Incomplete records delaying payments to census workers

The Statistical Institute of Jamaica, STATIN, has indicated that the submission of incomplete visitation records is one reason some census workers have still not been paid.

Director General Carol Coy made the revelation Thursday while providing an update on the 2022 Population and Housing Census.

Some workers have complained about waiting months, or even a year, to be paid for data collection for the Census, which began in September 2022.

Responding to the remuneration concerns, Ms Coy stressed that STATIN is working to process all outstanding payments to census workers, but has a challenge due to inconsistent records.

She reiterated that the submission of questionnaires is not the final portion of the census, as persons have to submit visitation records, and return the tablets they were issued, for final payment to be made.
