C. Population

Census home is a person or group of persons, related or not, who occupy the same dwelling. You will write down first the name and surname of the head of the household, then ask all the corresponding questions.


1. What is the relationship or relation with the head of the home?
Each private dwelling should necessarily have a head, who is the person recognized as such by the rest of the members of the household.

In the case of a group of non related persons someone should be recognized as head by the rest of the group. In the case of absence, the head of the household will not be enumerated in this household, another member should occupy their place (spouse, oldest child, sibling, etc.). The relationship of the rest of the members will be established with respect to the substitute.

[The instructions refer to a graphic of the census form.]

The spouse of the head will be enumerated second whether they are legally married or not.

In "other family member" register siblings, aunt/uncles, niece/nephews, cousins, brother/sister-in-laws of the head of the household.

Persons employed in domestic service will be enumerated as members of the census home when they coexist and sleep in the dwelling.

In "other non family member," consider other persons who coexist in the home for example pensioners, guests, etc.

[p. 9]

In collective households this question should not be asked. The enumerator will determine the order for enumerating, beginning with the one at the top of the hierarchy, but will not fill out any cell for question No. 1.

Question 1. What is your relationship to the head of household (male or female)?
Remember that you will begin by enumerating the Head of Household, using the first block of questions of Population. For the rest of the members of the household, you will note the relationship or family relationship of each one in the population blocks.


Family relationship with the head of household (male or female): relationship of each member of the household with the person who has been designated as head of household (male of female) of the same. This refers as much to the family relationships (consanguineous or not) as to the relationships of friendship, work, or other types. The categories are:

- Head of household (male or female): the person recognized as such by the rest of the members of the household.
- Spouse or partner: the partner of a legal union (marriage) and the partner in a de facto union (concubine) of the head of household (male or female).
- Son (daughter) / Stepson (stepdaughter): this includes biological and legally adopted sons and daughters or those de facto of the head of household or the children of the head of household and/or includes the sons and daughters of the partner even if they are not those of the head of household.
- Son/daughter-in-law: spouse or partner of the son/daughter or stepson/stepdaughter of the head of household.
- Grandchild: grandchildren of the head of household (male or female). This also includes the children of the stepchildren.
- Father / Mother / Father/mother-in-law: these relationships are also applicable to ties that are functionally equivalent, such as the step-father/mother with sons-in-law, grandchildren, etc., refered as much to the marriages as to de facto unions.
- Other relatives: persons with some other type of relationship to the head of household (for example uncles, etc.).
- Other non-relatives: persons who form part of the household and who have no family ties to the head of household (friends, etc) and who are not included in any of the above categories.
[81]
- Domestic servants and their families: person hired (legally or de facto) to carry out tasks related to the care and maintenance of the dwelling and/or the members of the household. The renumeration for his/her labor can be in money or goods. Include their relatives.

Question 7

Your kinship relation with the first registered person.

For filling the answer to this question the interviewer uses the prompts in column 7a.

The first registered person in the household 01 is written on the first line. For the other members of the household, the corresponding code of the prompts is written. If the replier is the son of the first person registered in the household, then "daughter, son" prompt code 03 should be written and so on, and if the replier has some other kinship relation with the first registered in the household (for example nephew) then "other relative" prompt code 10 should be written.

Separate cases for defining the kinship relations
Father-in-law (the father of the husband)
Mother-in-law (Mother of the husband)
Mother-in-law (Mother of the wife)
Father-in-law (Father of the wife)
Son-in-law (Husband of the sister or the daughter)
Daughter-in-law (Wife of the brother or the son)

Other kinship relations
Brother-in-law (Brother of the wife)
Brother-in-law (Brother of the husband)
Sister-in-law (Sister of the husband)
Sister-in-law (Sister of the wife)
Brother-in-law (Husband of the sister-in-law)


[p. 17]

"Roommate" prompt code is written for those people who permanently live, partly or fully, in the dormitories, nursing homes, boarding schools, in the monasteries (institutional population). The exception made for those people, who have kinship relations with each other (for example spouses can live in a dormitory, or brother and sister can live in a boarding school). For these people the interviewer fills in this question according to the kinship relation.

Column 7A

Your kinship relation with the first registered person of the household.

To fill in the answer for this question the interviewer uses the prompts in the 7a column.
For the first registered person in the household "01" is written on the first line. For the other members of the household the corresponding code of the prompts is written. For example, if the replier is the son of the first registered in the household, then it is necessary to write prompt code "03" corresponding to "daughter, son" and so on, and if the replier has some other kinship relation with the first registered in the household (for example, nephew) then it is written prompt code "11" of "other relative."

Specific cases for defining the kinship relations

For these people the interviewer fills in this question according to the kinship relation.

If the household comprises one person, then the corresponding prompt code "01" of "the first person registered in the household" is filled in.

In this column the kinship to the head of the household listed in the first space (e.g. wife, husband, life partner, daughter, son-in-law, grandchild, niece, etc.) should be indicated.

Because the census list is not processed by computer, the position in the household (kinship to the head of the household) should be copied to question 5 on the corresponding person questionnaire.

Enumerator guideline:
Please make sure that the information is copied to the corresponding person questionnaire.

Purpose of the question:
The position in household (kinship) forms the basis for the household and family statistics which are needed for the purpose of planning and assessment of administrative measures, like for example, for the projection of the housing supply or if additional places in kindergartens are needed in a region.

7. Position in household:
Explanation: In order to show the relationship of household members to families, please mark the relationship the person has to the "head of household." Usually, the person contributing the most to the household income is to be designated as the head of household. If income is more or less equal, it is up to the household to designate the person who is to be marked as head of household.

In households consisting solely of unrelated persons, it is irrelevant to family and household statistics who is marked as the head of household.

For children who were brought into the marriage or consensual union, "daughter/son" should be marked, [p. 76] even if the latter are blood children of the husband or wife only.

The term "head of household" is felt to be disagreeable by some persons. Because of that, other expressions were sought in preceding pilot surveys. The results were, however, not encouraging: the understanding of the question and the usefulness of the answers were insufficient. For question-technical reasons, it had to be reverted back to the archaic (but understood by all) term "head of household."
With this information the families living in a household are statistically delimited and their relation to the remaining household members is depicted. Data about the different family types (full families, single parent families, etc.) is important for the planning of family and socio-political measures, for example: level of the family subsidy, scaling of the child tax credit, fare reductions for families on public transportation.

Question 1. Relationship to person No 1 in the household

The code corresponding to the prompt from the list of possible responses is to be marked.

For the household member specified first within the household the prompt "person recorded first within household" is to be marked. All other household members are to get codes corresponding to prompts required (e.g., if a person questioned is a son of the first person, the code corresponding to the prompt "daughter, son" is to be marked. If a person questioned has kinship or in-law relationship to the reference (No. 1) person, which is different from those listed (e.g., nephew), the reply corresponding to the "other relation degree» is be marked.

If a household is a one-person household, a mark against the reply "person recorded first within household" is to be made.

Persons living in a given household, but being not related to any household member either by blood or by law (e.g., nanny or servant living in the household and contributing to it) are to be marked as "non-relative".

For persons usually living together, but making no common provisions for food or other essential for living and fully or partially supported by the government, public or religious organizations in institutions like boarding houses for the aged and invalids, children's homes, monasteries, etc. (the institutional population), except those related to each other by blood or law (e.g., husband and wife in a boarding house for the aged or invalids or brother and sister in a children's home, the reply "person recorded first within household" is to be marked.


For each household member (regardless of the age and marital status) living in the same household with both parents or one of them, the serial number of his (her) mother (related by blood or not) within the dwelling, i.e. the number indicated against her name in the list of residents in the dwelling (column 1), is to be recorded. If there is no mother in the household, the number of father is to be entered. If there is neither mother nor father within the household, no number is to be recorded.

Demographic Characteristics (for each household member)

Column (3): Family relations
Indicate, in this column, the relationship between each member of the household to the head of household. However, if establishing such relationship is difficult to do, define the relationship in relation to another most directly related family member.
Wives shall receive the letter 'E' following by the husband's order number on the form. For example, the head of household's wife shall receive the code E1, the wife of the man number 6 in the household shall receive the code E6.
For children, parents' order numbers are used. For example, a boy whose father is the head of household (order number 1) and whose mother has the order number 3 shall be registered as 'Son 1X3.' Thus, each child is designated by the number of the father and the mother.
However, a child whose father or mother is no longer part of the household shall receive Zero (0) to designate the absent parent.
[Examples are not presented here]
Note that the father's order number always comes before that of the mother when designating children.
For other household members, the census agent must specify the family relation or relations between them and the head of household or another household member. For example, the aunt of the head of household's wife with the number 6 shall be designated as "Aunt of 6".
In the case of servants, friends, and visitors, use such words following by the appropriate numbers. For example, the census agent shall write: friend of 1, Vis. (abbreviation of visitor) or Dom. (abbreviation of servant) of 1.

Chapter F. The person's main characteristics

Person number: In private dwellings, you should number the people consecutively starting with the head of household and ending with the last person present in the dwelling. In collective dwellings, the first position and the number 1 may be assigned to any member of the collective household. The same applies to people with no dwelling.

Person's name. In this space, write the person's given name. The last name is not needed. The person's name is there only to facilitate the data collection.

F1. For all people

23. Familial or other relationship

In private dwellings:
To collect information about the familial or other relationship within a private household, it is first necessary to identify the person who is the head of household and then the other members of the household. The head of household is the person recognized as such by the other household members, regardless of the person's sex, age, or income.
For technical reasons, each private household must have a head of household.
The question about familial or other relationship refers the relationship between each member of the household and the head of household. The answer should be noted down as follows:
Ask who is the head of household, note down code 1 (head of household) and begin the interview with this person. Then proceed likewise with each person present at the time of the census, following as closely as possible the order of the different familial and other relationships.

In collective dwellings and in the case of people with no dwelling:
In these cases, mark the relationship with code 11. Then interview the first person, then the second, and so on to the last person. In these cases, no head of household is identified and the people can therefore be counted in any order.

j. "09" for head's brother/sister
k. "10" for the head's nephew/niece

The respondent may indicate that someone is the head's spouse even if the man and woman are not legally married. They may be living together without having gone through any form of marriage ceremony, whether tribal, civil, religious or other. Nevertheless, if the respondent indicates that someone is the spouse/partner of the head of household, you should enter code 01, even if later you are told in column A19 that the two individuals are "living together". A person may effectively be the spouse, in terms of the role that person plays in the household, even if legally that person is not married to the head of the household.

Ask the head of the household or the person who answers your questions to give you the names of all present and absent residents (for less than six months) of the household. Classify them under column P2 in the following order:
- Head of household,
- Unmarried children of the head of the household whose mother does not live in the household

All these persons who are related or not to the head of the household will be followed if necessary by their spouse (s) and children if the latter are members of the household

Canada 1981 — source variable CA1981A_0406 — Relationship to the head of household
Questionnaire form view entire document:  text  image

Question 2. To enable us to identify family groups within the household, it is necessary to select a reference person (Person l), and to state the relationship of each household member to that person. For example, if John Smith lives with his father Thomas Smith, and Thomas Smith has been entered as Person 1, John Smith would mark "Son or daughter of Person 1". There may be a member or members of your household whose relationship to Person 1 is not described in Question 2. In such cases, mark either "Other relative of Person 1" or "Other non-relative", and also print the exact relationship to Person 1 in the space provided.
"Other relative" includes persons such as uncles, aunts, cousins, grandfathers, grandmothers, and so on. "Other non-relative" refers to household members who are not related to Person 1 by blood, marriage, adoption or common-law. Some examples are employee's wife, employee's daughter, room-mate's son, landlord, and so on.
The term "common-law", as used in "Common-law partner of Person l" or as may be used to describe any other such partnership in the household (for example, "Lodger's common-law partner"), should be interpreted as applying to any case of a couple living together in this type of union.

Note that stepchildren, adopted children, and children of a common-law partner should be considered as sons and daughters. Foster children, wards and guardianship children who are not related to Person l by blood, marriage, adoption or common-law should be listed as lodgers.

Question 2: Relationship to person 1
The relationships between household members tell us how many family, non-family and one-person households there are in Canada. This information is used to plan social programs such as old age security and family allowances. It also identifies future needs for housing and community services ranging from health and education to recreation and transportation.
Start with person 2. When you find person 2's relationship to person 1, mark the appropriate circle. For example, if John Smith lives with his father Thomas Smith and the father has been listed as person 1, then John Smith would mark the circle labelled Son/daughter of Person 1.
There may be someone in this household whose relationship to person 1 is not described in Question 2. In such cases, print the exact relationship to person 1 in the box provided. Other can include persons in this household who are either related (uncle, aunt, cousin, grandfather, grandmother, etc.) or who are not related (employee, landlord, employee's common-law partner, etc.) to person 1.
Stepchildren, adopted children and children of a common-law partner should be considered sons and daughters.
Foster children, wards and guardianship children who are not related to person 1 by blood, marriage, adoption or common-law should be listed as lodgers.


Common-law refers to two people who live together as husband and wife but who are not legally married to each other.

1. What is your relationship to the Head of Household?

Each private household must necessarily have a head, who is the person recognized as such by the other members of the household.

In the case of a group of unrelated people, who lodge and eat together, someone should be recognized by the group as the head.

In a case where, because of absence, the head is not to be enumerated in that household, another member should take their place (wife, oldest son, brother, etc.). The family relationships of the other members will be established with respect to the replacement.

The head's spouse should be enumerated second whether or not she is legally married.

Under Other Relative, record: brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins, brothers- and sisters-in-law of the head of household.

Considered Non-Relatives are: other people who live in the household. For example: close friends, boarders (up to 5) and domestic service people when they live and sleep in the household.

[p. 17]

If the Household that you are enumerating is Collective, don't ask this question, since there is no family relationship between the people in that household. Fill in the oval for the Collective option right away.

[The above directions refer to a picture of question 1 in this section of the enumeration form.]

2. Relationship to the head of household: Draw a circle on the code before "head of household" for the first person recorded in the family. Other members are identified according to their respective relationship to the head of household. When the respondent is not the head of household, remember not to make such a mistake as recording the relationship from the standpoint of the respondent. That is, if the respondent is the son of the head of household, be sure not to circle "parent" to identify the relationship of the spouse of the head of household from the standpoint of the respondent instead of from the head of household.

In the answer categories under this topic, "child" includes son-in-law/ daughter-in-law. "Grandchild" includes grandson-in-law/granddaughter-in-law, great-grandson/great-granddaughter and great-grandson-in-law/ great-granddaughter-in-law. "Parent" includes father-in-law/mother-in-law. "Grandparent" includes grandparent and great-grandparent-in-law. Circle "7" for brother, sister, aunt, cousin and other relatives. Circle "8" for housekeeper, colleague, schoolmate and other non-relatives. The relationship to each other in a collective household is to be circled as non-relatives.

When the head of household has been away for more than one year, another person should be appointed by this family to replace him/her, and recorded at the number one person's place. The relationship of other members to the new head of household should be identified accordingly. For the convenience of circling, the order of categories and their codes under this topic are not arranged by the seniority in family, but in the light of the structure of most families (generally, it is formed by the head of household, his/her spouse and their children, there are not many cases in which three/four generations live together). Explanation should be given if somebody misunderstands it as disrespect to elders.

Relationship with the head of the household

Column No. 3 - What is your relationship with the head of the family? A person who supplies information should respond to this question in the following manner:

Before the name of the head of family the word "head" will be written down and, next, according to the case, the corresponding familial relationship, like: spouse, child, etc. Persons who without having familial relationships with the Head make part of the family unit, should be registered with the names that correspond to them, such as: guests, tenants or servants. If children of servants are older than 14 years they should be registered as servants and if they have not reached this age, as "children of servant".

For cases of non-family groups the head will be written down in the first place, according to the hierarchy and immediately the rest of the persons specifying if it concerns a prisoner, soldier, guard, elderly person, student, religious person, passenger, etc. A person who does not share meals with the census family should be registered as Head for being by themselves a census family of one person and in the contrary case they will be registered as a tenant. In family residences where bakeries and other domestic industries are run, whose workers live together with the family of the owners, persons of the census family, should be registered first pointing out their corresponding relationship and afterwards workers of the industry, with the name "lodger".

Household
(Definition adopted by the Andean Community of Nations (CAN)).

It is a person or group of people, related or not, who occupy all or part of a dwelling; attend to basic needs charged to a common budget and they generally share food.

The following situations should be taken into account:
[p. 53]

Pensioners: are people who pay for the right of a dwelling and food, therefore, are considered members of the household to which they pay for these rights.

Tenants: are people to whom one or more rooms of a dwelling are rented and prepare food or eat separately, therefore they are considered separate households.

Domestic employees who sleep most of the time in the dwelling where they work, are considered members of the household for which they work.

People who reside (sleep) in a dwelling sharing the expenses of rent and services but do not share food are considered a household. For example: a group of students who pay the rent and services among themselves, but each one eats separately.

When there are many groups of people who cook and separately and attend to other basic needs charged to different budgets in a dwelling, each group is considered a household. Example: married children who live with their spouse and children in the house of the parents, but cook separately, are considered a household different than the parents.

Note: The concept of household should not be confused with the concept of Family. The Household is formed by those who live in a dwelling and share at least some meals, whether related or not; while the concept of "family" implies ties of kinship between its members and can constitute, for effects of the Census, "many households" if some of them live in other dwellings or are living in the same unit but cooking separately. This is important, given that in two contiguous dwellings parents can live in one and married children in the other (the interviewer can tend to consider it a single household).

Head of household
It is the habitual resident recognized as such by the rest of the members of the household.

It is, generally the father or mother or the principle economic support of the household. A household always has one and only one head of household and cases in which a spouse exists should still be single.

First block of questions: for all persons


Question 1: Relationship to the head

[Below the text is a form]

This question considers the relation or tie that exists between each one of the members of the household (or non family group) with the respective head.

The head is the person considered as such by the rest of the members of the household, who is generally the one who supports the largest part of the economic resources of the household and has the most responsibility in making of decisions there. In non family groups whose members do not have any family relationship, the head will be the person who has the most authority, who carries out the administration, the one who has lived there the longest or the oldest.

If a person lives alone, that person is the head.

Before enumerating the head in the first two columns (first population form) find out who is the person considered as such. You should not accept as head a person who is not a resident in the household, even if they are the economic support of it and are being enumerated with the members of this household. Also do not write down as heads, persons under 15 years of age. Once the head has been identified, the resident members will be written down in the following forms (following columns), ordering them according to the family relation that each one of them has with the head of the household.

[p. 46]

The relation order is the same that appears in question 1 of the formula, that is spouse or companion, son or daughter, son/daughter-in-law, grandchildren, parents or in-laws, other family members, domestic service and their family members, other non family members.

In all the cases only a circle marked with an X should appear.

First block

For all persons


Question 1: Relation or Relationship to the Head of the Home

This question considers the relation or kin tie that exists between each one of the members of the home with respect to a person or reference member who for census purposes is the head of the home, and as such is able to form family groups.

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

The head [gender emphasized] is the person considered as such by the rest of the members of the home or who contributes the largest part of the economic resources of the home, or in the last instance, is the oldest.

In non family groups the head can be one who has the most authority, the oldest person, the person who has resided in the dwelling the longest or the one who administers the place.

For all cases, the head should be a usual resident older than 15 years.

Although you should write down the relation or relationship declaredby the enumerated person, when doing it consider that:

a. For the case of domestic service and their family members you should keep in mind the concept of usual residence, as in the instructions previously given for its application.

b. In collective homes persons will be considered as non family groups, therefore, once a person is identified as head ["la jefa o el jefe"] of this collective home, the rest of the residents will be classified as "Others not family", even though they have some relation or relationship with this head.

Questions 1 to 14 should be asked of all people of the household.

Question 1: Relationship to the head of the household

For all persons

1. What relationship does he/she have with (person No. 01)?

[] 1 Head of household
[] 2 Spouse or partner
[] 3 Child or stepchild
[] 4 Son or daughter in law
[] 5 Grandchild or great grandchild
[] 6 Sibling
[] 7 Brother or sister in law
[] 8 Father or mother
[] 9 Father or mother in law
[] 10 Other relative
[] 11 Domestic help and their family
[] 12 Other non-relative

Note the "kinship relationship" that each person of the household has with respect to the person 01, who will always be the head of the household or the person of reference.

Head of the household: This is the person considered as such by the rest of the people of the household, or the one that contributes the greatest amount of economic resources to the household, or as a last resort, the oldest.

[p. 139]

Remember that only Person No. 01 must be registered with the category head (code 1). In the non-family groups, the head can be the one that has the most authority, the oldest, the one who has resided most years in the dwelling, or the one who administers to place. For all cases, the head must be a habitual resident older than fifteen years of age.

In the case of the collective households there are no heads of the household nor will the family relations that could exist among the habitual residents be recorded, so that you must include all the people of that collective household in the category called "other non-family" code 12.

In the case of the same sex couples, you must proceed in the same way, always respecting that which was indicated by the informer.

[There is a picture of question 1 from this section of the enumeration form.]

If the person being interviewed is the male or female head of household, use the first questionnaire, intended only for the male or female head of household, and mark box (0).

If it is a private dwelling, beginning with the second questionnaire, read word for word each one of the response alternatives and mark with an x the appropriate box: the alternatives go from box 1 (spouse or partner in a consensual union) to box 8 (domestic employee) depending on the kinship relationship that may exist with the male or female head of household.

[p. 37]

Mark the following under other relatives: brothers, cousins, nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles, grandparents, brothers- and sisters-in-law, stepchildren; in other words, those who have some degree of family relationship or that the male or female head of household considers as such.

Mark under other non-relatives those who don't have any kinship relationship to the male or female head of household, such as for example: friends, godparents, godchildren, etc.

If the dwelling is collective, begin with page 5 and mark box 9 (member of a collective household). Remember that in these dwellings there is no male or female head of household, and therefore there in no kinship relationship.

Keep in mind that this information is in chapter V. Identification of the people in the household; you have to transcribe the previously recorded data from columns 1 and 2 (number of the person and first and last names).

4.3 Composition of the family or families that live in the household

4.3.1 Residents of the household
Who usually resides in this household?

In this box all the names of those who usually reside in this household will be marked and their information will be registered, whether they are female, male, infants, elderly, adolescents, etc. The people may all be related to each other, only some related to each other, or not related at all to each other. Next, the rules are presented that should be used to decide who

[pg. 34]

should be enumerated in the household visited, that is, which person will be considered as a resident of the household:
a) Those who list this household as their only place to sleep and where they generally eat their meals.
Those mentioned in the previous paragraph could be temporarily absent for the following reasoning: business trip, tourism, vacations or fulfilling their work obligations, as well as including people who are hospitalized for fewer than six months and whoever is in prison without having been sentenced. Those hospitalized for six months or more and those who are jailed and have been sentenced will be enumerated in the corresponding collective housing.

b) People who are married or have partners who occupy the household with their family, even though they spend the majority of the time in another place as a boarder, will be enumerated in the household of their family unit; consequently this person will not be enumerated where they are boarding.

c) Single people who occupy the household as a boarder, even though they have their family group in another place which they visit periodically, will be enumerated where they live as a boarder; consequently these people will not be enumerated in the household of their family members.


[pg. 35]

d) The boy or girl who was born before midnight of the beginning of the census will be enumerated; but those that were born after the mentioned day and time will not be enumerated.

e) The people who died after midnight the day that the census begins will be enumerated; but those who died before the mentioned day and time will not be enumerated.

f) The domestic employee (male or female) who sleeps the majority of the time in the household.

g) The people who during the census are living in the household and don't have another place of residence.


Notes:
  • People who are absent from the household lending their services as soldiers in the armed forces will be enumerated in the military barracks.
  • Beggars, regular alcoholics, street "urchins" and others who don't have a fixed place of residence and who sleep in doorways, parks, streets, under bridges, etc., should be interviewed on the second to last day of the census in the place where they usually sleep, as the enumeration of these people should be done at night. This group makes up the homeless population.

Column 18 - Gender

After entering the gender of each individual registered in Column 115, the corresponding columns are entered in card column 34. For example if the gender of the member is male, then the term "male is entered in line with his name and code "1" is entered in card column 35.Also if the member's gender is female, "female" is written in line with her name and code "2" is entered in card column 34. Since names of some people are used for both genders, gender of members should not be determined simply by referring to their names. In some areas males are called by female names and females by male names. Hence strict caution must be exercised in filling member's gender.

Section 3: Particulars of household members

Before collecting information about household members, the definition of head of household and usual household member should be well appreciated. Therefore, the concept of household given in section 2 of chapter two should be appropriately understood.

A. Usual member of a household
A person is said to be a usual member of the household if he/she lives at least six months of the year continuously with the household. In addition, a person is considered to be a usual member of the household if he/she has the intention to live with the household forever even though he/she lived with the household less than six months. Persons who left their household temporarily for less than six months are considered as usual member of their households. However, persons are not considered as usual members of the household if they left their households for six months or more, or who left their households for less than six months but have the intention to leave for more than six months.

The following members of the household are considered usual household members:

a. All persons who lived with the household for at least six month during the census year.
b. All persons who have the intention to stay with the household for six months or more even though they stayed with the household for less than six months. For example, if a woman married a man and went to live in her husband's home during the census year, she is considered as a usual member of her husband's household even if she has lived in her husband's home for less than six months. Similarly, if a person got a job and went to live with another household forever, he is considered as the usual member of this new household where he is found during the census even if he has been living with this new household for less than six months.
c. House maids who usually stay the nights with the household and who do not have another residence.
d. Persons who left the household temporarily for less than six months. For example, persons who are on annual leave, persons who went to another place for holiday, inpatient persons, persons who went to visit relatives and persons who went to other places for business.
e. All persons who do not have permanent residence and who live with the household during the census. For example, if individuals do not have permanent residence but they live in various houses, they are considered to be usual member of the house hold where they are found on the enumeration day.
f. Students. Students who left their households, relatives or usual place of residence to attend school in regular schools, colleges, universities, etc. should be counted in the place where they are attending school. During the enumeration, if the students went back to their households or relatives due to a school break, they should be enumerated as usual members of their households. Students who are attending school by hiring service houses or who live with relatives away from their usual households, they should be enumerated in the area where they actually live during the census even though they commute weekly or monthly to bring their ration or to visit their households. However, students who commute daily to attend school are considered usual members of their households.
Orphanages, boarding school students, inmates of correctional facilities and other collective quarters
An inmate of an orphanage, boarding school (including universities and colleges which have lodging facilities), correctional facility or other collective quarters (e.g. homes for the elderly, monasteries, etc.) should be enumerated as a member of the collective quarters during the census. However, persons who are temporarily detained in a police station or in another temporary prison facility should be counted as usual members of their households regardless of the length of stay in these places.

B. Visitors
A visitor is any relative or non-relative person who is not a usual member of the household but spent the census night in the household.

C. Head of household
A head of household is a person who is a usual member (male or female) in the household acknowledged as head by the other members. If a man has two or more wives who live in separate households, he will be enumerated as head of the household with his oldest living wife (first married) if he is recognized as head. Other wives will be enumerated with their households as head or member of the households.

Column 13: Serial number of members of the household and visitors
The questionnaire has space to list up to ten members of a household. If the number of the members of the household is greater than ten, it is necessary to use an additional questionnaire. In this situation, the serial numbers given in column 13 (01-10) are corrected as 11, 12, 13, etc. until all members and visitors are listed.

Column 16: Relationship to head of the household
The head of the household should always be listed in the first line of column 14. For column 16, since the person listed in the first line is the head of the household write "head" in the space provided and enter code 0 in the given card column. Then, by asking the respondent, write the relationship of each member of the household to the head the code of the relationship in the appropriate space.

For example, if the wife is listed next to the head write "wife" and enter code 2 (the spouse code) in space provided. If the head has more than one wife (if they are the members of the household), write the relationship as "first wife", "second wife", etc. in this column. For children, write their father and/or mother's serial number (column 13) when you write the relationship to the head of the head since different codes are assigned according to their relationship. For example, son/daughter of 10 and 02, or son/daughter of 01 only, son/daughter of 02 only, etc.

The relationship of the usual members of the household should be correctly identified and the appropriate relationship should be written for each member of the household and the correct code should be entered in given card column. The relationship codes are given below.

0 = Head
1 = Spouse (wife/husband)
2 = Son/daughter of the head and/or spouse
3 = Son/daughter of head
4 = Son/daughter of spouse
5 = Mother or father of head/spouse
6 = Sister or brother of head/spouse
7 = Other relative (adopted child, godchild, etc.)
8 = Non-relative

Inmates of hotels/hostels, inmates of other collective quarters, and homeless persons should be given code 8.

C. Head of household

A head of household is a person who is usual member (male or female) in the household acknowledged as head by the other members. If a man has two or more wives who live in separate households, he will be enumerated as head of the household with his old alive wife (first married) if he is recognized as head. Other wives will be enumerated with their households as head or member of the households.

Question 4:- What is the relationship of [the respondent] to the head of the household?

Always the head of the household should be listed in the first line in question 2. For question 4, the person listed in the first line is the head of the household and code 1 that is the head of the household code should be shaded. Then by asking the respondent the code of the relationship of each member of the household to the head should be shaded by selection the appropriate code from the choices of the codes given under this question.

For example:- If the wife is listed next to the head of the household code 2, the code given in front of the spouse, should be shaded. If the head has more than one wife, code 2 should be shaded for all his wives. Concerning the children, code 3, the code given for the child of the head and/or spouse i.e. a child of both the head and the spouse, the child of the head only or the child of the spouse only should be shaded.

The relationship of the usual members of the household should be correctly identified and the appropriate code of the relationship for each member of the household should be selected from the codes given under this question. The choices of the relationship codes listed under this question are given below.

-Head
-Spouse (wife/husband)
-Son/daughter of the head and/or spouse
-Mother or father of head/spouse
-Sister or brother of head./spouse
-Nephew or niece
-Grandchild of head/spouse
-Other relative (adopted child, godchild... etc)
-Non - relatives

The codes of all inmates of hotel/hostel, inmates of other collective quarters and homeless persons should be code 9.

31. Column 2: Relationship to Head of Household, such as Head, Wife, Son, Daughter, Adopted Son, Son-in-Law, Daughter-in-Law, ____, Visitor, Boarder, Servant: Against the person who is Head of the Household "Head" should be written, and against the other people in the house, their relationship to the head, such as wife, son, etc. should be written. These relationships should be described accurately, and careful distinction should be made between children by blood, step-children and adopted children. Where a man and woman live together, although unmarried, they should be regarded as man and wife. If someone in a household is not related to the head, he should be shown as a visitor, or servant, or whatever his position in the house is. If a visitor or similar person with no family relationship to the head is enumerated on line 6, and has with him a son, for example, who is also unrelated to the head, the son should be described as "Visitor, son of No. 6".
32. Where several persons with no family relationship share the responsibility of a household, one should be selected as head and the other described as "Partners". In an institution such as a hospital or a prison, where there is no head of the household and, therefore, no relationship to the head, the inmates should be described in this column as "Patients" or "Prisoners".
33. If there is only one family group of parents and children in a household, then the order in which this should be recorded is -- Father (Head), Mother (Wife), and then the children starting with the oldest and working down to the youngest. If there is a household in which, for example, the eldest son is married and is living with his wife and their children in the same house as his parents, then the order should be Head, Wife, Son, Daughter-in-Law, Grandchildren (i.e. those who are the children of the eldest son and his wife), and then the remaining children of the head and his wife listed in descending order according to their age if they are also living in the house. Persons who are not related to the head of the household (Visitors), or those who are more distantly related to him (e.g. aunts, the head's parents etc.) should be recorded last.

[6] Families
Families are formed at the turn of the year from persons living in the same dwelling according to the population information system of the Population Register Centre.

Child
In the family statistics children comprise the following persons living with their parents:

-- biological children,
-- adopted children,
-- biological children and adopted children of one of the spouses.

Foster children and children in the care of the family are not classified as children.
The definition of child has changed since 1990. A child is now defined as a person who lives with his or her parents irrespective of his or her marital status, unless the person has a spouse or children who live in the same household-dwelling unit. In 1990 only unmarried persons were counted as children. So while in 1990 widowed or divorced persons living with their parents were classified as not belonging to families, since 1992 they have been regarded as members of the family.

Cohabiting couple
A cohabiting couple is defined as two spouseless adults of different sex aged 18 and over and occupying the same dwelling on a permanent basis, provided their age difference is less than 16 years and they are not siblings. In case the couple has a common child these specifications do not apply. Same-sex persons living together are not inferred as cohabiting couples. Only registered partnerships are recorded in the statistics.

4. Relationship ____

What is your relationship to the head of the household?
Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

10a. Who is the head of the household?

The head of a household is generally the person who is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the household. He or she is not necessarily the oldest person in the household. However, your main guide as to who is the head is whoever will be pointed out to you as the head when you ask.

pg. 43

If the head of the household was away on census night, you should ask for the person who took charge of the household when the usual head was away. This person thus becomes the "temporary head of household" and all other relationships should refer to this person and not to the usual head who was absent.

Enter the name of this person on the first line of List A and write in the relationship column temporary head and relate all other relationships to this person. For instance, if a usual head of household was away and the wife becomes the temporary head, all the relationships should refer to this wife. Thus the head (who will be recorded on the first line in List C) becomes the "husband" and his sister's son becomes "husband's sister's son" and not "sisters' Son".

10b. How to fill out the "relationship to head of household" column

What we want in the relationship column is the relationship of every member of the household, including guests and visitors to the head or temporary head of household. Most relationships are established either by blood (descent) or by marriage (affinal). This means that your brother and sister's son are your blood relatives whilst your wife, wife's mother or wife's sister are your relatives by marriage.

The relationship should always be written as if it were defined by the head himself. For example, if the head replies in the following manner:

(a) A is my son-write son
(b) B is my brother-write brother
(c) C is my wife-write wife
(d) Dis my father-write father

On the other hand, if you ask a member of the household about his or her relationship to the head of the household you have to invert the relationship before you enter it. If, for example, a person tells you that:

(a) The head is my father-you will write son or daughter (whichever is the correct one)
(b) The head is my mother's brother-you will write sister's daughter.
(c) The head is my son-you will write father or mother.

Always remember to avoid such vague terms as nephew, cousin, uncle, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, mother-in-law, etc. which do not denote exact relationships. Nephew may mean brother's son or sister's son and these should, therefore, be distinguished.

pg. 44

Make sure that the blood relationships specified are true biological relationships. A son must mean the head's own true son and not his brother's, etc. However, half-brothers, i.e. persons having one mother but different fathers, or one father but different mothers should be recorded as brothers. Similarly half-sisters should be recorded as sisters.

Any other relationships should be fully specified, e.g. adopted son, adopted daughter, etc. Other household members who are not related to the head of the household such as lodgers and unrelated servants should be recorded as such, e.g. servant, guest, friend, etc.

As a guide to the, type of relationships to be specified a list has been compiled for you at the bottom of the front page of the household questionnaire (Form H).

Note that the relationship column should be left blank for all persons in institutions and the floating population.

How to fill out the "relationship to head of household" column:- What is required in the relationship column is the relationship of every member of the household, including guests and visitors, to the head or temporary head of household. Most relationships are established either by blood (descent) or by marriage (affinal). This means that your brother and sister's son are your blood relatives whilst your wife, wife's mother, or wife's sister are your relatives by marriage.

You must refer to the list of relationships to be used in question P01. The relationship must always be written as if it were defined by the head himself/herself. For example, if the head replies in the following manner:

[p. 33]

a. A is my son - write son
b. B is my brother - write brother
c. C is my wife - write wife
d. D is my father - write father


On the other hand, if you ask a member of the household about his or her relationship to the head of the household you have to invert the relationship before you enter it. If, for example, a person tells you that:

a. The head is my father - you will write son or daughter (whichever is applicable)
b. The head is my mother's brother - you will write other relative
c. The head is my son - you will write father or mother.


Always remember to avoid such vague terms as nephew, cousin, uncle, etc., which do not denote exact relationships. Nephew may mean brother's son or sister's son and these must be coded as "other relative".

Make sure that the blood relationships specified are true biological relationships. A son must mean the head's own true son and not his brother's son, etc. Half-brothers, e.g. persons having one mother but different fathers, or one father but different mothers must be recorded as brothers. Similarly, half-sisters must be recorded as sisters. (adopted son/daughter must be classified as son/daughter).

Any other relationships must be clearly stated e.g. parent/parent-in-law, grandchild, etc. Other household members who are not related to the head of the household such as lodgers, guest, friend, etc, must be classified as non-relatives. Paid unrelated househelp(s) must also be classified as non-relative(s).


P01 Relationship: What is the relationship of (name) to the head of household?

You have already entered this on the listing page (A13) of the questionnaire. Write the appropriate code in the cross check header code and mark an X in the box corresponding exactly to what you have recorded. Mark X against code 0 for group/outdoor sleeper (institutional and floating population). Where there are households within the floating population (homeless household), code the appropriate relationship and not 0.

3. Relationship to head of household - What is required in the relationship column is the relationship of each member of the household, including guests and visitors, to the head of household. Most relationships are established either by blood (descent) or by marriage (affine). This means that your brother and sister's son are your blood relatives whilst your wife, wife's mother, and wife's sister are your relatives by marriage.

You must refer to the list of relationships below the household roster (A16a). The relationship must always be written as if it were defined by the head himself/herself. For example, if the head replies in the following manner:

a. A is my son - write son
b. B is my brother - write brother
c. C is my wife - write wife
d. D is my father - write father

On the other hand, if you ask a member of the household about his or her relationship to the head of the household, you have to invert the relationship before you enter it. If, for example, a person tells you that:

a. The head is my father - you will write son or daughter (whichever is applicable)
b. The head is my mother's brother - you will write other relative
c. The head is my son - you will write father or mother.

Always remember to avoid such vague terms as nephew, cousin, uncle, etc., which do not denote exact relationships. Nephew may mean brother's son or sister's son.

Make sure that the blood relationships specified are true biological relationships. A son must mean the head's own true son and not his brother's son, etc. Half-brothers, e.g. persons having one mother but different fathers, or one father but different mothers must be recorded as brothers. Similarly, half-sisters must be recorded as sisters. [Adopted son/daughter must be classified as son/daughter].

Any other relationships must be clearly stated e.g. parent/parent-in-law, grandchild, etc. Other household members, who are not related to the head of the household such as lodgers, guest, friend, etc., must be classified as non-relatives. Paid unrelated house help(s) must also be classified as non-relative(s).

Write the appropriate code in the boxes corresponding to the line number of the individual respondent. Note that the 'other relative' response category includes nephew (a son of your brother/sister), niece (a daughter of your brother/sister), cousin (a child of your uncle or aunt), brother/sister-in-law (brother/sister of your husband or wife), etc.

For all non-household population (group quarters), the code for relationship is 12. You should therefore write "group quarters" in the relationship column and record 12 in the corresponding boxes for all non-household population.

Note however, that where there are households within the floating population (homeless household), code the appropriate relationship and not 12.

Question 2: Relationship to the head of household

This box is used for noting the relationship that exists between each of the enumerated and the person who has been identified as the head of the census household. In this question, there should be answers such as wife, partner, son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter, father-in-law or mother-in-law, father, nephew or niece, guest, boarder, servant, servant' daughter, boarder' son, etc.

[p. 38]

In the case of the collective dwellings, (hospitals, pensions, boarding schools, barracks, etc.) there will have to be annotations that describe the situation of the residents within the institution with accuracy, such as patient, pensioner, guest, boarder, prisoner, etc.

If two or more persons not related to each other by family ties share a dwelling, one of them should be taken as the "head" and the other(s) as co-habitants(s).

If the person that is enumerated is the spouse, partner, daughter, or son of the head of the census household, you should carefully mark the corresponding small box with an X (2, 3, or 4, according to the case). When the tie or relationship is not any of these, use the space "other", specifying the relationship with totally clarity, in this way: uncle, mother-in-law, son-in-law, grandson, brother, servant' son, etc.

In the case of non-family groups, you should note in the space "other" the word that best describes the position of each person within the group: doorman, prisoner, patient.

Any doubt that comes up in regards to the relationship to the head of household should be noted in "observations."

Column P03: Family Relationship to Head of Household
In each ordinary household, the head of household is the reference person, the one who is the basis for the relationship of persons, either related or not, who live under the same roof or in the same compound, take their meals together and accept or recognize his/her authority. In the category "family relationship to head of household," specify the nature of the family relationship (blood ties, in-laws or marriage, adoption) or the absence of family relationship between each family member and the head of household. Obviously, the simplest case is the one where the household consists of a single person, who is the de facto head of household.

The variable called "Family relationship to head of household" is a pre-coded one for which there are 9 modalities. Thus your task is simplified insofar as family relationships are very specific and should not pose any major difficulties in understanding or interpreting them. Once the head of household has been identified, there are 8 ways to describe the family relationship between a member of the household and the head of household. If there is no family relationship with the head of household (by either blood or marriage), you would then give code 9, which means without family relationship (9=SLP, no family relationship); this person could be a friend, a colleague, someone you are helping out or a mere acquaintance that you are lodging, an apprentice, etc. In every other case, it will be a person who has a family relationship of some sort with the head of household, but you do not have the liberty to write down any response exactly as it is given, because you only have 7 possibilities available to you to indicate the nature of the relationship:
a) EP--2 Code "2" corresponds to a marriage relationship between the head of household and his or her spouse. All wives of the head of household have the code "Ep-2" in column P03: Relationship to Head of Household. If the head of household is a married woman and her husband lives in the household, he will have the code EP-2.
b)"Fl--3". Code "3" is reserved for children of the head of household, i.e., the sons and daughters of the head of household. Please note: Your brother's children or your sister's children are not your children -- they are your nephews or your nieces. Neither is an adopted child your son or your daughter. These cases should not be coded "FL-3."
c) "P/M--4" Code "4" is strictly reserved for the father and mother of the head of household. A maximum of 2 people can be assigned code "4" in a given household.
d) "F/S--5" Code "5" is reserved for brothers and sisters of the head of household; it is for persons born of the same father and/or mother as the head of household. Please note: Do not confuse brother/sister with first cousin, which is the child of your uncle or your aunt.
e) "Ne--6" Code "6" is reserved for nephews and nieces of the head of household, that is, the children of the brother, sister, or first cousin of the head of household. The head of household is their uncle or their aunt.
f) "PF--7" "PF" indicates a grandson or grand-daughter. Code "7" is thus reserved for the grandsons and granddaughters of the head of household, that is, the children of the sons or daughter of the head of household. The head of household is their grandfather or grandmother.
g) "AP--8" Code "8" groups all the other family relationships with the head of household that haven't yet been identified. They are without doubt numerous and it is impossible to list them all. For example, all family relationships by adoption and by marriage (with the exception of the relationship that joins 2 spouses) fall in the "AP-8" class. Examples are: adopted child, parents-in-law, etc. In this same category you should also put uncles, cousins, aunts, etc.

[p. 36]

To record the answer in the questionnaire based on the elements indicated above, simply circle the code number that corresponds to the information you receive. In the case of a collective household, there is not a [head of] household. In this case, the National Census Bureau has decided that you should apply code "9," "without family relationship," (sans lien de parenté) to all members of collective households. So, you should circle code "9," "SLP," for all collective households.

5. Household status
The enumerator at first should select the head of household and afterwards the (family and other household) relation against the head of household of the other household members will be defined. After completing this procedure -- irrespective of the presence/absence of the given person the corresponding answer should be marked.

[p.15]

Head of household

In defining the head of household, the principles on page 24 should be taken into account.

Spouse

Wife is the female living in legal marriage with the head of household.

Consensual partner

Cohabiting (consensual) partner is the female living with the head of household without a legal marriage.

Child

In case the head of household is the parent of a definite person irrespective of his age and marital status should be enumerated as "child". In case. Adopted or bred children will be enumerated as "children" too.

Grandchild, etc.

While defining the family status attention should be given to the relation of the particularly person to the head of household. That is the answer "grandchild" can be underlined only if the head of household is the grandfather of the person, while a person will be marked as grandfather only if the head of household is his grandchild., etc.

Other relatives

If the printed answers do not describe the relation between the given person and the head of household (e.g. cousin, brother/sister of the spouse, aunt, etc.), the respective denotation should be written on the dotted line.

Lone person

If a person does not live with anybody else, the answer "lone person" will be marked. In case lone persons (e.g. friends) other than relatives form a household one of the persons will be marked as head of household.

Other non-relatives

If there are living in the household persons other than relatives, the term expressing their position (e.g. maid, student in board, child in state care, person supported for a material compensation, etc.) should be written on the dotted line.

1. Data on the persons living in the dwelling

The on the first page of the dwelling questionnaire will be filled in with the help of the respondent. The persons living in the dwelling will be grouped by households, within the households by families. By listing the family members the sequence should follow the family ties, or rather the family status. The printed versions at the table will help the classification of the family members. The persons belonging to the same family will be allotted by the same family number while those belonging to the same household will be marked with the same household number.

A common household is a group of persons living together in a common housing unit or in a part of it, bearing together, at least partly, the costs of living (i.e. daily expenses, meals). Subtenants, night-lodgers and co-tenants should be marked always with individual household numbers.

Consequently before starting the enumeration it has to be defined the number of households, families living in the dwelling, than the families and the households should be "set up". The next step is the fixing of the family status.

Family is formed from the following persons living in a common household:

-- Married couple with or without child(ren);

-- Persons living in consensual union with or without child(ren);
[p. 6]
-- Mother or father living with child(ren) (unless the spouse or cohabiting partner does not live in the same dwelling, while

The following persons do not live in a family:

-- The related or non-related persons (other than listed above), e.g. two siblings, three friends, etc.;

-- Lone persons.
Fixing the family status (heading "d")

One of the printed answers will be underlined:

-- "Husband (1)" or "wife(2)" in case of legally married male and female;

-- "Consensual partner (3)" in case of males and females living in consensual partnership without legal marriage;

-- "Mother or father living with at least one child (4)" in case one of the parents lives with the children);

-- "Child (5)" in case of a child (own or foster) of the previously mentioned persons irrespective of the age of the person;

-- "Ascending relative (6)" in case of parent, grand-parent, brother-in-law, father-in-law of a "husband", "wife", "consensual partner" or "lone parent with children" in case the ascending relative lives in the family without his/her spouse;

-- "Other relative (7)" in case of any non-ascending relative not forming an independent family (e.g. aunt, sibling, grandchild);

-- "Non-relative (8)" in case of a persons other than blood-related (e.g. child in state care).

In case the household consist of one person the answer is "lone person "9") while in case of several -- related and non-related -- persons not forming a family the answer is either

-- "Other relative (7)" or
-- "Non-relative (8)".

The title of use of dwelling (heading "e") should be marked in case of every person. The following title of use of dwelling can be marked: owner (including beneficiary user), tenant (including service dwelling), co-owner, co-tenant, subtenant, night-lodger, persons having family ties to the former persons (e.g. child of the owner, brother of the tenant, etc.) as well as courtesy user, inhabitant without legal rights and user upon settlement o contract for life. The right of use on family ties can be marked provided not rental fee is paid. The title of use of dwelling of those renting the entire flat is always "tenant".

If more than 8 persons live in the dwelling an additional Dwelling questionnaire will be used as a supplement.

An entry is required at Question 5 for all persons born on or before 13 April 1971. For children under 15 years of age (i.e. born on or after 14 April l97l), these questions should be left blank. At Question 6 information is required on the present actual marital status irrespective of the legal status. Thus, for example a deserted wife though legally married should have a tick in box 5.

From the responses to Question 3 it is possible to build up a picture of the changing family situation in Ireland. In previous censuses persons were asked to give their relationship to Person 1 only. While this adequately catered for the most prevalent family types in most households, it did not cater for second families within the one household or the more atypical type of families, for instance where step-children are involved.
In the current formulation Persons 2 to 5 are required to give their relationship to the person(s) previously listed while for households consisting of 6 or more persons, Persons 6 and higher are required to give their relationship to Persons 1 to 4 only. This was done for reasons of space on the form. This layout will enable each of the families in a multi-generational household to be accurately distinguished. Information in relation to families which have been reconstituted following the break-up of previous marriages can also be determined.
The results based on the responses to this question will allow the changing nature of families in Ireland to be charted and will help to plan housing and social welfare programmes.
The example at the back of the Household Form shows how to complete the relationship question for a household consisting of: Helen Murphy, her husband Thomas, their daughter Catherine and grandchild Aoife (Catherine's daughter).

The relationship question is designed to determine families within households. This includes where there are two or more families in the one household. For example, a household consisting of an adult daughter living with her two parents and her own child would be counted as a two family household. The example given below shows how the question should be answered for the child in this situation, where the parents are Persons1 and 2 on the form, the adult daughter is person 3 and the child is person 4.

1. Question 1: Relationship to head of family

[Instructions refer to a graphic of the census form including question 1.]

According to the answer we will be able to define the types of relations between persons. Also, we will receive data regarding the household's structure and composition. Meaning, we will know the number of households including parents and children/one parent/couples with no children, etc.

The answer will assist you in determining the persons belonging to the household: all who have family relations to the head of family or his spouse belong to the household. If you found in the apartment a person who is not related to the head of family, and for whom answer 8 was marked -- "not a relative", you should check whether they and the family prepare most of their meals together. If they prepare most of their meals together they will be considered one household. If not, the person will be registered as a separate household. Therefore, if details have been filled for this person in the household's questionnaire, they should be erased and a separate questionnaire should be filled for him (for the complete definition of household -- see chapter four).

Remember!
This check is very important, since it will determine the number of households in the apartment and therefore also the number of questionnaires to be filled in the apartment.

1.1 Who is head of the family?
Head of the family is that person whom members of the family see as their head. Only when members of the family find it difficult to define this -- set the oldest person as head of family.

In case a person has two wives:

If the wives live in the same apartment and conduct one household, meaning they prepare most of their meals together, then the husband will be registered as head of family, and each wife will be registered as his wife -- in the same questionnaire.

If the wives constitute two households in the same apartment or in different apartments, meaning they do not prepare most of their meals together, then each wife will receive a separate questionnaire and the husband will be included in one questionnaire only -- in which he will be registered as head of family.


1.2 Additional explanations
Other relations (answers 3-7)
Notice: answers 3-7 refer to type of relation to head of family or their spouse. Meaning: A wife's parent will be registered in answer 6 -- "parent", since they are the parent of the head of family's spouse.

[p. 14]

Notice!
Stepson/adopted son should be registered as sons of the head of family.

Example:
-- A couple with children lives in a household together with the grandmother who is the woman's mother.
-- The woman (the children's mother) is listed in the first column of the questionnaire.
-- For the husband mark answer 2 "Female/male spouse"
-- For the grandmother mark answer 4 "Father/mother"
-- For each child mark answer 3 "Son/daughter"


[p. 26]

Attention!
-- Mark "Son/daughter" for a son or a daughter of a spouse from previous marriage also.
-- Mark "Son/daughter" for an adopted child.

8.1 Other relative (answer 10)

If the relation to the person listed first is not one of the answers 1-9, like: nephew, uncle, cousin -- mark "Other relative" (answer 10) and write the type of relation.

8.2 Not a relative (answer11)

A person who belongs to the household, but is not a family relative of the person listed in first column, will mark "Not a relative" (answer 11) and will specify his association with the person listed first. Examples: Sub-lessee, roommate, male/female housekeeper (who manage a joint budget with the household).

In a case of a person who has two wives who live in the same apartment: If one of the wives is listed first, the other will be "Not a relative".

8.3 Checking the association with the household

In cases of "brother in law/sister in law", "not a relative" or "other relative" you have to check if the person belongs to the household. If he is a separate household, you have to fill-in a separate questionnaire for him.

3.12 The head of household - private households
For census purposes, every household must have a head.
The Head of the Household is the person, man or woman, who carries the main responsibility in the affairs of the household.
In most cases it will be obvious who the head of the household is. Usually it is the person who is the chief breadwinner.
In any event, the person recognized by the respondent as the head should be accepted as such for census purposes.
In the case of a group of unrelated persons sharing a dwelling on an equal basis, that member of the group whom the others acknowledge as such should be taken as the head.
A person running a guest house or similar establishment that caters to less than six guests is considered to be the head of that household.
In a one person household, that person is the head.

3.13 Head of non-private household
In group dwellings, the officer in charge, or the most senior staff member (if he is not a household member elsewhere) is to be taken as the Head. If there is no one else who fits this definition, use as the head of the household, the first guest, inmate or patient whom you enumerate.



In enumerating a household:

(1) Enter in the Visitation Record the name of the head of the household and the household number.
(2) Write in the name of each person who spent Census Night in the household on a separate questionnaire and insert the housing unit number at Question 1.

The order of enumeration which is to be followed among persons in household on Census Night is: whether:

(a) Head of Household
(b) Spouse or Common-law Partner
(c) Child of Head and/or Spouse (or Partner) in order of age
(d) Spouse of Child
(e) Grandchild
(f) Parent of Head and/or Spouse (or Partner)
(g) Other Relative of Head and/or Spouse (or Partner)
(h) Domestic Employee or Employee's Relative
(i) Other household members, not related to Head or Spouse (or partner).
(j) Other persons spending Census Night in the dwelling.


5.12 Ensuring that all Persons are included
When you have obtained the list of persons, check to see whether:
(a) any of the usual residents in the dwelling did not spend Census Night in the dwelling.
(b) whether there were any additional persons not normally resident who spent Census Night in that dwelling.


Section 2 - Characteristics

5.20 General
Question 7 to 14, which comprise Section 2, provide some basic characteristics about the individual and are to be answered for all members of the population except those exempted as special cases. Special Cases are always handled by Special Census Takers and instructions for identifying and handling these Special Cases are given in Part 6.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


73. Write 'head' against the name of the head of the household, if he or she was present on Census Night. If the usual head of the household was neither present nor on night duty, write 'head' against the name of the person who was in charge of the household on Census Night. Then write the relationship of each person to the head or to his or her parents if they were present, or show the relationship husband/wife.

74. Sometimes a person is related to more than one person in the household. In such cases concentrate first on relating parents and their own children, then on relating husbands and wives, and then on relating persons to the head of the household or other members of it.

75. Since every person will be entered against the line number in column (b) his or her relationship may easily be written as 'wife of 1 ', '2nd wife of 3', 'daughter of 1 and 2', ' son of 4', 'servant of 1', and so on.

76. Relationships must be described accurately. Be careful to distinguish between children born of the parents and adopted or step children.

77. Where a man and woman live together although not married, treat them as man and wife if they so regard themselves. The census is not concerned with the form of marriage.

78. The following relationships will cover all cases with which the census is concerned: head, wife, husband, son, daughter, mother, father, brother, sister, adopted son, grandson, granddaughter, grandfather, grandmother, adopted daughter.

79. For all other relationships, write 'other relative'. For members of the household who are not related to the head and do not have parents present, write 'servant', 'visitor', or as is appropriate. If such people have their own children present, you will, of course, relate the children to their parents.

80. Where several persons with no family relationship share the responsibility of running the household name one as head and describe the rest as 'partners'.

81. In an institution such as a hospital, or boarding school or prison where there is no head of household, describe the persons as 'patient', 'student', 'prisoner', or as the case may be.

82. Make sure you understand the relationship before you make an entry.

Column P10- Relationship

73. At the same time as you write the names in column P00, code relationships in column P10 and sex in column P11. You will save yourself trouble by doing so.

74. For example, head: code as 1 in the appropriate boxes. Then code the relationship of each person to the head. That is, 2 for spouse, 3 for son, and so on.

75. All the other relatives, like nieces, nephews, grandsons, etc., will be coded 7 for 'other relatives'.

76. You must probe to find out whether the children you have coded as sons and daughters are the head's biological children. If they are not, establish whether they should fall under code 8, (non-relative) or code 7 (other-relative)

77. Code 8 is reserved for members of the household who are not related to the head. Children of such people, if present, should receive code 8 as well.

78. Where several persons who are not related by blood or marriage constitute a household, as in the case of urban areas, code one of them as 'head' (code 1) and the rest as 'non-relatives' (code 8).

79. Make sure you understand the relationship before you make any entry.

Columns P10 and 11: Relationship and sex

62. As you write-the names in column P00, code relationship in column P10 and sex in column P11. You will save yourself trouble by doing this.

(a) For example: for head, code "1" in P10 and tick the appropriate box in P11 as far as sex is concerned. Then code the relationship of each person to the head, that is "2" for spouse, "3" for son, "4" for daughter, "5" for brother/sister, "6" for father/mother, "7" for other relatives such as nieces, nephews, grandsons, etc., ''8" for non-relatives such as visitors, friends etc., and "9" for those who cannot be categorized as above, not stated or don't know.

(b) You must probe to find out whether the children you have coded as sons and daughters are the head's biological children. If they are not, establish further whether they should fall under "7" (other-relative) or "8" (nonrelative).

(c) There are several persons who are not related by blood or marriage but constitute a household, mostly in urban areas. Without telling them code one of them as 'head', (code "1") and the rest as 'non-relative' (code "8").

(d) Sometimes it may happen that members of the household are away and cannot be reached even after three visits, and the most responsible person you meet is a house help or any other such person employed by the household. You must probe to establish the most senior member who will have spent the census night in the household. This person must be made the household head. You may then proceed to ask the house help to provide information on the household members.

(e) There are certain communities where women are culturally allowed to "marry" other women. For purposes of the census, marriage should involve only partners of opposite sex. Whenever you encounter such cases where one woman (supposedly the head of the household) claims that another woman is her "spouse" code "7" (other-relative) rather than "2" (spouse) in P10.

(f) Make sure you understand the relationship before you make any entry, and that the entry is strictly and legibly written within the boxes provided.

63. Check that the sex is compatible with relationship; do not assign "male" to persons shown as wives or daughters nor "female" for persons shown as sons or husbands. Take particular care to record the sex of very young children correctly. Often, you will not know whether a baby carried on its mother's back is a boy or a girl. In such cases, you must ask - do not guess. You should ensure that everybody's sex is recorded. Blanks and "don't know" are strictly forbidden.

If they are not, establish further whether they should fall under "10" (other‐relative) or "11" (non‐relative). Note that relatives like stepson or stepdaughter, parent‐in‐ law, son or daughter-in‐law, adopted son or daughter will be treated as "other relative" and will fall under category "10".
- There are several persons who may not be related by blood or marriage but constitutes a household, mostly in urban areas. Without telling them code one of them as 'head' (code "1 ") and the rest as 'non‐relative' (code "11").
- Sometimes it may happen that members of the household are away and cannot be reached even after several visits, and the most responsible person you meet is a house‐help or any other such person employed by the household.

You may then proceed to ask the house help to provide information on the household members.
- There are certain communities where women are culturally allowed to "marry" other women. For purposes of the census, marriage should involve only partners of opposite sex. Whenever you encounter such cases where one woman (supposedly the head of the household) claims that another woman is her "spouse", code "10" (other‐relative) rather than "2" (spouse) in P10.
- Make sure you understand the relationship well before you make any entry. In other words, relationship of each person is linked to the household head (person No. 1 on the list). For instance, the head's relationship to himself/herself is code 01 (head). Ensure that the entry is strictly and legibly written within the boxes provided.

Question 1. Relationship to the person recorded first in household

The code is to be circled which corresponds to one of the prompts given.

For the household member specified first within the household code 1 "person recorded first" is to be marked.
For all other household members corresponding codes are to be marked. For example, if a person questioned is a son of the first person, code 3 corresponding to the prompt "daughter, son" is to be marked. If a person questioned has kinship or in-law relationship to the person recorded first which is different from those listed (e.g., nephew), code 10 corresponding to the prompt "other relation degree" is be marked.

If a household comprises one person, only code 1 "person recorded first" is to be circled.
Persons who are included in a given household, but are not related to any household member either by blood or by law (e.g., nanny or servant living in the household and contributing to it) are to be marked with code 11 "non-relative".

Code 11 "non-relative" is also marked for persons (other than person 1) permanently living in a collective household, excluding those related to each other by blood or law (e.g., husband and wife in a boarding house for the aged or invalids or brother and sister in a children's home) who are to be recorded according to the procedure mentioned above.

For each household member (regardless of the age and marital status) living in the same household with both parents or one of them, the serial number assigned to his (her) mother (related by blood or not) within the dwelling, i.e. the number indicated against her name in column 1 of the List of residents in dwelling is to be recorded. If there is no mother in the household, the number of father is to be entered. If there is neither mother nor father within the household, no number is to be recorded.

For temporary residents in question 1 code 1 "person recorded first" is to be circled, irrespective of the relation degree to permanent residents in this dwelling.

If two or more temporary residents are relatives, they are considered a household consisting of two or more persons. For one of them code 1 "person recorded first" is to be circled and other members are marked with codes corresponding to their relation degree.

Question I. Relation to the person recorded No 1 in the household
The enumerator is to encircle the code corresponding to one of the prompts proposed.

For the household member recorded first code 1 "person recorded No 1 (reference person)" is to be encircled; for all other household members – the code corresponding to one of the prompts proposed. For instance, if the person interviewed is the son (natural, adopted or stepson) of the reference person, code 3 is to be encircled, which corresponds to the prompt "daughter, son." If the person questioned has a different filiation to the reference member (other than those mentioned (e.g. nephew)), code 10 is to be encircled, which corresponds to the prompt "other relation degree."

If a household comprises one person, only code 1 "reference person" is to be encircled.
Persons living in a given household, but being not related to any household member either by blood or by law (e.g., nanny or servant living in the household and contributing to it) are to be marked with code 11 "non-relative".

For each household member (regardless of the age and marital status) living in the same household with both parents or one of them, the serial number of his (her) mother within the dwelling, i.e. the number indicated against her name in Form 1 "Enumeration form - List of residents" (column 1), is to be recorded in a special box. If there is no mother in the household, the number of father is to be entered. If there is neither mother nor father within the household, the box is not to be filled in.

For the population of collective households:
For the person recorded in Form 1 "Enumeration form - List of residents" under 1, code 1 is to be encircled, which corresponds to the prompt "reference person", for all other persons – "non-relative."

If among members of a collective household there are people related to each other (e.g. husband and wife in a boarding house for the aged and disabled or brother and sister in a children's home), then one of those people should be recorded No 1 in the dwelling and the other – No 2 with specification of how he/she is related to person No 1 in a usual way and all remaining persons are to be recorded after these two and marked under "non-relative."

For temporary residents in question 1 code 1 «reference person» is to be encircled irrespective of their degree of relation to permanent residents in the dwelling.

If two or more related persons are temporary residents, they are considered a household consisting of two or more members. In this case for one of them code 1 «reference person» is to be encircled and for the other the codes corresponding to their relation degree are to be marked.

4.5 Dwelling Unit (DU): It may be defined as any structure, permanent or temporary, where people sleep. It may be hut, a house, a store with a sleeping room or rooms at the back or sides, a shelter of reeds/straw such as those used by fishermen, or any other structure where people sleep.


Part B: Characteristics of Individual Household Members


1. All persons


B3. Relationship to head of household: The relationship of each member to the head of the household must be a blood relationship as opposed to the usual cultural or traditional relationship where one's brother's children are taken as one's children. In this respect, step-children or foster parents must be considered as "Other relatives". You must be particularly careful if the respondent is not the head of the household. For instance, if the respondent is the wife of the head of the household and she says that Yusuf is her son by her previous husband, then Yusuf should be taken as "Other relative" and not the head's son.
Note: If you are enumerating in an institution, each of the listed persons will be considered as an institutional member and will be given a code of "6".
If there are two or more unrelated persons in the household treat one of them as head (code 1) and the others as non-relatives (code 5).
Ask for the relationship of each person listed in the household to the head of the household. Record the relationship of the person to the head of the household in column B3 using the codes.
Caution: Please note that the respondent may not always be the head of the household and so the relationship of each member must be with reference to the head.

P02. Relationship to head of household
This refers to the relationship of any member of the household to the head of that household. The categories of relatives of the head are provided.

Code 1 should be shaded once in the questionnaire, because a household will only have one head and only one code should be shaded for a person.

If code 3 for son/daughter is shaded, ensure that a head is the biological or real parent of the child, "Makolo ake omubereka". For other children -- e.g. stepsons and stepdaughters or adopted children to the head -- make sure that you shade 4 for "Other relative" instead of son or daughter.

If you are enumerating in an institution, each of the listed persons will be considered as an institutional member and will be given code 4.

If a household comprises two or more unrelated persons, treat one of them as head (code 1) and the others as non-relatives (code 4).

Caution: Please note that the respondent may not always be the head of the household, but the relationship of each member must be with reference to the head.

Questions 1-3

These questions are straightforward. The information is already on the Household Form, but should be asked again as a check.

In Question 2, shade the appropriate box, whether the person is male or female.

In Question 3, you are required to transfer the information on the relationship to head of household from Column 7 in Form 3 and those listed in Column 12 which are the visitors of the household. In the first place write the relationship as given in Column 7 in Form 3 on the line provided in Question 3.

Then you are required to mark the code box with the relevant relationship code. Refer to the list of codes given in the Enumerator's Code Card (Form 14(a)/14(b)/14(c)). Give careful thought to the codes you are assigning. Not every type of relationship is given a special code, as some may be grouped. For example, an "uncle" or "niece" of the head, will both be given code 09 (Other persons related to Head). A "friend" or "servant" will be assigned code 10 (Other persons unrelated to Head).

In the case of visitors to the household (persons listed in Question 12 of the Household Form), they should be assigned code 11, even if the visitor is related to the head of the household.

Remember also that it is possible for more than one member of the household to have a particular code. For example, if there are 4 unmarried children of the Head present, they would all be given code 03.

1.2.1. Questions for ALL Household Members


2. Column P2: First name and last name

Write in Column P2 the first names and last names of all the household members, starting with the head of household, as mentioned on the principle for listing the household members. Before starting to ask other questions, write first all the first names and last names. This is done to avoid the possible memory failures of the head of household. Write the usual first name of each household member, followed with his family name. When several members in the household bear the same last name and first name, use surnames when needed.

N.B: When, in a household, one finds a new born not yet baptized, write as a first name the term "boy" or "girl", depending on his or her sex, followed by the family name.

Example:
Boy TRAORE = is a newborn male child, not yet baptized, whose father is Mr. TRAORE.
Girl TRAORE = is a newborn female child, not yet baptized, whose father is Mr. TRAORE.

First and last name of the enumerated, family ties or relationships, and sex.

Column 1

The boxes for this column say:
[Depiction of enumeration form; section: "first and last name of the enumerated, family ties or relationships, and sex."]

In order to annotate the data which is asked for in the three boxes of column 1, the enumerator should take into account whether the dwelling is inhabited by one family, or by more than one family. In a case in which there is more than one family in a single dwelling, first write down the data corresponding to all the members of the first family, then the data for all the members of the second family, and so on.

The order that should be followed for writing down the data for each family should be the following:

Write the first and last name of the head of family, who can be a man or a woman, and mark the circle corresponding to "is the head," as well as the circle for their corresponding sex.

Then, write the first and last name of the wife or companion, and then the names of the single sons or daughters, from oldest to youngest, marking with an X the circles corresponding to the family tie or relationship that they have with the head of their family, as well as their sex.

Then write the first and last names of the people who are also related with the head of the family (mother, uncle, mother-in-law, nephew, etc.) and, for these people, mark with an X the circles corresponding to "also related," as well as their sex.

Finally, write the first and last names of the people who inhabit the dwelling and have "no relation" with the head of family (servants, guests, etc.), marking with an X, for these people, the circle corresponding to "no relation," as well as their sex.

Remember that there are some names that are common for both women and men, such as: Guadalupe, Trinidad, Refugio, etc. In these cases, take special care in marking the sex.

[P. 32]

This is the only data that will be written vertically (from top to bottom). The following questions should be asked for each person in a horizontal fashion (from left to right), until you have finished with them, before continuing on to the next.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image


3.4 Relationship

This question has as its purpose to identify the relation or relationship between the members of the household with the head and helps to classify the households into family and non family.

The relationship is established in relation to the head of household, who can be the informant or not; but who always should appear on the first line of the list.

Relationship is a link or tie of union that exists between members of a household with the head independently of that the link or tie is established by blood relation, conjugal, adoption, affinity or custom.

As was mentioned, the relations of kinship are blood relation (parents, siblings, cousins, children, grandparents, etc.), conjugal (wife, companion, concubine, etc.), adoption (adopted child), affinity (sibling-in-law, child-in-law, parent-in-law, etc.) or custom (godparents, godchildren etc.).

Also, the relations between members of a household with the head of it can be without kinship. For this, write down exactly what is declared, does not have kinship, friend, no kinship, etc.

[p. 86]

People without ties of kinship with the head of household, establish relations of coexistence because they are residents of the dwelling and above all, because they share with the members of the household expenses for food, for example friends.

In the case of the relationship to the head of household not being clear and you cannot determine the relationship, write down the answer that the informant gives. For example, brother of the wife of the head of household.

Only one head of household should exist, and if they declare more than one, leave the written down one in the first line and establish the relationship with respect to this one; write the situation in observations.

For the first person declared, that is, the head of household, ask the question as confirmation: (Name of the head) is head of household.

When starting with the second person on the list, the informant does not understand the first question, ask the second:

What relationship does (Name) have with (Name of the head of household)?

When people live in the home who do a service, write down the name of the occupation that is done in the dwelling, for example: domestic employee (servant), nanny, housekeeper, gardener, chauffeur, etc. The same situation applies to family members of these servants. In these cases, write down, for example: son of the servant, mother of the housekeeper, husband of the servant, etc.

If in the list of people of a household they continue to declare as relationship an "abandoned person," "guest," or "tenant," write it down and continue registering the information of this person.

In cases where a head does not exist, as can happen in groups of friends or students, establish the relationship in relation to the first person that you wrote down in the list; but a household should never be without a head.

When there are more than ten people in a household, in the second questionnaire cross out on the first line the word head and write the corresponding relationship.

1. Relationship

We are interested in finding out the relationship that exists between the head and the rest of people who make up their household; for example: wife, son, grandfather, sister-in-law, godmother, friend, among others.

You should always ask about the relationship with the head of household and not with the informant, unless the informant is the head. Remember that there should only be one head of family and that this person can be a man or a woman.

For the first person of the list, do not read this question, only confirm that this person is the head and circle code 1. For the rest of the residents, mention the name of the person about whom you are going to ask.

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

If they did not declare a head of household, ask the relationship to the first person on the list and circle code 1 for this person.

When the relationship to the head is other than spouse, companion, or child, write the relationship that they report on the line Other, for example: father, niece, granddaughter, brother-in-law, godson, among others. Do not write down proper names: "Sandra's aunt," "Manuel's grandmother," etc. Also write in this space non-family relationships with respect to the head. For example: not related, friend, no family relationship, etc.

[P. 65]

If on this question they report the relationship as "guest" or "border," record the person as such and continue asking about the data for this person.

When they use the word "companion," find out if they refer to a relationship between a couple. if so, circle code 2. If they are work, study, or living companions write friend or no relation under the option other.

When domestic servants live in the household, write down the name of the occupation that they have in the dwelling, for example: domestic employee, servant, nanny, housekeeper, gardener, driver or other. If there are also family members of those domestic servants, write, for example: son of the servant, mother of the doorkeeper, husband of the servant, or the relationship which corresponds to them.

Questions 3.1, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4 are asked to all people whatever their age.


3.1 Relationship

The objective is to identify the relation or link that each one of the members of the household has with the head of household; for example, spouse, child, grandchild, son-in-law, mother, etc.

When asking this question, consider the following:

- For the first person do not read this question, only confirm being head and mark the circle with code 1. For the rest of the people mention the name and ask the question.
- The relationship should be established in relation to the head of household and not the informant, unless he or she is the head.
- Remember that there can only be one head for each household and it can be man or woman.

[To the right of the text is a form for 3.1 Relationship.]

- When the answer is spouse, child or grandchild, mark the circle or the corresponding code.
- If they tell you that the relationship with the head is father, niece, brother, daughter-in-law, godson or sister-in-law, among others, write the answer in Other.
- You should not write down their names, for example it is incorrect to write Son of Juan, or Grandson of Petra.
- When the household is formed by a group of people without relationship, establish it with respect to the first person in the list (who remains registered as head) and write down in the box what they tell you: friend, does not have relationship, without relationship.


[p. 70]

- When they say the word companion or pair, investigate if it refers to a conjugal relationship; if so, mark circle 2, corresponding to the option spouse or companion; if the relationship refers to another situation, like for example, companion of work or school companion, write down friend.

[Below the text is a filled out form.]

- If in a household domestic workers exist, write down in Other, the service done in the dwelling, for example, domestic worker, cook, gardener, etc; if family members live with a domestic worker, write down: son of domestic worker, niece of the cook, etc.
- If one is declared to be a guest, register in Other.
- If they give you descriptions that imply a double relationship or relation with the head, like friend and nephew, sister and godmother or also cousin and brother-in-law, give priority to the closest relationship, in this case nephew, sister and cousin, respectively.

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 all persons
[Questions 1-11 are for all persons.]


3. Family relationship
This question seeks to identify the relation that the people inhabiting the dwelling have with the head of the household; for example, husband/wife, son/daughter, grandson/granddaughter, among others.

Don't ask this question if it deals with a collective dwelling.

Ask about the kinship always referring to the head of the household and not with the informer, unless he/she is the head. Remember, there can only be one head per dwelling independent of whether it is a woman or man.

Don't read the question when you refer to the first person on the list, only confirm that he/she is the head and circle code 1; for the rest of the people ask the question including the name.

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.

Household head Household members will decide who the head of household is on a volunteer basis. It is not necessary for the household head to be residing in the particular household to answer the census questions. In the case where the family members cannot decide who is the household head, the enumerator can consider any member above 16 years old, who has a job and makes a major contribution for household income as the head, and then fill out the Questions related to this person as the household head. The enumerator should respect the comments of other members over 18 years old.

Question 1

Relationship to the household head

Here we will ask the relationship between the household members and household head and circle the suitable code 01-10 for each person.

Non-relationship:
a) those people who do not have any relationship with the head of household but are permanently living together with that household, do not have any financial and material relationship with another household and family, and do not form a separate household.

b) those people who are enumerated in the cover sheet of the census questionnaire, do not have family and blood relationships with each other and are defined as living in the dormitory or other house(3) will be considered as unrelated persons.

Part 2: For all Members of the Household

Question 3: Relationship to head of the household

108. Once you have established the head of a household, mark her/his relationship as [1] "Head" in question 3. Then establish the relationship of each person in the household to this head. As you write the names of household members in column 2, mark relationship in column 3 and Sex in column 4 at the same time. You will realize that in most cases you will be using the relationship to the head, sex and birth order of children to fill-in column 2.

109. For example: for head of household, mark "[1]" in column 2 and if female then mark [2] in column 4. Then mark the relationship of each person to the head of household as given in the code list.

[p. 25]

110. Before you record the information you should find out whether or not the child identified as 'son' or 'daughter' is the head's biological child. If he/she is not, establish further whether he/she falls under [10] - adopted child, [4] -son/daughter in law, [9] -other-relative or [11] - non-relative. This must be done for each child and person in the household.

111. There may be instances where there are several persons who are not related by blood or marriage but who are still members of the same household. These are more likely to occur in urban areas. Take the eldest person or if they are all the same age then make the one who coordinators activities in the house like paying rent, bills, etc. or the person who moved in the dwelling first and invited the rest. Record him/her as "head" [1] and the rest as "non-relative" [11]. There may be many such cases in Yangon or major cities/towns where more than one unrelated person (such as students) may be living in a conventional household. This may also be applicable in the government staff quarters for the single persons.

112. Note that the head of household can be a male or a female. In some places, you will find a woman as the head of the household. Do not always imagine that the head of household must be a man. If the household head is a woman, code appropriately and include the relationships of other household members to her.

Relation to head of the household means the relationship or kinship between the person being counted to the head of that household. According to kin, relation of the household, in the structure of the household, there often is husband/wife, son/daughter, daughter in law, father/mother etc. In many families other relations also exist besides the relationships stated in the questionnaire, like brothers, sisters, aunt, father in law, mother in law, grandfather, grandmother, daughter-in law, granddaughter, grandson, nephew, niece etc. Similarly, in many families there are unrelated members. Due to the information of kin and relation among the household members, it would be helpful for the enumeration - and also for the statistical data - if the composition of the household could also be provided.

The relation/kin of the head of the household with the person being counted should be specified. When stating the relationship, code "1" should be marked to specify the head of the household. If a person is the wife or husband of the head of the household, mark "2". Similarly, by speaking with each member, the appropriate relation should be marked as mentioned. In addition to the relation/kin stated in the form of the questionnaire, other kin should be specified by marking code 6 and should be stated with the appropriate relation, like: brother-sister, brother in law, sister in law, grandson/daughter, mother/father in laws, grandfather/mother, daughter in law, uncle, aunt etc. If the person is not related to the head of the household, write "not related". But persons kept as servant, paid on wage, salary and people not related should be written as "house maid" or "domestic worker".

After collecting the introductory and household information of data sheet 1, there are questions for individual information collection on the right side of the page. To write individual information, a row has been allocated for each member of the family. Sequence and rules for information collection have been put accordingly. In line with this, ask the question and fill the information. The response of each individual question should be written in the respective column.

[] 9 Domestic worker
[] 10 Other, specify

The relatives of head means the relationship of the person enumerated with the household head. While considering the family combination as per the relationship, in most of family there are husband/wife, son/daughter-in-law, daughter/son-in-law, father/mother, husband or wife's father/mother, grandson/granddaughter, domestic workers, etc. In some families, there are other relatives than the stated in the questionnaire (e.g. sister-in-law, grandparents, nephew, niece, etc.). Similarly, in some families there are people other than the relatives.

[p. 46]

With the information of relation in a family, it would be helpful to enumerate and can make statistical information about the family combination. Identify the relationship of the person to be enumerated with the household head. While writing the relationship, if the person is the main person of the family, circle the reference number 1, household head, if the person is husband or wife of the head, then circle the reference 2. In this way, ask each enumerated person about his/her relation with the head and circle the appropriate reference of the relatives. If the person is not a relative and is a person working in wage (servant, cook, etc.), circle the domestic worker reference 9. If the person falls under other relationship other than the stated ones in the questionnaire, circle the reference 10 and specify the relation (e.g. brother, sister, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, grandparents, nephew-niece, maternal uncle-aunt, etc.). If the person is not relative of head, circle the reference 10 and specify it as "no relative".

Question #2: Relationship

a. How to ask the question:
What is the person's relationship to the head of household?

The association between the persons recognized as the head of household and all of the household members is required. This association can be through a family relationship (spouse, child, etc.) or through another cause (domestic employee or other non-relative).

b. How to record the information:

1) First, an "X" is marked in the box located after the word "Head". This person's information is always in the first column of the census form.

2) An "X" is marked in the box corresponding to the relationship of each of the household members.

3) An "X" is marked in the box "Unknown" only when the informant does not know the relationship between a household member and head of household. These cases are, obviously, exceptions.

4. Concepts and main definitions: In order to manage the survey properly, a list of key terms have been established, which should help interviewers in carrying out their work. Detailed definitions are provided in relevant Chapters on individual Modules.

Population: Set of elements which make the whole. That could be all the people in a country or an entity, all households, all household, etc.

Sample: a part of population representing the whole population. Sample selection is a subject of statistical methods that take into account characteristics of both the population and individual members of the population.

Direct interview: Procedure by which information on certain person is collected directly from the person. The person giving information on him/herself is a “direct respondent”.

Reference period: Period about which the respondent is asked questions. The survey uses different reference periods depending on type of required information, respondent‟s ability to remember and objectives of each topic to be analyzed.

Household is social unit consisting of one or more persons who use joint accommodation and food. In other words, a household is a group of person who

p.25

normally live in the same household unit (“live under the same roof”), who are or are not related and who eat together (“eat from the same pot”).

Head of the household: is a person defined as such for the purpose of the survey, irrespective of reason (the oldest by age, decision maker in the household, a person who earns the most income, based on tradition, etc.).

Guest: a person who use joint accommodation and food free of charge together with household members. Guest who stays longer than six months is considered household member.

Tenant of the household: a person who pays for accommodation in a part of a household. This person is not a member of the household whether they eat on his/her own or prepare food seperately. Such tenant is considered a separate household.

Students who study in another town, but they are supported by the household are treated as household members, although they more than six months absent.

Household members: Anybody who meets the following criteria:
Members
A household member is present at the moment of interview, if that is the place where he/she spent at least 6 months of the previous 12 months. The household head should be listed as a member even if they did not spend 6 of the previous 12 months in the household.

Person absent at the moment of interview, if he/she is absent less than six months during the previous 12 months.

Guests or other persons who live in the household longer than six months during the previous 12 months.
Newborn babies irrespectively of duration of their stay in the household as well as the head of the household.

Students who are absent longer than six months but are supported by household members.

Person absent from the household longer than 6 months (including ones serving military service, in prison, religious service, etc.)

Those who live elsewhere, visitors or tourists who are in the household less than six months.

Tenants who eat and who do not eat with the household.

Those who eat in the household but live elsewhere or live in the household but eat elsewhere.

Similar to tenants, students who pay for accommodation and food to the household.
Question 3: Against each of the names listed, indicate the relationship to the head of household by printing the appropriate code. For instance, Cletus and Helen are members of the household and they are children of the head of the household. In this case, the interviewer should write code 3 in question 3 against the names of these two persons. Mabel is the sister of the head of household so code 7 should be entered in her case; while Justina who is Lawrence's mother will have code 10 as the entry for this question.

Definition of Relationships

Question Number 1: what relation or relationship do you have to the head of the home?
Mark with an "X" the circle corresponding to the response of the person. If the enumerated person is the head of the home, begin to mark the corresponding circle and do not ask this question.
With this question it should be kept in mind that:
Head: refers to a person recognized as such by the rest of the members of the home. In the case that there is no agreement between the members, the person who has the economic responsibility should be considered as head of the home.

When the home is formed by unrelated members, consider as head the oldest person in the home.
Spouse of the Head: refers to the wife if the head is male, or the husband if the head is female. This relationship permits any type of matrimonial relation, that is to say that the pair can be married civilly, ecclesiastically, or [consensually] united. In the same home you can find more than one spouse; write them down as such.
Example:
When interviewing Mrs Andrea, she says that she is the companion of Juan who is the head of the home. Although they have been living together for many years as such, they have not thought about getting married civilly or through the church.

In cases of children who cannot answer for themselves or of any person who is not present at the time of the visit, ask this question as follows: What kinship or relationship does [Name of the person] have to Mr. (Mrs.) [head of the household]?
[p. 118]
With this question it should be kept in mind that:
Head (Circle 01): refers to a person recognized as such by the rest of the members of the home.
In the case that there is no agreement between the members, the person who has the economic responsibility should be considered as the head of household. When there are many who contribute economic responsibility, consider as head the person who contributes the most. When the home is formed by unrelated members, consider as head the oldest person in the home.
When the person recognized as head of household is absent, one who satisfies the requirements of the definition, in other words, one who is recognized as "head" of the household or who upholds any of the conditions in their absence will be considered to be head.
Spouse of the Head (Circle 02): refers to the wife or companion if the head is male or the husband or companion if the head is female. This relationship permits any type of matrimonial relation, that is to say that the pair can be married civilly, ecclesiastically, or [consensually] united. In the same household you can find more than one spouse; write them down as such.
Son (daughter) (Circle 03): refers to the children born of the marriage or the consensual union, as well as to adopted children or children raised there.
Son and daughter-in-law (Circle 04): refers to the spouse of the children of the head.
Grandchild or great-grandchild (Circle 05): Mark this circle if it concerns the children of the children of the head or the grandchildren of the head.
Father or mother of the head (Circle 06): refers to the mother or father of the head. Mark this circle, even, when it concerns the father or mother of the head who raised her or adopted her.
Mother or father-in-law (Circle0 7): refers to the father or mother of the spouse of the head.
Other relatives (Circle 08): Include siblings, brothers and sisters-in-law, godfathers, cousins, godsons and daughters; both of the head or the spouse, etc.
In the corresponding line, write down the relationship that the respondent has with the head of the household.
[p. 120]
Domestic service (Circle 09): Refers to domestic servants. These are persons working at the household being enumerated, doing domestic chores and who receive payment in cash and / or in kind for their work; examples: domestic employee, gardener, driver or chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, majordomo, among others.
Non-related (Circle 10): Any member of the household who does not belong to the categories above is included. Example: friends and guests.
[There is a sample image of the form below the text.]
Example:
When interviewing Mrs. Alicia, she states that she is the companion of Florentino, who is the head of household. Although they have been living together for several years, they have not thought about civil or by the church marriage. The answer to the question on relationship to head is marked with:

Section 6 - The census questions

Parts A and B - Urban and RNVs - Questions 1 to 5
Your job as an interviewer to find out and write down on the census form the names of

(i) All people who usually live at the dwelling. Make sure you probe for any old people living in the dwelling (grandparents etc.), any young babies, any adopted children.
(ii) Any people who are visiting the dwelling. This could be people who are only staying a few days; on the other hand they may have been there a few months already.
Note: For the census we do not wish to define a visitor. If a person says he is a visitor, put him/her in the visitors section.
(iii) Any people who slept at the dwelling the night before you are interviewing there

You write down the names of these people in the answer boxes for Ql.

Question 2

What is your relationship to the head of this household?

Give the relationship of children living in the household back to the mother.
Give the relationship of adults in the household back to the head of the household.

[pg.50]

Use the following abbreviations

Wife= W
Son = S
Daughter= D
Adopted son=A/S
Adopted daughter= A/D
Mother = M
Father= F
Brother = B
Sister= SIS
Relative= REL
Friend or any non-relative= FR

We are trying to tell the difference between related and unrelated members of the house. If a person is not related to the head simply put 'friend' (FR). If he is a true brother put brother.
If you have a large family or a large number of visitors you will have to go to a second page. This is explained in Section 7 on page

Part C - Rural Villages

Questions 1 to 5

Question 2

What is your relationship to the head of this household?

[Figure omitted]

You will usually copy down relationships from the Family Record Card.
You must always check that the relationships written on the Family Record Card are correct. e.g. 'Is Mary your daughter?'

01 is always the Head. This has already been printed on each Census Form.
Every Household must have a Head. If there is no man or husband you must choose someone to be the Head of the Household.
For example, a widow living with her unmarried children can be the Head of the Household.
The people in a household are related to each other by using their person numbers and the abbreviations listed below.
02 is usually the Wife of the Head. This is written as W of 01.
Children should always be related to their mother. Their relationships will usually be written as S of 02 or D or 02.
Always ask if any of the children in a Household are adopted.
If one parent is dead or is living somewhere else the children are related only to the living or present parent.
If a man has more than one wife you must relate the children to their correct mother.
If you have problems giving relationship to the head give relationship to another member of the household. For example, sons or daughter of a visitor can be given as son of the visitors i.e. S of 08, etc.
If you have a large family you will have to continue on a second page. There is a special way to show how the people on the second page are related to the people on the first page. This is explained in detail in Section 7 on page number 1.

P1 - Name, P2 - Identification of Overseas Worker, P3 - Relationship to Head

Data on the relationship to head of household identify the different types of family groups and their structures within a household. They provide an indication of the typical relationships among household members. Knowledge of changing family characteristics is needed for the development of social security and welfare programs.

Write the names of the members of the household in column P1 and the codes corresponding to their relationship to the head of the household in P3.

You begin to ascertain the members of the household by asking the respondent: "Who is the head of this household?" Write the name of this person on the first line.

You then proceed to ask the names of the other members of the household by asking, "Who are the persons usually residing here as of May 1, 1990?" Inform the respondent that you want to list the members in the following order:

a. Head

b. Spouse of the head

c. Never-married children of head/spouse from oldest to youngest, regardless of sex

d. Ever-married children of head/spouse and their families from oldest to youngest (son or son-in-law first, followed by daughter-in-law/daughter and grandchildren)

e. Parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, parents-in- law and other relatives of the head or the spouse of the head

f. Non-relatives of head (boarders, household helpers, friends, etc.)


Ask the respondent if there are members of the household who are overseas contract workers. You should also include them in the list of members.

Overseas contract workers are Filipino workers who are presently out of the country to fulfill an overseas work contract for a specific length of time or who are presently at home on vacation but still have an existing overseas work contract.

In writing the names of the members of the household, enter the surname first, followed by a comma and then the first or given name and middle initial, if given. If the surname of a member is the same as the one immediately preceding him, just draw a horizontal line and a comma (______, ) in place of his surname and write the first name of the person as illustrated in the following example:

Santiago, Ismael
________, Rodora A.
________, Teresa
De la Fuente, Jose
________, Karmela


Note that in some parts of the country, people do not have surnames. If you encounter such a case, just write the name as given.

As the respondent mentions a name, immediately ask him the relationship of this person to the head of the household. Of course, each member of the household has a specific relationship to the head by virtue of his presence in the household. Such relationship may or may not be based on kinship.

Enter the appropriate code for the relationship of each household member to the head in P3. The code should be one of those listed at the bottom part of the questionnaire.

If the person is an overseas contract worker, enter 1 in P2, otherwise, enter 2.

In the interpretation of relationship, "children" of the head are the sons/daughters of the head, regardless of age or marital status. A married son, who, together with the members of his family, is a member of his father's household, should be reported as "son " and his wife and children, "daughter-in-law" and "grandson"/"granddaughter" of the household head, respectively.
"Other relatives" includes such relatives as parents-in-law, cousins, grandparents, sisters/brothers-in-law, etc.

Members of the household who are related to the head by blood or affinity but who are boarders, or household helpers should be considered as "non-relatives".

Name (P1), Relationship to HH Head (P2) and Overseas Worker (P3)

Data on the relationship to head of household identify the different types of family groups and their structures within a household. They provide an indication of the typical relationships among household members.

Write the names of the members of the household in column P1 and the codes corresponding to their relationship to the head of the household in P3. Be guided by the following:

1. Begin by asking the respondent: "Who is the head of this household?" Write the name of this person on the first line.

2. Next, ask the names of the other members of the household by asking, "Who are the persons usually residing here as of September 1, 1995?". Inform the respondent that you want to list the members in the


[p. 85 ]

order shown below. This list shows the possible relationships to the household head.


  • Head
  • Spouse of the head
  • Never-married children of present marriage from oldest to youngest, regardless of sex
  • Never-married children of head from previous marriage (if any) from oldest to youngest, regardless of sex Never-married children of spouse from previous marriage (if any) from oldest to youngest, regardless of sex
  • Ever-married children of head/spouse and their families from oldest to youngest: son or son-in-law first, followed by daughter-in-law/ daughter and grandchildren
  • Parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, parents-in-law and other relatives of the head or the spouse of the head
  • Boarders (including relatives who are mere boarders)
  • Domestic helpers (including relatives who are employed as domestic helpers)
  • Non-relatives of head


If the head has more than one spouse living in the same household, list down the name of the first spouse and their children, followed by the second spouse and their children and so on, keeping the nuclear family together, if possible.

Write down the names of all household members in the order mentioned above.

Also inform the respondent that you need to list all household members who are overseas workers. An overseas worker is a household member who is currently out of the country due to overseas employment. He or she may or may not have a specific work contract or may be presently at home on vacation but has an existing overseas


[p. 86 ]

employment to return to. "TNT" workers are included if the household still considers them as members and if they mention their names when you ask about the names of household members. However, immigrants are excluded.

Take note that boarders are members of a household if they do not usually go to their respective homes weekly. However, if there are 10 or more such persons in the household, do not include them as members of the household with whom they board. These boarders will all be considered as institutional population and will be enumerated separately from the household.

You may sometimes encounter respondents who will insist that you include as member of the household a person who does not qualify as per our census concepts. To avoid antagonizing your respondent, include the person but write the necessary remarks. However, when you leave the household, line out the entries for that person and correct the line numbers. Example of persons whom your respondent would likely insist to be included in their household are students who attend school in Manila or another province or municipality and go home only at least once a month and therefore should be enumerated in the place where he/she is boarding and not in their parents' household.

When you are in doubt as to whether to include a person as member of a household or not, include but enter the necessary remarks/explanation at the back of the questionnaire.

3. In writing the names of the members of the household, enter the surname first, followed by a comma and then the first or given name and middle initial, if given. If the surname of a member is the same as the one immediately preceding him/her, just draw a horizontal line and a comma (__________,) in place of his surname and write the first name of the person as illustrated in the following example.

Example:
Santiago, Ismael
_______, Rodora A.
________, Teresa
De la Fuente, Jose
__________, Karmela
In some parts of the country, people do not have surnames. If you encounter such a case, just write the name as given.

4. As the respondent names the household members, ask the member's relationship to the household head and if the member is an overseas worker.

Write down the appropriate code for Relationship to HH Head in column P2. The code should be one of the 22 codes listed in the Codes Sheet.

If the member is an overseas worker, encircle " 1 " in column P3. Otherwise, encircle "2".

5. If a household has more than eight (8) members, you will need to use additional sheets of CP Form 2. To cue you on this, the shaded question "are there more than 8 members in this household?" found at the bottom of the page of CP Form 2 is addressed to you and should not to be asked of the respondent. If there are more than 8 members in the household, encircle 1 -- YES, and get another sheet for the household; otherwise, encircle 2 -- No. If two sheets of CP Form 2 are used, line-out the pre-printed line numbers on the second sheet and write on top the new line numbers. Thus, for the second sheet replace line number "01" with "09", "02" with "10" and so on until you list the last member in the household.

6. After listing all members of the household in P1, ask the shaded question "Are there any other persons such as small children or infants that we have not listed?" Check appropriate box. If the answer is yes, add his name on the list. If 2 sheets of questionnaires are being used, check the appropriate box on the second sheet only. Verify further by asking "Are there anyone who is usually a member of this
[p. 88 ]
household but is presently away from home on business, on vacation, in school, etc.?" If another name is given, determine if the person is a member according to the rules on household membership. If he is, add his name to the list.

7. Draw a horizontal line across P1 after the name of the last household member and affix your initials above this line; afterwards draw an X-mark down to line number 8.

Columns P1 to P12 for All persons
Columns P1 to P12 are to be accomplished for all household members regardless of age.

Data on the relationship to head of household identify the different types of family groups and their structures within a household. They provide an indication of the typical relationship among household members. Knowledge on changing family characteristics is necessary in the formulation of social security and welfare programs.
[pg. 101]
Write the names of the members of the households in Column P1 and fill out Columns P2 and P3 for the relationship to the head and sex, respectively. The complete list of codes corresponding to their relationship to the head of the household is found at the bottom of page 2B of every CPH Form 2. Be guided also by the following:
Begin asking the respondent, "Who is the head of this household?" Who are the persons residing here as of May 1, 2010? Write the name of the household head on the first line. Write "head" on the line provided and enter "01" in the boxes in column P2. Determine the sex of the head by asking the question. "Is [the respondent] male or female? Write "X" in the box corresponding to "1" if male, or in the box for "2" if female.
Ask the name of the other members, their relationship to household head and sex. Inform the respondent that you want to list the members in the order of listing shown below (or as indicated at the bottom of page 2B). This list shows the relationship of members to the household head:

[] Head
[] Spouse of the head
[] Never-married children of head/spouse from oldest to youngest, regardless of sex, and never-married children of head/spouse from previous marriage (if any) from oldest to youngest, regardless of sex
[] Ever-married children of head/spouse and their families from oldest to youngest (for instance, son first, followed by daughter-in-law, then grandchildren; or son-in-law first, followed by daughter, then grandchildren, as the case may be)
[] Other relatives of the head such as parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, parents-in-law, and others (including other relatives of the spouse of the head)
[] Nonrelatives of the head such as boarders (including relatives who are mere boarders) and domestic helpers (including relatives who are employed as domestic helpers).

The order of listing will help the respondent in recalling and reporting all the members of the household. Following this order of listing is imposed primarily to avoid omission of household members from the list.
If the head has more than one spouse living in the same household, list down the name of the first spouse and their unmarried children, followed by the second spouse and their unmarried children, and so on, keeping the nuclear family together, as much as possible.
[pg. 102]
Also inform the respondent that you need to include in the list all household members who are Overseas Workers. Undocumented workers who are commonly called "TNT" ("tago nang tago") are included if the household still considers them as members and if the respondent still mentions these TNT's names when you ask about the names of household members.
However, immigrants are excluded from the census. Refer to Section 3.3 Chapter 3 (page 21) for the definition of overseas workers.
Take note that boarders are members of the household if they do not usually go to their respective homes weekly. However, if there are 10 or more of such persons in the household, do not include them as members of the household. These boarders will all be considered as institutional population and will be enumerated separately from the household.
You may sometimes encounter respondents who will insist that you include as member of the household a person who does not qualify as a household member as per our census concepts. Explain to the respondent that we are strictly adhering to the census concepts and that the person he/she wants to include in his/her household will definitely be included in another household following strictly the concepts/definitions of the census. Example of persons whom your respondent would most likely insist on including in his/her household are students who attend school in Manila or in another province or municipality and go home at least once a month or at the end of every semester. Such students should be enumerated in the place where they are boarding and not in their parents' household.
When you are in doubt as to whether a person should be included or excluded as member of a household, include that person first but write the necessary remarks/explanations at the bottom of page 2D of the questionnaire. Refer this matter to your supervisor.
In writing the names of the members of the household, enter the surname on the first line and then the first or given name and middle initial (if given), on the second line.
If the surname of a member is the same as the one immediately preceding him/her, draw a horizontal line (----) in place of his/her surname and write the first name of the person on the second line.
Note that in some parts of the country, people do not have surnames. If you encounter such a case, just write the name as given in the appropriate space.
[pg. 103]
As the respondent gives the name of a household member, ask immediately the member's relationship to the household head, "What is the relationship to the head of this household?"
Write the description of the relationship to the household head and enter the appropriate code in the boxes in Column P2. The code should be one of the 22 codes listed at the bottom of page 2B.
"Children" of the head are the sons/daughters of the head, regardless of the children's age or marital status. A married son, who, together with the members of his family, is a member of his father's household should be reported as "son" and his wife and children, as "daughter-in-law" and "grandson"/"granddaughter" of the household head, respectively.
Note that they will have these relationships if they qualify as members of the same household.
"Other relatives" include such relatives as parents-in-law, cousins, grandparents, sisters-/brothers-in-law, and others.
Members of the household who are related to the head by blood or affinity but who are boarders should be considered as boarders. Similarly, household/domestic helpers should be listed as household/domestic helpers even if they are related to the head or to other members of the household by blood or affinity.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

37 Relation to the head of household (please write in respectively: head of household, wife or husband, son, daughter, grandson, father, etc.) (Question 7) [p.52]
1. For a person, who, in accordance with the rules set forth in 31, has been considered to be head of household, the "head of household" title shall be written down in question 7. The same title shall be written down for the individuals creating single-person households.
2. For all other representatives of a given household, the relation to the head of household shall be specified by writing in respectively: "husband" ("wife"), "son", "daughter", "stepson", "stepdaughter", "father", "mother-in-law", "brother", "grandson", "granddaughter", "aunt", or "distant relative" if there is no possibility of specifying the kinship. A person, who is not related to the head of household but is considered to be a member of the household due to the provided financial support, shall have the "not related to the head of household" answer written down, or, in abbreviation "n. related".
It must be taken account that such levels of relation to the head of household as "tenant", "subtenant", or "co-tenant" cannot be used while specifying the kinship. They are members of their respective household and should be considered "head of households" in the social units they are members of.
3. The principles of closest kinship shall apply while identifying relation to the head of household, so, in the first place such individuals as husband or wife, children or parents, etc. Individuals in a relationship having children who are not engaged shall be registered next to one another. However, if there has been a mistake, due to which it is impossible to keep the proper order, the annotation shall not be corrected, nor shall be a new form used. It is enough to justify the relation in a comprehensible manner (for example, "Janek's wife", "grandson, Czesław's son").
4. If there are certain individuals living in a dwelling but not supporting the household financially (such a case is discussed in question 31, point 5 on page 47), such individuals shall be classified with proper terms and titles, such as: "help", "apprentice", "agricultural worker", "student", "hired worker".
It should be remembered that the above concerns only single individuals. If a help lives in a given dwelling together with his or her child, then they create a separate household ("head of household" and "daughter" or "son"). Such individuals may be both permanent and temporal inhabitants (typically staying in a dwelling for over 2 months).
5. If in a given dwelling there are also other individuals staying there in a temporary manner, then they shall be registered as follows:

a) If the duration of the stay has been specified as lasting up to 2 months and if they are related to the head of household the relation shall be specified similarly to other inhabitants or, if there is no kinship, they should be classified as "guests".
b) If the duration of the stay has been specified as lasting over 2 months it should be specified whether or not the said individuals support the household financially. Afterwards, the division into household shall be made in the same manner as for permanent inhabitants.

7.3. Classical (conventional) family questionnaire

In this question we have to fill-in a table with several codes to establish the relation of the private household members and the reference person.

Every classic household must have a reference person.
By reference person, we understand the family member that is considered as such by the other members, has to be a resident in the dwelling, is 18 years old or older and preferentially is responsible for the dwelling.

This reference person must always be a dwelling resident, but may be absent on the census moment.

In families where these conditions do not apply, use the oldest person as the reference person.

On Column 2 you must collect the complete name of the reference person and the first and last name of all the others.

On Column 3 you must apply the corresponding relationship code to every individual in relation to the reference person.
The codes available in this column are:

Columns 5 and 6 are only filled-in by individuals who have a father or a mother residing in the dwelling, with the corresponding code number of the father (column 5) and the mother (column 6), using for that purpose the code number that is in column 1.

For columns 4, 5 and 6 you must use only the codes shown on column 1.
To correctly fill-in the family questionnaire you must ask:

-- Which are the family relationships of every single person with the reference person?
-- Who is the spouse if the reference person is married or is living as such?
-- Who are the parents, in those cases where the parents live together with the reference person?

Mark one of eleven suggested prompts.
[An image was omitted from the original document]

If a household is represented by a single person, mark the "Person No. 1" option.
If a respondent has a different relationship to the reference family member, or different characteristics from those indicated above (for example, a nephew), mark the "other degree of relationship, characteristics" prompt.
If the answer of the respondent makes it difficult to identify the proper option, refer to the last page of the cover, "Census Documents for the Dwelling", where you can find solutions to some difficult cases.
Those who belong to the given household but are not related to person No. l (e.g., a nurse-maid, servants and their family members living in the household and contributing therein) should be identified by the "Unrelated" prompt ( e.g., the "Unrelated" prompt would be marked for a nurse-maid and her daughter).
For each member of the household (regardless of the age or marital status) living together with one or two parents in one household, in the special field of the form you should indicate the ordinal number of his/her mother (own, step or foster) assigned to her in column 1, List A, Form S (she was recorded under the same number in Forms K or D.

For the population of collective households:
- the person listed under No. 1 in List A, Form S is identified by the "Person No. 1" option, all others - by the "Unrelated" prompt.
If among the members of collective households there are people related to each other (e.g., man and wife in a boarding-house for elderly and disabled people or brother and sister in an orphanage), one of them should be recorded first in the dwelling, the other - second, indicating their relationship in a standard manner, while all others should be logged after them and identified by the "Unrelated" prompt.

Question 1. The first member of a household shall be marked with "the first one recorded". Other household members shall be marked by the relationship with the first one recorded.

One of the following prompts shall be marked.
[Omitted image examples.]

Person who is the first one to be recorded within the household shall be marked in accordance with a prompt "the first one recorded". Other household members - a mark in accordance with one of the following given prompts.

A "mother, father" prompt will be marked by the parents, both related and not-related (stepmother, stepfather).
A "sister, brother" prompt will be marked by sisters and brothers, both related and step.
A "mothers-in-law, fathers-in-law" prompt will be marked by parents of a husband or a wife who was the first to be recorded. With that it does not matter whether marriage was registered or not.

[pg.31]

If a census taker has doubts about which prompt to mark according to the answer of the respondent, he shall use additional tables on the second page of the Cover, where some of the cases of blood relations are listed.

A "non-relative" prompt shall be marked for those who are a part of this household, but does not have any relative (blood) relations with the first one recorded (for example, hired housekeeper who helps to keep the households - baby-sitter, governess and members of their families, who live within the household and contribute to it, children and seniors under wardship and patronized, who are not relatives to the first one recorded) - for example, a "non-relative" prompt will be marked by the baby-sitter and her daughter. With that, one shall indicate in a special field how he/she is related to the first one to be recorded within the household (for example, a baby-sitter, a daughter of a baby-sitter, a hired employee, tutored step-child).

Every member of a household (regardless of age and whether he is married or not) living within the same household with both parents or only one of them, shall be marked with a serial number of his/her mother (either related or step-mother) from column B of Table 1 of Form S. If there is no mother in the household, and there is only father (related or step-father), then the serial number of a father will be indicated. If there is neither mother nor father in the household, then neither mark is put.

Serial number of a mother (father) is put only in case they belong to the same household with the respondent. If children live with their parents in the same premise but refer to other premises, then the number of a mother (father) should not be marked.

In case household consists of one person then this person is indicated as "the first one to be recorded".

[Omitted example images.]

Individuals who permanently reside in dormitories, hotels and rest houses are regarded as independent households. For example, if three students live in the same room of a dormitory and consider that each of them lives independently (not combining the sources for food and utilities), then they shall be enumerated as three independent households, each of them consisting of 1 person.

[pg.32]

If the think they live as one household (keep the house, combine their income either wholly or partially), they make up one household, consisting of non-relatives. If two of them live within one household (keep the house, combine their income either wholly or partially), and the third one lives separately (not combining their means for food and utilities), then they shall be enumerated as two households, consisting of two and one person respectively. Family, permanently residing in a hotel, is enumerated as a private household, consisting of relatives.
In collective households the question 1 is filled in the following way:

- A person who is filled in Table 1 of the form S under number 1 shall be marked under "the first one recorded" prompt.
- Other members of a collective household within this premise will be marked under "non-relative" prompt.

4.2. Part B: individual characteristics

B04: relationship with the head of household (CM)
The relationship (by blood or by marriage) with the head of household is that which the household members and visitors have with the CM.
For each member of the household, record the code corresponding to the link with the CM:

01 For head of household (CM);
02 For spouse of CM (EP);
03 Son or daughter of CM (child);
04 Brother or sister of CM (F/S)
05 Father or mother of CM (PAR)
06 Grandson/daughter of CM (PF);
07 Nephew/niece (son/daughter of sister or brother);
08 Uncle/Aunt (elder/younger brother or sister of the father or mother);
09 Daughter in law/Son in law (spouse of the son of the CM or spouse of the daughter of the CM);
10 Other relatives of the CM;
11 Domestic servant;
00 Not related to the CM.
[p. 32]
If the head of household is absent or unavailable to answer the questions and another member presents themselves as a respondent, you should pay particular attention by filling in the 'relationship link' column; you should always remind the respondent that you are interested in the relationship of the member relative to the head of household (absent or unable to be present) and not in relation to himself.
Note: The head of household is not necessarily a man, even if this is the most frequent case. Past surveys have shown that more than 20% of households are headed by a woman. In some households, especially those of polygamists, the household considers the husband to be the CM even though the latter belongs to another household. In this case, the spouse (or one of the spouses) who is a resident member, recognized as the authority in the absence of the husband, shall be considered as CM. In this case, if the latter lives with spouses in the household, her co-spouses will be registered as ''other relatives.''
In cases where the declared CM is a non-member, designate another member as CM (after identifying the person who holds authority) and record it on the first column (person no. = '01'). It may be a brother, mother, uncle, head of household or any other person empowered to make decisions in place of the absent CM.
If the husband is not part of the household investigated but he spent the night of reference there, he will be considered a visiting spouse. In this case, record the wife as CM (code '01'). The husband will be recorded before the children and the other members.
Example: Sélbé Sandor is Diogaye Diouf's second wife. She lives in a house different from her husband who spends most of the time with the first wife. Sélbé will be recorded as CM in all cases. Diogaye Diouf will be registered as a visitor if he has spent the night of reference at Sélbé, otherwise he will not even appear in the questionnaire.
Here, the term spouse (code 02) is synonymous with spouse or partner, whether the head of household is male or female, whether the couple is legally married or not. The sons or daughters (code 03) here are the biological children of the head of household.
Attention: For cultural reasons, respondents often report adoptive children as their sons or daughters; always ask the question to make sure. If necessary, record them as other relatives (code 10). Similarly, the terms father/mother (code 05) of the head of household refer to their direct ascendants. The other persons designated under this term when in reality they are not, will be registered in the category 'other relatives' (code 10). Follow the same logic and the same approach to register siblings (code 04), nephews/nieces (code 07) and grandsons/daughters (code 6) of the head of household, and so on.
[p. 33]
In summary, the adoptive relatives of the CM (adoptive father, adopted child, and so on) will always be classified in ''other relatives'' (code 10). Household members not related to the head of household shall be classified in category '11' if they are domestic servants and in category '00' if they are other persons who are not related to the CM (friends, children of friends and so on).
NB: The meaning of the relationship: (name) is [relative to] the CM.
For example: If the CM is the son of Mahourédia Fall, he is the uncle of Kène Beugoul Diagne.
Relationship of the CM with Mahourédia Fall: Code 05 (Mahourédia is the father of the CM).
Relationship of the CM with Kène Bougoul Diagne: Code 07 (Kène Beugoul is the niece of the CM).

Relationship to the household reference person (description) and relationship to the household reference person (column 8)

The text for the household reference person, entered in row 01, is already entered. The code of the relationship in column 8 is also already determined and entered.

If more than one person lives in the private household, the enumerator must determine for each person the relationship to the household reference person and enter in column 8 the code of the relationship. The list of codes for coding the relationship is on the last page of Guidelines for Enumerators.

Child (son/daughter) is entered by the enumerator for every child living in the household with one or both parents. The age of the child is no important. It is only important that the child has never been married or that the child does not live in a consensual union with another person. It is also not important whether the reference person is the child's biological father/mother, which means that the answer "child" is entered by the enumerator also for the child(ren) of the spouse or partner and for all adopted children.

If the entered relationship to the household reference person is not specially mentioned in the list of codes (e.g. aunt, uncle), the enumerator enters in column 8 code 12 (other relative).

[p. 25]

For persons who are not members of the household in which they temporarily live, the enumerator enters temporarily present and code 60 in column 8.

For persons temporarily living abroad for more than a year, the enumerator enters in column 8 code 61, irrespective of the relationship to the reference person.

A person temporarily living abroad while other members live in his or her household must not be entered as the household reference person.

If the entire household is temporarily living abroad, the enumerator enters all persons into the POM/GO List of persons in the household as other private households. For all household members code 61 must be entered in column 8. The already entered code 00 for the household reference person should be crossed and left of the field code 61 should be entered.


8 Relation to the household reference person

The data are copied by the enumerator from column 8 of the POM/GO List of persons in the household for all persons, irrespective of whether they are household members or they are only temporarily present in the household/dwelling.

For a person living in the household alone (a single household), the enumerator always enters code 00.

For persons who according to Guidelines for Enumerators are not entered into the POM/GO List of persons in the household (institutional households), the enumerator enters data directly on the P-3 Census questionnaire for persons so that the first person in the institutional household gets code 20 and all other persons in the institutional household get code 21.

For persons who are not household members and who according to Guidelines for Enumerators are not entered into the POM/GO List of persons in the household, the enumerator enters for all persons code 60 directly on the P-3 Census questionnaire for persons.

Household head
In the first instance, the head of household is the person that the household regards as such. If necessary, the head can be defined as the main decision-maker, or alternatively, the person who owns or rents the dwelling, or the person who is the main breadwinner. The head can be either male or female.

If two people are equal decision-makers, the older of the two should be named as head of the household. In a household of totally unrelated persons, the oldest should be named as the household head.

Only a person present in the household on census night or returning there the next day can be entered in the questionnaire as head of the household.

Acting head of the household
The person who assumes decision-making responsibility in the absence of the head of the household. If the person who would normally be considered the head of the household is away on census night and does not return the following day, another person must be designated as acting head of the household.


Question P-04 -- Relationship

"What is (the person's) relationship to the head or acting head of the household?"

In this question we are trying to find out if people are living together as families. However we will only capture relationships to the head of the household or acting head (listed in Row 01). Read all possible categories to the respondent. For people who are not related to the head of the household by blood or marriage put category 13.

"Partner" of the head of the household belongs to the same category as "husband/wife" -- category 02. Partners are two people of opposite sex who live together in the same household like married couple but who are not married to each other. However, if gay couples choose this category record it without question.

Note that there are four possible categories for children:

Sons and daughters by birth = 03.

Adopted children = 04.

Step-children = 05. A step-child is a child of the spouse or partner of the household head by a previous marriage or relationship.

Foster children = 12 or 13.


Note that we are collecting data on biological relationships. If you interview using a language other than English, probe to be sure that you have the right information.

National Bureau:
In row 01 (for the head or acting head him/herself) you automatically put 01.

If you are interviewing a single-person household you also do not need to ask the question, simply mark category 01.

The head or acting head of household referred to is the person identified in the first column of the questionnaire.

Names of persons in household on census night: Once you have identified an acceptable respondent, begin by asking the respondent who is the head of household and if he/she spent census night with the household. If not, ask who was in charge of the household census night. This person is the "head of household" for census purposes and is the first person to be listed.

Guide for listing names on the questionnaire:
1. Head of household (person in charge and present census night)
2. Spouse of person listed as head (husband or wife)
3. Never married children of the above listed couple from eldest to youngest
4. Eldest married child of the head and spouse (son/daughter)
5. Spouse of eldest child (wife of son/husband of daughter)
6. Children of eldest child and their spouse from eldest to youngest
7. List any other married children of head, their spouse, and their children from eldest to youngest
8. Second wife of head (if any), assuming the head is male. If first wife is head for the census, second wife is marked as "other relative"
9. Parents/parent-in-law of the head
10. Brother/sister of the head from eldest to youngest
11. Grandchildren of head
12. Niece or nephew of head
13. Any other relatives like cousins, aunts, etc., mark as "other relative"
14. Non-relatives/guests
15. Servants, marked as "non-relatives"


Note: for newborn babies without names, write, "new born". For members of institutional households, mark all as "non-relative".
  • When the respondent gives you a name, ask what is the person's relationship to the "head of household" and sex
  • Shade in the serial number for each person listed
  • Enter the name of each person in the rows under Question 1 (Q1)
  • Write names in full (tripled: name of person, father and grandfather). If the respondent is reluctant to give you the name of a person, write the relationship of the person to another whose name is given. For example: "wife of [respondent]" or "sister of [respondent]"


[Below the text is a form showing questions 1-3. This illustration is omitted here]
  • Mark the relationship (Q2) for each person as they are named.

  • Children should always be listed after their mothers, starting with the eldest child.

  • Mark the sex (Q3) for each person as they are named.
  • Ask the respondent to name everyone who spent census night with the household. Shade the serial number, write the name in full, and mark the relationship and sex as each person is listed.
  • If the respondent names more than eight persons who were in the housing unit on census night, you will need to ask them to pause while you get out another questionnaire.
  • When the respondent finishes listing persons, ask if they are sure they have listed all persons who spent census night with the household, especially babies and elderly persons.
  • Ask the respondent if there were any household members working census night such as night-shift workers or hunters away for one night.
