The Enumeration Area

1. You as an enumerator will be assigned an enumeration area in which you will do the enumeration work for the Census. Your supervisor will assign this area to you and will also provide you with a map or a sketch showing boundaries of your enumeration area and explain major features of this area in order for you to properly identify the boundaries.

2. Your supervisor will take you around your enumeration area and instruct you with regard to the order in which you will carry out the enumeration. He will specify the order in which the villages should be visited in the rural areas or the streets to be covered in the urban areas. For you to cover your area in an orderly manner you must follow these instructions carefully.

3. Since the co-operation of the people is an essential factor in the success of the Census, your supervisor will introduce you to the local, traditional and Party leaders and other influential persons in the area to solicit their co-operation.

The number will be in three digits starting with 001, followed by 002, 003 and so on. No two buildings in your enumeration area will have the same 'Census Building Number'. This number will be different from other types of numbers the building may already have, such as house number, plot number, stand number, flat number, etc. The idea is to make sure that all the buildings, and thus housing units, in your area have been covered. This will help you, your supervisor, and anybody else who will be interested in checking on your progress and completeness of coverage. Enter the number in boxes 10 - 12.

Housing Unit Number (HUN) (Item 7)
10. Each housing unit will be given a house number within the building. This number will be in two digits.

Household Number (HHN): (Item 8)
11. Each household within a housing unit will be given a one-digit serial number - 1,2,3, etc. If the housing unit is vacant then write `O'against the household number.

Residential Address: (Item 10)
13. Residential Address is the information that describes the place in such a manner that a person may be able to reach it by this reference. This will include the name or number of street and the location of this particular building on this street.

If the name given is different or does not appear on the list, probe to find out if there has been any change in the names. If there has not been any, inform your supervisor about. it.

15. Census maps do not show the boundaries of chiefs' areas, therefore for the Central Statistical Office to correctly allocate people according to "Chiefs' Areas", you should be very careful when getting this information. Enter the appropriate code from Appendix 2 in boxes 16 - 18.

Ward: (Item 12)
16. A ward is a political delineation of an area. There may be more than one locality in one ward. The map you are using does not contain ward boundaries, the respondent will tell you the name of the ward in which his housing unit is located. In case he does not know, the 'party chairman- in the area will tell you. Your area might overlap wards, so you should not take it for granted that all the households you are covering should report the same ward. You should first ask before writing this in the space provided. Enter the appropriate codes as they appear in Appendix 9 in boxes 19 - 20.

Institutions/Collective Quarters: (Item 13)
