Back at the Bureau

So for those two readers of my blog that follow my blog, you may remember that I did Census Canvassing for a few months and it turned out to be quite an experience.

I didn't read the "Print Name" until I finished the first letter of my name

I was called at the end of July to take a Supervisors test that is for the Census operation that will be taking place at the beginning of this year, but in the meantime, I got called back a few weeks ago to start training for another phase of the 2010 Census and the training started today.

The Hawaii Tribune had an article about the Census recently and it was totally filled with mis-information… but the guy who wrote it is an OK guy so I won’t give Peter Sur too much grief about it.

Any rate, we are going back into field operations again next week in what is called the Group Quarters Validation segment of the 2010 Decennial Census.  Where we will be working with the Prisons, Hospitals, and other places where people live in “Group Quarters”.

Because of the confidentiality involved in the process, I can’t really talk to much about what we are doing or how we will be operating during this segment of the Census.

I was quite happy to see 5 others that were part of my previous group of co-workers back to be part of this segment.

  1. Hi Damon, I am the other one. :) Good Luck. I didn’t get the call for this phase, but our local offices should be open soon and I hope to go back.

  2. Congratulations on the work. You’ll certainly get to meet a lot of new people doing census work.

  3. Hi Damon,
    I’m one of those two guys!
    Have fun.
