In 2020, the Census will be conducted primarily online for the first time. Like past e-government efforts, this will likely impact libraries and libraries' technology resources as staff work to assist people in participating in the Census. The 2020 Census also presents an opportunity to increase public awareness and use of Census data. We are advocating for a fair, accurate, and inclusive Census that recognizes the roles libraries will play in this vital civic effort.
The Census Bureau will be hiring 500,000 temporary employees across the country to help carry out the 2020 Census count, including census takers, office staff, recruiting assistants, and supervisory staff.
For those with criminal records, the Census Bureau makes hiring decisions on a case-by-case basis, following a background check that includes fingerprinting and a records search.
Non-citizens may be hired by the Census Bureau for temporary census jobs when a qualified citizen is not available provided that they are work-authorized.
Census data are used to make decisions about how and where to spend more than $800 billion each year for programs and services that communities rely on.
