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.
The serial number of the person recorded in column (1) of block 4, schedule 18.1 from whom the bulk of the information is collected will be entered. Information is to be collected from members of the household. Sometimes some persons although not a member of the household may give correct information e.g. head of the household who is staying away from home for his job/business. In some other cases, due to practical difficulty, the informant may not strictly be a member of the household and collection of information from such informants may be justified. In all such cases, code '99' is to be reported against this item. However, if during the second visit information is not collected from the person who supplied information in the first visit, '99' will be recorded.
