For Those Who Work
(Very important)

Column 40. This question (if they worked the week before the census, give the number of days), is for all the enumerated (men and women) who have something written in any of the columns 31 through 39. If the enumerated worked only in their principal occupation, write down the number of days; if they worked only in an occupation besides their principal occupation, write down the number of days; and if the enumerated worked in their principal occupation and also in a different occupation without retribution, add up the number days. Naturally, the total could not be more than 7.

Column 41. The purpose of column 41 is to obtain the data for personal job income, that is, for the fulfillment of an office, profession, or occupation exercised by any of the three categories of people (men and women),[P. 33] laborers, employees, or self-employed people. The first 2 cases (employees and laborers), includes people who receive remuneration as payment for their work (pay, salary), the third case refers to a person who is self-employed, and does not employ laborers or employees; these people exercise their activities for themselves without the help of paid persons; for this they are asked for their income data. To summarize, the data about income in column 41 will only be written for people who have something written in column 34, 35, or 37. It is expressly clarified that data should not be collected for income that is derived from capital, such as rent, income, dividends, etc. In column 41 write the quantity in pesos that the enumerated people (those indicated on the previous lines) received for their work in the month of May, 1960, adding up all their incomes, such as pay, compensation, salary, overtime pay, etc., that the enumerated received, without deducting for payments to insurance premiums, savings accounts, advanced payments, etc.

With this question we want to know how much the person earns for his/her work; take into account all of the income that the person receives for his/her work.

If the person has more than one job, write the sum of the incomes that he/she receives for all jobs.

[p.42]
If the informant answers that the person receives "the minimum", ask that the informant tell you how much the minimum wage is, and how often the person gets paid, so that you can do the math and write the answer in the corresponding space.

When they tell you a daily wage, ask: how many days a week did you work?, do the corresponding multiplication an write the answer in the space for "weekly". You should write the answer according to what the informant tells you; if the person receives income weekly, you should write the answer under "weekly"; if the pay is biweekly, you should write the answer under "Biweekly", etc.

Remember to use only the space that correspond to what the informant declares, and write the complete amount in numbers.

If the person declares to not receive income, mark:

VII Economic characteristics

In this section some of the economic characteristics of the population of work age (12 years old or older) are found out; which are related to socio-demographic and cultural information about the population, that permit us to know the socioeconomic situation of people and households.

[graphic of the question from the census form]

The information obtained in this section permits us to know, in a specific reference period (the week before the interview), how the work force [p. 119] in the country is formed, that is, who worked or looked for work; about the first jobs, what is done in the occupation, how many hours are worked, what are the incomes, the relation with the employer, etc.

Also in the population of 12 years old or older it is meant to distinguish who receives income by different sources at the job and the importance of these perceptions.


7.9 Income for work

This question has the objective of knowing the total number of monetary income that people get for doing their job or economic activity.

It is applied to people who worked or did any economic activity, like: teller in a bank, repairing computers, selling spare car parts, among others, also those who declared to not have worked in the reference week, but who did have a job, as is the case with women who do not work because of being on maternity leave.

Income is understood to be the total value of money that people receive for doing their job.

The answer to the question is registered in the following manner: in column 7.9A, the total value of income is written down; in column 7.9B, the period in which the income is received, which can by weekly, biweekly, [p. 138] by month or by year. For example, if an informant declares income of two thousand pesos a month, in the column of Income write down the amount and in the column of Period, write down code 3, corresponding to month.

When doubt exists by the part of an informant, about whether part of the income of salaried workers should be considered, clarify that also from a paycheck or salary, payment for working extra hours, expense vouchers, additional salary compensations in the reference week are included. Do not include as part of this income profit sharing, Christmas bonuses, compensation, closeout sales, vacation premium, bonuses, etc.

For people who get their income from earnings by the sale of products, ask to not include expenses or payments made for the buying of prime materials, paychecks or salaries of workers, rent of the place, among others.

When you know beforehand that the person does more than one job, ask the question in plural form: "How much does José make in his jobs?"

Frequently, for some workers the income they receive is not fixed, that is, they depend on sales or number of clients attended to. In these cases, ask that the informant gives you an approximate income or average of what is gained each week, month or year. For example: a farmer or member of a cooperative who is self employed, get the income only for the sale of the crop. For these cases, ask to calculate or estimate how much is earned or will be earned by its sale this year.

Another example is the case of people who work only for commission, since their income depends on finished sales. Because of this, what they earn is generally variable. In these cases, also ask for an estimation of what the person earns in a week, biweekly or month.

In an informant declares to not have received income, as is the case of family workers without pay, write down 00000 in the column Income and another 0 in the column Period.

For people who in question 7.5 were found to be family workers without pay and declare to receive income, write them down in the corresponding columns and explain the case in observations. Also do not correct the answer of 7.5.

If an informant declares that the person did not work the reference week, but did have a job, ask for the normal income for the work and register it in the corresponding space.

When they declare an amount in dollars, make the conversion to Mexican pesos, because of it ask the informant how much they give him for a dollar.

[p. 139]

Write down the income in whole numbers and in new pesos. If an answer is in old pesos, make the conversion recording the point three places to the left, for example, for a textile worker they tell you monthly income of three hundred and seventy five thousand four hundred fifty pesos, the answer is in old pesos and for it you should write down:

[Below the text is a filled out form.]

When the declaration refers to daily income, investigate the total number of days worked in the reference week and make the calculation multiplying the income by the number of days worked, then register the result and write down code 1 in the one corresponding to period.

When an informant declares an annual income equal or more than 98000 new pesos, write down "98000" in Income and write the code that corresponds to the pointed out period.

If an informant does not know or remember how much the occupied person earns, ask to estimate the average of income obtained and only after exhausting all possibilities, write down 99999 in the column for incomes and 9 in the period column.

28. Income from Work

[Depiction of this completed question on the enumeration form]

With this question we find out the amount of money that the person earns weekly, twice-monthly, monthly, or yearly from their job.

If they report that the person worked more than one job, add up what they earn in each one of them and record the total.

When the person hesitates to give an answer because what they earn is variable or they don't remember the exact amount, ask them to give you a figure even if it's approximate or an average.

If the informant responds that the person earns the minimum wage, ask how much that is, and if they don't know, consider the minimum monthly salary for your city to be $ [blank], for which you should verify with the informant if they receive this amount and how often they receive it.

6.5 Section III. Characteristics of the people

In this section the information of the people who inhabit the dwelling, like the sex, age, level of studies, income, among others, is obtained.

Before requesting the information for each person, copy all the names in the spaces designated for them, and for each person start with the phrase: "Now I'm going to ask about (mention the name of the person you previously noted)", so that the informer knows about whom you will be asking the information.


For persons age 12 or older
[Questions 24-35 are for persons age 12 or older]


32. Work income
This question records the quantity of money that the person receives, obtains, or earns for his/her work, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or annually.

[p. 114]

Upon recording the response, first calculate how often he/she receives the income, and after, the quantity received, without leaving spaces to the right.

Adjust the quantity of the considered periods when they identify a different period.

Solicit an approximate amount or average when the response is that the income varies, he/she doesn't know the exact quantity, he/she doesn't remember the amount of the income or the period, or says that he/she earns minimum wage. Confirm the quantity with the informer before writing the amount.

Add the income received when the person has completed more than one job the week before the data collection.

34. Income from work
This question identifies the amount of income that people receive from his work. To know this information, ask for the amount of money earned and the period in which it is received. Read the question, listen to the response, records the amount and circle a code for the time period. If the person only mentions the amount, ask "how often do you receive the money?", to obtain the time period.

[Figures are omitted]

Note that workers receive their payment for their jobs in different ways, such as:

[] Wages, salary, or piecework pay when the person works for an employer, company, or business.
[] Gain or commissions when the person own the business (he is employer or self-employed) and he/she gets profit when he/she sells processed products, animals, products derived from animals, crops, or payments by offered services.
[] The person receives commissions for made sales.

When people are dedicated to the field, cultivation, or animal breeding, ask them to consider the profit or payment the money earned for made sales, even when these are seasonal. When the answer is that the person receives a million pesos or more, scores 888,888 and circle the corresponding time period. When the person is an unpaid worker and therefore he/she does not receive or earns money by the job, only circle code 5 "does not receive payment".

It is recommended that each member of the home respond for themselves. If this is not possible, the Head or responsible adult could respond for the youngest, but it is preferable to insist that the adult members respond for themselves.
The information refers to the week before the Census. This week is defined as the reference week and is understood to be from Sunday to Saturday.


Questions 15 to 21 should be asked to all persons who were marked in any of the circles 01 to 05 of question 14. Except to persons who answered that they have never worked in question 15.

a. Wage or gross salary?
b. Income from independent work or by your own account?
c. Farm or livestock sales?
d. Retirement payment, pension, grants, family aid, rent, investments, or subsidies?
e. Without income

Read every one of the alternatives and wait for the response of the person. If there is no income in any of the alternatives draw a diagonal line. Below is detailed what should be included in each alternative of the question.
a. Wage or gross salary: refers to the wage, gross salary or commission obtained in the occupation that the person did last month, without deductions of Social Security, Income Tax, Education Insurance, or whatever other deduction from loans from a bank or other credit institution. When the person earned fixed wage and commission, add the two amounts and write down the result in the corresponding space.
Put a zero in front when the amount is less than 1,000, Example:


[Below the text is a filled out form.]

[p. 74]

For employees of the agricultural and livestock sector, ask for the whole gross salaries for all days worked last month and add those salaries earned during the time that they worked and write down the corresponding amount.
Example:
When enumerating a dwelling, it is found that one of its members worked in the agriculture and livestock sector in neighboring farms for 12 days. The payment received was B / 3.00 for 5 days and B / 4.00 the rest of the days worked, for which the calculation carried out is 3 Balboas for 5 days plus 4 Balboas for 7 days = B / 43.00. the salary to write down will be:

[Below the text is a filled out form.]

If a person is not sure or does not know the wage or salary of another person who is not present, with much tact, ask for last month's pay stub. If the checkbook corresponds to a week, multiply the gross total by 4.33 and if it is of every other week, multiply the gross total by 2.
If a person refuses to give a wage or salary, write down 9999 in the corresponding space
Example:
If you are enumerating a dwelling in the administrative unit Bella Vista and one of the members of the home who worked in a private company says that they do not know how much they earned, which is a subtle and indirect way of refusing to give the information, try to convince the person in a confidential way that they [the private company] have their information and use any other means of persuasion to get the required information. If you cannot obtain the information by any other means, write down the numbers 9999 in the following manner:


[p.75]

[Below the text is a filled out form.]

[p. 76]

c. Agricultural and livestock sales: refers to sales of agricultural and livestock products that an agricultural or livestock worker made during the last month.

The carried out calculation is 3 times 10 = B / 30.00 plus 10 times 12 = B / 120.00 plus 3 times 6 = B / 18.00 = B / 168.00. The income to be written down will be:

[Below the text is a filled out form.]

d. Retirement payments, pensions, grants, family aid, rent, investments or subsidies: refers to income received by a retired or pensioned person such as a food pension that one of the spouses receives from the other because of being separated, like food payments for the children that they have had in common.
It also includes here all contributions that one of many of the members of the home can receive from family members (not belonging to the home), or other persons such as public or private institutions. The contributions can be in money or in kind (goods or services). In this last case, the values should be calculated and written down in Balboas. Example[s] of this type of income are: milk or other food that children in schools or children's centers receive, food and goods donations by social aide or state programs; money, clothes, food or any other goods that can be received by being non resident parents or relatives in the interviewed dwelling, etc. The number to write down should be the final result of all the contributions that the person would be able to receive in this heading. Include also the money received by any renting of dwellings or places, land or any other property that the person owns and the dividends, interests, or benefits from stocks, bonds and savings accounts or investments. Do not forget to ask if there is any scholarship holder and if there is one under 10 years old, write down the information about the head of home.

[Questions 28 and 28A were asked to all household members]


Question No. 28: Was your income last month from:
[Question 28 is asked to all household members.]
When asking each of these questions, keep in mind that they must be asked in an orderly way.
Read every one of the options and wait for the person to supply you the response to each one. If the response is "I had no income", draw a line in the corresponding spaces.
Income: Refers to the retribution, be it monetary or in kind, received by all persons, active or non-active, during the month of April.
[To the right of the text is a picture of paper currency.]
Remember that a person can get income in one or many categories from a. to j. If the response is that no income was obtained, draw a line in the corresponding spaces.
When asking each of these questions, keep in mind that they must be asked in an orderly way, omitting unnecessary questions, depending on the age of the interviewee.
Remember that the value is given in integers, with no cents. If a person reports the income value including cents, proceed as follows: if cents are greater than or equal to 0.50, the income value must be rounded up. Example:

a) Payment of monthly salary. B/ 317.55. Enter 318.
b) Payment of monthly income. B/ 420.08.
If cents are less than 0.50, omit them. Example: [B/ 420.08.] Enter 420.

[p. 210]
a. Gross wage or salary: refers to the gross wage, salary or commission obtained by the employee, without deductions of Social Security, Income Tax, Education Insurance, or whatever other deduction from loans from a bank or other credit institution. This paragraph should bring information only if the person is an employee. Codes 1 to 5 in question 26.
If the employee receives payment in kind (clothes, food, shoes, etc.), enter the corresponding value in monetary form.
Keep in mind that sometimes the employee can receive both types of payment (in cash and in kind). If that were the case, then you must add both amounts and enter this value in the appropriate spaces.
Note that:
For persons who only receive commission for their job, write down how much they earned in their last commission.
Put a zero in front when the amount is less than B/10,000. If the amount is greater than B/100.000, write down 99998.
When a person earns a fixed salary and also overtime or commission, add the two amounts and write down the result in the corresponding space.
If the person has been working for less than a month and has not yet received any payment for her work, write down the amount agreed [by the parties].
For employees who receive an hourly wage, find out how much they earn per hour and how many hours a day they work. Multiply that value ["hourly wage" times "hours of work per day"] by the number of days worked per week, multiply this result by 4.33 to get the monthly amount.
For employees who receive a weekly salary, find out the average wage or salary per day, then multiply this amount by the number of days they usually work in the week, and multiply this amount by 4.33 to get monthly amount.
The year has 12 months, 52 weeks or 365 days.
By dividing 52 weeks between 12 months we get an average of 4.33 weeks [per month].
That is why the salary or monthly income is multiplied by 4.33, to get a monthly amount. Since some months have 5 weeks and others 4 weeks, by multiplying [a salary or income] by that number [4.33] we obtain a [monthly] salary or income closest to reality.

[p. 211]
For employees in the agricultural sector, who do not receive a fixed salary because they are paid according to the days worked, ask how much they earn per day, then multiply this amount by the number of days worked in the month and write down the resulting amount. So, in this case, you do not multiply by 4.33.
If no information is provided, note down clarifications on the space provided for observations.
All persons who marked any of the circles from 01 to 05 in question 26 (Do you work or did you work as…): Government employee, Employee of a Non-Profit Institution , Employee of a cooperative, Private Company Employee, Domestic employee, should have a response for this question. Exceptions are given to those who responded not having a job last month because they were unemployed.
Example No. 1:
Roberto earns B/.3.50 an hour. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day, and on Saturdays from 8 to 12.
Solution:
1. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day. 5x8 = 40 hours. He works for four hours on Saturdays. Total = 40+4 = 44 hours per week.
2. He earns B/3.50 per hour.
3. The calculation is as follows:
No. of hours per week x Hourly payment x 4.33
To get a monthly amount multiply by 4.33, because there are some months with 5 weeks.
44 x B/3.50= B/3.50 = B/154.00 weekly payment
Weekly payment B/154.00 x 4.33 = B/666.82 Monthly payment
Roberto earns B/666.82 a month.

[p. 212]
In the form the amount should be recorded as follows:
[Below the text, there is a sample image.]
[p. 213]
Example No. 2:
When enumerating a dwelling, it is found that one of its members worked as an agricultural worker on the farm Las Malvinas, for ten (10) days in the month. The payment received was B/.6.00 for 6 days and B/4.00 the rest of the work days.
[Below the text, there is a sample image of the form.]
[p. 214]
If you notice the person a little doubtful at the time of declaring the information to you, request, tactfully, a pay stub for the last month. If the pay stub corresponds to a week, multiply the gross total by 4.33, and if it corresponds to every other week, multiply the gross total by 2.
b. Thirteenth month: Include in this space the thirteenth month payment to employees of state-owned or private companies. If the person gives you the total amount of her bonus [Décimo in Spanish], divide it by four (4) and write down that amount in the appropriate space. If the person does not remember, divide the monthly salary received by twelve (12) and write it down in the space. For government employees, proceed as follows: If they earn less than or B/.400.00 calculate the thirteenth month payment as described above. If the person earns more than B/401.00 the thirteenth month payment is calculated on B/400.00. You should also be aware that there are some state institutions such as the Savings Bank and the National Bank, who pay the bonus based on the earned salary. If the person tells you that this is her case, proceed as directed above, i.e., divide the gross salary by 12 and write down the necessary observations.
Remember that employees of the Panama Canal Authority are not paid a thirteenth month [bonus]
c. Income from independent or own-account work: refers to net income, that is to say, income minus expenses in the activity that a person did.
[This option is only for independent or own-account workers, owners or employers, and members of a production cooperative.]

In some cases it will be a little difficult to obtain information from people who have no accounting records. In these cases, find out the average earnings per day, then multiply the amount by the number of days the person usually works in the week, and then multiply it by 4.33, and get the monthly income. If no information is provided, note down clarifications on the space provided for observations.
[p. 215]

[Questions 28 and 28A were asked to all household members]


Question No. 28: Was your income last month from:
[Question 28 is asked to all household members.]
When asking each of these questions, keep in mind that they must be asked in an orderly way.
Read every one of the options and wait for the person to supply you the response to each one. If the response is "I had no income", draw a line in the corresponding spaces.
Income: Refers to the retribution, be it monetary or in kind, received by all persons, active or non-active, during the month of April.
[To the right of the text is a picture of paper currency.]
Remember that a person can get income in one or many categories from a. to j. If the response is that no income was obtained, draw a line in the corresponding spaces.
When asking each of these questions, keep in mind that they must be asked in an orderly way, omitting unnecessary questions, depending on the age of the interviewee.
Remember that the value is given in integers, with no cents. If a person reports the income value including cents, proceed as follows: if cents are greater than or equal to 0.50, the income value must be rounded up. Example:

a) Payment of monthly salary. B/ 317.55. Enter 318.
b) Payment of monthly income. B/ 420.08.
If cents are less than 0.50, omit them. Example: [B/ 420.08.] Enter 420.

[p. 210]
a. Gross wage or salary: refers to the gross wage, salary or commission obtained by the employee, without deductions of Social Security, Income Tax, Education Insurance, or whatever other deduction from loans from a bank or other credit institution. This paragraph should bring information only if the person is an employee. Codes 1 to 5 in question 26.
If the employee receives payment in kind (clothes, food, shoes, etc.), enter the corresponding value in monetary form.
Keep in mind that sometimes the employee can receive both types of payment (in cash and in kind). If that were the case, then you must add both amounts and enter this value in the appropriate spaces.
Note that:
For persons who only receive commission for their job, write down how much they earned in their last commission.
Put a zero in front when the amount is less than B/10,000. If the amount is greater than B/100.000, write down 99998.
When a person earns a fixed salary and also overtime or commission, add the two amounts and write down the result in the corresponding space.
If the person has been working for less than a month and has not yet received any payment for her work, write down the amount agreed [by the parties].
For employees who receive an hourly wage, find out how much they earn per hour and how many hours a day they work. Multiply that value ["hourly wage" times "hours of work per day"] by the number of days worked per week, multiply this result by 4.33 to get the monthly amount.
For employees who receive a weekly salary, find out the average wage or salary per day, then multiply this amount by the number of days they usually work in the week, and multiply this amount by 4.33 to get monthly amount.
The year has 12 months, 52 weeks or 365 days.
By dividing 52 weeks between 12 months we get an average of 4.33 weeks [per month].
That is why the salary or monthly income is multiplied by 4.33, to get a monthly amount. Since some months have 5 weeks and others 4 weeks, by multiplying [a salary or income] by that number [4.33] we obtain a [monthly] salary or income closest to reality.

[p. 211]
For employees in the agricultural sector, who do not receive a fixed salary because they are paid according to the days worked, ask how much they earn per day, then multiply this amount by the number of days worked in the month and write down the resulting amount. So, in this case, you do not multiply by 4.33.
If no information is provided, note down clarifications on the space provided for observations.
All persons who marked any of the circles from 01 to 05 in question 26 (Do you work or did you work as…): Government employee, Employee of a Non-Profit Institution , Employee of a cooperative, Private Company Employee, Domestic employee, should have a response for this question. Exceptions are given to those who responded not having a job last month because they were unemployed.
Example No. 1:
Roberto earns B/.3.50 an hour. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day, and on Saturdays from 8 to 12.
Solution:
1. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day. 5x8 = 40 hours. He works for four hours on Saturdays. Total = 40+4 = 44 hours per week.
2. He earns B/3.50 per hour.
3. The calculation is as follows:
No. of hours per week x Hourly payment x 4.33
To get a monthly amount multiply by 4.33, because there are some months with 5 weeks.
44 x B/3.50= B/3.50 = B/154.00 weekly payment
Weekly payment B/154.00 x 4.33 = B/666.82 Monthly payment
Roberto earns B/666.82 a month.

[p. 212]
In the form the amount should be recorded as follows:
[Below the text, there is a sample image.]
[p. 213]
Example No. 2:
When enumerating a dwelling, it is found that one of its members worked as an agricultural worker on the farm Las Malvinas, for ten (10) days in the month. The payment received was B/.6.00 for 6 days and B/4.00 the rest of the work days.
[Below the text, there is a sample image of the form.]
[p. 214]
If you notice the person a little doubtful at the time of declaring the information to you, request, tactfully, a pay stub for the last month. If the pay stub corresponds to a week, multiply the gross total by 4.33, and if it corresponds to every other week, multiply the gross total by 2.
b. Thirteenth month: Include in this space the thirteenth month payment to employees of state-owned or private companies. If the person gives you the total amount of her bonus [Décimo in Spanish], divide it by four (4) and write down that amount in the appropriate space. If the person does not remember, divide the monthly salary received by twelve (12) and write it down in the space. For government employees, proceed as follows: If they earn less than or B/.400.00 calculate the thirteenth month payment as described above. If the person earns more than B/401.00 the thirteenth month payment is calculated on B/400.00. You should also be aware that there are some state institutions such as the Savings Bank and the National Bank, who pay the bonus based on the earned salary. If the person tells you that this is her case, proceed as directed above, i.e., divide the gross salary by 12 and write down the necessary observations.

Keep in mind that sometimes the employee can receive both types of payment (in cash and in kind). If that were the case, then you must add both amounts and enter this value in the appropriate spaces.
Note that:
For persons who only receive commission for their job, write down how much they earned in their last commission.
Put a zero in front when the amount is less than B/10,000. If the amount is greater than B/100.000, write down 99998.
When a person earns a fixed salary and also overtime or commission, add the two amounts and write down the result in the corresponding space.
If the person has been working for less than a month and has not yet received any payment for her work, write down the amount agreed [by the parties].
For employees who receive an hourly wage, find out how much they earn per hour and how many hours a day they work. Multiply that value ["hourly wage" times "hours of work per day"] by the number of days worked per week, multiply this result by 4.33 to get the monthly amount.

Exceptions are given to those who responded not having a job last month because they were unemployed.
Example No. 1:
Roberto earns B/.3.50 an hour. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day, and on Saturdays from 8 to 12.
Solution:
1. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day. 5x8 = 40 hours. He works for four hours on Saturdays. Total = 40+4 = 44 hours per week.
2. He earns B/3.50 per hour.
3. The calculation is as follows:
No. of hours per week x Hourly payment x 4.33
To get a monthly amount multiply by 4.33, because there are some months with 5 weeks.
44 x B/3.50= B/3.50 = B/154.00 weekly payment
Weekly payment B/154.00 x 4.33 = B/666.82 Monthly payment
Roberto earns B/666.82 a month.

If you notice the person a little doubtful at the time of declaring the information to you, request, tactfully, a pay stub for the last month. If the pay stub corresponds to a week, multiply the gross total by 4.33, and if it corresponds to every other week, multiply the gross total by 2.
b. Thirteenth month: Include in this space the thirteenth month payment to employees of state-owned or private companies. If the person gives you the total amount of her bonus [Décimo in Spanish], divide it by four (4) and write down that amount in the appropriate space.

For government employees, proceed as follows: If they earn less than or B/.400.00 calculate the thirteenth month payment as described above. If the person earns more than B/401.00 the thirteenth month payment is calculated on B/400.00. You should also be aware that there are some state institutions such as the Savings Bank and the National Bank, who pay the bonus based on the earned salary.

f. Aid from institutions or other persons who do not live with you: Include the contribution that a person receives provided from family members (those who live outside of the home), or other persons, as well as contributions from public or private institutions. The contribution can be in cash or in kind.
These contributions can consist of:
1) Child support: monetary contribution that children receive from the parent who does not live with them, or the contribution that adults receive from their children. In general, these pensions are laid down by a competent authority, such as a judge, magistrate or mayor.
[To the right of the text there is a picture.]
2) Money: monetary contribution received by a household member, from friends or relatives who do not live in with them.
3) Others: It refers to the calculation of the monetary value received by any household member, in donations of clothing, footwear, housing, transportation, construction materials, among others. When you write down a value in this field, you must specify what the value comprises in the space provided for that purpose. The amount you must register is the sum of all contributions that the person may receive in this category.

g. Rents, investments, interests, or benefits: This refers to money received by the rent of dwellings, premises, land or other property that the person owns. It also includes dividends, interest or profits from the ownership of stocks, bonds and savings accounts or investment accounts.
h. Scholarships: This refers to the income that persons may have received indirectly as a transfer from any institution for payment of their studies. This includes any type of subsidy provided by any institution (public or private). Also, it is considered in the category of scholarships any reimbursement of expenses that some companies give to their employees for expenses in education for themselves or a member of the employee's family. In these cases, the person does not directly receive an income, but she does not pay the education expenditures, because some institution does it on her behalf.
Find out with the interviewee, when they receive the scholarship and how many months are covered by this payment. Divide the amount received by the number of months covered, to get the monthly amount.
[p. 218]
Example:
The respondent states that she received a grant of B /300.00 every three months.
You must divide B /300.00 by three to get the monthly amount. The response will be recorded as follows:

[Below the text, there is a sample image of the form.]
[p. 219]
i. Agricultural or Livestock Sales: is the net income that the person has obtained for selling agricultural or livestock products. If the person claims to be an independent worker or a salaried worker in the agricultural sector, do not include this revenue here again.
[Below the text there are two pictures]
j. Other income: This includes any other income that the respondent received in the last month, from sources other than those listed above. If the person claimed to have more than one job as an employee, as an independent or own-account worker, record here the salary or income received from the other(s) job(s). Include any grant received last month. Also include the Conditional Cash Transfer (Red de Oportunidades), which should correspond to the person receiving it.
Note:
If the respondent has two jobs as an employee, write down the salary of the principal work in section a. (Gross salary or wages), and write down the second one in section j. (Other income).
If the respondent is an employee and has received income from independent or own-account work, her wages must be recorded in section a. (Gross salary or wages) and her income from independent or own-account work must be recorded in subsection c. (Income from self-employment or self).

[Questions 28 and 28A were asked to all household members]


Question No. 28: Was your income last month from:
[Question 28 is asked to all household members.]
When asking each of these questions, keep in mind that they must be asked in an orderly way.
Read every one of the options and wait for the person to supply you the response to each one. If the response is "I had no income", draw a line in the corresponding spaces.
Income: Refers to the retribution, be it monetary or in kind, received by all persons, active or non-active, during the month of April.
[To the right of the text is a picture of paper currency.]
Remember that a person can get income in one or many categories from a. to j. If the response is that no income was obtained, draw a line in the corresponding spaces.
When asking each of these questions, keep in mind that they must be asked in an orderly way, omitting unnecessary questions, depending on the age of the interviewee.
Remember that the value is given in integers, with no cents. If a person reports the income value including cents, proceed as follows: if cents are greater than or equal to 0.50, the income value must be rounded up. Example:

a) Payment of monthly salary. B/ 317.55. Enter 318.
b) Payment of monthly income. B/ 420.08.
If cents are less than 0.50, omit them. Example: [B/ 420.08.] Enter 420.

[p. 210]
a. Gross wage or salary: refers to the gross wage, salary or commission obtained by the employee, without deductions of Social Security, Income Tax, Education Insurance, or whatever other deduction from loans from a bank or other credit institution. This paragraph should bring information only if the person is an employee. Codes 1 to 5 in question 26.
If the employee receives payment in kind (clothes, food, shoes, etc.), enter the corresponding value in monetary form.
Keep in mind that sometimes the employee can receive both types of payment (in cash and in kind). If that were the case, then you must add both amounts and enter this value in the appropriate spaces.
Note that:
For persons who only receive commission for their job, write down how much they earned in their last commission.
Put a zero in front when the amount is less than B/10,000. If the amount is greater than B/100.000, write down 99998.
When a person earns a fixed salary and also overtime or commission, add the two amounts and write down the result in the corresponding space.
If the person has been working for less than a month and has not yet received any payment for her work, write down the amount agreed [by the parties].
For employees who receive an hourly wage, find out how much they earn per hour and how many hours a day they work. Multiply that value ["hourly wage" times "hours of work per day"] by the number of days worked per week, multiply this result by 4.33 to get the monthly amount.
For employees who receive a weekly salary, find out the average wage or salary per day, then multiply this amount by the number of days they usually work in the week, and multiply this amount by 4.33 to get monthly amount.
The year has 12 months, 52 weeks or 365 days.
By dividing 52 weeks between 12 months we get an average of 4.33 weeks [per month].
That is why the salary or monthly income is multiplied by 4.33, to get a monthly amount. Since some months have 5 weeks and others 4 weeks, by multiplying [a salary or income] by that number [4.33] we obtain a [monthly] salary or income closest to reality.

[p. 211]
For employees in the agricultural sector, who do not receive a fixed salary because they are paid according to the days worked, ask how much they earn per day, then multiply this amount by the number of days worked in the month and write down the resulting amount. So, in this case, you do not multiply by 4.33.
If no information is provided, note down clarifications on the space provided for observations.
All persons who marked any of the circles from 01 to 05 in question 26 (Do you work or did you work as…): Government employee, Employee of a Non-Profit Institution , Employee of a cooperative, Private Company Employee, Domestic employee, should have a response for this question. Exceptions are given to those who responded not having a job last month because they were unemployed.
Example No. 1:
Roberto earns B/.3.50 an hour. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day, and on Saturdays from 8 to 12.
Solution:
1. He works Monday to Friday, 8 hours a day. 5x8 = 40 hours. He works for four hours on Saturdays. Total = 40+4 = 44 hours per week.
2. He earns B/3.50 per hour.
3. The calculation is as follows:
No. of hours per week x Hourly payment x 4.33
To get a monthly amount multiply by 4.33, because there are some months with 5 weeks.
44 x B/3.50= B/3.50 = B/154.00 weekly payment
Weekly payment B/154.00 x 4.33 = B/666.82 Monthly payment
Roberto earns B/666.82 a month.

[p. 212]
In the form the amount should be recorded as follows:
[Below the text, there is a sample image.]
[p. 213]
Example No. 2:
When enumerating a dwelling, it is found that one of its members worked as an agricultural worker on the farm Las Malvinas, for ten (10) days in the month. The payment received was B/.6.00 for 6 days and B/4.00 the rest of the work days.
[Below the text, there is a sample image of the form.]
[p. 214]
If you notice the person a little doubtful at the time of declaring the information to you, request, tactfully, a pay stub for the last month. If the pay stub corresponds to a week, multiply the gross total by 4.33, and if it corresponds to every other week, multiply the gross total by 2.
b. Thirteenth month: Include in this space the thirteenth month payment to employees of state-owned or private companies. If the person gives you the total amount of her bonus [Décimo in Spanish], divide it by four (4) and write down that amount in the appropriate space. If the person does not remember, divide the monthly salary received by twelve (12) and write it down in the space. For government employees, proceed as follows: If they earn less than or B/.400.00 calculate the thirteenth month payment as described above. If the person earns more than B/401.00 the thirteenth month payment is calculated on B/400.00. You should also be aware that there are some state institutions such as the Savings Bank and the National Bank, who pay the bonus based on the earned salary. If the person tells you that this is her case, proceed as directed above, i.e., divide the gross salary by 12 and write down the necessary observations.
Remember that employees of the Panama Canal Authority are not paid a thirteenth month [bonus]
c. Income from independent or own-account work: refers to net income, that is to say, income minus expenses in the activity that a person did.
[This option is only for independent or own-account workers, owners or employers, and members of a production cooperative.]
Only for independent or own-account worker, owner or employer, and member of a production cooperative, circles 07, 08 and 09 of question 26.
For an independent or own-account worker, the amount recorded is the net income, i.e., income minus expenses in her activity.
In the case of agricultural workers who are independent or own-account workers, include self-consumption (this is, when they consume at home a proportion of what they produce).
In some cases it will be a little difficult to obtain information from people who have no accounting records. In these cases, find out the average earnings per day, then multiply the amount by the number of days the person usually works in the week, and then multiply it by 4.33, and get the monthly income. If no information is provided, note down clarifications on the space provided for observations.
[p. 215]
Example:
When enumerating the owner of a grocery store, he says that he obtained a net gain by the sale of provisions, approximately B/25.00 daily. The store does not close any day of the month.
[Below the text, there is a sample image of the form.]
[p. 216]
d. Retirement or old age pension: Refers to the person who receives income from a retirement system or pension (regardless of the country where he retired).
e. Pension (by accident, illness, or other survivor): Refers to payments recognized by a social security system if the person has any ailment, disease or inability to practice an occupation.
Include in this section those persons receiving a pension such as survivors of the father, mother, son, daughter, wife, as well as pensions from disabled children.
f. Aid from institutions or other persons who do not live with you: Include the contribution that a person receives provided from family members (those who live outside of the home), or other persons, as well as contributions from public or private institutions. The contribution can be in cash or in kind.
These contributions can consist of:
1) Child support: monetary contribution that children receive from the parent who does not live with them, or the contribution that adults receive from their children. In general, these pensions are laid down by a competent authority, such as a judge, magistrate or mayor.
[To the right of the text there is a picture.]

[To the right of the text there is a picture.]
Add up all the contributions the person may receive in this area.

[To the left of the text is a picture of a cow.]

g. Rents, investments, interests, or benefits: This refers to money received by the rent of dwellings, premises, land or other property that the person owns. It also includes dividends, interest or profits from the ownership of stocks, bonds and savings accounts or investment accounts.
h. Scholarships: This refers to the income that persons may have received indirectly as a transfer from any institution for payment of their studies. This includes any type of subsidy provided by any institution (public or private). Also, it is considered in the category of scholarships any reimbursement of expenses that some companies give to their employees for expenses in education for themselves or a member of the employee's family. In these cases, the person does not directly receive an income, but she does not pay the education expenditures, because some institution does it on her behalf.
Find out with the interviewee, when they receive the scholarship and how many months are covered by this payment. Divide the amount received by the number of months covered, to get the monthly amount.
[p. 218]
Example:
The respondent states that she received a grant of B /300.00 every three months.
You must divide B /300.00 by three to get the monthly amount. The response will be recorded as follows:

[Below the text, there is a sample image of the form.]
[p. 219]

Section 10 - Income

The census is a major source of collecting income data for all persons and their families and households in Trinidad and Tobago. This section seeks to obtain information on the amount of and distribution of income earned by households. Income can also be related to other characteristics of persons in households for example occupation, industry and level of educational attainment.

Census income data are widely used by government to develop support programmes, public social assistance, welfare payments and social services. Income data are also used to identify specific geographic communities in need of assistance. Business enterprises also use income data to help market their products and target consumers to sell other goods and services produced.

[p.60]

Remember income is defined as sources of benefits in both cash and kind accruing to the members of the household regardless of whether the members are economically active or not.

It is important to keep in mind that many persons are hesitant to tell others how much money they earn. You must therefore be tactful if you are to get the question answered correctly or willingly. You may need to emphasize or explain that the information is required to work out average income per individual for the entire country. If members of the household are still uncomfortable giving the exact amount of their income, use the income flash card provided by the Census Office as a last resort. Record the code that represent the income group to which the individual belongs.

In other cases, the head of the household may genuinely not be aware of the income of the other members. In cases like these, an effort must be made to obtain the information directly from the relevant member of the household. Perhaps an appointment can be made to meet the individual.

This Section is applicable to all persons 15 years and over whether working or not and is intended to reflect the situation at the time of enumeration. You are to obtain income data to complete items (1), (2), (3) and (7). Multiple entries are possible for any one individual.

Question 41 (1) - Paid employment

Income from paid employment include wages, salaries and other benefits in cash or in kind earned by individuals before deductions for social security schemes and income taxes. It also covers payments as commissions, tips and bonuses, cost of living allowances, vacation allowances, director's fees and the cost to employees of food, lodging, clothing which is provided free of charge or at a reduced cost. In other words, the total compensation package of the individual is recorded.

Question 41 (2) - Self-employment

For the self-employed, income reported should be net income i.e. total income less business operating expenses such as wages, rent, electricity and fuel. These persons may be those who operate agricultural operations, in addition to those who own and operate unincorporated business and persons in professional practice.

Question 41 (3) - Pension and annuities

Private and government pensions and annuities can be described as retirement benefits that individuals receive upon retirement to replace their earnings.

Many employers have established pension programmes for their employees so that upon retirement the employees will still receive some source of income. Included in pensions is the government's old age pension granted to senior citizens.

[p.61]

An annuity is a pension policy that the individual takes out or purchases on his or her own. These payments are usually made in a lump sum and then at a reduced monthly payment over a certain number of years.

Question 41 (7) - Other income

Is described as monies, which an individual receives from sources other than his/her wages, salaries, pensions and annuities. Other Income includes rent received, dividends, interest (investment income) and royalties. Periodic payments received regularly from an inheritance or trust fund are also regarded as Income, as well as alimony, unemployed benefits, sick pay, scholarships and remittances from abroad.

The following items should not be regarded as income:

Receipts from sale of possessions,
Withdrawals from savings,
Loans,
Tax refunds,
Maturity payments on Insurance policy,
Lump-sum compensation for injury,

For item, 1,2,3,7 income is recorded to the nearest dollar For example, $5000 is entered as _5000. Obtain from the respondent for each or any item indicated, whether the income relates to a daily (01), weekly (02), fortnightly (03), monthly (04), quarterly (05) or annually (06) period. These codes are inserted against each type of income recorded. If income is given monthly enter 04.

Section 10 - Income

The census is a major source of collecting income data for all persons and their families and households in Trinidad and Tobago. This section seeks to obtain information on the amount of and distribution of income earned by households. Income can also be related to other characteristics of persons in households for example occupation, industry and level of educational attainment.

Census income data are widely used by government to develop support programmes, public social assistance, welfare payments and social services. Income data are also used to identify specific geographic communities in need of assistance. Business enterprises also use income data to help market their products and target consumers to sell other goods and services produced.

[p.60]

Remember income is defined as sources of benefits in both cash and kind accruing to the members of the household regardless of whether the members are economically active or not.

It is important to keep in mind that many persons are hesitant to tell others how much money they earn. You must therefore be tactful if you are to get the question answered correctly or willingly. You may need to emphasize or explain that the information is required to work out average income per individual for the entire country. If members of the household are still uncomfortable giving the exact amount of their income, use the income flash card provided by the Census Office as a last resort. Record the code that represent the income group to which the individual belongs.

In other cases, the head of the household may genuinely not be aware of the income of the other members. In cases like these, an effort must be made to obtain the information directly from the relevant member of the household. Perhaps an appointment can be made to meet the individual.

This Section is applicable to all persons 15 years and over whether working or not and is intended to reflect the situation at the time of enumeration. You are to obtain income data to complete items (1), (2), (3) and (7). Multiple entries are possible for any one individual.

Question 41 (1) - Paid employment

Income from paid employment include wages, salaries and other benefits in cash or in kind earned by individuals before deductions for social security schemes and income taxes. It also covers payments as commissions, tips and bonuses, cost of living allowances, vacation allowances, director's fees and the cost to employees of food, lodging, clothing which is provided free of charge or at a reduced cost. In other words, the total compensation package of the individual is recorded.

Question 41 (2) - Self-employment

For the self-employed, income reported should be net income i.e. total income less business operating expenses such as wages, rent, electricity and fuel. These persons may be those who operate agricultural operations, in addition to those who own and operate unincorporated business and persons in professional practice.

Question 41 (3) - Pension and annuities

Private and government pensions and annuities can be described as retirement benefits that individuals receive upon retirement to replace their earnings.

Many employers have established pension programmes for their employees so that upon retirement the employees will still receive some source of income. Included in pensions is the government's old age pension granted to senior citizens.

[p.61]

An annuity is a pension policy that the individual takes out or purchases on his or her own. These payments are usually made in a lump sum and then at a reduced monthly payment over a certain number of years.

Question 41 (7) - Other income

Is described as monies, which an individual receives from sources other than his/her wages, salaries, pensions and annuities. Other Income includes rent received, dividends, interest (investment income) and royalties. Periodic payments received regularly from an inheritance or trust fund are also regarded as Income, as well as alimony, unemployed benefits, sick pay, scholarships and remittances from abroad.

The following items should not be regarded as income:

Receipts from sale of possessions,
Withdrawals from savings,
Loans,
Tax refunds,
Maturity payments on Insurance policy,
Lump-sum compensation for injury,

For item, 1,2,3,7 income is recorded to the nearest dollar For example, $5000 is entered as _5000. Obtain from the respondent for each or any item indicated, whether the income relates to a daily (01), weekly (02), fortnightly (03), monthly (04), quarterly (05) or annually (06) period. These codes are inserted against each type of income recorded. If income is given monthly enter 04.

8.30. Estimated income in Bolívares [Venezuelan currency] from the last month (or obtained during the last month worked) in the form of salaries or wages; commissions, tips, and bonuses. (Q - 31).

a) Definition of income: For those with salaries (employees [white collar] or manual laborers), income is the total sum of the money obtained by one person in all of the work completed, part or full-time, [p. 124] in any condition and that was made during the last month in one or more jobs or employments. Daily income and salary includes the "gross income", not excluding any of the deductions and contributions such as: tax deductions, Social Security, etc. Also included are: tips, commissions, pay per job, bonuses, and profit sharing if received by the employee in addition to the daily pay, wage, or salary.

b) Some type of incomes:


1. Pay per job: Money received from work completed at a specific rate per job/task.

2. Commissions: Money received through a business transaction completed for another person.

3. Tips: Payment received as a compliment to a daily wage, received for service provided to a client.

4. Bonuses: Payments made by employers to employees as a supplement to daily wages and salaries; for example, for services based on a percentage of profits.

5. Wage or salary: Wage or Salary obtained as an employee [white collar] or manual laborer of the government or of a private enterprise.


c) Using the same concepts of income from the previous paragraph, ask those who are unemployed what their monthly income was in their last job.


[p. 125]

d) Combined incomes:

Try to find out if the person marked as an employee in question 30 received additional income from one or more secondary jobs on own-account. This income, along with any other special payments, should be added to the amount declared. The most common case is that of an employee [white collar] or manual laborer of the government or of a private enterprise that obtains a principal income and additionally completes work on his/her own-account. Such is the case with doctors, dentists, lawyers, nurses, professors in any specialty, street peddlers, etc., and any other non professional persons in a similar situation.
