U.S. Census Bureau is Recruiting Workers 2010 Census

PHILADELPHIA – (Feb. 2, 2009) With Census Day on April 1, 2010 less than two months away, the United States Census Bureau is recruiting workers to fill various positions.

Hundreds of enumerators, crew leaders, supervisors and crew assistants will be needed this spring to complete the final operation for the decennial census. The part-time, temporary jobs offer good pay, flexible hours, paid training and the ability to work close to home. The pay ranges from $13.25 to $16.25 per hour.

Applicants are required to take and pass a test, must be 18 or older, and pass a background check. More information, including a practice test, is available at this web site: www.2010censusjobs.gov or by calling the toll-free jobs number at: 1 (866) 861-2010. Interested parties should call the toll-free number to learn about the testing schedule for their area.

The U.S. Constitution requires a population and housing count every 10 years. The effort employs some of the most sophisticated technical and operational tools available, as well as a workforce of 1.4 million temporary employees to count every man, woman and child and once and in the right place. Census results are the basis for congressional representation as well as the distribution of federal, state and local funds totaling more than $400 billion annually. Census Day is April 1, 2010.
