Question 1P. Type of dwelling
The code is to be marked, which corresponds to the prompt wanted.

"Detached house" is to be marked when one household occupies the whole one-flat house (irrespective of ownership).

If two or more households live in such a house, for each "part of detached house" is to be marked, even if the house is owned by one person.

If a house comprises two or more flats, then in accordance with the type of occupancy the items "separate flat" or "shared flat " are to be marked.

If one household occupies a separate flat, the item "separate flat" is to be marked.

The separate flat is a dwelling used and equipped for permanent residence, which consists of one or more rooms, is separated from other premises by main walls (or by double partitions), and has a separate exit to the staircase, common hall or passage or directly to the street or yard, and is occupied by one household.

If more than one household lives in a flat, the item "shared flat" is to be marked (even if only one customer account exists for the flat). The same item is to be marked for households living in the corridor-type houses, which are not hostels.

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

For households living in hostels (irrespective of the type of building: whether apartment, corridor, sector or hut type), the item "hostel" is to be marked.

"Boarding house for the aged and invalids, children's home, etc." is to be marked for people living in boarding houses (homes) for the aged, invalids and children-invalids, infant's and children's homes, boarding-schools for orphans and children without parental care, etc. (excluding the service staff).

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.

Chapter B. Main characteristics of the dwelling

Dwelling
A dwelling is any structurally separate and independent premises or enclosure that was built, converted, or set up for permanent or temporary housing of one or more people. A dwelling must have direct access from public spaces (plazas, streets, avenues, etc.) or from common spaces (hallways, patios, staircases) without passing through another dwelling.

1. Type of dwelling
The type of dwelling has three possible categories: private dwelling, collective dwelling, and no dwelling.

Private dwelling
This is a dwelling meant as permanent or temporary housing for a person or group of people, with or without family ties, who live as a family and typically share their meals.

Private dwellings are classified as follows:

- House/hut/pahuichi. This is a freestanding dwelling covered by a roof, with exterior walls, with direct access from public areas.
- Apartment. This is a dwelling located inside a building along with others of the same type, accessed from common spaces, hallways, corridors, or other direct access points.
[p. 11]
Generally, apartments have a water supply and their own private basic services.
- Individual room(s). Part of a house or tenement building occupied by a household at the time of the census. In general, individual rooms share a water supply and toilets with other households.
- Improvised dwelling. This is an enclosure or shelter adapted for use as a dwelling. Usually, improvised dwellings lack bathrooms and kitchens, and are built with scrap materials such as cardboard, tinplate, boards, plastics, and so on. Examples of improvised dwellings include chujilla huts, anaca tents, awnings, canopies, and railroad cars.
- Premises not intended as a dwelling. This category includes sheds, garages, barns, warehouses, caves, natural refuges, stalls, and so on, that are inhabited at the time of the census.
Collective dwelling
A collective dwelling is one intended as permanent or temporary housing for a group of people generally not related to each other, who live together for reasons of discipline, education, religion, health, work, or some other reason. Collective dwellings include hospitals, nursing homes, orphanages, boarding schools, jails, barracks, and hotels.

No dwelling
This category includes people in transit as well as people living on the street.

- People in transit are those who are passing through a census site and who have a different usual residence; examples include people who, on the night before Census Day, slept at bus terminals, border checkpoints, fairs, and similar places.
- People who live on the street are those who have no dwelling and wander the streets.

The entry for type of dwelling is obtained by observation, and indicated by marking the appropriate circle or bubble.

Brazil 2010 — source variable BR2010A_TYPUNIT — 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!
Abandoned buildings that were invaded and occupied by residents will also be considered as Improvised Occupied Private Households when the interview is conducted.
The types of Improvised Occupied Private Residence are:

  • Tents or lean-to shelters made of canvas, nylon or similar materials for lightweight construction and easily removable;
  • Inside of a store - a space not intended for housing or simply an accommodation (bed or mattress) within an establishment, and


[page 70]

  • Other (car, trailer, cave, barn, building under construction, warehouse etc.), any dependency whose purpose is not to provide a living space, but is serving as such.

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.

Type of dwelling

The characteristics that correspond to some types of dwellings mentioned in the questionnaire are the following:

A. Private Dwelling:

House: permanent building; separate and independent with a direct entrance from the street, garden, or lot (cottage, bungalow, hut, etc.)

Apartment: a dwelling 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.

Tenement dwelling: is a room or group of rooms that make up an independent dwelling. [p. 12] They are located along a common-use hallway and have shared facilities. Also considered within this alternative are buildings rented completely by rooms or groups of rooms and which have shared facilities.

Squatter settlement: 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 are 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.

Shack, rustic hut, cabin: is typically a rural building, separate or independent, made of light materials (clay with straw, reeds, sticks and mud, dried stone [pirca], etc.).

B. Collective Dwelling

Boardinghouse, Guesthouse: has the same structural characteristics as private dwellings.

Boardinghouses and guesthouses with a municipal license, regardless of the number of boarders, will always be included in this category.

Private dwellings with 6 or more boarders will also be included here.

If the dwelling has 5 boarders or fewer, the proper option within group A. Private Dwelling should be marked.

If the dwelling is found unoccupied and you have finished questions 1 and 2, end the interview.

If the dwelling is collective, complete only questions 1 and 2 of this section and continue on to

[1.] Indicate the type of dwelling:

Mr. Enumerator, in this question indicate, by filling in the corresponding circle, the type of dwelling in question. In order to help you we will specify the characteristics for some of the types of dwellings mentioned in the Census Questionnaire, which can be Private or Collective.

A. Private Dwelling

1. House: A permanent building with a direct entrance from the street, garden, or lot (cottage, duplex, hut, summerhouse, country house, etc.)

2. Apartment in a building: A dwelling located in a building with a separate entrance from a hallway, stairway, or other common space.

3. Rooms in an old house or 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.

Also considered within this alternative are buildings rented by rooms or groups of rooms and which have shared facilities.

[p. 13]

4. Improved shack, hut with a slanted roof [mediagua]: Is a semi-permanent building made of light material (wood). It is normally made up of one or more rooms, generally with a dirt or wood floor. The roof can have more than one slope and the toilet facilities (W.C.) generally are located outside the dwelling.

5. Shack, cabin or rustic hut: is typically a rural building, separate or independent, made of light materials (clay with straw, reeds, sticks and mud, dried stone [pirca], etc.).

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.

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.

[] 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.

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.

[Sections III, IV, and V]

Step 4: Through observation othe dwelling, register: type of dwelling, principal access to the dwelling, and occupancy condition of the dwelling.

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

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.]

(A) Register the I. Geographic Location of the dwelling, from number 1.1 to 1.7
(B) In identification of the dwelling and household, register numbers 1.9 and 1.12.
(C) Identify through observation and register the type of private dwelling.

(E) In the condition of occupancy of the dwelling, register x in 2 when it is occupied with the persons absent, 3 when it is unoccupied, or 4 when the dwelling is under construction.
(F) Register your information.


Important: Once you have followed the instructions to cases of dwellings with the people absent, unoccupied, and under construction, leave the rest of the questionnaire blank, stick the enumerated label on the dwelling and continue with the next dwelling.

Also people can enter and leave the mentioned without passing through another house, having direct access from the street, passage, path or passing through common areas such as patios, hallways, corridors or stairs.


4.2.1 Type of household
Type of household will be understood by the way in which each house is made. For the purpose of the census, they will be divided into two large groups: private and collective households

A) Single family [private] households
Single family households are places designed to be used as dwellings for one person or a group of people who live as a family. This household could be: house, apartment, room within a house, room in an inn, shack, an improvised house, a place not designed for human dwelling, other (mobile home, tent, refuge, etc.)

House:
This is a household with direct access to the street, alley or sidewalk, made with long-lasting materials and usually located in a structure commonly designed for the lodging of one family group. It can be found connected or separated with other household units and it has its own toilet, bathroom and kitchen. This household will be recorded as occupied or unoccupied at the time of the enumeration.


[pg. 13]

Apartment:
This is a household unit made of long-lasting materials that is part of a building of one or more floors, and that contains two or more dwellings. It has access to the street through a corridor, hallway, or stair. It offers an individual washroom, toilet and kitchen. It will be counted even if it is unoccupied.

Room in a house:
This is a dwelling that is part of a structure that is made with long-lasting materials, and that can have two or three dwelling areas; the bathroom, washroom and kitchen are shared between all the households in the building. Generally found in independent households that have been remodeled to allow for lodging for two or three different family groups. There may be street access through corridors, hallways or places considered common areas by occupants.

Room in a boarding house:
This is a dwelling that is part of a structure which has at minimum four living units. It is made with long-lasting materials and has a shared bathroom, washroom and kitchen for all dwellings in the inn/hotel. In general this would be a single room with street access through a yard, hallway or corridor.


[pg. 14]

Shack:
This is a dwelling made with bamboo, palm or nopal leaves, grass or other vegetation. Generally found in rural areas, in order to be enumerated it must be occupied at the time of the census, and as such unoccupied shacks or huts will not be enumerated.

Improvised dwelling:
Any dwelling made with waste materials: pieces of wood, old aluminum sheets, cardboard, etc., which doesn't meet building standards. To be enumerated it must be occupied at the time of the census. They are principally located in poorer communities of urban areas, and sometimes in rural areas. If abandoned, it will not be counted.

Places not designed for human habitation:
This is a building built with long-term materials that has not been renovated, adapted or transformed to be used as a dwelling, but at the time of the census is being used as such. This type of dwelling can occupy some or all of stables, workshops, offices, factories, warehouse, garage, etc.

Hotel:
This is any building commonly known as hotel which lodges people passing through; however, there are some people who live permanently in the hotel, who will be enumerated as residents, excepting those employees who have been assigned an apartment to live with their family, which will be considered an "apartment" in single family households, but if the place where they live is completely separated from the main building it will be enumerated as a "house". Both situations will be registered on separate ballots from the collective housing.

Hospital or clinic:
In this case the hospitals and clinics that have patients who have more than six months of hospitalization and the hospital or clinic has become their place of residence. If there are administrative personnel who live in the hospital center, alone or with their family in a unit within or outside of the hospital center, that will be considered a single family household.


[pg. 16]

Boarding house:
Dwellings will be classified as boarding houses if they have more than 5 boarders who are generally students, and if they are run by the owner of the dwelling, who provides food, cleaning services, and in some cases laundry services. If there are fewer than 5 boarders, [the dwelling] will be classified as a "house" or "apartment", as appropriate.

Homes are places where the elderly of one gender or another live permanently. The administrative personnel, who live in a separate unit, whether alone or with their family, will be enumerated as a single family household.

Guest house:
This is a building commonly known as a guest house which lodges people who generally are passing through; however, there are some people who live permanently in this place who will be enumerated. If the owner and other employees live in the house, alone or with their family, they will be enumerated as residents of a single family household.

Prison:
This is the place where there are prisoners and, for the purpose of the census, only those sentenced to a period six months or longer will be enumerated; this also includes service personnel who are lodged collectively there. Each one of these groups will be enumerated on separate ballots, but within the same collective housing.

[] 2 Residential and establishment
Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image
Column 12 Purpose of the Housing Unit

For the housing unit registered in columns 9 - 11 its purpose as of the census date will be entered in this column. Type of purposes and their codes are given as follows.

1 = Residential only
2 = Residential and establishment
3 = Hotel
4 = Hostel
5 = Other collective
6 = Other establishment only
7 = Unoccupied
8 = Under construction

Definition of housing units by purpose and how to register them are given below.

1. Residential only: "Residential only" is entered in column 12 and "1" in card column 28 if the listed housing unit serves as residence of members of conventional households on the census date.
2. Residential and establishment: "Residential and establishment" is entered in column 12 and "2" in card column 28 if the listed housing unit serves as partly residential of members of conventional households and partly as establishment on the census date. Definition of establishment is given below. Note that Residential and Establishment does not include hotel, hostel and other collective.
1. Hotel: "Hotel" is entered in column 12 and "3" in card column 28 if the purpose the listed housing unit is only for hotel on the census date. Note that those living in the hotel as a household are enumerated as hotel guests not as conventional households.

Column 44: What is the purpose of the housing unit?

If the purpose of the housing unit is only for residential it is said for residential. However if it is partly residential and partly establishment it is semi-residential semi-establishment. For example if the people use their residence as a shop or for selling tella (local drink), or for weaving, etc. then the purpose of the house is said to be residential and establishment.

With regard to the purpose of the housing unit, the correct code from the following list of codes will be circled and entered in card column 32.

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.

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.

[A drawing of a private dwelling and a collective dwellings are reproduced here.]

This manual and this census refer only to the homeless population. There is no categorization for type of premise.

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.

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.

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'.

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.

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

Section VI - Households

HH02 Household type:
Shade the appropriate box.
The term household type as used in the Housing Census questionnaire is not strictly a concept to be defined in terms of the inter-relationships between household members. It is used merely to categorize the Housing Census data on households and housing units in such a way as to ensure a proper and complete enumeration of all persons at the Population Census. Households are to be categorized in the following types:

Single
A household is considered as single when all its members occupy a single housing unit in one and the same building.

Combined
When a household occupies two (or more) buildings, that is when some members of the household occupy a housing unit in a main building whilst one or more members occupy another building or buildings, then the term "combined" is used to describe the household type for the housing unit in the main building. The main building is not necessarily the bigger building: it is the one where the household carries most of its activities, and in particular, where meals are taken in common. The other building(s) can be either detached room(s) or buildings containing housing units.

Part of household
This term is used to describe the household type for the detached room(s) or the secondary building(s).

Institutional
The term institutional household includes all the inmates of an institution such as a hospital, home/convent, infirmary, orphanage, prison, etc. It excludes staff members and their households who may be residing on the premises: these should be enumerated separately as private households.
[p. 57]
Hotel population
This question refers to all guests in a hotel, guesthouse or tourist residence. It excludes any hotel employees or managers and their households who may be residing on the premises.

Collective quarters
The term "collective quarters" is used to identify a group of foreign workers living together in one or more apartments, lodgings, temporary shelters, etc. Such quarters may have certain more or less common facilities, such as cooking and toilet installations, baths, dormitories, which are shared by the whole group.

Homeless
This refers to persons who do not have a shelter. They carry their few possessions with them, sleeping under shop verandahs, in doorways, in the streets or in any other space on a more or less random basis. If, as sometimes happens, a homeless person refuses to give information or cannot be awakened, it will still be necessary to enumerate that person. What can be done in such cases is to complete a questionnaire that indicates location details and the person?s gender. The address to be reported is where the homeless person usually spends most of his nights.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

212. Types of Housing. All residential apartment and flats shall be divided into the following 4 categories: "a whole flat"; "a part of the whole flat"; "a public flat" and "a dormitory".

[p. 27]

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.

c. A Public Flats. A flat designed for accommodating workers or employees of factories or economic entities or other organizations shall be considered as to be "a public flat".

d. Dormitories for Students or Pupils. A flat designed for accommodating students of Universities or Institutes or Colleges for Vocation Training as well as school pupils shall be considered to be "dormitory".

E1. Type of dwelling:

Observe the dwelling and classify it correctly. If you happen to have any questions, ask it to the respondent.

Remember that there can be only one response. It is either Private or Collective, or yet HOMELESS for persons who are enumerated in the streets, under the bridges, etc. If the dwelling is "Collective", finish the interview. Thank the persons for their collaboration and go on to the next household or living quarter.

Private Dwellings are those which are used to house the households and can be a: House, Flat/apartment, Hut, Precarious Dwelling (shack, houses made of tin or cardboard, etc.), Mixed dwelling, Basic dwelling, Part of a commercial building, or other.

In the institutional dwellings such as schools, prisons, barracks, hotels, etc., the independent dwellings should be considered as private dwellings.

Be aware of the following definitions for private dwellings:

House: refers to a single-family dwelling unit that has (a) bedroom, bathroom, kitchen inside the dwelling, and that was built using durable materials (cement blocks, bricks, zinc plates/asbestos, concrete slab, and tiles). It may have 1 or more stories;

Flat/Apartment: refers to a dwelling unit that has (a) bedroom(s), bathroom, and kitchen, belongs to a multifamily dwelling unit, with 1 or more stories, and is constituted of a block or a group of blocks;

Hut: refers to a dwelling whose predominant material in the construction comes from vegetal origin (grass, straw, palm tree, culm, bamboo, reed, adobe, weaved sticks, etc.);

Precarious dwelling: refers to dwellings built with precarious materials such as paper, canvas, cardboard, tins, bark, etc.) and adobe;

Mixed dwelling: refers to a dwelling built with durable materials cement blocks, bricks, zinc plates/asbestos, concrete slab and tiles), material of vegetal origin (grass, straw, palm tree, culm, bamboo, reed, adobe, weaved sticks, etc.) and adobe;

Basic dwelling (train house): refers to a dwelling unit that has bedrooms only, and not bathrooms and/or kitchen, built with durable materials (cement blocks, bricks, zinc plates/asbestos, concrete slab and tiles). 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;

Other: refers to all types of dwelling not included in the previous categories. Examples: tents, caravans, boats, etc.

Collective dwellings or Living Quarters are institutions occupied by persons whose relationship is limited to the administrative subordination and obedience to the rules that are applied there.

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".

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.

[p. 25]
Private Dwelling: This is a dwelling intended for one or more persons who are related by blood or, if not related by blood, who live as a family. Among types of private dwellings are the following:
[Each of the 8 categories below is accompanied by a drawing which corresponds to the description.]
1. Detached House. A detached house is a building which has an exit leading directly to the street, road, etc. and constitutes a single dwelling.
2. Apartment in a Building. An apartment in a building is part of a building of 2 or more floors and has access to public spaces through a hallway, open-air passageway [corredor], stairway, and/or elevator. It includes dwellings on the first floor of the building with direct access to the street.
3. Attached Independent Units [vivienda en quinta]. These units are part of a complex [conjunto de viviendas] of one or two floors. The units are grouped around an open patio and have independent water and sewer service.
4. Dwelling in a tenement [vivienda en casa de vecindad, solar], units grouped along a blind alley [callejón], or shanties built on a vacant lot [corralón]. A tenement is made up of buildings grouped around a patio or open-air passage. The buildings generally have shared water and/or sewer service

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.

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.

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.

3.11 Household
A household is one person or many persons living in the same house, and these persons together seek for, consume, and utilize all facilities for living, regardless of whether they are relatives or not.

There are two types of households: private households and collective households.


3.11.1 Private household refers to a household that lives in a house. Private households can be divided into two categories:

a) Individual household refers to a household that has one person who may be the owner, tenure, resident, or house guard. S/he is not a member of any other household that may live in the same house.
b) Multiple-individual household refers to a household that has 2 persons or more living together in the same house, and they seek for and utilize all facilities for living together, regardless of whether they are relatives or not.


3.12.2 Collective household refers to a household that consists of several people living together because of certain rules or regulations indicating that these people must live together, or need to stay together for their own benefit. These people may or may not eat together.


There are two types of collective households.

1. Institution household
These include:

a. Monks, novices, nuns, and adherents who live in a monastery or temple.
b. Patients who stay in a hospital for more than three months, physicians and nurses who do not live in separated houses.
c. Boarding pupils and teachers who stay in the boarding school.
d. People who receive assistance in a foster home or shelter, and the care-takers who do not live at a separate place.
e. Prisoners in a prison or jail.
f. Soldiers or policemen who stay in the camp or barracks, including cadet and police cadet.


2. Other collective household
These include:

a. People who regularly rent a room in a hotel.
b. People who rent a room in a dormitory.
c. Six or more laborers who live together in a factory that is their working place, and the owner of the factory provides food for them to eat together.


For the households of directors, managers and staff of the collective households: if they stay in the separate houses, their households are considered private households. Examples are households of the staffs who work in prisons or temples, households of hospital directors, households of hotel managers, households of the janitors in the student dormitory, etc.

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.
3) Boarding pupils and also teachers who are staying in the boarding school, medical student dormitory, nursing student dormitory.
4) Those who seek relieve or help assistance in the relieve institute or center and also include the care taker at such institute who is not staying at the separate housing.
5) Prisoners at the prison or jail.
6) Soldier or policeman who stay in the camp or barracks including cadet and police cadet.

b) Special household : The special household is the household at which people live together in the same place for their own benefit such as:
1) People who regularly or temporarily rent and stay in a room in a hotel for more than 3 months.
2) People rent and stay in a dormitory.
3) Laborers of at least 6 people or more who are permanently stay in their working place or factory where their working place or factory have arranged for them to live together.
4) Six or more people live together, but they are not relatives.
The households of director, managers, and staff of the collective household who stay at the separate housing in a private household e.g., jail, warder?s household, Buddha followers, owners, managers, hospital directors, and hotel managers.

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

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.

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.

1.1. Type of dwelling:

A) Family [dwelling]

Every structure meant to be the shelter for one or more persons, related or not, who make up one or more households.

Unoccupied dwellings, those under construction, or dwellings for occasional use at the time of enumeration are also registered in the census questionnaire but only the type of dwelling is investigated. On the other hand, buildings initially constructed as family dwellings but that, at the time of enumeration, are used exclusively for other purposes (offices, workshops, factories, etc.) are not included.

In spite of not meeting the strict definition, those places of abode that were not initially built for residential use but that are used for that purpose at the moment of enumeration are also considered to be family dwellings. Such is the case of refuges used as the consequence of natural disasters, the spaces under an overpass, areas and other spaces whose original use is different from that of a dwelling but are also used for residential purposes; e.g. commercial buildings, factories, workshops, or garages, etc.

The different types [of family dwellings] are listed below:
-- Mansion: A building used as a family dwelling constructed with luxury materials, such as: plastered brick or block, concrete or "machihembrado" [mortise and tenon joint] in the walls; "platabanda" [flat reinforced concrete roof], tile, wood (mahogany, oak) in the roof; marble, tile, granite, parquet in the floors. Mansions have extensive gardens and are very well maintained in front of, behind, and to the sides of the building. They have ample recreational and family use space.

-- Quinta or "casaquinta" [house with yard/garden]: A building used as a family dwelling constructed of plastered brick or block, concrete or sawn wood in the walls; reinforced concrete, tile, or asbestos in the roof; tile, granite, and similar materials in the floors. It has a garden in front.

-- House: A building used as a family dwelling constructed with materials such as: plastered or unplastered block or brick, concrete, sawn wood, adobe, plastered mud or stick and mud in the walls; reinforced concrete, tile, asbestos, or metal sheets in the roof; tile, granite and similar, or cement in the floor. Included here are traditional houses of mud and tile, houses built with

[p. 28]
modern materials, "la vivienda rural de Mariología", or the houses constructed by the "INAVI" [Instituto Nacional de la Vivienda -- National Dwelling Institute], other regional or municipal institutes and neighborhood houses.

-- Apartment in building: Space used as a family dwelling that forms part of the structure of a building and has access from a common area of circulation.

-- Apartment in quinta, "casaquinta", or house: Space that forms part of another dwelling and has exclusive kitchen appliances and toilet services. Has access that is independent or through a common area of circulation.

-- Tenement: Structure that has various rooms or quarters used as family dwellings, where toilet services and water storage are outside of the rooms. Also have internal common areas.

-- Rancho [hut/shack]: Building used as a family dwelling made of waste/discarded materials such as boards, cardboard, "caña" (cane) and similar.

-- Refuge: Building converted to house persons or families who have had to abandon their dwellings before the occurrence of natural phenomena, war, etc.

-- Other type of dwelling: Structure not built for human habitation that, at the time of enumeration, is found to be temporarily or permanently inhabited; such as: workplaces, storage sheds, trailers, vessels, caves, tents, or other shelters.


B) Collective

Building or group of buildings meant to be the place of abode for a group of unrelated persons who usually live together for reasons of health, education, religion, discipline, work, or other causes.

For the purposes of the census, boarding houses, student residences, and hotels where people live permanently, institutional collective dwellings, prisons, bases, welfare institutions, convents, worker residences, hospitals, etc., and other analogous establishments are included in this category.

When family dwellings, as defined above, are found within a collective, they are enumerated separately, as family dwellings. This may be the case of administrative, managing, or service personnel of the collective.

Collective dwellings can be located in:
-- Hotels, motels, boarding houses: Family boarding houses are also included.

-- Student residences.

-- Educational and religious institutions: This comprises colleges and high schools with residents, farm schools, military schools, convents, seminaries, religious congregations.

-- Long-term care or psychiatric hospitals: This includes asylums and psychiatric wards, sanatoriums for the mentally ill, tuberculosis hospitals, hospitals, clinics, and sanatoriums

[p. 29]
for long-term care of the chronically ill, general hospitals and clinics, medical rehabilitation centers.

-- Homes for the disabled and welfare institutions ["asilos"]: This includes homeless shelters, homes and schools for the deaf and mute, homes for the elderly, homes and schools for other disabled persons.

-- Other assistance institutions for children, youth, or adults: This includes homes, workshops, immediate care centers, intensive care centers, children's centers, nurseries, kindergartens, orphanages, and other unspecified institutions.

-- Penal institutions: This includes jails, penitentiaries, prisons, penal colonies, and judicial reformatories.

-- Military institutions: Bases, encampments, garrisons, air bases, naval bases, commands, military positions, military farms.

-- Other type of collective: This includes vessels, worker's camps, brothels, and other unspecified collectives.

The Enumeration Area

1. You as an enumerator will be assigned an enumeration area in which you will do the enumeration work for the Census. Your supervisor will assign this area to you and will also provide you with a map or a sketch showing boundaries of your enumeration area and explain major features of this area in order for you to properly identify the boundaries.

2. Your supervisor will take you around your enumeration area and instruct you with regard to the order in which you will carry out the enumeration. He will specify the order in which the villages should be visited in the rural areas or the streets to be covered in the urban areas. For you to cover your area in an orderly manner you must follow these instructions carefully.

3. Since the co-operation of the people is an essential factor in the success of the Census, your supervisor will introduce you to the local, traditional and Party leaders and other influential persons in the area to solicit their co-operation.
Identification Particulars on Main (Population and Housing) Questionnaire CPHA9001.

Province: (Item 1)

District: (Item 2)
5. Write the name of the district you are operating in in the space provided, then enter the code, given to you by your supervisor, as it appears in Appendix 1 in boxes 2 and 3.

CSA (Census Supervisory Area): (Item 3)
6. Your supervisor will give you the number of the CSA in which your work area is located. Enter the number in boxes 4 - 6.

Rural / Urban: (Item 4)
7. Write Urban or Rural in the space provided, depending on the area in which you are operating. You will just transfer this information from the map you are using. Enter code 1 for rural or 2 for urban in box 7.

8. This is the area allocated to you for enumeration. Your supervisor will give you your SEA number. Enter the number in box 8 . Enter the check digit given to you in box 9.

Census Building Number (CBN): (Item 6)
9. Within your enumeration area you will give a unique serial number to each building as you continue to enumerate. This number will run serially in each enumerator's area. The number will be in three digits starting with 001, followed by 002, 003 and so on. No two buildings in your enumeration area will have the same 'Census Building Number'. This number will be different from other types of numbers the building may already have, such as house number, plot number, stand number, flat number, etc. The idea is to make sure that all the buildings, and thus housing units, in your area have been covered. This will help you, your supervisor, and anybody else who will be interested in checking on your progress and completeness of coverage. Enter the number in boxes 10 - 12.

Housing Unit Number (HUN) (Item 7)
10. Each housing unit will be given a house number within the building. This number will be in two digits. The first housing unit within any particular building should be given number 01, the second one 02, and so on. Structures not intended for habitation (see para. 36) but actually being used as living quarters at the time of the Census are to be allocated appropriate house numbers.

Examples:

i. Census Building Number 032 has three housing units (houses); these will be numbered 01, 02 and 03.
ii. Census Building Number 033 has only one housing unit; this will be numbered 01.
iii. Census building number 034 has two housing units; these will be numbered 01, 02.
iv. In case of a building where there is no housing unit, check mark x ([X]) (box 4 under interview status) against non-residential.

Remember to give it a Census Building Number. Enter the house number in boxes 13 and 14 after writing it out in the space provided.

Household Number (HHN): (Item 8)
11. Each household within a housing unit will be given a one-digit serial number - 1,2,3, etc. If the housing unit is vacant then write `O'against the household number. This will indicate that no one was living there at the time of enumeration. Enter this number in box 15. You will then get the housing particulars for the housing unit.

17

Village/ Locality: (Item 9)
12. In the case of urban areas, enter here the name of the area, compound or township in which this house is located, e.g. Kansenshi, Chelston, Chipata Compound, Chilenje South, etc. In the case of rural areas write the name of the village/locality.

Residential Address: (Item 10)
13. Residential Address is the information that describes the place in such a manner that a person may be able to reach it by this reference. This will include the name or number of street and the location of this particular building on this street. It will also include house/flat number that the house already has, plot number or stand number, or the name of the building if it is commonly known by that name. For example Flat No. 2, Fife Court, Plot 712 Mwalule Road, Longacres. In rural areas, name of the village will suffice. No codes are necessary in this case.

Chief's Area: (Item 11)
14. This information is for the area you are operating in. You should confirm with the respondent the name of the chief for the area. You could come across people who pay allegiance to different chiefs in your area. What you are supposed to put down is the chief of the area. The name should be one of the names given in Appendix 2 of the list of chiefs for the district. If the name given is different or does not appear on the list, probe to find out if there has been any change in the names. If there has not been any, inform your supervisor about. it.

15. Census maps do not show the boundaries of chiefs' areas, therefore for the Central Statistical Office to correctly allocate people according to "Chiefs' Areas", you should be very careful when getting this information. Enter the appropriate code from Appendix 2 in boxes 16 - 18.

Ward: (Item 12)
16. A ward is a political delineation of an area. There may be more than one locality in one ward. The map you are using does not contain ward boundaries, the respondent will tell you the name of the ward in which his housing unit is located. In case he does not know, the 'party chairman- in the area will tell you. Your area might overlap wards, so you should not take it for granted that all the households you are covering should report the same ward. You should first ask before writing this in the space provided. Enter the appropriate codes as they appear in Appendix 9 in boxes 19 - 20.

Institutions/Collective Quarters: (Item 13)

17. Write the name of the Institution in the space provided. This includes Collective living quarters. The codes for institutions/collective living quarters are as follows:

2.6 Housing Unit

A Housing Unit is an independent place of abode intended for habitation by one household. This should have direct access to the outside such that. the occupants can come in or, go out without passing through anybody else's premises, that. is, a housing unit should have at least one door which directly leads outside in the open or into a public .corridor or hallway. Structures which are not intended for habitation such as garages and barns, classroom etc,. but are occupied as by one or more households at the time of the Census will also be treated as The following are the types of Housing Units, thus:

a. Traditional Housing Unit: A traditional housing unit is indigenous to a particular irrespective of building materials.

b. Mixed Housing Unit: Mixed housing: units are of a mixed type i.e.with a unique combination of building materials. .An example could be that of a conventional housing, with concrete block walls with an extension of rooms of pole and dagga walls or a cabin.

c. A Conventional House Flats (Housing Unit): A conventional housing unit is a room or a set of rooms and accessories in a permanent building. It can also be structurally separated part of the permanent building by the way it has been [illegible] apartments, etc. A Conventional Housing unit may be just one structure, several structures or part of a big structure. If it is part of a structure, then other parts may also be housing units, like in a block of flats, or be other than housing units, like shop, an office, etc., or mixture of such units. In some cases, a place may be originally designed as a barn, warehouse, etc., and thus not intended for human habitation. Later on it may be converted into a housing unit by structural alterations, re-design, etc., and thus may now be fit and intended for habitation. In such cases, these will now be classified as conventional housing units.

d. Mobile Housing Unit: This is any type of living quarter that has been produced to be transported e.g. a tent. A mobile housing unit may also refer to a moving unit such as a ship, a boat, or a caravan occupied as living quarters at the time of the census.

e. Part of Commercial building: This is a living quarter which is part of a commercial building, e.g. shop owners living on top of the shop.

f. An Improvised/Makeshift Housing Unit: An improvised housing unit is an independent, makeshift-shelter or structure built of mostly waste or salvaged materials and without a predetermined design or plan for the purpose of habitation by one household, which is being used as living quarters though it may not comply with generally accepted standards for habitation. Such a unit will be generally found in suburban shanty areas. Not all structures in shanty areas may be considered as improvised as many of these may have been built in a planned manner from regular building materials.

g. Collective Living Quarters: Collective living quarters include structurally separate and independent places of abode intended for habitation by large groups of individuals or several households with no common bond, public objective or interest. Such quarters usually contain common facilities such as kitchen, bathrooms, lounge or dormitories, which are shared by occupants. Examples are hotels, motels, inns, lodges, rooming houses, etc., which provide lodging on a fee basis.

h. Institutions: Institutions are sets of premises in a permanent structure or structures designed to house groups of persons (usually large) who are bound by either a common public objective or a common personal interest. In this type of livingquarters persons of the same sex frequently share dormitories. Examples are.Hospitals, military barracks, boarding schools, convents, seminaries, prisons, etc.

i. Unintended Living Quarters: Unintended living quarters are structurally separate and independent places of abodes. They may have been built. constructed. Converted or arranged for human habitation provided they are not at the time of the census used wholly for other purposes. They may also be in use for habitation at the time of the census although not intended for habitation.
