2010 Census begins soon

Friday, January 22, 2010

Every 10 years, a census of the population of the United States is conducted. The results help determine how federal funds are spent in communities on things like roads, parks, and other public services, as well representation in government. Census takers help to make sure that everyone in the community is counted.

A 2010 Census job offers a lot: good pay, flexible hours, paid training, and the chance to work independently in your own community. But there's more, you'll also be earning a place in history, as well as giving something back to your community.

2010 Census positions are temporary. Conducting the census is a huge undertaking and it requires us to fill a wide variety of positions. For the 2010 Census, thousands of census takers are needed for temporary jobs. These employees conduct interviews with community residents. Most positions require a valid driver's license and use of a vehicle.

Census taker schedules typically include from 20 to 40 hours of work per week. These positions require interviewing the public, so workers must be available to work when people are usually home, such as in the evening and on weekends. Applicants will be required to take an employment test and provide proof of eligibility.

Census jobs offer good pay, which varies by location. Also, census takers are reimbursed for authorized work-related expenses, such as mileage. For more information, check with your local Census Office, visit our jobs web site a www. 2010censusjobs.gov, or call 1-866-861-2010.

The local Census Office is located 
on Sergeant Road in Sioux City 51106, 
and the office phone number is 712-202-1660
