    Don't think so as he looked legit and had a badge. Wanted to book a phone call

    The CSO do door-to-door surveying, and the Labour Force Survey is a legit survey they do. You should be able to contact the CSO and verify their credentials.

    I'm also fairly sure its optional, the CSO has some powers of compulsion (the census, for instance) but probably not for this.
