The Central Statistical Office (CSO) said a national population sample survey exercise is currently underway involving visits from field interviewers, with which citizens must comply by law.
In a statement, the CSO said the field interviewers will be visiting various locations as part of the Continuous Sample Survey of the Population (CSSP) to carry out the ‘largest intercensal exercise’ to date.
The CSO said the project involves six surveys with as many as 50 people throughout the country at any one point in time: 20 field interviewers in north Trinidad, 21 in Central and South Trinidad and nine in Tobago.
The CSO said the survey is continuous and will go on well into 2021 once conditions allow. It added that the survey is used solely for developing summary tables and will not be used for the purposes of taxation, investigation or regulations.
