Statistics CENSE

Methodological note

The population scope in the 2011 Building Censusconsists of all buildings in the territory (regardless of their principal use) that are fully constructed and contain some type of dwelling, with the listing of properties that are located there. That is, it does not include buildings that contain no dwellings. This is the main difference between previous censuses. The 2011 Building Census is limited to buildings that contain some type of dwelling, and does not provide information on other buildings. Previous censuses excluded buildings used for strictly agricultural or livestock purposes. This Census also excludes buildings, regardless of use, that contain no dwellings whatsoever.

There was no registry of buildings that, having been totally or partially demolished, were being rebuilt and had no roof as of the census date.

Therefore, the following are also excluded:

  • Buildings being demolished, or considered dilapidated when vacated.
  • Constructions located in squares, on the pavement or in recreational areas intended for the sale of beverages, tobacco, newspapers, etc.
  • Buildings strictly intended for agricultural production and, therefore, not simultaneously being used as a family or group dwelling, or for activities other than agricultural production.

Degree of conservation

This variable establishes the state of conservation of the building, complementing the information provided with a variable for years of construction. Thus it is assigned a value for:

  • Dilapidated, if the building is found in one of the following circumstances: it is being shored up, pending official declaration of ruin or has been officially declared as a ruin.
  • Poor, if the building is found in one or more of the following circumstances: there is severe cracking or bulging in one of its façades; there is sagging or drooping in the ceilings or floors; or the building foundation has noticeably given way (for example, the stair treads are noticeably slanted).
  • Deficient, if the building has one of the following circumstances: the rain or sewer drainpipes are in poor conditions; there is damp at the base of the building or the roof has leaks.
  • Good, if the building has none of the circumstances indicated for dilapidated, poor or deficient status.
