Questionnaire instructions view entire document:  text  image
Question B - Condition of presence in the dwelling on the date of the Census, and Sex

The field corresponding to the following cases, by sex, should be marked with an X:

Present resident - For persons who are residents of the dwelling and were present in it on the date of the Census;

Absent resident - For persons who are residents of the dwelling and were temporarily absent from it on the date of the Census, such as:
a) Persons away on leisure or business;
b) Students at boarding schools or living in boarding houses, homes of relatives, etc.;
c) Those temporarily committed to sanatoriums, hospitals or other similar establishments;
d) Persons imprisoned but with legal proceedings still in progress, without final sentence;
e) Sailors at sea.
The persons specified above will be included as present nonresident where they are located on the date of the Census.
Members of the family group should not be included when they are in the places mentioned below, in which case they should be enumerated as present residents of the places where they are on the date of census.
a) Those permanently committed to sanatoriums, asylums or other similar establishments;
b) Those imprisoned and serving sentence;
c) Those who, due to their occupation, employment or other reason, must sleep away from home, such as soldiers at military bases, nurses living in hospitals, domestic employees living at employers' homes, etc.;
d) Workers, generally Northeasterners, who immigrate to the south in search of work on farms or in civil construction.
Present nonresident - For persons who are not residents of the dwelling but who are temporarily present in it on the date of the Census.
It should be noted that persons absent from their dwelling on the date of the Census will be enumerated twice: once at their usual dwelling, as Absent residents, and again as Non-residents present at [p. 26] the dwelling where they spent the night of August 31 to September 1. The National Census Service will eliminate the double enumeration when the calculations are processed. This information is essential, not only as an element of criticism and control, but also for special studies.
Two situations are exceptions to the criterion adopted: family groups that have two dwellings, one of which serves as occasional residence (summer home, country house, etc.), in which case the family group will be enumerated in only one of the dwellings, and those that own two residences, part of the family group living in one dwelling and part in another (as is frequent among ranchers who have younger children studying in the city), who will be enumerated pursuant to the following criteria:
a) All the members of this family group will be enumerated at the dwelling where the majority of the members are present on the date of the Census, and each one will be recorded in Question B as either a present resident or an absent resident;

b) At the dwelling where the minority of the family group are present, only the persons present on the date of the Census will be enumerated, recording each of them in Question B as present nonresident.

1. Columns P1 to P14: The whole population
These columns are to be filled in for all the members of the household: residents and visitors.
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
- Spouse of the head of the household followed by his or her unmarried children beginning with the oldest.

Where the head of the household is a polygamist, each of his wives must be followed by her unmarried children beginning with the oldest, if they are members of the household.
- Married children of the head of the household or of his wife (wives) followed by their spouses.
- Relatives of the head of me household or of his spouse(s): ascendants (father, mother, grandparents), descendants (grandchildren, great grandchildren) whose parents are not members of the household; collaterals (brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, nephews, cousins)
- Persons not related to the head of the household or to his spouse(s): friends, lodgers, house servants, employees who are members of 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
If after such classification, the head of the household realizes that he has forgotten a resident member of the household, write down his name after the other resident members.
Once all the residents of the household have been listed, ask if there are visitors in the household. If so, also classify them as in the previous case.
After this inventory of the members, first fill in columns P1 to P5 for all the members and, as from column P6 fill in, line by line, the individual questions for each of them.


Column P4: Sex
For each member of the household, encircle the number corresponding to the sex. Encircle 1 for male or 2 for female.

Basic population information
Question 1 asks for the name of each person in the household so that no one is left out or counted twice. Names are not put on the census database.
Questions 2 to 6 ask about the people living in the household. From these questions we can learn about living arrangements, family size, the number of children living with one parent or two parents, and the number of people who are alone. This information is used for planning social programs, such as Old Age Security and the Child Tax Benefit. It is also used by towns and cities to plan a variety of services such as day-care centers, schools and senior citizens' homes.

Questionnaire section C: "household members who stayed last night"
Section C consists of two questions:

- Question 6.c, where all individual members of the household who stayed at the housing unit last night are listed.
- Question 6.d, which asks for and records the total number of persons mentioned in 6.c, broken down by sex.

To list the members of the household, you must first ascertain who is the head of household.
Who is the head of household?
The head of household is a member of the household, aged 15 years or over, who is recognized as such by the rest of the members.
Careful! If the person considered to be the head of household did not stay the night before in the housing unit and was or will be recorded elsewhere, a head of household must be chosen from among the persons who actually stayed the night in the housing unit.
To complete the list of household members in section C, it is important to identify the head of household, since the order in which each of the members is listed in question 6.c is determined by their relationship to the head of household.
Important: If the members of the household do not recognize a head of household, the first informant will be the one who must designate the head of household, and the relationships must be established with respect to this person.
[p. 25]
[Question 6.c, household roster]
This list will help you to organize the persons who you must record in order. Invite all persons in the housing unit who must be recorded to participate in the interview. This way, it will be easier for you to complete the questionnaire, and you will have fewer omissions.
Don't forget to include babies, girls, boys and elderly persons.
You must ask and write the full name, relationship with the head of household and sex of all members of the household. Always enter the head of household on the first line.
Remember that only one person can fill the role of head of household.
[Figure omitted, image of question 6.c from the questionnaire]
[Question 6.d, total number of persons]
Important: You must always ask the question and not perform the summation yourself, since this way we will corroborate whether all members of the household have been included.
Ask for and record the total number of persons who make up the household, the number of males, and the number of females. Remember to include babies, girls, boys, elderly persons and visitors who stayed at the housing unit the night before.
[Figure omitted, image of question 6.d from the questionnaire]
[p. 26]
Important: The information that you enter on question 6.d must be transferred to the C2 or C3 summary sheet after conducting all the interviews in the housing unit.
[Figure omitted, image of questions 6.c and 6.d]

Questionnaire section D: "Personal information"
Interview each member of the household using one page for each person. The order in which you must conduct the interviews is the same as you entered on question 6.c. Therefore, person No. 1 will correspond to the head of household, while person No. 2 will be the person you entered on the second row, and so forth.
It is very important that you follow the order as entered on question 6.c for conducting the interviews in section D. This way, you will avoid leaving someone out without being recorded for the census.

[Question 8, sex]
There are responses that seem obvious; however, you must ask the question anyway and record what the informant says in response.

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 19 Age

Age is the time length (day, month, or year) since birth up to the census date. In this column the correct age of each household member at the time of the population and housing census is filled in full years. Age in full years means age measures beyond year such as months, weeks, days re truncated and only the years are taken and registered. For example if a person's age is 15 years 5 months and 11 days, the age to register will be only 15 years and must not be 15 years 5 months and 11 days. If a child's age is below one year "00" will be entered in column 19 card columns 35-36. If on the other hand a person's age is 98 years and over, only "98" is entered in card column 35-36.

It is expected that there are people who do not know their correct ages or do not want to report their ages. Therefore it is required to make an effort as much as possible without giving up obtaining the correct age. In order to resolve these problems it is appropriate to focus on the following method which is one among others.

It is important to attempt to estimate the respondent's age with reference to historical event that took place at national level or in the neighborhood of the respondent's birth place and based on the response to questions by asking the respondent how old he/she was when the event took place or how long was his/her birth date after the event .For example if the person was born ten years before the eruption of the Ethiopian revolution, then his/her age in 1984 is more or less /1984 - 974/ + 10 = 20 years, and this will be entered. A person's age can be estimated by relating his/her birth year with historical events. For this purpose list of major historical events by year is provided for reference in appendix 1 of this manual.

Some of the household members or people livening in the neighborhood may not know their ages. This time their ages can be estimated in contrast with those who know their ages.
If the age of one of the household member is known correctly, it may be possible to estimate ages of the other members. For example if the age of the first child in the household is known to be 13, it is possible to estimate the mother's age as 29. This is because most of the time mothers are assumed to have their first child at the age of 16 and hence her age would be 13 + 16 = 29. A person's age within a group of people having blood relationship can be estimated by making comparison among them. For example, most of the time mothers give birth every two years. If one of her child is known to be 7 years old then his/her elder one can be 9. Sometimes old people report their age much higher. Their age can be estimated in comparison with the ages of their older children and grandchildren. Hence if one of the household member's age is known then age of other members has to be estimated in relation to the others.

Furthermore if a member's age is known when he got married, his current age can be estimated by considering the number of years he stayed in marriage and also in relation with his children's age.

There are people who prefer or get it easy to report their ages in numbers ending with zero or five. However they don't have to report in figures easy for them or in figures they want but need to try to get their exact ages. In fact ages of certain people can be 10, 15, 20, 25, etc.

Parents can remember birth dates of their children under the age of 10 and the children's age have to be recorded correctly in full years. When determining the child's age becomes difficult a lot of effort has to be made to arrive at the correct ages.

The correct age of each of the household members is entered in column 19 card columns 35-36 after determining their ages on the basis of the above discussion and by making the necessary effort, posing questions towards getting the right age and by making the necessary computation.

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 17: Sex
In this column, the sex of each member of the household, "m" for male and "f" for female, should be entered in the card column. The sex of a person should not be determined by guessing based on the name of the person because some names are used for both sexes. Additionally, great care should be taken while writing the members' sexes because, in some areas, males are named by females' name and females are named by males' name.

Question 5:- What is [the respondent]'s Sex?

In this question, the appropriate code of the sex of each member of the household according to their names listed in question 2 should be shaded. For example, if the member is male, code 1 should be shaded across the name of the member and if the member is female, code 2 should be shaded across the name of the member of the household. The codes of the sexes should not be shaded by guessing the sexes based on the names of the persons because the names of some persons use for box sexes. In addition to this, great care should be taken while shading the codes of the members' sexes because, in some areas, males are named by females' name and females are named by males' name.

If the homeless shelter has more than ten persons, use an additional form.

Section VII is designed to allow you to record the complete information about one person. Write the person's order number in the grid space according to the list in section V. Spell out completely the first names and complete surnames of each person.

3. Sex
Ask, "Are you a male or a female?" and then mark an X in the corresponding circle.

[A graphic of box 3, "sex," is reproduced on the right-hand side of the page.]

If the respondent (the leader, or person in charge of the group, etc.) answers for other residents of the homeless shelter verify that the information is correct because there are names that are given to both males and females. Examples include: Carmen, María, José, Concepción, Guadalupe, Tránsito, Inés, etc.

Question 3: Sex
64. The sex (masculine or feminine) of each person must be checked on the questionnaire.
You should not determine the person's sex according to his first name because some first names can be given to people of both sexes. So, it is important that each question be asked for each person.
Example: The first name "Claude" can very well be given to a boy or a girl. It is the same case for the first name "Karol".

Section F. Characteristics of the persons

On the heading of each page of this section write the names of the persons that make up this household one-by-one, maintaining the order established in 'composition of the household' (question 2, section D).

You will begin with head of household [male or female] as person number 1 and will continue with the rest of the members of the household.

Always ask about the spouse or partner of the head of household; never assume that he or she does not exist. Whenever possible, in the case where both are present, you will ask the questions of each person separately.

For all persons
[Questions 1-6 were asked of all persons]

Question 2: Sex
Mark the box that identifies the sex of the person. If the person who is being enumerated is not present, do not be guided by the name and ask the question, since it is frequent to find names that are used both for men as for women, for example: Carmen, Jesus, Guadalupe, Concepcion, Santos, Trinidad, María, etc.

Questions 01, 02 and 03 should be asked simultaneously. This should be done after all household members have been recorded. Subsequently, please continue to ask the 4th through 15th question to each of the household members

Question 01, 02 and 03: Name, relationship to the head of household, and sex
Question 01, 02 and 03 are asked simultaneously to all household members. Please ask all respondents in the household their relationship to the head of household. Please write down their names on the provided line of the first question, blackening [the oval] to match the person's relationship code for "Relationship to head of household" and "Sex".

Relationship to head of household
1. Household head is one of the household members who takes responsibility for the daily needs of the household, or could be the person who is assumed to be a head of household.
Head of household in a special household is an appointed person among the special household members.
2. Wife/husband is a wife/husband of the household's head.
3. Others include all persons who occupy and live in the household and are household members, among others:

a. Child in-law is the husband/wife of child, step child or adopted child in the household.
b. Grandchild is the child of the household head's child/step child/adopted child.
c. Parent is a father/mother of the household head.
d. Other relatives are individuals who are related to the head of the household or to the wife/husband of the head of the household. Example: younger or older sibling, uncle, aunt, grandfather/grandmother.
e. Domestic workers are people who are working as domestic servants and stay and sleep in the household where they are working, receiving salary/wages such as money and goods.
f. Others are people who are not related to the head of household.


The best procedure to interview the respondents is to ask for the name of each person in the household so that no one is left out or counted twice, starting from head of household and going through the wife/husband, unmarried child, married child, child in-law, grandchild, parents, mother/father in law, other relatives, domestic servant, and others.

Please make sure that all HOUSEHOLD members have been recorded completely with name and serial number by:
1. Reading one by one the name of each HOUSEHOLD member.
2. Ask questions to ensure there will be no one missed and unrecorded to probe for:
a. Child or newborn baby, anak kecil atau bayi yang baru lahir.
b. Others like a friend or housemaid who stays/lives in the household.
c. Visitors who live for fewer than 6 months and intend to stay for 6 months and more.
d. People who usually live in the HOUSEHOLD but have left for fewer than 6 months.


If you found other persons with the criteria stated above, please add those names to the list, subsequently asking questions 01-03. When those questions have been completed, please ask questions 4 through 15 for each HOUSEHOLD member in order according to the serial number of the HOUSEHOLD member.

3. Please ask additional questions to guarantee the data are correct and no persons have been excluded. Meanwhile, if there is a household member who left for at least 6 months and is being counted as a household member, take him/her out from the list of questions 01-03 and reorder the serial numbers of each HOUSEHOLD member.

Make sure all household members have been recorded, and separate the total number of household members by sex. Please write down the total number of household members into the appropriate box provided. If, when comparing the total with the 4th Block in columns (23) and (24) of SP2000-L1, the totals do not match, please fix them accordingly.

The SP2000-L2 Questionnaire has been designed for 8 people maximum. If more than 8 household members are found, please use an additional SP2000-L2 Questionnaire and copy the location identification exactly as the first [page of the] SP2000-L2 Questionnaire is recorded.

Questions 401 to 403: Name of the household member, relation to head of the household, and sex.
Ask Q 401 to 403 at the same time (this is noted by the bold vertical lines on Form SUPAS05-S). After all household members are listed, ask A 404 through Q 407 to each household member.

Relation to head of the household:

The head of the household is the member of the household who is responsible for the daily needs of the household or the member who is considered/appointed as head of the household because of his/her advanced age.
Wife/husband is spouse of the head of the household.
Child includes own child, stepchild and foster child (adoption) of the head of the household.
Daughter/son-in-law is the husband/wife of the head of the household's child.
Grandchild is the child of the head of the household's child.
Parents/parents-in-law are the father/mother of the head of the household or the father/mother of the spouse of the head of the household.
Other relatives are other people who are related to the head of the household or to the spouse of the head of the household, for example: sisters/brothers, cousins, other in-laws, nephews/nieces, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, grandmothers, etc.
Housemaid is someone who works as household help and lives in the household and receives a salary either in cash or kind.
[p. 64]
Others are those who live in the household but are not related to the head of the household or the spouse.

Explanation:

1. Family members who work as household help (receive a wage/salary) should be considered as "Housemaid" (code 8).
2. For drivers and gardeners who live in the household (eat and live in the household), the driver should be considered as "Other" (code 9) while the gardener is considered as "Housemaid" (code 8).
3. Children of the housemaid who work as housemaids (receive wage/salary) are considered as "Housemaid" (code 8). Children of the housemaid who do not work are considered as "Other" (code 9).

Write the name of each member of the household on the appropriate line in Column (2), his/her relation to the head of the household in Column (3) and his/her sex in Column (4). Begin with the head of the household, and continue with the spouse, unmarried children, married children, daughter/son-in-law, grandchildren, parents/parents-in-law, other relatives, housemaid, and others.

To ensure that all household members have been recorded:
1. Read the name of each household member one at a time.

2. Ask questions 1 to 4 at the bottom of the page to find out if anyone has been omitted, such as:
a. Small child or baby,
b. Others such as a friend or housemaid who normally live in the household,
c . Guests who have stayed in the household for 6 months or more,
d. Anyone else who normally lives in the household, but has been away for fewer than 6 months.

If the answer is "Yes", then place a check X in the "Yes" box, and write the names on the list beginning with the next serial number. After writing the name, cross out the X in the "Yes" box with two horizontal lines and put the X in the "No" box.

[p. 65]

3. Ask question 5 to check whether anyone whose name has been recorded has been away for 6 months or more or has been away for fewer than 6 months but intends to stay in the new location. If the answer is "Yes", place an X in the "Yes" box. After the name of that person has been crossed out with two horizontal lines, place an X in the "No" box and cross out the X in the "Yes" box.

4. Re-assign the serial numbers of the members of the household in Column (1) taking into consideration the entry in the column "Relation to the head of the household".

It is possible that the respondent objects that the question is asked again. Tell the respondent the truth; say "I'm very sorry; I am only confirming the prior answer to make sure there are no mistakes in recording the sex of the members of the household."

(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.

Question 3: Is [the respondent] male or female?
Sex is one of the most important questions as much analysis of data depends on respondent's sex. It also determines whether certain questions are to be answered or not. Tick the correct response box, i.e. either "1" for male or "2" for female.
If the person is around, you can observe the gender without necessarily asking the question, but avoid inferring the gender of the person from names as there are names used by both genders. In case the name is preceded by title, namely "Thao" and "Nang", sex of respondent can readily be determined.

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.

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.

3.5 Sex

The objective of this question is to know the composition of the population by sex. Here it is indispensable to have an answer.

[p. 87]

Sex is understood to be the biological condition that distinguishes people into men and women.

Circle the code according to the sex of the person questioned.

When asking for the sex of each person, ask it in an affirmative tone if the name does not allow room for doubt, but if it is a name that can be used for both men and women, then ask the question word for word. The same thing happens with cases of names that are not common and therefore, can correspond equally to a man or woman.

Some examples of common names for both sexes are: Guadalupe, Rosario, Inés, Asunción, Refugio, Concepción, Nazareth, Abigail, Jesús, Soledad, Cristian, Areli, etc.

Circle only one response.

Example:

Sonia is a woman, how old is she in completed years?

If the name is uncommon (Andarani, Yuritzi, Erubey, Eder, among others) of if it is used for both men and women (Guadalupe, Rosario, Ines, Asuncion, Refugio, Concepción, Soledad, or others), ask what the sex of the person is. For example: "Is Refugio a man or a woman?"

[p. 71]

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.]

If by the name of the person you can identify that it deals with a woman or a man, or if you are soliciting the informer's information, don't ask the question, only mention the name of the person and the sex that corresponds to them tied to the age question.

Example:
Sonia is a woman: "How old is she?"

Ask the sex of the person only if the name is uncommon like: Andárani, Yuritzi, Erubey, Éder, or if it is used for man or a woman like: Guadalupe, Rosario, Inés, Asunción, Refugio, Soledad, among others.

Part 2: For all Members of the Household

Question 4: Sex

113. Ask "what is the sex of [the respondent]? This must be done for each household member. Then mark "1" if male or "2" if female. It is always important to ask about the sex of a person even where this may be obvious. All persons must be classified by sex. Be sure to ask the sex of all persons who are not visible to you since there may be names that can refer to either sex.

114. Check that the sex is compatible with relationship and name; do not assign "female" to persons shown as "spouse" when the head is a female and vice-versa. Also, take particular attention to mark 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 are strictly forbidden.

Column 3: What is ___ sex?
[] 1 Male

The sex of the person being counted should be separated as male or female. During the census, while counting the person in front of you, whether the person is male or female can be separated and written. Whether male or female, some can be easily separated even through their names. But there are many names that are used by both males and females. For small children, infants and babies, the head of the household should be asked to find out whether the person is male or female. To separate the person being counted as either male or female, code "1" should be marked to specify male and "2" should be marked to specify female. If the sex is indistinguishable, then whichever sex is stated by the respondent should be marked.

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 4: what is the sex of [the respondent]?

[] 1 Male
[] 2 Female

In this column, determine the biological sex of each person and circle the reference number 1 if they are male and reference number 2 if they are female. The sex of each enumerated person whether they are male and female should be identified. If the person enumerated is in front of you, you can identify the sex easily and write down. From the name of some persons, you can also easily identify whether the person is male or female. However, some names are used by both male and female. Similarly, ask the respondent to identify whether the small children are male or female. If it is difficult to identify the person whether he/she is male or female, write the sex what the respondent instruct to indicate.

P6 Sex

Sex holds a position of prime importance in demographic studies. Separate data for males and females are important in themselves, for the analysis of other types of data, and for the evaluation of the completeness and accuracy of the census counts of population.

The sex of each household member can usually be determined by his name or relationship to the head, hence, in most cases there would be no need to ask the respondent whether the person is male or female. However, some names such as Chito, Cielito, Loreto, Trinidad, Dakila, Resurreccion, Rosario, Joey, Regine, Gene (Jean), etc., could be those of male or female persons. When the name is common to both sexes, ask: "Is ________ male or female?"

Encircle 1 for Male and 2 for Female.

Encircle only the code corresponding to the given response.

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. Blank is strictly forbidden.

Note: If you see well the sex of the respondent no reason to ask him/her the sex unless you have confusion.

B. Questions for all the people
This part involves all people who slept in the household the night before census day. The questions in this part are also found in the short questionnaire.
The questions in this part must be asked to every person following the order set. You must follow the flow of questions as arranged and read the question as written in the questionnaire. For more explanation, refer explanations in part 3.7 (how to ask questions).
Part "B" of the questionnaire contains the following questions:


Questions 1-4: Person number, name, relationship, and gender
The first step in filling this part is getting the list of all people who slept in the household the night before Census day and their relationship to the head of the household. It is better if you list the names in the order explained below to get the real situation of the household. You must list starting with the head of the household and shade in the space provided, then other members of the household who slept in the household the night before Census day. If there are more than six people, indicate in the space provided that extra questionnaires are used. After listing all the household members, continue interviewing the head of the household the remaining questions using the first questionnaire.
In order for you to get a correct list of all people in the household, you must know the meaning of a household.
For Census objectives, household is a person or people who live together and eat together. This is not the same as family. A family is for people who are related but household is people who live and eat together, even when they are not related. For example, three people who are not blood related (example, friends) but live and eat together; they will be regarded as a household although they are not a family.
At times it is difficult to know who is to be included in the household and who is to be left out. The following examples elaborate this situation:

  • A man who has two wives who live in different places. Although the man will claim to live in both houses he will be enumerated in the house he slept the night before the census day.
  • It is possible that a woman who said that the husband is the head of the household and later realized that he did not sleep in the house the night before census day though he lives there. If the husband did not sleep in the household the night before census day, he will not be listed in that household. Therefore, the wife will be the head of the household, for census purposes.

[p. 24]
  • Sometimes, a person may be eating in one household and sleeping in another. This person will be listed in the household he slept in the night before census day.
  • A person who lives alone will be listed in a private household of his own.
  • A house maid: she/he will be listed in the household she/he slept in the night before census day.

Note: every person listed in the household must have slept in that household the night before census day.
When the respondent is listing the names of members of the household, write those names in column 2 of the Census questionnaire: [write] one person's full name in each line.


Shade the code which matches the gender of the person being interviewed. The codes used for this question are as follows:
Sex

[] 1 Male
[] 2 Female

[Illustration for question 4 is omitted]
Be careful when shading the sex of young children. It happens most of the time that is not easy to know the sex of an infant. Therefore, you must ask about the sex, don't assume. Don't fill the sex of a person using the name because some names are used by both men and women.

3.0 General explanations of census questions

In the 2012 population and housing census, there will be three types of questionnaires which will comprise questions based on the information required to be collected. There will be a community questionnaire with five major sections which will be used in all the areas where census is taking place and will be filled in by the census enumerator three days before census day. The community questionnaire will collect information on community services such as schools, hospitals, health centers, markets, financial services, cattle dip [places for washing livestock], sources of water, environment, and events/incidences that occurred in communities in the past one year that were troublesome/disturbing, and catastrophic events that took place in the past five years.
The short questionnaire will have 37 questions and the long questionnaire will have 62 questions. In areas where the short questionnaire will be use, the long questionnaire will not be used, and in places where the long questionnaire will be used, the short questionnaire will not be used. 70 percent of the census areas will use a short questionnaire and the remaining percentage will use the long questionnaire. All the questions found in the short questionnaire are also found in the long questionnaire; therefore, these questions will be answered by everyone wherever either questionnaire is used. These questions will ask about the name of the head of the household; names of all the people who slept in the respective house the night before August 26th, 2012, and the relationships of these people to the head of the household.
Other questions that follow ask about sex, age, disability status, marital status, citizenship and place of residence, place where the household member spends most of his/her time, and whether or not the household member has a birth certificate. Other questions will focus on general and reproduction-related death in the household; agricultural questions; number of livestock and fish keeping; education for people with ages of four and above; getting the number of households with at least one household member who has social security fund membership; and Tanzanians who live in foreign countries.
For those who will be asked questions from the long questionnaire, they'll be required to answer extra questions which will ask about the following; place of birth, place lived in 2011, whether or not parents are alive, economic activities for people who are five years and above, child-bearing status for women aged 12 and above, and on house characteristics and asset/property ownership.
All these questions aim at meeting the various current and future needs of the nation for planning and implementation purposes of various development programs. Therefore, we ask that everyone needs to understand and pay attention to all the questions so that they can answer them correctly.

G. Information of the people
169. Once the Section "F. Information of the home" is finished, you should ask the population questions to each one of the people who you are to enumerate.

When possible, you should try to make each person provide you with their own information. Only in the case of a person who is absent at the time of your visit, or if it concerns children, will you receive their information from a third party.

In each home, you will enumerate all people who slept in it the night before the "Day of the Census" or who, being absent this night for reasons of work, return to the home during the day. In such form, a doctor who did not sleep in his/her house because of being on guard in a hospital will be enumerated in their home. On the contrary, a traveler who spent many days away from their home will be enumerated in the place slept in during the night before the "Day of the Census."


I. General characteristics of all people
The questions included in this chapter are for knowing the distribution of the population by sex, age and civil state; their territorial distribution and movements made within the country in the last 5 years.

You should ask the questions in this chapter to all people who are to be enumerated in the home.


To mark the sex, do not be guided by the name of the person: always ask the question as it is in the Census document. In the previous example, the names of Nery and René can be vaguely used to determine a man or a woman, which makes it indispensable to ask the question.

For question no. 3, "Are you man or woman?", you should mark the box corresponding to the sex of the enumerated person.

Never think that by having written the name of a person, it is not necessary to mark "Man" or "Woman". Always register if man or woman, or male or female, in the case of children and little babies.

Do not be guided by the name of a person: always ask the question as it is written in the Census document.

Question 3: Is [the respondent] male or female?
For household members who are directly interviewed, or present at home during the time the enumerator is interviewing the household head or his/her representative, it is easy to define whether each of them is male or female and hence mark the appropriate small box. However, for small children and persons absent from home, the enumerator is not allowed to use their "middle name" to guess their sex, but have to ask the household head.

Section B: For all Persons
Begin by saying, "I would like information on ALL people who stayed at this household on the census night. This information is on the names of the persons, their relationship to head of household, their age and sex, survivorship of their parents etc. It is important that you give me as accurate information as possible about each person".

Q3 Sex
If the person is around, you can observe the sex without necessarily asking the question but avoid inferring the sex of the person from names as there are unisex names i.e. names used by both sex like Chipo, Tapiwa, Blessing, Taurai, Sipho, Nhlanhla, etc.

Check the information provided for babies and infants and preferably from the mothers. You will not know the sex of a baby carried on its mother's back in which case you have to probe further and not guess.

Ensure that the spouse's sex is compatible with the relationship to the head of household.
