Enumerators Bureau

Background Information

The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) has established an Enumerators’ Bureau to accredit and certify field data collectors with the aim of improving the quality of survey and census information that are used for national development planning. The institutionalization of a formal long term engagement with field officers will provide an opportunity to streamline capacity building interventions, build trust between enumerators and respondents and create an opportunity for career development. This has become imperative because, increasingly, both public and private sector institutions rely on data for investment and resolving challenges that confront the nation.

The GSS therefore, invites interested persons who are goal-oriented, results-driven and possess leadership qualities to enrol on the Enumerators’ Bureau.
