The role of a CSO Survey Interviewer

Being a survey interviewer for the CSO is a rewarding, social and flexible role. A CSO Interviewer is the main contact person for several households taking part in CSO surveys, explaining the purpose and importance of the data being collected and how it is used across all localities and areas of society.

Survey Interviewers are a valuable part of the CSO Household Surveys team, key to recording vital information about the economic and social situation of real people in Ireland. With the help of Survey Interviewers, the CSO tells the true and accurate picture of life in Ireland. Learn more about the role of a CSO Survey Interviewer in this video.
