population count.











Data Collection: The majority of available positions at the Census Bureau involve data collection. Data collection involves working from home and interacting with the public. These jobs could involve the following tasks: knocking on doors to collect personal information and verifying household address listings. These jobs almost certainly require you to work nights, weekends, and whenever respondents are available. Limited data collection supervisory positions are also available for the Decennial Census and Special Census programs.

Outreach: These positions are only available for the Decennial Census program. These positions involve outreach to Census partners and potential applicants for Census jobs. Outreach work is conducted outside an office environment.

Office: For applicants who live close to one of the limited number of Census Bureau offices, there are a few office positions available. Office duties include a variety of clerical support tasks such as file maintenance, data entry, answering/making phone calls, word processing, shipping and receiving, processing payroll and personnel actions, and other administrative operations. Limited office supervisory positions are also available for the Decennial Census and Special Census programs.


If you are hired, the information you collect from the public will be confidential and must NOT be disclosed to anyone who has not been sworn in to protect Census Bureau information.


Short-term: Most positions are short-term and generally last several weeks.

Long-term: There are a limited number of long-term positions. Long-term positions vary in length, but could extend several weeks, months, or years, depending on the survey work available. Applicants who are selected for long-term positions will be notified of the duration during the interview.


If selected, you may be asked to attend a paid training session. You may be asked to travel for training and will be reimbursed. Certain positions may require you to complete automated self-studies online and/or classroom training that may require travel to another city on government per diem for several days, including overnight travel. Other positions may require on-the-job training, as well as refresher training sessions periodically.


Social Security deductions will be taken from your earnings. Federal, state, and local income taxes, where applicable, also will be deducted. You will be reimbursed for authorized out of pocket expenses, telephone, and other travel costs, such as parking fees, bus fares, etc., while on official business travel. If hired, you will receive specific information about pay from a Census representative.
