Survey and fieldwork methods – National economic census 2004/2005 Argentina
During 2004-2005 I had the opportunity of join the National economic Census in Argentina. I was appointed as regional methodological chief for many different municipalities across the province of Buenos Aires, the biggest and richest region in Argentina.
Two of these municipalities were part of the biggest concentration of population in Argentina: Avellaneda and Lanus while the other were located in the south of Buenos Aires place of the most important agricultural activity. This was a first experience on professional training but also as chief of a big team as I was in charge of the training of regional coordinators and regional trainers (i.e. methodological issues on gathering information, survey management and human resource recruitment and management) but also the methodological supervisor during all the project. Thousands of kilometres later, I had carried out selection process, training, coordination and supervision of more than 50 professionals who were at the same time in charge of more than 200 pollster. The experience was great and the results has changed the perception of the regional economy. (Here some results)
