Want to be a Census Taker in 2020?
Census takers will interview household residents and update address lists using electronic devices (such as smartphones and tablets) issued by the Census Bureau. Selected applicants will attend paid training before beginning work.
Prior to the census, census takers will use maps and address lists to determine if addresses are correct. Later, they will visit homes that haven't responded to the census, speaking with residents and using electronic devices to collect census data.
Number of Positions: Hundreds of thousands.
Hours: Schedules are flexible and dependent on where you're working. Many of the positions require availability to work in the evenings and on the weekends.
Timeline: Most job offers will be made in January and February 2020. Paid training occurs in March and April. Census takers will help collect responses from homes that have not yet responded to the census between May and early July.
