ABOUT 150 of the more than 300 field workers of CNMI Census 2020 were commended Sunday for a job well done.

The CNMI Census 2020 office hosted an appreciation picnic at Kilili Beach at 10 a.m. and handed out certificates of appreciation to the enumerators, field supervisors, crew leaders, crew leader assistants and interpreters. They also received a surprise bonus.

“On behalf of the governor, I want to thank you for the hard work and I look forward to see the latest demographics of the Commonwealth,” Lt. Gov. Arnold I. Palacios told them.

CNMI Census office manager Clyde Norita said the census workers completed the job two months earlier than planned. Their target date was Nov. 30, but by July 30, the enumerators had already completed the count, he added.

For the entire month of August, he said they verified the information and ensured the quality of the data.

“They did a great job,” Norita said. “Despite the Covid-19 and everything else, we finished quite early. All of our counts are done, and hopefully by next week we will be boxing everything up and shipping them to Indiana for processing.  To our field employees, all I can say is that they did an exceptional job as they reached out to everybody in the CNMI.”

U.S. Census adviser Colleen Joyce also commended the enumerators “for all their hard work.”

Commerce Secretary Mark Rabauliman, who was himself a CNMI census enumerator 10 years ago, said that this year’s census was a success because of the field workers’ hard work and great leadership.

Norita said they will hold appreciation picnics for the field workers on Tinian on Sept. 19 and on Rota on Sept. 26.
