High Frequency Phone Survey (HFPS)

The Central Statistical Office supported by the World Bank is currently implementing the Saint Lucia COVID-19 High-Frequency Phone Survey (HFPS).

The World Bank is providing support to countries to help mitigate the spread and impact of the new Corona Virus disease (COVID-19). One area of support is for data collection to inform evidence-based policies that may help mitigate the effects of this disease.

The objective of the Saint Lucia National COVID-19 High-Frequency Phone Survey (HFPS) is to monitor the socio-economic effects of this evolving COVID-19 pandemic in real-time. The project will run from May through June 2020, with the first round being in May and the follow up round in June.


COVID-19 has impacted the mode of data collection in numerous ways for the Central Statistical Office (CSO).

Despite the many challenges occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Central Statistical Office is firm in its commitment to fulfilling its mandate and for that very reason, has decided to suspend all face-to-face interviews and adopt telephone interviews for the conduct of surveys.

Such a decision is in keeping with the respective protocols established for the COVID-19 pandemic.
