Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


The next questions (from 17 to 25) are asked to all women and men 14 years old or older


22. What does the establishment or place where the person works do or produce?

Here we register what an establishment does but not the activity the enumerated person did in it.

When we say place or establishment we are referring to one physical unit, for example a factory, a business, a school.

One should keep in mind that a company can have one or many establishments. For example, let us suppose that an oven factory has its production plant in San Luis and the administrative offices in the Federal Capital. In this case we have two different establishments and we should register the activity of the establishment where the enumerated person works; "production of ovens" or "central administration of a factory that produces ovens."

There exist persons who do all or a large part of their activities away from the establishment where they work, like for example: chauffeurs by means of transportation, distributors of soft drinks, etc. In these cases equally we want to know what is the economic activity that the establishment carries out which the enumerated person does, for example "automobile transporter of passengers", "production of soft drinks", etc.

In the case of a worker for their own account (without employees or laborers) we register the activity of this job, since it is the same person who constitutes the establishment.

We write in as much detail as possible the response that is given to us trying to go into depth, for example, what is done, what they do, with what primary material, and for what reason or for whom they produce it or make it.


[p. 32]

We see the following examples:
1 -- Production of furniture (what they do) of wood (with what primary material) for sale to the public (for what reason and for whom do they do it).

2 -- Production and canning of preservatives, marmalade and jelly (What they do or produce and what is done).

3 -- Sale of articles of clothing (What they do or what is done) to commercial retailers (For whom they do it).

4 -- Railway transportation (What they do, what is done) of passengers (For whom they do it).

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Starting here, men and women who are 14 years old and more should answer the questions.

Follow the order of the questions strictly.

Pay attention to the sequence indicated by the arrows and the steps to continue asking the questions.

The questions 20 to 23 refer to the marital status of the persons 14 years old or more.

Questions 24 to 37
These questions ask about the employment of the population. We will now see how some of the questions should be completed.

Carefully observe sequence indicated by the arrows and the steps tom continue asking questions.


Main job is the one where the person answering the census worked the most hours during the week before the census. If the person answering the census has two jobs in which he/she works the same number of hours, you should opt for the one where he/she obtains the greatest income.

Question 28: The place or establishment where he/she works, what it the activity that they do or the service that they offer?

The place or establishment is a determined physical place (commercial building, business, private home, dairy farm, service station, public road, factory, etc.), where the person answering the Census carries out his/her work.

This question refers to the principal activity of the establishment, and not the tasks that the person answer the Census carries out, nor the activities of the sector/area/address where this person carries out his/her work.

For example: Joaquin works in the accounting section of a factory that makes footwear for athletes. You will register: Manufacture of shoes and sports footwear in general.
[p. 50]
The answer to this question should be registered with the greatest possible detail, emphasizing:
What they do -- the process or action that he/she carries out in the location or establishment.

What is the product or service -- the product make or the service provided.

What they use and what it is used for -- the primary material used or the destination if he/she refers to a service.
For example:
1. Manufacture shoes and handbags / out of leather
what they do and what is the product / with what

2. Teaches private classes / for students of Basic General Education
What he/she does and what is the service / for whom (destination)

3. Transports passengers / in a long--distance passenger bus
What he/she does and what is transported / with what means

Let's look at some specific situations.
--In the cases of persons who, depending on the establishment, carry out all or most of his/her activities outside of the establishment (drivers of means of transportation, distributors of soft drinks, etc.) you should register the primary activity of the establishment on which they depend.
For example:
--Omar drives a truck making deliveries for a factory that packages fish and seafood. You will register: Manufacture of packaged fish and seafood.

--In the case of a self-employed worker or domestic worker, or persons who are not self-employed and carry out their labor activities in environments that do not depend on any establishment (taxis, the household where he/she works, the street), here you should register the activity that the person carries out, since the persons constitutes the place of work.
For example:
--Nancy is a domestic employee in a family home. You will register: Domestic employee.

--Luis is the owner of a taxi with which he works and he does not have employees nor day laborers. You will register: Transports passengers in a taxi that he owns.
[p. 51]
When the person answer the Census works in a business that has more than one location and one of those is the business administration, the description of the activity should correspond to the activity of the location where the person works. If the person answer the Census works in the central administration of a business, you should also write the principal activity of this business, for example, "Central administration of a petroleum refinery."

Let's see another example:
--Silvina works in the central administration office of an automobile business, whose principal plant, where the automobiles are made, is in another city. In this case there are two establishments: in the first, the activity is the manufacture of automobiles and in the second the activity is the central administration of the automobile factory.

[p. 26]

The answer for this question is filled in for the people who in October 3-9, 2001 had a job or a profitable occupation (for whom code 1 was written in the 25th question). While filling in the answer, it must be remembered that the character of the activity of the replier's workplace, organization, establishment (or its branch) must be defined clearly and accurately for it to be possible to determine the type of the economic activity later during the future drafting of the questionnaires (that is to say when during the summarizing the type of the economic activity written in words is changed into the codes).

Main is considered to be the job/occupation which the replier himself considers to be main for him. If the replier finds it difficult to define the main job then the main can be considered the job where he/ she worked more hours during the week or from where he/she gets more profit.

For those people who in October 3-9, 2001 changed their main job, the type of the work that they did at the end of the week is written.

For those people who worked in a unit that doesn't have a structural subdivision (for example shop, farm, mine and so on); for example for those people who worked in "Kat" specialized dairy retail store, "specialized dairy retail store" is written. For those people who worked in movable tents or in the market and were doing dairy retail trade "dairy retail trade in the movable tent or market" is written. (The later drafting of the information is done according to the international standards using "the classification of the characters of the economic activities" which was approved and put in use by the Armenian State Standard by the instruction N 21-V, 12.07.2001 (NACE). It was approved by the RA National Statistical Service, by the resolution N 58, 24.07.2001)

For those people who worked in the economical unit that had a structural subdivision, where character of activity is different from the character of the economical unit, the main activity of the subdivision where the replier worked is written. For example for the person who works in the cafeteria of the tobacco factory, "the activity of the cafeteria" is written and not that of the tobacco factory. For the doctors (including dentists), who worked in schools, kindergartens and so on "the medical (dentist) activity) is written.

For those people who worked in the organizations who have various types of activities, for example firm group or concern, the type of the subdivision where the replier works is written.

For those people who work in organizations or establishments, the type the activity of the economic unit or subdivision is written and not the type of the work the replier does. For example, for the person who works as a truck driver in the cement factory "cement production" is written.

If the replier finds it difficult to determine the type of the activity of his/her workplace, then the main goods that are produced or the services provided by the organization should be determined and written and the subdivision of the activity in the given organization (the specific weight is the highest in general) should be determined.

If the replier is fired from the job for the organization or establishment of a trade-union, then "trade-union activity" is written.

For those people who work in their own organization or have their own business (without including hired people or without including them time after time), the corresponding economic activity type is written (for example "shoe repairing", "artel of women's shirts").

For those people who work for certain citizens, the corresponding economical type of the activity is written. For example for the seller who does a retail trade of cigarettes "cigarettes retail trade" is written. For those people who are hired personally and who serve in the households (for example secretary, cook, nurse and so on) "household serving" is written.

For those people who are engaged in agriculture, the exact type of the activity is written. For example, "growing melon field cultures," "cattle- breeding, stock-raising" or "the production of cattle-breeding products" and so on.

[p. 27]

For the members of the household or the relatives who work in the organization, establishment, household, farm without payment, the corresponding type of the activity of the organization, establishment, or farm is written.

For those people who are engaged in religious activities, "religious activity" is written.

For those people who work in the religious organizations, the activity type is written according to the produced product or the type of the service. For example; for those people who engaged in the publishing of the religious newspapers and magazines "newspaper and magazine publication".

For those people who serve in the army "serves in the army" is written.

For all the people who are unemployed "no" is written.

Question 15-17 of the persons sheet
[Questions 15 - 17 were asked of employed persons, active duty guardsman, and unemployed persons only.]

The Statistic Central Office checks the answers for Questions 15 and 17 in the systematic register, so that they can be coded correctly for consolidation processing with the computer. For a very general restrained held answers, for example "office employee", the person in charge however does not know whether the person should be classified as an authorized signatory, accountant, shorthand typist, or paper sorter. If in question 17 for example only "metal branch" is marked, then this could just as well be a car factory, an art lock-making or an ironware store. Therefore the most accurate possible answers are requested. If someone remarks that they are not able to describe their profession, a description of work of the employed person or the type of product or the services of the business or the department is also sufficient.

For questions 11 and 14, Job title, Branch of industry

The answers for questions 11 and 14 checked in the systematic distortions at the Statistic Central Office, so that they can be properly encoded for processing with the computer. Concerning a general held answer, i.e. "office employee", the editor however does not know if the person should be classified as an authorized signatory, accountant, shorthand typist, or paper sorter. If in question 14 for example only "metal branch" is marked, then this could just as well be a rolling mill or a car factory, an art-lock making or an ironware store. Therefore the most accurate possible answers are requested.

In Question 11b, the professional occupation should be described in addition in note form. If someone remarks that they are not able to describe their profession, then they should refer to the auxiliary questions from the explanations (on the fourth page of the household list). During the test census before the people's census, it was found that keyword descriptions of professions were very practical for the encoding of answers.

Persons who are employed as well as attending a school, answer questions 11 to 16 depending on if they designated themselves as "employed" or "student, pupil" in question 10.

Purpose of the question:
The results of the populations census in occupational and economic areas are of great importance for the planning administration, the economy, research and the representation of interests, because they present a cross section of the total of all employed persons.

13, Economic sector:
Please give a precise description:
e.g. "weaving mill," underwear factory," "fabric wholesaler," - not "textile company."

The economic activity indicates which sector the business for which you work belongs to. Public servants enter "federal administration," state administration" or "municipal administration," depending on which government unit they are employed with.

Enumerator guideline:
The entries in this question are looked up in a dictionary-like directory, in order to be able to correctly code you for the processing with the computer. For a generally held entry such as "metal branch" the processor can not differentiate if it involves a rolling mill, an automobile factory, an artistic metal-working shop or a hardware store. Statements as precise as possible are asked for.

Purpose of the question:
The economic subdivision of employed persons forms, with the characteristics of age and gender, the basis for structural analyses and the projection of the development possibilities of [p. 76] regional and national labor markets. In connection with the economic sector, the industry dependence of individual occupations can be made transparent. In connection with the position in the household, housewives and children can be assigned to the economic class of the provider. With that the portion of the entire population that is affected by a shrinking or rising economic sector, can be indicated. The population census provides (with the help of commuter statistics) information about the economic structure of individual location areas, beyond the only survey, as well as residence-oriented data about the branches in which the employees are active also, for example the dependence of certain regions on the outlying firms.

If you hold several jobs, please answer questions12 to 15 for the occupation involving the most working hours. If you are switching jobs at the time of the census, please answer questions 12 to 15 for your situation on 15 May 2001.

Question 12:
The "self-employed" (also freelances and professionals) are individuals who pursue their profession for their own account and are therefore not in an employment relationship as an employee.

Persons "helping in family business" are gainfully employed persons who are working in a business owned by a family member without receiving formal remuneration for this work.

Persons "under contract for work and services, freelance staff" are individuals who perform their work for their own account, similar to the self-employed.

High voltage line installer
Planing machine operator
Scientific researcher in environmental protection


Question 14:
Please indicate as precisely as possible the name of the business/establishment at which you work for item 14.1, its industry (branch of economic activity) for item 14.2.

Please write in 14.1 the complete company name (e.g. Robert Miller GmbH). If you own a business without a formal company name (e.g. farmer), enter your own name in question 14.1.

Persons with several employers enter the company where they work the most amount of time and answer the remaining questions for this company.

Question 15:
The information from questions 15.1 to 15.6 on going to work or school everyday can be used to determine traffic flows. If you go both to school and to work, you should answer the questions for going to work.

Re 15.1: Persons commuting once a week enter the address of their accommodations at their place of work/school. If you depart both from your main place of residence and other accommodations, please indicate the place from which you depart more frequently. In case of doubt, the situation on the reference date applies.

Re 15.2: Gainfully employed persons with telework positions who visit their company at least once a week should include commuter data for these trips to the company.

Re 15.4: Gainfully employed persons enter the address of their place of work where they start work everyday. In other words, it is not the address of the head office of the company that is to be entered but e.g. for sales staff the address of the branch and for teachers the address of the school (base school) at which they teach. Persons with variable places of work (e.g. traveling salesmen) are kindly asked to enter the address of the place of work where they receive their work assignment.

Re 15.5: Persons who switch the mode of transportation they use day to day should indicate the one most frequently used. In case of doubt, the situation on the reference date should be entered.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Questions 12 through 15:
Explanation: Persons who marked one of the three "gainfully employed" boxes in question 11 must answer questions 12 to 15 in any case for this gainful employment regardless of the referrals to other questions. If you hold several jobs, please answer questions 12 to 15 for the occupation involving the most working hours. If you are switching jobs at the time of the census, please answer questions 12 to 15 for your situation on 15 May 2001.
The population census results by occupational and economic characteristics are of great importance for the planning administration, the economy, research and the representation of interests, because they present a cross section of the total of all gainfully employed persons. Other surveys (like e.g. local unit of employment census) or the social insurance institutes also provide information in this field, but not with the diversity, objectivity, and regional structural and combination possibilities of the population census.


Regarding questions 14 and 15:
Among the goals of the population census are: the determination of the affiliation of the population in the different branches of the economy (industry, services, etc) as well as the depiction of the traffic flows from housing units to the companies, office, schools etc.

The prerequisites for this analysis are composed of the information on name, address, economic sector and company (office, etc.) telephone number. The telephone number corresponds to a critical importance in as much as it, with your help, - number statements are easier to process in the EDV than text - should be possible to relatively quick and inexpensively ascertain the company and its economic sector or exact location in the company registers of Statistics Austria. If that - for example, because of a missing telephone number - is not possible, this information must be gained relatively expensively and time consuming, from the text statements (address, economic sector).

The telephone number will, under no circumstances, be used for further inquiry at the company in question - this is impossible, because the data sets for persons are saved without names in the EDV.


14. Place of work:
Please indicate as precisely as possible the name of the business/establishment at which you work for in item 14.1, its industry (branch of economic activity) for item 14.2.

Please write in 14.1 the complete company name (e.g. Robert Miller GmbH). If you own a business without a formal company name (e.g. farmer), enter your own name in question 14.1.

Persons with several employers enter the company where they work the most amount of time and answer the remaining questions for this company.

Attendants in public service should indicate the name of their agency as precisely as possible in 14.1, yet in 14.2 give an indication of the public service. For example:

14.1 Tax office Bregenz, 14.2 federal administration
14.1 Constabulary post Lienz, 14.2 public security
14.1 Registration office Hallein, 14.2 municipality administration
14.1 Austrian insurance fund for civil or public servants Graz, 14.2 social insurance


[p. 95]

The entries for this question should - provided that automation-support with the telephone number was not possible - be automation-supported coded with the help of systematic listings. For a generally held entry (e.g. "metal industry"), one can not discern if a steel mill or a motor factory, a blacksmith or a hardware store is concerned. Information as precise as possible is requested.
The name of the company serves - together with the address and telephone number in question 15.4 - as aid characteristic for the assignment of gainfully employed persons in economic branches and as the goal of the path to work.

The economic segmentation of the gainfully employed forms, with the characteristics of age and gender, the basis for structural analyses and the projection of the development possibilities of regional and national labor markets. In connection with the economic sector, the industry dependence of individual occupations can be made transparent. Further, the portion of the entire population that is affected by a shrinking or rising economic sector, can be indicated. The population census provides (with the help of commuter statistics) information about the economic structure of individual location areas, beyond an individual survey, as well as residence-oriented data about the branches in which the employees are active also, for example the dependence of certain regions on the outlying firms.

24. Branch of activity

The branch of activity corresponds to the activity of the establishment or enterprise where the person has worked for at least 7 days [continuous or not] in the 3 last months preceding the census agent's visit.

This also concerns unemployed persons who have already worked [code "3" of number 21 "unemployed"] of the last branch of activity in which they worked.

Q: "What is/was the main activity that [the respondent] exercises/exercised or the enterprise in which you/[the respondent] work/works?"

Write legibly the declared type of activity on the corresponding line.

[Page 70]

Example 1:

Shoemaking;
Bike reparations;
Corn farming;
Domestic services [in the case where the employee is or was a servant for a private individual];
Building construction [in the case of a secretary working or having worked in a construction company];
Education;
Bean donut making;
Finance ministry.

Attention: In certain cases, a domestic worker or a household personnel [cook, driver, guard, etc.] can be appointed to the service of high level official [minister, general manager of a public or private company] while being paid by the employer or the company that employs the official. In such case, the person is not a household personnel but a salaried employee or that employer or enterprise. For this category of personnel, write down the name of the hiring employer or enterprise.

Example 2:

For the driver of the minister of development who is part of the state personnel, write down "Ministry of Development;"
For the cook or the guard who works in the domicile of the President of the Administration Council of Benin Marina Hotel and are paid by the Benin Marina Hotel, write down Benin Marina Hotel for both.

Column [P15] industry
The industry identifies the kind of product or service produced by the worker and his fellow workers. This is distinct from the person's own job, which is his occupation. You will very often discover a person's industry by asking who employs him and what kind of articles [or services] are produced by his employer. [For example, a man may be a clerk and employed by a farmer, his occupation is 'Clerk' and his industry is 'Farming']. If the same person was employed by a mining company his occupation stays the same as Clerk, but his industry should be recorded as 'Mining'. Similarly for a clerk employed by a Council, you should write the name of the Council for his industry, for a clerk employed by the Government the name of the Department or Ministry. If you cannot establish the articles or services produced by the employers, write the name of the employers.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Column A15: Industry

What was the main product, service or activity of [the respondent]'s place of work?

The industry identifies the main kind of product produced or the main service provided by the establishment or the work unit in which the individual works. It is important to understand the difference between industry and occupation. An occupation summarizes the tasks performed by an individual who is working. The industry has to do with the products or services, or main functions or activities, of the workplace. For example, a woman may be an Accounts Clerk who is employed by a Dairy Farmer. Her occupation is "Accounts Clerk" and the industry in which she works is "Farming". If the same person were employed by a mine, the occupation would still be "Accounts Clerk" but the industry would be "Mining". A man working in the same mine might be a Mine Sampler - his occupation would be "Mine Sampler" or "Miner", but he also belongs to the Mining industry. Clearly, an industry may include a number of different occupations, and the same occupation may be found in many different industries.

Probing for better industry information: You will usually have to probe the respondent to get good information about the industry in which a person works. Some general tips for probing are given below, and specific examples of how to probe are given on page 34.

General Tips:

first ask the respondent the name of the business or establishment - if you abbreviate, write out the name in full in the comments box

if the name of the business is not known, or if the individual is self-employed, working on a farm, lands or cattlepost, or working for another individual/household rather than for a company or business, ask the respondent what kinds of goods are produced at the place where the person works - if you need more space, use the block at the top of column A15; see section I below for some examples of goods produced

if the business or workplace does not produce goods, ask what kinds of services are provided; see section 2 below for some examples of services provided

in recording the response, be sure to indicate whether the business is making or selling goods (if relevant); e.g. write "makes beer" or "sells beer", not just "beer"

if the above approaches do not work, ask the respondent what type of business the person works in and, if necessary, list some examples from section 3 below; a complete list of industry groups is given on page 35

1 Examples of Goods Produced: bread, traditional beer, biltong, textiles, tinned meat, glass, bricks, tiles, metal tools, shoes, leather bags, rope, books, baskets, clothing, fat cakes, brooms, newspapers, plastic pipes, kgotla chairs, boilers, mats, pots, wooden spoons, plastic pipes, vaccines, maize flour, milk, soap

2. Examples of Services Provided: repairing cars, repairing shoes, repairing watches, cleaning houses, guarding houses, taking care of children, typing, hawking goods, driving a taxi, cutting and styling hair, treating illnesses, teaching, selling property, selling airline tickets, renting videos, dry-cleaning clothes, selling beer, running a restaurant, running a shop

3. Examples of Types of Businesses or Economic Activities: building houses, building roads, wholesale trade, general retailer, hotel, restaurant, butchery, petrol station, airline, railway, selling cars, transporting goods, bank, insurance, real estate, prospecting,
[p.33]
architectural services, church, school, hospital, clinic, local government, brigades, traditional farming, fishing, hunting, blacksmith, traditional healing, performing at nightclubs, travel agency, employers' organisation, labour union, co-operative, electrical construction, law firm, accounting firm, market stall, dairy fanning, commercial farming.

In the sample questionnaire on page 26, James works for DeBeers. Since the name of the business is known, it is written in the unshaded area of column A15. Anne works on the lands· since she is engaged in the economic activity of fanning on the lands (as opposed to making baskets, for example), this information is included in the unshaded area. The question does not apply to Mimi or Molelo because they under 12 years old, nor to Anthony, because he is a student. Dashes are entered for these three. David drives his own taxi, so his industry can be recorded as "taxi driving". Thembe is retired, so a dash is entered in column A15 for her.

If the person is female, go to column A16 after completing column A15. If the person is male, put dashes m columns A16 - A21 and continue on to the next person listed in column A1.

Q: What was the main product, service or activity of [the person's] place of work?

The industry identifies the main kind of product produced or the main service provided by the establishment or the work unit in which the individual works. It is important to understand the difference between industry and occupation. An occupation summarizes the tasks performed by an individual who is working. The industry has to do with the products or services, or main functions or activities, of the workplace. For example, a woman may be an Accounts Clerk who is employed by a Dairy Farmer. Her occupation is "Accounts Clerk" and the industry in which she works is "Farming". If the same person were employed by a mine, the occupation would still be "Accounts Clerk" but the industry would be "Mining". A man working in the same mine might be a Mine Sampler - his occupation would be "Mine Sampler, but he also belongs to the Mining industry. Clearly, an industry may include a number of different occupations, and the same occupation may be found in many different industries.

If the respondent can give you the name of the company for which an individual works or the name of a self-employed person's business, then the Central Statistics Office will often be able to identify the industry from the company name. However, you should still try to find out what goods or services are produced by the company or individual. Record both the name of the company (abbreviate if necessary, then write out the name in full in the comments box) and the goods or services produced.

Probing for Better Industry Information: You will usually have to probe the respondent to get good information about the industry in which a person works. Some general tips for probing and the Botswana Standard Industrial Classification -- Revision 3 are given below:

General Tips:

- first ask the respondent what the name of the company or business is

- you should then ask the respondent what kinds of goods are produced at the place where the person works, especially if the name of the business is not known, or if the individual is self-employed, working on a farm, lands or cattle post, or working for another individual/household rather than for a company or business - if you need more space use the comments box; see below for some examples of goods produced

- if the business or workplace does not produce goods, ask what kinds of services are provided; see below for some examples of services provided

- in recording the response, be sure to indicate whether the business is making or selling goods (if relevant); e.g. write "makes beer" or "sells beer", not just "beer"

- if the above approaches do not work, ask the respondent what type of business the person works in and, if necessary, see more examples below.

1. Examples of goods produced: bread, traditional beer, biltong, textiles, tinned meat, glass, bricks, tiles, metal tools, shoes, leather bags, rope, books, baskets, clothing, fat cakes, brooms, newspapers, plastic pipes, kgotla chairs, boilers, mats, pots, wooden spoons, plastic pipes, vaccines, maize flour, milk, soap

2.

These questions apply only to persons aged 12 and years and over. If the person is less than 12 years of age, then when you reach column A16 you should put dashes in the shaded areas for columns A16-A31 and proceed to the next listed person in the household.

153. Column A25: Industry
Q. What was the main product, service, or activity of the respondent's place of work?
The industry identifies the main kind of product produced or the main service provided by the establishment or the work unit in which the individual works. It is important to understand the difference between industry and occupation. An occupation summarises the tasks performed by an individual who is working. The industry has to do with the products or services, or main functions or activities, of the workplace. For example, a woman may be an accounts clerk who is employed by a dairy farmer. Her occupation is "accounts clerk" and the industry in which she works is "dairy farming". If the same person was employed by a diamond mine, the occupation would still be "accounts clerk" but the industry would be "diamond mining". A man working in the same mine might be a mine sampler - his occupation would be "mine sampler, but he also belongs to the mining industry. Clearly, an industry may include a number of different occupations, and the same occupation may be found in many different industries.
If the respondent can give you the name of the company for which an individual works or the name of a self-employed person's business, then the Central Statistics Office will often be able to identify the industry from the company name using available records within the CSO. However, you should still also try to find out what goods or services are produced by the company or individual. Records both the name of the company (abbreviates if necessary, and then write out the name in full in the comments box) and the goods or services produced.

You will usually have to probe the respondent to get good information about the industry in which a person works. Some general tips for probing and the Botswana Standard Industrial Classification – Revision 3 are given below.

General Tips:

a. First ask the respondent what the name of the company or business is.
b. You should then ask the respondent what kinds of goods are produced at the place where the person works, especially if the name of the business is not known, or if the individual is self-employed, working on a farm, lands, or cattle-post, or working for another individual/household rather than for a company or business. If you need more space use the comments box. See below for some examples of goods produced.
c. If the business or workplace does not produce goods, ask what kinds of services are provided. See below for some examples of services provided.
d. In recording the response, be sure to indicate whether the business is making or selling goods (if relevant). For example, write "brews beer" or "sells beer", not just "beer".
e. If the above approaches do not succeed, ask the respondent what type of business the person works in and, if necessary, see more examples below.
i. Examples of goods produced
Bread, traditional beer, biltong, textiles, tinned meat, glass, bricks, tiles, metal tools, shoes, leather bags, rope, books, baskets, clothing, fat cakes, brooms, newspapers, plastic pipes, kgotla chairs, boilers, mats, pots, wooden spoons, vaccines, maize flour, milk, soap, etc.
ii. Examples of services provided
Repairing cars, repairing shoes, repairing watches, cleaning houses, guarding houses, taking care of children, typing, hawking goods, driving a taxi, cutting and styling hair, treating illnesses, teaching, selling property, selling airline tickets, renting videos, dry-cleaning clothes, selling beer, running a restaurant, running a shop, etc.
iii. Examples of types of businesses or economic activities

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


The following questions will only be asked of those persons who worked during the year preceding the date of the census
(September 1, 1959, to August 31, 1960)

[Applies to questions V - Z]


Question X - Class and place of activity where the occupation declared in Question V was exercised.

The purpose of asking for class and place of activity is to ascertain the sector of economic activity in which the person exercised the occupation declared in Question V. Therefore, there should be a distinction between these items of information. For example, a bookkeeper may exercise his or her occupation at a cattle ranch, a coffee plantation, a stone quarry, a textile factory, a radio equipment store, a private school, a construction company, etc. Depending on the case, the class of activity to be recorded will be cattle breeding, coffee growing, rock extraction, textile manufacturing, electric equipment trade, private education, civil construction, etc. Likewise, a physician might practice medicine at a private clinic, a public hospital or a cookie factory. Depending on the [p. 38] case, the doctor will declare Private medical clinic, Public health care or food industry as his or her class of activity.
It should also be kept in mind that the intention is not to find out whether the respondent works at large company or a small establishment, or if he or she exercises a technical or administrative function, is a subordinate or in authority. Thus a waiter in a small cafe and the manager of a large restaurant work in the same class of activity: Work in hotels, bars, cafes, etc. Likewise, a stonemason, an accountant and a driver, all three working in a construction company, although having different functions, are occupied in the same sector of industry - civil construction - which is therefore the class of activity to be recorded for all of them.
After obtaining the respondent's answer, the enumerator will consult the list of codes found on the side left of the questionnaire (Code 4 for Question X), and will record the code corresponding to the class of activity. The enumerator should write out the information in full only if the declaration and respective code are not shown on the list.
The objective of asking where (the place) the respondent exercises the activity is to obtain information that will enable the correct specification of class of activity. For this reason, the responses should characterize the activity carried out by the establishment or other organization where the person exercised the occupation declared in Question V, and not the address of this establishment, institution or organization.

Work and Income
For residents 10 years of age or older


Questions 6.46 to 6.48 refer to the main or only work that the person had on the week in reference.


6.47 - What was the main activity of the enterprise (business, firm, company, institution, organization, etc.) at your work?

This question intends to identify the main activity, i.e., the main purpose or main branch of the enterprise (business, firm, institution, company or entity) in which the person had worked on the week in reference.

For employees (with or without a contract, military or public service), record the main activity of the enterprise in which the person was hired or in which she/he works.

For employers and self-employed workers, record the main activity of the business.

For unpaid workers, record the main activity of the enterprise for which the person worked without payment.

For workers in the production of goods for their own consumption, record the main activity as dedicated to the purpose of producing food for own household consumption.

Question 6.46 asks about the occupation a person had on the week in reference, and now the following questions will ask about the activity. Do you know if the two are connected? Look carefully at the following explanation.

[page 250]

Attention!
The main duty or occupation is a characteristic related to a worker and the activity is a characteristic related to the enterprise where the person is employed or has his/her employees, as described before. Some occupations are typical of certain activities, but not exclusively. For example, a truck driver can perform his/her occupation in the city transportation system or in a different industry; a top-level nurse can perform his/her occupation in a hospital or a company outside of the area of health.

As a general rule for recording the activity

Record the activity of the enterprise (business, firm, institution, company or entity) to which the person is bound. In the case of an enterprise with more than one activity, the record must refer to the main activity, i.e., register only a single activity.

Examples:

  • A person works on a plantation of bananas and coffee, where the main activity is the cultivation of bananas. The record of the main activity of the enterprise should be banana plantation, even if the person's work was mainly on the cultivation of coffee;
  • A person is working in a factory of leather handbags and shoes, where the main activity is the production of bags. The record of the main activity of the enterprise should be manufacturing leather handbags, even if the person's work was mainly on the manufacture of leather shoes;


[page 251]

  • A person is working in an enterprise that developed computer programs and gave computer courses to companies, where the development of computer programs is the main activity. The record of the main activity of the enterprise should be the development of computer programs, even if the person's work was mainly linked to the courses given to companies;
  • A person is working in an enterprise that manufactured and had maintenance services for industrial machinery, where the manufacture of machinery is the main activity. The record of the main activity of the enterprise should be manufacturing industrial machinery, even if the person's work was mainly linked to maintenance services, and
  • A person is working in a federal government agency focused on the production of statistics. The record of the main activity of the enterprise should be the production of statistics in the federal public agency, even if the person develops their work, for example, in the printing area of the public agency.


In the case of activities carried out in educational endeavors, you must specify the level of education in which the enterprise works on (daycare, preschool, elementary, middle school, higher education). In the case of enterprises that had more than one level of education, record:
  • The level of education where the person works on, if she/he only has one job, and
  • The highest level of education of the enterprise, if the person works on an area that is linked to the whole enterprise.


[page 252]

Examples:
  • An elementary school teacher who worked at a school teaching classes from preschool to high school, the record should be basic education, since the person only worked at this level of education;
  • A janitor who worked in a preschool and elementary school that were in the same building, the record should be elementary school, and
  • A director of a school that offers vocational programs and higher education technology courses, the record should be vocational programs since he leads the vocational programs.


In the case of health areas the record must identify if the enterprise includes or not hospitalization.

In the case that an enterprise operates in different sectors, the record should be:
  • The main activity of the enterprise, in the case a person whose work was connected to the different sectors or activities of the enterprise, and
  • The activity of the enterprise in which a person works.


Examples:
  • A person with a partner operated an agribusiness enterprise which included the cultivation of sugar cane and sugar mill, but the latter was the main activity. The record of the main activity should be sugar mill
;

[page 253]

  • A person was employed as cane farmer in an agribusiness enterprise which included the cultivation of sugar cane and sugar mill. The record of the main activity must be cultivation of sugar cane because the person exercised his/her work on the farm, and
  • A person was employed as a pump operator at an oil refinery owned by a company dedicated to various other activities (extraction of petroleum, fertilizer manufacturing, etc.). The record of the main activity should be oil refinery, because the person exercised his/her work in an establishment of the company dedicated to petroleum refining.


Attention to the following situations:
a) a person is employed in a business that works for other companies, record the activity of the enterprise in which the person works, and not the business where the services were provided.


  • If a person is employed in a company of cleaning services in a public agency, the record must be the activity of the company in which he/she was employed, as an aid;
  • If a person is employed in a surveillance and security business and works on a bank vigilance, the record should be surveillance and security services;


[page 254]

  • A person was hired as a farm labor to work temporarily on a coffee crop, the record should be farm labor, and
  • A person was hired temporarily by a contractor as a telephone assistant, the record must be the activity of the company in which she/he had employment, i.e. temporary contract.


b) a person who worked for an enterprise that provided services to other enterprise, the record must be the activity of the enterprise in which the person is hired, and not the location where the service is provided.


Examples:

  • A person working at a company responsible for a coffee shop in a bookstore. The record of the main activity of the enterprise should be coffee shop, even if it operates within the bookstore;
  • A person working in an enterprise specializing in services for agricultural pest control. The record of the main activity of the enterprise services must be agricultural pest control, even if the person develop his work on farms, and
  • A person working in an enterprise that specializes in planting and harvesting agricultural products. The record of the main activity of the enterprise services should be planting and harvesting agricultural products, even if the person develop his/her work on the farm.


[page 255]

Attention!
Do not register company's name, initials, acronyms, etc.

It is essential that the record of the work place clarifies the purpose of the business, firm, company, institution or entity. Thus, you should avoid generic records. See the examples below.

Avoid vague terms such as: factory, office, workshop, etc.


Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Column 17: Industry. Industry means the type of business, establishment, office, organization, company, institution, etc., where the person practices the previously-mentioned occupation.

Write down this information only for those who have an occupation recorded in the previous column (Column 16) and who belong to either group "OC" (Employed) or "CE" (Unemployed).

As in the case of occupation, try to record as specifically as possible, avoiding unclear terms, the type of establishment in which the person works or worked (if unemployed). So avoid terms like workshop, office, store, factory, business, etc., and instead specify in the following way: shoe factory, radio repair shop, electronics warehouse, carpet store, air transport company, etc.

Avoid using terms that specify only the name of the establishment, like "La Violeta" factory, "Casa Fénix", etc.

If the person is a fiscal, semifiscal, municipal, or public service employee, on the other hand, record the proper name of the ministerial division, government agency, office, or service in which the person being enumerated practices their profession.

If a person practices the same profession in more than one business or industry, the type of establishment from which greater compensation is received should be recorded. For example, in the case of a commercial accountant who does the books for a glass factory, a store, and a transportation company, receiving the greatest income from the glass factory, this [the glass factory] should be recorded as the industry.

If the person practices their profession in a company that carries out two or more different industrial activities, the industrial activity to which the person is directly tied should be recorded, as long as this is a main, not a secondary, activity. [p. 40] For example, in the case of a company that has a refrigerator and a furniture factory, an employee's industry should be recorded as refrigerator factory or furniture factory, depending on whether the employee works in the first or second of these.

For domestic workers, "family house" or "community house" should be recorded.

8. Industry. People who are fully 15 years old or above with an occupation should declare the industry he/she is engaged in. The working population refers to those who derive an income from a certain kind of social labor or business. China's employment policy is one of [pg. 24] "combining employment through the introduction of labor department, employment through voluntary organization, and self -employment under the state's overall planning and guidance". Anybody who gets a job through any of the three means, whether he/she is employed in a unit of the state or collective ownership or self-employed and whether the job is a regular or a temporary one, should be considered as employed persons. They include:

(1) Those people who hold a regular job at the census reference time. They may be working at their posts, being away from work due to illness or injury, away on holiday, temporarily recuperating, doing temporary study, undergoing labor-reform, or being temporarily prevented from working as a result of bad weather, technical trouble, seasonal work stoppage or enterprise readjustment, However, they do not include such person who left work to study full time at institutions of higher learning, radio and television universities. Retired workers and staff who still participate in social labor one month before the reference time and earn an extra income which together with his/her pension makes up to 100% of the original pay should be regarded as working people. Retired cadres should circle number 6 "retired or resigned" under the topic of non-working people.

(2) Those who do not have a regular job. Anyone with a temporary job on June 30th, 1982, and have participated in social labor for an accumulative period of 16 days in June should be regarded as employed. Their occupations may be qualified with the word "temporary" when filling in the form. For example, temporary bricklayers, etc.


Under the topic of industry, employees should fill in the full name of his/her establishment (including private ones). The name of the establishment should be an independent accounting unit whether of state ownership or collective ownership. When referring to a state-owned complex or large scale factory/mine (e.g. a company, an associated plant etc.), the name of the secondary unit (e.g. a factory, an affiliated factory etc.) should be made clear. For instance, X X Iron Works of X X Iron and Steel Company, X X Poultry/Eggs Department of X X Agriculture-Industry-Commerce Joint Enterprise. For commune members, the industry should be recorded as: X X Agricultural Production Team, X X Forestry Production Team and X X Animal Husbandry Production Team. Self-employed laborer should put down the same name marked on their signboard, e.g. "Wang's Teahouse". If there is not a signboard, the form should be filled in with the business they are engaging in, e.g. "private teastand", "private vegetable [pg. 25] vendor", etc. In the case of an individual or an enterprise doing two or more kinds of work concurrently, the work on which most of the time is spent is accepted as the industry.

10. Industry of Working Population -- reported by working respondents aged 15 and over.

Working population refers to people who are working and paid for their labor or obtaining operation revenue. Our state policy of employment is: "under the guidance of state plan, seeking employment through the following three channels: recommended by labor department, organizing a work entity voluntarily, or self-employed." Accordingly, working population includes all employed people obeying the above policy, regardless of occupation characteristics (i.e. permanent or temporary job) or ownership of work unit (e.g. state ownership, people ownership, collective ownership, private ownership, joint ownership, direct foreign investment, or self-employed). Specifically, working population refers to:

1. At the time of Census, those who have regular jobs, including those who work as well as those who are temporarily not working due to the following reasons: sickness, vacations, temporary study, working in the labor camps, bad weather, technical breakdown, seasonally out-of-production, optimal transformation of corporate. However, do not include those who are completely away from work and study full-time in the colleges/universities and Television Broadcasting Universities (full-time). Retired workers, who still participated in social activities and were reimbursed for their works a month before the time of Census, should still be considered as working/employed persons.

2. Those, who do not have regular jobs but who have part-time jobs on June 30, 1990 and work more than 16 days (inclusive) in June, should be considered as working/employed persons.

Occupations of the employed persons should be the full name of the place where they work. State owned institutions, collective owned institutions, joint-ventured institutions and private institutions should be those with independent accounting system. For those conglomerates or large factories and mines (e.g. companies, headquarters), clearly state the names of the secondary units. For example, xx Steel Company xx iron-making factory, xx company xx branch, xx united corporate xx retail store.

For those who are temporarily not working due to seasonal out-of-production or optimal transformation of the corporate, fill in the names of previous institutions. For those who work in labor camps, fill in the names of labor camps.

Farmers should not simply fill in broad term "agriculture". They should report the nature of institutions or organizations where they work, or the detailed activities in which they participate. For those who work in the town-owned companies or institutions or labor organizations, fill in the names of the institutions or organizations, whether they are full-time, part-time, or contracted, and whether they contract any land. For those who contract land, orchard, fish-pond, or mountain forest or engage in other economic activities based on household as a primary production unit, fill in the projects that this household primarily contract and engage in. For example, for those who contract land, fill in "crop production"; for those who contract fish-pond, fill in "plain-water fishery". For those who contract multiple projects, fill in the primary project. For those employed/working persons living in the households who sublease the contracted land to others and engage in other economic activities, their occupations are the one that individuals hold longest in the year, and then we can decide their industries according to their occupations.

For Individual workers, industries can be filled in the names of signs, if any; for example, xxx teahouse. If there are no any signs, fill in the economic activities in which individual workers engage.

For those who work at the establishment units and individual workers, if they engage in one primary activity as well as other activities, fill in the activity in which they engage longest.

Part One. Personal Records

The following questions reflect economic characteristics of the population.

R17 through R24 apply to persons who are 15 years or older.

R19. Industry
It refers to the type of production and business activities or social economic activities that a person engages with. It should be filled in with detailed company name, types of product or business domain. This question should be answered by persons who replied 1 or 2 for R17.
China currently defines 16 industries that include 92 major categories. Each major category has sub-categories.
The 5th Population Census Enumeration uses unit of industrial activity to distinguish different industries. Therefore, each census-registered unit should be a unit of industrial activity. Unit of industrial activity is defined by 1) a geographic location for the purpose of at least one economic activity; 2) independent organization of production, management, and business activities; and 3) independent accounting and evaluation - this is the most important criterion.
If one geographic location has two or more types of economic activity, or the same economic activity happens at various locations, as long as each unit has accounting capacity, they should be considered as separate units of industrial activity.
Closely associated to the unit of industrial activity is the notion of legal unit. A legal unit must demonstrate three characteristics: 1) established legally with a name, an organizational institution, and a geographic location, and capable of independently fulfilling civil responsibility; 2) independently possess and utilize (or being authorized to utilize) assets, capable of assuming outstanding debt and signing contracts; and 3) independent accounting and capable of compiling balance sheet - this is the most important criterion. The unit of industrial activity is interior to the legal unit.
Persons who work for corporate, enterprise, government, social organizations, and their subsidiaries should report the full name of their employer organization or the primary domain of business. Please note:

Write down the full name of employer organization
Specify the domain of business
For confidential units, use their publicly-known names
For self-employed persons, use the types of business they engaged with
For individuals who do not have a fixed, regular job, put down the types of work they have done in the previous week.
For rural people, do not just put "agriculture", specify the types of agricultural work.
For rural people, as long as he/she has a relatively fixed job in town or village enterprise, put down that job.
If persons who work two or more different jobs in the previous work, choose the one with longer working days.
For persons who are unsure of their jobs or types of industry, be patient and help them to identify.

Section C. Economic characteristics

This section should be filled out only for persons 10 years old or older.
[Applies to questions 14 - 19]


Question No. 16. Activity of the company

[Below the text is a form.]

Fill out this question for persons 10 years old or older who belong in the alternatives 1, 2 or 3 of question 14.

Write down clearly and without writing in the shaded space, the activity of the business, factory, exploitation, or establishment in which a person did their principal job, craft or profession.

To fill out this question correctly take into account the following criteria:

If the company where a person works their principal occupation has many branches, agencies or establishments that do different activities that which the establishment does where the person works will be written down. So, if someone worked in the store of a company that produces dresses, "wholesale commerce of dresses" will be written down.

[p. 53]

If an establishment does many activities, write down only the principal activity.

Do not accept vague responses like "exploitation", "business", "company", "factory", "agency", or simply write down the name of a product or company. When they give you this type of response ask for more details.

Examples of correct responses are: livestock worker, exploitation of sugar cane, coal mine, wooden furniture factory, retail furniture commerce, passenger transportation.

F3. Ask these questions to all persons 10 years old or older


38. What does the company or establishment where [the respondent] works or worked produce or what activity is done?

Read the question word for word and write in the lines a and b, the key or most important words and phrases that describe the activity of the company where the person works. Because of this take into account the following considerations:

[Below the text is a form.]

This question makes reference to the activity which a company (factory, office, workshop or farm) does where a person works or worked and not the occupation they have in it.

This activity is determined by the goods produced or the service rendered collectively; for example: commerce, transportation, fabrication of leather wallets, tourist services.

This question requires an inquiry, since the responses of persons can be diverse and not refer to the activity of the company where they work, but rather to the occupation that they carry out.

If a person is a worker for their own account, or has a business in their house or manages a profession or trade independently, you should write down the activity that the person does as if it belonged to a company.

In order to give a clear and exact description of the activity, you should indicate a general and a specific function. For example: repair of electric domestic appliances, production of sweaters, production of homemade candy, sale of clothes, business of real estate.

[p. 172]

Let us look at two examples:

If a lawyer works in his profession independently, the activity is "provision of lawyer services" or "independent lawyer"; but if he is employed by a company like Ecopetrol, the activity that you should put is "refining of petroleum".

Let us suppose that in your route you find yourself with the following case: one person who responds to you "I am a zoo technician in Colanta"' another who says, "I am a boss of sales in Colanta"; another person, "I drive a truck in Colanta" and finally one who responds "I clean and serve drinks in Colanta".

You should ask these persons what they do in Colanta. That is like, for all the activities of the companies where they work "process of milk" or "producer of lactose products".

Occupational Characteristics

Ask these questions only to persons 12 years old or older.

This part of the form joins many interesting aspects relative to the occupation of the individuals. By means of these six questions it will be able to be known where and in what the Costa Rican population works, how many are employees, employers or exclusively students; how many women work only in the house, and much more information.

Logically to arrive at obtaining comparable information, all the enumerators should follow the norms and established definitions.

This question is intimately related to the previous, you should write down the branch of activity that corresponds to the occupation written down in it, that is to say, the type of industry, business, institution, agricultural operation, public dependence, etc., in which the person did their occupation. Write down expressions like: car repairs, shoe factory, Ministry of Government Work, local store, bar, magistrate, hospital, bank, Ministry of Health, shoe store, pharmacy, etc. Here also you should avoid generic terms such as: workshop, factory, government, commercial establishment, etc., which say nothing about what is wanted to be known.

When it concerns a commercial establishment, specify if it is "Wholesale" or "Retail".

If a person works for a company that manages more than one activity, write down the one that you are informed is most important.

Third Block

Only for persons 12 years old or older


Question 16: Industry

The interest of this question is to be able to determine the principal economic activity of the place where the person works. This permits, at the same time, knowing the composition of the employed according to the branch of economic activity.

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

For this question you should investigate and write down in detail, the class of products or services that the company, business or farm principally produces or sells for which the person works the principal job. If the activity consists of a service to another company, for example, service of guard in a bank, the branch of economic activity that should be written down is that which corresponds to the establishment or company that hired the person, and not to the company where the service is done. In the example it would be "private guard" and not "financer" or "bank".

Generic terms should be avoided like workshop, factory, store, etc, for which we will give some examples of incorrect and correct forms of writing down this response.

Record what the industry, business, estate, plot of land, institute, public office, etc. where the person carried out the occupation indicated in question 20 produces or what it does.

If the establishment performs more than one activity, record the activity that the informant carries out.

If a person has as an occupation making cheese and the place where they work is a livestock ranch within which a cheese factory operates, what you should record as the industry is cheese factory.

For those people who perform services as washerwomen or domestic employees in private homes, record private home.

[p. 53]

For people who work in public organizations, they should specify the activity that they carry out and not the name of the institution. Remember that an institution can include various industries. Record the activity in which the person carried out the occupation indicated.

For the person whose occupation is carried out in the street while walking, record peddling of (newspapers, fruits, vegetables, candy, etc….).

Avoid general and imprecise data that don't clearly indicate the industry of the establishment where the informant works.

Step 14: Continue with section 4, information about the population / D: Economic characteristics (annex, pages 41-45)

[A copy of section 4D of the census questionnaire is omitted here.]

Tips:

  • Follow the sequential order of the questions.
  • Remember that the questions are for people 5 years old and older.
  • (A)The week of reference will be Sunday the 21st to Saturday the 27th of November.
  • Question 27 serves to identify people who did some activity for an income or not.
  • (B)Take into account the leaps of questions 27 and 28.
  • Question 29 is written literally, the activity of the business or company in which the interviewed person works or worked.
  • If the informant mentions having more than one job, you should register the one that he/she considers the principal one.
  • Question 30 is written very literally, what does the interviewed person do or what he/she did where he/she works/worked
  • Question 31 indicates the dependency relation that the person has in the place where he/she works.
  • Question 32 registers the total number of worked hours, at his/her principal work, in the past week or the last week that he/she worked.
  • In question 33, register if the activity that the person does is inside or outside the household.
  • If the person does more than one activity, as for example weave wool clothing in the household and leave to sell in the streets; for the registry of question 33 priority will be given to the production, therefore you will mark x in code 1 (within the home).

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Columns 28 - 32: Information on economic activity
The information collected on economic activity status in these columns during the last
12 months include:

a. whether the person was engaged in productive work during the reference period
b. reason for not being engaged in productive work during the reference period (for those who were not so engaged)
d. major types of occupation
d. major product or service of the establishment or industry
e. employment status in the main activity
Column 30 – 32: For those who have been engaged in productive work during most of the last months (column 28 code 1), unemployed with previous work experience (column 29 code 02) and for who had work but did not work during the last 12 months (column 29 code 03).

Column 31: Major product or service of the establishment

To record the major product or service for a person under consideration, first enquire a person where he/she works and then the type of products or service produced or given by the establishment.

An establishment definition is relaxed here in order to capture those do not have fixed places, like; micro enterprises who operates on street side or open markets. For example, a person is working in his/her residence house weaving, tailor service, selling tella or katikala, etc., even though the work is not in organized manner, considered as an establishment and the product or service is recorded in this column.

As explained under column 30, whenever we face with enterprise producing different products or services, the major one will be recorded. For example, a tobacco factory produces matches as an additional product. In such case, we record cigarette since it is the major product. Similar products take same code irrespective of the owner of the factory/ establishment (private or public) or mode of production (modern or traditional). Details of some products/ service are given below.

Farm products; cereal, vegetables, chat, coffee, etc. (sometimes together with draught animals).

Livestock; cow, ox, camel, sheep, goat, poultry, etc. (in some cases together with vegetables on small plots)

Farm and livestock products; producing both products.

Agricultural service; crop and livestock extension service, providing agricultural machineries.

Hotel; bed room service (can serve food and drinks)

Bar; without room service.

Tella (local drink) house; place where the local drink tella served.

Teji (local drinks) house; place where the local drink teji is served.

Education sector administration; service activities in the ministry of education or regional bureaus or woreda offices.

Elementary school; teachers or administration staff in the school.

Agricultural sector administration; service activities in the ministry of agriculture or regional bureaus or woreda offices.

Types of major products or services recorded in column 31 are listed below. The list is presented here to give some idea on types of products or services registered under this column.

For skilled unemployed persons, the type of major products or service they used to work in will be recorded. Note that: Do not ask the organizations or institutions they served in, enquire only the major products or service produced or rendered by the organizations or institutions in which they employed.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


46. Column 12: What work does this person do? And for whom and where does he do it? This is perhaps the most difficult part of the Schedule and the answer which you record for these questions should give an exact description of the work each person is engaged upon at the time of the Census. The instructions given in paragraphs 47 to 64 are designed to help you give accurate descriptions of the work which each person in your Area may do. For this reason, they are divided into several different sections according to the various types of agriculture which are practiced in the Colony, and some of the various occupations which may be found in township and urban areas. Your Supervisor will tell you which of these sections relate particularly to your area and you should use these as a guide for the simplest and most concise way of describing a person's occupation.


Agricultural Occupations
47. In Fijian Village: A Fijian, living in his village and sharing in the communal life of the
village at the time of the enumeration, should be described as "Villager" with a further qualification according to whether or not he produces some particular crop or commodity for sale. Depending on which produce he sells, he may, therefore, be described in the following terms:

(a) Villager, with no cash crop.
(b) Villager, cuts copra for sale.
(c) Villager, grows sugarcane for sale.
(d) Villager, grows bananas for sale.
(e) Villager, grows rice for sale.
(f) Villager, grows vegetables for sale.
(g) Villager, raises cattle for sale.

In a description such as (f), there is no need to specify which vegetables are being grown; the
word "vegetables" can be used to cover dalo, kumalas, yams, tapioca, potatoes, yaqona, tobacco, etc. Similarly, if a man raises cattle or pigs or goats, either for sale of the animals for meat or for the sale of their milk, cream or ghee, a description such as (g) will suffice.
48. Apart from Fijian Villagers, the majority of people engaged in agriculture (including Fijian "galala") cultivate one of the two main crops of the Colony -- coconuts and sugarcane and one or other of these will constitute their principal crop or activity. In addition to these, there will be some persons whose principal activity is growing bananas or shipping bananas; some whose principal crop will be rice or other grain crops, and some will grow various types of vegetables and fruits for sale. Some may be engaged principally in raising cattle or pigs or goats, others in dairy farming. In many cases you will find that people engage in more than one of these various activities, but in describing the work done by a man engaged in agriculture, you should pick out first his principal crop or activity, the one to which he devotes the greater part of his time and which he considers is the more important to him as a source of income. If his principal crop is either coconuts or sugar-cane, you should then ask whether he cultivates any other crop or produce which he sells and which he ranks as next in importance to his principal crop. Such will constitute his subsidiary crop.
49. Coconuts as Principal Crop: On a coconut plantation or estate there will usually be an owner or a lessee or a manager, one (or more) overseer or foreman, book-keeper, timekeeper or weight-checker, together with wage-earning labourers and piece-workers. For each of these people, the answer to the question "for whom and where do they work?" is "on copra estate" and some descriptive terms for the work each may do have been suggested above. If you cannot specify exactly what work the wage-earning labourers do - such as "vate attendant on copra estate" or "kiln attendant on copra estate" - they should be described as "worker on copra estate".
50. If there is some subsidiary crop cultivated on a coconut plantation or estate, or if cattle or pigs or goats are raised, either for sale of the animals for meat or for the sale of their milk, cream or ghee, you should indicate such facts in your description by adding "with bananas" or "with rice" or "with vegetables" or "with cattle", etc., after the words "on copra estate".
51. Sugar-Cane as Principal Crop: A sugar-cane farm or estate is usually owned or leased by one person, who may employ other members of his family, or persons not related to him, to help him cultivate the land. The term "cane farmer" should be used only for the person who owns or leases the land on which sugar-cane is grown; other persons working on such a cane farm should be described as "worker on cane farm" (even if the land is owned or leased by a father or older brother) unless there is some specific description such as "foreman" or "overseer" or "cane-cutter" (provided he is not a registered cane grower) for the work which they are doing at the time of the Census.
52. When some subsidiary crop or produce is cultivated on a cane farm or estate, you should indicate this by adding the words "with rice'" or "with vegetables" or "with cattle", etc., after your initial description.
53. All Other Principal Crops: For persons engaged in all other forms of cultivation, where neither coconuts nor sugar-cane constitutes the principal crop, the answer to the question "for whom and where does he work?" should show clearly which is the principal crop or commodity produced from the land, whether it be bananas or pineapples or other fruits, rice or maize or vegetables such as dalo, tapioca, yams, kumalas, tobacco, yaqona, etc. etc. A description such as "rice farmer" or "banana grower" should be used only for persons who own or lease the land on which these crops are grown. Failing any more specific description of their work, persons employed to assist in the cultivation or harvesting of such crops should be described as "workers on rice farm" or "worker on banana plantation", etc. etc.
54. Dairy Farming: The answer to the second part of Question 12 for all people engaged in dairying is "on dairy farm" , and you should state whether each person concerned is the owner or manager or foreman or overseer or book-keeper or herdsman or dairy-hand, etc. etc. Failing any more specific description for a person in paid employment on a dairy farm, he may be described as "worker on dairy farm". If a dairy farm is run in conjunction with a butter factory, you should distinguish between workers in each of these; "in butter factory" being the place of work for all people employed in the butter factory as distinct from those working on the dairy farm.
55. Cattle, Stock and Poultry Raising: Apart from persons working on dairy farms, there may be some who are engaged principally in the raising of cattle, or horses or pigs or goats or poultry, either as the owners or managers of herds or estates or farms, or as paid employees, tending the animals. In your description of their work, you should indicate which animals are their principal concern by stating whether their place of work is "on cattle farm" (or "on cattle estate"), "on pig farm", "on poultry farm", etc. etc.
56. Forestry and Sawmilling: Persons engaged in logging or felling trees, or in cutting firewood, may be described simply as "logger of trees" or "feller of trees" or "fire-wood cutter" respectively. People who haul the logs from the forest to the sawmill may be described as "hauler of logs", or, depending on whether bullocks or tractors are used for hauling, as "bullock-driver hauling logs" or "tractor-driver hauling logs'.
57. If a man works at a sawmill, you should state whether he is the owner or manager or foreman or overseer or book-keeper or sawyer or benchman or other paid worker at the sawmill, "at sawmill" being the answer to the question "for whom and where does he work?"
58. Mining and Quarrying: The place of work for people engaged in mining will be either "in gold mine" or "in manganese mine", and whichever is applicable should be added to your description of the work each person does. A person employed in quarrying, either for road metal or for building stone, should be shown simply as "quarry-man".
Occupations in Townships and Urban Areas
59. Industrial and Commercial occupations. For persons engaged in either making or repairing or selling goods, you should state their particular trade or occupation and the name of the shop or factory or company which employs them, adding where necessary the nature of its business. This is the general rule to be followed for people in all business or commercial organizations or offices.
60. Just before the Census, persons working for the South Pacific Sugar Mills Limited, either on their estates or in their mills or on their railways, will be given a card showing their name, and their "occupational classification" which will consist of a number and a descriptive term for the work they do. When you are recording such a person on a schedule, you should copy the "occupational classification" directly from the card, adding the initials "S.P.S.M. Ltd" after it.
61. Government Departments: For persons working in the various departments of Government you should record their exact title or position and the name of the department or branch of the administration in which they are working.
62. It is only necessary for occupations to be given for people aged 15 years or over. Where children are attending school, this should be stated in this column. If a child is too young to attend school, you should draw a line diagonally across this Column to indicate this. If someone aged 15 years or over is still going to school, write "student".
63. Some women aged 15 years or over may have jobs, such as clerks, and will, therefore, be described as explained above. Most women, however, look after their homes and children and their occupation should be given as "home duties". A similar description should be given to any daughters of the household who do not attend school and whose only occupation is to assist their mother in these household duties.
64. General: Since it is not possible to detail all the classes of work which you may encounter in your Area, the following are some general rules for your guidance, particularly in those instances which have not been specifically mentioned in the foregoing paragraphs.
(a) It is important to answer both parts of Question 12, so as to provide an adequate description of the work which each person does.
(b) Except for a man who owns or leases land for cultivation, the work which you record for each person should be the work they are engaged upon at the time of the Census.
(c) If a person is doing more than one job, you should record the one to which he devotes the greater part of his day, the only exceptions to this being those agricultural occupations mentioned in paragraphs 48 to 52.
(d) Persons who have retired from some occupation or profession, either because of age or illness, should be described as "Retired". Anyone who has suffered a serious injury (such as losing an arm or leg) and cannot work, should be recorded as, "Incapacitated through injury"
(e) If a person is doing no particular work at the time of the Census and is neither retired from some occupation or profession, nor a pensioner, nor an inmate of an institution, you should record him as "unemployed". (This may apply to some Fijians who are living away from their villages and to other persons who perform casual work from time to time but are not actually so engaged at the time of the enumeration.)
(f) Amongst women, the term "Home Duties" should be used only for those who look after their homes and children, or for daughters or elderly female relatives who may assist them. A servant living in (or away from) a private household should be described as "Domestic Servant". For all other women in paid employment the rules (a) to (e) above apply.

Question 16 - Industry

166. You have described the person's own job, which is his occupation. Next we have to consider the kind of business, product or service produced by the worker and his/her fellow workers. For example, a person may be a typist working for a mining company, in a building contractor's office, in a hotel, for a bus company, in a department store, for the Government or for a law firm. The person's occupation is 'typist' but the product, business or service is different in each case.

167. If the person is employed as a cash worker, ask: "Who does this person work for?" or "Where does this person work?"

168. Enter the name of the company, firm or organization for which he or she works.

169. Some large companies make, produce or sell more than one kind of product and the same is true of large Departments of Government. In such cases state the branch or section for which the person works. For example, a large company like Carpenters engages in many kinds of activity and you should distinguish the branch for which the person works by writing 'Carpenters Shipping', 'Carpenters Travel', or as the case may be.

170. In the same way large Government Departments at the PWD engage in different kinds of work and you should distinguish this by writing 'PWD roads', 'PWD mech. workshops', 'PWD water', or as the case may be, but not just 'PWD'.

171. If the person is self-employed, works in a family business or has done other work, ask: "What is this person's trade or business?"

172. Write in two or three words about what kind of business or activity is carried on -- what is made or produced -- what services are provided -- what goods are sold -- what crops are grown.

173. Be precise. Avoid vague answers. Good answers, for example, are 'shoe repair', 'making furniture', 'bus company', 'retail store'. Bad answers are 'repair', 'factory', 'business', 'private enterprise', 'self-employed' -- we must know what is repaired, what the factory makes, what kind of business, what sort of private enterprise, what the self-employed makes or sells.

138. The next set of questions, D14 to D17, apply to all persons born in 1981 or before. Look back at the year of birth you have entered for each person. For those born 1982-1996 write 'N/A' for question D14[a] and leave the rest of the column [D14-D17] blank.

139. Questions D14-D17 are concerned with how people provide for themselves, how they make their living. It is restricted to persons 15 years of age and over.

140. In the week before census night, almost everyone in Fiji will have done something to provide for himself or herself. It is your job to discover and record what each person did.

141. Ask the questions as they are set out here and on the questionnaire and talk about each member of the household until you understand what he or she did in the way of making a living last week. Make entries on the questionnaire only when you have the picture clear in your mind.


Question D14 - Type of activity last week

142. Question 14[a]
Ask,
Did this person do any work for money last week?

Money work here means:
A wage and salary job.
Business, shop, taxi/carrier business, repair shop
Grow things for sale
Raise animals for sale
Catch fish, collect shells for sale


[p.26]

Provide services for money


You should write 'M' against money work. Include also persons who had a job but were either sick or on leave or did not attend work for some other reason.

For persons who did not work for money last week write 'NO' in this box.


145. For those persons responding with 'M' in D14[a], you should also complete

D14[b] Number of days worked last week.
D14[c] Did the person do any subsistence work as well
D15 Describe the task performed last week.
D16 The type of activity, service or product produced at place of work.
D17 How was the person paid

weekly wages
fortnightly/monthly salary
by sale of crops, livestock
for job done
unpaid family worker


Question D16 - Industry

156. You have described the person's own job, which is his occupation. We have next to consider the kind of business, product or service produced by the worker and his/her fellow workers. For example, a person may be a typist working for

a mining company
in a building contractors office
in a hotel
for a bus company
in a department store
for the government


[p.34]

for a firm of lawyers.


The person's occupation is 'typist' but the product, business or service is different in each case.

157. Ask,
'Who does this person work for?'
or 'Where does this person work?'

Enter the name of the company, firm or organization for which he or she works.

Some large companies make, produce or sell more than one kind of product and the same is true of large departments of government. In such cases state the branch or section for which the person works.


For example, a large company like Carpenters engages in many kinds of activity and you should distinguish the branch for which the person works by writing - 'Carpenters Shipping', - Carpenters Travel', - or as the case may be.

Similarly, large government departments such as the PWD engage in different kinds of work and you should distinguish this by writing - 'PWD roads', - 'PWD mechanical workshops', 'PWD Water' or -as the case may be, but not just 'PWD'.

[p.35]

158. If the person is self-employed, or works in a family business.
Ask,
'What is this person's trade or business?'

159. Write in two or three words what kind of business or activity is carried on:

what is made or produced
what services are provided
what goods are sold
what crops are grown.


160. Be precise. Avoid vague answers.
For example:

Good Answers--Bad Answers
'shoe repair'--'repair'
'making furniture'--'factory'
'bus company'--'business'
'retail store'--'private enterprise'
'car repairs'--'self-employed'


We must know what is repaired, what the factory makes, what kind of business, what sort of private enterprise, what the self-employed person makes or sells.

[5] Employment
Employment statistics are annual statistics providing data by region on the population's economic activity and employment.

Occupation
The role of persons working at a similar job, which is based on the content of the work made for income acquisition purposes and in some cases on the education completed by the person.
In the employment statistics, the classification of occupations is based on occupational titles derived from various registers and given by employers to employees, which titles are classified into different occupational codes mainly according to industry, education, occupational status and sector. The occupational title is sometimes also called a job title, function or official title. Some of the occupational codes of the employment statistics (cf. industry-specific occupational codes with occupational titles) are derived already classified from the statistics on wages and salaries. Statistics Finland's national classification of occupations valid at each time is used for describing occupation. One occupational group can contain several occupational titles. On the other hand, the same occupational title can be classified into several occupational groups.
Occupations are produced for employed persons primarily based on the person's main employment relationship in the last week of the year. The data are collected from several different sources, such as the registers of employment relationships of central and local government, statistics on wages and salaries, and data collections from enterprises.

Question 12 - Unpaid workers who help another person in his/her job
It may sometime happen that certain persons - above all, women - work helping another person in his/her job without receiving any pay for their work. These persons should answer "yes" to question 12, even if they only work as such on a part- time basis.
This question concerns, for example, the wife of a farmer who participates in farm work, or the wife or daughter of a shopkeeper who spends a few hours a day at the shop as a salesperson or at the cash register.
Question 13 - Household employee. This category is not intended for persons who are self- employed and work at home (craftsmen, seamstresses, milliners).

Such is the case, for example, of certain designers for fashion magazines, persons who work for design houses, etc.
If these persons have several employers at the same time, indicate in question 15 which is their principal employer.

P13 Type of activity: questions are to be asked of only persons aged 7 years or older; and refer to the seven days before census night


P15: Industry -- In what kind of industry was (name) mainly working? (For unemployed, last kind of work) describe and refer to appendix 6 for code list.

Industry refers to the main economic activity of the establishment where the person/ respondent works; or if unemployed his/her last work or job. Establishment applies not only to big enterprises such as Pioneer Biscuit Factory, Ghana Commercial Bank, etc. but also to the small ones as well, e.g. Kwesi Nimo's farm, place of petty trading in market or Fati's Kiosk "under the tree." Note that it is the economic activity Fati carries on under the tree that is to be specified.

[p. 45]

The following examples may help you understand what industry is about and what you must write or describe in the spaces which have been provided. Code according to appendix 6.

a. A carpenter who makes window frames is employed by a firm which build houses, the major economic activity you must write down is construction of houses, not window frames, since houses are produced by the establishment where he/she work.

b. A carpenter gives Novotel as the name of the establishment where he/she worked. You must write catering or hotel services as the major economic activity of the establishment.

c. The major economic activity of all educational institutions e.g. University of Ghana, Ghana Secondary, Government Technical School, is education even though the persons employed in these institutions may be doing different types of jobs.

d. For a craftsman who is employed by a construction company which is undertaking a contract with an educational institution, you must write down building construction but not education.

e. A self-employed who lays blocks is classified under construction.


Note that the answer you put down must be the same for all persons employed by the same establishment or in the case of a multi-purpose establishment a department of it.

Examples of such multi-purpose establishments are City and Municipal Assemblies, SSNIT, UNILEVER, etc. A Metropolitan Assembly, for instance, may have the following functions: local administration, education services, health services, etc. Similarly, UNILEVER, may have departments with the following as the main economic activity - wholesale or retail trade, repair of motor vehicles, transports services, textile printing, etc.

Thus for a respondent employed by such big establishments, you must record the main economic activity of the particular branch/department in that establishment where the respondent worked.

Another example is the market place. Different economic activities are carried on at such places, for example cloth selling, food selling, dressmaking/tailoring/embroidering, corn milling, chop bar activities, hairdressing/barbering, etc. You must specify the economic activity of the respondents at the market.

Below are examples of some economic activities that fall under agriculture, forestry, trade, and hotels and restaurants.
Agriculture and Animal Husbandry -- Growing of crops -- food crops and cash crops; cereals and grains; vegetables and horticultural products; fruits, nuts, coffee, cocoa and others; harvesting, weeding and other activities.
Rearing of animals -- sheep, cattle, poultry, pigs, hunting and trapping of game.

Forestry -- Planting and growing of trees; conserving of forest and forestry management; logging and felling of trees, charcoal burning, etc..

Gathering wild forest materials -- snails, mushrooms, firewood and charcoal burning.

Trade
a. Sale of fuel, maintenance and repair of motor
Vehicles and motorcyles - Sale of new and used vehicles; repairs and maintenance; sale of parts and accessories; car washing and polishing.
Retail of fuels and lubricants -- sale of kerosene, petrol, diesel, engine oils from fuel filling stations.

b. Wholesale Trade
Bulk sale of all goods -- food and agricultural materials, textiles, household goods, etc.


[p. 46]

c. Retail Trade
Re-sale (sale without transforming) of new and used goods to the general public for personal or household use by shops, markets, hawkers, peddlers and auctioneers. Sale by department stores, supermarkets, food and beverage shops, pharmacies and drug stores, hardware and paint shops; textile trading; selling in markets, along pavements and on veranda.


Hotels and Restaurants
a. Hotels and provision of short stay accommodation -- hotels, guest houses, inns, etc.

b. Restaurants, bars and canteens -- sale of prepared food and drinks for immediate consumption on the premises or as take-aways -- restaurants, chop bars, fast foods, catering activities, drinking bars, canteens.

Economic activity (P13 - P17)

Economic activity questions cover P13a, P13b, P13c, P14, P15, P15a, P16 and P17. All these questions should be related to the period of 7 days preceding Census Night. They should be asked only for persons aged 5 years and older.

Industry

P15. and P15a.
These should be asked of persons who answered:

a. Yes in P13a,
b. Did not work, but had job to go back to (P13b = 1) and,
c. Worked before, seeking for work and available for work (P13b = 2).
d. Did voluntary work without pay (P13b = 4).
P15a. Industry: What is the main product or service of the establishment where (name) works/worked?

Industry in P15a refers to the main industrial activity i.e. the main products made or service rendered by the establishment where the respondent works; or if unemployed his/her last place of work. Establishment applies not only to big enterprises such as a biscuit factory, meat factory, financial institutions, etc. but also to the small ones, e.g. hairdressing saloon, roast plantain joint, beer bar, street hawking, etc.

The guiding principle for recording industrial activity is that the main product or service must be the same for all persons employed directly by the same establishment even though they may be doing different type of jobs.

The following examples may help you understand what industrial activity is and what you are required to write down.

a) All persons (lecturers, professors, hall porters, registrar, vice-chancellor, research assistants, gardeners, cleaners, etc.) employed by University of Cape Coast should have university education as their industry.

b) The industrial activity of a self-employed brick layer is brick making. However, the industrial activity of a brick layer employed by a building construction company is construction of houses.

c) For a carpenter who makes window frames and is employed by a firm which builds houses, the major industrial activity you must write down is construction of houses, not window frames, since houses are built by the establishment where the construction carpenter works. If a hotel contracts a building construction company to build some chalets for them, the main product or service of the employees of the building construction company is building of houses and not hotel services.

d) In the same way, if a carpenter is employed by a building construction company which is undertaking a contract for a secondary school, you must write down building construction and not secondary education.

e) For a construction carpenter who is employed directly by a hotel, you must write hotel services as the major industrial activity of the establishment.

f) The major industrial activity of educational institutions, both public and private, are as follows [table]:

[Column headings:]
(A) Institution
(B) Industrial activity

Institution: Pre-primary / primary schools
Industrial activity: Pre-primary and primary education

Institution: Junior secondary school, junior high school, senior secondary school, senior high school
Industrial activity: General secondary education

Institution: Technical school, vocational school
Industrial activity: Technical and vocational secondary education

Institution: University, polytechnics, colleges, teacher training colleges, nursing training colleges
Industrial activity: Higher education

This means that when recording main service for persons employed in educational institutions, you should indicate precisely whether respondents work in primary schools, secondary schools, polytechnics, universities, etc.

g) Human health activities
In the same way, a more detailed description of the service offered is required for those employed by health institutions (i.e. hospitals, clinics, etc.). You should differentiate between health facilities which offer both in-patient and out-patient services and those which offer only out-patient services. For health institutions like the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Ridge Hospital, Kaneshie Polyclinic, Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital which have both in-patient and out-patient facilities, the main service will be "hospital activities". For those clinics which have only out-patient facilities, the main service is medical and dental activities.

h) Insurance
You should also make a clear distinction between respondents who work in insurance companies which deal with life insurance and those who cover non-life insurance e.g. marine, fire, aviation, property, health, etc.

i) Wholesale trade
In wholesale trade, distinction should be made between trading in specialized and non-specialized goods. This means dealing in one type of goods e.g. textile clothing and footwear; electronic and telecommunication equipment and parts or dealing in a variety of goods without any particular specialization.

[Below the text there is a graph showing the types of wholesale trade and the correspondent codes.]

j) Retail trade
Similarly, for retail trade, distinction is required first by type of sale outlet i.e. retail trade in stores and retail trade not in stores. For retail trade in stores, further distinction is required between specialized (i.e. range of items sold) and non-specialized retail trade.

Retail trade not in stores is classified by forms of trade e.g. retail sale in stalls and markets, door to door, mail order, by vending machines, on the street, in front of houses, etc.

[Below the text there is a graph showing the types of retail trade and the correspondent codes.]

k) At the market place, different economic activities are carried out. For example, cloth selling, food selling, dressmaking/tailoring/embroidery, corn milling, chop bar activities, hairdressing/barbering, etc. You must specify the actual economic activity of the respondent in the market. Do not record vague terms like 'market activities.'

These distinctions are necessary because they are classified under different industrial groups.

ii) Self-employed is the one that works in his own work without employing salaried or wage earning staff apart maybe a member of his family as unpaid assistant.
iii) Assistant in the family business or agricultural land is the family member working in the family business or agricultural land without pay, except his livelihood, within the time limits defined in paragraph 181.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Question 14 "In what type of establishment, enterprise did you work during the previous week or the last time you worked?"
The question refers to the type of economic activity, i.e. industry branch of the establishment, enterprise, service etc. where the enumerated individual is working or if he is seeking work, the establishment, enterprise etc. he was last working (cases 1 and 2 of question 13). The answer to this question should be recorded with great clarity so to enable coding by ELSTAT.
If the answer to this question is general and vague, e.g. "shop", "factory", "company" the enumerator should ask for instance "what type of shop?" or "what is the factory producing?" and "what are the activities of the company?".
Examples of adequate answers in this question are:
• Agricultural or livestock farms or forests or fisheries: "Cereal crop", "Pig", "Logging", "Sea fishing".
• In mines: "Lignite", "Bauxite mine”, "Marble quarry", etc.
•Industrial or craft enterprises: "Sausage factory", "Sporelaiourgeio" "Cotton gin”, “klostoviomichania”, "Shoe factory", "Joinery factory", "Furniture shop", "Cement factory", "Wire manufacturing factory", "Auto repair shop" etc.
• In building construction or civil engineering: "Demolition crew", "Concrete work", "Bricklaying", "Plumbing shop", "Roads", "Harbor works" etc.
• To trade, various services etc.: "Wholesale trade shop", "grocery", "fruit store", "General sales shop", “Retail store selling men's clothing ", "pharmacy", "Buses", "coasting", "travel agency", "insurance company", "Notary", "hospital", "school", "Private Practice" etc.
If the enumerated individuals are self-employed without having a shop, e.g. rover merchant, taxi driver, constructions' contractor having no offices etc. "rover" or "at taxi" or "self-contractor" will be recorded. Also, for dressmakers who do not have their own atelier and are working at their clients' houses "at clients' houses" is to be recorded. The answers will be coded by ELSTAT.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Educational and occupational characteristics

These questions should be asked exclusively of the persons who have informed that they are seven years old or older.

Economic characteristics of the population

The questions oriented to find out which were the economic activities of the population (questions 19 to 26) will only be asked of persons who are seven years old or older. Therefore, for every child who is six years old or younger, you should make an X in the respective spaces across the columns.

Questions 19 to 26 are of great significance, and therefore we request that the enumerator pay the greatest attention possible to the instructions that are given on the following pages for filling them in.

The questions contained in this section of the form have a certain relationship to each other, and therefore, if you do not put special care in completing them, you run the risk of obtaining incompatible information that will cause enormous damage to the posterior process to which the form will be subjected.

In general, the research of the economic characteristics of the population will refer not to the day of the census, but to the month previous to the census, which will be from March 17th to April 17th, 1964.

Question 22: Branch of economic activity (class of establishment, workshop, office, etc.)

As in the previous case, this question should be asked of persons who are seven years old or older who have been working or looking for work during the past four weeks before the census.

This question is closely related to question 21, for which you should write the branch of economic activity (type of establishment, workshop, office, etc.), in which the person carried out the declared occupation, indicating, for greater clarity, the article that is produced or the services that are provided. For example: sugar cane farm, food store, electric company, automobile repair shop, municipality, insurance and finance company, direction of public works, private house, shoe shop, tinsmith's shop, wood furniture factory, etc. You should also avoid the use of vague words, such as workshop, factory, government, commercial establishment, which do not say anything about what we want to know. You should add words that indicate the nature of the establishment that is noted, being always necessary to insist upon the nature of it, the article that is sold or produced, the material that it is made from, etc.

Neither is it enough for the census to note the name of the establishment, for example: "The Occidental" factory, since the activity of the same would not be known. It could well be a factory for shirts, as well as for noodles, or one that makes dresses for women.

In the case of the municipal workers or those of the government, you should note the name of the dependency: general direction of roadways, municipal electrical company, etc.

In the case of persons who work in two or more different establishments, performing the
same occupation (the accountant who works as such in commercial and industrial establishments), you must report the establishment from which you derive the highest income. In case of the income was the same in both parts, you should note the one in which the person spend more time.

In the case of persons who work in an enterprise that does different activities, you should note the branch of economic activity with which the persons are directly connected. If an employee works in a factory that produces soaps and cosmetics, the worker who works in that soap factory should report this establishment, while the person who works in the second activity should inform cosmetics factory. When the same person works in two or more different activities, for example, a teacher who teaches in the morning and in the afternoon attends a commercial establishment, you should note the activity from which he or she obtains the highest income. If the separation of the activities is not possible, you should report the one that he or she considers the most important.

2. How to record the data

The industry of the establishment where the principal occupation declared in question 17 (manufacturing, service, etc.) is recorded in the space provided.

Generic terms, such as factory, plantation, workshop, etc., should not be used to describe the industry. The name of the establishment should not be used: e.g. Santa Inés Fabric, El Artesano, etc. However, in cases of public sector institutions: central government, semi-autonomous and decentralized entities (IGSS, INDE, etc.), the name should be used.

Economic characteristics
This section comprises questions 11 to 19 which are asked to persons aged 10 years or older.

Columns 17, 18, and 19: The last three questions are asked to all those who worked or sought employment; that is, to all those who have an answer in column 16 and those who despite not having worked all year, claimed to be seeking work.

Column number 17: Where do you work or where did you work most recently?
This question is designed to find out the type of establishment or other place where the person works. The name of the establishment or place is written down: e.g. own farm, private home, clothing factory, brick factory, pharmacy, carpentry shop, mechanic’s workshop, shoe store, company farm, own house, etcetera.

For those who are not working at the time of enumeration, record the name of the establishment where they worked most of the time during the year between May 1, 1960 and April 30, 1961.

In the rare case where a person has a permanent employment but is working in another activity at the time of enumeration, the name of the establishment where the person permanently works is written down. For example: a person who works as a typist in the offices of Standard Fruit Co is on vacation or suspended from work at the time of enumeration and is working as a salesclerk in a store, the enumerator will write down "typist in Banana Co." and not the name of the store.

If a person works in a store as a salesclerk, the correct annotation is "salesclerk in a store", "salesclerk in a pharmacy" or "salesclerk in a bookstore". The type of establishment should be written down.

For those who work in more than one establishment, such as for example; an accountant for a commercial firm who also works as a teacher in a school, write down the profession that brings in the highest income or the one to which more time is dedicated.

For those who have never worked and have been seeking employment in the last month, "new worker" is written down in this column and dashes (--) are written into columns 18 and 19.

D. Block VII. Activities of persons age 10 or older

1. Purpose
The purpose of the questions in this block is to collect characteristics on the economic activities of every household member age 10 or older, such as field of work, type of work, work status and number of working days/hours during the past week. The work force of the community age 10 or older is divided into two categories: labor force and not in labor force. The population age 10 or older included in the labor force are those who had a job in the past week, those who are working or temporarily not working due to a certain cause such as waiting for harvesting time, or is on leave, etc. Also included in this group are those who do not have a job but are seeking one, hopefully to obtain a job. Populations that are not in the labor force are those who in the [previous] week only attended school, took care of a household, or others who did not do any activities that could be categorized as working, temporarily not working, or seeking work. There are several questions that are specifically asked to people who are either working or seeking a job. Also there are some [questions] for the non-working force that attends school, takes care of a household or elderly people, or [performs] other activities. In order to gain confirmation of the total population that is or is not included in the labor force, several questions will be asked in this block. Pay attention to the arrows and instructions that arrange the sequence of questions.


Question 24: Most frequent activity conducted during the past week

A week ago is a time period of 7 consecutive days that ends a day before the date of the enumeration. For example, if the enumeration was conducted on October 14, the week before began from October 7 until October 13.

Activity covers the activity of working, attending school, a homemaking and others (for example, actively seeking a job, join courses, sports, or recreation). Those who are incapable of working are categorized as "Other".

Most frequent activity is the most time consuming activity compared to the others.

The most time consuming activity is calculated by comparing the time used for work, school, household work and others (actively seeking a job, incapable of conducting an activity, courses or sports). Leisure time used for relaxing, resting, sleeping and planting for working people, attending school, or taking care of a household are not used as a comparison.

Working is an activity of conducting work in order to obtain income or profits at least for one hour during the previous week. Working for an hour has to be conducted consecutively and continuously, including those who have a job but is temporarily not working. Earnings or profits cover salary/wages including all allowances, bonus and earnings from leasing, interests and profits in the form of cash or goods.

Explanation:

a. A person who conducts activities that produce grain (paddy, maize, sorghum) or palawija = second crop (cassava, sweet potato, potato) for self-consumption and mainly for fundamental needs, not as a hobby, is considered to be working.
b. A person who conducts activities that produce goods (not rice or a second crop) for self-consumption such as sewing one's own clothes, painting for a private collection, cooking for one's own family and fishing for pleasure, is not considered to be working.
c. Household members who help the work of the household head or that of other members, for example in the rice field, stall/shop, etc. are considered to be working, although they do not receive salary/wages ("Unpaid worker")
d. A person who hires machines/farm machinery, industrial machines, party equipments, transportation vehicle or others is categorized as "Working".
e. Housemaid/servant is categorized as "Working", whether or not they are a member of their employer's household.
f. A prisoner who conducts activities such as planting, making furniture or other is not considered to be working.
g. A person who rents his farm to another person and shares the products is categorized as "Working" if he/she is responsible or is managing the farm.


Attending school is attending classes in a formal school at the primary level or other levels (secondary and high), including those on vacation. For those who also go to school and work, the activity during the past week is the one which is the most time consuming.

Taking care of the household is the activity of doing household work/helping without receiving salary/wages.

Example:
A housewife, or her children who help with household activities, is categorized as "Taking care of a household". A helper who does the same activities but receives salary/wages is not categorized as "Taking care of a household", but rather is categorized as "Working".

"Other" are activities besides working, such as attending school, household work, those who are incapable of conducting activities, such as elderly people, handicapped or those who obtain pension and do not work anymore.

Circle one of the appropriate codes based on the respondent's answer; if the answer is Code 1 continue the interview to Question 28.


Question 25: Did you work at least one hour during the past week?
Circle code 1 if the answer is "Yes" then continue to Question 28. Circle code 2 if the answer is "No" then continue to Question 26.


Question 26: Employed but temporarily not working during the past week?
Circle code 1 if the answer is "Yes" then continue to Question 30. Circle code 2 if the answer is "No" then continue to Question 27.

Those who are categorized as employed but are temporarily not working are those who have a job but during the past week did not work because of several causes such as illness, waiting for harvest, or on strike. Also [include] those who had a job but did not start work in the previous week.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


7.7.3 Block VI.C. Household members age 10 or older


Question 627: Industry of main job
The way to determine whether the activity is the main job or not is as follows:

  • If the respondent during the past week has only one job, that job is considered as his/her main job.
  • If the respondent during the past week has more than one job, then the job that requires the most time is considered the main job. If the time is the same, then the job with the greatest earnings is considered the main job.


A person is considered to have more than one job if the work is carried out separately. Casual farm workers who work for several farmers are considered as having only one job.

Explanation:
1. If someone is on leave from a job and during that leave is not doing any other work, then his/her job that he/she is on leave from is the main job.

2. If someone is on leave and while on leave he/she carries out several other jobs, then one of his/her other jobs is considered his/her main job.


Example:
a. A marketing manager in a real estate company who during the past week was on leave and during that leave did not do any work; then, his/her work as real estate marketing manager is his/her main job.

[p. 112]

b. During the past week a doctor at the general hospital was on leave, and during his leave he helped his wife sell sports equipment; this doctor's main job during the past week is selling sport equipment.

c. During the past week a farmer who in addition to working on his own farm also helped plant rice in another farmer's field and received payment. This farmer is classified as having two jobs within the same field of industry, which is agriculture. The job where he spent more time is considered his main job. If the time is the same, then the job that earned the most is considered his main job.

d. If a person works in the morning to plant rice and works in the evening for a different farmer to plant vegetables, then this person is classified as having one job, that is: planting food crops.


Field of industry/work is the field of activity of the work/business/office where the person works.

The Industrial Classification used is the Indonesian Standard Industrial Classification 2000 (KBLI 2000) which no longer classifies the economic activities in Indonesia based on sector/field of activity (nine sectors), but uses category (18 categories) and major group (63 major groups).

Method of filling in the form: write the field of industry of the main job during the past week as completely as possible in order to facilitate the processing, in particular during coding at the BPS central office.

[p. 113]

Example of filling in field or work:
Incorrect
  • Agriculture
  • Gita Kencana Company
  • Transportation


Correct
  • Food crops agriculture -- grains/vegetables
  • Ready- made clothing industry/batik cloth at Gita Kencana Co.
  • Bus driver/driver for private household

Household Members 10 Years or Older
Questions 215 through 218 are asked to household members who are 10 years of age or older. See Q204; if 10, 11, 12... 98 have been entered, then the relevant household member must be asked Q215 through Q218 where appropriate.


Questions 216 through 218: Labor Force
The objective of Q216 and Q218 is to obtain information about the labor force situation which covers activities carried out during the previous week, the main industry of that work, and the employment status of that main work activity.


Question 217: Industry/Field of Work of Primary Job
The objective of this question is to obtain detailed information on the industry/field of economic activity/work of the household member, which is carried out by asking place of work, what is the activity or the activity of the company where he/she works, and what is the product or what is produced by this company (product or service). It is expected that by asking the questions in this way, the detailed answers of the household member obtained about the industry of his/her work/economic activity can be categorized more precisely.
[p. 135]
[Note within graphic box:] Field of activity is the field of work or activity carried out by the business/endeavor/institution at the place where the respondent works.
Ask and then write clearly and in detail the field of activity of the primary job of the respondent. Putting a mark in the oval for one code in the list of field of activity of the main job will be carried out by the Team Coordinator.
The way to determine the primary job/economic activity is as follows:

1. If the household member during the previous week had only one job, then that job is recorded as his/her primary job/economic activity.
2. If the household member during the previous week had more than one job, then the job which required the longest amount of time or the most time is recorded as the primary job. If the amount of time is the same, then the job which has the largest income is recorded as the primary job. If the time and the income are the same, then the primary job is whichever the respondent considers to be his/her primary job.
3. A household member is considered to have more than one job if carrying out these jobs is done separately. A farm worker, even though he/she works for several farmers (carries out the work separately) is categorized as having only one job.

[Note from graphic box:] For a person who has more than one job during the previous week, the primary job is the one which requires the most time.
[p. 136]
Explanation:
1. If a household member who is currently on leave does not do any other work while on he/she is on leave, then the work from which he/she is on leave is his/her primary job. For example, a person works for an insurance company; during the past week while on sick leave, he/she does not do any other work. The job of this person is insurance company employee.
2. A household member is currently on leave and while on leave he/she does some other work; this other work is considered his/her primary job. For example, a person works in a wood furniture making factory; during the previous week during his leave or vacation he helps his wife sell clothing in the market. The job of this person is "helped wife sell clothing in the market."

Examples:
1. During the previous week, Rahmat who works as a doctor in the Maternity Clinic has some free time and during the previous week he spent more time helping his wife sell sports equipment. Rahmat's primary job during the previous week is selling sports equipment.
2. During the previous week a farmer, in addition to planting rice on his own field, also planted rice on someone else's field for a fee. This farmer is categorized as having two jobs which are planting rice on his own field and a farm worker planting food crops even though the industry is the same, that is, agricultural food crops.

[Note from graphic box:] Record the industry/field of activity as completely and as clearly as possible.
Various examples follow; hopefully these examples will give a true understanding of the intention of this question.
1. The response that is expected is not simply farmer, but a farmer who plants, takes care of, produces rice crop; then the industry is Agriculture, rice, corn, other grains.
2. The response that is expected is not simply driver, but driver of a private car, or driver in company making traditional herbs, or city transport driver. The answer is still a driver, but if the respondent's answer is detailed, then the classification of the industry/field of activity can be made with greater accuracy. For a driver of a private car, the industry is Other Services of an individual who serves a household. For a driver who works in a company making traditional herbs, the industry is Pharmaceutical and Herbal Industry, whereas for the city transport driver, the industry is Transportation and Storage.
[p. 137]
3. The response that is expected is not simply operates a business (entrepreneur), but sells household goods in a retail store. If only businessman/entrepreneur is recorded, it will be difficult to determine the industry, but a more complete response will aid in selecting the correct industry classification. For this example, the industry is Trade (Retail).

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

22. Working status, column 23
Fill this column based on the following directions for all the members of the household who are 10 years old and above and leave it blank for the rest of them. To define an individual's working status, you should know the definition of work.
Work: the part of economic activities (physical or intellectual), the purpose of which is to gain profits (cash or non-cash) for the goal of producing goods or demonstrating service.
People who work are distributed in two major groups; freelance (they work for themselves) and salaried (they get paid in exchange for their work). Pay attention to the following:
The following people's activities are also considered as work:
- Individuals who work for one of the household members without earning an income (working for free for family). These people are usually women and teenagers who help other members of the family for free in activities such as farming, animal husbandry, carpet weaving, etc.
- Individuals serving in the military service.
- Individuals who serve in the Basij militia and earn money from it.
- Individuals who work at their residence in order to earn money, such as carpet weaving, sewing, hairdressing, typing, tutoring, fixing small electronics, baby-sitting, etc.
- Individuals who are occupied with activities like carpet weaving and sewing in order to produce durable goods for their own consumption.
- Individuals who are building, fixing or redecorating their own residence.
- Individuals who are interning and are involved directly in the production of goods and service, whether it is for exchange of money or not.
- Women or men who are occupied with activities such as farming, gardening, animal husbandry, fishing, etc.

The following activities are not considered as work:
- Unpaid activities at home for other members of the household like cooking, house holding, taking care of children, etc., which are mostly done by women.
- Social volunteering services at charities and Basij, etc.
- Small house maintenances such as faucets and valves, fixing windows and small electronics.
- Investing in economical activities without participating in management or actual operations, such as the stock exchange or investing money in companies.


23. Occupation, Industry, "Employment status", Columns 24, 25 and 26
Fill these columns for any 10 years old and above member of the household who have worked in the last 7 days, or have a job but have not worked in the past 7 days for specific reasons (codes 1 and 2 in column 23) and leave it blank for other members.
Note:

- For those who have a job but have not worked in the past 7 days (temporarily absent, code 2 in column 23), fill these columns based on the usual job of the person.
- For those who have worked in another field other than their usual job in the past 7 days (code 1 in column 23), fill these columns based on the person's field of work in the last 7 days.
- For those who have worked in more than one field in the past 7 days, fill these columns based on what they give you as their main job. If the respondent fails to indicate the main job, consider the one they have allocated more time to during the past week, and if the timing was even for all the jobs, consider the one that they have more work experience in.


23.2. Industry, Column 25
For those who received code 1 or 2 in column 23, define the financial activity of the work place or the related activity to the job and write it down in this column.
Note that all the mentioned activities in response to this question will be coded based on international standard categorization. Therefore, it is necessary to define people's main activity of the work place based on the following explanations and write it out.

- Write the main activity of the work place in a manner that shows exactly the activity of that place and avoid writing general titles such as department store, store, office, company, factory, etc., because these titles do not specify what is sold in the store, what the activity of the office or company is and what is produced in the factory.
- For those who work in ministries, organizations, institutions, public associations and Islamic revolution foundations, in case the name of the work place expresses the activity, put down the name of the organization, institution or foundation in this column; such as ministry of agriculture, department of education, department of ports and inland water transport, elementary school, Imam Khomeini's Relief Foundation, etc. Otherwise, in addition to the name of the work place, include the explanation of the main activity in parenthesis; such as Tavanir company (production and distribution of energy), Aseman company (airline services), Iran Tanker (transporting goods), etc.
- For those who have a contract with the private sector (human and legal entities) but work in public institutions, municipalities, etc., indicate their main activity of the work place as that of the human and legal entity and write in column 25.
- In some cases, their activities are such that they do not have a permanent work place, like construction works, taxi driving, peddling, etc. In these cases, write down the name of the activity they are occupied with as the main activity of work place, such as construction, taxi driving, peddling, etc.
- For wholesale trades, include the word "wholesale" along with the name of the sold good.
- In importing and exporting goods related activities, make sure to mention the words "import" and "export" along with the name of the good.
- For activities related to "production" or "maintenance" of a good, make sure to mention the word "production" or "maintenance" along with the main activity of the work place, because the production and maintenance of some goods each have their individual codes, such as fixing computers and producing computers. In some cases that the production and maintenance are completed together, put the phrase "production and maintenance" with the name of the good, such as tractor-production and maintenance. See the following examples.


Job title: Hand-made shoemaker
Job code: 7422
Main activity of the work place: Shoe production

Write the activity of those working in agriculture and animal husbandry clearly and avoid general names. Since occupation and the main activity of the work place are directly related in this section, it is necessary to include the type of the production activity and the product in the main activity of the work place. Pursue as the following examples.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Part H: Work

3. Instructions for answering questions :
Questions for examining work in 2008:
The first group of questions about 'work' helps determine whether a person worked in 2008 and allows us to estimate the amount of labor force at the household's disposal.

k. Main activity of the workplace
The description of the main activity of the workplace is an important variable for correctly classifying the workplace. There are many cases in which the 'workplace name' does not provide us any information on the activity performed at the workplace, and therefore the person is asked to describe the main activity performed there. For example, 'A.A. Moshe and sons' - we cannot conclude what this company does just from its name: industry, agriculture, etc. Therefore, the person is asked to accurately describe the activity performed at the workplace.
Question 7.100 - What is the main activity of the workplace?

- Write the activities of the workplace, not the activities of the person at the workplace.
- Write an accurate and detailed description of the activities, the products or services produced or provided by the factory, business, company or employer mentioned in the previous question. It is not enough to provide a general description such as: 'factory' or 'contractor'. It is important to verify what the activity is - production, services, fixing, wholesale or retail, growing plants or raising animals, etc.
- In cases of people who work in a factory which produces various types of products, or works in different areas - type the main activity of the factory, institution or farm. If it is impossible to determine what the main activity of the workplace is - write all of them.
- If a person works in a subsidiary company which focuses on a different activity than that of the parent company (the main company) - write the activity of the subsidiary company.

(iii) worked without pay either in cash or in kind as a volunteer worker for service organizations or church groups - such as the Red Cross, Boy Scouts, Girl Guides, Society for the Blind, Operation Workshop, etc.

Section 4: Economic activity
[Persons age 14 and older]

5.73 General
Section 4 is comprised of Questions 4.1 through 4.20, and should be asked to persons age 14 and older. The main purpose of this section is to determine which individuals were in the working force of the country at some point in time.

This section is included in the sample coverage because it requires much more probing than should be undertaken for the short form. Economic activity in Jamaica has undergone some amount of transformation within the past two or three decades, whereby there has been a significant development of what has come to be regarded as the "Informal sector". People have in many instances moved away from the traditional jobs in the public and private sectors and have ventured into their own small scale businesses, some of which are being operated within homes.

You must pay close attention to the skip instructions at all times to ensure that you ask relevant questions. You will also need to pay close attention to the different reference periods stated. Questions 4.1 through 4.4 seek to identify the persons who worked. As we know that work means different things to different people, we try in these questions to establish clearly whether an individual worked or not within a particular week. These questions relate to the week preceding the Census date, as do Questions 4.5 through 4.13. Question 4.14 asks for a specific date. Questions 4.15 and 4.16 relate to the past twelve months, while questions 4.17 and 4.18 refer to the past 5 years. Questions 4.19 and 4.20 are relevant to persons of pensionable age and seek to determine the type of social welfare benefits or pension being received. Even if the person has never worked, he/she can be in receipt of social welfare benefits (as the beneficiary of a spouse).

It is important that the concept of work be fully understood.

Work includes:

(a) Work with pay, that is:
(i) Work for others for a wage or salary including commission or tips. Work may be done either in the employment of the government, a business organization, some private or public organization, or an individual. These correspond to the categories "Paid employee of government", "Private enterprise", or "Private home" in question Q4.6).

(ii) Work as trainee (such as nurses in training) or apprentice (persons at trade). This could also correspond to the same categories at is point (i).

(iii) Work for oneself in one's own business (including farm), which is run for profit or fees but does not employ paid help. This corresponds to "Self-employed without Employees" in question Q4.6. For example: odd job, hustling, buying and selling etc.

(iv) Work for oneself in one's own business (including farm), which is run for profit or fees and employs paid help. This corresponds to "Self-employed with employees" in question Q4.6.


(b) Work without pay in a business or farm which is run for profit that is:
(i) Work without pay in a business or farm run for profit (usually by a relative), in cases where the individual is either supported by the owner or obtains some benefits other than cash from running of business (see "Unpaid employee in agriculture" or any type of business in question Q4.6).

(ii) Work as an unpaid helper in a business or other organization, in cases where the respondent is learning a trade or profession in this way, with a view to engaging in work for pay (see "Unpaid employee in agriculture" or any type of business in question Q4.6).


Do not include as "working" those persons who:
(i) Work without money or pay for a relative or other person on tasks that did not contribute to the operation of a farm or of a business: e.g., housework, gardening, odd jobs around the house or yard, such as painting the fence, etc.

(ii) Work without pay assisting a relative or friend in his duties as an employee.

(iii) Work without pay either in cash or in kind as a volunteer worker for service Society for Blind, Operation Workshop.


Note also that "work" must relate to work in Jamaica. It includes, however, those persons who are residing in the territory but are on boats, ships, airplanes, etc., which may operate outside of the territory, as well as travelling salesmen, consultants, etc. Informal commercial importers who travel to the Cayman Islands buying and selling are to be included. Do not include the work done by persons going as contract workers to North America for a few months to work on farms there during the crop season. Other persons who live and work outside of the country should not be classified as having worked with respect to the time they were resident outside of the country.


5.78 Question 4.8: Industry of type of business in present/last job

What is required here is the type of business where the individual worked. It must relate to the occupation entered on Q4.7. Write in the type of business in the space provided by giving a short description of the activity. For example: "Manufacturing", "Cane growing", "Building construction", or "Making of bread and cakes". In instances where you cannot adequately describe the industry, you may give the name of the business or firm also.

In the case of persons engaged by local or central government, give the name of the office or department in which they are employed.

For domestic servants and other personal service workers who work as paid employees in private homes, the industry is "Private home". For persons who indicate odd jobs or hustling, you will need to identify the nature of such activity in order to accurately record the industry. For someone selling biscuits, the industry would not be the same as the person who assist travelers to the buses.

As for occupation, do not attempt to score any codes in the four boxes in the right.

Section D: For persons aged 10 years and above
Section D deals with employment questions. These questions shall be asked to all who is 10 years and above. For children, less than 10 years of age, tick the box "under 10" in question 14, and leave questions 15 -- 19 blank.
Three different questions are asked to collect labor market information. The questions are interrelated and the purpose of each question must be clearly understood. Explain to the respondent that you will start by asking information on his/her employment status, then his/her profession and lastly about the sector s/he was working in.

Question 17: In which industrial sector was [the respondent] mainly working during the last twelve months?
The purpose of this question is to collect information on the industrial sector the respondent was working in.
This question is put to persons coded 01 to 07 in question 15, i.e. paid employees, employers, own account workers and unpaid family workers. Use the tick-box "N/A" to indicate that the question is not applicable for all others.
Industrial sector refers to the activity performed that is what is made or done at the work place (by the establishment) where the person mainly worked during the last 12 months, irrespective of the occupation of the person. Where a company has multiple activities (makes or does many things), the main activity should be determined. This is done by determining the activity which occupies most persons at that workplace.
For persons working at more than one place during this period, record the industrial sector where s/he spends most of the time.
For persons working in the Farming sector, use the tick-box to indicate this. For all others, tick the "other" alternative, and write a short description of what is made or done at the workplace where the person worked for most of the last twelve months preceding the census night. The activity should be recorded as fully as possible, e.g. primary school teaching, retail trade of clothes, motor car repair, rice growing. Avoid unclear descriptions as teaching, trading etc. If the industrial sector in very rare cases is not known, tick the "other" alternative and write "not known".

Industry
71. The classification of a person's industry is based on the nature of the product or service provided by the organization for which he/she works. For example, those persons who work in a bakery are in the "food manufacturing" industry whether their occupation is that of manager, cook or night-watchman. In the case of people who provide a service, for example, a dentist or barber, you should give details of their industry or describe their type of work place (that is "dental clinic" or "barber's shop"). In the particular case of a dentist or a barber these details are obvious but in the case, for example, of persons working in these places as "cleaners", it is clearly not sufficient to write merely "health" or "shop". Note that you should not give the name of a person's employers to describe their industry. However, in the case of Government employees you should give the full name of the Department/Unit, for example, Fisheries, National Statistical Office, Post Office Savings Bank and not merely the name of the Ministry, e.g. Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources, Office of the President and Cabinet and Transport and Communications.

72. If in doubt, always give sufficient detail. A guide for classification of activities in different industrial group is given in Annex pages 37 to 39. This annex, however, does not include the names of different government departments which you are required to write in case of government employees.

73. Other examples of occupation and industry would be:
(a) A man may be a driver on a farm in which case his occupation is a driver; and his industry is agriculture. Another men may be a driver in a factory in which case his occupation is driver and his industry will be the industry in which the factory is engaged e.g. if making clothes -- clothing industry. Similarly, a driver may work for U.T.M. in which case his industry is transportation.


[p.15]

(b) Similarly it is possible to have people who do the same kind of work in one organization and yet may be in different industries, examples of which would be a clerk working for ADMARC which has different industries, e.g. Agriculture, Trade and Transportation. In such cases you will have to ask in which section or department of the organization the person works. Where you have doubt as to the proper industry of a person, treat the main activity of the organization as his industry.

(c) On the other hand, some people working in different organizations may either belong to similar or different occupations but to the same industry group. Examples of such cases are as follows: a civil servant working as an accounts clerk in the Department of Personnel Management and Training; his occupation will be accounts clerk while his industry group will be public administration and defense. One who is working as a security guard in the same department; his occupation will be protective worker and his industry group will be public administration and defense. A policeman working as a driver will have his occupation recorded as driver and the industry group as public administration and defense. However, the occupation of an ordinary policeman who does not have other specialized duties other than security would be recorded as protective worker. Similarly, in the case of Army personnel, an officer working as a mechanic will have mechanic as his occupation and public administration and defense as his industry group. A private soldier working in the infantry as a rifleman will have his occupation recorded as protective worker while his industry will still be public administration and defense.


Persons age 10 years or older

Questions from (l) through (q) should only be asked to persons who are age 10 years or older.


(0) Industry: Write the actual industry in which each person is or was working and columns 40-41 should be left blank. Use the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC) provided on pages 37 - 39 as a guide.

Remember that the question on industry applies only to those who are "Active" or "Unemployed but worked before" and should have reported an occupation. Write N/A (Not applicable) for all those to whom the question on industry does not apply, i.e. those "Unemployed but never worked before" and those "Inactive".

Part B: Characteristics of Individual Household Members


4. Persons age 10 years or older


Industry: The classification of a person's industry is based on the nature of the product or service provided by the organization for which he/she works. For example, those persons who work in the bakery are in the "food manufacturing" industry whether their occupation is that of manager, cook or night watchman. In the case of people who provide a service, for example a dentist or barber, you should give details of their industry or describe the type of their work (that is "dental clinic" or "barber shop"). In the particular case of the dentist or a barber, these details are obvious; but in the case (for example) of persons working in these places as "cleaners," it is clearly not sufficient to write merely "health" or "shop". Note: You should not give the name of a person's employers to describe their industry.
Industry responses are based on the Standard International Classification (ISIC) given in Appendix C. This system classifies industry into 9 broad divisions, each of which is further sub-divided into 4 digit specific subcategories. These subcategories enable as to identify a particular industry within a broad industrial division. For instance, under "Agriculture, hunting, forestry and fishing," specific subcategories such as "Tea growing" or "Tobacco growing" are shown separately.
Other examples of occupation and industry would be:
a.) A man may be a driver on a tea farm in which case his occupation is driver and his industry is tea growing. Another man may be a driver in a factory, in which case his occupation is driver and his industry is the one in which the factory is engaged; e.g. if making clothes, clothing industry. Similarly, a driver may work for a stage coach in which case his industry is transportation. A person who sells second-hand clothes (kaunjika) will be classified as second-hand clothes vendor or kaunjika vendor as his/her occupation, but his/her specific industry group will be 'Other Retail Trade'.
b.) Similarly, it is possible to have people who do the same kind of work in one organization and yet may be in different industries, an example of which would be a clerk working for ADMARC which has different industries, e.g. "Agriculture, trade and transportation". In such cases you will have to ask in which section or department of the organization the person works. Where you have doubts as to the proper industry of a person treat the main activity of the organization as his industry.
c.) Most government departments fall under the broad industrial group of community, social and personnel services but further subdivided into different subgroups. For instance, a civil servant working as an accounts clerk in the department of Human Resource Management and Development: his occupation will be accounts clerk while his industrial group will be public administration and defense. A primary school teacher working in a government school will have teacher as his occupation and the industrial group as government school. On the other hand, a primary school teacher working in a private school will have private school as his industry.


B19. Industry: Write the actual industry in which each person is or was working in the space provided in B19 and leave the four boxes blank. If you are not sure about a person's industry, then just state clearly what the person does and the appropriate industry will be put in the office. However, this should only be done as a last resort after you have failed to identify the appropriate industry.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image



Questions 25-44 are to be asked of persons who are 10 years of age and above.



Questions 25-34 record information on work or employment of a person. Be sure to explain to the respondent that you are only concerned with the period of 7 days prior to the day of interview.


Question 34
This question is concerned with the industry in which the person worked during the 7 day reference period. It refers to the industry of the respondent's principal occupation.

The industry of a person refers to the activity of the establishment, (for example, firm, factory or shop) where the person worked during the 7 day reference period. In practice, knowledge of the type of product produced and the type of service performed by the establishment would give you an idea of the type of activity. If the person was unemployed during that period you are to record the previous industry in which he worked.

The kind of industry carried on at the place where the person worked during the reference week must be recorded clearly and exactly. Avoid the use of general terms, such as, manufacturing, wholesaling, retailing, construction, estate, mining, factory, Government service, etc. Use two or more words to describe in more detail the industry, for example, manufacturing of shoes, wholesale grocery, retail book store, road construction, rubber estate, tin mining (dredging), palm oil factory, Department of Statistics, would be more useful for purposes of classification.

If the company for which the person works is engaged in several different types of industries, you are to record the industry which is carried out at the particular place where the person worked during the reference week.

Column 39: This column is closely related to column 33, which means that the notes in column 39 refer to the type of business or activity in which the person works, and should refer to the occupation that he/she has. For example, if you have written 'farmer' in column 33, in column 33 you should write, for agricultural farm.

Type of Activity
(Very Important)

Column 39. Annotations of great importance are made here; for this reason one must proceed very carefully. The object is to specify where the enumerated works - that is to say, what type of company, business, or activity - such that the annotations in this column serve to complete the information given [P. 30] in column 33. For example: if it was written in column 33 that the enumerated is an agriculturalist, agricultural farm should be written in column 39. The proper names of stores or businesses should not be written.

For cases in which the enumerated is looking for work for the first time, "New Worker" should be written in column 39. Due to the great importance of the concepts "principal occupation," "job position or category," and "type of activity," the following is a list that will serve as a guide, so that the enumerator will be able to correctly classify the enumerated regarding their principle occupation.

Examples of the enumeration of laborers:
COLUMN 33 COLUMN 34 COLUMN 39
Shoe leather cutter Worker X Shoe factory
Masonry worker Worker X Home construction
Servant Worker X Private Home
Examples of the enumerations of employees of any category:
COLUMN 33 COLUMN 35 COLUMN 39
Typist Employee X Bank branch
Store clerk Employee X Clothing store
Manager (Gerente) Employee X Shoe factory
Examples of the enumeration of people who are bosses or managers (empresario):
COLUMN 33 COLUMN 36 COLUMN 39
Agriculturalist Boss or manager X Cotton farm

Economic activity

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


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.


7.7 and 7.8 Type of activity

The objective of these questions is to know the distribution of the working population by sector of economic activity.

Question 7.7 has the goal of knowing the type of place where the employed person worked the week before the interview. This place can be a factory, an [p. 134] X-ray laboratory, a dressmaking shop, in the street, in the market, in the house, at a construction site, etc.

For people who had two or more jobs in the week before the interview, the type of activity of the place where the principal work was done should be known, which is the one that the informant selected and was written down in 7.3.

This question has two ways to write down the answer: the first, when the answer of the informant is equal to one of the options; in these cases write down the code that corresponds in column 7.7 A and go to question 7.9 about income. The second way is applied when the answer is not equal to the listed options; if this is so, write down the answer as such and also describe it in column 7.7B and ask question 7.8 Type of activity.

It is important to point out that the eight answer options included in this question, do not pretend to cover all places of work. These are listed because they are those declared most frequently and result in repeatedly asking for the type of activity, when it is already known. For example, in a school classes are offered, in a hospital health services are provided, in a grocery store groceries are sold, etc.

Some of the establishments or businesses declared by an informant, different then the listed options and that should be written down exactly in 7.7B are the following:

[p. 135]

Agriculture or livestock:

Plot of land, livestock ranch, pig farm, agricultural farm, vegetable garden, coffee plantation, etc.

Industry:

Factory, process center, bottling factory, machine shop, bakery, mine, petrol-chemical complex, refinery, carpenter's shop, dressmaker's shop, etc.

Commerce:

Auto shop, mall, general store, paper store, market, hardware store, butcher store, superette, etc.

Services:

Clinic, doctor's office, drycleaners, cleaners, beauty salon, public bathrooms, gymnasium, hairdressers, tinsmith shop, office for lawyers, accountants, private investigation, photocopying, etc.

Along with the previous, also it is possible that an informant declare generic places like: in the street (street salesperson), on the road (transportation worker), etc. In these cases it is necessary that in the following question (7.8) the activity done in the declared place is written in detail.

When an informant declares the registered name of an institution, establishment, business or company, register the complete name, unless they have an abbreviation known at the national level, for example: INEGI, Pemex, IMSS, ISSSTE, DIF, SARH, SEP, among others.

In the cases in which an answer is the name of a person, investigate if this person has an establishment or place to work which is the name. If you cannot determine it, write the name that informant gives you, for example: "with their father," "with Misses María" etc.

When any doubt is present with a hired worker for a company, which does its duties in another company's instillations, write down the place of work corresponding to the establishment where hired. For example, in the case of cleaning workers of AQUALIM who do their job in a public office it should be written down in column 7.7B that they work in a cleaning company.

When an informant mentions in occupation questions the establishment where the person works, ask the question in a confirming manner:

Interviewer: What is the office or position that Carmen has in her job?
Informant: She is a seller in a butcher's shop.
Interviewer: So, you are telling me Carmen worked in a butcher's shop?
Informant: Yes, that's right.

[p. 136]

Question 7.8 Type of activity, corresponds to what is done or produced in the place or establishment, written down in 7.7B where the occupied person works.

[graphic of the question from the census form]

When two or more activities are done in the place or job, for example: making of milk and coffee, sports clothing and balls, among others, ask the informant to indicate the principal one.

In an informant tells you that in the place of work any product is produced or made, ask to point out the principle material used, for example, they make furniture of wood, they make toys from plastic, they make hats from palm, they make metal desks, etc.

In the same way, where any service is declared, ask for more details, for example: they do legal or company procedures, they do photography studies, they do laboratory studies, they produce radio programs, etc. Remember that the information of this question is written down in detail.

Frequently the duties described in the occupation question, particularly those of self employed workers, correspond to the activity of the business of these workers. In these cases, ask the question to confirm in the following manner:

Interviewer: What is the office or position that Juan has at his job?
Informant: He works as a tinsmith.

[p. 137]

Interviewer: What are the duties or functions that Juan has in his job?
Informant: He fixes wrecked cars.
Interviewer: In his job is Juan an employee or worker?
Informant: No, he is self employed.
Interviewer: Where does Juan work?
Informant: In his body workshop.
Interviewer: Then, in Juan's workshop wrecked cars are fixed?
Informant: Yes.

Ask the question in a confirming manner for people who declare to work in the street, at the home of their clients, from door to door, that is, for those who do not have a place or establishment. In these cases the activity of the business or place of work, generally corresponds to the duties declared in 7.4.

For example, if an informant declared as occupation selling candy and fruit in the street, confirm that it is the sale of the mentioned products.

Also if it was declared that the person cleans and irons someone else's clothes in a private house, confirm that the activity corresponds to this occupation.

If after exhausting all possibilities, the person does not know the information about any member of the family, write "does not know," in 7.7B and/or 7.8.

29. Economic Activity

[Depiction of this completed question on the enumeration form, and a related drawing]

The economic activity of the place where the person worked last week is captured with two questions.

In the first question, record the place where the person worked last week; the answer can be "in the country, "in the factory," "in the office," "in the street," "in a hospital," "in a private home," "in their home," "outside of the market," "outside of the school," etc.

In the second question, record what the company, institution, business, premises, or place where the person worked last week does or is dedicated to.

In this question they may respond that "they plant," "they manufacture," "they provide services," among other things. For this reason, find out what is planted, what is manufactured or what kinds of services are performed. For example, planting corn, manufacturing shirts, selling clothing, selling tacos, fixing cars, making handicrafts, cutting hair, etc.

Keep in mind that in factories and workshops goods are made with different materials such as iron, wood, and plastic, among others. Because of this reason, ask for the material with which they are made. For example, if they make boxes, find out if they are made of cardboard, of wood, or of plastic.

[P. 83]

When the person worked doing household chores for other people or in another house, record what the person did.

Example:

Occupation Where they worked What they do
Servant In another person's house Chores in another person's house
Gardener In another person's house Take care of the garden in another person's house


Do the same for people who work on their own in the street or don't have a fixed or permanent place to work; that is, record what they do. For example, puts flooring in other people's houses, sells shellfish in the street, sings in busses, takes care of cars in the street, sells clothing from house to house, etc.

[Depiction of this completed question on the enumeration form, and a related drawing]

If the person had more than one job, record only the economic activity of the workplace where they performed their principal occupation.

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]


33. Economic activity sector
The economic activity completed in the business, company, or place where the person worked the week before the data collection is found out through two questions:

  • First investigate the common name of the place where the person worked the week before the data collection
  • Second, solicit what the place is dedicated to, that is, what is done, sold, transported, cultivated, extracted, produced or fabricated, what services are offered, what is constructed, among others.


Regarding the activity of the business, company or place where the person worked, always ask, according to the case, for:
  • The main material used in production
  • The product they sell
  • The product they repair.


Use this information to clearly write what they produce, sell, or repair.

For example:
They make cardboard boxes.
They make wooden boxes.
They make and sell houses.

They sell plates, pots, and others.
They sell life insurance.
They sell used clothing.
They sell spare parts for trailers.

They repair shoes.
They repair autos.
They repair used clothing.

When the person responds that he/she works on his/her own, in the second question (to what is the business dedicated) repeat what is noted for Occupation, that is, what the person did. Always be sure that the informer listens to what you write.

Examples:
"What did the person do?" Arranged gardens, sold fresh fish
"Where did the person work?" In different houses, in the market
"What are they dedicated to where he/she works?" Arranging gardens, selling fresh fish

If the person doesn't have a fixed place to work, note the place most frequented or as they indicate it, for example: in his/her own house, in the street, in the market, from door-to-door, outside the school, or in different houses.

If the person had more than one job, only register the economic activity from the work place where he/she carried out the principal occupation.

35. Business, company, or workplace and 36. Business, company, or workplace activity
These questions identify the business, company, or place where people worked the week before the interview, as well as the job duties in them.

[Figures are omitted]

Note that a list of workplaces appears in the first question, if the answer corresponds exactly to any place circle the corresponding code; otherwise record textually the answer on the lines of "elsewhere". If the person does not have a fixed place to work, record the most frequent place indicated by the person. Avoid making translations or reinterpretations.

Once identified the business name, company, or place where the person works, apply question 36 "business, company or workplace activity" to know the job duties performed by the person, the products or services offered by the person and the type of economic activity done by him/her. Record the textual answer and avoid translations or reinterpretations.

When you get the name of the workplace and the activity performed by the person is obvious for yourself, only confirm your guess with the informant. For example:

Interviewee: "Store of iron bars"; Interviewer: "Do you sell iron bars?"; Interviewee: "Yes, I do"
Interviewee: "Bakery"; Interviewer: "Do you bake bread?"; Interviewee: "Yes, I do"

When the answer is very general so it does not allow you to identify the specific activity of the company, business, or workplace, request more detailed information; for example:

Interviewee: "I do repairs"; Interviewer: "What type of repairs?"; Interviewee: "I repair computers"
Interviewee: "I make furniture"; Interviewer: "What type of furniture?"; Interviewee: "I make wood furniture"

Question 17
Enterprises and establishments by industrial sectors

This question should be answered by the person who answered "Yes" to question number 15. This question should be asked for the person, about the type of economic activities of enterprises based on their main output and services. This question should be asked as following:
What kind of economic activity does your enterprise engage with?
What kind of main output and services does your enterprise produce?


All employed persons should be asked three questions about their employment. These should cover occupation, industry or sector of employment and employment status.

The following should be taken into account to check the truth of information about main activity of the establishment or enterprise which they work for: Namely,

1. The main activity of the enterprise or establishment needs to be clarified by very detailed information. For instance, if the enterprise is engaged with the trade, what kind of goods and products they trade, is it wholesale or retail trade, should be asked. If it is a service establishment, what kind of services they do?

2. Whether or not the establishment is independent at the management and financial level should be noted. If the establishment or enterprise has many branches inside of it but has an integrated management and finances, the branches and units should be included in the main activity.

For instance, the carpet company "Ulaanbaatar" has an employee cafeteria, hospital and shop which sell their own products. Those units do not report to each other and have independent accounting.

One part of its ownership could be rented for a shop. In this case, the main activity of a doctor who works at the hospital, cook who works at the employee cafeteria, would be a "carpet production". If a salesperson works at a rental supermarket, the main activity of the establishment or enterprise would be a retail trade of main food stuffs because the retail shops/supermarket has management and financial independence.

For example, the "Erel" company has four branches /daughter companies/ namely, "Erel industry", "Erel bank", Construction and Mining company.

[p. 25 diagram not presented here.]

[p. 26]

In this case, the main activity of the officer who works at the bank of "Erel" company, would be "banking". The main activity of the people who works at the mining would be "quarrying."

If the establishment or enterprise is engaged with more than one economic activity such as a bar, shop, Berber, coiffeur, or billiard, the main activity would be defined by the branch that hires the most employees.

[p. 26 diagram not presented here.]

3. The main activity of private enterprise needs to be defined with details. Namely,
a) retail trade of food stuffs
b) public transportation
c) transportation
d) textile
e) livestock sector
f) agricultural sector


[p. 27]

4. The main activity of paid employment needs to be clarified with details.
a) housekeeping
b) baby nursing
c) livestock
d) agriculture
e) public transportation


5. The main activity of people who work at an educational institution should be detailed according to the following:
a) institution of primary education
b) institution of secondary education
c) institution of higher education
d) institution of other educational activities


6. The main activity of hospital service.

7. The main activity of the legislative, executive institution and its local branches.

8. The main activity of person who works at foreign services, defense, social order, national security organization should be defined as state service.

Guideline to fill Questions number 15-19 of the Questionnaire

The enumerator should fill out the questions related to the employment and main activity of enterprise, with many details (not general) and make it easy to understand for coding people. In the employment section, if the person is a teacher, it should be clarified by asking what does he or she teaches? There is an example to make it more understandable.

A. The main activity of person should be detailed. For instance, the person would say his or her employment as a manager and should indicate his or her main activity as an "industry and trade". In this case, the enumerator should ask if he is a sales manager or general manager and at which division does he or she work for? What kind of economic activity does your enterprise do?

[p. 30]

15. Did you work last week? Yes-1
16. Job: Advertisement manager
17. Main activity of the enterprise and establishment: Sale and production of salami and meat product
18. Employment status: Contract worker-1

It should be clarified by asking "Do you have salary? Do you own this enterprise? If he or she does not own this enterprise or contributed his or her own property to this enterprise, he or she will be defined as a contract worker.

2. If a person owns that enterprise, the main activity of the enterprise will remain the same as a "trade" and his or her employment would be a "sales person". It should be clarified with many details that trade is wholesale, retail trade or intellectual work trade. For instance, wholesale of vegetables, retail trade of shoes in the black market.

15. Did you work last week? Yes-1
16. Job: Vegetables salesperson
17. Main activity of the enterprise and establishment: Wholesale trade of vegetables
18. Employment status: Contract worker-1

In this case, the person who works in the wholesale trade of vegetables as a salesperson is a contract worker because he or she gets paid working as a salesperson. It must be clarified that whose property is in this trade, if he or she did not contribute any property to this trade, he or she will be defined as a contract employer.

3. Occupational jobs should be clarified in a very detailed manner, too. If the person is an operator, it should be clarified what kind of machine or equipment operator does he or she do? For instance, the person who works at "Hotol cement" company as an operator, he or she should answer own employment as following:

15. Did you work last week? Yes-1
16. Job: Equipment operator of cement production
17. Main activity of the enterprise and establishment: Cement company
18. Employment status: Cooperative member-4

In this case, it is understandable or certain, a person who works at a cement company as a paid employer and his or her employment status will be defined as a contract employer.

[p. 31]

B. Example to fill in the questions about employment of person who work at more than one job

1. If a person worked at more than one job one week prior to the reference period, the main job should be registered in the questionnaire. The main job is the one that was worked at the longest during the reference period (1 week) of the census. If the worked hours at both jobs is the same, then the job with the higher income will be registered in the questionnaire. For instance, accountant Ms. Dulmaa works at a commercial bank as a general accountant but also works at small private shop as a accountant, the main job will be a general accountant and the main economic activity will be registered as an "activity of monetary circulation".

15. Did you work last week? Yes-1
16. Job: General accountant
17. Main activity of the enterprise and establishment: Activity of monetary circulation
18. Employment status: Contract worker-1

In this case, Ms. Dulmaa works at the commercial bank as a general accountant and she is a contract worker. Because she gets paid working as a general accountant, it should be clarified whose property is in the commercial bank, and if she did not contribute any property to this bank, her employment will be defined as a contract employer.

C. An example to fill the questions about self-employed person.

1. Questions 15-18, related to the employment of person aged 15 and over who works at household businesses (livestock, farming etc) except the head of households, should be filled out as follows:

15. Did you work last week? Yes-1
16. Job: Herder
17. Main activity of the enterprise and establishment: Livestock sector
18. Employment status: Unpaid family worker-5

People who do not get paid from their work in a household business should have their employment status defined as "unpaid family worker". The employment status of those people cannot be defined as "self-employed" because they are participating in their own household business but are not engaged with any industrial activity that is independent.

[p. 32]

2. If a person engages in the household business and hires any other household members permanently, the employment status of the head of household will be defined as a" employer" not self-employed.

15. Did you work last week? Yes-1
16. Job: Owner
17. Main activity of the enterprise and establishment: Livestock sector
18. Employment status: Unpaid family worker-5

The employment status of the person who is engaged in retail trade, craftsman or service without any permission, will be filled out as "self-employed" because they are engaged with their own business that is independent. If a person says that he or she works at a car cleaning service, it should be clarified by asking, what kind of car does he/she clean, where does he or she work?

15. Did you work last week? Yes-1
16. Job: Car cleaner
17. Main activity of the enterprise and establishment: Livestock sector
18. Employment status: Self-employed-3

Labor force section
The Labor Force section is applicable to all persons 10 years and above. For respondents age below 10 years you will skip the section, leave it blank.

Question 24: Industry

181. Ask "what is the major product or service produced in the organization/enterprise where [the respondent] mainly worked during the last 12 months?"

182. Industry is the branch of economic activity carried out at the person's place of work. This is defined in terms of the kind of goods produced or services supplied by the enterprise in which the person works and NOT necessarily the specific duties or functions of the person's job. For example, in the case of a contract cook working in a canteen in a factory that makes television sets? The industry should be manufacture of electrical goods. But her occupation is a cook at worker place. Using such examples you would record construction/electrical installation, baking of bread, repair of boats/yacht, activities of trust company or retail banking, etc. There are cases where some people may also inform you that they are engaged in illegal activities like stealing, prostitution, you will have to record this as well. Your role is to get the correct information, write it down then coding will be done in the office in Naypyitaw.

183. For the corresponding main occupation in question 23 indicate the name of the business carried out by the employer. If it is not obvious from the name, or the business has no name, you should clearly indicate what the employer makes or does. Some employers are engaged in more than one industry (e.g. Government) therefore it is important to specify the type of industry that relates to the person for whom you are recording information. Write the name of the business or the department in government. Examples of various industries are provided below. Probe to find out the name of the business and the main type of activities carried out there.

[p. 43]

184. Your job is to write a legible and concise description of the type of business carried out where the person works. Errors in the classification of industries could occur when you do not give adequate or complete descriptions of the type of business. For example, inaccuracies may arise if you describe the business of an establishment by the occupation of the person employed there rather than the activity that is carried out within the business.

____

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

The following should be taken into consideration while asking questions of column 17, 18, 19 and 20.
a. If the number of months by summing category 1, 2, and 3 of column 16 >= 6 (six months or more), then the questions on columns 17, 18 and 19 should be asked and the question 20 should not be asked.

b. If the number of months by summing category 1, 2, and 3 of column 16 is less than six months and more than 0 month, then the questions on columns 17, 18, 19 and 20 should be asked.

c. If number of months of category1 of column 16 = 0 and number of months of category 4 of column 16 =12, then the questions on columns 17, 18, 19 should not be asked but the questions on column 20 should be asked.


Column 18: Where did ____ do the work? (Industry)

The location where the person does the work indicates in which economic unit or organization the enumerated people do the actual work that is mentioned in column 17. To find the industry, the name of work place sector (Industry sector) should be written in this column. The place of work intends to determine the industry. Industry for the census purpose refers to the principal type of economic activity of the establishment (goods and services produced by the establishment) in which an individual worked during the reference period. The industry mentioned here is used to find out the manpower of the country who was engaged in different industry sectors.

"Where" does not mean the place like Hetauda, Pokhara, or Dhulikhel. It means the different sectors of economic activities that produce goods and services. The sector of economic activity is divided into 17 industry groups. For example: agriculture, mining, electricity, gas and water, construction, trade, personal and social service, transport, etc. To write the answer of where did ..... do the work, it should be mentioned the place of work done by the enumerated people: the name of organization/corporation, the establishment and the production of goods and services. For example, "Central Bureau of Statistics, data collection, tabulation, etc."

Nobody must be double-counted or missing: female/male, boy/girl and their ages.

Examples

1. Who is doing agriculture, the place of work done (industry) and production can be written as: "own land, cereal crop, vegetable crop". Who is doing the cultivation in other people's land: "other's land, cereal crop, vegetable crop, cash crop" should be written. If they were doing livestock or poultry, then "livestock, own farm", "other's farm", etc.

2. The job of the doctor of general medicine is health checkup and treatment. If the treatment and health checkup was done in health organization then his/her industry is health and social work or personal and community service. So, to write industry, hospital or health organization, health service should be written. Here, hospital or health organization is personal and community service. Industry and the production of goods and service is health service.

But if the doctor was doing health checkup and treatment of the workers in the establishment of cloth, then industry should be manufacturing industry. "Where was the job done?" should be written as: "establishment of cloth, cloth production".

3. Only by the name of the organization we cannot understand the nature of the work of that organization. For example: "Sangrila and company". It is not clear by the name of this organization what work was done by this organization. So, if this organization was doing the transportation work, then to write the answer of this question, first should be written the name of the company and then it should be mentioned "transport service". For the employees of Nepal Telecom, it should be written as "Nepal Telecom, communication service"
If the enumerated people were doing retail service, then for the answer of the question "where did do the job" it should be written "own shop, retail service". But if this job was done in the sales office of Trade Corporation, it should be written "national trade corporation, trade". If the enumerated person was employed on daily wage on the personal house, then for the industry it should be written as "personal house" and mentioned the work done by her/him. For example: making quilt, mattress etc. If the enumerated person was ploughing the field of another, then for the answer of the question "what did you do in the reference period", it should be written clearly as "personal field ploughing, cereal crop or vegetable crop production" or similar other production, whatever they produce.

Work, economic activity, economically active/inactive manpower (columns 22-26)
Five questions from columns 22-26 are related to economic and non-economic activities. Ask these questions to the people usually living in the family and aged 10 years or older.

Column 24: where did [the respondent] do that economic activity?
Economic activity means the area of industry where the person performed the works stated in column 23. It does not refer to places like Hetauda, Pokhar, or Dhulikhel. It refers to the area of economic activity that produces goods or services. Hence, write the name of the industry and the goods or services it produces. For example, Central Bureau of Statistics - data collection and entry; Patan hospital - health service, etc. and such area of industry should be written in this column. Here, area of industry means the area of goods or service production that a person is individually or with a group engaged. The industry written here helps to categorize the country's manpower with their area of industry/business. Sectors of industries have been divided into 17 different industries. For example - agriculture and forest, mining, electricity, gas and water, construction, trade, individual and social service, transportation, etc.

Example -

1. While writing an area of business and production for the people in agriculture/farming, write "in own land - cereal crops, vegetable crops." If working in others land, write "in others farm - cereal crops, vegetable crops, or cash crops." If doing livestock rearing "in own shed/farm - livestock," "in others' farm/shed - livestock."

2. The works of a general medicine doctor are treatment and health checkup. If a person works in a hospital or any other health institution in the sector of treatment or health checkup, the works of such person would be health and social work or personal and community services. And while writing it, write as "district hospital or health institution - health service." Here hospital or health institution is included in the personal and community services - industry and its service or product is health service. But, if the doctor has been doing treatment or health checkup for the workers of garment industry, then the industry would be manufacturing industry. And the response for place of work should be written as "garment industry - garment production."

[p. 92]

3. The nature of work cannot be identified only by name in the case of some of the industry. E.g. From the "sangrila and company" name the nature of work cannot be determined. Therefore, if the company has done transportation of goods, write the business of a person working there as "cangrila and company - transportation service." For the person working in Nepal Telecom, write "Nepal Telecom - communication services."

Write the response of a person working in his own retail shop/grocery as "own shop/ grocery - retail trade of food items". But if the selling job has been done at depot of the food corporation, write "food corporation - food items selling." In the case of the people working in a wage basis or as a laborer, if they did the work in a private house, write "in private house - carpenter work." If a person has done plowing job in the reference time period, write the response "in others farm - paddy production," if planting/seedling cereal or vegetable, write "in others farm - cereal or vegetable production" or similar kind of production as it is.

Note: Do not write anything below in four small boxes under the response writing blank area. These boxes are only for coding purpose.

Economic characteristics
The questions included in this section (type of activity, principal occupation, industry, and employment status) are designed to investigate the population that participates in the production of goods and economic services, the occupational structure, the economic sector where the occupations are carried out, employment status, and the related demographic and social characteristics. The structure of the population that does not participate in the production of goods and economic services and demographic and social characteristics of this population are also investigated.

[p. 57]

Because of these objectives, questions 14, 15, 16, and 17 are only presented to those persons age 10 or older.


Question #16: Industry
This question is only presented to those who declared an occupation in question 15.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


Questions only for persons who are age 10 or older
The goals of these questions are to know the current marital status of the persons and the principal economic characteristics of the population that participated in the production of goods and services, as well as those who are dedicated to non-economic activities, such as: household chores, studying, etc.

If the person is younger than 10, continue with the next person.


Question 17: Branch of activity
We understand branch of economic activity as the activity of the establishment in which an employed person worked during the reference week or during the person's work before becoming unemployed.

This means that you will ask about what was done at the factory, industry, workshop, farm, or establishment where the person did some type of work.

Describe, in the corresponding space, the activity of the establishment in which the enumerated person carried out the principal occupation declared in question 15.

In different situations we may find some artisans, roaming salespersons, those who have a vending position in the street, and persons who carry out some economic activity in their homes; the majority of them work as self-employed, as is the case of those who sell at stoplights. These persons do not have an establishment where they carry out their work, and therefore generally their branch of activity in which they work is going to be the same as the description of their principal occupation.

Do not forget that you should note that to which activity the business, store, company, office or place where the person worked is dedicated to doing. If the person did not work in any of these places, you should note what the person manufactured, repaired, cleaned, sold, transported, cultivated, or did.

When you describe the branch of activity, do not use general terms such as: Factory, ranch, workshop, store, etc.

You should clearly explain as shown in these examples:

  • Factory: Shirt factory, footwear factory, factory of food products, clothing factory, factory of plastic products
  • Workshop: Sewing workshop, automobile repair shop, lathe workshop, shoe workshop, carpentry workshop
  • Farm: Coffee farm, corn farm, tobacco farm, cattle ranch, bean farm


The information about the branch of economic activity of the establishment where the person works is important for knowing the productive structure of the country.

Whenever it is answerable, you should not leave this space blank.

Principal job
This is the occupation at which the person spends most time in a week. If the person spends an equal amount of time at two occupations, the principal job is the one which provides more income. If the time spent at work and the income are the same, it is the one which the person considers most important.

Occupation
This is the trade or job at which the person spends his/her time.

Branch of activity
This is the activity of the place or establishment in which a person worked in the last week, or worked before becoming unemployed. Ask the person what the factory, industry, workshop, farm or establishment where the person worked did.


For persons age 10 or older (Questions 19-31)


Question 30. What is the primary activity of the place or establishment where [the person] works/worked?

Write clearly and with full details what the place of work or establishment (business, farm, store, company, office) where the person works/worked does.

Keep in mind that there are cases where the person says that s/he works for him/herself (either in the dwelling or not), in which case the branch of activity is generally similar to the occupation; the description will therefore be the same. Examples are a street vendor of vegetables, someone who washes and irons for others, a plumber, etc.

Special situations in occupation and branch of activity:
a) If a person states that s/he works for himself washing and ironing for another person, and s/he does the work in his/her own dwelling or another dwelling, write "Hand launderers and ironers" as the branch of activity.

b) If the security guards [CPF] of security companies (such as ServiPro, El Vigilante, Ultranic, etc.) perform their jobs in places such as stores, shopping malls, banks, the Social Security Institute, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, etc., write down "Doormen, security guards and related" in question 30.

Section 3: Labour

In this section, we collect information on the labor activities of men, women and children in the household. It is important not to confuse labor activities with a person's main activity. These are not the same things. A person's main activity may be to be a housewife or a student, but they may have other labor activities that should be recorded in this section. For example, a wife who has her own plots or her own small business should not be excluded from this section, even if she primarily works in domestic activities. Domestic activities are not included in this section of the questionnaire, but her other activities would be included, even though she may consider being a housewife her “job”. A child who is a student may consider themselves to be primarily a student without a job, but they may help their parents as unpaid family labor with their businesses or agricultural activities. For example, if a child works on his parent's farm or in their carpentry shop, the child's farming or carpentry activities should be included, even if the child does not receive payment directly for the work.

Respondent: This section concerns all household members aged 5 and above. You should confirm eligibility of the household members to respond to the questions. For children under 12, the parents or adult member of the household could answer on their behalf. Where some household members are absent, proceed with the interview for all those present but make the necessary arrangements to call back and continue the interview with absentee members after ascertaining the appropriate time that they would be available. If it is not possible to interview the person directly, a proxy response is possible.

Questions 14 - 15: The economic activities in the main jobs and the employers should be indicated by the respondents.

For persons 10 years old or older
(Apply to questions 14 to 25)

The questions that form this Section are meant to get information about the participation of the population 10 years old or older in the economic activities of this country.
The questions relating to the chapter are applied to the situation existing in the week immediately before the day of the Census (reference week). Reference week is defined below:
Definition of "Reference Week" or "Last Week": It is the complete calendar week, from Sunday to Saturday that, for census purposes goes from May 4, 1980 to May 10, 1980.
The answers obtained in question 13 are the basis for classifying the population of persons 10 years old or older as:
1. Economically active (employed and unemployed).
2. Not economically active (homemaker, student, disabled, retired, pensioner, rentier, others inactive).


[p. 80]

1. Economically active population
This group is understood to be the population of 10 years old or older who supply the workforce available for the production of goods and services of the country and is divided into Employed and Unemployed.

1.1 Employed Population: is understood to be persons who:

a) Have an occupation or job remunerated in money or in kind, during the reference week.
b) Have a private business or job on their own account. Example: The owner of a grocery store, the farmer, the lawyer who has his own practice, etc.
c) Works regularly in a business or company of a member of their family even when not drawing a wage or salary (Contributing family worker).
d) Sell tickets, newspapers, or any other article; make food to sell; wash cars; shine shoes; sew in their house for others; the kind of work, time worked or amount of money that they receive during the reference week does not matter.
e) Have a steady remunerated job but do not work during the reference week because of temporary circumstances: sickness or accident; vacation; work conflicts such as: bad weather; machine breakdowns, strike, on leave, etc.

1.2 Unemployed population: This group constitutes persons who do not have a remunerated occupation or job during reference week, but:

a) Have worked before and look for work (visits employment agencies or offices in search of work, consults friends about the availability of work, is relying on ads in newspapers, that is to say, makes the effort with the goal of finding employment).


[p. 81]

b) Are not looking for work because they have a job that will begin on a previously appointed date.
c) Look for their first job or that is "New Workers". The oldest age for a "New Worker" is 45.

2. Not economically active population
This group is understood to be the flowing persons:

2.1 Homemaker: The person who is dedicated only and exclusively to domestic tasks and chores in their own home and were not looking for work, nor were they retired, pensioned, living on investments, or attending school. In a dwelling there can be more than one homemaker.
2.2 Student: The person who is dedicated exclusively to studying.
2.3 Invalid: The person who is found to be physically or mentally impeded from working.
2.4 Retired: The person who has stopped working and is receiving retirement income.
2.5 Pensioned, rentier: The person who receives auxiliary or pensioned income (pensioned). Equally include in this group all the persons who without working receive money or investments from a business or company (rentier). Do not include persons who receive pension for food, divorce, etc.
2.6 Retired without benefits: Include in this group the persons who in some opportunity had a job but currently are separated from all type of economic activity without receiving retirement benefits or a pension.
2.7 Other condition: The person who without being classified in any of the groups above does not do any economic activity and remains idle.

When classifying the population, special care should be taken with the persons of the female sex who declare themselves to be "Homemaker" and those who declare themselves to be [p. 82] students. In the first case they sometimes also do remunerated jobs like: cleaning, ironing, sewing, styling hair, painting fingernails, making candy etc. in their own home or outside it but because they spend little time in these labors they forget to give this information.
On the other hand, some students after class or on weekends dedicate themselves to cleaning shoes, selling newspapers, washing cars etc. Equal care should be taken with the spouse or companion or the children of farm families, who regularly help with the agricultural labors but do not declare this job.
For reasons already explained, it is necessary that before classifying the population, the enumerator investigates more to find out if the parson did some work during the reference week. If is made known that the person worked during this period, even when it was part time, it should be classified as Employed, that corresponds to the population who is Economically Active.


Question 19 What does this business establishment or company do?

This question applies to both "employed" and "unemployed" persons.

Write with the best precision the class of activity which was done at the business, establishment or company whose name was written down in question 18.
Examples:
Question 18 / Question 19
El Sol Supermarket / Sale of provisions
Rita Industries / Manufacture of clothes
Law Office of Ramos and Sánchez / legal or counseling services

For persons who work or have worked in companies, institutions businesses
established in the Canal Area, write down the activity which [p. 87] these companies, institutions or businesses did such as the following examples:
