Greene County Complete Count Committee recruiting temporary workers for 2020 Census

2020 Census

As the country gears up for the 2020 Census, the Greene County Complete Count Committee is looking for temporary workers.

Across the nation, the U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting 2.7 million people to make sure every person in the nation is counted.

A Census is taken every 10 years as mandated by the U.S. Constitution. Participation in the Census is vital to communities and states, because it determines representation and funding for projects such as schools, roads and emergency services. Every year the federal government distributes more than $600 billion to states and communities based on data collected from the Census.

Temporary workers will be paid an hourly wage and will either work in the field or office. Field staff work within a designated area while office staff work at area census offices.

If you're interested in applying to be a temporary Census worker, the Greene County CCC is holding a recruitment event at the Xenia Community Library (76 E. Market Street) on October 22nd from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. 

In order to be eligible to apply, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have a Social Security Number
  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Have a valid email address
  • Complete application and answer assessment questions
  • Be registered with the Selective Service System or have a qualifying exemption, if you are a male born after Dec. 31, 1959.
  • Pass a Census-performed criminal background check
  • Commit to completing training
  • Be available to work flexible hours which may include days, evenings, and/or weekends

Most of the positions will require employees to have a valid driver's license and access to a vehicle, unless public transportation is an option. Employees much also have access to a computer with internet to complete training.

The temporary jobs last for several weeks and employees will be paid weekly.
