Census workers needed

People
who want to help with Census 2010 are invited to attend public information
meetings starting on Thursday from 5.30pm to 7pm.

On
Grand Cayman, the meetings will be held in: West Bay on Thursday at the John A.
Cumber School Hall; George Town, Tuesday, 8 June, at the Family Life Centre,
Walkers Road; and in Bodden Town, Thursday, 10 June, at the Bodden Town Primary
School.

The
Cayman Brac meeting will also take place on Thursday, 10 June, at the Aston
Rutty Centre.

“We
are urging all interested to come, listen and sign up for a chance to be chosen
as a census worker,” said Economics and Statistics Office Director Maria
Zingapan.

Attendees
of the meetings will learn about the criteria to qualify to be census workers.
These include having a high school diploma or higher, a driver’s licence and a
use of reliable transportation. Census workers must also be discreet, honest
and have readable handwriting.

Those
who have already signed are also asked to attend. The approximately 270 census
workers selected will join the team conducting the national population and
housing count that begins on 10 October.

Those
selected will also undergo training over several weeks to become either
enumerators or supervisors in the different districts.
