Every ten years, the U.S. Census Bureau is responsible for conducting the nationwide census. While the next census will be taken in 2020, the Census Bureau is already recruiting to fill important temporary positions. Did you know that the census count helps determine your state’s representation in Congress? Local residents are needed to help ensure an accurate count.

Census Takers’ work schedules are flexible. Some temporary positions require work during the day, while others require evening and weekend work.

Positions include:

  • clerks
  • recruiting assistants
  • office operations supervisors
  • census field supervisors
  • census takers

You can apply for a temporary 2020 Census job if you’re at least 18 years old, have a valid Social Security number, are a U.S. citizen and have a valid email address. Additional job requirements
can be found on the 2020census.gov website.
