Technical Notes


 
Institutional living quarter - The place of abode of an institutional population is not called a housing unit but is referred to as an institutional living quarter (ILQ). An ILQ is a structurally separate and independent place of abode intended for habitation by large groups of individuals (10 persons or more). Each quarter usually has certain common facilities, such as kitchen and dining rooms, toilet and bath, and lounging areas, which are shared by the occupants.
 
Institutional population - Comprises of persons who are found living in ILQs. They may have their own families or households elsewhere but at the time of census, they are committed or confined in institutions. In ILQs, they are usually subject to a common authority or management, or are bound by either a common public objective or personal interest.
 
Residence Status - Refers to the residence position or status of a person in the ILQ.
 
"The 2015 Census of Population (POPCEN 2015) was undertaken by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) in August 2015 as mandated by Republic Act No. 10625, otherwise known as the Philippine Statistics Act of 2013. It was the 14th census of population that was undertaken since the first census in 1903. POPCEN 2015 was designed to take an inventory of the total population all over the Philippines and collect information about their characteristics. Census day for the POPCEN 2015 was August 1, 2015 (12:01 a.m.). POPCEN 2015 made use of the de jure concept of enumeration wherein households and persons are enumerated in the area where they usually reside as of the census reference date. Enumeration lasted for about 25 days from 10 August to 6 September 2015. Enumeration was extended until 15 September 2015 for large provinces and some highly urbanized cities."
