LISGIS starts census enumeration training Wednesday

The Liberia Institute of Statistics and Geo-Information Services (LISGIS) in collaboration with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) announces start of nationwide training for Census Enumerators on Wednesday, 12th October.

The training had been scheduled for today, Monday, 10th October, but was pushed to Wednesday to enable LISGIS to beef up logistics in ‘difficult-to-reach areas’ nationwide.

In a press release, the Institute says ‘Provisional List of Shortlisted Enumerators has been revised to reflect actual number of enumerators that are expected to report for training on Wednesday at 148 Training Centers across the country.

It notes that selected applicants will be trained for ten days on how to conduct census enumeration, using digital maps and Computer Aided Personal Interview (CAPI) technology.

After the training exercise, successful trainees will be deployed nationwide to conduct the actual count of the 2022 Liberia National Population and Housing Census immediately.

“The 2022 Liberia National Population and Housing Census is among the first censuses in Africa to employ digital technology from start to finish. The country has been divided into 13,845 Enumeration Areas following the Census Cartography (mapping process) conducted from May 2021 to February 2022. Each Enumeration Area will be allocated to one enumerator to complete during the counting process from 24th October to 7th November 2022.” The release details. 

Meanwhile, LISGIS says it regrets any inconveniences these changes may have caused the applicants, and adds that with the support of partners, it reaffirms readiness to deliver the 2022 Liberia National Population and Housing Census per the set timeline. Press Release

  2. I am Junita A . an applicant.
    I did not take the test due to illness. Therefore how can I take the late text

  3. Lisgis entire measures to select workers are completely wrong unsatisfactory.
    From the onset, it was mandated that 24, 000 applicants were shortlisted and that all application must be done online.
    Citizens were shortlisted at a particular center from which the aptitude test was to be taken by 152 applicants per-center.
    Out of this number, only 110 were to be accepted with best grades.
    At the E.Jonathan Goodridge high school, Barnesville of which I was assigned to, 400 plus applicants did the test. Out of these applicants, 152 applicants assigned to Goodridge were to be listed out and choosing the best 110 grades only leaving the remaining applicants to go to their assigned centers to check their grades. But the supervisor didn’t do so, she selected randomly by taking over 80 applicants from other centers telling them that they should start their training at our assigned center leaving majority of the original assigned applicants out of the entire process.
    This is so sad to experience. Imagine this

  4. Please publish the attitude/evaluation rest result for yesterday so that people enumerators will know his/her training centers.
