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.
Here you must classify relevant economic activities into one of four categories Not all activities will be coded -- just those activities where more information is required (in Parts B - E). Note that most of the codes in Question 1 map directly into the four categories.
If an activity has been coded as “1” (OWN-FARM ACTIVITIES), leave all columns blank
If an activity has been coded as “2” (CASUAL LABOR) write a “1” in column 2B.
If an activity has been coded as “3” (LONG-TERM AGRICULTURE LABORER) write a “1” in column 2C.
If an activity as been coded as “4” (SALARIED EMPLOYMENT) write a “1” in column 2D.
If an activity has been coded as “5” or “6” (PETTY BUSINESS/ TRADE/MANUFACTURING or MAJOR BUSINESS/TRADE/MANUFACTURING) and the respondent identifies himself or herself as the primary person in the household in charge of the enterprise, write a “1” in column 2E. Note that there should only be one row filled out in Part E for each enterprise.
If an activity has been coded as “7” (JAJMANI SERVICES) and the respondent claims to receive some form of cash or in-kind compensation for the service, write a “1” in column 2E.
If an activity has been coded as “8” (COLLECTING/FORAGING) and the respondent claims to have sold, traded, or bartered at least some of whatever was collected or foraged, write a “1” in column 2E. (For example, if the respondent collects firewood for household use, leave all columns blank. But is the respondent collected some wood to sell, then code a “1” in column 2E)
Leave the four columns blank for all other activities.
