We began our week with a breakfast meeting to lay out the week's work schedule. All of the census enumerators would have a designated area that we would canvas. We reviewed assignment areas to organize neighborhoods and locate households to conduct census interviews and collected relevant information from the residents. We recorded census data on forms, maintained records of hours worked, miles driven and all of our daily expenses.
It was always enjoyable talking with the residents and getting their data.Sometime it was challenging, in rural areas, to make my way to a residents' home. I also enjoyed canvassing the neighborhood with my coworkers.
I liked the job.
Talking with residents
Census didn't last long enough
