Interviewer instructions
Questions 5P - 7P. are to be completed for households.
Before completing questions 5P - 7P, in a special box of the line "No. of the first member of the household within the dwelling" the serial number is to be entered, under which the person recorded first in the household is specified in column 1 of section 1 of the list of residents in the dwelling. In accordance with the example given on page 10, the following numbers of "the first members of households within the dwelling" are to be inserted: for Tikhonov's household -- No. 1, for Rulev's household -- No. 3, for Bulgakhov's household -- No. 4.
Question 7P. Floor space (sq. m)
The size of useful and living space is to be recorded here.
The space is to be recorded in integer numbers of square metres without decimal digits. The records are to be done in numbers (e.g., 9, 27, 103) in a special box.
To round a fractional space to the integer number, the following rules are to be observed: if there is five tenths and more after the decimal sign, then one is to be added to the integer part, if less than five tenths, then the fractional part is to be discarded. (e.g., numbers 23.50; 23.51 are to be rounded to 24, but 23.49 to 23).
Useful floor space in a detached house, separated or shared flat is determined as the sum of floor areas of all habitable rooms (including heated and appropriate for habitation attics, verandahs, terraces) and back rooms (kitchens, halls, anterooms, indoor corridors, bath (shower) rooms, toilets, pantries or built-in closets). Herewith in shared flats the useful space of the whole flat is to be conventionally recorded only for one household, which is specified first within this flat. For other households sharing the flat the useful space is not to be recorded (only the living space occupied by the household is subject to recording).
Useful floor space falling on residents in a hostel is measured as the sum of the living space occupied by a household and its share of the back rooms space of the hostel. This part is calculated for one person by dividing the whole space of backrooms of the hostel by the number of beds. E.g., the floor space of backrooms in the hostel is 500 sq. m. and the number of beds is 100. In this case 5 sq. m. of the backroom space fall on one person. The useful floor space for the service staff living in institutions is to be calculated similarly.
The useful floor space does not include:
- staircases, porches, lift lobbies, vestibules, corridors (excluding inner corridors), entrance halls;
- scarcements, and heating furnaces;
- unheated rooms (terraces, verandahs, balconies, loggias, attics, mezzanines);
- detached summer kitchens, bathhouses, sheds, pavilions, etc.
Living floor space includes the space of all habitable rooms occupied by a household excluding the space of built-in closets.
If a household occupies part of the room, the space of this part is to be recorded (e.g., if the room is 24 sq. m in area and is occupied by two households consisting of 1 person and two persons, then 8 sq. m and 16 sq. m fall on each household respectively).
The living space of the service staff living in boarding houses for the aged and invalids, children's homes and similar institutions is to be determined in a similar way.
If a household gives part of the space in rent, the total space, both useful and living, including that rented, is to be recorded for it.
