“We are urging all interested persons to come, listen and sign up for a chance to be chosen as a census worker,” Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) Director, Mr. Adolphus Laidlow said.
Attendees will learn about the criteria to qualify to be census workers. These include having a high school diploma or higher, a current driver’s licence, and use of reliable transportation. Census workers must also be discreet and honest.
Persons who have already signed up are also asked to attend. The approximately 420 census workers selected will join the team conducting the national population and housing count that begins on 10 October this year, the Director explained.
Those selected will undergo training over several weeks to become either enumerators or supervisors in the different districts.
