How much has your household spent on your education in the last 12 months for the following items:
h. purchase or rental of textbooks?
If no expenditure, record 0;
If can remember all details, write in the appropriate columns, don't write in the total column. If can remember the total, and a few details, record the total, and the items you remember. Columns you can't remember record KB.
Sometimes the respondent finds it difficult to remember expenditures in the last 12
months. In such a case, the interviewer can help them recall by reminding them of the time when32
expenditures are usually made, expenditure items and amount of expenditures. For example,
expenditure for books, notebooks at the beginning of the school year are very expensive and
often remembered, monthly education fees, extra-class fees. If the respondent can only remember
the total without recalling the details of the expenditure, record the total in column 2l. If she/he
can recall some details and the total, record details remembered in the respective detailed column
and record the total, and if don’t know, record “KB”.
Expenditure for the purchase of motorbike, bicycle tubes for pupils is not recorded here.
If a pupil has to pay vehicle guarding fee when going to school, the interviewer should record
this as other expenditure in section 2 since this expenditure is related to school attendance of this
person. If students have to pay this vehicle guard fees elsewhere not related to his school
attendance, record it in section 12.
Information on “body” insurance bought by pupils should be recorded in this section not
in section 3. If a respondent knows the amount paid for pupil health insurance and “body”
insurance, record health insurance to section 3 and body insurance to section 2. If respondent
knows the amount paid was for purchasing both body insurance and health insurance, without
being split, record to section 3.
Note on regulations for recording to columns: Column 2L Total must always have data
either 0, or other than 0 if attending school in the last 12 months. Other columns, from 22A to
22H can be recorded figures other than zero, zero, or KB
