Interviewers needed to conduct income and spending survey

A call was made by the Department of Statistics for people to carry out interviews about household income and expenditure.

The survey of 1,500 randomly selected residents is being conducted throughout the year to gauge incomes and spending habits.

The information, which is collected every ten years, is used to calculate the Consumer Price Index and the island’s Gross Domestic Product.

It is also a useful tool to understand income and expenditure patterns as well as living standards.

Jason Hayward, the Minister of Economy and Labour, said: "Producing reliable and relevant statistics is crucial for data-driven decision-making.

“The 2024 Household Income and Expenditure Survey is vital in understanding Bermuda’s current conditions.

“The data gathered will impact the future of all residents, likely for the next ten years. We sincerely thank each household selected for their ongoing co-operation with this survey, which will help guide the future of our island home.

“Your dedication and commitment are greatly appreciated."

A ministry spokesman added that all information gathered is confidential and protected.

The randomly selected households received brochures and letters notifying them of their interview month, while interviewers visiting the selected households will have a letter of authenticity and an ID card identifying themselves as authorised representatives from the Department of Statistics.

Anyone interested in conducting interviews was asked to e-mail hies@gov.bm for more information
