Description

GQTYPE identifies the type of group quarters -- collective dwellings --, which are broadly classified into institutional and other non-institutional types.

Institutions are a place of residence where people are subject to a common authority or bound by a common objective or personal interest. The definition encompasses correctional facilities, health institutions, retirement homes, orphanages, shelters (social welfare institutions), military or police establishments, boarding schools, and religious group dwellings.

Non-institutional group quarters comprise refugee and workers' camps (temporary accommodation), hotels, pensions, and all types of boarding or lodging houses. The "floating population" is included as a category within the non-institutional group quarters, when identified by the corresponding sample. This group refers to outdoor sleepers, homeless persons, travelers, and persons in ships, boats, or other mobile dwellings.

A more general classification of households between private and group quarters is available in GQ.

Comparability — General

The variable is not consistent across samples. The group quarters types available vary across countries. Some samples offer grouped categories for certain institutional or non-institutional group quarters. Grouped responses are classified according to the most common type within the category, or coded as "other", when a category is listing multiple collective household types.

The most frequently available categories in GQTYPE are correctional, educational, health, religious and social welfare institutions. Correctional institutions are generally comparable across samples. Health institutions may have varying levels of detail depending on the country; these could include mental health hospitals, hospices, or living quarters for persons with disabilities or chronic illnesses. Some samples combine educational or health institutions with religious institutions or orphanages. For further discussion, please refer to the country-specific comparability included below.

In the case of the homeless, many countries do not explicitly distinguish between a person living in a shelter (institution) or on the street (non-institutional). The homeless are classified as floating population (non-institutional) when there is no such distinction.

Some samples only differentiate between institutional or non-institutional group quarters, but not their specific types. These are not harmonized in GQTYPE, but the information is available in GQ.
