BURR RIDGE, Ill. (December 22, 2019) – “They wanted to do this one more time before January hiring begins,” explained Library Director Debbie Albrecht. The Illinois State Library and the Illinois Complete Count Commission are asking for help publicizing the availability of census jobs.
One misconception is that the US Census Bureau is mainly hoping to hire census takers who will go door-to-door in an effort to get people to complete the 2020 Census. In reality, a wide variety of jobs are available, including office/clerical staff, recruiting assistants, enumerators, and supervisors.
Positions for the 2020 Census are located throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. The jobs offer competitive wages, which are paid weekly, as well as paid training. In addition, employees doing fieldwork are reimbursed for authorized work-related expenses such as mileage. More detailed information on specific pay rates is available at the Bureau’s Pay & Locations page. The map shows pay rates by geographic area.
Other frequently asked questions are answered on the Bureau’s FAQ page.
