The enumerator will mark an X in the following cases:
Single family group - when persons living in a private dwelling constitute a single family group;

a) Question A (Type of family group) will be filled out on the census forms of all family groups in multiple family households [grupo familiar convivente]
b) the enumerator will fill out the other questions on only one of the census forms referring to the multiple family households [Grupo familiar convivente]
c) this information placed on only one of the census forms will refer to the data of all the multiple family households [Grupos familiares conviventes]
Family group residing in collective dwelling - when filling out the census form of any family group enumerated in a collective dwelling; in this case the enumerator will not record anything for the other questions.
This variable indicates the type of family group, such as single family group, family group residing in collective dwelling, etc.
