1.2.1. Questions for ALL Household Members
8. Column P8: Place of birth, district or country
This question aims at recording the place of birth of household members. For this, the census enumerator will ask a question to the household head, such: "Where was name born?"
a) The census enumerator will write down the name of the province of birth, if the person was born in Mali. But, be careful: when a respondent give you as place of birth the name of a village or town, make sure to first find out the administrative province in Mali to which this place belongs, before writing the answer.
N.B.: If the person ignores the province, and if you cannot find it by yourself, write down the name of the region.
b) When the person is born abroad, that is outside of Mali, write down the name of the country of birth (Senegal, Gambia, Guinea, France, etc.).
Mamadou Diarra was born in the village of Toyoge - district of Taga - Province of Djenne - Region of Mopti. The place of birth will be "Djenne", and will be written in Column P8.
