Questions P1 and P2: Name and Relationship
Ask, "Who is the Head of this Household?"
75. Record the name of this person whether or not this person spent the census night in the Household.
76. Ask, "Who stayed here on the Census Night?"
77. It is important that you list the names in a set order so that you have a clear picture of the composition of the Household from the very beginning.
78. List members of the Household by family. You are required to record two names per person i.e. the surname/maiden name in the top portion of the row, and first/other name in the lower portion. In case of married women and other females, their maiden name should be recorded. For persons with more than two names, record only two names as specified above. Do not write nicknames.
79. At the same time as you write names on line 'P1', enter the relationship on line 'P2'. This information is likely to be provided concurrently.
80. Start with the head whether he/she stayed in the Household on the Census Night or not. If he/she stayed in the Household on the census night, his/her code for relationship will be '11". If he was absent, then his relationship code will be '10'. Then list other Household members who spent the Census Night in the Household in this order:
1. The spouse and unmarried children, beginning with the eldest and working down to the youngest. If a man has more than one wife and if all live and eat together, list each wife and her unmarried children in turn. (If they live and eat separately, treat each wife as having a separate Household as already explained).
2. Then enter married children and their spouses and children who spent census night in the Household.
3. Then list other relatives and their wives and children who were in the Household on census night.
4. Finally list those who are not related to the head or anyone else who spent census night with the Household e.g. some Household members are not necessarily related to the Household head but are living with him, use code '18' for persons who are not related.
81. Infants and young children are sometimes forgotten. Pay particular attention to getting all babies counted. In the event that the infant has only one name, write the name in the appropriate row and put a '-' in the second row. If the child has no name at all, write no names in the row for surname and put a '-' in the second row.
82. Remember to inquire about and to include persons on night duty, bed ridden persons and those temporarily away from the Household for such purposes as getting water or firewood or visiting a trading centre, school or hospital. Do not include members of the Household who were admitted to hospital on the census night, but include their caretakers who were away on the Census Night. 83. When you have written the names of all who were in the Household on census night and their relationship with the head, read the list to the Household members to find out whether everyone has been included. You must be sure that everyone who was present in the Household on the Census Night is included.
84. When a man and woman live together, although not legally married, you should treat them as husband and wife if they regard themselves as such.
85. Where several persons who are not related are living in a Household, name one (who slept in the Household on the Census Night) as the Household Head and give him/her code '11' using the code list and describe the rest as non-relatives and give them code '18'.
86. The children born after the Census Night will not be included. However, persons who were in the Household on the Census Night but died before the interview should be included. Only ask questions on Name, Relationship, Sex and Age (Questions P1, P2, P3 and P5).
87. For institutional, homeless or floating population, allocate them code '18' for non-relative.
