Brackers kick off Census 2010

The official launch of Cayman Brac
and Little Cayman’s Census 2010 publicity campaign took place on the grounds of
the District Administration building Thursday.

The census will provide valuable
insight to whether public services are in line with the population, Acting
Premier Juliana O’Connor-Connolly said.

Speakers also emphasised that
everyone is important when it comes to the census, which begins on 10 October,
and urged all in the Sister Islands to provide accurate details to census

Cayman lacks detailed population
demographics and statistics, which hinders proper planning for the Islands’
future, the speakers stressed. Census 2010 will provide this baseline data for
the first time.

The celebration featured colourful
balloons, bright T-shirts, banners and a video presentation by GIS Marketing
and Communications that outlined the value of the national census. Brackers
also enjoyed the official Census 2010 jingle performed by Cayman Brac High
School students and ESO staff.

Following the event, several
attendees signed up, hoping to work as one of the 15-20 census enumerators
required to cover the Sister Islands.
