Nevis Household Survey Begins on Friday (October 16)

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Pre-census mapping begins on Nevis on Friday, October 16, and ends on November 20, 2020.

Head of the Department of Statistics and Economic Planning Dorriel Phillip said the exercise aims to collect data on the number of households and persons residing in the communities on the island before next year’s census.

” …we need to capture the new houses that have been built and we need to know how many persons are right now residing on Nevis so that we can plan for 2021 actual census,” she said.

For the exercise, parishes are subdivided into Enumeration Districts (EDs) with each district not exceeding 100 households.

“That’s one of the first things we are checking in that the EDs that we presently have do not exceed 100 households and for those that have exceeded 100 households, with the help of the [Department of Physical Planning] we will have to change the boundaries of the EDs.”

The survey requires participants answering five questions:

Who is the head of the household?

The contact number for the head of the household?

The number of persons living in the household?

How many persons living in households are males and how many are females?

The address of the household.

“I would just like to encourage the general public to work along with our enumerators when they come to your homes. It won’t take you more than two to three minutes to answer the five questions. They will be using tablets so once the information is in, it is private, it’s confidential and it would be kept in the strictest confidence.

The enumerators conducting the survey will be identified by their name tags which will also bear the department’s logo
