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.
Director of the BSS, Aubrey Browne, has emphasised the importance of the survey, saying the public’s cooperation is vital for its success. “For surveys to be meaningful, a good response is needed from the respondents. I urge householders to contribute to the process of having accurate national statistics by responding fully to interviewers,” he said.
