Question 401: Type of Largest Floor Area
Observe the floor or the covering/foundation/base of the building of the respondent's dwelling and determine the type of floor. If only a small portion can be observed, ask the respondent if the remainder of the floor which cannot be observed is the same as the type which can be observed. If there are different types of flooring, record the one with the largest area. If the building has more than one level, then determine the largest area of all the levels.
Put a mark beside the type of floor of the largest floor area of the dwelling occupied by the household; mark only one type of flooring. The categories of floor types consist of: ceramic/marble/granite, tiles/terrazzo, cement, bricks, wood/board, bamboo, dirt/earth, and others. A tile floor which has been covered with vinyl or carpet is still recorded as tile.
In some areas floors from marble/ceramic/granite, tile//terrazzo, or cement, are all referred to as "tile". Thus, the enumerator must be careful. Use the categories for floor type in Form C1.
This variable indicates the primary floor material of the dwelling that the household occupies.
