Data Collection Help Wanted

The Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), is in need of data collectors who can give us about 15 to 20 hours every four months to gather prices on 60 consumer goods and services. The work involves a few evenings and weekends in January, April, and July. Most of the work is done by telephone and internet although we do require the data collectors to visit number of grocery stores and gas stations across the areas as part of the pricing process.

Requirements: Attention to detail, basic knowledge of applied statistics and/or applied economics, some basic computer applications (internet), excellent telephone and interpersonal skills.

This is a perfect job for students who want to pick up on some analytical skills. It is also perfect for local chambers of commerce and/or economic development agencies looking for economic data for their community.

Participants receive the quarterly data publication free of charge as well as access to back data. They also receive substantial discounts on other C2ER data products such as our Historical Index and our online Cost of Living Calculator.

C2ER provides all necessary training.

If you wish to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Erol Yildirim at ey@crec.net. Please provide your phone number and email address. We ask for a commitment to collect data in three quarterly periods. Excellent candidates may continue the project as long as they wish.
