The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Secretariat will hold a live radio and online discussion on Thursday, 28 April 2022, on the Population and Housing Census.
Among the participants on the interactive radio talk show will be CARICOM Deputy Secretary-General, Dr. Armstrong Alexis, and Director, Regional Statistics, Dr. Philomen Harrison, Directors of Statistics and Chief Statistics Officers, and representatives of International Development Partners.
This Round of Census should have begun in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the start. The Census in the Caribbean was launched last August. Some Member States have already begun their Census activities and are in various stages of the exercise. Others have indicated they will begin their activities later this year.
Countries will use three methods to conduct the Census: Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI); Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI); and via the internet, Computer Assisted Web Interviewing (CAWI).
