The public is advised that the Barbados Statistical Service (BSS) is currently conducting a Continuous Labour Force Sample Survey throughout the island.
The survey is now in its fourth quarter for 2016, and field officers are collecting data from selected households.
Members of the public are reminded that the officers are carrying photo identification cards, but if they have any queries, they should call the BSS at 535-2600.
An official at the department has underscored the importance of the survey. “The public’s cooperation is vital for the success of the programme, and I urge householders to contribute to the process of having accurate national statistics by responding fully to interviewers.
“For surveys to be meaningful, a good response is needed from the respondents. Information is only as good as the information that the individual provides,” the official stressed.
During this month, field officers will be in several districts in St. Michael, Christ Church, St. George, St. Thomas and St. Peter.
