Q15. What is the total area of your dwelling unit, in square meters? _ _ _ _ (includes non-sleeping spaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, balconies, etc.)

What is the total living space of your dwelling unit, in square meters? _ _ _ _ (includes sleeping space only)

B.15 How much is the space of your dwelling unit (sq/m)?

Here the space of whole dwelling unit is noted. The sum of the square meter is written in total figures without decimal figures. The writing is done in figures (for example 5, 13, 44, 105 and so on).

The space of the personal house or dormitory is determined by the total square meter of the rooms and additional buildings (kitchens, halls, bathrooms, cellars) excluding the square meter of the additional closets and halls.

For those who live in dormitories, the space of the place they use is determined by the total square meter of the rooms they use in the dormitory. In the dormitories, the space of the additional buildings used by the dweller is determined by dividing the whole sum of the square meter into the number of beds/places.

For example; if the space of the additional buildings of the dormitory is 506 sq/m and the number of the beds is 103, then each person has 5sq/m (4,913, which is rounded).

The space of the staircases, halls, entrances, stuck out buildings and the places used by stoves, additional buildings that are not heated (balcony, attic, veranda) are not included in the whole space of the building.

Also the square meters of the rooms of security, serving personnel, teachers, nurses and the buildings of everyday repairs and other necessities (reception area, hairdressing saloon, shop) are not included in the whole square meter of the dormitories, nursing homes.

The dwelling space comprises of the square meters of all the rooms used in the household not including the space of the inbuilt closets. If the household uses only part of the room, then the space of the whole room used by the household must be written (for example; if three people live in dormitory in 15sq/m space and each of them is a separate household, then 5sq/m falls to each of them.

If the household uses the part of the space and rents the other part then the whole space that belongs to them as well as the part that is used by the household is written.

B6. The floor space area of the dwelling in square meters ___

Questions for the households

Sections B, C and D are to be filled out by occupied households.

Question B.6

How much is the space of your dwelling unit (sq/m)?

Here the total space of dwelling unit in the square meter is written in total figures without decimal figures. The writing is done in figures (for example 5, 13, 44, 105 and so on).

The total space of the personal house or dormitory is determined by the total square meter of the rooms and additional buildings (kitchens, halls, bathrooms, cellars) including the square meter of the additional closets and halls.

For those who live in dormitories the total square meter of the rooms they use in the dormitory determines the space of the place they use.

In the dormitories the space of the additional buildings used by the dweller is determined by dividing the total sum of the square meter into the number of beds/places.

For example, if the space of the additional buildings of the dormitory is 506 sq./m and the number of the beds is 103, then 5sq/m (4,913, which is rounded) falls to each person.

The space of the staircases, halls, entrances, stuck out buildings and the places used by stoves, additional buildings that are not heated (balcony, attic, veranda) is not included in the total space of the building.

In the total square meter of the dormitories, nursing homes, boarding schools, orphanages the square meter of the rooms of security, serving personnel, teachers, nurses and the buildings of everyday repairs and other necessities (reception area, hairdressing saloon, shop) is not included in the total space of the building.

The dwelling space comprises of the square meter of the all used rooms in the house and does not include the space of the inbuilt closets. If the household uses only the part of the room then the space of the whole room must be written which is used by the household (for example, if three people live in dormitory in 15sq/m space and each of them is a separate household, then 5sq/m of space belongs to each household.

If the household occupies the part of the space and the other part is to be let for rent then the whole space that household occupies is written.

If any of the conveniences is missing temporarily in the dwelling unit (because of being out of order, being under repair or for other reasons), then the building is considered to be equipped with that type of the conveniences.

5. Floor space of the housing unit:

(rooms used for business and guest rooms: see remarks)

Full m2 _ _

5, Usable floor space:

The usable floor space of the housing unit is the sum of the area of all living rooms, kitchens and adjoining rooms.

For all residential buildings with only one housing unit hallway space, stairways, etc. should be included. Open balconies and terraces as well as basements and attics should not be included in the usable floor space unless they are equipped for living purposes.

Rooms that are rented out to tourists only seasonally should be included, not however, commercially used rooms and rooms rented out to tourists that are never used for individual living purposes.

Enumerator guideline:

Some occupants are not going to know the usable floor space of their housing unit. In such cases, the entry of an estimate is still better than no entry.

Purpose of the question:

The living space per person in Austria increased from an average of 22 sq.m. to 28 sq.m. between 1971 and 1981. How large will the increase between 1981 and 1991 be? Are the differences between individual states or other regions going to increase or is equalization going to take place?

[p. 57]

What about differences in the living space by different population groups?

Other results become convincing in connection with this question: e.g. the number of residents, housing costs for rental housing units.

2. Useable floor space in housing unit

Please exclude rooms constantly used for commercial purposes and rooms rented out to boarders:

Total sq.m. ____

Total sq.m. ____

2. Usable floor space in housing unit:

Explanation: Please enter only whole numbers for the square meters in the data field and no decimal points or dashes.

The usable floor space of the housing unit is the sum of all inhabitable rooms, kitchens, and adjoining rooms. For all single family homes, the floor space of hallways, stairways, etc. should be included here. Open balconies and terraces as well as cellars and attics should not be included in the count unless they are equipped for living purposes.

Rooms that are rented out to tourists only seasonally should be included, but not commercially used rooms and rooms rented out to tourists that are never lived in by the household.

Some occupants are not going to know (exactly) the usable floor space of their housing unit. In such cases, the entry of a (rough) estimate is still better than no entry.

[p. 57]

The living space per person in Austria increased from an average of 28 sq.m. to 33 sq.m. between 1981 and 1991. How large is the difference between 1991 and 2001 going to be? Are the differences between individual states or other regions going to increase or is an equalization going to take place? What about differences in the living space by different population groups?

Other results become convincing in connection with this question (e.g. the number of residents).

Questions 5 - 7 to be completed for the household

7. Floor space (m2)

[] a) Useful

[] b) Living

[] b) Living

Questions 5P - 7P. are to be completed for households.

Before completing questions 5P - 7P, in a special box of the line "No. of the first member of the household within the dwelling" the serial number is to be entered, under which the person recorded first in the household is specified in column 1 of section 1 of the list of residents in the dwelling. In accordance with the example given on page 10, the following numbers of "the first members of households within the dwelling" are to be inserted: for Tikhonov's household -- No. 1, for Rulev's household -- No. 3, for Bulgakhov's household -- No. 4.

Question 7P. Floor space (sq. m)

The size of useful and living space is to be recorded here.

The space is to be recorded in integer numbers of square metres without decimal digits. The records are to be done in numbers (e.g., 9, 27, 103) in a special box.

To round a fractional space to the integer number, the following rules are to be observed: if there is five tenths and more after the decimal sign, then one is to be added to the integer part, if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded. (e.g., numbers 23.50; 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23).

Useful floor space in a detached house, separated or shared flat is determined as the sum of floor areas of all habitable rooms (including heated and appropriate for habitation attics, verandahs, terraces) and back rooms (kitchens, halls, anterooms, indoor corridors, bath (shower) rooms, toilets, pantries or built-in closets). Herewith in shared flats the useful space of the whole flat is to be conventionally recorded only for one household, which is specified first within this flat. For other households sharing the flat the useful space is not to be recorded (only the living space occupied by the household is subject to recording).

Useful floor space falling on residents in a hostel is measured as the sum of the living space occupied by a household and its share of the back rooms space of the hostel. This part is calculated for one person by dividing the whole space of backrooms of the hostel by the number of beds. E.g., the floor space of backrooms in the hostel is 500 sq. m. and the number of beds is 100. In this case 5 sq. m. of the backroom space fall on one person. The useful floor space for the service staff living in institutions is to be calculated similarly.

The useful floor space does not include:

- staircases, porches, lift lobbies, vestibules, corridors (excluding inner corridors), entrance halls;

- scarcements, and heating furnaces;

- unheated rooms (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);

- detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.

- scarcements, and heating furnaces;

- unheated rooms (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);

- detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.

Living floor space includes the space of all habitable rooms occupied by a household excluding the space of built-in closets.

If a household occupies part of the room, the space of this part is to be recorded (e.g., if the room is 24 sq. m in area and is occupied by two households consisting of 1 person and two persons, then 8 sq. m and 16 sq. m fall on each household respectively).

The living space of the service staff living in boarding houses for the aged and invalids, children's homes and similar institutions is to be determined in a similar way.

If a household gives part of the space in rent, the total space, both useful and living, including that rented, is to be recorded for it.

20.4. In question 4 "Please specify the total useful floor area of your one-apartment residential house or apartment":

- The size of the total area should be completed in square meters with whole numbers (e.g., 9, 27, 103);

- When rounding a fractional size of floor area to the nearest whole number the following rules are to be observed: if after the decimal sign, five or more tenths follow, then one is to be added to the integer part, but if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded (e.g., numbers 23.50 and 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23);

- The total floor area of a residential unit (apartment or one-apartment residential house) is determined as the sum of floor spaces of all habitable and utility rooms (including kitchens, entrance halls, indoor corridors and staircases, bath (shower) rooms, toilets, pantries or built-in closets) and also attics, verandahs, terraces, etc;

- When rounding a fractional size of floor area to the nearest whole number the following rules are to be observed: if after the decimal sign, five or more tenths follow, then one is to be added to the integer part, but if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded (e.g., numbers 23.50 and 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23);

Directions for filling out the housing list

Section B: Information on the rooms of the residence

Living rooms are rooms that are intended for living purposes. Included are living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, studies and nurseries.

A kitchen, where meals are taken or where a sleeping accommodation is present, is not considered a living room. It should be entered under "kitchen/kitchenette."

Adjoining rooms outside the residence, for example, attics and basement rooms, are not recorded with the census and for that reasons are also not included in the determination of the area.

Regarding the determination of the area in section B

Determine the area of every room in square meters. Do not estimate the area, rather measure the length and width of every room.

Example calculation: length X width = area

5.5m X 4.2m = 23.1 meters squared.

For rooms whose layout deviates from a square or rectangle (e.g. living room with bay), only the area should be entered.

If a room has slanted walls or ceilings (e.g. in a penthouse), then of the entire area of the room, only that area over which the room height amounts to at least 1.8 meters should be stated.

The area of a kitchen or kitchenette that is shared by two or more households in the residence should only be stated once. The same goes for other shared rooms in the residence.

Determine the area of every room in square meters. Do not estimate the area, rather measure the length and width of every room.

Example calculation: length X width = area

5.5m X 4.2m = 23.1 meters squared.

For rooms whose layout deviates from a square or rectangle (e.g. living room with bay), only the area should be entered.

If a room has slanted walls or ceilings (e.g. in a penthouse), then of the entire area of the room, only that area over which the room height amounts to at least 1.8 meters should be stated.

The area of a kitchen or kitchenette that is shared by two or more households in the residence should only be stated once. The same goes for other shared rooms in the residence.

Do not count size of the cellar, attic, garage, balcony, terrace

I. Dwelling data

8. How much is the total floor-space of the dwelling?

The sum of the floor spaces of all the premises belonging to the dwelling, expressed in meters squared (m2).

The floor space of entrance-halls (wind-gags, wraps), built-in cupboards, changing rooms (wardrobes), store-rooms, furniture of kitchens and bathrooms must all be calculated in the useful floor space of the dwelling.

If the summer kitchen is taken into account as a kitchen then its floor space must be calculated in the total useful floor space of the dwelling.

In case of loggias, roofed (closed) terraces and roofed (closed) balconies, half of the floor space must be included, while the floor space of attics (mansards) must be only included where the headroom is 1,9 m2 or higher.

Balconies, basements, attics, and storage rooms, garages outside the dwelling are considered as parts of the dwelling thus their floor-space must not be calculated in the total useful floor-space. Inside galleries do not extend the total floor space of the dwelling either.

Premises, e.g. summer kitchens that are built to be part of the dwelling and are used by the household living in the main building must be considered a part of the dwelling.

The premises of shops, workshops, restaurants etc. that are built or converted for the purpose of inhabitation even if they are accessible through a door of the dwelling or on an inside staircase must not be considered a part of the dwelling.

In case the exact size of the floor-space is not known it must be estimated.

Q.9 Floor area size

____ [square meters]

Question 9: Floor area

Fill in the floor area occupied by the household in square meters rounded to the nearest integer.

Floor area is the total area of each living space under the roof that the household occupies and uses for its daily needs. Based on this concept, those buildings that are not used for the daily needs of the household such as barns and grain storage areas are not included in the calculation of the floor area of the living quarters. On the other hand, for multi-story buildings, the floor areas of all levels used by the household must be included in the calculation of floor area of the living quarters.

8. Floor area

____ square meters

Question 8: Floor area

Floor area is the dimension of the floor that is lived on and is used for everyday use by the household members, including the terrace, garage, WC and storage room in a single census building. For a two story building, the floor is all stories that are lived in and used for everyday use, and needs to be calculated.

Calculate the whole dimension of the building floor that is occupied by the household in square meters (rounded figures). If several households occupy one census building, the dimension of the floor that is used together could be divided by the number of households that use them. If there are two separate buildings that are occupied by one household and are still in one segment group, the dimension of the floor is calculated as a whole.

IV. Household information

412. Floor area

_ _ _ square meters

6.4. Block IV. Household characteristics

This block is used to record the household characteristics, such as household income one year ago, type of physical building, status of residence ownership also other household facilities.

Floor area is the area of the floor that is occupied and used for everyday use by the household members, including the terrace, garage, WC and storage room in one census building. For a two story building, the floor area consists of all stories that are occupied and used for everyday use.

Calculate the whole area of the building floor that is occupied by the household in square meters (rounded figures). If several households occupy one census building, the area of floor that is used together should be divided by the number of households that uses it. If there are two separate buildings that are occupied by one household and it is still in one segment group, the area of the floor is calculated as a whole.

Example:

Mr. Harris lives with his wife and two children in one census building. In that census building also lives Fatimah, a student that rents a room (3x4 sq. meters) who takes care of her own meals. Besides the room, Fatimah may use the bathroom owned by Mr. Harris's family that is (3x3 sq. meters) and she is also allowed to watch TV in the living room (4x5 sq. meters). Mr. Harris and his wife have a room (4x4 sq. meters) and both of their children sleep in a room of (3x4 sq. meters). Mrs. Harris cooks in a kitchen that is (2x4 sq. meters) and only Mr. Harris's family may receive guests in the living room which is (3x3 sq. meters).

From this example the content of P412 is:

Mr. Harris's household = 59.5 sq. meters, in box P412 = 060

Fatimah's household = 26.5 sq. meters, in box P412 = 026

519. Floor area

Question 519: Floor area

Carefully calculate the floor area of the living quarters where the respondent lives. Write the result on the dotted line in square meters and fill in the numbers in the three boxes provided.

Floor area is the total area of each living space under the roof which the household occupies and uses for daily needs by the household, including porches, garages, laundry areas, toilets, storage areas, and all floors on all levels for multi-storied buildings in one census building. Special spaces for business, for example food stall, restaurant, shop, salon, barn, area for drying clothes, grain storage area, and others such as these are not included.

Note:

- If one census building is occupied by several households, then the common floor area that is used by all households is divided equally among the households that use it.
- If there are two separate buildings occupied by one household within one census block, then the floor area must include the floor area of all buildings. For multi-story buildings, the floor area is the sum of the floor area of all levels occupied.
- Gardens that have a roof or those located inside or beside the living quarter but still under the roof should be included in the floor area.

Example:

Mr. Rudi, his wife and two children live in one census building. Kamila a student rents a room (3 x 4 square meters) in the same census building and is responsible for her own meals. In addition to the bedroom, Kamila is allowed to use the Rudi family bathroom (3 x 3 square meters), and may watch TV in the family room (4 x 5 square meters). Meanwhile Mr. Rudi and his wife have a bedroom (4 x 4 square meters), and

[p. 86]

his children have a bedroom (3 x 4 square meters). Everyday Mrs. Rudi cooks in the kitchen (2 x 4 square meters), and only Mr. Rudi's family may accept guest in the sitting room (3 x 3 square meters).

From this example, Q 505 will be filled out as follows:

Mr. Rudi's household floor area = 9/2 + 20/2 + 16 + 12 + 8 + 9 = 59.5 square meters, write the number 060 in the boxes provided for Q 505.

Kamila's household floor area = 12 + 9/2 + 20/2 = 26.5 square meters, write the number 026 in the boxes provided for Q 505.

402. Floor area of this living quarter?

_ _ _ _ square meters

Question 402: Floor Area

Carefully calculate floor area of the dwelling of the respondent's household. Write the result in square meters.

Floor Area is the total area of all floors from each part of the building (under the roof) which is occupied and used for the daily needs by the household, including a terrace, garage, place for washing, toilet, storage area, and includes all floors in a storied building that are in one census building.

The floor area of a dwelling of a household does not include a special area for some endeavor/venture, food stall, shop, beauty salon, place for livestock, place for drying clothing (even though cemented), place for storing grain, etc. For a storied building the floor area is the total floor area including all levels which are occupied.

[p. 154]

Note:

1. If one census building is occupied by several households, the floor area which is used by all of the households is divided by the number of households which use it.

2. If there are 2 separate buildings occupied by one household and they are both in the same census block, then the floor area is calculated including the floor area of both buildings.

3. If there is an indoor garden or a garden beside the house but still under the roof, then these areas are used to calculate the total floor area.

4. If the floor area is more than 9998 m2 enter 9998 as the area.

2. If there are 2 separate buildings occupied by one household and they are both in the same census block, then the floor area is calculated including the floor area of both buildings.

3. If there is an indoor garden or a garden beside the house but still under the roof, then these areas are used to calculate the total floor area.

4. If the floor area is more than 9998 m2 enter 9998 as the area.

Example:

Mr. Rudi lives with his wife and 2 children in one census building. Kamila also lives in this census building; she is a university student who rents a room which measures (3x4) m2 and manages her food by herself. In addition to that room, Kamila also uses the bathroom which is owned by Mr. Rudi's family which measures (3 x 3) m2, and she may also watch TV in the family room which measures (4 x 5) m2. Mr. Rudi and his wife occupy a room measuring (4 x 4) m2, and their children occupy a room measuring (3 x 4) m2. The wife of Mr. Rudi cooks on a daily basis in the kitchen which measures (2 x 4) m2, and only Mr. Rudi's family may receive guests in the guest room which is (3 x 3) m2.

In this example, the answer to Q402 would be:

Mr. Rudi's household = 9/2 + 20/2 + 16 + 12 + 8 + 9 = 59.5 m2; enter 0060 in the boxes for Q402.

Kamila's household = 12+ 9/2 + 20/2 = 26.5 m2; enter 0026 in the boxes for Q402.

35. General explanation about Questions 45 through 55

Fill these questions only for those households who live in a conventional residential unit (box 1 question 44) and leave it blank for households living in other types of units.

42. Housing unit's floor area (square meters), Question 51

Housing unit's floor area means the total built area with roof in the housing unit like a room, kitchen, bathroom, toilet, storage, pantry, closet, etc.

In apartment building units, the unit's floor area means the area of the unit excluding the common areas like garage, pilot, corridor, stairs, etc. In these units, all the spaces related to the unit are considered for the floor area, even if they are located outside of it, like storage.

In housing units other than apartments, all the built areas (like the garage, corridor, etc.) are included in the floor area.

- Note in rural areas not to include spaces in the household's place of residence that are related to farming activities and animal husbandry like stables in the floor area.

Ask the floor area in square meters and mark the relevant box. For example, if the unit is 49 square meters, mark box 1, and if the floor area is 105 square meters, mark box 5. If the respondent is not aware of the floor area, with his help and the geometric shape and dimensions of rooms and other parts of the unit, try to calculate the floor area and mark the appropriate box.

123. Housing unit area (in square meters) _ _ _

[Question 123 was asked of persons who lived in occupied private or collective household, per Question 116.]

The area of the housing unit:

It refers to the area where the housing unit is erected in square meters and does not include the ground or air around the building.

Question 123 - the area of the housing unit is square meters:

This question is about the entire area of the housing unit. This means to the standing building with its ceiling and what it comprises. The area does not include the garden surrounding the housing unit or the non-built ground around it. The area is recorded in the reserved place using square meters. If the area of the housing unit is 125, the enumerator records the number 125. The enumerator has to consider that some housing units could consist of two floors or more. In this case, the enumerator should add the area of the floors and records the total area in the reserved field in three cells. If the area of the housing unit is 999 meters and more, number 997 is recorded.

Question 6p. Floor space of the dwelling occupied (sq. m)

Completing the answer to this question, the enumerator is to record in a special box in integer numbers (without decimal digits) the number of square meters of useful and living floor space occupied by the household.

To round fractional space to integer numbers the following rules are to be observed: if there are five or more tenths after the decimal sign, then one is to be added to the integer part, if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded. (e.g., numbers 23.50 or 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23).

Useful floor space in a detached house, separate or common (communal) flat is determined as the sum of floor areas of all living rooms (including heated and appropriate for habitation attics, verandahs, terraces) and back rooms (kitchens, halls, anterooms, indoor corridors, bath (shower) rooms, toilets, pantries or built-in closets).

Herewith in common (communal) flats the useful space of the whole flat is by convention to be only recorded for one household, which is specified first within this flat.

Useful floor space falling on residents in hostels is measured as the sum of the living space occupied by a household and its share of the back rooms space of the hostel. This part is calculated for one person by dividing the whole space of backrooms of the hostel by the number of beds. E.g., the floor space of backrooms in a hostel is 500 sq. m. and the number of beds is 100. In this case the share of the backroom space for one person is 5 sq. m.

The useful floor space does not include:

- staircases, porches, lift lobbies, vestibules, corridors (excluding inner corridors), entrance halls;
- built-on unheated rooms (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);
- detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.

Living floor space includes the space of all living rooms occupied by a household excluding the space of built-in closets.

If a household occupies part of room, the space of this part is to be recorded (e.g., if the room is 24 sq. m in area and is occupied by two households consisting of 1 person and two persons, then 8 sq. m and 16 sq. m fall on each household respectively).

If a household gives part of the space occupied in rent, the total space, both useful and living, including that rented, is to be recorded for it.

If a household rents dwelling, the enumerator is also to record for it the actually occupied useful and living space.

Question 9. Floor space

To answer this question the enumerator is to record in special boxes the size of useful and living floor space occupied by the household, including that used for other purposes, in square metres (in integer numbers without decimal digits).

In rounding a fractional floor space to the nearest integer the following rules are to be observed: if after the decimal sign follow five or more tenths, then one is to be added to the integer part; if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded (e.g., numbers 23.50 and 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23).

Useful floor space is to be recorded in integer numbers of square meters for each detached house, separate or shared (communal) flat or a room or flat in a hostel. It is determined as the sum of floor spaces of all habitable rooms (including spaces of attics, verandahs, terraces, which are heated and appropriate for habitation the year round) and back rooms (kitchens, halls, anterooms, indoor corridors, bath (shower) rooms, toilets, pantries or built-in closets).

It should be noted that detached bath houses, summer kitchens, sheds, pantries, and cellars are not to be included in the useful floor space of a detached house.

Useful floor space accounted for residents in hostels is measured as the sum of living space occupied by a household and its share in the back rooms space of the hostel.

The share of the back rooms space in a hostel per one person is calculated by dividing the whole space of backrooms of the hostel by the number of beds. E.g., the floor space of backrooms in a hostel is 500 sq. m. and the number of beds is 100. In this case, the share of the backroom space per one person is 5 sq. m.

Useful floor space (m2) does not include:

- staircases, lift lobbies, vestibules, corridors (excluding inner corridors), entrance halls;

- attached and unheated spaces (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);

- detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.

- attached and unheated spaces (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);

- detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.

Living floor space is to be recorded in integer numbers of square meters and should include the space of all habitable rooms occupied by a household excluding the space of built-in closets. Living floor space does not include the spaces of: kitchens, lobbies, corridors, bath and shower rooms, pantries, balconies, loggias, and other back rooms.

If a household gives part of the space occupied in rent, the total space, both useful and living, including that rented, is to be recorded.

If a household rents a houseroom, also the floor space actually occupied, including both useful and living, is to be recorded.

"including floor space used for other purposes": the floor space is to be included, which is used for stores, cafes, barbershops, car repair shops, etc.

Question Q54: What is the total area of this house?

The purpose of this question is to figure out the total area of the house that the household is living in, in accordance with the construction permit or the surveyor's actual house size measurement.

The total area of the house is the width multiplied by the length of the house. The principle of calculating the total area of the house is as follows:

1) If the household lives in a single-story house, it can be calculated as a single sum, or the size of each room can be calculated and summed up later.

2) If the household lives in a house with two floors or more, the total area of the house is equal to the sum of the total area of each floor.

3) If the household lives in two or more houses, the total area of the house is equal to the total area of all the houses.

4) If there are many households living together, each household must state only the area where they actually live.

2) If the household lives in a house with two floors or more, the total area of the house is equal to the sum of the total area of each floor.

3) If the household lives in two or more houses, the total area of the house is equal to the total area of all the houses.

4) If there are many households living together, each household must state only the area where they actually live.

The surveyor must write down the area of the house in 3 digits in the blank space correctly, clearly, and in an easy-to-understand manner, such as: 7 m2=007; 65 m2 = 065.

For example: Buonsong Nanthavong's house has a total living area of 96 m2 with 5 rooms (bedroom, dining room, sitting room, kitchen, and living room). Therefore, the surveyor must write down the answers in the questionnaire as shown in the table below:

6. Data concerning useful total floor space of the dwelling may be taken from the auxiliary form filled in by the lodger (user of dwelling). During the census session, the census enumerator leaves such forms in all the visited dwellings for the inhabitants to provide the census office with additional pieces of information, among others, with the calculations concerning floor space. The said form incorporates tips and hints on how to calculate the value in question. The responsibility of the census enumerator is to familiarize himself or herself with those pieces of information.

Before transferring the said data from the auxiliary form to the main one, the census enumerator shall at first visit all the habitable spaces in the dwelling and check whether or not the measurements specified in the former are acceptable and plausible. If there are certain doubts about the validity of calculations or the lodger has not filled in the auxiliary form, the census enumerator shall ask for a document containing the said information to be presented to him or her. If such documentation is available, then the enumerator shall transfer data provided therein to the main form. If there is no accessible notification justifying the provided useful floor space, the enumerator shall ask the lodger to measure the space in all the rooms. If possible, the former shall help and support the user of dwelling in the performance of the said task. Data concerning total floor space shall be provided in full square meters after proper rounding off. Decimals from 1 to 4 shall be neglected and 5 to 9 considered to be full meters. For example, for values from 45.1 m2 to 45.4 m2, the 45 m2 value shall be provided and for 45.5 m2 to 45.9 m2 46 m2.

Characteristics of the dwelling

5. Total useful floor space of dwelling ____

Sum of floor space of all the rooms -- rooms, kitchens with or without window, antechambers, bathrooms, toilets, larders etc. The answer should be given at full square meter precision.

Characteristics of the Dwelling

15. Total useful floor space of dwelling (question 5) [p.18]

Useful dwelling's space is the sum of all rooms' space, of kitchen with or without window, hall (vestibule), bathroom, toilet, pantry, agricultural chamber, enclosed porch and passage and all other rooms which are located in the constructional building.

In agricultural type buildings, the area of vestibule is also counted as dwelling's useable space. The vestibule shouldn't be included in the total useful space of dwelling and it is not considered as a part of dwelling, if:

- The vestibule connects occupational part of dwelling with agricultural one.

- There is a hall used despite the vestibule.

- There are more flats in the housing, and the vestibule serves as a public hall accessible for all inhabitants.

- There is a hall used despite the vestibule.

- There are more flats in the housing, and the vestibule serves as a public hall accessible for all inhabitants.

Total space of rooms and other spaces, and therefore -- the total space of usable housing's space includes the space built-up by closets, furnaces plus the space of niches and crumbling.

In single-family dwellings, which are still in construction, but are also inhabited in a part, the total usable space of the housing should include only rooms which are fully finished and furnished.

The total useful space of the dwelling shouldn't include:

- Rooms and other spaces, which are registered as pension (12, point 9).

- Rooms used only for professional purposes, if such rooms have a separate entrance from the street, yard, or generally accessible hall.

- Porches and passages, which haven't got walls from floor to ceiling (glassed walls should be treated as walls.

- Rooms and other spaces which are significantly damaged which cannot be used for occupational purposes and are not occupied.

- Rooms used only for professional purposes, if such rooms have a separate entrance from the street, yard, or generally accessible hall.

- Porches and passages, which haven't got walls from floor to ceiling (glassed walls should be treated as walls.

- Rooms and other spaces which are significantly damaged which cannot be used for occupational purposes and are not occupied.

Area of all rooms and other facilities built-in the roof's construction should be specified as following:

- Area with roof on the height of 2m should be measured in total.

- Area with roof on the height of 1, 10 to 1, 99 m should be measured in half.

- Area with roof on the height less than 1, 10 m shouldn't be measured at all.

- Area with roof on the height of 1, 10 to 1, 99 m should be measured in half.

- Area with roof on the height less than 1, 10 m shouldn't be measured at all.

Data about the usable space of dwelling should be rewritten from the table on the supportive form. Before registering this information, the enumerator should evaluate, whether such a space is probable. If the enumerator will state that such measurements are invalid, and in the case, if an inhabitant did not prepare information about dwelling's measurements, the enumerator should ask about this document. If the inhabitant has such document, then data contained on it should be considered as reliable and information should be rewritten directly into the A form. In the case, when the document is lacking, the inhabitant should be asked to measure the dwelling by himself, providing that the enumerator should support him both with measurement and calculations.

Data about space should be written down in full cubic meters, and the number after the coma should be rounded off according to the following principle: 0, 1 to 0, 4 cubic meters should be removed and measurements from 0, 5 to 0, 9 cubic meters should be rounded off to full 1 cubic meter, so while having measurements of 45, 1 -- 45, 4 -- 45 should be written down, and in the case of 45, 5 -45, 9 -- 46.

5. The enumeration of the characteristics of the dwellings and buildings will be conducted by the enumerators based on the owners, principal tenants or others members of the household statement. The surface of the floor space of the rooms and other dependencies of the dwellings will be enumerated by the enumerator based on the enumeration in LM questionnaire after checking these data made during November-December 15, 1976, by representatives of city halls. If this questionnaire did not exist due to the fact that the dwelling was built after December 15 or by omission, the enumerator shall record in the census questionnaire the number of rooms and surface of the floor space of rooms and other areas of the dwellings, according to the legal papers held by the owner or main tenant. If these papers do not exist, the recording will be made from direct measurement.

40. Dependencies and other spaces (item 17).

In the table from item 17 the surface and the modality of using those dependencies and other spaces belonging to the dwelling (by a single household or in common with other households), as well as their location (inside the dwelling, outside, but inside the building or outside the building) will be recorded.

On the form are printed (in the column "Name of the space" the names of the main dependencies (kitchen, bathroom, flush toilet), remaining that on the free rows to be written by the enumerator also the other spaces of this kind, by codifying also on the "Code" column, the corresponding code for each.

In order to identify these spaces, not considered as habitable rooms, it has to be taken into consideration the following:

[p. 29]

The kitchen is a room that has been designated and equipped for the preparation of the meals, situated inside the dwelling or outside, having adequate cooking facilities.

The dwellings having only summer-time kitchens--during the winter cooking is done in one of the living rooms--is considered without kitchen.

For the dwellings having several kitchens available, all of them will be recorded, the data for the best equipped being written on the number 72 row, the others being written on the empty rows which will also be numbered as 72.

The bathroom is a space, situated in or out of the dwelling, designated to assure the body's hygiene, having special bathing facilities to this purpose as: bathtub, with or without shower or sink.

A bathroom will also be considered as:

a) the room designated to this purpose, having water supply facility and sewerage, but not yet fixed the bathing facilities (bathtub, shower and sink) and it is not used for other purposes;

b) the room within the dwelling, where the traditional means are used for body's washing, characteristic to a certain zone (steam bath), and not used for other purposes; the bathrooms having both bath tub and shower, will be considered with bath tub;

c) the room having special bathing facilities (showers, sinks) even if this space is used, mainly to other purposes (laundry).

b) the room within the dwelling, where the traditional means are used for body's washing, characteristic to a certain zone (steam bath), and not used for other purposes; the bathrooms having both bath tub and shower, will be considered with bath tub;

c) the room having special bathing facilities (showers, sinks) even if this space is used, mainly to other purposes (laundry).

The following will not be considered a bathroom: the room having only the sink, and used, mainly, for other purposes (bedroom, kitchen, laundry, etc.).

When a dwelling has several bathrooms, all of them will be recorded, the data for the best equipped being written on the number 73/74 row, the others being written on the empty rows, which will also be numbered as 73/74.

Correlations -- when the code 73 (bath tub) or at code 74 (only shower) from item 17 "Dependencies and other spaces," the code entry is 1 for the location, it is necessary that to the item 10a (the water supply system location) has an x marked in the box code 1 (inside the dwelling) and code 1 or 2 at the item 12 (sewerage facilities within housing unit). In addition, if for those dependencies from item17, the code 2 or 3was written for item 10a, the code 2 or 3should be written correspondingly.

Flush toilets will be recorded regardless of if they are modern water closets having a water tank and waste water that empties into a piped system, or if they are so called "dry" latrines- no water used and evacuation as in cesspools. If they are located inside a room, regardless of construction materials of walls (bricks, beams etc.), the toilets situated within the bathroom or within a separate room will be recorded.

On the form, the flush toilets from bathrooms (code 75), as well as the ones from separated rooms (having water -- code 76 and without water -- code 77) located inside the dwelling, outside, but inside the building or outside the building will be recorded.

For the dwellings that have more than one flush toilet data will be recorded on the free rows for each toilet being indicated the code 76 or 77 by case. For the codes 75 and 76, it will be followed the same correlations as for the codes 73 and 74.

[p. 30]

a) Verandah (code 78) is a closed space of windows, built at the ground floor of the building in its area, along the wall from the entrance of the dwelling;

b) Vestibule (code 79) (entry, glass porches) is a passage or hall between the outer door and the other spaces inside of the building (from staircase, corridor, yard or the street and other rooms of the house). It usually is a space with indirect light and has a smaller size where only a rack of clothes would fit;

c) Tinda (code 80) is a typical Romanian rural entrance, the first hall of a peasant's house- used as passage between two living rooms, sometime serving either as a kitchen and dining room too (if the dwelling has not a kitchen, the tinda will be recorded as kitchen -- code 72 at item 17), and as - very seldom- as bedroom;

d) Uninhabitable hall (code 81) is a space designated to connect the vestibule from the entrance with the other rooms of the dwelling, not fulfilling the requirements for size of the surface, height and light of a regular living room;

e) The corridor (passage) (code 82) is a long and narrow space designed as a passage between several rooms (for living, accessories) and could be used as a space for the outdoor connection;

f) The office (code 83) is a space inside the dwelling, between the kitchen or the bathroom and the habitable rooms, serving as an intermediary passage between the rooms;

g) The larder for food storage (code 84) is a space inside or outdoor space, designated to preserve food needed by the household's members;

h) Lumber Box-Room (code 85) small closed space, inside the dwelling, without direct light or air, used for storage of the various housing things;

i) Logia (code 85) is a space build-up in the framework of the building, being covered, or free open on external side of the house (sometime is covered by an arch or a series of arches supported by the columns);

j) Covered terrace (also code 85) is a platform for passing, opened to the outside, located at the level of an apartment or situated on the house's roof, it is considered to be a logia;

k) The box (code 87) is a small space, located usually on the building's basement (only those will be recorded), where usually are kept housekeeping tools, food, fuel etc.

For dwellings having more than one of such spaces, each of them will be recorded on a distinct row (inside item 17) that also indicates the code number.

The enumerator has the obligation of transcribing each of those dependencies/spaces according to their designation; he will transcribe the data referring to surfaces from Lm form or other documents, after a thorough checking, or through direct measurements, following the existing provisions at paragraph 5 from the present handbook.

In the case of a common sharing of the main dependencies by persons living in 2 or more dwellings, the dependencies located outside the dwellings, will be recorded for each dwelling only by using (code 2 -- in common) those and their location (code 2 -- outside the dwelling, but inside the building or code 3 -- outside the building). In this situation, for the column regarding surfaces, a line will be drawn.

If the kitchen, bathroom or flush toilet are located inside of a dwelling, but are commonly used by other dwellings' occupants, the surface of the dependency will be written only for the dwelling where is located.

[p. 31]

The other dependencies or spaces located outside the dwelling (excluding kitchen, bathroom or flush toilet) that are used in common by the occupants of two or more dwellings will not be recorded data on the LP form.

Dependencies and other isolated spaces from the building will be recorded for item 17 only if they are built from resistant material (brick, concrete, beams etc.), except the flush toilets, for which the construction material is not important.

On the "Total" row the total surface/living floor space of all the dependencies and other spaces from the dwelling will be written.

No questionnaire text is available for this sample.

16. Floor space in square meters

____

16. The total floor space is to be entered including kitchen, kitchenette, bathroom, toilette storage, hall ways, veranda. If the measurements cannot be done precisely, estimate the floor space (length x width of dwelling). Not to be included are terraces and open balconies, unoccupied basement and attic rooms, nor separate rooms counted in question 15.

2. Living Areas (square meters)

_ _ _ (Bedroom, dining room, waiting room etc)

[Questions 45-52 were asked of households that have and are representing the dwelling, as per questions 43 and 44.]

47. How many square meters is the total floor space of the house/flat?

Floor space (square meters): _ _ _

Question 47: How many square meters is the floor space of this house / flat?

For a one-floor house, the enumerator records the floor space, including where there are walls (parts covered by a ceiling/roof); in case the house/flat has common walls/pillars with another dwelling, then only half of the space of the common walls/pillars is counted.

For a multi-floor house, the enumerator records the space (parts covered by a ceiling/roof) of all floors; in case each floor has common walls/pillars with another dwelling, then only half of the space of the common walls/pillars is counted.

The parts of the floors and ground which are not surrounded by walls/ceiling and not used for habitation will not be counted. In case there is a space with a height of 2.1 meters between the ground and ceiling/roof and is surrounded by walls/ceiling and used for habitation, it is counted. The enumerator asks the question, in combination with viewing, to record the total area (in square meters) of its floor space in the 3 printed boxes.

[Graphic example omitted]

[pg.65]

Note: In rural areas, people do not know the floor space of their houses. Hence, the enumerator must estimate the floor space to record the answer. The enumerator can estimate by counting the number of bricks (if the floor is covered by square bricks) and recording the width and length of a brick, converting the results into meters and then multiplying the width and length (in meters) to obtain the space. In case the floor is not covered by bricks, the enumerator can estimate by counting footsteps or using strings or sticks to measure.

Part 3. Information on housing

54. How many square meters is that total building floor space of this dwelling or flat?

_ _ _ floor space (squared meters)

Part V: Instructions on how to question and record information on the census form

Part 3: Information about housing

The DTV collects information about the housing situation of the household. Do not collect housing information for specific demographics.

Question 53: Is the house/apartment that your household is living in a condominium or a discrete house? How many separate bedrooms does this house/apartment have?

Question 54: How many square meters is the total livable space of the house/apartment?

The DTV asks to determine the total actual livable space of the house/apartment, not based on the total floor space on papers and records.

- For apartments: Is the total floor space of the building used for living by the household (including the floor space with walls dividing the apartment inside the condominium including the area of balconies and loggias (if any) attached to that apartment; excluding the wall surrounding the condominium, dividing walls between apartments, floor area with columns, technical boxes located inside the apartment), and the common area for the households living in the condominium such as: space for stairs, common corridors, walkways, security rooms, culture rooms, ...

- For discrete houses (including villas): Is the total area used for living by the household, including the space for bedrooms, living rooms, reading rooms, entertainment, etc ...; excluding detached buildings within the premises of the household's house such as: Livestock barns, kitchens, toilets, and warehouses are built separately...

- For discrete houses (including villas): Is the total area used for living by the household, including the space for bedrooms, living rooms, reading rooms, entertainment, etc ...; excluding detached buildings within the premises of the household's house such as: Livestock barns, kitchens, toilets, and warehouses are built separately...

- For single-story houses: The total area used for living is the total floor space of the house including the walls (the part with the ceiling, the roof) of that house; if the house shares walls or column frames (with another house or with the general activities area of the surrounding houses), only 1/2 of the ground area of that wall or column frame is counted.

- For multi-story houses: The total area used for living is the combined area of all the floors; if the house shares walls and column frames (with another house or with the general activities area of the surrounding houses) on each floor, only 1/2 of the floor area of that shared wall or column frame is counted.

[p.76]- For multi-story houses: The total area used for living is the combined area of all the floors; if the house shares walls and column frames (with another house or with the general activities area of the surrounding houses) on each floor, only 1/2 of the floor area of that shared wall or column frame is counted.

- The floor and under the floor area that are not covered and are not used for living, are excluded. If the space under the floor is 2.1 m or higher, is 4 m2 or larger, covered and used for living, then it should be included. The DTV asked in combination with observations to record the size (m2) in the blank.

Note: As for loft, the area is calculated when it is 2.1 m or higher, has a minimum area of 4 m2, and is used for living.

Some notes in determining the total usable area of the house/apartment:

- If the household does not know or cannot determine the usable area of the house/apartment, the DTV must estimate to record the information. DTV estimates by: Count the number of rows of tiles (if the floor is tiled with square tiles) of length and width to calculate the area; measure in footsteps or use wire or a stick to measure the length and width to calculate the area.

- In case the household regularly lives in 2 or more houses on the same lot, the area used for living is equal to the total area of these houses.

- In the case of a discrete house with many households residing together:

- In case the household regularly lives in 2 or more houses on the same lot, the area used for living is equal to the total area of these houses.

- In the case of a discrete house with many households residing together:

- If the representative household is identified, the livable area of the whole house

is calculated for the representative household.

- If the representative household cannot be identified, the livable area is calculated for each household. In which, the common areas are not included.

is calculated for the representative household.

- If the representative household cannot be identified, the livable area is calculated for each household. In which, the common areas are not included.

- In case the house/apartment has a total livable area of 1000 m2 or more, the DTV writes 999 m2.

For example: A 4-story house, the floor area of each floor is 40 m2 and is built from the 1st to the 4th floor; only on the 4th floor, only one room of 15 m2 is built as a worship room, and the rest is surrounded by sturdy wire mesh and used for washing and drying clothes. The total livable area of the house is:40 x 3 + 15 = 135 m2.
