www.statistik.atslide Nr. | September 28, 20137Proposed changesTopics (III)List of core topics remains unchanged except the proposed move of location of living quarters to the chapter on geographic characteristics (old para 626). However, we should reconsider the textSince living quarters other than mobile housing units are permanently located in the area in which they are enumerated, it is possible to classify them to the detailed geographical area, but the extent to which this is done will vary according to each countrys needs for statistics for localities and the smallest civil divisions relevant. The definitions and classifications set out in paragraph 181-188 above apply equally to this topic as to the place of usual residence core topic.

www.statistik.atslide Nr. | September 28, 20138Proposed changesTopics (III)Proposal to drop the non-core topic Cooking facilities. It is not very specific and relates to more than one dimension in addition to the topic kitchen, some countries may wish to know what kind of equipment is used for cooking (stove, hot plate, fireplace, etc.), what other kinds of equipment are available (for example sink etc.) an whether electricity, gas, oil, coal, wood or some other fuel is used for cooking. Some of these items relate to the dwellings and others to the household.

Some countries may prefer to define permanence in terms of the method of construction or in terms of the building materials used. P&R: the limit is 15 years A permanent building is understood to be a structure not intended to be moved and that may be expected to maintain its stability for 15 years or more, depending on the way countries define durability.
