2. Instructions for answering questions

g. Appliances at the household's disposal
The importance of the data on appliances which are at the disposal of the household lies in the information obtained on the standard of living of families from different localities and different types of places. This information, together with other data, is used by the Central Bureau of Statistics to determine the standard of living grades of localities or areas in the localities. This information is an important factor in the distribution of government budgets and other budgets (such as: Mifal HaPayis - the National Lottery) to the local authorities.
Question 10.70-10.210 - Now I will ask you if you have the following items:

Television, VCR/DVD, clothes dryer, dishwasher, microwave, air conditioner, solar water heater, personal computer or laptop, internet subscription, phone line (such as: Bezeq, Hot), number of phone lines, cellular phone, number of cellular phones, vehicle, number of vehicles.

- These questions examine the existence of these items and not necessarily their ownership. In other words, an item can be considered as available for the person's use even if he does not own it. For example: a person lives in a rented apartment where there is a washing machine that belongs to the landlord, or a person who got a cellular phone from his workplace.
- Write the respondent's answer even if he says a certain item is not at his disposal and you see the item in the apartment.
- If there are two or more households in the apartment and the appliances in the apartment are used by all the people living in it - each household should state that these items are at its disposal.
- VCR/DVD - VCR does not refer to a video camera, but to a device for recording and screening video tapes.
- Personal computer or laptop - does not refer to palm computers, but to desktop computers (PC) or laptops.
- Internet connection - only refers to internet connection from the apartment (and not general use of internet. For example: a person who has internet connection at work).
- Number of phone lines - if a household has more than nine phone lines, write 9.
- Number of cellular phones - if a household has over ten phones, write 10.
- Number of vehicles - if a household has over nine vehicles, write 9.

Question 7: what facilities are available in this house? (Multiple responses are possible and accepted)

[] 1 Radio
[] 2 Television
[] 3 Cable television
[] 4 Computer
[] 5 Internet
[] 6 Telephone
[] 7 Mobile phone
[] 8 Motor
[] 9 Motorcycle
[] 10 Cycle
[] 11 Other vehicle
[] 12 Refrigerator
[] 13 Not any above

This question is trying to understand whether the family has modern household facilities as stated above. The references 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 denote items related to communication, information and entertainment, references 8, 9, 10 and 11 denote transportation items, and reference 12 denotes refrigerator. Such facilities in a family might be one or more than one. Thus, ask the family about each reference items and circle the references if they have such facilities. For example, if the family have radio, circle the reference 1 and if they also have cycle, circle the reference 10, too. Similarly, if they have other facilities such as television and mobile phone, then circle the reference 2 and reference 7 respectively.

These services in the family generally have to be in use and they should be working / not be stopped working in the day of enumeration. But if the item can be simply repaired and it can work but not working at the time of enumeration, then such stuffs should be considered working.

For example, if the family have motorcycle and it is in good condition, but has got a puncture or plug is not working or general malfunction, and hence put in the house without using, but can be used with simple repair and the family is planning to use it after some repair, in such case even the family has not using at the time of enumeration, the motorcycle should be considered as a facility the family have. However, if the motorcycle is in very bad condition and cannot be used with simple repair and there is no certainty whether to use it or not in the future, in such case it is considered that they family do not have a motorcycle. Similar conditions apply to other remaining facilities.

The materials / stuffs of those services have been generally described below:

5. Internet - If there is facility of sharing the email and other information through Internet either using computer or other means in the family, it should be considered as having Internet. Generally the Internet is used through a computer. However, with the development of technology, there is increased use of Internet through PDA and mobile phones. If the family has such service from home, it should be considered that this family have Internet service and circle the reference 5.

(H-10) Household goods: Does the household have any of the following?
Mark each item/facility that the household has with an X.

All these items should be in working order. If the person can receive calls on the landline telephone or cell phone but cannot use the phone to make calls, this still qualifies as a "Yes".

Mark the "Yes" box for cell phones if at least one member of the household has the full-time use of one.

If more than one household has the right to use an item, e.g., a refrigerator or a computer in a common space, mark the "Yes" box.

The purpose is not to look at the number of items in the dwelling unit, but rather to measure how many households have access to these items.

In order to have Internet facilities, the person should also have a computer and a cell phone and/or a landline telephone. We are referring to Internet facilities and a computer in the household not those that the person may have access to at work.

Section 10 - Individual use of information and communication technology

10.5. Internet

The Internet is a world-wide public computer network. It provides access to a number of communication services including the World Wide Web and carries e-mail, news, entertainment and data files, irrespective of the device used (not assumed to be only via a computer - it may also be by mobile phone, PDA, games machine, digital TV etc.). Access can be via a fixed or mobile network.

Section 11 - Housing

11.12. Household access to Internet

Internet access from home refers to the ability of the household to connect to the public Internet using TCP/IP protocols. Internet access at home is meant to include both narrowband and broadband connections. Broadband may be defined loosely as transmission capacity with sufficient bandwidth to permit combined provision of voice, data and video. The lower limit of broadband access is set at 256Kbit/sec as the sum of uploading and downloading capacities. It is implemented mainly through xDSL, cable, wireless local area network, satellite broadband Internet or fiber-to-the-home Internet access. Narrowband access is typically carried up through dial-up, modems, ISDNs and some mobile cellular phones.

Note that since households can use more than one type of access service, multiple responses are possible.

(i) Narrowband - Narrowband includes analogue modem (dial-up via standard phone line), ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network), DSL at speeds below 256 kilobits per second and mobile phone and other forms of access with a download speed of less than 256 kilobits per second

(ii) ISDN - ISDN stands for "Integrated Services Digital Network." ISDN is a data transfer technology that can transfer data significantly faster than a dial-up modem. ISDN enables wide-bandwidth digital transmission over the public telephone network, which means more data can be sent at one time. A typical ISDN connection can support transfer

[p.35]

rates of 64 kilobits or 128 kilobits of data per second. While these speeds are faster than what you can get with a dial-up modem, the newer DSL technology can support even faster transfer rates.

(iii) Dial Up (Analogue) - Dial-up refers to an Internet connection that is established using a modem that connects the computer to standard phone lines, which serve as the data transfer medium. When a user initiates a dial-up connection, the modem dials a phone number of an Internet Service Provider that is designated to receive dial-up calls. The ISP then establishes the connection, which usually takes about ten seconds and is accompanied by several beeping and buzzing sounds.

(iv) Broadband - This refers to high-speed data transmission in which a single cable can carry a large amount of data at once. The most common types of Internet broadband connections are cable modems (which use the same connection as cable TV) and DSL modems (which use your existing phone line). Because of its multiple channel capacity, broadband has started to replace narrowband, the single-channel technology originally used in most computer networks.

(v) DSL - Stands for "Digital Subscriber Line." It is a medium for transferring data over regular phone lines and can be used to connect to the Internet. It is much faster than the dial up connection and allows download speeds of up to about 1.5 megabits (not megabytes) per second, and upload speeds of 128 kilobits per second.

(vi) Cable Modem - A cable modem is used for connecting to the Internet and is much faster than a typical dial-up modem. Cable modems support data transfer rates of up to 30 Mbps, over 500 times faster. A cable modem does not connect to a phone line but to a local cable TV line. This allows a continuous connection to the Internet.

(vii) Mobile broadband - Mobile broadband refers to technologies at speeds of at least 256 kilobits per second, in one or both directions, such us Wideband CDMA Access which can be via any device (handheld computer, laptop or mobile cellular telephone etc.).

Note that since households can use more than one type of access service, multiple responses are possible.

(i) Narrowband - Narrowband includes analogue modem (dial-up via standard phone line), ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network), DSL at speeds below 256 kilobits per second and mobile phone and other forms of access with a download speed of less than 256 kilobits per second

(ii) ISDN - ISDN stands for "Integrated Services Digital Network." ISDN is a data transfer technology that can transfer data significantly faster than a dial-up modem. ISDN enables wide-bandwidth digital transmission over the public telephone network, which means more data can be sent at one time. A typical ISDN connection can support transfer

[p.35]

rates of 64 kilobits or 128 kilobits of data per second. While these speeds are faster than what you can get with a dial-up modem, the newer DSL technology can support even faster transfer rates.

(iii) Dial Up (Analogue) - Dial-up refers to an Internet connection that is established using a modem that connects the computer to standard phone lines, which serve as the data transfer medium. When a user initiates a dial-up connection, the modem dials a phone number of an Internet Service Provider that is designated to receive dial-up calls. The ISP then establishes the connection, which usually takes about ten seconds and is accompanied by several beeping and buzzing sounds.

(iv) Broadband - This refers to high-speed data transmission in which a single cable can carry a large amount of data at once. The most common types of Internet broadband connections are cable modems (which use the same connection as cable TV) and DSL modems (which use your existing phone line). Because of its multiple channel capacity, broadband has started to replace narrowband, the single-channel technology originally used in most computer networks.

(v) DSL - Stands for "Digital Subscriber Line." It is a medium for transferring data over regular phone lines and can be used to connect to the Internet. It is much faster than the dial up connection and allows download speeds of up to about 1.5 megabits (not megabytes) per second, and upload speeds of 128 kilobits per second.

(vi) Cable Modem - A cable modem is used for connecting to the Internet and is much faster than a typical dial-up modem. Cable modems support data transfer rates of up to 30 Mbps, over 500 times faster. A cable modem does not connect to a phone line but to a local cable TV line. This allows a continuous connection to the Internet.

(vii) Mobile broadband - Mobile broadband refers to technologies at speeds of at least 256 kilobits per second, in one or both directions, such us Wideband CDMA Access which can be via any device (handheld computer, laptop or mobile cellular telephone etc.).

21. Does this household have [the following appliances]?

By determining the possession (or lack) of certain electrical household appliances, it is possible to classify the household in terms of features and comfort. Similarly, it serves as a way to check the declared income.

In order to be considered possessions, the appliances must be in working order.

Complementing the list of appliances are means of communication and locomotion (without considering animal-drawn vehicles or bicycles) that allows the identification of special situations.

Within the means of communication, the landline and the cellular phone are included.

The refrigerator refers to the cooling unit, whether or not it has a freezer. The item freezer refers to the possession of the apparatus that only freezes (and is not incorporated to a refrigerator).

Automobiles should be of private use and it must work (with the exception of momentary breakage) in order to be considered. On the other hand, vehicles that are used only for working (taxis, delivery trucks) will not be considered; that's to say only take into consideration those of family use or those that, in addition to work purposes, are alsos used for private purposes.

[p. 33]

In the case of color TV, computer or laptop, cellular phone, automobile, or truck and motorcycle you must indicate the quantity of units. In the case of the telephone, keep in mind that the number of telephone lines (and not the number of apparatuses) is solicited.

It's important to clarify that a code must always be circled: those that are not marked will be considered as an error of the interviewer. While you should not assume the absence of items, act with tact and discretion in the consultation. In a precarious dwelling where there is not electricity, for example, it is unlikely that the household will possess many of the listed items.

7.3.6 Comfort and Household Equipment

Does this household have . . .?

The objective of this question is to evaluate the equipment and comfort of the households.

Act with tact and discretion in the consultation. Do not assume absences of some of the elements asked about due to the external characteristics of the dwelling. You should mark "yes" or "no" for each one of the elements.

You must also consider only the goods that are in working condition, beyond simply momentary break-downs and independently of whether or not they are owned by the household.

  • Water heater or boiler: Select the option "yes" if the household has
  • a means to heat the water that allows its storage at a determined temperature, without mattering the type of energy used for heating the water.
  • gas heater that provides hot water for heating as well as direct use, in the bathroom or the kitchen
  • a system known as "centralized hot water"
  • Instant water heater: a unit for heating water that is activated when it detects the circulation of water or the user connects it to initiate the heating. As opposed to the water heater or boiler, it does not store the hot water. An example are the Rialco-brand heaters or the "chuveiros" although there are other commercial brands.
[p. 84]
  • Refrigerator or freezer: This indiscriminately includes the common refrigerator, the refrigerator with freezer, or only the freezer. There are machines of this kind that function with gas or kerosene (that don't consume electrical energy). If this is the case, you must select "yes."
  • Machine-operated clothes dryer: An electrical appliance that dries clothing with the circulation of hot air.
  • Radio: Consider any type of radio apparatus, including battery or integrated to another apparatus (for example a MP3 with FM radio)
  • Color TV, how many? Consider any type of television: common, Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) or plasma. Record the quantity of the televisions (TV) that the household has and that are in working order. If the household does not have color TV mark 0. If the household has 10 or more televisions that work, record 9.
  • Landline (fixed phone): Record "yes" in case the household has at least one ANTEL telephone line.
[p. 85]
  • Cell phone: Record "yes" if at least one member of the household has a cell phone.
  • XO from CEIBAL Plan, how many? Record the quantity of Ceibal Plan machines that the household has. If the household does not have any, record 0. If the household has ten or more XO that are working, record 9.
  • PCs or laptops, how many? This includes desktop computers (PC), notebooks (laptops), netbooks or similar (for example, iPad). The Plan Ceibal machines are not included, since they are examined in the previous question. Note the quantity of PCs or of laptops that the household has. In case the household does not have any, record 0. If the household has 10 or more PCs that work, record 9.
  • Internet access: Mark "yes" if the household has access to internet, whether via broadband (fixed or mobile) or via dial-up or Plan Ceibal. Keep in mind that the access must be achieved from the dwelling that you are interviewing. Record the option "No" if the members of the household most move to a place outside of the dwelling in order to connect to the internet. If the informant declares that he/she receives the internet signal from a neighbor (for example by capturing the Wi-Fi signal) you should select the option "Yes."
  • Mopeds or motorcycles, how many? Record the quantity of the mopeds or motorcycles that the household has for private use or if by using it for some type of job it is also available for use by the household (for example: a motorcycle used to deliver food but that, in some moment of the day, is available for private use of the household). If the household does not have one, record 0. If the household has 10 or more, record 9.
[p. 86]
  • Automobiles or trucks, how many? Record the quantity of automobiles or trucks that the household has available for private use, or if by using it for some type of work it is also available for use by the household. If the household does not have one, record 0.
