Employment survey begins in March

| 12/02/2020 | 13 Comments

(CNS): The Economics and Statistics Office (ESO) will begin its Spring Labour Force Survey (LFS) next month to collect data on people in the Cayman Islands who are employed, those looking for work, as well as those who are not in the workforce. Beginning on Sunday, 8 March, trained interviewers will visit 1,500 randomly selected households to administer the survey. A release from the ESO thanked people who have participated in the previous surveys, and asked for the support of the general public for this Spring 2020 exercise.

The office assured the public that all data collected is kept in the strictest confidence, as mandated by the Statistics Law (2016 Revision). Individual data will not be published or used outside of the ESO and is exempted from the Freedom of Information Law.

For more information on any aspect of the survey or results of previous surveys, contact the Economics and Statistics Office at 516-3329 or 949-0940 or visit the ESO website.

    Ha we know the Minister responsible Roy McTaggart doesn’t use the stats! I heard him question an opposition member on where he was getting his information that was quoted in a debate and he said “from the ESO website minister”

    Why not check businesses to see if they employ Caymanians or if they ever did.

    This seems like a job for some trusted inmates from Northward to do. Might as well try to re-intigrate them into society before they are released.

    Just remember that nobody has to answer this rediculous survey.

    I am one who thinks surveys are an excellent way to collect data on a particular matter But if this information sits in a ring binder in someone’s office then what good has been achieved.

    For years, this monstetous task, gets done and the truth of the matter is that very little is done to use such data to provide ways to create realistic employment opportunities that will benefit Caymanians first and foremost.

    The question begs to be asked who is this annual task done for.

    I don’t open my door to anyone I’m not expecting or who doesn’t have my phone # to text me that they’re outside.

    Will you promise to not peep through my window to see if I am home? My security cameras record all of the activity that takes place around my home.

We have created a new system to help us address questions we receive from the public for the press briefings. We are getting hundreds every day and it’s impossible to read and deal with them while the PB is in process as there are a lot of moving parts to being able to do the Zoom meeting, take notes and respond to their info in real time.

So we are asking people to send their questions each day BEFORE NOON to: covid-questions@caymannewsservice.com

This will give us a chance to read, sort and consolidate the questions so that we get to the issues that people are most concerned about.

Thanks for your help. In the meantime the ones you have sent will be sorted and collated.
