US Census Bureau (Under Contract with Evolver, Inc.)
Android App Development
We all know that the US Census Bureau performs a nationwide population count every 10 years called the Decennial Census. What’s lesser known about the Census Bureau is that they have teams who specialize in helping developing nations conduct their Censuses. Census Bureau demographers, statisticians, and subject matter experts have helped Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya, and others conduct their population Censuses as well as helping nations develop surveys and questionnaires for health, economic, and agricultural data.
As the proliferation of cheap tablets spread across the globe, many developing nations have requested the Census Bureau to use data capture and survey software running on Android tablets because they are less expensive than laptop computers. The Census Bureau through a contract with Evolver, Inc. hired The Studio to lead the UI/UX design, software development, and deployment strategy for CSEntry for Android. Our development team ported existing Windows code to Android C++ using a special build of the Android Native Development Kit to support unicode characters for glyph languages. The team ported existing Windows code, designed the user interface, and wrote the application using Android Java ahead of the Census Bureau’s own Decennial 2020 mobile applications.
CSEntry is available in the Google Play Store.
