St Kitts and Nevis: The Department of Statistics in the Ministry of Sustainable Development have launched training sessions for the enumerators for the Population and Housing Census to conduct in the Federation of St Kitts and Nevis.
They have also undergone a series of training sessions to conduct a crucial task for the population and Housing Census nears in St Kitts and Nevis.
While expressing pleasure for becoming one of the enumerators, Carla Mills-Diamond in an interview with St Kitts and Nevis Information Service stated that it is extremely essential for her to be a part of the Population and Housing Census especially given its significance.
“I became a volunteer for the Population and Housing Census exercise as I feel that this is really important of having statistics. Census plays a significant role in the growth of any country as we want to provide statistics to become the of any foreign body which is really important that we have captured the data and we have taken the data appropriately,” underscored Mills Diamond.
She further noted that the training is significant as it prepared every enumerator for any challenges and also makes them aware of the substantial aspects that should be included in the Census.
She further stated that everyone should understand the importance of training because enumerators will be going to meet different kinds of people and personalities and have to face numerous types of challenges while conducting the Census.
Diamond affirmed, “We are going to interact with the different personalities who would have had different perceptions and ways of looking at the Census as the process could be intrusive and we should also have to get prepared to convince people to be part of the census. So If you are not properly aware of every con of the procedures and are not trained then you can’t meet up on some sensitive aspects that could make it comfortable.”
She also urged that the training is essential and people also should be part of it to conduct the census appropriately.
