CHECK NOW || Ghana Statistical Service releases full list of shortlisted applicants

As the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS)  has released the list of shortlisted or selected applicants (Enumerators List) for the June 2020 population and housing census (PHC). An interview would begin soon after which those who pass the interview will be invited for training sometime late May or early June. This was revealed in an earlier post the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) as stated below:

They have a shortfall of applicants in a few districts and the District Census Officers in those particular districts have been tasked to encourage qualified persons who are residents of those districts to apply at the district level. 

That is to say, some districts would engage in a manual application at the district level instead of the online application. The requirements for application at the district level is that applicants must be a resident or native of the districts i.e conversant with the language, terrain, etc.

If you still wish to apply, kindly contact your District Office and ask of the District Census Officer. If there are still vacancies for enumerator applications for that particular district, he/she will assist you to apply so long as you meet the minimum qualification i.e SHS Graduate.

Once the application at the district level is done, the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) will now go ahead to shortlist and invite qualified applicants for the interview

Those who pass the interview will be invited for training sometime late May or early June.

The recruitment for the District Census Officers ( they will be in charge of Census work for the districts) is over however and they have already started work.

We expect to also engage District Level Data and IT personnel in addition to the over 60 thousand enumerators that we will be engaging in.

Kindly note that the Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) has a Facebook page dedicated to the Census.
