A. Identification
This section is meant to identify each Census document. Filling it out will be done in stages.

I) Before beginning your route transfer the information from the sleeve of your folder to each of the Census documents, in the following way:

Transfer the identification numbers in the established order:

  • Department
  • Census section
  • Segment
  • Zone

Order No. of the enumerator within a zone
Write down the name and the category of the locality and its codes.

In number 7 ("Area") mark with a cross the same box that is marked in the sleeve of your folder.

If you marked urban, cross out item 8 since it is only for rural areas.

II) Before beginning every interview, complete the rest of the identification of the Census document in the following way.

Number the dwellings consecutively, beginning with "01", writing down the same number for each one on the control sheet.

Number the documents consecutively, beginning with "01" according to the number that you put in the control sheet.

[p. 15]

Write down the address of a dwelling.

The address should identify a dwelling in such a manner that it is distinguished from any other dwelling or place.

If a dwelling does not have a street number, or is not on a street, road or highway, some fixed point that serves as a reference should be mentioned (a close intersection of streets or routes, distance to a street, route, railroad, geographic feature and in general, any other point of reference that is permanent).

The address of a document should coincide with what is put down on the control sheet.

If your zone is a rural area, you should, then, ask the head of household:

Is the piece of land where this dwelling is found involved in agricultural and livestock production? (number 8)

If a head responds yes, ask: "Does it measure less than a hectare?"

If a response is affirmative, mark box "1", if it is negative, mark box "2" (measures one or more hectare).

If a piece of land is not involved in agricultural or livestock production, mark box "3".
