Training guide: CS98-1951I-8E-PDF

"This is your guide. It presents a method of training Census enumerators, of whom some 18,000 will be required to take the 1951 Census. You will train a small group of them. There must be uniform instruction to ensure uniform enumerationand to produce comparable statistics. Details for each training session have been carefully worked out. All field supervisors must follow these closely to avoid differences of interpretations and methods which would ruin the accuracy of the Census. Moreover, your task of supervising the actual enumeration will be made easier since your enumerators will be well versed in proper procedure. Basic materials with which you will work are: the Enumerators Manual, the various questionnaires and forms for Population, Housing, Agriculture and Fisheries, the Practice Narratives, the filmstrips and this Guide"-Introd., p.
