The Bureau of Statistics (BOS) will commence enumerating a sample of 8,700 randomly selected households across Guyana, for the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) in 2019. The MICS is an international household survey developed and supported by UNICEF and is designed to collect estimates of key indicators that are used to assess the situation of children and women.

Selection Criteria :

Passes at the CXC Proficiency Level or GCE Ordinary Level Examinations in Grades 1, 2, 3/ABC, in Mathematics and English are required.

Good inter-personal communication skills would be essential.

Competence in the use of a tablet, smart phone and participation in previous surveys would be distinct advantages.


Persons selected as enumerator trainees will be required to undergo a three-week period of training in February 2019. Only persons who can commit to this time are encouraged to apply.

Such training would be daily over the three week period and daily attendance would be mandatory for all selected trainees.
