ESO to Conduct Field Work for Household Register Update May 26th-Aug 29th 2014
"The Household Register provides a count of all households in the Cayman Islands, based on the 2010 Census."
The ESO will be conducting a full update of the Cayman Islands Household Register from May 26th to August 29th, 2014. The Household Register provides a count of all households in the Cayman Islands, based on the 2010 Census.
⫿It is important for policy makers to be informed from household statistics. Therefore, I am urging the public to cooperate with this statistical activity which will be the basis for selecting households for future surveys such as the labour force surveys,??? stated the Hon. Marco Archer, Minister of Finance for Economic Development.
This is the first time since the 2010 Census that a full update of the Household Register will be conducted. Trained enumerators will visit every dwelling unit listed in the Household Register, as well as newly constructed dwelling units that are not listed, to determine if they are occupied by a household.
ESO will also be upgrading its data collection process through the use of tablets.
ESO officials expect the continued cooperation from the community as in the past household surveys. ⫿We thank them anew in advance for their support this year,??? stated ESO Director Maria Zingapan. She added that ESO staff members can be identified through their IDs. She therefore advises that concerned community members should always ask for the field workers to present their IDs before providing key information.
