Attention: Coloradans seeking jobs!
The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting Coloradans to help gather census data across the state as paid census-takers. Thousands of Americans, including hundreds of Coloradans, are needed to fill these flexible, temporary, part-time positions.
As a census-taker you will be working to update address lists and conduct interviews to ensure the 2010 Census accurately reflects the make-up of the American population.
“The 2010 Census will help elected officials and local governments provide resources to the areas that need them the most. I would encourage anyone who is interested to consider working as a census-taker,” said Congressman Salazar. “Local, state, and federal policy, for both small and large Colorado communities, depends on understanding population and demographic information.”
The U.S. Constitution mandates a headcount of everyone residing in the United States to determine such things as each state’s Congressional representation and funding in local communities.
Since 1790, a census of people in the United States has happened every 10 years. The undertaking helps count people living in all 50 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
