Home Visits Caribbean Netherlands

We regularly ask people to participate in one of our surveys. Some people we ask to participate in a personal interview at home. This way we collect important information about different people. This leads to reliable figures.

On this page you can read how we handle the safety rules on the three islands of the Caribbean Netherlands and what we take into account when we can continue with a home visit.

To read how we operate in the European Netherlands, click on: Home Visits Netherlands (EU).

Bonaire, St. Eustatius, Saba

On the islands of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba we follow the latest rules of the official authorities of the concerning island. Only when it is allowed according to the rules of the official authorities, we will visit you. In this respect, safety comes first!

You can find more information about the safety rules on the three islands on the various websites of the official authorities.

Below you can find the main measures that the employee of CBS (‘Statistics Netherlands’) will take:

- The CBS employee will always keep a distance of at least 1.5 metres. We also ask you to do the same. Together with you the CBS employee will decide where the interview can take place safely. Outdoors or indoors?

- Before and after an interview the CBS employee disinfects his or her hands with hand sanitizer. He or she will also clean the laptop with sanitizing tissues.

- Would you like the CBS employee to wear a mouth mask? Not a problem. He or she will always bring this along. If the employee wants to wear a mouth mask then he or she will also indicate this.

- Did you, or someone who lives with you, suffer from complaints like coughing, a cold, a fever or shortness of breath in the past 24 hours? Or are you part of a risk group? For instance due to your age or a chronic disease? Then together with you the CBS employee will determine whether a safe interview is possible.

A CBS employee will not visit you if he or she has had complaints in the past 14 days.

If you still have questions, please feel free to contact us.

How do I know for sure that it regards a CBS survey?


CBS will always send a letter first. It is mentioned in this letter for what survey you were invited and what we ask of you. In the letter you can also read where you can ask questions. 


The CBS employee can always provide identification with a card of CBS. Are you not home when the employee visits your home? When nobody of the household is home, the interviewer will try again at a different time.
