Section 1 - Population
Columns P1 to P18 -- These should provide particulars of all members who slept in the household/institution on census night. They therefore apply to all persons.


Column P10 -- Secondary language
94. A secondary language is one that is acquired through learning and is spoken as a second language. It could be any language, Sierra Leonean or foreign. Some people may not have a secondary language because apart from their mother tongue, they do not speak any other language. In such a case, record code 20, for "None". The aspect of speaking the secondary language fluently must be stressed.

95. The question you must therefore ask is, "Apart from your mother tongue, what other language do you speak?"

96. Some people are gifted and can communicate in more than one secondary language. The question requires only one answer and the respondent should
