sample design and community establishments
I'm trying to establish if residents in communal accommodation are sampled in US. I've read the user guide and technical notes which refer to samples being taken of 'residential' addresses using the PAF. Do such residential addresses include residents in communal establishments like nursing homes, student halls of residence, etc.?
I notice that communal establishments/institutions are considered ineligible from the technical notes. In this case what constitutes a communal establishment? Does this mean residents in nursing homes etc are ineligible, or does such an establishment refer to non-residential establishments, e.g. guest houses, hotels, etc.?
Sorry if my question appears confused. I'm simply trying to find out exactly what is included in a 'residential' address so I can match US to appropriate census records which includes residents of nursing homes, student halls, prisons etc. I suspect it refers only to private households but just want to confirm.
