D. Employment: For people of age five and above
This part has five questions (question 16-20) which have to be answered by people of age 5 and above. For census purposes, a job is any economic activity, either if you get paid, make profit, do barter trade, or for domestic use. Housework is not regarded as a job except looking for firewood and fetching water from a source which is far from the respondent's living place. Housework includes laundry works, cleaning, cooking, etc. The housework mentioned above will be considered as economic activities if they are paid for. A house maid doing these works should be considered as employed.

Question 20: What is the main activity in your place of work?
This question aims at main activity at the place of work and not the work done by the respondent in the place of work. People who answer the question must have worked in that place for at least seven days. For example, an accountant employed by a beer company will use code "4" and not code "11", but if he/she works for the government meaning he/she is providing services then will use code "11".
