Another step has been taken towards the realization of the 2022 Demographic Census of the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), which will begin in August. The final result of the selection process for the vacancies of census taker, municipal census agent and supervisory census agent was released. Those who applied for a vacancy can consult the result on the internet.
The next step will be the call, when the approved candidates within the number of vacancies will be called for training. More than 621 thousand people applied for the positions distributed in 5,297 municipalities in the country. There will be 206,891 temporary Census workers, with 183,021 census takers scheduled for training from July 18 to 22, 18,420 supervisory census agents and 5,450 municipal census agents, both with training scheduled from June 6 to 15. Training for census takers will have an eliminatory and qualifying nature and will be carried out by IBGE in two stages: self-instruction and face-to-face.
As provided for in the public notice, the other successful candidates will be kept on a waiting list and can be called later.
As of August 1, it is estimated that 215 million inhabitants, in more than 70 million households, will be visited by census takers in the country's 5,570 municipalities, according to the IBGE. Data collection continues until the month of October, with the release of the first results scheduled for December.
The census takers who go to the residences will work wearing a cap and blue vest with the IBGE logo. In the vest, there is also the identification badge, with photo, and the registration and identity numbers of the interviewer. It is possible to check the identity of the IBGE interviewers on the website responderndo.ibge.gov.br or by calling 0800 721 8181.
They will use the blue-colored Mobile Collection Device (DMC), similar to a smartphone, to record the information.
In 2022, the basic questionnaire to be applied to households has 26 questions on topics such as household characteristics, family nucleus, religion, education level, work and income. A small sample of the population will answer the long questionnaire that has 77 questions and the application lasts, on average, 17 minutes.
Every ten years, population censuses update information about the country. It is the main source of information on the population's living conditions that are used to plan government public policies, investments and for the distribution of federal resources between states and municipalities.
Information raised with questions related to the characteristics of households and commuting to study and work, for example, is used to plan housing programs and transport systems. Data on family arrangements provide the basis for planning social programs, such as Auxílio Brasil. Information about disability, religion or cult and color or race makes it possible to build protection policies and guarantees of rights.
