Central Bureau for Statistics (CBS) is currently fully engaged in carrying out the Budget Survey 2013 on Bonaire, Saba and St. Eustatius, writes The Daily Herald. This budget survey is considered an indispensible source of data on spending, used by CBS for the production of inflation figures and other data. Many businesses and institutes use these figures to index salaries of their employees. The survey is not yet completed. During the upcoming weeks, CBS employees will continue approaching selected persons and families. CBS is urging persons to cooperate with the survey as this is deemed essential to the reliability of data. Based on the collected data statements will be provided on spending of the islands’ inhabitants. In a press release, CBS expressed gratitude towards all families and persons who have cooperated with the survey, as well as to those who are willing to cooperate in the coming weeks.
