21. Does this household have [the following appliances]?

By determining the possession (or lack) of certain electrical household appliances, it is possible to classify the household in terms of features and comfort. Similarly, it serves as a way to check the declared income.

In order to be considered possessions, the appliances must be in working order.

Complementing the list of appliances are means of communication and locomotion (without considering animal-drawn vehicles or bicycles) that allows the identification of special situations.

Within the means of communication, the landline and the cellular phone are included.

The refrigerator refers to the cooling unit, whether or not it has a freezer. The item freezer refers to the possession of the apparatus that only freezes (and is not incorporated to a refrigerator).

Automobiles should be of private use and it must work (with the exception of momentary breakage) in order to be considered. On the other hand, vehicles that are used only for working (taxis, delivery trucks) will not be considered; that's to say only take into consideration those of family use or those that, in addition to work purposes, are alsos used for private purposes.

[p. 33]

In the case of color TV, computer or laptop, cellular phone, automobile, or truck and motorcycle you must indicate the quantity of units. In the case of the telephone, keep in mind that the number of telephone lines (and not the number of apparatuses) is solicited.

It's important to clarify that a code must always be circled: those that are not marked will be considered as an error of the interviewer. While you should not assume the absence of items, act with tact and discretion in the consultation. In a precarious dwelling where there is not electricity, for example, it is unlikely that the household will possess many of the listed items.
