Today I want to discuss some of the Work of a Census Profiler. The Work of a Census Profiler is very important in a census investigation. It is also important for a Census Person to be able to relate with their population as well as being well informed about their area of residence.
A Census Person has many obligations, it is not limited to understanding their community. When you are working with a census person or part of a staff in a government agency, you are responsible for being able to work with them to gather data to present in a comprehensive report. You must be able to assess the accuracy of what they have collected and verify their sources.
There are several important steps you can take to help your work. One of these steps is to take the time to speak with your colleagues and others in the area where the person’s home is located. Do you know anyone who might have lived in the home for some time?
You may need to do research to find out who the Census Person has contacted. In order to find people in the area your individual is being questioned about, use the telephone book and search the yellow pages. You should also ask friends and neighbors to see if they can help. In order to get information on neighbors that you do not know very well, you may want to contact the person’s employer.
Take a trip to the census site and speak with the Census Person. You will need to tell him or her your purpose for being there. You should be ready to describe the type of questions you are going to ask. You will need to confirm that the person has provided all of the information they have so that you can ask the correct questions.
Once you have agreed to go to the home of theCensus Person you are interviewing, be prepared to gather enough evidence to provide to the Census Agent. This will include financial documents and insurance policies, cell phone bills, bank statements, etc.
When you are preparing to interview a Census Person, make sure that you thoroughly understand all of the laws concerning this type of investigation. The Federal Court in Ontario made it clear that it is mandatory that the Division of Housing can refuse entry to a census person if he or she cannot properly answer questions. If you do not fully understand the request by the Division of Housing, consult an attorney.
Remember that the individual interviewed is not likely to be able to leave his or her home. While they will be home, it is possible that you will be unable to get in contact with them or follow up with them until they are available to talk to you. This is when it is important to contact your co-workers, neighbors, friends, and other acquaintances to be sure that your information is accurate.
Your final step is to interview the Census Person once you have gathered all of the requested information. Be sure to ask all of the same questions and explain everything to them. These questions will be used by the federal Division of Housing to determine the individual’s eligibility to receive the Federal Rental Assistance. You must understand what the questions are to make sure that your work is done properly.
One of the key jobs of a Census Person is to correctly state and translate the federal definition of “a person who receives income”. You must tell the person who receives the amount of income from their work. They will also need to state what they think the value of their housing is.
All of the above are key tasks for a Census Profiler to accomplish. The steps mentioned here are just a sample of the many things that a person who is working as a Census Person has to do.
To further illustrate how important the work of a Census Person is, local governments need to use the information that a census person can provide to plan their budgets. The Census Code provides all of the information necessary to help a municipality in budgeting their spending. Many community development types also need this type of information in order to make plans for their area.
