superintendent [superintendents - porteros often have an apartment in the building as part of their pay.] in a hospital, a hotel administrator, the families of officers in military bases, etc.

In this case, one form is used for the private dwelling and other forms are used for the persons living in the collective dwelling.

Reminder: a different number corresponds to each additional form and should be recorded in the dwelling form number box.

Private dwellings are classified, according to their structure, as the following:

[Illustrations of a pahuichi, an apartment building, and a tenement are provided]

House/Rustic Hut or Cabin/Pahuichi

[A Pahuichi is a hybrid construction; between a Spanish (peninsular) rustic cabin and indigenous (Bolivian) architecture]

A construction in which one or more private dwellings can be found and that has direct access from the street or from a common area.

Apartment:

An apartment is a dwelling that is found in a building or house and which generally is equipped with an indoor bathroom and kitchen.

Independent room or quarters:

An independent room is a room that, together with other rooms, forms part of a dwelling and has an exit to one or more common areas (hallways or patios). Bathrooms are generally shared with other persons from other dwellings. Independent rooms are usually found in tenements.

[p. 50]

[Illustrations of an improvised dwelling and a granary (not meant for human habitation) are provided]

Improvised dwelling:

An improvised dwelling is a space in which persons spent the night before the census day modified to function as a dwelling. These usually do not have bathrooms or kitchens. They can be constructed of waste materials such as cardboard, tinplate, boards, etc. Examples include: toldos [indigenous tents/improvised house], chujllas [huts made with branches lashed to a stick frame], anacas [a type of indigenous tent]

Mobile dwelling:

A place of abode made to be transported, such as: boats, railcars, tents, etc.

Building not meant for human habitation:

This includes stables, granaries, factories, garages, warehouses, offices, caves, natural shelters, guard houses, etc., where persons spent the night prior to census day.

Transients and persons who live on the street:

Transients are those who are passing through a place, having another place of usual residence. E.g.: persons who spent the night prior to census day at a market, airport, or tranca [a rest-stop or toll area where traffic on the highway system must stop in order to pay a toll].

Persons living on the street are those who do not have a dwelling; e.g.: beggars, alcoholics, drug addicts, etc.

If any of these cases are encountered, the following instructions should be followed when filling out the census form:

[p. 51]

The information for questions 1.1, 2.2, and 3 is recorded. Boxes for questions 1.2 and 2.1 are left blank. In Chapter B, the oval corresponding to transients and persons who live on the street is filled in. Finally, the enumerator should skip to Chapter D.

139. Columns E8 - E14: Housing unit

These questions relate to the housing unit occupied by the household you are enumerating. A housing unit is defined as "the unit of accommodation for a household". You will usually be able to answer some of these questions yourself simply from observation. However, if in doubt, ask, then circle the most appropriate answer code. Note that in each of these columns you are to circle only one code.

The relevant portion of the sample questionnaire is shown on page 59.

140. Column E8: Type of housing unit

This question refers to the housing unit in which the household you are enumerating lives. There are different types of housing units, identified and listed below. Circle the appropriate code for the household you are enumerating:

[] 01 Traditional (lolwapa):
A lolwapa is a residential place comprising one or more huts and/or other structures which are fenced together. Such malwapa are mostly found in rural areas.

[] 02 Mixed:
This is in a situation where the dwelling unit or lelwapa is made up of a mixture of traditional houses and the modern type of housing units.

[] 03 Detached house:
This is a building that stands on its own, without sharing a wall with any other building. In many cases a detached house will also be fenced. A traditional hut standing on its own is to be classified as a lolwapa.

[] 04 Semi-detached house:
This is a building that shares a wall with just one other building, but which has its own separate entrance. It may be one or two storeys high.

[] 05 Town/terraced house:
This is a building, in a group of many others sharing walls on two sides; each building has its own entrance, and the building may be one, two or even three storeys high. A "town house" does not mean a "house in town". Note that the last unit at the end of a Town/Terraced House is not classified as Semi-Detached.

[] 06 Flat, apartments:
This is a unit of accommodation in a building. The building itself will usually have a main entrance and each flat will also have its own separate entrance; the building is usually 2 or more storeys high, but each flat forms part of just one storey or floor.

[] 07 Part of commercial building:
Sometimes part of a commercial building is used as residential quarters, particularly by small shopkeepers. Factory buildings may occasionally be used as housing units either by security personnel or staff of building contractors.

[] 08 Movable:
This is a housing unit, which can be transported from place to place either as a unit or in component parts. Examples are tents, tin-huts, port camps, caravans, etc.

[] 09 Shack:
This is a temporary shelter built of remnants of packing materials, e.g. cardboard boxes, polythene sheets, etc. Shacks are mostly found in urban areas.

[] 10 Room(s):
In urban areas, particularly on SHHA plots and on low-cost plots, rooms in a building are sublet to tenants. Sometimes additional rooms are built on the plot for letting purposes.

Brazil 2010 — source variable BR2010A_0034 — Unit classification
Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Private Household
This is the residence where the relationship between the occupants is dictated by kinship, dependency or domestic standards of living.
The Private Residences can be classified as: permanent or improvised. Notice!

Permanent Private Household
It is the household that was built to serve exclusively for housing as of the date of reference, and was intended to serve as housing for one or more people.

Attention!
Remember, the date of reference for the Census is from the night of July 31, 2010 to August 1, 2010.

The apartments in buildings or live-in hotels and housing in tenements, rooming houses, hallways, etc., Should be considered as permanent private households.

Institutional settings - such as hospitals, asylums, monasteries, barracks, schools, prisons and related places - should be considered private permanent households, for those located in independent buildings and during the date of reference, were occupied by:

  • Families whose members, one or more, were employees or owners of the establishment;
  • Families whose members, one or more, were part of the institution or not, as in rehabilitation centers;
  • Families whose members, one or more, whether or not they were part of institutions or military zones.


[page 62]

For permanent private households, we have the following types:
  • Occupied;
  • Closed;
  • Occasional use;
  • Vacant.


See each type in detail and make sure you know the differences between them.

Permanent Occupied Private Household

It is the permanent household that, on the date of reference, was occupied by residents and where the interview was conducted. In a permanent occupied household, the relationship between the occupants is dictated by kinship, domestic dependence or rules of coexistence.

[page 63]

Learn about the different types of permanent occupied household :
House
It is a building with direct access to a street ( avenue, road, pathway, etc.), legalized or not, regardless of the material used in its construction. Consider the house as a building with one or more paved floors that is occupied entirely by a single household.

Town house or condominum
A Town house is the domicile located in the house that forms part of a group of houses with unique access to a public space. In a townhouse, the houses are grouped together, and sometimes detached from each other. Each has a door that identifies its unique designation. For example: Rua das Acacias, 34, House 2 - Villa Helena.

A Condo is the house that is part of a residential gouping consisting of common use spaces (such as recreation areas, playgrounds, courtyards, sports facilities, etc.). Condos are typically separated from each other, each having a door with a specific identification or number. For example: Avenida das Americas, 7000 - Condo 21.


[page 64]
Apartment
It is the private household located in a building with one or more floors, with more than one residence and public spaces (lobby, stairs, corridors, reception or other dependencies). Also apartments are considered households when they are located in buildings with two or more floors in which the other units are non-residential, and also those located in buildings of two or more floors with separate floor entrances.

Housing in rooming houses, tenements or "hallways"

It is a multi-family dwelling unit, i.e. where several different families reside with the following characteristics:
  • Common use of water and sanitary facilities (bathroom, kitchen, water tank, etc.).
  • Use of the same environment for various functions (sleeping, cooking, eating, working, etc.).
  • Several households (private households) built on urban lots or subdivisions of households in the same building, usually leased, or transferred without formal lease agreement.


[page 65]

Hut or Shack

Indigenous Brazilian dwellings with rustic characteristics, which can be simple and without walls; small, made from tree branches and covered with straw or leaves; or a large hut made of bamboo and tree trunks, covered with straw or dry palms, used as housing for various Indigenous Brazilian families.

Attention!
The terms, Hut or Shack, shall only be applied in indigenous lands and should be considered as permanent households. No indigenous housing (hut or shack) should be considered as an Improvised Household.


[page 66]

Closed Permanent Private Household
Is the permanent household which was occupied on the reference date, but it was not possible to conduct the interview at the time of the Census visit, since its residents were absent.

In such cases, you, the interviewer, should report to a neighbor to double check if the absence is only during the day because of work and/or study, or if residents are temporarily absent for reasons of vacation, business trip to relatives, admission to hospital, etc.

You should also try to find an hour or day to find a qualified resident to provide information on all residents. Make periodic visits to the household until the end of the collection time in order to check if someone already returned, and then conduct the interview.

When the tenant is found and it is possible to conduct the interview, delete the type Closed Permanent Private Household and include the type Occupied Permanent Private Household.

[page 67]

When you finish the census sector, the Permanent Private Households in which the residents could not be reached throughout the collection period should be classified as Closed Permanent Private Household.

Permanent Private Household for Occasional Use

This is the Permanent Private Household which served as casual housing on the reference date, i.e., the domicile was used for rest on weekends, holidays or otherwise, even if, on the reference date, its occasional occupants were present.

A Household should also be considered as of Occasional Use, if the household is not considered as primary, given that when the respondent declared that he/she lives in two households.

Vacant Permanent Private Household

This is a Permanent Private Household that had no resident on the reference date.
Examples: buildings that were on sale or for rent without residents on the reference date.

[page 68]

Attention!
Even if the household has been occupied during the data collection time, the prevailing condition of Vacant Permanent Private Household is defined with respect to the reference date.

We have learned all the types of Permanent Private Households, now you will learn about Occupied Private Improvised Households

Occupied Private Improvised Households
This type of household is located in a building that has no spaces intended solely for housing (i.e. inside a bar), as well as inappropriate locations for housing and that were occupied by residents on the date of reference.

[page 69]

Also in Improvised Occupied Private Households, the relationship between the occupants is dictated by kinship, domestic dependence or rules of coexistence.
The following are considered inappropriate locations for housing:

  • Rustic buildings in rural areas that are not intended to be used as housing, such as storerooms, stables, rain shelters, etc.;
  • Buildings attached to the principal residence for the storage of vehicles, animals and tools;
  • The buildings located on public streets or squares, such as newspaper stands and kiosks for the sale of food, cigarettes, drinks, etc.;
  • Tents, trailers, caves, etc.
  • Buildings under construction in ruins, demolition, etc.


Attention!

There are two types of Collective Households:
  • Collective Household with resident, and
  • Collective Household without resident.


Collective household types are:
  • Nursing homes, orphanages, convents and related facilities;

Household

27. A household is a group of persons who commonly live together and would take their meals from a common kitchen unless the exigencies of work prevented any of them from doing so. There may be a household of persons related by blood or a household of unrelated persons or having a mix of both. Examples of unrelated households are boarding houses, messes, hostels, residential hotels, rescue homes, jails, pagodas, etc. These are called "Institutional Households". There may be one- member households, two-member households or multi-member households. For census purposes each one of these types is regarded as a "Household".
28. If a group of persons who are unrelated to each other live in a building/structure, but do not have their meals from a common kitchen, then they would not constitute an Institutional household. Each such person should be treated as a separate household. The important link in finding out whether there is a household or not, is the existence of a common kitchen.

28.1 Each household in a building will be allotted numbers like 01, 02 etc., and will be listed according to the instructions that follow. As each household will be related to the physical structure of a building, the household number as such may not be painted (or marked on a sticker) on the door of each building. In case there are several households in a building (e.g. flats) household numbers may be painted on the door (or marked on a sticker) for easy identification.


Type of Household / Population

57. Give suitable code in the box provided for this purpose. For a normal household, give Code 1.


Homeless Household

129. This type of household includes households who do not live in a building or structure (e.g. those who live on the road side, pavements, park, in open space outside a pagoda or market etc.). Such population in your EA should be enumerated around midnight of March 3, 1998 i.e. on Census Night itself. In order to do this you will have to take note of the possible places where such population normally live in your EA. You can do this during House listing. Please, however, note that since such population live in the open, without a building or structure, they will not be listed in the House list (Form A). You will have to cover all such homeless households and enumerate them in Form B on the Census Night. If there is likely to be a large number of homeless persons in your EA., you may not be able to enumerate single-handed in one night. You should report this fact to your supervisor in advance so that one or more extra enumerators can be appointed to assist you in the one-night enumeration of such homeless persons. Beggars, vagrants and persons of unsound mind who live without a shelter have to be enumerated as homeless population and should not be missed.


Boat Population

131. Persons living in boats which are on the move are referred to as boat population. They will be enumerated on Census Night. Before enumeration, boats found in a EA will be given separate three digit numbers as follows:- B001, B002 etc. The letter B before the number indicates it is a Boat number. This number will be prominently written on the boat with chalk piece or on the sticker affixed. Please note that Form A House list will not be filled-in for boats. Separate Form B should be filled-in for people in boats treating each boat as a separate building or structure. In identification particulars in Part 1 of Form B boat number should be written under building number. Give Code 4 in the box under "Type of household/ Population". Instructions for enumerating the boat population will be the same as for normal households except that (1) Statements 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3 and Total Statements in Part 1 of Form B will not be filled in and (2) Part 4 of Form B will also not be filled in.

Transient Population

132. This category of population includes the following: (i) persons who stayed on Census Night in airports, railway stations, bus stands, harbours, ferries and in carts (as travellers) (ii) nomadic population who camped on Census Night in a village (iii) persons who on Census Night stayed in ships within the Cambodian territorial waters and (iv) persons who stayed on Census Night at international border posts.

Enumeration of transient population will be done in Form B following the same instructions as given for homeless households. However, please note that in the case of transient population, you have to give Code 5 in the box under "Type of Household/Population" in Part 1. You should also indicate on the dotted line above the box, the place where such population is found (e.g. Phnom Penh Railway Station, Ship Sorya in the harbour). Special arrangements will be made to enumerate transient population on Census Night.

Column 3: Number of households
This column will be completed after the interview in the structure. You will fill in the number of households living in the structure concerned. There are two types of households:
- Private households
- Collective households.

A private household comprises either one person who provides his own essential needs or a group of related or unrelated persons who join together to provide their essential needs. Such a group therefore recognizes the authority of one person: the head of the household.

A collective household is a group of persons who live in camps, institutions or boarding schools. They therefore fall under one of the following categories:
- Servicemen, policemen and gendarmes living in camps or barracks without their families
- Boarders in high schools, colleges and other institutions of learning
- Prisoners;
- Persons living in hotels, boarding houses or hostels ;
- Patients living in hospitals and other health establishments for more than 6 months
- Workers living in worksites without their families: members of religious communities living in convents or in boarding houses

1. Type of Dwelling

Under this heading information will be collected on premises and enclosures identified as dwellings from the point of view of the following general characteristics: (a) purpose (constructed as lodging or not) and actual use (used for habilitation [sic]); (b) relationship of those living together (private household or community); (c) similar structural elements (house, apartment, rustic hut, etc.)

Within this definition, under the heading premises meant as dwellings, information will be collected by marking an (x) in the appropriate square located under each of the following subgroups: (a) family dwellings, and (b) collective dwellings. And under the heading: other premises that function as dwellings on the date of the census, information will be recorded on the corresponding dotted line.

Premises meant as dwellings. The options indicated within the subgroup family dwellings include almost all of the distinct types of family dwellings that actually exist in the country. As can be observed, both types of dwelling predominant in urban areas (houses, apartments, etc.) and those predominant in rural areas (shacks, rustic huts, etc.) have been listed, including also types of clandestine dwellings such as squatter settlements, mobile dwellings (trailers, boats) and others. Within the subgroup Collective Dwellings, as in the previous case, premises corresponding to the various types of institutions are listed with sufficient completeness.

Finally, under the heading other premises that function as dwellings on the date of the census, no list has been included. This space is reserved for specific notations on those premises that were not meant, constructed, built, adapted, or transformed to be lived in, but which in fact are used as a place of lodging on the day of the census. In the case of, for example, stables, granaries, garages, etc.

The following definitions will help to record each case properly:

Family Dwellings:

a) Private House. Private house, or more commonly "house," refers to a building or construction that contains only one family dwelling. Chalets, bungalows, duplexes and, in general, all buildings, whatever their style, along a street that constitute the abode of a private domicile should be recorded, therefore, as "house" or "private house."

[p. 23]

b) An apartment in an apartment building is the room or group of rooms which, inside a building, constitute a family dwelling, but occupy only part of the building. The building is always made up of various living units.

c) A hut (casita de cite) is a building that is part of an enclosed area, within which small, independent houses meant for family dwellings are distributed.

d) An apartment or room in a house is a room or group of rooms that, in compliance with the requirements of the definition of "dwelling" (see definition), are located inside a "house" or "private house."

e) An apartment or room in a school, factory, workshop, collective dwelling, etc. is a room or group of rooms that, in compliance with the requirements of the definition of "dwelling" are located inside the building or premises of a school, industrial workshop, factory, collective dwelling, etc., such as apartments or rooms meant for the use of doormen, security guards, directors of the institution or business or community, or some of its employees.

f) A room in a tenement (high-density slum) is a room among other similar rooms, located within a building that has shared bathroom facilities. A room generally constitutes a family dwelling.

g) An improvised dwelling (squatter settlement) is an edification made of waste materials, on uncultivated land belonging to others, where there is no urban infrastructure nor hygienic conditions for habitability. They generally make up settlements.

h) A shack, rustic hut, or cabin is a typical rural edification made of lightweight material. In the city, isolated dwellings put up to supervise a construction site or project, in which the supervisor usually lives with his family, should be recorded in this category.

i) A trailer, boat, boxcar is a type of dwelling constructed on a mobile structure for the purpose of recreation or because of convenience for work.

j) Others (tents, parked vehicles, etc.) are types of unstable, more or less temporary dwellings, or dwellings that have been specially adapted. Parked vehicle means the upper part of streetcars, boxcars, buses, etc. that was initially meant for the use of passengers but that, whether removed or not from the wheels, has been immobilized in some place through being used as place to live.

Collective Dwellings.

Reading this definition and that of particular types of collective dwellings will help greatly in notating [this section].

a) A boarding house or guest house is a dwelling with six or more boarders, considering as such even those who only pay for a room [not meals]. If there are five or fewer boarders, the dwelling should be considered a private dwelling. This definition should not be confused with that of apartment or room in a house, previously explained [p. 24], and which is an independent dwelling within a private house, and therefore a family dwelling.

b) A hotel is a dwelling in which temporary or permanent lodging is provided with food or without it.

c) A lodge is a dwelling generally meant to provide nighttime lodging.

Note: The rest of the collective dwellings listed don't need any definition. Just remember that in any type of collective dwelling there can be one or more family dwellings.

Premises that function as dwellings on the date of the census. Record the appropriate information, specifying the name of the premises (garage, granary, etc.)

02) Apartment: Is located in a permanently constructed building; has a separate entrance from a hallway, stairway, or other common space in the building or direct access from the street. The occupants can come and go without passing through a premises occupied by others.

Apartments can also be found in commercial buildings and as separate and independent areas within institutions (apartment for the Director of a hospital or the caretaker of a commercial building).

03) Tenement (high-density slum) dwelling: Is a room or group of rooms that make up an independent dwelling. They are located along a common-use hallway and have shared facilities (generally in an old house).

05) Improved shack [Mejora]: Is a construction made of light material put up to take care of a construction site or construction materials, etc., and is generally occupied by the caretaker and family.

[p. 23]

06) Squatter Dwelling: Is a temporary building made from waste materials (cardboard, tin, waste construction materials). They make up groups of dwellings located in uncultivated areas belonging to others where there is neither urbanization nor hygienic conditions for living there. It is also possible to find squatter dwellings in isolated areas or constructed close to other dwelling groups.

07) Dwelling in a structure or other premises not meant for residential purposes: This group includes dwellings under construction, wineries, granaries, garages, warehouses, etc., in other words, buildings that were not originally meant for residential purposes.

Included in this group are caves, mine entrances, etc.

08) Boxcar, boat, tent, etc.: Are types of mobile lodging or lodging made to be transported.

If the dwelling has 5 or fewer boarders it should be recorded as a private dwelling.

Boardinghouses and guesthouses with a municipal license will always be considered collective dwellings, regardless of the number of boarders.

12) Lodge: Is a dwelling meant to provide nighttime lodging. It is characterized by the renting of beds by the night.

B. Collective Dwelling

Indicate, by filling in the corresponding circle, the type of collective dwelling in question (Boardinghouse, Hotel, Boarding School, etc.) and continue immediately to section III People in the Household.

Don't forget that a collective dwelling is any premises used as a place of lodging by a group of unrelated people who share the dwelling or part of it and live together for reasons of health, work, religion, study, discipline, etc.

Remember that, in a building where you find a collective dwelling, in addition to the collective household one or more private households may exist, and these households can correspond to private dwellings. If this should occur, use separate questionnaires for each dwelling, giving them different numbers.

Example: Hotel Administrator, School Headmaster, etc.

Question 1

"Collective Dwelling": Mark this alternative when, for example, you unexpectedly come across a boarding house (collective dwelling) that doesn't appear on the F1 [The F1 is a census form which indicates the geographic area to be enumerated by each enumerator.]. In this case, you mark it and continue to Sections D and E. [These instructions refer to a graphic of question 1b on the census form.]

Remember that collective dwellings that are recorded on the F1 you do not have to enumerate or record on the summary sheet, because they belong to another area of the census. [These instructions refer to a graphic of question 1b on the census form.]

[p. 28]

For any place that has served as lodging and does not correspond to any of the distinct types of dwelling, you should fill in the oval other type of private dwelling. [These instructions refer to a graphic of question 1a on the census form.]

Remember that dwellings are made of different materials, are of different sizes, and may be fixed or mobile.

(1) Type of household. Choose either domestic household or collective household accordingly. People living together in one family should be registered as one household and should not be looked upon as two, disregarding the fact that certain members might be working in a government [pg. 28] organization, an enterprise or an institution, or other members might be counted as rural population, or some members have commodity grain while other members have not. It is up to the public security organ to decide on the filling of the household registration booklet. For a collective household, a circle should be drawn on "2", the name of the collective household should also be written on the upper right-hand corner of the questionnaire following the "name of collective household".

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Population Census is enumerated at the household level. Households can be classified into two types: domestic and institutional. Individuals who live in the same place mostly due to family relationships are counted as a domestic household. Singles who live alone are counted as a domestic household. Individuals who live in the same domestic household should be registered as one household only, regardless of the type of working places and the type of household registrations (agricultural or non-agricultural), and whether they have the formal household registrations.

For individuals who do not have family relationships and who live in the collective dormitories of working places such as institutions, organizations, schools, factories, mines, construction sites, farms, companies, stores, hospitals, nurseries, nursing homes, temples, churches; and for those who are in prisons, jails, and labor camps, a whole working unit is counted as a institutional household. Individuals who have active jobs and live collectively are counted as one institutional household as well.


2. Household type: circle domestic or institutional. Refer to the second section of this instruction for the definitions of domestic household and institutional household.

Question 1: Type of Dwelling

This question is concerned with identifying if the dwelling is individual or collective. If it is individual, find out if it is the ordinary or common type, if it concerns a mobile dwelling, a hovel or a temporary dwelling. In this case what you the enumerator should do is mark with an X the circle that corresponds to the type of dwelling that is found.

(See the illustration on the next page)

For census purposes dwelling have been classified into two principal types, which we define below:

Private Dwelling

Separate and independent premises that are meant to lodge a single person (Private Dwelling) or a group of persons (one or many households) that can have family ties or not, but that are distinguished because they live together and because they prepare and consume their own food.

[p. 24]

A dwelling is not considered individual when the household established here has six or more persons considered as "Others non family" (Pensioned, etc.) agreeing with question 1 of the Population Census form. We can distinguish the following classes of private dwellings:

{Types of Private Dwelling}

  • Ordinary Dwelling

It is what we commonly perceive or consider as such because it has been built following a functional, structural or architectural design preconceived in terms of a habitual residence. It concerns a room or group of rooms and their dependents, located in a house, building or permanent place (permanent because it has a durability of 10 years or more) and that has been built with long lasting materials like cement, stone, concrete block, bricks, wood, etc., without its current state being important . This type of dwelling includes in addition to houses that we all know as such, apartments that are grouped in buildings or constructions named apartment buildings, apartment hotels or aparthotels. Also grouped here are shacks, which are ordinary in warm zones.

{An important observation with respect to apartments}

The reason for which we consider apartments within this classification, is because the occupants can develop the same style of life as occupants of a house, that is to say, residing for long periods of time, preparing food within the premises and living a common life independent of other premises (in this case apartments). Each apartment is a dwelling since it has direct access.

{Definition of a Shack}

With respect to shacks, it is advisable to remember that they are considered ordinary dwellings because their construction merits the use of materials of a certain durability and of a complete idea of the procedure adapting to the construction according to the usable material.

Shacks have walls and roof partially or totally built with materials like straw, palm, cane, etc. Although these materials can appear combined with wood and zinc sheets.

In this manner huts in which already many of our indigenous persons and some persons from costal regions principally live constitute as examples of shacks.

  • Mobile Dwelling

It is a premises that can be moved by its own design. Examples of mobile dwellings are the following: camping tents, trailers or a premises equipped as such in boats, ships, railroad cars, trucks, etc.

  • Hovel

A hovel is a premises built with discarded material. These dwellings are built, generally, with the purpose of responding to a need of immediate lodging. They are always found on banks of rivers, under bridges over rivers, in the outskirts cities, in overrun lands, of state or private property, etc.

  • Temporary

This other class or category of private dwelling includes that type of premises that has been available or meant for dwelling in:

a) Buildings or permanent places that normally fulfill other functions and that originally were not made to lodge persons. We refer here to a room or groups of rooms used for living like houses within mechanical workshops, wine cellars, granaries, factories, garages, stores, offices, guard houses, etc.

[p. 25]

b) Places that, by their configuration can be adapted as human dwellings and are bring used in this form on the day of enumeration. Here we can mention for example caves or any other natural refuge.

{Important Observation}

When we are found with a natural refuge (cave, hole in the trunk of a tree, etc.) that is possible to consider as a temporary dwelling, we only consider it as such if on the day of the visit there are clear indications that it is occupied as a residence.

Collective Dwelling

If the option of response to the question about the Type of Dwelling is Collective Dwelling you should take into account those places, buildings and houses in which the sick, police, prisoners for various crimes, young or children delinquents, workers, students, religious persons, the elderly or other groups that carry out or live together under the same roof. These places, buildings or houses in which groups of persons live without family ties between them, or that is, who being Non Family groups, have been designated by the government, by a private company or other institution, to resolve problems or social necessities like health, discipline, security, social adaptation, work in places far from the family dwelling, old age, being orphaned, poverty, study or religious life, etc.

We can cite the following as clear examples of this type of dwelling: hospitals, clinics and sanitariums in which exist the mentally sick or those who suffer diseases that have them weakened, barracks, jails, reformatories or centers of social adaptation, boarding houses, residence halls or students quarters, hospitals for orphans, asylums or retirement households for the elderly and convents.

{Something To Remember}

Caution: In a building or place meant to be a Collective Dwelling it is possible to find one or more private dwellings. You should be very careful about this. They are in hotels, jails, hospitals, convents, when any special group (owners, employees, managers, superintendents, etc.) has a dwelling with an entrance independent for them.

When in the dwelling form you should mark a Collective Dwelling (marking with an X the circle followed by the number 5) begin then to specify the name that the institution organization or place is known as in the line that follows the word "Name".

Immediately after beginning with the next thing, go to fill out the population forms for persons who correspond to it, as we will explain in the following unit.

Question 1: Dwelling type

This question will permit us to distinguish the number of individual and collective dwellings of the country and group them in different types, depending on their characteristics.

Observe and mark with an "X" the corresponding circle.

In individual dwelling the following categories are distinguished:

[To the right of the text is a form.]

[p. 36]

Independent house: is one that has a direct entrance to the street or land and constitutes a single dwelling. Here dwellings with a second story are included.

[Below the text is a picture of a house.]

Shack: Premises constructed with waste materials: cardboard, planks, old tin, cloth, etc. Generally it is built with the purpose of responding to an immediate need for lodging.
9
[Below the text is a picture of a hovel.]

In building: Dwellings (apartments or condominiums) that form part of a building of two or more floors, it can be a dwelling that has been converted to apartments.

It has an independent entrance through a hall, stairs or other common space.

[Below the text is a picture of an apartment building.]

Other: Any other type of individual building like mobile ones: ships, trucks, camping tents, etc., or temporary: premises designed for dwelling in buildings that originally were not made for lodging persons, such as houses within mechanics workshops, wine stores, stables, factories, garages, guard houses, etc.

[Below the text is a picture of a garage.]

The category homeless deals with those persons who do not have premises to be quartered in, such as those who sleep outside of churches, commercial establishments, abandoned buildings or under bridges but without having built a hovel. In these cases mark the corresponding circle with "X".

For the collective dwellings mark with "X" option number 6 and write down the name of the institution, organization or place. If in your segment you find a collective dwelling with many usual residents, like a jail, tell your supervisor so that there is another person who enumerates these persons.

Keep in mind that:

If you mark any of the categories without dwelling or collective dwelling, you should continue with the population characteristics, without filling out the rest of the dwelling questions.

Private
[] 1 Independent house
[] 2 Independent house in condominium
[] 3 Apartment building
[] 4 Apartment building in condominium
[] 5 Traditional indigenous dwelling (tipi or ranch)

[] 13 other (guesthouse, convent)
[] 14 Person without dwelling (go to Block IV)

The record of the Type of Dwelling is completed by direct observation and investigation with the informant.

The different types of dwellings are described below:

Independent house

An independent house is a structure that contains a single dwelling that has a direct exit to the street, public walkway, plot, or highway. It can be a structure that has a multi-level dwelling provided that the structure is composed of a single dwelling

Independent house in condominium

An independent house in condominium possesses the same characteristics of the previous category (independent house), except that, differently than the independent house, these are part of a condominium, that's to say, the owner of the dwelling is part of an assembly of condominiums and is co-owner of the common areas of the site, such as the gardens, recreation spaces, pools, and others.

You should investigate whether or not it is part of a condominium, as there are closed neighborhoods that could be confused with this category.

Apartment building

Dwellings in apartment buildings are dwellings that form part of a building of two or more floors that have access to a public space through a hallway, corridor, stairs, or elevator. The dwellings from the first floor that have direct access to the street are also considered within this category.

By extension, dwellings that have been transformed or converted, that means that above the dwelling of the first floor a second floor has been constructed with an independent entrance are also considered dwellings in an apartment building.

Apartment building in condominium

Dwellings in apartment buildings in condominiums are dwellings that form part of a building of two or more floors. In contrast to the previous category (apartment building) these are part of a condominium, such that the owner of the dwelling is part of an assembly of condominiums and is co-owner of the common areas of the site, such as the gardens, recreation spaces, pools, and others.

Because of this you should investigate if it is found within the presence of a condominium. These dwellings have access to a public space through a hallway, corridor, stairs, or elevator.

The dwellings of the first floor of the building that have direct access to the street are also considered within this category.

Traditional indigenous dwelling (tipi or ranch)

Non-traditional dwelling that houses one or more indigenous households, which was constructed with natural materials of local origin, or extracted from nature according to the traditions of each village.

On occasion, this type of dwellings tends to combine natural materials with artificial materials, like for example, a zinc roof with

[p. 103]

walls of chonta or wood with a woody grass roof. In this case it will also be considered a traditional indigenous dwelling.

In this way, you could also consider the case of the indigenous households of indigenous that were offered a dwelling of prefabricated materials and in addition use a dwelling made with natural materials. In these cases, both dwellings will be considered one single dwelling, in the category "traditional indigenous dwelling."

Room in bunkhouse

Rooms or small spaces within a single building that are used as a dwelling to house one or various people. Within this construction the rooms are used like individual dwellings to house one or various people. These have a single direct access to the street and each room has its own single exit to a common hallway.

In general the shower and sanitary service is of collective use; they do not have individual basic services (electricity and water) but rather are shared (by a same meter/gauge).

The bunkhouses lodge individual households and each one makes the rules for their room. Each room in a bunkhouse constitutes an individual dwelling.

If it is not possible to obtain interviews in this type of dwellings immediately communicate with the supervisor in order to take the measures necessary to collect the information.

Shanty

A shanty is an enclosure constructed provisionally with waste materials (generally in poor condition) like cardboard, boards, old cans, among others. It is constructed with the objective of responding to an immediate housing need and is generally an improvised enclosure.

Other

Any other type of dwelling like a mobile home, boat, truck, camp tent or housing enclosures designed originally with purposes other than those of housing people, such as dwellings in premises, within mechanic workshops, warehouses, stables, factories, garages, guard stations, or caves and natural refuges amongst others.

Collective

If in your registered area there is a collective dwelling in which there are more than 15 habitual residents, communicate the situation with your supervisor in order to determine the process to follow.

If, on the contrary, you find a collective dwelling with fewer than 15 habitual residents proceed in the following way:

Completely fill in Block 1: Location

Respond to question 1 of Block II: Characteristics of the dwelling, indicating the type of collective dwelling

Then continue on to Block III, question 3, and list all the habitual residents

Complete question 6 and continue according to the sequence of the questionnaire

The collective dwellings are classified as:

Barracks for workers: site dedicated to temporarily housing people that carry out work in a determined place, these tending to be structures adapted as dwellings. These are generally found within a site where labor is carried out for example, large constructions, coffee farms, or another type of plantation, amongst others.

Children's shelter: dwelling or building designed to house children and adolescents that for diverse reasons cannot live with their family members. They can belong to the National Board of Youth (PANI) or they can be private institutions.

Home for the elderly: dwelling or building designed to house the elderly that for diverse reasons cannot live with their family members. They can be public or private.

[p. 106]

Prison: institution designed for the reclusion of people deprived of liberty, like reformatories for youth or jails for adults.

Other (guesthouse, convent): these can be hotels, pensions, rehabilitation centers, guesthouses, boarding houses, student residencies, sanatoriums, convents, monasteries or seminaries, amongst others.

Person without a dwelling

This is the person that does not have an enclosure nor habitual residency in which to lodge, like those that sleep in the streets, parks, vacant lots, abandoned buildings, or under bridges but without having constructed a structure that protects them from inclement weather.

In this case proceed in the following way:

You must complete an individual questionnaire for each person without a dwelling

Completely fill out Block 1: Location

Answer Question 1 from Block II: Characteristics of the Dwelling with the code 14 "person without a dwelling." Go to Block IV and continue the interview respecting the steps of the questionnaire.

Section II Housing Characteristics

A dwelling is any space or locale that is inhabited or constructed for residence, separated or independent, for permanent or temporary housing for people related or not.

Also, a dwelling is any type of shelter, fixed or mobile, occupied for housing. For example: a van, a wagon, a cave, an abandoned bus, etc.

The dwellings should have an independent entrance, meaning, you should not go or leave the dwelling through another one. Dwellings should have walls, barriers or fences and a ceiling.

[PAGE 14]

Often times a dwelling can be a business, store or shop, which contains a space where people reside or sleep.

It should be consider built-in parts of the dwelling: rooms with an entrance or structures annexed to the principal dwelling, used by household members, including maids or home assistance workers.

In case that the dwelling is occupied or not, but with no one there, record per observation questions 1,2 and 3, and then go to the following household.

In case that the dwelling is occupied with residents there, fill in by observation questions 1-6 and continue with the questionnaire.

Questions 1: Household type

a) Household:
Is that one which is inhabited by a person or group of people. It could be an independent house, an apartment, a room in a bunkhouse, a barrack, etc. A household can contain more than one home. [Three images of different household types]

1. Independent House: place where people to enter and exit their house do not have to go through another one. An independent house can have direct access from the street or from the backyard, corridor or communal stairs.
2. Apartment: part of a building that has an independent entrance from a corridor or stairs and has access to a street.
3. Room in a bunkhouse or in the back of premises: unit of rooms generally in backyards or alleys.
4. Room in barracón: unit of rooms with a common roof that are found in bateyes, settlements or communities that developed around the sugar industry, or in temporary housing sites established to house victims of natural disasters.
5. Premises not intended for housing: space that was not originally designated as a place to live, however is being used as such during the census; for example, a garage, a barn, etc.

[PAGE 15]

6. House in construction: house or dwelling that is partially constructed or in construction and can house people permanently or provisionally.

7. Housing shared with business: house that is used as a business.

8. Other: house built with recycled materials or improvised housing.

[Box: A Collective Household does not have a household head]

b) Collective Household

A house that is a collective household, means a group of people with no family ties that for reasons such as health, work, religion, studies, discipline, accommodation, etc. live together.

A collective household could be: a hotel, a boarding house, a military or police barracks, a prison, a hospital or health center, a religious institutions or boarding schools or any other type such as nursing home, or a shelter.

Question 1. Dwelling Type: observe and record

Mark the type of dwelling that you observe, fill out the oval that represents the code for the corresponding household type.

If the housing type corresponds to one of the categories under collective dwellings, fill out the appropriate oval and skip directly to Section V: List of Household Members. In case that the interviewee is a person without housing, proceed in the same way, in other words, fill out the oval that corresponds to option 14, and then move on to Section V.

In this section there are two concepts that are important to understand before learning more about how to fill out the census survey. These two concepts are the meaning of dwelling and collective dwelling.

1. A dwelling is that which is inhabited by one or more people; In a given dwelling, there can be one or more household.

Dwellings are classified as:

1. Independent house
2. Apartment
3. A room in a bunkhouse or in the back of household
4. A barrack
5. House shared as a business
6. A place not designated for housing
7. Other type of household

2. A collective dwelling is designed to be inhabited by a group of people without family ties, who live together due to health, work, religion, study, specific discipline, as guests, etc. In this respect, a collective dwelling does not have a head of household.

Collective dwellings typically consist of the following types:

1. Hotel, hostel or guest house
2. Military quarters
3. Prison
4. Hospital or health center
5. Religious institutions, boarding schools, or retirement homes.
6. Other type of collective dwelling

For collective dwellings, you do not need to fill out Section III: Dwelling Identification or Section IV: Dwelling Characteristics.

People without housing are those who occupy spaces without walls, with ceilings made from random materials and have an independent entrance. These are people who sleep "wherever the night falls", under a bridge, on the porch or hallway of a building, in the open air, under a tree, in a cave or other type of place that is not a designated household.

In the case of people without housing, you should not fill out Section III: Household Identification or Section IV: Household Characteristics.

[Question No. 1]

[The following directions refer to a graphic representing question 1, "type of dwelling", in this section of the enumeration form.]

For this question you should signal with an x the box that corresponds to the type of dwelling, whether it be a family or a non-family dwelling, and within these groups [you should signal] the corresponding category, taking into account the following basic conditions in order to place them into each category:

Single family home: Any permanent building made with resistant materials such as [p. 9] concrete, rock, brick, adobe or wood and which has floors made of wood, tile or brick and which has a ceiling.

Apartment: Is a group of rooms, constructed, reconstructed, or adapted for housing people and is characterized by forming part of a building of one or more floors, having a separate entrance, and an exclusive-use water supply and toilet facilities.

Room in a rooming house: Is a room or group of rooms in a building, constructed, adapted, or prepared generally for housing as many households as it has rooms. It can happen that one household occupies more than one room or that a single room is occupied by more than one household. Generally, a room in a rooming house doesn't have exclusive use of the water supply, toilet or bathing facilities, even though [p. 10] it can have a kitchen or cooking facilities as part of the unit. They are further characterized by a common entrance, directly from a hallway, patio, or corridor.

Mediagua (small construction with sloped roof): Is a building of only one floor, with walls made of adobe, without a ceiling (tumbado) and with earth floors.

Straw house: Is a building with a covering of palm branches, straw, or any other plant and with walls made of cane or a mixture of sticks, cane, and mud, without a ceiling and with a floor made of cane or earth.

Rustic cabin (choza): Is any building that has adobe or straw walls, an earth floor, and a straw roof.

Watchman's residence (guachimanía): Is a provisional building where a person who takes care of a building under construction lives. This person can live alone or with their family.

Places not intended for use as a dwelling: These are spaces not [p. 11] meant to serve as a dwelling for people, as for example: granaries, garages, booths (casetas), warehouses, factories, hospitals, etc.

[Note that for question 1, there are various discrepancies between the enumerator's manual and the enumeration form. Items that appear on the enumeration form but not in the enumerator's manual include "rancho or covacha" (poor construction possibly with cane or straw roof) and all items under the collective dwelling heading. Items appearing in the enumerator's manual but not on the enumeration form are "straw house" and "watchman's residence."]

Chapter II. Dwelling

In this chapter, you collect the information that refers to the characteristics of the dwellings in the country.

For the purposes of the census, we establish two types of dwelling: individual and collective.

Individual dwelling: A separate and independent housing unit which houses one or various households (the households are formed by one or more persons, related or not, who eat out of the same pot and sleep in the same dwelling). An individual dwelling is also a dwelling that is not designated for housing persons, but is occupied as a dwelling at the time of the census.

In this sense, an individual dwelling can be: a room, an apartment, a house, a raft, a boat, etc. Take into account that various dwellings can exist in one building.

A building or any other place used for commercial, industrial, or services is not a dwelling unless there is a part of it being used to house one or more persons. In this case, the part of the building being occupied is considered an individual dwelling.

Collective dwelling: This is a dwelling that is inhabited by a group of persons who share the dwelling for reasons of health, discipline, religion, etc, such as hotel, residences, barracks, hospitals, convents, homes for the elderly, etc.

Question 1: Type of dwelling:

In the individual dwellings, there are 8 types; identify the type and mark the corresponding box.

1. House or villa -- This is all permanent construction made of resistant materials such as: reinforced concrete, stone, brick, adobe, cane or wood. Generally the dwelling has water service and sanitary services for the exclusive use of the dwelling.

2. Apartment -- A set of rooms that are part of a building with one or more floors. It is characterized as independent; it has water service and exclusive sanitary service.

3. Room in a boarding house -- This is comprised of one or various rooms that are part of a house, with a shared entry and a direct entry from a hallway, patio, corridor, or street, and that generally does not have exclusive water or sanitary service, these services being shared by all of the households.

4. Single-roof dwelling (mediagua) -- This is a construction with only of floor, walls made of brick, adobe, cinder block or wood, with a roof made of tile, asbestos sheeting, or zinc. It has only one flat roof surface set at an angle and no more than two rooms. If it has more than two rooms, it should be registered as a house of villa.

5. Ranch house -- This is rustic construction covered with palm, straw, or another similar material, with cane walls and wood, cane or dirt floor.

6. Shack -- This is a construction that uses waste materials such as: branches, cardboard boxes, asbestos sheeting scraps, cans, plastics, etc. with wood or dirt floor.

7. Hut -- This is a construction with adobe or straw walls, dirt floors, and straw roof.

8. Other -- These are improvised dwelling that were not built for dwellings such as: boats, rafts, wagons, tents, dressing rooms, etc. that are inhabited at the time of the census.

If the dwelling is collective, continue with chapter V population.

In the category collective dwelling, there are six types, mark the corresponding box with an X. Because of their size, some collective dwellings are enumerated by special enumerators. But if you have to enumerate a dwelling of this type, only mark type of dwelling, and do not ask the rest of the questions that refer to the dwelling or household, continue with the population questions. Do not enumerate the collective dwellings if they are unoccupied.

Given that it is common to find individual dwellings inside a collective dwelling, it is your obligation to visit these places and make sure that you have not omitted any dwellings. For example, if a residence has four floors, and one of them is occupied by the owner of the residence and his/her family, in this case, you should enumerate this individual dwelling separate from the collective dwelling.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

In this chapter information relating to the characteristics of the dwellings existing in the country is compiled.

For purposes of the census, two types of dwellings are established: private and collective.

Private dwelling.- Is a separate premises or place of lodging with independent access intended for accommodating one or more households (a household is considered a person or group of people, related or not by kinship bonds, that cooks their food separately and sleeps in the same dwelling). Also considered a private dwelling is one which, though not meant for human lodging, is occupied as such at the time the census is taken.

In this sense, a private dwelling can be: a room or bedroom, an apartment, a house or villa, a raft, a boat, a cave, etc. Take into account that in a given house or edification there can be various dwellings, and in a dwelling one or more households.

A building or any other place used for commercial, industrial, or service purposes is not a dwelling, unless in it there is some premises occupied as a place of lodging by one or more persons. In this case, the part of the building occupied by these people is a private dwelling.

Houses, "ranchos," "mediaguas," and other places used as factories, warehouses, corrals, stables, etc. for agricultural, commercial, industrial or service purposes are not private dwellings, unless there is a room, bedroom, or area in them that is used as a place of lodging by one or more people. In these cases, the part occupied as lodging by one or more people is a private dwelling.

[p. 17]

Collective dwelling.- Is a dwelling inhabited by a group of people who share it due to reasons of health, discipline, religion, etc., such as: hotels, boarding houses, barracks, hospitals, convents, retirement homes, military camps, jails, etc.

Mr. Enumerator, remember that buildings known as multi-family or condominiums are not collective dwellings. Keep in mind that these buildings are a group of private dwellings intended for housing one or various households.

[The following appear on the enumeration form for dispersed areas.]

Also considered collective dwellings are workers' shelters which, at harvest and planting time become seasonal dwellings.

In the census, all private dwellings in existence in the country --occupied with people present, occupied with people absent, unoccupied, and under construction-- will be enumerated, along with occupied collective dwellings.


Question 1.- Type of dwelling

[There is a picture of question 1 from this section of the enumeration form.]

Within private dwellings 8 types are distinguished. Identify its type and mark the corresponding box.

House or villa.- Is any permanent building made with resistant materials such as: concrete, stone, brick, adobe, cane or wood. They generally have an exclusive-use water supply and toilet facilities.

Apartment.- Group of rooms that forms part of a building of one or more floors. They are characterized by being independent and having an exclusive-use water supply and toilet facilities.

Room(s) in a boarding house.- Includes one or various rooms or bedrooms belonging to a house with a common and direct entrance from a hallway, patio, corridor or street and which, generally, doesn't have exclusive-use water or toilet facilities, these being common-use services for all of the households or dwellings.

Mediagua.- Is a building of one floor with brick, adobe, concrete block, or wood walls, and a roof made of straw, asbestos (eternit), or zinc. They have a roof sloping in only one direction and no more than two rooms or bedrooms. If there are more than two rooms or bedrooms, record it as a house or villa.

Rancho.- Are rustic buildings covered with palms, straw, or any other similar material, with walls made of cane and with a floor made of wood, cane, or dirt.

Covacha.- Is a building that uses rustic materials such as: branches, cardboard, asbestos remnants, tin, plastic, etc. with a floor of wood or dirt.

[p. 18]

Choza.- Is a building that has walls made of adobe or straw, a dirt floor and a straw roof.

Other.- Spaces adapted as a dwelling, which generally lack toilet facilities, where people live at the time of the census. These include: train cars, cargo containers, watercraft, boats, tents, caves, pavilions, barns, etc.

[There are drawings representing the last six types of private dwellings.]

In the collective dwellings 6 types are distinguished. Mark with an "x" the appropriate box. If you should have to enumerate a dwelling of this type, mark only the type of dwelling and don't ask the questions related to dwelling data, household data and data from emigrants to foreign countries. Continue with question 1 of chapter V. Identification of the people in the household: What are the first and last names of each one of the people that spent the night of November 24th to the 25th in this household?, and Chapter VI. Population data. In these cases the characteristics of the building are not of interest, but rather just those of the people that occupy these dwellings. You should not enumerate unoccupied collective dwellings.

Given that private dwellings are frequently found within collective dwellings, it is your obligation to visit these places and ensure that you are not omitting any dwelling. For example: if a boarding house has four floors, of which one floor is occupied by the owner of the residence and their family, in this case you should enumerate this dwelling separately from the collective dwelling.

Important: The enumerator will investigate whether there is a private dwelling within the collective dwelling; which means that he/she should find out if within the collective dwelling there is a person or group of persons who live in the collective dwelling permanently; if this is the case, the interview should be done. For example: hotel owners, clinic caretakers, etc.

[Page 16]

Remember that for the dwellings that are occupied with persons absent (2), unoccupied (3), and under construction (4), you should open a census questionnaire and register it according to the following instructions:

[Copies of sections I-V of the census questionnaire are omitted here.]

Column 11: Purpose of the housing unit
During listing, each and every housing unit is coded according to its purpose. The following codes are used to distinguish housing units by their purpose:

1 = only for residential purposes
2 = for residential and enterprise purposes
3 = hotel/hostel
4 = other collective quarters
5 = other enterprise
6 = unoccupied
7 = under construction

Description for codes 1 through 7 is given below:

1. Only for residential purposes
A housing unit is said to be used for residential purposes if and only if it is separate and independent and no other activities such as commercial, manufacturing, business, etc. are done in it. On this basis, during listing if a housing unit is used for only residence of conventional household members, then write the purpose and enter code 1 in the given card column.

2. For residential and enterprise purposes
During listing if the housing unit serves partially a residential purpose and partially an enterprise purpose, then describe the purpose and enter code 2 in the card column. For instance, in a residential housing unit, if there is additional activity such as selling of local drinks like Tella, Teji, or Katikala, code 2 is entered in the card column. However, if these two activities are done in two separate and independent housing units each of the housing unit could be listed in a separate row and given different housing unit serial number in column 9.

A description of an enterprise is given below. The code for partial residential and partial enterprise does not include hotel/hostel and other collective quarters.

Enterprise: an establishment which has its own fixed place and address, mostly managed by one or more private owners, that is in engaged in service-rendering, business or manufacturing activities. For example, establishments engaged in manufacturing of shoes, bread, textiles, etc. The repair of shoes, transport, health, education, restaurant, bars, supermarkets, etc. are service-rendering enterprises.

According to the above definition given for enterprise the purpose of a housing unit could be classified as partial residential and enterprise, if and only if, at least one member of the household resides in it and runs one or more formal or informal business activities in the same housing unit. For example a housing unit could be used as:

Residence and selling of local drinks like tella, teji, etc.
Residence and selling of food
Residence and weaving
Residence and kiosks
Residence and pottery
Residence and metal work
Residence and manufacturing and repair of shoes
Residence and office works, etc.

Even if the owner of the enterprise/establishment does not live in the housing unit, as long as employees or other individuals live in the housing unit, the purpose of the housing unit could be classified as partial residential and enterprise.

Collective quarter
A collective quarter is a premise (a housing unit, a building or a compound) in which a number of unrelated or related persons reside together, and share common facilities. It includes hotels, hostels, boarding schools, orphanages, homes for the elderly, children's homes, prisons, military barracks, monasteries, work camps, rehabilitation centers, etc. It is important to note that in the premises of some collective quarters there may be private households.

3. Hotel/hostel
A hotel is an enterprise which provides:

a. Food and drinks service or
b. Drinks and bed room service or
c. Food, drinks and bed room services or
d. Only bed room services

Even if it doesn't fulfill the criteria listed from above, as long as there are people who live in it and share common facilities we can classify it as hotel/hostel.

If it doesn't fulfill at least one of the criteria listed above and if it is not a collective quarter enter code 5.

A hostel is a structure in which many people live differently from regular households in one or more housing units and share common facilities like water, electricity, etc. together and could be administered by one manager.

Hotel/hostel residents are those people who do not have another place to live and do not cook their food in the room where they are living in. On the contrary, if they cook their food in their room, they should be classified as regular households.

In a hotel/hostel, if there are residents who live independently and cook their own food in the housing unit and live as regular households they should be listed separately from the hotel/hostel residents.

For example, if the owner of the hotel lives separately from the hotel residents with his/her family in the hotel by cooking his/her own food, then the owner with his/her family will be listed in a column 9 of the listing form and the hotel residents are listed separately. The private households who live in the hostel will have separate housing unit serial numbers.

4. Other collective quarters
Other collective quarters are, excluding hotels/hostels, premises where a number of unrelated or related persons reside together, and share common facilities. These include prisons, boarding schools, hospitals, military barracks, orphanages, homes for elderly, children's home, monasteries, etc.

Remember there could be regular households in a compound of other collective quarters.

Sometimes in big enterprises there might be collective quarters. In this case, the enterprise and the collective quarter are assigned different housing unit serial numbers in column 9 of the listing form. For other collective quarters code 4 should be entered in the corresponding card column.

5. Other enterprise
Other enterprise includes manufacturing industries, business centers, government offices, churches and mosques (excluding individual praying rooms), bars which do not have bedrooms, supermarkets, garages, stores, schools, etc. (excluding hotels/hostels and other collective quarters).

During listing, if the housing unit serves as the one of the enterprises mentioned above, code 5 should be entered in the card column.

Section 2:- Type of Residence and Housing Identification

In this section the type of residence, housing unit serial number and serial number of the household should be filled in and appropriately shaded.

Question 1:- Type of residence

Data in this question will be collected to identify type of residence i.e. whether they are conventional household members, inmates of hotels/hostels, Orphanages, inmates of boarding school (including universities and colleges which have lodging services) inmates of correctional facilities, inmates of other collective quarters, pastoralists who are wandering from place to place in search of water and grass, and homeless persons who live at verandas, streets, ... etc.

In addition, conventional households who reside in collective quarters (those who are given separated household serial number and housing unit number in the listing form) should be shaded code 1 in this question. By identifying types of residence of the household or individuals to be interviewed, it is necessary to shade the appropriate code from the codes given below

-Conventional household
-Hotels/hostels
-Orphanages
-Boarding schools (including universities and colleges which have lodging facilities)
-Correctional facilities
-Other collective quarters
-Pastoralists who move from place to place in search of grass and water
-Homeless persons

16. Meaning of household A household will usually consist of a group of persons all of the same family and living in a single dwelling house. In general, the key to the definition of a household for the Census is that its members should normally eat together food prepared for them in the same kitchen and that they should share in the cost, collection and preparation of this food. However, in determining what a household is, you will encounter situations where it will be necessary to extend this definition and to take into account not only the eating and house-keeping arrangements, but also the sleeping arrangements. This will particularly apply to related family groups such as those where a married son sleeps with his wife (or a married daughter sleeps with her husband), and any children they may have, in a house apart from the remainder of the family, yet all share in the eating and house-keeping arrangements. In a case such as this, it is better to treat this as two separate households, with a separate Household Schedule, for each. Similarly, if there are two children married, and each couple, either with or without children, sleeps in a separate house while sharing in the eating arrangements, there should be three separate Household Schedules for this particular group of people -- each schedule with its own number (See paragraphs 19, 20 and 22).

17. The extended definition of a household should apply only in instances such as these where the people sleeping apart form a separate biological family unit. In all other cases, even though the various members of a household may be distributed throughout two or more houses for sleeping, they should not be recorded as separate households. Hence, if the head of a household sleeps with his sons in one house, and his wife sleeps with the daughters in another, all of these should be regarded as forming just one household.

18. There will be cases when the rules, given in paragraphs 16 and 17 to use in deciding what is a household, will not apply and some further guides which will help you are:
(a) A servant who sleeps in the house or in an out-building on the premises belongs to the household.
(b) Servants who sleep away from the household in which they work should be included in the household in which they sleep.
(c) A visitor and any of his children, who are fed from the family kitchen, also count as members of the household.
(d) A boarding school, or hotel, supplying meals forms a single household.
(e) If there is more than one household living in a single house and if each of these households makes its own separate arrangements for eating, these should be regarded as separate households (and be entered on different schedules).
(f) An institution such as a hospital, a boarding school or a gaol, may be a single household, but if within it there are separate quarters for all or any of the staff, such quarters are separate households.
(g) Any vessel, which is in port in your Area at midnight on the night of 12th September, or arrives in port the following morning without having been enumerated elsewhere, should be regarded as a household in your Area.


19. How to record a household: Each household which you will visit should be recorded by writing the name of its head on a separate line in your Record/Compilation Book. Each of these lines is numbered, and a household will automatically take the number of the line on which the name of its head is written. If you make a mistake, or if for any other reason you have to cancel an entry on any line, write "Cancelled" on that line and do not attempt to use the number for another household.

20. After you have written the name of the head of the household and the date of your visit in your Record/Compilation Book, write the number which then belongs to that household on the line "Schedule Number" in the top left-hand corner of the Household Schedule. This helps you to identify both the household and the schedule for that household on your second visit. In the space provided on the top right-hand corner of the schedule you should a1so write the name of the Island (not the Island Group); the number which has been given to your Area; and the name of the town, village, settlement, locality or estate, crossing out whichever of these terms does not apply. Any additional details, such as street names and house numbers in towns which you may need to identify the household on your second visit should also be written in this space. If the household to be recorded is a hotel or an institution such as a hospital or school or prison, this should be clearly stated here.

4.2 You should classify each dwelling in one of the categories 1 through 7 (first page of form number 1). The following explanations about each category clarify for you the idea of dwelling in certain special cases.
4.2.1 Category 2. Independent Room(s) rented or sublet or lent to individuals. Certain dwellings have an independent annex (i.e., with direct access to the outside or common areas of the building, without having to cross premises occupied by other persons). This is the case, for example, of dwellings which have a maid's room located on a different floor (which is common in the Paris metropolitan area). If the owner of the principal dwelling has such an annex for himself (to house a member of the family, a servant, etc.), a separate housing form should not be filled out for the annex. If, however, the annex is rented, sublet or lent to individuals, you must fill out a separate form by checking off box 2 in the lodging category and adding the name of the owner of the principal dwelling (this information may allow the main dwelling and its annex to be considered as a separate dwelling for certain uses of the census).
The rooms classified in category 2 must always be attached to a main dwelling, with which they normally make a single grouping.
4.2.2 Category 3. Furnished room in a hotel or furnished house [garni]. Some clients of these establishments reside there most of the year (for example, students who live most of the school year in a hotel room); others don't have another residence (example: single people who live permanently in a hotel, young married couples who have not yet found other lodging).
In such cases, begin a housing form number 1 for each room (or possibly apartment) occupied by one household, or one person living alone. Check off box number 3 of the dwelling category, and box number 6 for question 4 (page 4).
Category 3 of dwelling should be used only for furnished rooms or apartments in hotels, inns, family- run boarding houses, (building type 4, question number 1 on the building form). In particular, it should not be used for students living in university housing or student hostels, nor should it be used for young workers living in residence hostels [foyers] (see the bottom of the first page of form number 3, and § 6.2, below.)
4.2.3 Category 4. Temporary Construction Used for Habitation. This category will of course be used for all lodging in a type 3 building (question number 1 of the housing form). Additionally, you can use it in the exceptional case where only part of a building (type 1, 5 or 6) is of a temporary nature (if you come across such a case, describe it completely).
4.2.4 Category 5. Make- shift housing. This category will of course be used for all type of lodging of a type 3 building (question 1 of the building form). Also classify in this category an improvised shelter in premises unfit for human habitation (cellar, attic, barn, shop, workshop, etc.) located inside of an ordinary building; indicate fully the nature of the premises.
4.2.5 Category 1. Ordinary dwelling. This category includes all ordinary dwellings (with the exception of those special cases enumerated in categories 2 through 5) provided that they are occupied as the "principal residence."
If someone has several residences, the principal residence is the one where he/she spends most of the year.
[p.20]
4.2.6. Category 7. Secondary residence. This category includes all ordinary dwellings used as secondary residences. Typical examples include: country homes, villas, vacation housing, etc. Furnished apartments or lodgings, rented or for rent during the tourist season in resort areas, will also be included in this category.
4.2.7 Category 6. Vacant dwelling. This category includes ordinary vacant dwellings, i.e., they are unoccupied as either a principal or secondary residence. Normally such lodging is available for sale or rent, but not necessarily. For example, box number 6 is checked off for recently- completed new housing which is already allotted [attribué], but not yet occupied by the renter or owner.

4.1. General definition of dwellings
As a general rule, by dwelling you will consider any separated and independent place used as a dwelling.
The local (a single room or a group of rooms) should be separate, that means that it must be completely closed off by walls and partitions. It should not be in contact with another place if it is not by shared parts of the building (stairs, entryways, etc.)
The local should be independent, that is to say that it should possess its own independent entrance looking out on the outside, whether directly or by the intermediary of the shared parts of the building, without it being necessary to cross through another place occupied by other people.
The local should be used as an abode. You will keep track of the current purpose of the places and not the original purpose of the structure. Thus, you will not establish any housing form for former dwellings integrally transformed into (or used as) offices, stores, workshops, etc. On the other hand, you will establish a housing form for a make- shift dwelling (type 2 building in question 1 of the house form - See 3.3.1) serving as a shelter for a person, a household or a family, in the absence of another residence.
Furthermore, you should keep track of the current arrangement of the places and not their original arrangement (at the time of their construction). For example, if two dwellings have been put together by opening a connection between them in order to make one larger apartment occupied by a single household, you will only establish one single housing form. On the other hand, you will establish two housing forms when a dwelling is divided into two independent parts (each part having its own special access, all connection between them having been cut off and each is occupied by a distinct group of people).
[p.24]
4.1.1. Important Note
It happens that two households, in the meaning that one usually gives for this term (1), live together in the same dwelling while using some shared facilities (kitchen, bathroom, etc.). In such a case, you should fill out one single form number 1 and not 2: remember that the form number one is a housing form. This rule should be observed especially in the two following cases, which are frequent:
a. When newlyweds live at their parents' home while waiting to have a personal dwelling of their own, you should fill out only one form 1 for the dwelling used by both the young couple and the parents (in order for it to be conducive to establish two forms number 1, it would be necessary that the dwelling be renovated into two parts completely separated: see above).
b. When one non- independent part of a dwelling is rented out, sublet or lent to renters, people who sublet, boarders or to other sheltered people, this part should not become the subject of a distinct housing form (the renters, people subletting, boarders, or people living there occupying rooms that are not independent, will be recorded on list A after their landlord and the people of his household).
4.1.2. Situation of the bungalow or the two- story villa (ground floor and first floor).
You will establish two dwelling forms only if the bungalow is occupied by two households living independently from each other (this is not the case, especially when the meals are eaten together).
4.2. Explanations related to the box to be filled out by the census agent, on the first page of the housing form.
You should classify each dwelling in one of the seven categories (1 to 7) appearing on the bottom of the first page of the housing form. Attentively read the explanations below which will specify the definition of a dwelling in some special cases. You will find in paragraphs 6.1 and 6.2 some explanations concerning the population counted separately and the population living in shared households.
4.2.1. Category 2: Independent rooms rented out, sublet, or leased to certain individuals.
Some dwelling sometimes have an independent annex, that is to say which has access to the outside, either directly, or by the intermediary of shared parts of the building, without it being necessary to go through places occupied by other people. This is the case, for example, for dwellings having a maid's room situated on another floor (frequently the case in the Parisian neighborhoods). If the owner of the main dwelling has such an annex for himself (in order to shelter a member of his family, a maid, etc) or if the independent room is unoccupied at the time of the census, it is not necessary to establish a distinct form number 1 for the room. If, on the other hand, the annex is rented, sublet or leased to particular people, you should establish a distinct number one form for it by checking box 2 of the category of dwelling and by adding the name of the owner of the main dwelling . (This information will possibly permit considering the main dwelling and its annex as a single unit, in some uses of the census.)
The rooms classified in category 2 should always join up to a main dwelling.
[Footnote] (1) We often mean by a household a group of people living together (for example, taking their meal together), and even more restrictive yet, a household is sometimes synonymous with a married couple.
[p.25]
4.2.2. Category 3 - Furnished rooms in a hotel, a boarding house, a furnished room, etc.
Some clients of these establishments reside there for most of the year (for example, students residing for the whole school year in a hotel room); some have no other residence (for example, young married couples not having found a place to live elsewhere).
In such cases, you will establish dwelling form for each bedroom (or possibly apartments) occupied by a household or a person living alone. You will check box 3 of the housing category and, in question 4 (page 4 of the housing form), it is box 6 which should be checked.
You will check box 3 of the category of dwelling and, in question 4 on page 4 of the dwelling form, it's box 5 which should be checked.
For people passing through in hotels, refer to paragraph 6.3.1.
Dwelling category 3 should be used only for bedrooms or furnished apartments of hotels, youth hostels, boarding houses, furnished rooms (building type 4 on question 1 of the house form). It should certainly not be used either for students living in university dorms or homes, or for workers residing in hostels (see 6.2 hereafter).
4.2.3. Temporary structure used as an abode.
This category will naturally be used for all main residences of a type 3 building (question 1 of the house form) Exceptionally, you will be about to use it for a type 1 type 5, or type 6 building, of which one part alone would be a temporary structure. If you encounter such a case describe it on the bottom of the section on page one in as much detail as possible.
4.2.4. Make- shift dwelling
This category will naturally be used for all abodes of type 2 (question 1 of the house form). You will classify as well in category 5 an impromptu shelter in an place unfit for habitation, situated inside of an ordinary building (cellar, attic, shop, barn, workshop, etc.) Specify the characteristics of the place in as much detail as possible.
4.2.5. Category 1 - Regular dwelling
This category is comprised of all the dwellings with the exception of special cases listed in categories 2 to 5, provided that they are occupied as the main residence.
When the people have several residences, their principal residence is the one in which they spend most of their time during the year.
Category 7 - Secondary residence
This category will consist of regular dwellings used as secondary residences: country houses, villas and vacation dwellings, etc.
You will classify here as well the dwellings or furnished apartments, rented or to be rented during tourist seasons in the seaside and health resorts, winter sports resorts, etc.
As it is specified in paragraph 5.1, the people who must appear in list A of the housing form are those whose dwelling is the principal residence. Therefore, you should never collect individual forms 2 for a secondary residence, even if, at the time of the census, the owners of the secondary residence are occupying it. The only exception is when these people would be absent from their regular residence during the whole operation of the census and where no one will be able to fill out their forms in their place.
[p.26]
In this case, you will consider them as people passing through and you will classify the individual forms collected in that capacity in folder number 20, while checking that there is no one written down in list A of the housing form established for this secondary residence (see 4.4.2).
4.2.7. Category 6 - Vacant dwelling
This category consists of vacant regular dwellings, meaning not occupied either as a main residence or as a secondary residence. Usually, such a dwelling is available for sale or for rent ; but it also can be neither. For example, you will check box 6 for a brand new dwelling, already attributed, but not yet occupied by its renter or its owner. In such a case, you will not establish any individual forms for the future occupants.

4.2.1 Category 1 - regular dwelling (see 4.2.6 below)
[p.39]
4.2.2 Category 2 - Independent rooms rented, sublet, or leased to certain people
Some dwelling sometimes have an independent annex, that is to say which has access to the outside, either directly, or by the intermediary of shared parts of the building, without it being necessary to go through places occupied by other people. This is the case, for example, for dwellings having a maid's room situated on another floor (frequently the case in the Parisian neighborhoods).
If the owner of the main dwelling has such an annex for himself (in order to shelter a member of his family, a maid, etc) or if the independent room is unoccupied at the time of the census, it is not necessary to establish a distinct form number 1 for the room.
If, on the other hand, the annex is rented, sublet or leased to particular people, you should establish a distinct number one form for it by checking box 2 of the category of dwelling and by adding the name of the owner of the main dwelling . (This information will possibly permit considering the main dwelling and its annex as a single unit, in some uses of the census.
The rooms classified in category 2 should always join up to a main dwelling.
4.2.3 Category 3 - Furnished rooms in a hotel, a boarding house, a furnished room, etc.
Some clients of these establishments reside there for most of the year (for example, students residing for the whole school year in a hotel room); some have no other residence (for example, young married couples not having found a place to live elsewhere).
In such a case, you will establish dwelling form for each bedroom (or possibly apartments) occupied by a household or a person living alone.
You will check box 3 of the category of dwelling and, in question 4 on page 4 of the dwelling form, it's box 5 which should be checked.
For people passing through in hotels, Refer to 6.3.1. C2.
[p.40]
Note: Dwelling category 3 should be used only for bedrooms or furnished apartments of hotels, youth hostels, boarding houses, furnished rooms (building type 4 on question 1 of the house form).
It should certainly not be used either for students living in university dorms or homes, or for workers residing in hostels (see 6.2 page 60).
4.2.4 Category 4 - Temporary structure used as a habitation
This category will naturally be used for all main residences of a type 3 building (question 1 of the house form) Exceptionally, you will be about to use it for a type 1 type 5, or type 6 building, of which one part alone would be a temporary structure. If you encounter such a case describe it on the bottom of the section on page one in as much detail as possible.
4.2.5 Category 5 - Make- shift dwelling
This category will naturally be used for all abodes of type 2 (question 1 of the house form).
You will classify as well in category 5 an impromptu shelter in an place unfit for habitation, situated inside of an ordinary building (cellar, attic, shop, barn, workshop, etc.) Specify the characteristics of the place in as much detail as possible.
Note: The preceding explanations show the close relationship which exists between question 1 of page 4 of the house form and page one of the dwelling form.
4.2.6 Category 1 - Regular dwelling
This category is comprised of all the dwellings with the exception of special cases listed in categories 2 to 5, provided that they are occupied as the main residence.
4.2.7 Category 7 - Secondary residence
This category will consist of regular dwellings used as secondary residences: country houses, villas and vacation dwellings, etc.
You will classify here as well the dwellings or furnished apartments, rented or to be rented during tourist seasons in the seaside and health resorts, winter sports resorts, etc.
[p.40]
Important note: A dwelling used as a secondary residence should obviously be the subject of a housing form. On the other hand, there does not have to be an individual form of the people who may occupy it at the time of the census: Indeed, these people already appear in List A of the housing form established at the place of their main residence, that is to say there where they living usually (see 4.4. page 47).
The only exception is when these people would be absent from their regular residence during the whole operation of the census and where no one will be able to fill out their forms in their place. In this case, you will consider them as people passing through and you will classify the individual forms collected in that capacity in folder number 20, while checking that there is no one written down in list A of the housing form established for this secondary residence (see 4.4.2).
4.2.8 Category 6 - Vacant dwelling
This category consists of vacant regular dwellings, meaning not occupied either as a main residence or as a secondary residence.
Usually, such a dwelling is available for sale or for rent ; but it also can be neither. For example, you will check box 6 for a brand new dwelling, already attributed, but not yet occupied by its renter or its owner. In such a case, you will not establish any individual forms for the future occupants.
Note: For secondary residences and vacant residences:
- No person should be written down in Lists A and B
- No individual form should be filed in the housing form
4.2.9 Category 8 - Trailer, Gypsy wagon, mobile home
You should count this category on a set date, that is to say during the day on February 20, 1975, in order to avoid omissions or successive interrogations by several census agents (see 6.3 page 61).

4.2.1 Definition of a dwelling
During the first round, you should take an inventory of the dwellings in each building, whether or not they are occupied, and draw up a housing form for each one.
Generally, the idea of dwelling is not ambiguous, given that the definition used by the census coincides with the standard meaning of the term. However, in some specific cases, the definition of dwelling lies, of necessity, with convention. The census has some conventions which are specific to it and which you should know thoroughly. By applying the rules stated below, you alone must decide if a specific premises, room or suite of rooms should be considered a separate dwelling: you should not let the residents themselves decide according to their individual assessment. It is only by doing this that the census of dwellings [locaux d'habitation] will have the desired accuracy.
Dwelling will be understood to mean all premises which are at the same time:
- separate
- independent
- used to live in

We will consider these 3 conditions one by one.
1. The premises (a single room or a suite of rooms) must be separate, i.e., it must be completely enclosed by walls or dividers [cloisons]; it should not connect with any other premises, unless by the common areas of the building (stairs, entry, etc.).
[p. 18]
2. The premises should be independent, i.e., it should possess an independent entrance to the outside, without it being necessary to cross any other premises occupied by others, either directly or through common areas of the building, to exit the dwelling.
3. The premises must be used for living; you will keep track of the present layout of the premises and not of the intended layout of the building. Thus, you will not establish a housing form for previous dwellings which have been completely modified as (or used as) offices, workshops, etc. However, you will establish a housing form for makeshift accommodations (building type 2 on question 1 of the building questionnaire) which serves as a shelter for a person, a household or a family, lacking any other residence.
Remarks.
You will keep track of the present layout of the premises and not the intended layout (while being built).
For example, if 2 dwellings have been joined by opening a passage between the two to make an apartment inhabited by a single household, you will establish only one housing form.
However, you will establish 2 housing forms when 1 dwelling has been divided into 2 independent parts (each part possessing its own individual access, with any passage between the two having been blocked and each part inhabited by separate groups of people).
Important Special Case
There are instances where 2 households, using the meaning that one normally gives to the term (1) live together in the same dwelling and share certain facilities (kitchen, toilet, etc.). In such a case, you should establish a single form (since it is a question of a housing form).
This case presents itself notably when one non- independent part of a dwelling is rented, sublet or lent to tenants, sub- tenants, lodgers or other people lodged there. This part will not be subject to [faire l'objet de] a separate housing form. The people lodged in these conditions will be written down on list A (page 2 of the form) of the landlord after the persons of his/her household, even if they take their meals at another location.
4.2.2 Page 1 of the Housing Form
Before dropping off the housing form, you will need to fill in the lower box on page 1 yourself (except the number of #2 forms collected).
If the building includes several dwellings, you should indicate precisely their location in the building. Particularly, in the case of buildings with several levels, specify,
- If necessary, the stairway;
- In all cases, the floor;
- If necessary, the dwelling number marked on the door;
- or, lacking all else, the status on the landing (when getting off the elevator, or stairways if there is not elevator).
You should classify each dwelling in one of the categories 1 through 7. Read carefully the following directions, which will clarify for you the idea of lodging [logement] in some specific instances.
The first 5 housing categories are related to "principal residences." When people have several residences, their principal residence is the one where they spend most of the year.
Category 2 - Assisted Living [Logement- foyer pour personnes agées]
Assisted living for the elderly is positioned halfway between collective housing [hébergement collectif] (retirement home, hospice) and single housing.
Such dwellings are normally found in establishments which provide optional collective services (communal restaurant) to people lodged there (normally able- bodied), while allowing for independent living. Such lodgings should also fulfill the following conditions:
- Be occupied by persons older than 60 years of age,
- Be equipped with at least one facility for cooking

[Footnote] (1) A group of persons living together (for example, taking their meals together) is often designated as a household. And, in an even more restrictive sense, household is sometimes synonymous with couple.
[p. 19]
Category 3 - Independent Rooms Rented, Sublet, or Lent to Individuals.
Some dwellings sometimes have an independent annex, i.e., it gives access to the outside, either directly or through common areas of the building, without it being necessary to cross the premises occupied by other people. This is the case, for example, of dwellings which have a maid's room located on another floor (which is common in the Paris metropolitan area).
If the owner of the main lodging has such an annex for himself (to house a member of the family, a servant, etc.) or if the independent room is unoccupied at the time of the census, it is not necessary to establish a separate housing form for it.
If, however, the annex is rented, sublet or lent to individuals, you should establish a separate form by checking off box 3 in the lodging category and adding the name of the owner of the main lodging (this information will eventually allow the main dwelling and its annex to be considered as a separate dwelling for certain uses of the census).
Category 4 - Furnished Room in a Hotel, a Furnished Room, etc.
Some clients of these establishments reside there most of the year (for example, students who live most of the school year in a hotel room); others don't have another residence.
In such cases, you will establish a housing form for each room (or, possibly, apartment) occupied by a single household or a person living alone.
For rooms which are occupied by transient clients, a housing form is not established (see the second part of the manual, paragraph A.1.1).
Category 5 - Make- shift Housing or Temporary Construction Used as Dwelling
This category will of course be used for all principal residences of a type 2 building (question 1 on the building questionnaire).
You will likewise classify an improvised shelter in a location not suited for lodging (cellar, attic, barn, shop, workshop, etc.) located inside of an ordinary building.
Specify fully the nature of the locale.
Category 1 - Ordinary Lodging
This category includes all dwellings except the exceptional cases listed in categories 2 and 5, provided that they are occupied as a principal residence. This is the category that you will most often encounter.
Category 7 - Secondary Residence
This category includes all ordinary dwellings used as secondary residences: country homes, villas, vacation housing, etc.
You will also classify in this category furnished dwellings or apartments, rented or for rent during the tourist season at seaside and winter resorts, spa towns [stations climatiques], etc., as well as apartment- type hotels ["résidences hoteliers"] and other types of "unmarked accommodations" [hébergements banalisés] (see these terms in the alphabetical glossary.)
Note
A dwelling used as a secondary resident must obviously be the subject of a housing form. However, personal forms should not be established for those people who may be occupying it when the census takes place. Indeed, these people are already in list A in the housing form established at the site of their principal residence, i.e., where they normally live.
The only exception is when these people may be away from their customary place of residence when the census is taken and where no one can fill out their forms in their stead. In this case, you will consider them as transient and you will classify their personal forms collected as such in folder # 20, verifying that no one has been listed on list A in the housing form established for the secondary residence.
Category 6 - Vacant dwelling
This category includes ordinary vacant dwellings, i.e., unoccupied as either a principal or secondary residence.
Normally, such dwelling is available for sale or rent, but not necessarily. For example, mark box 6 for a new dwelling, already allotted but not yet occupied by its renter or owner. In this case, do not establish a personal form for the future occupants.
[p. 20]
Notes on Dwelling Categories 6 and 7
For vacant dwellings and secondary residences:
- Write out in full at the top of page 1 of the housing form, the notice "vacant dwelling" or "secondary residence."
- Fill out page 4 of the form as well as you can (except questions 4, 5 and 12) with the help of the information that you are able to gather from neighbors or the town hall;
- No one should be written down on lists A and B; cross out pages 2 and 3
- There should be no personal form filed in the housing form.
Category 8 - RV's, Campers, Mobile Homes
This category comes under the special case of the fixed- date March 4, 1982 census (see the 2nd part of the manual, paragraph A.1.3).
Please Note:
In the collection phase, as with the building questionnaire you should not fill out the boxes related to the district, building and dwelling numbers at the top of page 1.

7.4 Who is a member of an institution?

For the purpose of the Census, any inmate of an institution who slept in that particular institution on Census Night must be considered as a member of that institution and enumerated as such. The following are examples of such institutions:

a. Educational institutions, e.g., boarding schools, universities, training colleges, blind schools, seminaries, convents, children's homes, orphanages, nurseries, hostels (e.g. Y.W.C.A.), etc.

b. Hospitals including mental hospitals, maternity homes, divine healers' and herbalists' establishments, rehabilitation centres and similar institutions for the physically and mentally handicapped.

c. Prisons including borstal institutions, remand homes and industrial schools.

d. Service barracks including army camps, military academies, police training schools and colleges.

Note that staff members living in private households in the institutions specified in (a), (b), (c) and (d) above must be counted as living in private houses and must not be considered as inmates of institutions.

7.5 Who constitute the floating population?

There are certain categories of persons such as outdoor sleepers and transients who may be counted more than once or may not be enumerated at all if care is not taken. These persons constitute the floating population.

The following are examples of persons in this category:

a. Persons who on Census Night were travelling in lorries, trains or on foot and therefore did not sleep in any house or compound on that night.

b. Persons who spent Census Night in hotels, rest houses, transit quarters, road camps and labour transit camps.
[p. 20]
c. Persons at airport, on ships, at ferries, at international border stations.

d. Soldiers on field exercise.

e. Fishermen and other persons who were at sea in Ghana's territorial waters on Census Night.

f. All persons who slept in lorry parks, markets, in front of stores and offices, public bathrooms, petrol filling stations, railway stations, veranda, pavements, churches and all such places which are not houses or compounds.

g. Beggars and vagrants (mentally sick or otherwise).

Persons at funerals, dances, parties, etc., on Census Night must not be treated as part of the floating population without further probing. If the respondent spent Census Night at such a social gathering he must be enumerated in the house to which he finally returned after the function. For instance, if Kwamena Appiah after the social function went to sleep with a friend after Census Night the former must be enumerated in the friend's household.


(A12) Type of residence: Mark X in the relevant box provided for the type of residence. Option 01, 02, 03, are for households while options 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12 and 13 are for institutions and the floating population.

Note that option 03 (homeless households) should be marked for only households of two or more persons sleeping outdoors.

III. Type of dwelling

In this part of the form we want to characterize the dwelling itself, separating those that effectively have been built for this purpose from the locations that not being built as dwellings, such as the case of warehouses, garages, barns, natural refuge, etc. that are inhabited at the census date.

For the places designated for habitation, we have made a classification to separate among themselves some specific types that more or less have some characteristics in common, which will permit their identification. In the first level, we have the term "formal house," and which can be an apartment, a room, or another formal construction, which means that it gives the impression that it is not improvised. The opposite happens with places listed in the second line of this same section, in which we include the type of construction that frequently appears on the edges of the cities, and that in our region are labeled as shanties, shacks, etc. Improvised constructions are those in which the materials that make up the walls and roofs are of the widest variations, including pieces of boards, metallic sheeting, pieces of cardboard, etc. In the third line, there is a type of construction that is characteristic of our rural regions, it is called 'rancho', and other rustic dwellings. Lastly, there is a line for noting the mobile dwellings, which means that they can move, as is the case of trailers, boats, tents, wagons, etc.

Among the locations not destined for habitation, which are referred to in line 14 of this section, we take into account all of those that have not been constructed, built, adapted, or transformed for human habitation, but in fact are used as a place housing on the date of the census. These units can be located in a permanent structure, such as stables, barns, warehouses, garages, etc., or can be made up of natural refuges, such as caves, as long as they are inhabited on the date of the census. In addition to marking the small box with an X, you should specify the type of location that it entails.

II. Dwelling characteristics

As mentioned previously, questions 1 through 9 of this section should be investigated for each one of the "dwellings". The specific instructions that follow will allow the enumerator to complete the work more efficiently.

Question 1: type

1. How to investigate this question

The following definitions should be considered in investigating this theme:

a) Regular house (formal): This is defined as a room or group of rooms that because of the way in which was constructed, reconstructed, adapted, or arranged, is meant to be the shelter for a household. This is the case only if it is not completely used for other purposes at the time of the census. A house is characterized by the fact that its construction is surrounded by dividing walls, partitions, fences, gardens, or land that separates one house from another (Figure 1). This also corresponds to those dwellings with a roof for only one or two contiguous houses, with water service, lighting, and toilet facilities for the exclusive use of that dwelling (Figure 2).

Note: Even though this type of dwelling is generally meant to be the place of abode for one household, two or more households may be residing therein at the time of the census. If this is the case, one census form is used for each household.

b) Apartment: This is defined as a room or group of rooms that because of the way in which was constructed, adapted, or arranged, is meant to be the shelter for a household. This is the case only if it is not completely used for other purposes at the time of the census. It is characterized by the fact that it is part of a building with one or more floors or levels and is separated from the other apartments by walls that extend from the floor to the upper level or to the roof of the dwelling.

[Figures 1 and 2 are omitted]

[p. 29]

An apartment is generally equipped with indispensable services such as water, lighting, and toilet facilities for exclusive use. As in the previous case, an apartment is generally a site built to house one household; however, it may be occupied by two or more households at the time of enumeration. If this is the case, one census form should be used for each household.

[Figures 3 is omitted]

[p. 30]

c) Room in a tenement: This is defined as a space situated in a dwelling; constructed, adapted, or arranged to provide shelter for as many households as there are rooms in the building. Each room is characterized by a direct entrance from a hallway, corridor, or patio, etc. These dwellings generally are not equipped with exclusive water service, toilet facilities, or bathrooms.

A household can occupy one or more of these rooms, in which case these rooms are considered to be one dwelling.

It can also be the case that two or more households occupy one room, in which case it is necessary to use two census forms for the same dwelling.

[Figures 4 is omitted]

[p. 31]

d) Rustic cabin or hut: This is defined as a dwelling with one or more rooms that has been constructed of natural or local materials. The walls are made of cane and mud (bajareque), mud, straw, lepa, sticks, or cane. The roof is made of straw, palm, or of similar materials. It is meant to be the place of abode for one household. This is the case only if it is not completely used for other purposes at the time of the census. It is also possible that two or more households live in a "rancho". If this is the case, one census form should be used for each household.

[Figures 5 is omitted]

[p. 32]

e) Improvised dwelling: This is defined as an independent, provisional, structure constructed with waste materials without a preconceived plan to function as a place of abode for a household. Two or more households can also occupy this type of unit. If this is the case, one census form should be used for each household.

[Figures 6 is omitted]

[p. 33]

f) Other type: This category includes the following dwellings: i) mobile units; that is, those places of abode constructed to be transported (e.g. tents, boats, ships, etc.); ii) Permanent structures not meant for human habitation such as granaries, garages, stalls, warehouses, etc.; iii) Other buildings not meant for human habitation, such as natural refuges, caves, etc.

These types are considered to be dwellings only if they are inhabited at the time of enumeration. As in previous cases, the same number of forms as the number of households in each dwelling is used.

2. How to record the data

Once the dwelling has been classified into one of the previous categories according to the respective definitions, the number of the corresponding category is circled.

If dealing with collective dwellings, according to the definition given in the attached instructions for this type of dwelling, the type is specified (e.g. hotel, hospital, barracks, etc.) and the name of the establishment is recorded. The enumerator will then skip directly to section VII, "persons in the household", to proceed to enumerate each person living in the collective dwelling.

3.3.2 Section II: Dwelling characteristics
This section contains questions and options about the characteristics of the premise. These questions are not applicable to the enumeration of the homeless population.

1. Type of dwelling

What is a dwelling?
A dwelling is a separate and independent lodging which was built, converted or arranged for human habitation. It may be inhabited at the time of the census even though it was not built as a dwelling. It may not be used in part or full for any other purpose at the time of the census.

A dwelling has two essential characteristics:

a) Separate: a lodging can be considered separate if it is surrounded by walls and covered by a roof in such a way that a person or group of persons has privacy and safety, and is separate from other persons in the community for purposes of sleeping, preparing and eating food, and protecting himself/herself from inclement weather (rain, sun, wind).

b) Independent: a lodging can be considered independent if it has direct access from the street, stairway, hallway or courtyard, i.e., when the occupants can go in and out of a dwelling without going through premises (dwellings) inhabited by other people.

There are two types of dwelling, private and collective.

Part 2: Dwelling characteristics

This section contains questions and answers for the dwelling characteristics and should only be asked of the first household (household 01) in each dwelling. For unoccupied dwellings, only fill out questions 1-4 of this section and then go to another premise.

1. Type of dwelling
Dwelling is any structurally separate and independent room, place, or lodging space which was built, renovated, or arranged for human habitation. It must not be used in its entirety for any other purpose at the time of the census.

The following are essential characteristics of a dwelling:
a) Separate: It is considered separate if it is surrounded by walls and covered by a roof, so that a person or group of persons is private and safe.

[p. 34]

b) Independent: It is considered independent if it has direct access from the street, stairway, hallway or courtyard, i.e. when one can enter or leave the dwelling without going through other premises.

[A graphic of question 1 from section 2, "type of dwelling," is included here.]

1. Types of dwellings

There are two types of dwellings: individual and collective.

1.1 Individual dwelling: This is any room, place or physical space which is structurally separate and intended to lodge one or more households. Types of individual dwellings include detached house, apartment, room in a tenement building, hut, improvised housing, and others.

Detached house: This is any separate and independent room, place, or physical space which has been built, adapted or arranged for lodging one or more households, and which is not used for any other purpose at the time of the census.

[A drawing accompanies this description.]

[p. 35]

Apartment: This is a room or collection of rooms that make up part of a building of two or more floors. It is divided from other, similar apartments by dividing walls that go from the floor to the ceiling. It is characterized by having access through a common area (hallways) and has its own water, electric, and toilet facilities.

[A drawing accompanies this description.]

Room in a tenement building: This is a room located in a site appropriate for lodging one or more households. It is characterized generally by a direct entrance through a hallway or courtyard. A household may occupy one or more rooms and this collection of rooms constitutes a single dwelling. Generally, all services (water, electricity and toilets) are shared.

[A drawing accompanies this description.]

Hut: This is a dwelling built of materials found locally (mud, straw, lepa, wood or palm leaves). It generally has a roof made of straw or palm leaves, and a dirt floor.

[A drawing accompanies this description.]

Improvised housing: This is a provisional dwelling for one or more households constructed of discarded material (plastic, cardboard, laminate, lepa).

[A drawing accompanies this description.]

[p. 36]

Other: The following are included in this category: mobile units (tents, boats, train car, etc.); as well as premises which are permanent structures not intended for human habitation, such as barns, garages, stands or stalls, warehouses, caves, etc., which are being used for human habitation at the time of the census.

[A drawing accompanies this description.]

1.2 Collective dwelling: This is any room, place or physical space which is separate and independent and in which people are subject to certain required norms of living for reasons of housing, health, work, education, religion, status as orphans, rehabilitation, etc. These premises are enumerated by special personnel.

[A graphic of option 7 from question 1 of section 2 of the census form, the "collective" category, is included here]

Hotel or boarding house: A premise in which people lodge temporarily.

Hospital or clinic: A public or private establishment, which provides medical assistance.

Boarding school: An official or private establishment where persons who are studying live permanently.

Retirement home institution or orphanage: An establishment intended for the lodging of the elderly, disabled or orphaned.

[p. 37]

Military or police establishment: Premises intended for permanently lodging members of the army or national civil police, municipal police, etc.

Other: Premises or establishments with characteristics other than the above, such as brothels and homeless shelters in which people reside permanently.

Homeless: These people typically sleep in doorways, church atriums, parks, on sidewalks, under bridges, etc. They will be enumerated by special personnel.

III. Demographic Units


3. Household

52. The concept of a "household" is defined according to the way persons contribute, individually or collectively to their food requirements and their basic needs. Two types of households must be distinguished:

a) A private household

53. A private household is made up of a grouping of people, related or not, who recognize the authority of the same individual, who is called "Head of Household," and who live under the same roof or in the same compound and who take their meals together.

54. A private household is generally made up of:
The head of household (CM)
Each spouse according to her rank
His unmarried children
His married children living in the same household and taking their meals with the rest of the household.
A child who lives with his wife and perhaps his children in the same compound or building as his parents and who provides for his own needs independently of his parents constitutes a separate household
Children with neither of their parents (father or mother) in the home
His or her elders: parents and grandparents
Other relatives: sisters, brothers, cousins, etc.
Domestic help
And lastly, other people with no family relationship (friend, someone you are helping out, apprentice, etc.)


55. There are cases where the household is reduced to a single person. For example:
A never-married person, a widowed (male or female), a divorcee (male or female) living alone, and who takes care of his or her basic needs, food, and others.

A person who is renting a room in an apartment and who doesn't take his meals with the household living in the apartment.


b) A Collective Household

56. A collective household is made up of a group of people with no family relationship who are living together within the same institution for reasons of health, study, travel, punishment (discipline) or other. The following are included in this description:
Revolutionary Teaching Center (CER) Boarding School
Military barracks
Communal living establishments for beggars, and disabled people and their families
Hotels
Prisons
Temporary worksites
Hospitals and other health establishments
Convents and other religious communities
Etc.


III. Household

99. The General Census on Population and Dwelling (RGPH) will be conducted in the entire territory of the Popular Revolutionary Republic of Guinea from the ________, 1982. It is the ________, 1982 which will be used as the date of reference for the RGPH.

100. The census enumerator (AR) shall visit all the various households in order to gather the information on each member of the household. Two types of household will be considered: the private household, and the institutions (see definition on paragraph 52-56).
If it is a question of a private household, check the corresponding box and go directly to individual characteristics.

If it is a question of a collective household, check the corresponding box and indicate the name of the collective household in question. Then specify its type by checking off the appropriate box. If it is, for example:

CER Boarding School

All students of a Revolutionary Teaching Center (CER) Boarding school are counted in their CER, as Present Residents (RP) or Absent Residents (RA). If they are with their family when the enumerator visits, they should be counted as visitors (VIS). However, the head of household should not enumerate in his household his child who is studying and who is absent and will be absent for at least 6 months. The enumerator should be vigilant and should not count students in this category unless they study in a CER, whether it is a boarding school or not.

Hotel

Households which have chosen to live in a hotel should be enumerated as a private household (as in the case of foreign consultants and their family living in the Camayenne Hotel, for example). They are to be distinguished from the other hotel clients who are there for just a few days. The latter will all be counted as members of the "Camayenne Hotel" collective household.
Example: For the Foulaya College of Agronomy (Kindia), write:
Name of establishment: Foulaya College of Agronomy (Kindia), and check off box 1, CER Boarding School below.

5.1.2 Household
The concept of household is defined taking into account the way in which people associate amongst themselves in order to provide individually or collectively for food and other basic needs.

Two types of households are distinguished: the ordinary household, and the collective household.

The ordinary household is composed of a collection of people, related or not, who recognize the authority of a single individual who is called "head of household," and who live under the same roof or in the same compound and take their daily meals together. The ordinary household is generally composed of the head of household, his spouse or spouses, and their unmarried children. In some rather common cases, the ordinary household can include married children of the head of household, relatives (parents, descendants, collaterals) of the head of the household, and sometimes, unrelated persons. The important fundamental criteria to respect in identifying the members of an ordinary household are that they:
1) Live under one roof or in the same compound
2) Recognize the authority of the head of household
3) Take their meals together.


It is important to emphasize that a person living alone, who provides for his/her own basic needs, i.e., food, lodging, clothing, etc., constitutes a household.

The collective household is composed of a group of persons without an a priori family relationship, who live together within a single institution for reasons of health, study, work, travel, punishment (discipline) or other. It is the institution which governs the conditions of their coexistence, taking into account its own objectives. The following institutions fall into this category:

[p. 26]

a) Boarding schools;
b) Military barracks;
c) Communal living establishments for beggars, and disabled people and their families;
d) Hotels;
e) Prisons;
f) Temporary construction sites;
g) Hospitals and other establishments;
h) Convents and other institutions; etc.

Ordinary and collective households are both a frame of reference in which people are identified and then counted; and statistical units of analysis. In effect, from the social, economic and demographic point of view it is very important to study certain characteristics of household, particularly those of households.


The type-of-household variable includes several modalities which are grouped at the numbering level into 2 broad categories:

1) Private household--1
2) Collective household--2

Thus for an ordinary household you would write: "Private household" and put a "1" in the corresponding box of the numbering grid. For a collective household you would write the name of the collective household as you have recorded it on the Identification and Numbering of Households and Buildings form, and then write "2" in the box of the numbering grid

3. Type of Dwelling. Indicate the type of dwelling by marking an 'x' in the appropriate box.

a) Regular Dwelling. An ordinary dwelling is a room or several rooms and their annexes in a permanent building, or in a portion of the building which is separated structurally from the building and which, given the way in which it was built, renovated or changed, is intended to be used as habitation for a household and is not entirely used for other purposes at the time of the census.

b) Dwelling: in a building not intended for habitation (factory, garage, etc.)

Put into this category housing units which have not been built, changed or equipped for residential purposes, but which are in fact used for habitation at the time of the census. Factories, garages, warehouses and offices belong to this category.

c) Hotels, Boarding Houses: This group includes permanent constructions intended to shelter more than 5 persons who are fed in exchange for paying a certain amount of money each day, week or month.

d) Institution (Hospital, Military Barracks, Prison, etc.). An institution is any establishment in which an organized group of individuals lives under an established management, such as a prison, [boarding] school, asylum, hospital, sanitarium, seminary etc.

e) Other: If the construction cannot be classified in one of the 3 groups listed above, put it in the 'other' category and specify the type of dwelling.

List in this category the buildings meant to be occupied by one household and which are used as such at the time of the census.
Note that the buildings or structures on the same land as an institution, such as a school, hospital, barracks, or other must be considered separately and counted as such. For example, if in the boundaries of a school there is a house separate and independent, resided in by the director and his family, this house must be considered as a building with one single living unit.
2) Building with several living units
This is a building occupied by several households at the time of the census even if the structure was not originally designed for this purpose.
3-4) Building for several uses, including one single living unit
A building can be used as a residence and for commercial purposes at the same time.
If the building used for both is resided in by a single household, put an "x" in box "3" of the questionnaire reserved for this purpose or an "x" in box "4" if there are several households.

[p. 22]

5) Dwelling for collective housing
You must consider a dwelling for collective housing as buildings or the building destined to shelter one or several groups of persons.
Hotels, boarding homes, hospitals, barracks, etc., belong in this category.

Chapter II. Dwelling information (page 1)
Before filling out the dwelling information, it is important that the enumerator clearly understand the difference between the two major types of dwellings:

a) Private dwelling: Those dwellings meant to function as a place of abode for one or more persons who live as a family.

These can be an independent house, a room in a tenement, apartment, or an improvised house.

b) Collective dwelling: A special place of abode in which the occupants are subject to administrative rules and who are obligated to follow the rules of living together. For example: hotel, boarding house, guest house, hospital, medical house, welfare institutions, boarding schools, orphanages, barracks, jails, etcetera.

[A graphic on page 29 illustrates the two types of dwellings]

The enumeration of collective dwellings will be done by trained enumerators who were prepared with this purpose.

1. Dwelling type
[Each definition is accompanied by an illustration]

a) Private [dwelling]:

Independent House: A dwelling surrounded by gardens, land, walls or barriers that separate it from other dwellings. Also falling into this category are contiguous homes with stand-alone roofs.

Room in a tenement: A dwelling that is part of a group of dwellings that generally have a direct entrance from a patio or hallway or corridor. Usually the inhabitants share water and toilet services.

Apartment: A dwelling that is part of a building with one or more floors, separated from the other dwellings by dividing walls, with an exit to the street through a hallway, corridor, stairway, or elevator. Dwellings constructed behind or to the side of another dwelling are also considered to be apartments. An apartment has exclusive water and toilet service available.
[p. 31]
Improvised house: A provisional dwelling constructed of waste materials such as pieces of cardboard, cans, [metal or other type of] sheets, etcetera (is in uninhabitable conditions). This type of dwelling is generally found in marginal areas of large cities.

Building not intended as a dwelling: Dwellings located in permanent buildings that were not constructed for the purpose of human habitation but at the time of enumeration (12:00 the night of May 21, 1988) are being used as dwellings. E.g. garages, factories, offices, warehouses, transit booths, workshops; also mobile units such as: tents, motor-homes, train cars, etcetera.

Natural refuges such as caves or holes in trees are considered to be dwellings if there are clear indications that they are being used as such on Census Day.

Spaces designed for servants or domestic employees are not considered to be separate dwellings unless they have an independent entrance and are rented or loaned to another family.
b) Collective [dwelling]:
A collective dwelling is a building or house where a group of unrelated persons resides. The dwelling is shared for reasons of shelter, health, education, discipline, religion, advanced age, or orphanhood. Hotels, boarding houses, guest houses, hospitals, medical houses, nursing homes, boarding schools, and hospices are included in this category.

[An illustration of a collective dwelling, a hostel, is shown.]

[p. 32]

c) Other type: This includes sanatoriums, correctional facilities for minors, convents, monasteries or seminaries, presbyteries, encampments, penitentiaries, jails, battalions, barracks, presidios, brothels, refugee camps, public municipal dormitories, etcetera.

Attention: Collective dwellings are enumerated by a special group of enumerators. If an enumerator finds a collective dwelling not on the list provided by the group leader, it should not be investigated, the enumerator should proceed to the next dwelling.

Section B. Data about the Dwelling
Type of dwelling
Before completing the data of dwelling, it is important to know the definition of dwelling for the purpose of the census and to know how to distinguish the two types of dwelling: private and collective.

Dwelling
This is a place that is structurally separate and independent, built, reformed or habilitated for the purpose of temporary or permanent housing of persons. You can also consider as dwelling any other type of non-mobile or mobile shelter occupied by persons as a place of housing at the date of the census.

Question 1: Type of dwelling
This question is completed by simple observation and to determine the type of dwelling you should consider the three following characteristics:

-That the site is used or is available for use to house persons.

-That the site is separated, that from the point of view of the members that are housed in it, they can isolated themselves from other members, principally for sleeping and eating.

-That the site is independent, understanding independence from the point of view of access to enter the inhabited space, which can be directly from the street, from a patio, corridor, hallway, or from a stairway or elevator, without having to pass through any other habitation site occupied by another household in the site or dwelling.

Mark the corresponding small box, taking into account that the private dwellings can be:
[Each definition is accompanied by an illustration]

Independent house: This is a dwelling which is entered directly from the street, can be surrounded by gardens, land, walls or fences. It generally has its own services of water, energy, and sanitation.
[p. 30]
Apartment: This dwelling forms part of a building that has one or more stories, separated from the rest of the dwellings by dividing walls, with an exit to the street through a shared passageway, corridor, stairway or elevator. An apartment has water service and sanitation services that are for its exclusive use.

Room in a rooming house or tenement: This is the space that forms part of a set of dwellings that generally have a direct entrance from a patio, hallway, or corridor. Generally, the rooms share the water services and sanitation services.

Site not built as a dwelling: These are sites that are located within permanent installations or buildings that were built for other purposes, such as: schools, workshops, factories, etc., but that are being used as dwellings on the day of the census. For this reason, you should ask about the existence of these and enumerate them.

Transitory shelter: These are sites built in transitory manner to shelter households that lost their dwellings for different reasons such as: natural disasters, confrontations, etc. These generally share the water services and sanitation services.

Improvised house: This is the dwelling built of discarded materials, such as pieces of wood, cardboard, cans, metallic sheeting, etc. This dwelling is generally found in the marginal areas of the large cities.

Other: This option should be marked only in those cases in which there is difficulty to register the dwelling in one of the previous categories.

The enumerator should take into account that in the same building it is possible to find: an independent house, one or more apartments, and one or more rooms.

Collective dwelling:
This the one that is occupied by persons who are normally not linked by ties of being relatives and who share the dwelling for reason of: work, medical attention, studies, military service, tourism, etc.

[p. 31]

The collective dwellings with few members should be enumerated by the regular enumerators of each sector. If the enumerator finds collective dwellings with numerous members, he/she should consult about the enumerators specially trained for these cases.

Mark the corresponding box of the group of Collective dwellings, taking into account that:

Collective dwelling can be:

- Hotel, hostel, guest house: These are permanent sites destined for providing shelter and service of rooms for payment.

- Hospital, sanatorium, clinic: This is an institution where ill persons are sheltered and attended.

- Orphanage or asylum: The orphanage is a dwelling designated for the permanent care of children, and the asylum is the dwelling persons of advanced age are sheltered and cared for.

- Barracks, battalion, police post: These are the installations where members of the army and police live permanently.

- Prison, reformatory: These are centers where persons are imprisoned.

-Other: This category is comprised of the collective dwellings that do not fit any of the definitions given above; for example: a student dormitory.

In the collective dwellings, you will only obtain the data that corresponds to section A 'geographic location', question 1. Type of dwelling of section B 'data about the dwelling', and the 'characteristics of the persons' (section F).

Be aware that in a building that functions as a collective dwelling there can be private dwellings with one or more households, which can form a private dwelling. If this occurs, use another form for each of the private dwellings and assign it a number that is different from that of the collective dwelling.

Example: A hotel administer lives there himself with his family, to register the data, you should proceed in the following manner:

- All of the persons enumerated as members of the collective dwelling should be assigned the number of the dwelling on the census form, for example 001, marking the box for 'hotel, hostel, or guest house';

- On the form with the data about the administrator and his family, you should assign number 002, marking the box for 'apartment'. You should fill all of the questions of sections: A 'geographic location, B 'data about the dwelling', C 'data about the household', D 'composition of the household', E 'international migration and mortality', and F 'characteristics of the persons'.

Dwelling

The dwelling - irrespective of the occupancy - , is a unit of places and rooms having specin the case ofic functions (living rooms, cooking places, sanitary places etc.), generally technically (architecturally) connected to each other. The former are originally built for human accommodation or converted into dwelling and also suitable for living at present, which has a separate entrance from a public place, courtyard or from a collectively used place inside the building (staircase, corridor etc.),. A dwelling might consist of a single premise. Vacant unoccupied dwellings, have to be enumerated, as well as holiday houses and cottage houses inhabited only in the summer. Data on vacant, unoccupied dwellings should be recorded on the information collected from the neighbors or the janitor, the file of the dwelling register of the municipality could be used as well.

The holiday houses in counties Baranya, Fejér, Somogy and Veszprém have been already enumerated in the summer months. The respective completed questionnaires ("Questionnaire for the enumeration of the holiday houses") will be handed over to the enumerators together with the List of addresses. From the questionnaires only the relevant answers should be copied to the A/ Housing questionnaire; while copying the data by comparing them with the List of addresses the completeness of the census should be checked. In case (in the summer) no questionnaire on a holiday house has been filled in a supplementary enumeration should be made.

In the case of a building being enumerated in the summer as a holiday house, but at the reference date is permanently occupied, it must be enumerated as a residential building, e.g. occupied dwelling.

Dwellings originally built for habitation but used for other purposes (e.g. as an office, etc.) will not be enumerated.

No dwelling questionnaire should be filled in on dwellings under construction, demolition or totally deserted dwellings.

What should be regarded as a dwelling?

The technically (architecturally) connected spaces having internal connections (doors) to each-other should be regarded as one dwelling even in the case of the doors are closed and the separated parts serve as a home for an other household.

Though the originally connected but later technically disconnected spaces, rooms should be regarded as independent dwellings.

A mostly separate place, building -- e.g. the summer kitchen of detached family house -- built as a part of the dwelling is considered as part of the dwelling in the case of it is used by the household living in the main building or by persons not belonging to the main household (e.g. subtenants).

Other housing unit

Other occupied housing units also cover the inhabited business units and the inhabited temporary or mobile facilities. The category covers the separate buildings (like the summer kitchens) built for rental on the parcel of the main building. These facilities will be enumerated only in the case of occupied.

Occupied temporary facility

The category "inhabited temporary or mobile facility" covers the inhabited hovels, huts, caves, auto bus bodies, occupied ships, floating mills, railway carriages, circus coaches, etc.

Institutional household

The category "institutional household" includes the establishments for collective accommodation or accommodation and boarding of humans (e.g. infant's and children's homes, dormitories, old people's homes, hospitals, recreation houses, convalescent hospitals, hotels, workers' homes, etc.) run by public organs, companies, factories, etc. The category does not cover the dwellings wholly or partially rented by companies, institutions for the accommodation of their employees. Nevertheless workers' homes maintained by companies, factories are classified as institutional households. (See in detail chapter 8. "Enumeration of the institutional households").

1. Designation of the housing unit

In answering the question only one designation should be underlined, i.e. marked.

Dwelling
The answer "occupied dwelling" or "vacant dwelling" will be marked only if the premises or group of premises suits the definition described in part "3. Scope of the census and the main definitions used".

Vacant dwelling
The dwelling will be regarded as vacant only if at the reference date of the census no person was registered by the authorities temporarily or permanently living there.

Holiday house
If at the reference date of the census at least one person was temporarily or permanently registered as inhabitant, the holiday house should be marked as "occupied dwelling".

Cottage (farm) house occupied only in the summer
The answer "Cottage (farm) house inhabited only in summer" should, be marked in the case of the dwelling is used during the summer season.

Cottage (farm) houses occupied at the reference date of the census should be marked as "residential building".

Institutional household
In the case of "Institutional household" is marked the designation (e.g. hospital, worker's home, dormitory, student's home, etc.) should be indicated too.

Occupied (inhabited) store, workshop, hovel

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Question 12: Household
Encircle code 1 if the household is an ordinary household, and encircle code 2 if the household is a special household. Write down the selected code in the available box.

An ordinary [private] household is an individual or a group of people living in a physical/census building unit or [any] part thereof who make common provisions for food and other living essentials.
Example:
1. Someone who rents a room or is part of a census building (in some areas called lodging), but manages for food by himself, is considered as one ordinary separate household.
2. Some people live together in one room or in one census building or physical building and they manage for food by themselves. This is assumed to be one ordinary household.
3. Two families stay together in a census building, and management of food is done by one of the household members. [This] is considered one ordinary household.
4. Two families that stay disjointed in two census buildings, and management of food is done by one of the household members, are therefore considered one ordinary household, if the census building referred to is still in one segment. But if that census building is located on different segments, then [the two] families referred to are assumed to be two ordinary households.
5. A housemaid who lives in their employer's house is considered a household member of her employer. On the contrary, if [she is] living outside her employer's household, she is considered to be a household member [in the household] where he/she resides.


Institutional households consist of:
1. One who lives in a dormitory, that is a residence that manages everyday needs and is arranged by a foundation (non-profit institution) or body, for example nurse dormitory, students' hostel, ABRI (National Army) dormitory, etc. A member of ABRI who lives in a dormitory with relatives which is managed every day by the household itself is not considered a special [institutional] household.
2. One who lives in a reformatory, prison, and other similar types of housing.
3. Ten people or more who lodge together.
Explanation:
1. A household that rents a room or a part of a building lodging fewer than 10 people is considered one ordinary household. If those lodgers total 10 people or more, it is considered a special [institutional] household.
2. Dormitory, reformatory or institutional society official members and other similar persons who stay by themselves and also with their wife, child and/or other household members are considered ordinary households.

Question 408: Occupied residence
Fill in code 1 in Column (16) if the house is occupied, otherwise fill in dash (--), and the questioning is stopped here.

Explanation:
1. If the occupant of a census building has left for fewer than 6 months, the census building is categorized as an occupied census building. If he/she has not yet come back through the end of the enumeration period, then Column (16) is still coded 1 and Column (17) through Column (25) is filled by collecting information from the closest neighbor who knows.
2. If the occupant of a census building has left for more than 6 months, the census building is categorized as an unoccupied census building.


Question 409: Total number of households in the Census building
This column is filled if Column (16) coded 1, and asks total number of households that stay in this house. The enumerator must carefully determine the total number of households, because households [are] usually considered as a family.

Household cannot be considered as a family. Do not determine the total number of households from family card.

Family usually consists of people who are related, like father, mother, and child. Whereas a household may consist of people who have or do not have kinship ties, like little sister/brother, daughter/son in-law, driver, house maid, etc.

Ordinary household is a person or a group of people who live in a part or the whole physical census building, usually live together, [and] also eat from one kitchen if the daily needs are organized together as one. An ordinary household usually consists of a father, a mother and children.
Other households that are considered as ordinary households are:
1. An individual who rents a room or part of the census building but provides his/her own meals.
2. A family living separately in two census buildings but eats from the same kitchen, as long as both census buildings are in the same segment group.
3. Lodging with meals with fewer than 10 lodgers. Lodgers are considered as members of the landlord's household.
4. Several people who rent a room together in one census building or physical building, although they manage their own meals, are considered an ordinary household.


Special household covers:
1. People living in a dormitory, which is a place where all daily needs are under the responsibility of a foundation or organization. Examples: nurse's dormitory, college students' dormitory, or military barracks. A military member who lives in a dormitory with a family and provides for his daily needs is not a special household.
2. People living in a correctional institution, orphanage, prison and so forth.
3. Groups of people living in lodging with meals, where the total number is more than or an average of 10 people.


Explanation:
1. A household that has lodging with meals consisting of fewer than 10 lodgers is considered one ordinary household, including lodgers. If the number of lodgers is more than or an average of 10 people, then the household is considered an ordinary household, but the lodgers with meals are considered a special household.
2. Dormitory organizer, orphanage organizer, prison organizer and others who live alone or together with their children, spouses or other household members, are considered ordinary household.


Question 411: Household type
Fill in code 1 in Column (19) if [the household] is an ordinary household, and dash (--) if [it is a] special household.

Many other arrangements will, however, be encountered and further

[p.14]

guidance can be obtained from the following:

(i) All lodgers, domestic helpers, farm hands and other employees who live in the dwelling and consider it their usual place of residence should be included as members of the household.
(ii) If an individual sleeps in the same structure as the main household and shares at least one meal per day with the household, include him as a household member.
(iii) A domestic employee who sleeps in the house or in an outbuilding on the premises is to be listed as a member of the household if he or she sleeps there on an average of at least four nights per week and shares at least one meal daily. If the helper's partner or children live on the premises, all members of this family are to be included with the main household if they share meals with the main household. If there are separate arrangements for cooking they should be considered as a separate household.
(iv) In the case of a tenement yard where there is a series of rooms rented to different persons by the landlord, each person or group of persons who live and share meals together is regarded as a separate household. A household in this special context may share external bathroom, toilet or even kitchen facilities with other similar households.

Non-private Households are comprised of persons who live collectively in institutions or other such organizations.

3.8 Private Dwelling

(d) Household - consists of a person or a group of persons who live together in the same dwelling unit or homestead, and eat together. It is important to remember that members of a household are not necessarily related (by blood or marriage). The household is the most convenient small group of persons for census purposes. You will enumerate the population in dwelling units and homesteads by households.

27. Dividing a structure or a homestead into households may not be easy. However the following examples should guide you in deciding who should form a household.

28. For Census purposes, you will list only those who spent the Census Night i.e. the Night of 24/25 August in the household, whether visitors, servants, etc

29. A household may consist of one or more persons and may occupy a whole building or part of a building or many buildings in the same compound/homestead.

30. If two or more groups of persons live in the same dwelling unit and have separate living and eating arrangements, treat them as separate households.

31. A domestic servant who eats with the household should be included with the household. If the servant cooks and eats separately he/she should be enumerated as living in a separate household. The particulars of persons (visitors) who spent the reference night with another household should be recorded on the questionnaire for that household.

32.In a polygamous marriage if the wives are living in separate dwelling unit and cook and eat separately, treat the wives as separate 'households'. Each wife with her children will therefore constitute a separate household. The husband will be listed in the household where he spent the reference night. If the wives eat together and live in the same dwelling unit then treat them as one 'household'.

33. It is the custom in many parts of Kenya for boys to live in separate quarters between circumcision and marriage, while continuing to take their meals with their parents. Such boys' quarters do not fall precisely within the definition of a household for they normally eat but do not sleep in their parents' household. Enumerate them with their parent's households.

Question 1p. Type of dwelling

Completing the answer to this question the enumerator is to circle the code corresponding to one of prompts given.
Dwelling house is a permanent building for one, two or more flats intended for a long durability.

If one household occupies the whole one-flat house (irrespective of ownership), code 1 "individual (detached) house" is to be circled.

If two or more households live in such a house, code 2 "part of individual house" is to be circled for each household (even if the house is owned by one householder).

If the house comprises two or more flats, codes "separate flat" or "common (communal) flat" are to be marked according with the occupancy.

If one household occupies a separate flat, code 3 "separate flat" is to be circled.
Separate flat is considered a dwelling used and equipped for permanent residence, which consists of one or more living rooms separated from other rooms by main walls and has a separate exit to the staircase, common hall or passage or directly to the street or yard, if it is occupied by one household.

If more than one household live in a flat, code 4 "common (communal) flat" is to be marked (even in case of one tenancy account for the flat). This code is also used for households living in barracks and corridor-type houses which are not related to hostels.

If a household lives in an individual house or separate flat, but only occupies part of the floor space of the house or flat and gives the other part in rent, this household is considered to live in individual house or separate flat.

For households living in hostels for workers, clerks, students and pupils (irrespective of the type of building: flat-, corridor-, section- or barrack-type) code 5 "hostels" is to be marked.

Code 6 "boarding house for the aged and disables, infant house, children's home, etc." is to be circled for those aged, disabled and children in infant houses, children's homes, boarding schools for orphans and children left without parental care, etc.

Code 7 "other institutions" is to be marked for those living in barracks, prisons, monasteries, and other similar institutions.

For persons living in hotels, guest houses or motels code 8 "hotel" is to be marked.

If a household lives in a yurt, tent, van, hut or other similar building, code 9 "other residential premise" is to be marked.

Persons living in non-residential premises (garages, pantries, classrooms, kiosks, working rooms of institutions), stock buildings (farms) code 10 "non-residential premise used for living" is to be marked.

5.3 Two household types: Private and collective households
The distinction between a private and a collective household is sometimes very difficult to make. Private households can sometimes also be found at the premises of an otherwise collective household.
Private households

The households in your enumeration area will mostly be private households. They can be single person or multi-person households.
A single-person household comprises of one person living in a part or the whole of the dwelling unit, arranging for food and other life necessities on his own without joining other persons and possessing his own civil registration book.
A multi-person household comprises of two or more persons living in a part or the whole dwelling unit, and who together arrange for food and other life necessities and share a common registration book.

Collective households

Occasionally, a collective household will however be found. Collective households would consist of accommodation units of an enterprise, factory, school, temple, hospital, etc. Examples of collective households are KM 62 Orphanage House, Middle Level Medical School hostel, Dongdok University hostel, a temple where the monks live. The pre- conditions for being enumerated in the collective household are;
That s/he is to be registered in your enumeration area (see also page 13)
That the persons must be registered under the common registration book for the collective household;
Otherwise, the persons found in the collective household are to be enumerated in their respective private households.

Although tied accommodation and collective households might look similar, a clear distinction must be made between the two. In tied accommodation occupants usually live in private households and maintain separate registration books, which is not the case in a collective household.

2. Examples of Group Quarters are Prisons, Leper Colonies, Police and Military Barracks, Convents, "Bush Societies", Hotels.

3. In Item "C" write the name of the Group Quarter and if appropriate, enter the type of Quarters. For example enter "Travelers Roast" as the name of the Group Quarters and Hotel as the type of quarters.

4. Name-Column (1): Enter the name of each person interviewed; no particular listing order is required.

5. Relationship-Column (2): Enter the name which best describes the person's status in the Group Quarters. If for example, a prison is under enumeration, the person's relationship will be "inmate;" If the quarter is a hotel the relationship will be "lodger."

6. Remaining Columns form PH-7: Enter all information required in column 2 through 18.
c. Special group quarters:
1. In most D.A.'s the supply of Form PH.-7 in your enumeration Workbook will be more than sufficient, however in areas where a large institution or other such place is located you will not have a sufficient supply. Your supervisor will give you extra Forms; these must be included in your Workbook when you complete your B.A.

1.5.4 Household
It consists of one or more persons, related or unrelated, who live together and make common provision for food. They regularly take all their food from the same pot, and/or share the same grain store (nkhokwe) or pool their incomes for the purpose of purchasing food. Persons in a household may live in one or more dwelling units.

"Usual residents" will be defined as those people who stayed continuously in the household being enumerated for a period of 6 months or more. The questions to be asked in case of doubt, if a person visits home regularly will be "Where does he spend most of his time?" or "nthawi zambiri amakhalitsa kuti?" in Chichewa. If he/she spends more than 6 months in a certain area then that will be his/her area of residence.
1.6 Types of households
There are three major types of households, namely, regular, collective and homeless.

1.6.1 Regular household
A household whose members share dwelling units and meals during the census period.

1.6.1.1 Special type of regular households:

1.6.1.1.1 Polygamous household(s): a situation where there is one husband and more than one wife and their children.


a.) Consider as one household if they live and eat together from the same pot and use common budget.
b.) If not, count as several households.

Note: a husband should be enumerated in the household he slept last night. If all the wives are in the same EA ensure that a husband is enumerated only once.

1.6.2 Collective household
Refers to a large group of people who live together and sharing common facilities such as kitchen, toilet, lounge, and dormitories. In such situation the residents may not have complete independent quarters that qualify as housing units as their living quarters during the census period. Examples of collective households are hospitals, hotels, lodges, guest houses, camps, institutions (charitable homes, military barracks, boarding schools, convents, prisons, etc.)

In some instances there will be both regular household units and collective quarters on the premises e.g. the hospital staff may have their own dwelling units within the hospital premises; employees in hotels may have separate apartments which qualify as dwelling units; etc.

1.6.3 Homeless
Persons without regular shelter but are found together should be enumerated as one household.


Section L: Identification Particulars for All Households


L7. Type of household:
Find out the type of household as soon as you start the interview. Types of households are well described on page 8 and 9 of the manual. If the household is regular, shade 1 and ask all the questions. If it is either hospital/hotel/lodge, other collective or homeless, shade the appropriate code and ask questions P3 to P8 only; other information will be collected from their usual residences.

Question A1

[Question A1 of the enumeration form is not presented here.]

Purpose
The purpose of this question is to obtain the stock or number of LQs by types.

Definition
A chart is provided on page 60 which shows the various categories of LQs and the explanation for each LQ categories is given on page 61 to 65.

[p.60]
[The chart showing the various categories of living quarters is not presented here.]

[p.61]

[i] Have been built or converted for living.

This category includes places or structures built specifically for the purpose of living or sleeping.

The structure need not be large or in perfect condition but it should be intended for living and sleeping.

Some structures may have been built for the dual purpose of living/sleeping and other purposes such as business. Normally, spaces used for living/sleeping purposes would be separated from the rest by partitions or walls as found in shophouses.

Some structures originally may not have been intended as living quarters, but have been converted as such. This conversion may occur by having additional partitions or walls for privacy or it may be renovated and equipped with bathing, cooking and toilet facilities. Caves which have been similarly converted should be included under this category.

The category "Have been built or converted for living" is classified into:
(a) Housing units
(b) Collective living quarters


(a) Housing Units
Housing units are classified into five (5) main types namely:
(i) House
(ii) Flat/apartment/condominium/shophouse
(iii) Room (with direct access to outside)
(iv) Improvised/temporary hut
(v) Others


[p.62]

House
This unit can be further subdivided into:

Detached House (Code 01)
A separate house with does not share a common wall with another house. (See Photo F1 and F2.)

Semi-detached House (Code 02)
One of two houses, which share a common wall, but have separate access to the outside. (See Photo F3)

Terrace, Row or Link, Townhouse (Code 03)
Houses built in rows of three or more. Each house has a common wall or walls adjoining with the next house. (See Photo F4)

This category also includes cluster houses which are attached to one another in various ways either at the front or at the back but not in the form of terrace houses.

Townhouse is similar to a double-storey terrace. The only difference is that each floor is being occupied by different occupants and it has its own separate access to the outside.

Longhouse (Sabah and Sarawak) (Code 04)
Refers to terrace house which is commonly found in the interior areas of Sabah and Sarawak. (See Photo F5.)

[p.63]

Flat/apartment/condominium/shophouse (Code 05 - Code 06)
A self-contained living quarters that is enclosed with a separate access to the outside and has its own cooking and bathing facilities. It may be found in a housing block (Code 05) or shophouse (Code 06). (See Photo F6 - F9.) It is important that you differentiate between a medium-rise apartment and a townhouse.

Room (with direct access to the outside) (Code 07)
It refers to a room inside or attached to a certain structure and has a direct access to the outside e.g., room in a shophouse, office, in/attached to a house, factory, etc.

Improvised/temporary Hut, etc. (Code 08)
This category is for interior living quarters generally considered as temporary and unfit for living. They are usually built of discarded materials e.g., planks, plywood, zinc, etc. and are normally found in urban areas or urban fringes, e.g., a cluster of huts at a construction site. (See Photo F10)

Others (Code 09)
This category should be marked if you are not able to classify the LQ into any of the above-mentioned categories (Code 01-Code 08), e.g., caves which have been converted for habitation and sleeping.

It includes all types of mobile LQs built, e.g., camps or mobile units like boats and "sampan".

Living quarters on rafts which are not mobile should be included in this category. It should be classified in either Code 01 or 02.

[p.64]

b) Collective Living Quarters (Code 10 - Code 16)
LQs in this category are meant for living by a large group of individuals and usually have some common facilities such as kitchen, toilet, bathroom, lounge and bed rooms. Examples of collective living quarters are hotel, hospital, hostel, social welfare homes, prison, temporary labor camp, etc.

Large collective LQs normally form one EB itself. Other separate LQs or LQs within the compound of the collective LQs should be enumerated separately.

Charitable, religious and social welfare institutions include old folks' homes and children's homes which need moral/financial support and homes for abandoned children; homes for the retarded, drug rehabilitation centers and reform schools, convents, etc.

Temporary labor camps are temporary places of abode in huts, camps and the likes which share communal facilities provided by the employer. The entire unit should be regarded as one labor camp. Common examples are public work camps, temporary homes for construction workers and camps for loggers.

If the workers are housed in permanent structures, e.g., staff quarters, estate workers' quarters, etc., it should be classified under "Housing Units".

Army barracks should be categorized under "Others".

Detailed information on the enumeration of collective living quarters is given in the "Instructions for Special Enumeration" (Document 16).

[p.65]

[ii] Not intended for living but was used for this purpose on Census Day (Code 17 - 20)

In this category, structures/spaces are built for other purposes, e.g., an office, school, market, stall, hut, etc. and have not been converted.

The structure originally may be intended for an office, stall or hut during the daytime but has been converted for living on Census Day.

There is also a possibility that empty spaces are used as LQs, e.g., the compound of a house or an open verandah.

The LQs in this category may be a natural shelter, e.g., caves which are not converted.

How to ask the question
Question A1 need not be asked. The answer can be obtained from observation.

How to record the answer
Mark "X" in the relevant box.


[p.66]

Reminder: If your answer is marked one of the codes from Code 10 to Code 20, you should end the interview at Part A and proceed to Part B - Household Particulars. You do not need to ask Questions A2 to A9.

1.4.4. Filling the questions on housing

After this introduction, we shall now come to the filling of the housing questionnaire per se.

These questions are also to be asked to the household head. However, if the latter is not available, any person usually belonging to the household may answer the questions. For this housing questionnaire, no priority is given to the questions on housing units or on households. All questions deal with the dwelling units in the same way. In all events, the answers to the questions will be given by the person who is closest in rank to the household head.

However, the census enumerator shall strictly follow the order in which the questions are displayed, so that to not miss any of them.

Circle the number corresponding to the answer, when applicable.

In the case of a compound occupied by a single household, consider the characteristics of the main hut, without taking into account the number of rooms.

N.B: One shall never circle more than one number for a given question.

Single house

The single house is a dwelling with independent access from the street or field that does not share walls, roof, nor floors with another dwelling.

For the purpose of he census, houses build of discarded materials are considered single houses.

The dwellings that are found in buildings not intended for habitation, like: lighthouses, warehouses, workshops, factories, schools, stores or similar, are single houses.


Apartment in a building or house in a community

This type of dwelling forms part of a set of dwellings that share at least one wall, roof, or floor.


Rental room [room on a rooftop]

[Illustration]

2.1 Dwelling
The principal purpose of the census is to count all the dwellings and the people who live in them, for this reason it is important that you visit all the dwellings in your area of work.

What is a dwelling? It is any place that is set off, normally, by walls and a roof made of any material, which is utilized to live, that is, eat and protect oneself from the environment, and where the people can enter or leave without passing through the interior of the rooms of another dwelling.

-Any area which is set off, and which, at the time of the census, is used to live, should be considered a dwelling, even if it was not constructed for habitation.
-In contrast, constructions that have been made to live in, but which, at the time of the census are used for other purposes (warehouse, local commerce, office, workshop or other), should not be considered dwellings.

There are two types of dwellings: private and collective. It is your job to enumerate the private ones; the collective dwellings will be enumerated by other personnel.

Private dwellings

One which serves as lodging for one or more people, who may or may not be relatives.
The types of private dwellings which you might find in your work area are explained next:

[P. 8]

Independent house

Does not share walls, a roof or a floor with another dwelling. Duplexes are considered independent houses.
[Drawings of three different types of dwellings.]

[P. 9]

Apartment in a building

Forms part of a group of dwellings that are joined together and share a wall, the roof, or a floor with another dwelling.

[Drawing of this type of dwelling]

Dwelling or room in a tenement house

Shares the wall, roof, or floor with another dwelling, and in addition, the occupants can share water or sanitation services.

[Drawing of this type of dwelling]

[P. 10]

Dwelling or room on the roof

This is only considered a dwelling when the room is inhabited and its occupants do not share food costs with the occupants of the apartment to which the room belongs. If it is not inhabited, it is not considered a dwelling.

[Drawing of this type of dwelling]

Premises not constructed for inhabitation

Places that were built for a purpose other than habitation, but that at the time of the visit are inhabited. For example: factories, lighthouses, workshops, warehouses, offices, etc.

[P. 11]

Mobile dwelling

Dwellings that can be transported from one place to another. For example: circus tents, railroad cars, trailers, boats, or any other. If, during the census, these are not inhabited, they are not considered dwellings.

[Drawing of a train car]

Refuge

A place that is improvised or adapted for living. For example: caves, sewers, drainage pipes, under a bridge, etc. These are only dwellings when they are inhabited.

[Drawing of a cave]

[P. 12]

Independent houses, apartments in buildings, and community dwellings or rooms can be inhabited or uninhabited at the time of the visit.

An uninhabited dwelling is one in which no one is living during the census period, and which is totally constructed and available for inhabitation.

Refuges, constructions that are incomplete or in ruins, tents, railroad cars, boats, trailers, or any vehicle which is not being utilized for living at the time of the visit is not considered an uninhabited dwelling.

A temporary-use dwelling is one which is only utilized seasonally or on the weekends, for rest, diversion or sickness, etc.

Collective dwelling

One which is meant to lodge people for reasons of health, education, rehabilitation, etc. and should comply with rules of communal living and behavior.
The types of collective dwellings are the following:

[Drawing of a hotel]

Hotel, motel, inn.
Boarding house, guest house, house of assisted living.
Hospital, insane asylum, clinic, health house.
Orphanage, hospice, asylum, retirement house, nursery.
Boarding school, student residence.
Convent, monastery, seminary, religious congregation.
Public shelter or dormitory.
Work camp, work barracks, petroleum platform.
Jail, prison, reformatory, juvenile prison, rehabilitation center for law breakers, correctional facility, penitentiary, penal colony.
Military headquarters, encampment, garrison, base, police, military or naval detachment.
Other (camp for refugees or victims, brothel).

[P. 13]

You should not enumerate these types of dwellings; other personnel are in charge of them.

Dwelling
This is the space generally delineated by walls and roofs of any material, with an independent entrance, that was constructed for the habitation of people, or that at the moment of data collection is used to live -- that is, to sleep, prepare food, eat, and protect oneself from the environment.

The independent entrance permits the occupants to enter from and go out to the street, the field, or rather the space common to other dwellings, like a hallway, patio, or stairs, without passing through the rooms of another dwelling.

The private inhabited dwelling
This is the dwelling that at the moment of data collection has habitual residents, whether or not it has been constructed or adapted for such.

This includes whatever corner, refuge, mobile installation, improvised or local that at the moment of data collection is used for the habitation of people.

The private households with inhabitants are classified as:
1. Independent house
2. Apartment in an apartment building
3. Dwelling in tenement building
4. Dwelling in a room in the attic
5. Premise not intended for habitation
6. Mobile dwelling
7. Shelter


Uninhabited dwelling
This is a private dwelling that at the moment of data collection does not have habitual residents, it is not utilized as a premise with economic activity, it is not used in a temporary way, and it is completely constructed and ready to be inhabited.

[p. 16]

Dwelling of temporary use

a. Whole Flats. Flats designed for living condition for a household or consisting of a few rooms shall be considered as to be "a whole flat";

b. A part of the whole flat. Flats which were given by a housing office or factory or other organizations for two families by issuing orders for both of them or a private flat in which two or more households are living shall be considered as to be "a part of the whole flat".


In case two or more households are living in a whole flat (not depending whether the flat was issued by a housing office or factory or other organizations for two families by issuing orders for both of them) one of the household shall be considered as living in a whole flat and the remaining households shall be considered as to be living in" a part of the whole flat".

In order to conduct a survey on housing provisions and condition the indicator of "a part of the whole flat" was added into the census questionnaire. In order to make distinction between "a whole flat" and "a part of the whole flat" a question "the numbering if the households in the flat" was added.

Note: Enumerators shall explain to the households living in one flat that there is no significance in numbering them as 1; 2 or 3 and ask them to decide which one of them they would like to be written under the number One. If they have disagreement on that then the Enumerator shall choose which one he/she shall write under the number One.

The Housing Census Questionnaire for the household under the number one shall include answers for questions on the total number of rooms; the size of living (or useful) area; the number of rooms; the number of permanent residents; conditions and total area of the flat. The Housing Census Questionnaires for the households (they shall be considered as living in "a part of the whole flat") under the numbers 2, 3 or 4 shall include only the number of rooms of the size of the living (or useful) area they are living in as well as the number of its own household members. And conditions of the flat shall be the same as the household's under the number one.

Within this category we may include a set of bedrooms grouped together that share the same facilities (bathroom, kitchen, water);

Note: In case you find bedrooms grouped together (train house) as showed in the picture below, and in each one of them lives a household, you should collect dwelling characteristics and condition for each of the households.

Each bedroom (train house) may have different characteristics concerning the type of construction material. For instance, one bedroom may have the flooring or ceiling different for the others.
[Illustration omitted]

Part of a commercial building: refers to a dwelling unit which is part of an office building. There is no separation between the shop/store and the house, i.e., the house is an extension of the shop/store;

Dwelling units are classified as a) private dwellings; and b) collective dwellings.

a) Private dwellings
A private dwelling is understood to be a structurally separate and independent place of abode that has been constructed, transformed, or adapted for human habitation. This is only the case if, at the time of enumeration, it is not being used completely for other purposes.

The dwelling may be made up of a room or a group of rooms, in which a person or a group of persons live together under the same roof if the dwelling satisfies the conditions of separateness and independence. Separateness is understood to be the fact that the building is surrounded by walls, partitions, or dividers that isolate it from other buildings. Independence means that the building has a direct entrance from the street or from a hallway, stairway, corridor, etc., that allows the occupants to enter and leave without passing through other dwellings.

Therefore, private dwellings constitute the following: A family house or an independent part of it, a poor, rustic dwelling, a hut, an improvised shelter made from debris or waste material, an apartment, a room in a tenement, and those buildings not meant for human habitation but are used for that purpose at the time of the census.

b) Collective dwellings
Collective dwellings comprise those buildings that are structurally separate and independent, meant to provide shelter for large groups of persons. This includes hotels, hostels, guest houses where more than 5 persons are lodged, hospitals, welfare institutions, convents, boarding schools, workers' camps, barracks, etc.


Question #1

Type of dwelling

Private dwelling

a. How to carry out the investigation

1. Family house: A family house is a room or group of rooms situated in a building constructed of materials with a guaranteed durability of 10 years or more, or located in a structurally separate part of the building. The manner in which the building was constructed, reconstructed, or adapted is designed to be the place of abode for a household. It is only considered a family house if it is not being completely used for other purposes at the time of enumeration. Every dwelling, in this case "family house", should meet the conditions of separateness and independence and should have a direct entrance from the street, hallway, garden, or property.

2. Hut, shack (rancho): A "rancho/choza" is a room or group of rooms constructed of rustic materials without any special treatment. These structures generally have a roof made of vegetation (palm, straw, etc.) and their durability does not usually exceed 10 years. These can also be defined as typical rural constructions of light materials, separate and independent.

3. Improvised dwelling: (debris, waste, tent): An improvised dwelling is a type of shelter principally constructed of waste materials and is found to be inhabited at the time of the census. Included in this category are mobile dwellings such as trailers, vessels [boats] and railcars used as dwellings at the time of the Census.

4. Apartment: An apartment is a place of abode located in a permanently constructed building meant to shelter multiple households, and that has an independent entrance from a hallway, stairway, or other common space in the building. An apartment can also have direct access from the street that allows the occupants to enter and exit without passing through structures occupied by other persons.

5. Room in a tenement: A room in a tenement is a place of abode in a tenement building that constitutes an independent dwelling. It is located in a common-use hallway and basic services are shared.


[p. 24]

6. Place not intended for [human] habitation but used as a dwelling: Included in this category are stores, workshops, granaries, garages, warehouses, or other structures that were not originally designed for human habitation but at the time of the census are found to be occupied for this purpose.


Collective dwelling
7. Hotels, hostels, and guesthouses: These are places of abode where 5 or more persons are lodged.

8. Other type of collective dwelling: These are structures designed to shelter large groups of persons; e.g. hospitals, convents, boarding schools, encampments, penal centers, welfare institutions, or other types of dwellings.


b. How to record the data
Once the "type of dwelling" is determined, the corresponding box is marked with an "X".

Concept of dwelling:
This is all places delimited by walls and roof where one or more persons habitually reside, which means that they sleep, prepare food, and are protected from the elements. It also means that the persons can enter or leave the dwelling without passing through another dwelling, using direct access from the street or through a corridor. You should be aware that there are dwellings with one front but in the interior there can be other dwellings, which you will have to enumerate separately.


Type of dwelling:
You will understand type of dwelling as the form in which each of them is occupied. For the purpose of the census, they are divided into two large groups: private or collective.

Question 1
Private dwelling:
This is every dwelling that is occupied by one or more groups of persons or one person, linked or not by family ties. This type of dwelling should be structurally separate and independent. Private dwellings are also classified into the following types:

01. House
This is a habitation unit that has a solid construction, made to be inhabited permanently.

02. Country house (quinta)
This is a habitation unit that has a solid construction, made to inhabit permanently, and generally built in the outside of the city or in a rural area.

03. Room in a tenement
This is a habitation unit in a rooming house that constitutes an independent dwelling. The rooms are located along a common corridor and generally have some common services.

04. Hut or shack
This is any habitation built with rustic materials, generally tending to have a roof of palm, straw, etc. of limited durability. These are very common in the rural zones.

05. Improvised dwelling
This is a habitation unit built with discarded materials, such as cardboard, pieces of metal, plastic, scraps of all types, etc. This will include dwellings that are semi-destroyed by the earthquake, the war, and those in spontaneous settlements that have these characteristics and are occupied on the date of the census. Also this includes mobile homes such as boats, motor homes, etc.

06. Apartment or flat in a house or building
This is a habitation unit located in a building of permanent construction that has an independent entrance through a corridor or stairway with direct access from the street, that permits the inhabitants to enter and leave without passing through spaces occupied by other persons, and that generally have independent services.

07. Premise used as dwelling: (warehouse, garages, etc.)
This is a commercial space or construction that was not originally destined to be inhabited by persons, but that is occupied for this purpose on the date of the census. This could be a warehouse, workshop, store, abandoned railroad cars or buses, etc.


Collective dwelling:
This is a habitation or building where a group of persons reside without family ties among them and who share the habitation for reasons of housing, health, studies, religion, old age, orphans, etc.

Among the collective dwellings we include:
08. Hotels, hostels and guest houses

09. Jails and juvenile detention centers

10. Hospitals and sanitariums

11. Asylums and orphanages

12. Convents and boarding schools

13. Other type of collective dwelling


Observations:
a) The dwellings that house five or fewer guests or renters as habitual residents, for the purpose of the census, should be considered private dwellings.

b) The enumerators will enumerate all of the collective dwellings except the military institutions and the prisons, which will be enumerated by members of the Ministry of State and Defense.

c) In every collective dwelling you should investigate if within them, there is a dwelling for the caretaker, supervisor or administrator, or of any other person who does not share the common life of the rest of the residents and has a dwelling with his/her own family. In this case, these persons will be considered as residents of a private dwelling, and therefore you will complete a separate form.

d) The collective dwellings will be enumerated as if they were private dwellings, which means that you will fill in all of the form, with the exception of "Characteristics of the dwelling" and the question regarding family relationships.

Type of dwelling:
For the purposes of this census, the dwellings are divided into private and collective dwellings, and those open spaces that are generally used only for sleeping, which we will call homeless areas [s in vivienda].


Dwelling
This is any premise composed of one or more rooms which are structurally separate and independent, and intended to lodge one or more persons who may or may not be related.

It is separate because it is bound by walls or fences and it is independent because it is possible to enter and exit without going through other dwellings, with direct access from the street or a hallway.

Private dwelling:
House
This is a permanent housing unit built with durable material that is not used for other purposes at the time of the Census.

Country house [quinta]
This is a housing unit with more physical space than a house, generally built in rural areas or on the outskirts of the city.

Apartment
This is a premise generally located in a building and that has an independent entrance from a hallway or stairway, with direct access from the street and independent utilities.

Room in a tenement
This is an independent dwelling located along a common hallway, courtyard or open-air passage/corridor and that has some shared services (water and sanitary services).

Hut or shack
This is a dwelling constructed of rough materials (cane, straw, reed or other). This type of dwelling is most common in rural areas.

Improvised dwelling
This is a dwelling constructed of discarded materials (cardboard, tin cans, plastic, canvas, wood or other) and which is inhabited on the date of the Census. This category also includes dwellings with walls of stone or cement blocks that are not cemented together, abandoned buses, boats, and motor homes/campers.

Premise used as a dwelling
This is a premise that was not originally intended to be inhabited by people but that is used for such on the date of the Census. It may be a cellar, garage, workshop or warehouse, a building in ruins, a partly destroyed building (by an earthquake, war or hurricane) or other.

Collective dwelling
This is a dwelling where a group of persons lives; they generally are not connected by family ties. Examples are hotels, boarding houses, motels, guest houses, hospitals, sanitariums or clinics, rehabilitation centers, asylums, orphanages, religious institutions or boarding schools, jails or juvenile detention facilities, bases or military installations.

In these dwellings only enumerate those people who fit the description of permanent resident.

Homeless area [sin vivienda]
This is a physical space that does not satisfy any of the definitions of dwelling provided above and which some people use to sleep in. Examples are parks, markets, sidewalks, bus stops and other open spaces.


Question 1. Type of dwelling

This question is obtained through observation. If you have a question as to how to indicate this information, refer to the previous definitions.

Mark just one option with an "X" according to the type of dwelling you observe.

If you marked option 8, 9 or 10, go to section II, question 3.

If you marked any of the options 11-19, go to section VI-B, "Total number of persons in collective dwellings and homeless areas".

There are some private dwellings with just one facade, but there may be other dwellings with an independent entrance on the same plot of land. They will need to be enumerated separately.

There are premises like cellars, workshops, warehouses, etc. in which one part may be set aside for lodging. If there are permanent residents, classify these premises as "Premise used as a dwelling" and gather the information about their characteristics.

In private dwellings in which the permanent residents are renters, fill out the form for each household and also for the household of the person who is responsible for the dwelling if he/she lives there.

Enumerate all collective dwellings in your section, except hospitals, sanitariums, jails and juvenile correctional facilities, bases or military installations.

In all collective dwellings investigate whether or not there is a private dwelling where the caretaker, manager, administrator or other person who prepares his/her food separately lives. If there is, enumerate him/her as a private dwelling.

If you don't find permanent residents in option 8, 9 or 10 of collective dwellings, fill out section I, "Geographic location of the dwelling" and section II, "Dwelling information" up to question 11. Exclude question 2, "Occupation status". In question 10 check option 2, "No". In question 11 write "00" and end the interview.

If you mark option 8, 9 or 10 and only the owner or another person who takes responsibility for the collective dwelling lives there, fill out the form with the characteristics of that household and its members.

If you mark option 8, 9 or 10 and only find permanent residents there, mark option 1, "Yes", for question 10. In question 11 write, "00" and then go to section VI-B, "Total number of persons in collective dwellings and homeless areas".

If you mark option 8, 9 or 10 and the owner or another person lives there, fill out a form for these households. If one or more guests who satisfy the definition of permanent resident live there, write them down on the additional form, going directly to section VI- B, "Total number of person in collective dwellings and homeless areas".

If there are no permanent residents in the collective dwellings in options 11-18, fill out section I, "Geographic location of the dwelling", and question 1 of section II, "Dwelling information", then go to section VI-B, "Total number of person in collective dwellings and homeless areas".

If you find an independent household in the collective dwellings in options 11-18, consider it as a collective dwelling and go to section VI-B, "Total number of persons in collective dwellings and homeless areas".

Question 1 Type of Dwelling

Mark a single box, consider a private house to be a structure, building or house that contains a single dwelling ( a chalet, a clay covered plant fiber (quincha) house etc.). It is a single dwelling even if the private house has one or more rooms used for different reasons other than lodging. Example: Sewing room, shop office, storage room, etc. The private house can be permanent (box 1), semi-permanent (box 2), or improvised (box 3).

[The instructions refer to a graphic of question 1 of the census form.]

a. Permanent Dwelling (box 1)
It is built with long lasting materials such as: concrete, concrete blocks, bricks, stone, wood, etc. Example: brick house. Include permanently attached mobile homes (carros-casas).


[To the left of the text is a picture of a permanent house]

[p. 54]

b) Semi-permanent dwelling (box 2)
It is built with materials of medium to short duration, such as quincha (clay covered plant fiber), adobe, cane, straw, palm leaves, bamboo, etc. Rustics dwellings, such as a shack, a hanging shack (ranchos colgados) or without walls, a quincha house, all typical of the interior of the country, are all considered semi-permanent dwellings.


[To the right of the text is a picture of a semi-permanent dwelling]

c. Improvised Dwelling (box 3)
For census purposes, an improvised dwelling is considered an independent dwelling of temporal nature, built with ill-suited materials, such as old wood, pieces of zinc, tin, cardboard, canvas, cloth, etc.
Generally these dwellings form part of the so-called "Emergency Areas".


[To the right of the text is a picture of an improvised dwelling]

Mark box 4 if it concerns an apartment, that is to say if the dwelling occupies part of a building composed of other dwellings and has private toilet facilities and bath. Include in this group dwellings like "duplexes", "condominiums", and semi-detached houses.
[To the right of the text is a picture of an apartment building.]

[p. 55]

Mark box 5 if the dwelling is meant for a room or rooms in a tenement building, or that is, a dwelling which occupies a part of a building composed of many dwellings and that does not have private toilet facilities or bath. The occupants of these dwellings share the use of toilet facilities and bath.

[To the right of the text is a picture of a tenement building.

Mark box 6 when you find persons who use a place or space not principally meant to be a dwelling, such as a doorway, vessel, granary, garage, stable, office, store, etc. as living quarters on the day of the census. With dwellings marked in box number 6, the rest of the questions about dwelling will not be asked and questions about the population of each of its occupants will be asked.

[To the right of the text is a picture of a person sitting in a box]

Mark box 7 when it concerns a collective dwelling (hotel, boarding house, hospital, etc.). There are special instructions for the enumeration of Collective Dwellings.
With dwellings marked in box 7, the rest of the questions about dwelling will not be asked and questions about the population of each of its occupants will be asked.

[To the right of the text is a picture of a hospital]

It is important to indicate that for the enumeration of the previously identified collective dwellings, such as hotels, boarding houses, boarding schools, hospitals, convents and other institutions meant for lodging groups (generally big) of individuals united by a public objective or a personal common interest and that appear on a list in the hands of the regional inspector, there exist special forms, enumerators and instructions.
It is recommended to the supervisors that on the day of the instructions, they consult their regional inspector about the procedure to follow and the form to use [p.56] in case there exists a collective dwelling not previously identified in their zone.

Question No. 1: Type of dwelling

The objective of this question is to determine the types of dwellings that exist in our country. Disregarding if it is inhabited or not, the dwelling will be subject of enumeration.
Identify by observation and using also the definitions described below. In case of doubt, make the questions that you consider will help you to clarify the type of dwelling. Mark only one circle.

Consider the following definitions:

1. Type of dwelling

Following the characteristics of the dwelling, they are classified in the following types:

1A. Private dwelling
As it was previously explained, a private dwelling is that used as a separate and independent home, by a family or another group of people, with or without family relationship, but that live together or as a family, or by a person that live by him or herself. One or more private households could inhabit a private dwelling.

a. Individual permanent (circle 01):
It is a dwelling constructed with long lasting materials, such as: cement block, brick, stone, concrete, wood, cane sticks with clay [quincha], adobe, among others. The dwelling could be finished or partially built. The townhouses or duplex units are considered as individual permanent dwellings.


[p. 45]

[There are example pictures of three individual permanent dwellings, one built from cement block, one made of wood, and the last one of cane sticks with clay [quincha].]

b. Individual semi-permanent (circle 02):
It is a dwelling built of materials of short to medium term duration, such as palm tree leaves, straw, cane sticks, among others.

[There is a picture of a house made of cane sticks and palm tree leaves]


[p. 46]

Improvised (circle 03):
It is a dwelling built with non-permanent intention and that generally is part of the so-called "spontaneous human settlements or emergency neighborhoods." The walls are made of materials such as old pieces of wood, zinc sheets, tin, cardboard, pieces of cloth, or plastic.

[There is a picture of an improvised dwelling]

Apartment (circle 04):
It is the living unit with water supply, sewage, and exclusive use bathroom. It is located in a building where there are two or more similar dwellings in the same floor. This type of dwelling can be found in a lower story construction or in a building of two or more floors.

[There is a picture of a multi-story building]

Room in a tenement house [casa de vecindad] (circle 05):
It is a dwelling constituted of one or more rooms in a rented house and that occupies part of a building that comprises several dwellings and, generally, doesn't have sewage or exclusive use bathroom, being these of common use for all households or dwellings.
[There is a picture of a room in a tenement]

Place not intended for habitation but that is used as a dwelling (circle 06):
It refers to any place or space not intended to be a dwelling, such as: hallway, a ship, a barn, a garage, a cowshed, an office, a store, schools, and businesses, among others.
Remember that what makes this place not intended for habitation object of the enumeration is that there is a private household residing in it.

[There is a picture of a store and a ship.]

Example: A teacher that occupies a room in the school.

If you circle this option (06), draw a diagonal line on the rest of the questions for section II, information on the dwelling, and continue filling out chapter III, information on the household.


[p. 47]

1B. Without a dwelling
Mark this circle when you find persons that do not have a place to live and sleep in the streets (indigents). The victims of a disaster are also included in this category, among others.

Victims of a disaster (circle 07):
Mark this circle when the persons suffered important damages; for example, loss of their dwellings and/or appliances, due to natural disasters (flooding, landslide, among others) or a fire.
Remember to draw a diagonal line on the rest of the questions of section II, information on the dwelling, and continue filling out section III, information on the household.

[There is a picture of three children victims of a disaster.]

Indigents (circle 08):
You will mark this circle when the persons at the census time are located in the streets, sidewalks, stands, under a bridge, in a park, among others, because they do not have enough resources to live.
Remember to draw a diagonal line on the rest of the questions of section II, information on the dwelling, and sections III and IV, and continue with section V, general characteristics of the population.

[There is a picture of a person sleeping in the street]

In the street, control points, seaport, airport (circle 09):
Mark this circle for persons that at the day of census are at control points to be enumerated or are in transit in our country.


[p. 48]

This last case refers to persons (foreigners) that at the census day are not in their dwelling nor in a collective dwelling and, due to travel reasons, are located in the national territory or sea, and thus are in transit.


Remember to draw a diagonal line on the rest of the questions of section II, information on the dwelling, and sections III and IV, and continue with section V, general characteristics of the population.

[There is a picture of persons in transit in an airport.]

If you marked any of the circles 08 (indigents) or 09 (in the street, control points, seaport, airport), remember to draw a diagonal line on the rest of the questions of section II, information on the dwelling, and sections III and IV, and continue filling out section V, general characteristics of the population.

1C. Collective dwelling

As it was previously explained, a collective dwelling is one that is used as a special housing place by a group of people, generally, without family relationship and that have life in common due to discipline, health, learning, religious life, work, or other reasons, such as reformatories, jails, criminal colonies, hospitals, sanatoriums, house for the elderly, hotels, etc. If you find collective dwellings in the segment that you are working on, this will be enumerated by a work group assigned for this purpose.

[There is a picture of a hospital]

Mark the corresponding circle, draw a diagonal line on the rest of the questions of section II, information on the dwelling, and sections III and IV, and continue with section V, general characteristics of the population.

[p. 49]

The blank spaces that appear in the lower right part of the question will be use later during the review and coding process at the office.

[There is a sample image of question 1 from the enumeration form.]

Example:

It could be occupied by a collective dwelling, which is the most frequent situation. A part of it could be used as housing for a private household.

[There is a picture of a hotel and a family and next to it the text below.]

The owner of the hotel lives permanently with his family in one of the penthouses of the hotel.

In this case, you must fill out a questionnaire for the private household, and regarding how to proceed in this situation you should go to Annex 3 (collective dwelling) of the enumerator manual.

Question No. 1: Type of Dwelling
Enumerator: Determine the type of dwelling, observing the private dwelling and taking into account the definitions. Circle the corresponding number.
Dwelling: For the purposes of the Census, it is any structurally separate and independent premise, made up of a room or group of rooms, meant for lodging one or more census households.
Also considered dwellings are those premises that, even though they are not meant for lodging people, are occupied as a place of residence by a census household at the time of conducting the Census.
"Separate" means that the dwelling is surrounded by walls, partitions, etc., and covered by a roof that allows one or more people to isolate themselves from others who form part of the community.
"Independent" means that the dwelling has direct access from the street by way of stairs, a hallway, corridor, etc., or by way of a road (in the case of rural dwellings). This means that the occupants can enter and leave their dwelling without passing through rooms occupied by other people outside of their household.
[There is a graphic representing question 1 in this section of the Enumeration Form.]
[p. 25]
The concepts of separation and independence are represented graphically below.
[There is a drawing of a floor plan for a group of rooms.]
According to this graphic, how many dwellings are there?
According to the definition, there are 2 dwellings. The dwelling of household "A" and that of household "B" meet the requirements of separation and independence, because they are surrounded by walls and their occupants don't pass through rooms occupied by other people in order to leave or enter the dwelling.
The space for household "C" is not considered a dwelling, because it is not independent. In order to enter or leave it, one has to pass through the dining room for household "B."
In conclusion, there are two dwellings, one that houses household "A" and the other which houses households "B" and "C."

Private Dwelling: It is a dwelling meant to serve as lodging for one or more census households. They are classified as:
[Each of the eight examples below is accompanied by a drawing which corresponds to the description.]
Independent house: Is one that has a direct exit to the street, road, etc., and makes up a single dwelling.
Apartment in a building: Is a dwelling that forms part of a building of two or more stories and which has access to public areas through a hallway, corridor, stairs, and/or elevator. Also classified in this group are dwellings on the first floor of the building that have direct access to the street.
Dwelling in a quinta: Is a dwelling that is part of a group of one- or two-story dwellings located along an open-air patio and that have independent water supplies and drainage.

[p. 26]
Dwelling in a tenement house: Is a dwelling that is part of a group of dwellings located along a corridor or patio and that, generally, share a water supply and drainage facilities.
This category includes dwellings located in allies, urbanized land, and on wasteland.
Shack or cabin: This is a dwelling that is generally located in rural areas, built with natural materials of local origin, such as: stone, cane, straw, stone with mud, wood, etc.
Improvised dwelling: This is any lodging or independent construction that is provisionally constructed with light materials (woven plant material, crushed cane), waste materials (cardboard, tin), or with stacked bricks or adobe. This type of dwelling is generally found at the edge of large cities, forming slums, human settlements, invasions, etc.
Premises not meant for human habitation: These are permanent premises that haven't been constructed, adapted, or transformed for human habitation, but that are being used as dwellings on the day of the Census. Included in this category are dwellings located in stables, granaries, factories, warehouses, commercial or office buildings, wineries, etc.
Not included in this category are buildings that, even though they weren't originally constructed to be used for human habitation, have been transformed or adapted to serve that purpose.
Other types: This category refers to premises that are not meant for human habitation nor situated in permanent buildings, but that are used as premises of habitation on the day of the Census.
Examples: cave or other natural refuge, mobile dwellings, camping tent, canopy, yacht, trailer, etc.

B1 Type of Building/House

The distribution of households by type of building supplies information about the available housing accommodation at the time of the census, patterns of living, and building trends. Such details are essential for planning future housing needs. For housing programmes, information is required on the number of households that need to be provided with housing. The number of households living in marginal housing units (commercial/-industrial/agricultural buildings used as living quarters such as barns, warehouses, mills, offices, etc., and other housing units such as boats, caves, etc. ) provides a first approximation of this element of housing needs.

Enter in the box provided the code applicable to the type of building occupied by the household. The types of building and their corresponding codes are as follows:

1 Single house - This is an independent structure intended for one household separated by open space or walls from all other structures. It includes the so-called "nipa hut" or a small house that is built as a more or less permanent housing unit or a "barong-barong" made of salvaged/makeshift/improvised materials.

2 Duplex - This is a structure intended for two house- holds, with complete living facilities for each. It is divided vertically or horizontally into two separate housing units which are usually identical.

3 Multi-unit residential (3 or more units) - This is a building intended for residential use only, consisting of 3 or more housing units. These houses may consist of one or more storeys in a row of three or more housing units, separated from each other by walls extending
from the ground to the roof or a building having floors to accommodate three or more housing units.

Examples:

a. Apartment Building - a structure usually of several stories, made up of three or more independent entrances from internal halls or courts. An apartment has one common entrance from the outside.

b. Accesoria - a one or two-floor structure divided into three or more housing units, each housing unit having its own separate entrance from the outside. Another name for accesoria is row house.

c. Residential Condominium -a high-rise building where the housing units are owned individually but the land and other areas and facilities are owned in common.

NOTE: A building that was originally constructed as a single house or duplex, but now partitioned into three or more rooms/groups of rooms (with separate entrance from a common hall or passage) without changing the outside structure or appearance, will be classified as a single house or a duplex, as the case may be.


4 Commercial/Industrial/Agricultural: office, factory, rice mill, barn, etc. - These buildings are not intended mainly for human habitation but used as living quarters of households at the time of the census.

A commercial building is a building built for transacting business or for rendering professional services, such as a store, office, warehouse, rice mill, etc.

An industrial building is a building built for processing, assembling, fabricating, finishing, manufacturing or packaging operations, such as a factory or a plant.

An agricultural building is any structure built for agricultural purposes, such as a barn, stable, poultry house, granary, etc.

5 Institutional living quarters: hotel, lodging house, dormitory, hospital, convent, school, penal institution, refugee camp, military camp, etc. - Hotels, motels, inns, boarding houses, dormitories, pensions and lodging houses fall within this category. This group comprises permanent structures which provide lodging and/or meals on fee basis. Institutional buildings are buildings intended for persons confined to receive medical, charitable or other care/treatment such as hospital and orphanages, for persons detained such as jails and penal colonies, and other buildings like convents, school dormitories, etc.

Also included in this category are camps which are defined sets of premises originally intended for the temporary accommodation of persons with common activities or interests like military camps, and other camps established for the housing of workers in mining, agriculture, public works or other types of enterprises.

6 Other housing units: natural shelter, boat, etc. - This refers to living quarters which are not intended for human habitation nor located in permanent buildings but which are nevertheless, used as living quarters at the time of the census. Caves, old railroad cars, other natural shelters and mobile housing units such as trailer, barge, cart, boat, etc., fall within this category.

NOTE: When a building is intended partly for residential purposes and partly for commercial or industrial purposes, report as residential (code 1, 2, or 3 ) if half or more of the building is residential. Thus, if the ground floor of a two- storey building is for business establishments and the second floor for housing, the building should be classified as residential. Likewise, if a one- storey building is divided into several units, and the front part of each unit is for business purposes and the back part is for living quarters, also report the building as residential.

11. It should be taken into account, that mobile units are rarely indicated in N-obw forms. If, during the pre-census round or during the census proper, the census enumerator encounters such an object, it should be indicated in the A (Az) form, as well as included in the N-obw form.

Provisional premises
12. Provisional premises are the objects which are not suitable to serve as habitable spaces, but still serve as shelters for people, especially after certain unforeseeable events, such as natural disasters. Those are, among others: all types of utility rooms, provisional shacks, barns, trailers, and attics, as well as shops, storage areas, garages, etc.

13. Basements and attics serving as provisional premises shall not be confused with standard dwellings located in basements and attics. It should be remembered that typically basement are storage-oriented areas without windows and rather not properly decorated, without proper floors or roughcasts. Attics are frequently the rooms that are directly covered with the roof of the building.

In the case of some modern buildings, in the designing stage there are certain spaces designed to serve as basements, drying rooms, washing rooms, etc. They may be even adjusted to occupational standards (direct lighting, proper roughcast on the walls, flooring, and sanitary devices installed). The only difference in their case is the height, as they tend to be a bit shorter, approximately 2.2 m. Such rooms shall not be considered provisional premises but rather a part of the dwelling or a dwelling proper (depending on whether or not there are other rooms in the building). 14. It should be remembered that a given provisional premises may not have been indicated in the N-obw form. If, during the pre-census round or during the census proper, the census enumerator encounters such an object, it should be indicated in the A (Az) form, as well as included in the N-obw form.

Question 1. Type of housing
[] 1 Dwelling
[] 2 Provisional housing or mobile housing (specify the kind)
[] Other: Collective housing (specify the name) ____
Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Dwelling
1. Dwelling is a separate set of rooms or one room with separate supportive spaces bordered with solid walls, regardless whether it is inhabited according to one or more ownership titles. Supportive spaces are: hall, vestibule, bathroom, toilet, pantry, porch etc. A dwelling is a place, which was built to serve occupational purposes. In some case it can be modified (adopted) to serve such purposes, for example a modified attic. Every dwelling should possess a separate entrance, leading from a hall, lounge, collective vestibule or from a yard, garden or street, which defines the separateness of a dwelling.

2. Parts of multi-room constructional housing cannot be considered as a dwelling -- separate rooms or spaces consisting of few rooms -- occupied by separate families or lonely individuals (not related or related), maintaining separate households, even in the case, when these families or individuals obtained separate administrative decisions concerning them (separate allocation deeds) and are paying a separate rent - if in such a housing at least one useful room is collective, such as kitchen, bathroom or toilet.

3. Single-family dwellings should be considered as a single dwelling. However, if there are more than one housing in a given dwelling and occupied rooms comply to separateness requirements, then they should be registered as separate housing. While specifying dwellings' separateness, one should not only take the issue whether households have separate rooms for their own disposal into consideration, but also the fact whether they don't use any room which is located in the dwelling together except the vestibule, such as kitchen, toilet, bathroom.

4. In rural dwellings, which are typical for traditional peasant's constructions (which can sometimes be found also in cities), which are occupied by two or more households, a rule should be applicable, saying that if one room (space), which is used by one household is not connected with vestibule or hall with a room of the second household, then it must be stated that these households occupy separate buildings.

5. Private buildings, in which some rooms are used to be rented to pensioners, tourists or bathers -- if they are not registered as hotels, pensions, resorts -- should be registered on general basis that is while registering the whole building, rooms for rent should be also included.
In buildings, which are registered as pensions, resorts and hotels, only rooms which are occupied by the building's owner and his family should be registered.

6. Following rules should be used by the enumerator even in the case of pre-census round --during which, using N-obw form -- number of dwellings to be registered is specified. However, if during the pre-census round the enumerator didn't enlist a dwelling on the N-obw form, it should be filled in during the census, as follows:

If there is a necessity to connect two dwellings (for example renting housing), which are parts of one building, to create one constructional building out of them, one A form should be used to register them, specifying important information for both dwellings. On the N-obw form, lines which were used to indicate two dwellings, which were connected, should be indicated by a bracket, and in the rubric number 15 'one constructional dwelling' should be written down.

If on the N-obw form the whole single-family housing was indicated, and the enumerator states that it consists of more dwellings, which are occupied by separate households, each of dwellings should be registered on a separate form. Discovered separate dwellings should be written down in the N-obw form, and in the rubric number 15, the 'dwelling in the building No…' should be written.
Provisional dwellings and mobile housing
1. Provisional dwelling is a dwelling which wasn't designed and is not prepared to serve occupational purposes, which, due to unexpected issues -- such as a natural disaster - is used by a family or a single person as a dwelling. It can be for example an attic, cellar, laundry, drying room, inventory space (stable, sheepfold, fold), agricultural space (barn, granary) or any other spaces, such as garage, storage or provisional shack, cell etc.

Occupied attic, which should be registered as a provisional dwelling, shouldn't be confused with a dwelling located on an attic. An attic is a space without ceiling, which is covered directly by the roof of the building. If an attic was prepared to be occupied permanently (it was equipped with plasters, ceilings, floors, windows, and technical appliances were connected), then it should be registered as a dwelling, not as a provisional dwelling.

Similarly, a dwelling which is located on the basement level of the building shouldn't be confused with an occupied ceiling. Typical basement is a room used for storage purposes, with small windows or without them, as well as without floors and plasters. In some new single-family buildings, such rooms are designed as serving for technical ceilings, laundries, drying rooms, etc., were prepared to serve occupational purposes (walls were plastered, floors were created, technical appliances were installed) and if they have a direct light source, then they should be considered as occupational spaces (or as a part of a dwelling), not as provisional housing.

2. Mobile housing is a place of occupation for a family or a single person, which is mainly connected with its working characteristic, life style or an unexpected situation. These mobile housing are mainly trailers, rail compartments, barges and ships.

It should be noted, that the N-obw form is used to register mobile housing rather occasionally. If they were observed by the enumerator during the pre-census round or during the census, they should be registered on the A form and on the N-obw form.

Collective housing
1. Collective housing is a hotel-like object renting a space in relation to performed work, studies, recovering, social help and monasteries. Collective housing are:

1) Dormitories, boarding schools, student houses, workers' hotels, children houses, educational points, newborn points, special institutes for seriously (permanently) ill people, institutes for blind people, educational points for handicapped people, social help houses, monsters, religious organizations, and other similar collective housing, in which people tend to stay for a longer period of time (from few month to few years).
2) Hotels (communal, touristic), guest houses, tourists' hostels, weekly nurseries, hospitals, sanatoriums and other collective housing, in which individuals tend to stay temporarily.

1. Kind of enumerated housing unit (page 01, question 8) [p. 21-22]

There are three kinds of housing units to be distinguished:

1. Dwelling
2. Occupied other living quarter
3. Collective living quarter.

1. Dwelling [p. 21]

1. Dwelling is a portion of space within a building, set of rooms or one room including auxiliary rooms that was built or adapted to be used for housing purposes and which is permanently separated (by permanent walls) from other spaces in the building and that can entered by a separate entrance form outside, from the staircase or a common hall.
Page 2
Auxiliary room is an anteroom, hall, bathroom, water closed, wardrobe, larder or other rooms situated inside a dwelling and used for housing or economic purposes of the inhabitants of the dwelling.

2. In case of the need to decide if a housing unit in which two or more households reside is a single dwelling or two separate dwellings an enumerator should follow a rule stating that: if in a housing unit (or a house) there is at least one room such as a kitchen, bathroom, WC shared by the household, such housing unit (or house) should be treated as one dwelling and should be enumerated on a single Questionnaire A. If none of the rooms listed above is shared -- the households occupy two separate dwellings.

3. Presbyteries, bishop curies etc. occupied by clerics (rectors, vicars, priests at the time of retirement etc.) that Questionnaire A household should be enumerated as dwellings. When reporting a size of the flat (number of rooms and the size in square meters) the rooms dedicated to serving the needs of the religious community (such as parish offices, lecture rooms etc.) should not be taken into account.

In case of two or more clerics living in the same presbytery, in which each of them occupies a separate set of rooms (bedroom, bathroom, anteroom etc.) the sets of rooms should be treated as separate dwelling and all the common rooms (kitchen, dining room etc.) should not be taken into account.
Please notice: The rooms occupied by monks or nuns living in a communion should be enumerated together even if their rooms are not in the same building but in a housing complex

2. Occupied other living quarter [p. 21-22]

1. Occupied other living quarter is:
A room situated in a building constructed for other (than housing) purpose but was adopted for housing, e.g. laundry, garage, attic, storage room or other (hotel room, classroom etc.),

Semi permanent room, constructed to be the housing for a group of people or a single person for a limited time-- usually several years, e.g. barrack or container -- dedicated usually to people on the area of natural disasters (floods, fires etc.) and treated as a temporary housing occupied until having a new regular dwelling,

Provisional housing, e.g. shed, hut etc.,

Mobile housing, e.g. construction site trailer, caravan, boat,

Those are used for housing (at the time of enumeration) due to the natural catastrophe or a lifestyle of the enumerated person or family.

2. [technical remarks - p. 22]

3. Collective housing [p. 22]

1. Collective housing is a set of rooms (living rooms and auxiliary rooms) located in one or more buildings belonging to one institution providing care, hotel or other services.
Page 3
In some collective housing people may live for longer time (from several months to several years) or for good e.g. dormitories, boarding schools, orphanages, care houses, monasteries etc. In some collective housing people stay shorter time e.g. hotels, hospitals, spas etc.

2. For every collective housing a kind of housing (position 8) should be indicated by:
writing in symbol 3. collective housing and giving a full name of the institution,

3. If two or more collective housing institutions are located in the same building (e. g. monastery and orphanage run by monastery) separate forms should be filled for every of the institution.

Question A - Type of living quarter

The option "On board population and diplomatic personnel" is reserved to the internal services of the NSI. Never mark this answer.

On a general way we will have to consider two major types of dwellings:
Familiar (conventional) - strictly to a familiar living;
Collective - open to a largest number of occupants that go over the familiar relationships.

As for dwelling, we understand every distinct and independent inhabited place, that by the way that it was constructed, reconstructed, enlarged, or transformed, is destined to be inhabited by persons and on the census moment it was not being used entirely for other purposes.

All places constructed for human habitation that on the census moment are being totally used for other purposes different from residential will not be counted as dwellings.

Familiar dwellings:
Conventional familiar dwelling: Division or set of divisions and their annexes that, by making part of a classical building with a permanent structure, or being structurally separated of that, and by the way that it was constructed, reconstructed, enlarged, or transformed is destined to be inhabited and on the census moment it was not being used entirely for other purposes. The conventional familiar dwelling must also have an independent entrance give access to the street or to a common area in the building.

Non-conventional dwelling: Its is a space that on the census moment is inhabited by individuals and that by the type of construction and its precarious condition, does not entirely satisfies the requirements to be a conventional familiar dwelling. We include in this type:

- Shacks;
- Rudimentary wooden houses;
- Mobile housing units;
- Dwellings in a permanent building not designed for habitation;
- Other inhabited places.

Collective dwelling: As collective living quarters we understand every place where a group of persons, usually big, live together, inhabiting one or more constructions, and usually sharing meals with a common objective or general interest and are normally managed by an external or internal entity to the group.

Question 6: Type of living quarter:

The family dwellings can be of the following two types:
Conventional family dwelling: Division or set of divisions and their annexes that make part of a classical building, i.e., a permanent structure or a structure that by the way it was constructed, reconstructed, enlarged or transformed is destined to be inhabited and on the census moment it was not being used entirely for other purposes.

Non-Conventional dwelling: Place that on the census moment is inhabited by individuals and that by the type and precarious way of the construction does not entirely satisfy the requirements to be a conventional family dwelling.

We include in this type: Shacks, rudimentary wood houses, mobile housing units, dwellings in a permanent building not designed for habitation and other inhabited places.

As collective living quarters we understand every place that by the way it was constructed or transformed is destined to shelter more than one household and on the census moment is occupied by one or more individuals being residents or by-passers.

We include in this type: hotel or similar, camps and institutions.
In this last type we can identify the following sub-types of dwellings according to their purposes:
Social support
Education
Health
Religious
Military
Prison
Work
Other types

Note: We only observe collective living quarters if they are functioning on the census moment, namely the hotels and similar as long as they are available to receive persons.

Question 3 - Type of building

Conventional building, in the sense that its structure and the materials used to build it are permanent.

Other type of inhabited construction should be chosen when in the presence of a shack or other improvised construction, tent, caravan, boat, natural shelter, etc.

Note: If the later building type is chosen the filling-in of this questionnaire is over.


Question 2 - Type of living quarter:

The observation of this variable will permit to classify the dwellings according to the nature of the group of individuals that are occupying them.
As Familiar dwelling we understand all dwellings that by the way they were constructed, or by the way it is being used, it is destined to shelter, usually, only one family, even knowing that several may leave in that space.
The familiar dwellings can be of the following two types:

Conventional familiar dwelling

Division or set of divisions and their annexes that by making part of a classical building, meaning on a permanent structure, or being structurally separated of that, and by the way that it was constructed, reconstructed, enlarged or transformed is destined to be inhabited and on the census moment it was not being used entirely for other purposes.
The conventional familiar dwelling must also have an independent entrance give access to the street or to a common area in the building.

Non-Conventional dwelling

Place that on the census moment it is inhabited by individuals and that by the precarious construction type does not entirely satisfies the requirements to be a conventional familiar dwelling.
We include in this type:
Shacks, rudimentary wooden houses, mobile housing units, dwellings in a permanent building not designed for habitation and other inhabited places.
As collective living quarters we understand every place that by the way it was constructed or transformed it is destined to shelter more than one family and on the census moment it is occupied by one or more individuals being residents or just presents and not residents.
In the collective dwellings we can include two types of Dwelling: Hotel or similar and Institutions.
In this last type we can identify the following sub-types of dwellings according to their purposes: Social support, Education, Health, Religious, Military, Prison, Work or other types.

Note: If you are in presence of a collective living quarter, identify its type and the filling-in of the questionnaire is over.

3.1 Household

The census is conducted household by household. The household is therefore the basic unit for the whole operation. It is organized around a given person, who is the head of the household, and constitutes the milieu in which the persons who are its components (members) live.

There are two types of households:

The private household
The institutional household
3.1.1. Private household

A private household is a set of persons, related by blood or not, who acknowledge the authority of a same person called the "head of household", and who share in majority their resources or expenses. They live most of the time under the same roof or in the same compound (enclos/urugo)

A person who lives alone constitutes a household, of which he/she is the head. Therefore, a household is not necessarily identical to a nuclear family, nor to a family in a common sense, even though this is the most frequent case.

Servants who are sharing the resources and the housing unit with the head of household are counted as members of his/her household.

Who is the head of household?
In general, the head of household is the person who manages the resources of the household, who is the older person, and who rules. A woman may be the head of the household.

For this census, it will be the person who is designated as such, and whose authority on the others is unquestionable.

[p.8]

3.1.2. Institutional household

An institutional household is a group of persons who live together in special conditions, and who are most often not related by blood.

Are classified among the institutional households:

  • Military personnel, who are lodged in military barracks, a quarter, or a military camp;
  • Groups of persons who live together and have the same occupation, such as the teachers, as well as other persons present in these households on the day of the census. This is also the case of boarding schools and students quarters (university, religious seminary);
  • Service personnel living in tourist buildings (hotels, inns, and so forth), as well as their guests;
  • Physicians, nurses, and health auxiliary personnel who live in a public or private hospital, as well as the inpatients who are present on the census reference night;
  • Religious communities and their members;
  • Penitentiary establishments (prisons);
  • All other persons living in such conditions mentioned above.

In fact, there is no head for an institutional household. However, the census enumerator is obliged to write down, at first, the person with the highest grade, or, when there are several or when they all are from the same grade, the oldest person.


Type of household (see identification, item 09)

The census enumerator does not write anything here.
The number of questionnaires used for the household
(see identification, item 10)


The number of questionnaires used in each household will be equal to the number of the last questionnaire used for the census of the household. Each questionnaire holds space for ten persons.

When the household accounts for more than ten persons, one uses an additional questionnaire (or more if needed). In this case, each questionnaire will have its own number, according to the number of questionnaires (already) filled in this household.

On item 10 of the identification part, two boxes are designed: _ / _

In the first box, one writes the number of the current questionnaire. In the second box, one writes the total number of questionnaires filled.

Examples:
1. In a household with nine members (9), only one questionnaire is filled.
On page one of the questionnaire, on item 10 of the identification section, one writes:
The last questionnaire number = 1
The total number of questionnaires used = 1 /_1_/_1_/

2. In a household with fifteen persons (15), one fills 2 questionnaires:
On the first questionnaire:
The last questionnaire number = 1
The total number of questionnaires used = 2 /_1_/_2_/

[p.25]

On the second questionnaire, on item 10 of the identification section, one will write:
The last questionnaire number = 2
The total number of questionnaires used = 2 /_2_/_2_/

3. In case of a household with thirty members (30), one writes three questionnaires:
On the first questionnaire, on item 10 of the identification section, one will write:
The last questionnaire number = 1
The total number of questionnaires used = 3 /_1_/_3_/

On the second questionnaire, on item 10 of the identification section, one will write:
The last questionnaire number = 2
The total number of questionnaires used = 3 /_2_/_3_/

On the third questionnaire, on item 10 of the identification section, one will write:
The last questionnaire number = 3
The total number of questionnaires used = 3 /_3_/_3_/

Remark:
When the census enumerator is finished with the census of a household, he/she must order the questionnaires the following way:

insert the second questionnaire inside the first;
insert the third questionnaire inside the second;
insert the fourth questionnaire inside the third, and so forth, so that the first questionnaire appears as the cover for all the others.

Housing unit
A unit of accommodation for a household, which may consist of one structure, or more than one structure, or part of a structure. (Examples of each are a house, a group of huts, and a flat.) It may be vacant, or occupied by one or more than one household.

A housing unit has a separate entrance from outside or from a common space, as in a block of flats.

Premises not intended for use as living quarters, but used for human habitation at the time of the census, such as a barn, warehouse, etc., are also classified as housing units for census purposes.

National Bureau: The term housing unit is a demographic term used when you need to be precise for certain purposes. It is contrasted with collective living quarters -- i.e. all living quarters are either housing units or collective living quarters.

Collective living quarters
Living quarters where certain facilities are shared by groups of individuals or households. They can be divided into: (a) hotels, motels, guest houses, etc. (b) workers hostels and student residences; and (c) institutions.

People living in residential hotels, boarding houses, and hostels will be enumerated using the household questionnaire (Questionnaire A). The inmates of institutions and tourist hotels will be enumerated using the questionnaire for individuals (Questionnaire B).


Institution
An institution is a particular type of collective living quarters, for people with a common characteristic who are living under a common regime. The following are institutions: hospital/clinic, frail care centre, childcare institution/ orphanage, home for the disabled, boarding school hostel, initiation school, convents and monasteries, defence force barracks, camps and ships, prison, refugee camps, shelters for the homeless.


Question H-23 a -- Type of housing unit

"Which type of dwelling or housing unit does this household occupy?"

Write the code in the boxes.

This question should be answered in relation to the housing unit for that household. So a household in a separate housing unit such as a backyard room will answer accordingly. This is another reason why domestic workers, for example, are captured on their own questionnaires.

[P. 58]

If this household lives in more than one dwelling (as captured in the next question), answer this question in relation to the main dwelling.


For example, some housing units consist of more than one dwelling, such as a brick house and one or more traditional huts, or a room in a converted hostel, plus a shack outside. In such cases give the type of the main dwelling.

Note that "more than one dwelling" refers only to dwellings on the same site, not dwellings or houses elsewhere.

(H-01) Type of main dwelling: Which of the following types best describes the main dwelling unit that this household occupies?
Record by observation, where possible, otherwise the enumerator should read out the different descriptions to the respondent.

If the household lives in more than one dwelling, mark the dwelling-type of the main dwelling. By main dwelling we mean the dwelling where most members of the household spend most of their time.

Note that a traditional dwelling is regarded as a dwelling that is built from traditional materials such as mud, thatch, grass, etc.

The question should be answered in relation to the dwelling unit for that household. So a household in a separate dwelling unit such as a backyard room will answer accordingly. This is another reason why domestic workers, for example, are captured on their own questionnaires.

Option 01 refers to a structure being on a separate stand or stands on its own, meaning that the stand has boundaries that separate it from the neighbours.

Option 02: Is for a traditional dwelling/hut/structure made of traditional materials.
Persons living in a room/bed in a hostel must be recorded under option 11.

Definition of household

40. For the purpose of enumeration, a difference is being made between private households which receive an envelope for private households and collective households which receive a person list for collective households.

What is a private household?

41. A private household consists of family members living together and all other persons living with them (e.g. maids, apprentices, lodgers, paying guests, permanent guests, and nurses).

42. Lodgers or sub-tenants do not form a separate household but belong to the host household; only in cases where they cannot be assigned to a household because they occupy rooms which belong to a business, doctor office, etc. are they to be treated as separate households.

43. Single persons and persons not related to each other form a household if they live in their own closed dwelling or single room which they have rented from the landlord and which is separate from his dwelling.

44. Examples of households

  • A family in a rented dwelling
  • A farmer with family members and hired persons in the farm or in annex buildings
  • A house owner and the lodgers who live in the same dwelling
  • Several persons who have rented and occupy jointly a dwelling
  • A single person who has rented a room directly from the house owner
  • A married couple who has rented part of a dwelling directly from the house owner and share a kitchen
  • Persons have rented basement or attic rooms which are separate from the dwelling of the owner
[p. 19]

45. Examples of persons who do not form a separate household:

  • Lodger/subtenant in the dwelling of the landlord
  • Tenant of an attic room which belongs to the dwelling of the landlord;
  • All those included in collective households.
What is a collective household?

46. Collective households are groups of persons who reside in hotels, boarding houses, care facilities, boarding schools, hospitals, company dormitories, etc.

47. Hotels, inns, boarding houses
Owners and managers of hotel, inns, boarding houses, hostels, etc form with their family and domestic staff their own private households. The same applies to staff members who have their own household. Those persons will be enumerated with the private household questionnaires and are not to be entered on the collective household list.
Other staff members together with the guests form a collective household. However, only if there are 3 or more persons to be listed is a collective household list to be used; otherwise they are added to the private household of the owner or manager.

48. Institutions and care facilities
For the purpose of the census, these include the following:
Hospitals, sanatoria, clinics, care facilities, asylums, home for the blinds or deaf, boarding schools, children homes, orphanages, poorhouses, old age homes, cloisters, prisons. Staff members living with their families in the institutions are enumerated as private households.

As a general rule, the questionnaires for the occupants are completed by the manager.

[p. 20]

49. Other collective households
That includes staff members that have common accommodation but do not own the house and cannot be assigned to a household, for example:

  • Four journeyman bakers accommodated in an apartment by the owner
  • Construction workers in barracks
  • Tourists in mass accommodations

If there is no owner or manager, the enumerator himself fills in the person list.

50. Military barracks and schools
Staff members living in the facilities having their own households are to be enumerated as private households. Soldiers and other military staff are to be enumerated at their home municipality.

A1 Household definitions

1. Private households
All persons living in the same dwelling (apartment or single family house) form a private household. Thus persons belonging to one family plus all other persons living in the same dwelling (such as maids, other domestic personnel, care children, sub-tenants, permanent guests, care givers) form one household. Persons living alone also form a household. A further criterion is the fact of a "closed" dwelling (apartment of house). The presence of a kitchen or a kitchenette is the characteristic for a private household (e.g. old age apartments, dwelling of the manager in a hotel).

2. Collective household
All households which are not private households are considered collective households.

Such households are hotels, pensions, boarding schools, workers dormitories, long term care homes.

The continuing pluralization of society and its new forms of households (e.g. smaller and smallest homes) represents a methodological problem for the census. Specifically, homes for caring for old and feeble persons cannot be distinguished clearly from the outside as "institutions".

To collect census data for persons who are registered in the population registers but do not have a physical addresses in the community, the federal statistical office has created a special category of collective households, so-called "aggregated" households [Sammelhaushalte]. For collection purposes, two types of aggregated households are distinguished:

persons which are registered but do not have a physical address in the community;
persons which are homeless and are present in the community.

A. Identification
This part contains the following:
  • Two spaces for regional [mkoa] code.
  • Two spaces for district [wilaya] code.
  • Three spaces for ward [kata] code.
  • Three spaces for enumeration area code.
  • Three spaces for writing household number.
  • Three spaces for writing questionnaires' number.

[p.22]
Codes to be written in the identification part are for that specific area only. All this will be provided in the enumeration area map (EA map) of your area and in the list of household heads (if available), also that of village/hamlet/street [kijiji / kitongoji / mtaa] chairmen. Therefore, you are supposed to transfer the codes from the map or list of household heads (if available), write and shade in the space provided.
Every household in your enumeration area must be given a different number, as follows:
  • Every private household must be given a number from 001 onwards. These numbers should be written and shaded in the space provided. The first private household to be enumerated will be numbered "001", the second "002", the third "003", and so on.
  • For collective households, the numbers should start from "951", the second number "952", the third number "953", and so on.

Questionnaire numbers will start from "001" onwards, depending on the number of people in the household.
Every household that you will list must start with a new questionnaire. If the household is large and needs more than one questionnaire, the second questionnaire will be numbered "002", the third "003", and so on. Once you start enumerating a new household you must start with a new questionnaire, which you will number "001".
For example, if you go to a household where 23 people slept in the night before the census day. Since only six people can be listed in a questionnaire, it will be necessary to fill four questionnaires. The first questionnaire will be numbered 001, the second 002, the third 003, and the fourth 004. When you go to the next household the first questionnaire you will use will have household number 002 and questionnaire number 001, not 005. If there is no collective household in your area, the household number of the last household will be the total number of households in that area.

3.12 Household:

Household refers to one person or many persons living in the same house. They seek for, consume, and utilize all facilities together for a living, regardless of whether they are relatives or not.

p. 19

(One house may compose of one or more than one households, and members of a household may reside in more than one house or more than one room, but they must be located in the same area or next door).

There are two types of households, the private household and the collective household.

3.12.1 Private Household:
"Private household" refers to the household which consisted of individuals living together. They may be, or may not be, relatives, but voluntarily live together.

Private household is divided into two types:

a) Individual household refers to a household which comprises an individual. S/he may be owner, tenure, resident, or house sitter, who is not a member of any household in the same house, or an individual living alone in a house. Example of the single household:
1. Mr.A rents a room of one family to live independently.
2. Mr.B lives alone in a house.

b) Family household refers to a household which consists of 2 or more persons living together in the same house, or part of the house. They seek for, consume, and utilize all facilities together for a living, regardless of whether they are relatives or not.

A relative family household may have any number of members. For example:
1) A household comprises a father, a mother, a child or children and servant(s).
2) A household comprises brothers and sisters, and elder brothers/sisters who take care, support and provide education for his/her younger brothers/sisters.

A non-relative family household must not have more than five members. For example: Mr.Dang lives with 4 friends. They are not relatives, but rent a house and share for living expenses and the rent.
3.12.2 Collective Household:
A household which composed of several people living together because of having certain rules or regulations which indicated that those people must live together, or needed to stay together for their own benefit.
There are two kinds of the collective household.

a) Instituted household: A household which comprises several people living together under certain rules and regulations which indicated that they must be living together, for example:
p. 20
1) The monks, novices, nuns, and adherents who live together in a monastery or temple.
2) Patients who stay in a hospital for over three-month period.

13. Type of household
There are two types of households: private household and collective household
13.1 Private household
Private household refers to a household that consists of one or several people living in the same house or construction structure. They seek, consume and utilize all facilities together, regardless of whether they are related or not. For a household where members are not related, there must be five members in that given household.


13.2 Collective Household
Collective household refers to a household that is composed of several people living together because of rules or regulations which indicate that they must live together, or because members saw it beneficial to live together.

Types of collective households

a) Instituted household
The instituted household is a household that is composed of several people living together under certain rules and regulations which indicate that they must live together.


b) Special household


[p. 31]

A special household is a household in which people live together in the same place for a specific purpose such as:

1) "Hostels", where people rent rooms, are special households. This includes both registered and nonregistered hostels. It does not include student dormitories in schools, colleges or universities. Hostels must have a signboard to indicate that they are hostels where people can rent a room.

2) "Laborer households" [is a location where] at least six people or more (not including the family or household of the owner) are permanently staying in their working place, factory, or any working place where there is no arrangement for them to live separately. For those laborers who live in a place where the factory or any other working place have arranged for them to live separately as an individual family (it may be separate room or a separate house) away from other laborers, their household is classified as a private household. In such places, there may be relatives or other persons living together.


Exceptions of other special households
1) In the case of a household with six persons or more, in which only one person shoulders all or part of the expense for a group of three related persons, counts as a private household.


2) In a household where six persons or more live together and at least four persons are related, count them as private household. Sharing of expenses is not a sufficient factor for including the household in this case.


e) Type of household:

[] 1 Private household
[] 2 Special household
[] 3 Instituted household

Section 2: Nature of the location
For the nature of the location where the census is being conducted, answer by putting an "X" into whichever box in this section is applicable. Absolutely refrain from marking more than one box. Definitions of some of the terms encountered in this section are explained below:
  • House: Structures, in which there are two flats (dwellings) at most, regardless of how many floors they consist of.
  • Apartment building: Structures in which there are three or more flats (dwellings), regardless of how many floors they consist of.
  • Squatter structure: A structure built without a license on a lot located on another person's or on public property (even if they have obtained a title grant document).
  • Places such as a tent, a [tree] hollow, a shack, a cave: Places external to a house, apartment, squatter structure where people in certain regions live.


Section 3: Questions pertaining to the household (1-10)
Fill out this section only for places exhibiting the characteristics of a household. Do not fill it out for military garrisons, military posts, hotels, hospitals, etc., and cross it out with an "X". In administering the census to people located in such places, it is to be done in such a way that 9 people are written up on every page of Section I, and by continuing on to the next page without leaving any gap in between, making use of as many questionnaires as needed.

A special enumerator will be assigned to places such as these for which the notation "Not to be visited" has been written on the "Census region building tables" (Reference C). The notation "Special census" is to be written onto the census notebooks filled out in places displayed below that are to be designated by the special enumerators as being subject to a special census. These places are the following:

  • Military, gendarme and police barracks, jails and associated establishments, as well as living quarters in military bases (including foreign bases) located in military zones into which entry is not permitted to civilian public servants.
  • All public and private (military and civilian) hospitals, sanatoria, maternity hospitals, health clinics, dispensaries, and similar establishments.
  • All public and private (military and civilian) boarding schools and student dormitories (those people present in non-boarding schools on census day, are to be written up by the enumerators assigned to the census regions to which [these schools] belong).
  • Prisons and penitentiaries (military and civil).
  • Places where people are on duty on census day.
  • Places not to be included in a census region:

  • Roadside bus stops or terminals, and vehicles traveling on the roadways,
  • Train and train stations,
  • Means of sea and air transportation and ports,

  • Places (factories and large workplaces where census day work was permitted) deemed by special census officers of the census committees as appropriate for having a census conducted.
  • Embassies, charges d'affaires, attaches, consulates.


Numbers in the "Census region building table" (Reference C) for the places cited in the above paragraphs must be notated with the words "Not to be visited" beside them. If the entry "Not to be visited" is not observed next to such places in the "Census region building table" (Reference C), a request to have the necessary correction made is to be submitted to the census or control officer committee.
However, people such as a school principal, chief physician, caretaker, [or] night watchman living permanently in a school, hospital and other similar institutions, are to be considered as independent households and are each to be written up on separate pages.
At the same time, for people in places that do not constitute households, this section is not to be filled out and is to be crossed out with an "X". The census for people in these sorts of places is to be written up in Section IV as an aggregate population, with 9 people to be written on every page, and then going on to subsequent pages as necessary without leaving any gaps between them.
For places that constitute households, fill out Section IV with one line per household member and write "Household head" on the first line.

Section III: Questions related to households and dwellings

Attention! Section III is to be filled out for places where a household [housing unit] is constituted.

Questions 1 to 12 in this section are to be asked of the household head or someone able to answer in his/her place.


The definitions of household and household head are provided below:

Household [housing unit]: Social entities made up of one or more persons, whether bound by kinship or not, living in the same dwelling or in a portion of the same dwelling, participating in the provision of service or management to the household, who make no distinctions among themselves in terms of their income or expenses.

A household may consist of one or more people.

Pursuant to the definition of household provided above:

Those, who despite being relatives, are living in separate dwellings,
Those, who despite being relatives and living in the same dwelling, do not contribute in providing services or to the management of the household, and those separating their income and expenses,


are considered to be a discrete household.

However, people living in the same house not sharing any kinship ties -- a student, a worker, etc. -- are to be considered as belonging to the same household. That person, from among these people declaring himself/herself to be the household head, or the one who is the oldest, or whoever is named in the rental contract of the dwelling they are living in, is to be regarded being the "Household head".

Household head: The household head is that person, from among members of the household who is the one generally responsible when it comes to the household's income and expenses and who is actually in charge of managing the household.

In places where a household is not constituted:


In the Census questionnaire; Section III: The section with questions related to household and dwelling, must be left blank, without fail.

Section III is not to be filled out for places such as a hotel, a motel, a hostel, a train, a boat, a bus, a train station, a terminal, a port, a hospital, a health clinic, a military post, a garrison, an officer's club, a boarding school, a dormitory, a nursing home, a child daycare facility, an orphanage, a jail, a reform school, and others (a factory, an official office, an embassy, etc.). For people located in such places, only the questions in Section IV "Questions related to individual characteristics" are to be asked. Section IV "Questions related to individual characteristics" is to be filled out separately for each individual.

Household living conditions

Answers to questions 1-7 of this unit are completed for every household permanently resident in the private house, part of private house, individual apartment, communal apartment (including temporarily absent).

For households who live in hostels, hotels, other dwellings (railway carriages, barges and other temporal dwellings that are not the traditional dwellings) and do not have other permanent place of residence as well as for those households who rent the dwelling (private house, part of private house, apartment, room) only answers to questions 1 and 4-7 of this unit are completed.
Answers to questions 1-7 of this unit are not completed for households consisting of persons temporarily living in the dwelling, homeless persons and persons living in institutional dwellings (i.e. for those who has a relevant mark on the front of the form 1.

Question 1 Dwelling type

The mark that corresponds to the one of the mentioned variant of response is written down.
Private house is marked in case all the house is occupied by one household regardless the form of ownership.

If the house is occupied by two or more households then part of private house should be marked to each of them.

If the house consists of two or more apartments then individual apartment or communal apartment is marked according to their occupation.

Individual apartment is a dwelling that furnished and used for permanent residence, consists of one or more rooms, is separated from other dwellings by load-bearing walls (or double partitions) and has independent exit to stairway, to general hall, general lobby or directly outside, to the yard in case one household is in the dwelling.

If there are more than one household in the apartment then communal apartment should be marked to each household (even if there is one personal account on apartment). This mark is also filled to those who live in barracks and central-corridor dwellings that are not hostels.

[p.14]

If a household occupies private house or individual apartment or only a part of house floor space (apartment) and leases the rest part of house (apartment) floor space then it is assumed that the household is in a private house or individual apartment.

If a household is in a hostel (regardless the type of building: apartment dwelling, central-corridor btw dwelling, barrack as well as regardless what part of the building the household occupies: room, part of room or only a bed) then hostel is marked. Buildings where all or most part of premises and useful space are designated and furnished to collective living in communal rooms of persons who mainly do not have relative relations but collectively use all kinds of amenities and equipment (restrooms, kitchens, bathrooms and shower rooms, sanitation facilities, etc.) are related to the hostel dwelling type.

Hotel is marked to households staying in hotels, motels, etc. and do not have another place of permanent residence.

Other dwelling is marked if a household stays in railway carriages, barges and the like.

Rented housing is marked to households who rent the dwelling (private house, apartment, room, etc.) owned by other persons.

78. Dwelling - It is every premises or building structurally separated and independent, that has been constructed, made, converted, or ready for means of permanent or temporary lodging of people such as any class of lodging, fixed or mobile, occupied as a place of boarding on the date of the census. Therefore, the dwelling can be:

a) A house, apartment, flat, room, or group of rooms, hut, etc. independent, meant to give lodging to a group of people or a single person;

b) A boat (yacht), vehicle, railroad car, truck, etc., any other class of boarding, (granary, servants' quarters), occupied as a place of lodging on the day of the census.


79. Private or family dwelling - It is one used or meant to be used as a separate and independent dwelling or house, for a family, or other group of people, with or without family ties, but who live together under common rules, or for a person who lives alone.

80. Collective dwelling or non-family group - It is one used or meant to be used as a place of lodging for a group of people between whom there exists no family ties and who in general live together for reasons such as discipline, health, education, military, or religious life, work or other reasons such as reformatories, barracks, hospitals, boarding schools, hotels, convents, boarding houses, nursing homes, worker camps, etc.

81. Particular cases
a) Dwellings with boarders. A family dwelling in which boarders are lodged (including also those who only pay for habitation) will continue to be considered a family if the total number of boarders is five or less, but if the number of boarders is six or more, the dwelling will be considered collective.

82. If in a collective dwelling, for example a sanatorium or a hospital, there exist one or more units of habitation in which the director or any other bureaucrat lives with family members, these units will be considered private dwellings.

b) Dwellings in buildings not especially meant to be for habitation.

83. Buildings exclusively meant for commercial, industrial, or service means, like stores, storages, factories, etc., will not be considered dwellings, unless an apartment or room occupied by the owner or guardian or superintendent etc. with or without family members exists in them. In this case, the part occupied by the person or people mentioned above will be considered a dwelling


Title II: Type of dwelling
114. Under this title is recorded information about buildings or places identified as dwellings, from the point of view of the following general characteristics:

a) Use (built for lodging or not) and effective use (used for inhabitation).
b) Relation of dwelling (private home or collective home).
c) Similar structural particularities (house, apartment, shack, etc.)


115. Considering these elements integral to the definition of "type of dwelling", under the subtitle "buildings meant to be a dwelling" the information is going to be registered by a sign ("X") in the corresponding box under one of the groups:

a) Private dwellings.
b) Collective dwellings.


And under the subtitle: "other buildings used as dwelling" the information will be registered in the line meant for it.

116. The relation of buildings meant to be family dwellings is meant to be, in almost every form, the different varieties of them within the national reality. As can be observed, both dwellings of the type that is predominant in urban zones (individual houses, apartments, etc.) as well as the type that is predominant in rural zones (shacks), have been specified, including clandestine types of dwellings or outside of the authorized requirements of construction, like dwellings or houses from waste material (making up shantytowns); mobile dwellings (cart, coach, boat, etc.), and others.

[p. 21]

117. For "collective dwellings", the same as for family, in a basically complete form, the buildings corresponding to the different types of institutions are mentioned.

118. With reference to "other buildings used as a dwelling", no enumeration is to be done; instead, proceed to the specific notation about those buildings that explains its status -- under construction, built, adapted or transformed for inhabitation -- these are used "de facto" as a place of lodging on the day of the census. This is the case, for example, of stables, granaries, garages, etc.

119. The following definitions will help to understand with exactness the notations of the case:

Family dwellings
a) Individual house - An "individual house" or "private house", or more commonly "house", is understood to be a building or construction that contains a single family dwelling. Therefore, chalets, bungalows, isolated houses, and in general any type of construction, whatever the style, which is by a street and constitutes the primary residence of private houses, should be written down as "individual house", "private house" or "house".

b) Apartment in an apartment building - It is a room or group of rooms within a building that constitutes a family dwelling, occupying only a part of the building. This building is understood to always have many units of family dwellings.

c) Apartment or room in a house - It is a room or group of rooms that, fulfilling the requirements of the definition of dwelling (see definition), are found within an "individual house".

d) Apartment or room in a workshop, school, factory, collective dwelling, etc. - It is a room or group of rooms that, fulfilling the requirements of the definition of dwelling, are found within a building or construction of a school, industrial workshop, factory, collective dwelling, etc., such as apartments or rooms meant for the use of superintendents, guards, directors, and bureaucrats of an institution, business, or cooperative.

e) Tenement - It is a room or reduced number of rooms that, among other similar ones, are located within a construction or building that has common sanitary services. Generally, a room constitutes a family dwelling.

f) House made of waste material - It is an improvised construction made from a base of materials of little or no value that have been used previously for other means (planks for drawers, tinplate for packages, quilts for bags, etc.) or from materials meant for construction but already used and deteriorated (decayed sheets of galvanized steel, broken sheets of asbestos-cement, etc.). By extension, in the group, constructions made with natural stone, bricks, concrete blocks, etc., stacked without mortar or mud that sometimes are torn apart due to the weather, are included. Also in this group, "aripucas" (type of rural dwellings) or precarious constructions formed by piles of bunches of straw, branches, etc., are included.

[p. 22]

g) Shack - It is a dwelling typical in rural areas formed by walls of clods of earth, mud (in any form: fajina [wood lathe and mud], chorizo [baked bricks], etc.), straw or cane. Generally its roof is straw, but it should be considered a shack even if it has another type of roof.

The floor is usually earth.

h) Cart, wagon, boat - They constitute a type of dwelling built on mobile elements with the goal of recreation or for convenience of work. Carts or "californias" (type of cart), in some rural regions are cars of four wheels, over which is placed an enclosed space -- a type of room with a roof and lateral parts forged from zinc. They are used by workers as nighttime refuges and for the storage of articles.

i) Other (tent, railroad station, etc.) - They correspond to a type of precarious dwelling of more or less transitory use or of private adaptation. Railroad station is understood to be the upper platform, initially meant for the use of passengers, streetcars, buses, or railroad coaches that, isolated or not from the tracks, have been immobilized in some state of being used for inhabitation.

120. Collective dwellings:

a) Hotel - It is a dwelling in which temporary or permanent lodging is given, with or without food.

b) Parador - a class of hotel (with restaurant and rooms), located along important routes or tourist spots.


Observation
121. The rest of the collective dwellings listed are not of any precise definition. It should be remembered only that, in any case of collective dwelling, one or more family dwellings can exist.

122. Other buildings used as dwelling - The respective specific notation of the name of the buildings that are used as dwellings (garage, granary, stable, etc.) on the day of the census should be made in spite of whether its intended use is another.

D. Types of dwellings

96. Private dwellings: Give special care to the precision we will give you for differentiating the types of private dwellings, which can lead to confusion.

House: It is a private dwelling with direct and exclusive entrance to the outside.
You will not have difficulties in registering in this category: chalets, bungalows, and isolated houses. In the urban zone, with compact buildings, there can be doubts in differentiating house and apartment.

Look at the previous figure: two two-story buildings are seen. In the first, you recognize without difficulty one house with two stories.

In the second there are two houses: observe that each house has its direct and exclusive entrance. Each one is a dwelling independent of the other.


[p. 31]

Apartment: It is a group of independent rooms that, within a building, constitute a single private dwelling. This building is always understood to be more than one of these private dwellings.
Each apartment always provides a bathroom.

The entrance to an apartment always comes from a corridor, hall or any other common space with one or more apartments.

100. At Tacuarembo Street No. 2528, you walk through a corridor that has four doors, entrances of other such dwellings, all of them with a bathroom. You will register each one of these dwellings as:

[Below the text is an unmarked chart]

[] 12 Apartment


[p. 32]

101. Look at the figure:

[Below the text is a picture of a building]

In spite of being a single building, you distinguish two houses and a group of apartments.

Two houses, since both have their own, independent entrance. The center entrance, common to many dwellings, is evidently, one for a group of apartments.


Apartment or room in school, workshop, office, etc.: It is a room or group of rooms that makes a private dwelling, well differentiated, within a building or place meant to be a school, workshop, office, storage place, factory, etc..
The space occupied for a dwelling of this type is, within the building, inferior to the space occupied for other activities. Everything should form part of the same building and the entrance of the dwelling is the same as the building.

On Uruguay Street No. 2863, you register a courthouse on the control sheet, guiding yourself by the façade. You enter the only access door and find that the caretaker and his spouse occupy two rooms of the first floor as a dwelling. You will register here:


[p. 33]

[On the top of the page is an unmarked chart]

[] 13 Apartment or room in school, workshop, office, etc.

104. In the case of the Rodríguez family, a room that opens to the street is used by a daughter as beauty salon. You will register this dwelling as:

[Below the text is an unmarked form]

[] 11 House

105. This dwelling is registered as "House" and not "Apartment or room in school, workshop, office, etc.", since the space occupied for beauty salon is a room, very inferior to what is meant for residential purposes (the rest of the house).


[p. 34]

It is the same case for doctors and dentists, for example, who have offices and waiting rooms in their dwelling.


Shack: It is any dwelling with walls made of mud.
The fundamental thing about this type of dwelling is that the walls are made of mud; the roof generally made of straw, can be made of zinc or another light material.

Many people wrongly call a shack a dwelling made of waste material, characteristic of the shantytowns and "pueblos de ratas".

In the outskirts of a city, you find two dwellings, the first, with walls made of material and a roof made of straw; the second, with walls of mud and a roof made of tin. Are any of these dwellings a shack? Do not worry about the roofs. The second dwelling is a shack, because it has walls made of mud.


Tenement house: It is any dwelling shared by six or more private homes, in which the use of sanitary service is common.
On Reconquista Street No. 1620 there exists a house with eight rooms, a kitchen and a bathroom. Each room is occupied by a private home, that is, the dwelling is shared by eight private homes. You will register this dwelling as:


[p. 35]

[On the top of the page is an unmarked chart]

[] 21 Tenement house


House made of waste material: It is a poor dwelling, made from a base of second hand material, like: tin, cardboard, planks of crates, pieces of panels, burlap, etc., of scarce or no value.
It is a dwelling typical of the so-called shantytowns or "pueblos de ratas", although they can also be found in any part of a city.


Trailer, wagon, tent, etc.: Two types of dwellings are registered here:
1. The dwellings of mobile type or built to be transported.
2. The provisionary dwellings, night watchmen on construction jobs, workers in highway administration, etc. generally of wood.


Dwelling in a building not meant for residential purposes:
When we define dwelling to you, we mean that any place where a person has spent the night before the "Day of the Census" should also be considered a dwelling.

It is so that a building or place, in which economic activities are done (agricultural and livestock, industrial, commercial or service industries), or built for these activities and not changed into dwelling, should be registered in this type of dwelling if someone slept in it the night before the "Day of the Census".


[p. 36]

Common examples are: basement or warehouse of a bar, where a bartender sleeps, the garage, where a shoe store is in the front and, behind a curtain the shoemaker sleeps, a stall or warehouse where families are lodged, the storage place of an agricultural and livestock establishment where a traveler spent the night, etc.


Other: Register here any other place where any person has spent the night the night before the "Day of the Census" and that, according to its criteria, you cannot register it in any other previous types.
Write down here the people who did not spend the night in any building the night before the "Day of the Census".


Collective dwellings: Collective dwelling is what is occupied by a Census collective home. Therefore, a hotel, a boarding house with six or more lodgers, a barracks, a hospital, a jail, a boarding school, etc., consist of collective dwellings.
116. You are registering a dwelling. In the room in the front live the Gómez family, tenants of the house, who tell you that the rest of the dwelling is occupied by seven lodgers.

Before registering this dwelling as a boarding house, you should make sure that these lodgers reside permanently and, furthermore, are provided meals.

In Piedras Street No. 1537, you find an old big house in whose front you read a sign that says "Family boarding house". The manager tells you that he occupies a room and sub-lets the remaining ones to ten lodgers, without providing them meals.

You will register this dwelling as _____
  • A tenement house: It is not a boarding house, since the service of food is not provided.

B. Type of dwelling and occupation
Remember the definition of dwelling that we have repeated for you:
Dwelling: It is any room or group of rooms and their dependencies that occupy a building or a part structurally separated from it and that, by the way in which they have been constructed or transformed, are meant to be inhabited by people and, on the Census date, were not used only for other purposes.

To be considered a dwelling, a group of rooms and dependencies should necessarily have at its disposal an independent and separate access.
  • Independent, means that people who inhabit it arrive at it without passing through rooms of other dwellings. Dwellings can have direct access to the street or also through halls or corridors or stairs of common use by the inhabitants of other dwellings.
  • Separate means that a dwelling is surrounded by walls that separate it from other dwellings.

The Census also considers as a dwelling any lodging fixed or mobile in which any person has spent the night the night before the day of the Census.

A building under construction is considered a dwelling when it has a finished roof and vertical enclosures even if it is not occupied. In the case of those that do not fulfill these conditions, but that -- at the moment of the Census -- a person spent the night there, should be considered a dwelling in the conditions referred to in the previous paragraph.

Fill in the corresponding box since being within a private dwelling or collective dwelling keeping in mind that:
  • Private dwelling: It is a dwelling that is occupied by one or more private households.
  • Private household: is constituted by a group of people who, with or without family ties, who live under the same roof and who -- at least for their meals -- depend on a common fund (they participate in a "common pot").
  • Collective dwelling: It is occupied by a collective household.
  • Collective household: It is made up by an "institutionalized population", that is, people who do not belong to private households. They include people, normally without family ties, who share the dwelling for work, medical attention, studies, military, religious, tourist, reasons, etc. It is understood to be people who inhabit military instillations, correctional and penal institutions, student residences, hotels, etc.


Question 6. Indicate the type of dwelling
Private dwelling
[] House
[] Apartment
[] Apartment or room in school, factory, etc.
[] Place not built for habitation
[] Mobile dwelling (tent, trailer, etc.)
[] Other

Collective dwelling
[] Hotel, time share, hostel, motel
[] Hospital, sanatorium
[] Nursing household
[] Student residences
[] Worker houses
[] Asylum
[] Other


[p. 16]

If within a collective dwelling there exist separated rooms for the administration or service personnel of the establishment where they live with their families, they will be registered separately as private dwellings.

In Question 6 you should indicate the type of dwelling.

Private dwellings can be:
"House": Permanent structure with direct entrance from the street, garden or terrace (chalet, interior house, etc.).

"Apartment": It is a group of rooms that -- within a building -- constitute a single private dwelling. This building is understood to be always more than one of these private dwellings. The entrance to an apartment is always from a corridor, hall or stairs or other common space with other apartments.

"Apartment or room in a school, factory, etc.": It is a room or group of them that makes up a private dwelling, but different that, within a building or placed meant for other not habitual uses (school, workshop, office, storage, factory, etc.). The space occupied by dwellings of this type is, within the building, inferior to that occupied by other activities. Everything should form part of the same building and the entrance of the dwelling is the same as the building.

"Place not built for habitation": When we define dwelling, we express that also all places where any person has spent the night, at least the night before the day of the Census, should be considered a dwelling. It is such that a building or place, in which economic activities are done (agricultural and livestock, industrial, commercial or service) or built for these activities and not turned into a dwelling, should be registered in this type of private dwelling if at least one person [slept there] the night before the day of the Census.
Common examples are: basement or deposit of a bar, where the bartender sleeps, a garage, where a shoe repairer works in front and sleeps behind a curtain, a stall or business where families are lodged, a stable in an agricultural or livestock establishment where a traveler spent the night, etc.

"Mobile dwelling" (tent, trailer, etc.) Two types of dwellings are registered here:

Dwellings of the mobile type, or built to be transported

Provisional: Dwellings, for night watchmen of works under construction, workers of highway administration etc. meant for lodging a private household of these workers. These are generally made of light materials meant to be transported to another place when the activity they are doing is finished.


"Other": Register here any other type of dwelling not included within the previous types.


Collective dwellings: They can be:
"Hotel, time share, hostel, motel": They are permanent buildings meant to provide lodging and room service (cleaning and linen service) -- whether they provide meals or not -- by payment.

"Hospital, sanatorium": It is a collective dwelling where sick people are lodged and attended to, getting diagnosis, curing and calming sicknesses, ailments, by means of medical presentations. Include both public and private hospitals and sanitariums.

"Residence of the elderly": It is a dwelling where people of an advanced age require aid in personal hygiene, feeding and medical control are lodged and offered care.

"Student residence": Dwelling that offers lodging in collective form to students.

"Worker house": It is a dwelling that lodges, in a collective form, personnel of agricultural and livestock establishments, generally separate and independent of the residential building of the owners.

"Asylum": It is an institution of a social type that lodges people who need care and guarding, who do not require permanent medical attention in the place.

"Other": This residual category is understood to be collective dwellings that do not fit any of the previous definitions cited. Example: campgrounds for highway administration, barracks, convents, jails, reformatories, etc.


Keep in mind, in a building in which you find a collective dwelling -- besides a collective household -- one or more private households can exist that can be a private dwelling. If this occurs, use separate questionnaires of dwellings, giving them different numbers. Example: an administrator of a hotel who lives there with his daughter, director of school, etc.

6.4 Private Dwellings and Collective Dwellings

A private dwelling is a dwelling constructed or designed to house one or more private households.

A private household is the collection of people with or without kinship relations that reside under the same roof, and that, at least for their alimentation, share a common source- they participate in a "common pot." A person that lives alone is also considered a private household.

A collective dwelling is the dwelling that houses or is designed to house a collective household.

A collective household is a collection of people generally not connected by kinship relations that share the dwelling because of work, medical attention, studies, military duties, religion, prison, etc.

If, within the collective dwelling, there are separated rooms in which the family regiment in charge of personal administration or establishment service resides, creating a private household, you must register them in a new private dwelling questionnaire. An example of this situation is when an owner of a hotel or elderly household lives there alongside his/her family.

In your DEP, the system displays the options of private or collective dwelling.

Private dwelling

  • House: individual and independent construction to house people, whose access is direct from the exterior.
  • Apartment: a dwelling to which one cannot arrive directly from the exterior, but rather it is necessary to travel by common places (lobby, corridor, hallway, etc.). In this category the following types of dwellings can be distinguished:
  • Multi-level Apartment Building: dwelling that matches the definition of an apartment and in addition, has more than one level or floor. So that, it can be distinguished between building with or without elevators since this characteristic is associated with different levels of comfort and value of the dwelling.
  • Single-level Apartment Building: dwelling that matches the definition of an apartment and is located in a building with only one level or floor.
[p. 65]
  • Apartment or Room in a Premises or Collective Dwelling: room or collection of rooms that configure a separate private dwelling inside a building or premises designed for other non-residential uses (school, workshop, office, factory). The space within the building occupied by the dwellings of this kind is smaller than that occupied by other activities. It should be part of the same building and the entrance to the dwelling should be unique. In this category the private dwelling within a collective dwelling (hotel, elderly home, etc.) are included.
  • Premises not intended for Housing: building that was constructed to develop economic activities (agricultural, industrial, commercial, or service-related) and was not transformed nor adopted to be housing, but is where at least one person dwells. This is distinguished from the previous case in that the physical space occupied by the people is not separated from the rest of the premises by stonework walls. Examples include: the basement or storage of a bar, a garage, a ditch, a storage building of an agricultural establishment, etc.
  • Mobile Dwelling (tent, mobile household, etc.): Dwelling of mobile type or built to be transported and at the moment of the census is inhabited. Examples of this kind of dwelling are: a trailer, a caravan, a mobile household, a boat or yacht, an automobile, a tent, etc. This category is selected when there are habitual residents inside.
  • Other Private Dwelling: This category is composed of the dwellings that cannot be classified according to the previous definitions. Nearly all the cases that present themselves are going to be covered by the previous categories such that this option will only be used in very exceptional cases.
Collective Dwelling
  • Hotel, Pension, or other Guesthouse: Permanent building designed to provide lodging and room service (cleaning and bed sheets), through payment. Food can be provided or not. The pensions are collective dwellings when the people that rent them receive linen service and room cleaning service. It is important to distinguish these between "tenement houses," which constitute a private dwelling with various private households, because in those linen and cleaning services are not provided.
  • Hospital, Sanitarium (with Boarding): building where sick people are lodged in order to receive a diagnostic, cure, or reduction of sickness and pain, through medical treatments. This includes hospitals and sanitariums, public as well as private.
[p. 66]
  • Elderly Residence: dwelling where people of advanced age are lodged and provided care since they require such help for their cleanliness, alimentation, and medical control.
  • Student Residence: dwelling that offers lodging to students, in a collective system.
  • Staff House: dwelling where the personnel of agricultural establishments are lodged. This is generally separate and independent from the building where the establishment owners reside.
  • Religious Boarding: dwelling designed for the residency of those who live together for religious reasons (convents, monasteries, priestly seminars, etc.).
  • Prison Establishment: building designed to house people that committed some kind of crime and are deprived of their freedom. This includes the prison centers for minors of the Uruguay Institute for Children and Adolescents (INAU).
[p. 67]
  • Foster home: dwelling where people that are in need of care and assistance but do not require medical attention stay, for example the homes of the INAU (Daily, Feminine Adolescent, Male Infants, etc.).
  • Military or police barracks: dwelling designed to give residency to military, police, or firemen personnel.
  • Other collective: This is composed of the collective dwellings that cannot be classified according to the previous definitions, for example the refugees of the Ministry of Social Development (MIDES), the rehabilitation centers (physical, integral, physiotherapy, or addictions) or the work camps (forestry, roads, etc.). The majority of the cases that are presented are going to be a part of the previous categories, so that this option will only be used in exceptional cases.

6.9. Type of dwelling (Q. 1).

According to the definition of a dwelling there are two large groups:

a) Family dwelling or private habitation unit.
b) Collective dwelling or collective habitation unit.

Family dwellings or private habitation units are made up of the following types or classifications:

01) House or quinta
A structure usually built to be occupied by one family. It can be separate or contiguous [p. 63] [to another structure or have a common wall. It may or may not have a part] meant for a workplace. This type of structure can contain more than one family dwelling at the time of the census.
