Census Bureau Director Kenneth Prewitt will kick off enumerator training for Census 2000 non-response follow-up at St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Falls Church, Va., on Monday, April 24, at 9:00 a.m. EDT.
A photo opportunity and question-and-answer period for the news media will follow from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. EDT.
More than half a million temporary workers are being hired for the non-response follow-up phase of the census. They will undergo either three days or five evenings of enumerator training, whichever is more convenient.
(Editor's note: The director will hold another in his series of operational press briefings at the National Press Club on Tuesday, April 25, at 1:00 p.m. EDT to outline the details of the non-response follow-up phase of Census 2000.)
