Guam - Representatives from the Census Bureau are on island this week preparing for the 2012 Economic Census. Businesses are being interviewed this week as part of the bureau's cognitive questionnaire pre-testing research for next year's count.  The interviews will evaluate and improve the wording and clarity of the questions that will be asked in the economic census forms used on Guam and the CNMI.

Chief Economic Census Branch's Lee Wentela and other representatives met with the governor and the Department of Labor this morning to discuss the preparations that are underway. "We talked to him [the governor] about what the data is and he's really excited that it's going to contribute to the gross domestic product, so we're going to help make those numbers better," he said.

The Economic Census is conducted every five years collecting information about employment and payroll, sales, e-commerce and inventories.
