Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
ALWAYS START the name with the person's FIRST name.
The person listed in the FIRST ROW should always be the HEAD of the household. If the respondent to the questionnaire is not the head of the household, you should still list the head of the household first row (not the respondent). The household head is the person identified by the respondent as the household head. He/she is the person who is named in reply to the question “who is the head of this household”.
The process of listing household members should be done carefully to ensure that no one is missed. All people who usually eat and sleep in the dwelling are considered to be household members. To ensure complete coverage, the interviewer should explicitly ask about three types of persons which are commonly overlooked by survey respondents:
1) Persons who are temporarily absent; they should be included. Do NOT include children at borading schools.
2) Servants makubaliano
3) Infants or small children are often overlooked.
Children who don’t reside in the household (Example, living with relatives), should not be registered as household members even if their parents live in the respective household.
Often, members have the same family name. Therefore, to ease your job, we added the tool that double clicking this field will copy the name of the previously listed member. You then only need to change the first name of that person.
Also, you do not need to enter capital letters for the names, the software will do this automatically.
