Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau surveys our population to determine how many people live within our nation’s borders, as well as demographic information such as who they are and where they live. As the national population reached a total of 281,421,906 in the 2000 census, this is quite a labor-intensive task.
Currently, the Census Bureau is gearing up to hire tens of thousands of temporary, part-time workers as census takers to locate households, explain the purpose of the census, conduct brief interviews with residents and aiding them in completing the census questionnaire and recording responses. These are great positions for anyone who is looking for part-time work, is between jobs, or is looking for a source of extra income.
In addition to offering good pay, benefits to being a census worker for the government include flexible hours, paid training, reimbursement for work-related expenses (such as mileage), and the chance to work in your own community.
