It was a great experience. I learned to manage a group of enumerators (15-25). I overlooked their territory (Essex County), manage all submitted questionnaires, signed timesheets and OT, hired and fired enumerators for various phases of the job.
Also went with enumerators into various dangerous neighborhoods and dealt with immigrants of various ethnic groups and languages.
Meeting people of all walks of life.
Going into dangereous neighborhoods and dealing with beligerant tenants.
