Question 14

Your religion, church or religious direction.

Everyone is free to decide his/her confession religion, therefore the interviewer should find out the answer to each respondent individually.

For the completion of this question, the interviewer uses one of the possible answers included in the coded list of religions (confessions) and the correspondent numerical code is written in the intended box. If the replier is considered to be a follower of one of the religious directions, 14th question should be completed using codes "01"-"16" as following:

"01" Follower of the Armenian Apostolic church.
"02" Catholic.
"03" Orthodox for persons who consider themselves followers of Russian Orthodox, Georgian Orthodox, Greek Orthodox and other Orthodox churches.
"04" Nestorian (Assyrian) church, for those who are followers of Eastern Christianity.
"05" Follower of the Evangelical church
"06" Jehovah's Witnesses
"07" Protestant
"08" Mormon
"09" Molokan.
"10" Yezidis.
"11" Pagan
"12" Muslim
"13" - Judaism.
"14" Krishna Consciousness or Hare Krishna
"15" Transtsentral meditation,
"16" Other religion follower, which is not listed in the list.
"17" Code for those who would consider themselves as nonreligious (including the "atheists").

Children's religion is determined by the parents.

Taking into account the fact that the question may not be desirable for some individuals, it is possible to refuse to answer this question and in such cases "18" is written in answer tab.

Explanation: Please indicate the church or religious denomination that you belong to. If you are not certain whether one of the items corresponds to your religious affiliation, please enter your religious affiliation in the text line.

The legal membership in a church or religious domination should be indicated - anyone who is unsure if their religion is one of the religions to be marked may enter their religion on the text line.
This question has been asked for more than 100 years on the population census questionnaire. Also, religion is a socio-cultural characteristic that becomes significant in different ways of life (different career emphases, family establishment patterns and number of children). The recognized religious denominations have especially placed value on the inclusion of this question in the population census.

The information on religion is - as with all other characteristics - only published in tabular form. For the church tax, the religious denominations receive the information from the registration office, not from the population census.

Column 20 - Religion: What is [the respondent]'s religion?

Religion is a faith a person follows or membership to a spiritual organization. It is important to present the question on the type of religion to all members of the household and fill this column. When the answer is "Christian" to this question, then the specific type has to be further identified and filled in column 20 by choosing one from codes 1 to 3 in column 20. Hence the type of religion each member follows has to be identified by asking the member and cross checking with the list given at the top of the column and to be entered in the space provided in the column and the correct code in card column 37.

1 = Orthodox
2 = Protestant /Seventh day Adventist. Pent costal, Lutheran Mekane Yesus, Baptist, Mennonite, Anglican, Presbyterian, /
3 = Catholic
4 = Islam
5 = Other religion /Example: Hindu, Jew, Jehovah, Behay, etc. /
6 = Idolatry /Sun, River, Tree, etc. /
7 = Pagan

Sometimes it may be attempted to predict religion of household members simply be taking the household head's religion. Since this is not the right approach, each of the household members must be interviewed and the response has to be entered in the column and its code in card column 37. Husband and wife can have different religions.

The type of religion filled for children will be the religion of their parents. For children born from parents with different religions their father's religion will be taken for them.

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 19: What is (name's) religion?
Religion is an affiliation with a group having specific religious or spiritual tenets. The code of the religion for each member of the household is entered in the given box by asking each member of the household. If the answer for the religion question is "Christian", the appropriate code should be selected and entered in the card column from codes 1 - 3 that are given below for Christian religions. The religion of a baby who has not been baptized should be coded as the religion of his/her parents. By asking each member of the household, the appropriate code of the religion of each member of the household should be entered. If any other religion is mentioned other than the religions associated with codes 1 - 5, code 6 should be entered.

It is not appropriate to try to guess the religions of all members of the household based on the religion of the head of the household. Therefore, by asking each member of the household, the code of the religion for each member of the household should be written by selecting the appropriate code from codes listed below. Spouses may have different religions and therefore the religion question should be asked separately of each of them and the appropriate code should be entered.

The religion for infants is the same religion as their parents. For infants who were born from parents of different religions, the code of the religion that his/her parents think that his/her religion will be in the future is entered in the given space. The religion codes are given below.

1 = Orthodox (Tewahido, Kibat, Tsega)
2 = Protestant (Seventh Day Adventist, Pentecost, Lutheran, MekaneYesus, Baptist, Mennonite, Anglican, Presbyterian, Meserete Kirnstos,MuluWengel, KaleHiywot, etc.)
3 = Catholic
4 = Muslim (Islam)
5 = Traditional beliefs
6 = Other (Jehovah, Baha'i, Jewish, Hindu, etc.)

Question 7:- What is [the respondent]'s Religion?

Religion is an affiliation with a group having specific religious or spiritual tenet. The code of the religion for each member of the household should be shaded by asking each member of the household. If the answer for the region question is "Christian", the appropriate code should be selected from the codes "1-3" that are given for the codes of Christian religions under this question and this code should be appropriately shaded. The religion of a baby who was born from Christian parents and his/ her age is not reached to baptize during the enumeration should be shaded the code of his/her parents' religion. By asking each member of the household, the appropriate code of the religion for each member of the household should be shaded. If any other religion is mentioned other than the religion listed from the codes "1-5", code 6 should be shaded.

It is not the appropriate way to try to guess the religions of all members of the household by taking the religion of the head of the household. Therefore, by asking each member of the household, the code of the religion for each member of the household should be shaded by selecting the appropriate code from the listed codes of religions given under this question. Spouses may have different religion and therefore religion question for each of them should be asked separately and the appropriate code should be shaded.

The religion for infants should be shaded the same religion as their parents. The religion of infants who was born from parents of different religions, should be shaded the code of the religion that his /her parents think that his/her religion will be in the future. The choices of the religion codes are given below.

1. Orthodox (Tewahido, Kibat, Tsega)
2. Protestant (Seventh Day Adventist, Pentecost, Lutheran, MekaneYesus, Baptist, Mennonite, Anglican, Presbyterian, Meserete Kirnstos, MuluWengel, KaleHiywot, etc.)

Appendix H. Detailed notes on the household form

[Question 12: What is your religion?]

Question 12 provides information on the number of people of each religion or religious denomination. Everyone should answer this question, whether or not they have a religion.

This question is not about frequency of attendance at church or other place of worship. People should answer the question based on how they feel now about their religious beliefs, if any. The question is asking about the person's current religion or belief and not about the religion the person may have been brought up with.

If the person does have a religion they can identify that religion by ticking one of the tick box categories, or by writing in a description of your religion or belief in the write-in boxes.

If they do not have a religion - they should go to the end of the question and mark the 'no religion' box.

If a person's religion is not listed, they should mark this box and write it in.

The word affiliation could cause some amount of confusion in people's minds, but to most people it will mean the "church" they belong to or regularly attend. The question seeks to determine association with all religions, and not just Christianity. Non-Christian religions include Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Baha'i. For the Christian religion, to which the majority of Jamaicans conform, the traditional denominations are listed. Do not confuse denomination with religion. Denominations represent church groups within Christianity. The list contains both denominations (of the Christian church) and religions. If the respondent indicates that he or she belongs to one of those specified, mark the relevant position. Remember that the United Church represents a union of Presbyterians, Congregational and Disciples of Christ. Check "Other" for any denomination or religion not identified. Score "None" for those individuals who indicate that they do not belong to any religion and or denomination.

Question 8
The religion of a person refers to the identification or affiliation of the person with a set or system of religious or spiritual beliefs and practice.

You are to ask the question as given and do not make assumptions. Generally accept the answer given and shade the appropriate box. It is possible for members of one household to belong to different religions.

The category 'No Religion' refers to the people who say they do not have any religious belief. It should be noted that the religion may or may not be represented by an organized group. For example, worship of spirit and nature is to be considered as 'religion' and recorded in the category "Tribal/Folk Religion".

Those who describe themselves as Confucianists or Taoists or belonging to other traditional Chinese religion for example, ancestor worship, should be recorded in the category, 'Confucianism/ Taoism and Other Traditional Chinese Religion' and not in the 'Other' category.

The category 'Other' is for persons who belong to a particular religion which does not fit into any of the categories. It also includes persons who are unsure about which religion they belong to.

You may sometimes have difficulty in deciding whether the answer given is a separate religion or just a sub-group within the main religion. If you are in any doubt, ask the respondent for further information.

Question C10
[The enumeration form is not presented here.]

Purpose
The purpose of this question is for collecting information relating to the religion of each person.

Definition
Religion is the identification or relationship of an individual to a set or system of beliefs and the practice of those beliefs.

How to ask the question
Ask the question as follows:
"What is the religion of ____ (member's name)?"

How to record the answer
In general, accept the answer given by the respondent and do not attempt to make any guesses.

It is possible for members in one household to belong to different religion.
A person who considers his religion as "Confucianism" or "Taoism", or traditional Chinese religion such as practicing ancestor worship, should be categorized as "Confucianism/Taoism/other traditional Chinese religions" (Code 5) and should not be recorded as "Others" (Code 7).

[p.125]

For Chinese, you may come across those who practice a few religious beliefs such as Buddhism, Taoism, Confucianism, ancestor worship, etc. For such cases, you should leave to the respondent to decide which one of the categories he selects for question C10.

The category "Others" in for those who belong to religions which are not classified under any of the given categories, for example, the "Bahai" religion.
"No religions" refers to persons who say that they do not have any religious beliefs.
It should be remembered that it is possible for a person to have religion which is not represented by an organized group. For example, worship of spirits or natural element is common practice among tribal group, e.g., the orang asli. Thus, this practice should be considered a religion and be recorded as "Tribal/folk religion".
You may sometimes encounter a problem in deciding whether an answer given by the respondent is a separate religion or a sub-group of two major religions. If in doubt, ask the respondent for further details. For example, the answer "Catholic" should be classified as "Christianity" (Code 2). Groups such as "Hare Krishnan" and "Sai Baba" should be classified as "Hinduism" (Code 3).

Informer: "Protestant".
Interviewer: "To which church, congregation, or religious denomination does he belong?"
Informer: "He's a Jehovah's Witness".

P11. What is (the person)'s religion or belief?

For the purpose of the Census you should consider all religions or beliefs, regardless of being or not registered or organized. In case you have any doubts concerning the religion of the minors, you should register the one declared by one of the parents.
Read the Question and wait for a reply. If the respondent answers they attend the Anglican Church, mark an X in box number 2. Sometimes it is not easy for people to say what religion they profess because they simply know the name of the church. For example they could say it is Saint Sebastian Church and, in this case, mark an X in box number 7 (Other) and write LEGIBLY the name of the Church in the space provided. DO NOT USE ACRONYMS for names of religions. In case its name is too long, write it in some space available or use the space allowed for the notes.

Be aware that:

For the category No Religion you should include the persons who declared they do not have a religion, including those who said they were animists, atheists or agnostics.
Atheists are those who do not believe in the existence of God.
Animists are those who attribute to things a soul like the human's
Agnostics are those who are skeptical about the existence of any deity for there is nothing that proves it.

Religion is the tradition and spiritual denomination that a person follows. To determine a person's religion, record the help of priests performing death rites and celebrated festivals/occasions. While performing rites, if a Brahmin priest is used, then the religion is Hinduism; a Lama for Buddhism; a Mullah for Islam; a Nokcha or Fedangma for Kirat; a Priest for Christianity. If a traditional indigenous priest is used, then the religion can be Aadim.

Similarly, if the respondent pays respect to the Gods Shiva or Bishnu, then the religion is Hinduism. Worshipping Buddha is Buddhism. Paying respect to Mohammad is Islam. Following Jesus Christ is Christianity. Despite this kind of tradition, many god/goddesses like: Mahadev, Bhimsen, Buddha, etc. are followed and have their respects paid by different communities, so it wouldn't be appropriate to distinguish religion based on worshipped God/ Goddesses alone.

To depict the religion of the person being counted, religion should be enquired. Then "1" should be marked to specify Hinduism, "2" for Buddhism, "3" for Islam, "4" for Kirat and so on. If other than the stated religion is followed by any member, then code "7" should be marked and specified with the name of religion being followed.

Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image

Individual information
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.

Column 9: what religion does [the respondent] follow?
Religion means the culture and belief the people follow. During the time of enumeration, ask the religion of each member in the family is following and write the religion in this column. Keep in the mind that the religion followed by each member in the family might be different and write impartially the religion followed by each member by asking each of them. Some of the gods or goddess are respected by more than one religion or community. E.g. Mahadev, Bhimsen, Buddha, etc. are respected generally by more than one religion or community. Hence, it is not appropriate to identify the religion of a person on the basis of respect or worship to any god or goddess. During the interview, if any member in the family responds that he or she do not follow any religion, this should be written under "not following any religion" as he or she said.

Question 6: Religion
Religion affects the way people chose to live. We need to know how many people in each religion or church.

Q6. What Church/Religion does the person belong to? ____

Who to ask: Ask the head of the household or the person responding.

Get this information for: Every person in each household.

How to ask:
"What church or religion does the person belong to? "There are cases where members of households belong to different church/religious groups. You may have to ask every member of the household. Never assume that everybody in the household belongs to the same church as the head of household.

Also, do not assume that everyone in the village belongs to same religious group or church. There are pockets of households and individuals in some areas who may have different religious beliefs. These are quite common in urban areas where increases in numbers of other religions have occurred in recent times.

How to record:
In the space provided write the name of the church/religion, which the person says he/she belongs to. For example a lady says she's a Lutheran, you write Lutheran Church and not L.C. for short.

-If the person does not belong to a church or religion, write None.
-Christian is not clear. Ask which church the person belongs to (Anglicans, Catholics, Baptist or other )
-Do not write in the boxes.

P8-Religious Affiliation
Religious affiliation refers to a particular system of beliefs, attitudes, emotions, and behaviors constituting man's relationship with the powers and principalities of the universe. Data on this are required for the planning of religion-related and/or -sponsored activities. They may also be used in examining the ethnic characteristics of the population.
Specify the religious affiliation of the member as reported by the respondent on the space provided. Enter the corresponding code in the boxes. Use the codebook as reference.
If the religious affiliation reported is not among the pre-coded answers provided in the codebook, write code "99".
An infant who is not yet baptized must carry the religious affiliation of his/her mother.
Take note that the "Protestant" religion has different denominations; same is true with "other" religions. In case you are in doubt on how to classify a certain religious sect, write the specific religion on the space provided. For Roman Catholics, Protestants, and others who are members of charismatic movements or fellowships and now call themselves as "born again" Christians or charismatics, verify where they are attending religious services. Hence, an El Shaddai follower who still attends to or practices Roman Catholic religious rites should still be considered as a Roman Catholic.

Indigenous peoples (IPs) who practice a traditional religious or belief system may not necessarily belong to any church, unless they have already been converted to a particular religion. If a member of the household, who is an IP, is baptized in any of the formal religions, he/she should be reported as an affiliate of that religion. However, if the IP respondent mentioned that a member of the household believes or has faith in Kabunian, Apo Namalyari, Magbabaya, and so on, which refer to supreme deities in their language, the religious affiliation shall be coded as "96" for Tribal Religion. Tribal religion is characterized by the observance of indigenous rituals, such as, venerating the dead ancestors and invoking divine intercession for good things in life.

Question P-08 -- Religion

"What is (the person's) religion, denomination or belief?"

For babies, write the religion/denomination/belief of their parents. If the parents belong to different religions, write the mother's religion.

For the major faiths other than Christian simply write one of these terms: African Traditional, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Confucian, Taoist, Bahai, New Age. The census does not collect data on the sub-groups of these faiths.

[P. 40]

If the respondent says he or she is a Christian, probe for denomination, e.g. Roman Catholic, Baptist, Apostolic Faith Mission, Nederduitse Gereformeerde Kerk. (We do not want the name of the local parish, congregation or church building, such as "St. Alban's", "St. Paul's", "Bronberg Kerk", etc.)

Try to be as precise as possible. Be sure to distinguish, for example, between "Church of England in South Africa" and "Church of the Province of South Africa".

Write the answer in the boxes provided. These answers will be scanned and coded if possible. You have to be very careful in writing these answers. Use neat capital letters, keeping inside the boxes. Do not leave any spaces and do not use hyphens at the end of lines. If you run out of boxes do not worry. Just write as many letters as will fit.

If the respondent's denomination is Zion Christian Church, you will write

ZIONCH
RISTIA

Do not use any abbreviations.

If a person does not want to answer this question, do not persist but write "Refuses". If they say they have no religion, write "None".

Do not confuse "refuses to answer" with "none". "None" means the person does not have any religion; "refuses" means the person chooses not to answer. He/she may have no religion, or may have a religion but does not want to disclose it.
