Census Workers Needed Already for Next Year's Count

Next year, the U.S. Census will be conducted to count the American population which will ultimately lead to the formation of new Congressional districts, as well as the collection of important data about the country's citizens.

Hiring is underway for the large effort.

Workers are paid every week and are able to work flexible hours with paid training. To apply, click here.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and have a valid Social Security number and email address.

Males born after December 31, 1959, must also be registered with the Selective Service System or have a qualifying exemption. As part of the application process, applicants will be asked questions related to their education, work, and other experiences.

Potential employees must pass a criminal background check and review of criminal records (including fingerprinting).  

Employees should have access to a vehicle and a valid driver’s license, unless public transportation is readily available. Employees should also have access to an Internet-connected computer (to complete the training process).

Work schedules depend on individual positions. Generally, hours for field positions are flexible. Some positions require work during the day and other positions require evening and weekend work interviewing the public.  In addition, supervisory positions require employees to be available for certain day, evening, and/or weekend shifts. The Census Bureau is committed to hiring Census Workers to work in their own communities.
