Question 8

How long have you lived in this town?

When you read out the question you must say the name of the place you are interviewing in.

In urban areas - Say the name of the town.

Example 'How long have you lived in Lae Town'.

In RNVs - Give name of RNV.

Example. 'How long have you lived in Misima Elantation'
or 'How long have you lived in Higaturu Oil Palm settlement'
or 'How long have you lived in Mt. Diamond Mission'.

In rural village only - Give name of District.

Example 'How long have you lived in Mumeng District'.

If the person was born here in the place where you are interviewing write B/H.

"Here" in urban areas means - this town
"Here" in RNVs means - this RNV
"Here" in Rural Villages means - this District.

If the person has come from somewhere else write down the number of years that the person has been living in that town or village.

Absences: If the person has been away from the place where they have been living for a long period then only count from when they come back again.

If the person has been away for a short period. E.g. like going on leave or going back to the village for a few weeks then do not worry about these absences.

Example
Assume a person was living at a place for 5 years then went home for 3 years and has come back and been here for another 2 years. In this case we only write down the last period i.e. 2 years.

Only if the period is less than 1 year do we record months.
Otherwise leave the months space blank.
Always round the time the person lived here downwards. Thus a period of 1 year and 8 months becomes 1 year.
Persons in the place less than 1 month put 0 months. e.g. 1 weeks = 0 months.
