The goal is to recruit temporary workers beginning in the spring of 2020 and filling these jobs is critical to ensure a complete and accurate census.

The Census Bureau needs to hire about 500,000 census takers across the country in 2020. Peak recruiting efforts start now to meet this goal.

Applying early to work as a census taker is a great way for holiday seasonal workers, students, retirees and workers in the gig economy to line up spring and summer employment.
