The U.S. Census Bureau is already looking for job applicants to work the 2020 Census. We are currently hiring through May of 2020 for temporary assignments, most lasting up to 8-10 weeks.
A Census Population and Housing is taken in the United States every 10 years. A Decennial Census is required by the U. S. Constitution to determine the number of seats each state will have in the House of Representatives for each state.
Census positions provide the perfect opportunity to earn extra income while helping your community. The results of the 2020 Census will help determine your state’s representation in Congress, as well as how certain funds are spent for schools, hospitals, roads, and more. This is your chance to play a part in history and help ensure everyone in your community is counted!
In addition to supporting your community, census jobs offer great pay every week, flexible hours, and
