Personal Demographic Information:
What's your name? your wife's name? howmany kids? grandpa, and grandma still alive? Who's the breadwinner? Your age, kids age, grandpa's age? Howmany females/males in the family

Ethnic/Tribal Information:
Which subclan? Clan? Tribe? Councillor? tribal war in the last 20 years? with which tribe? why (or what the cause was)? Howmany killed? Howmany still survive?

Service Information:
Where's the nearest hospital? school? Church? Shopping area? vegetable market? Nearest service port like road junction, landing field, etc. How often do government agencies visit and when was the last time visited? Any means of public communication (or just shouting from the hilltop / hearsay, grapevine at different gatherings) ? Do you market your produce? How often do you go out to town (Wabag, Mt. Hagen, etc.)?

Just some info I thought would be valuable understanding the different lifestyles of people living within Enga.

objectives of the data collection project determine the type of data that need to be collected. population censensus would required you to collect some specific details as mentioned by you. (there would be more exciting data but it is essential to keep to your requirements) for instance, detail of deceased not needed, hair and eye color not needed. age needed, need to know what percentage of the population would be in 50s after ten years, etc.

appropriateness and good code of conduct is needed. it is evident to ask people the day of days the clinic opens, how many children in a family attend some form of education. it would not be quite essential to ask how many times a Wake father goes to wabag town given the cost and all the considerations(he would be hurt and it is sad to get such a obvious answer from him). i note that some degree of appropriateness and good code of conduct should prevail. it is essential that all the essential data need to serve a purpose be collected. when need arise, the next visit can be planned.

however, the provincial statistical office should collect these most essential data; population, service, geograhical etc. these data readily available for planning googs and service delievery to the districts(rural population).
