The 2020 Census is a constitutional mandate to count everyone in the United States, where they live, every ten years. It will take place on April 1, 2020.  The data collected by the census determines the number of seats each state has in the US House of Representatives. It is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. For the 2020 census every household will have the option of responding online, by mail, or by phone. The census is hiring thousands of individuals from every community to assist in getting a complete and accurate count. These are temporary full or part time jobs as census takers, going out in the community where you live to collect census data. Apply on-line at 2020census.gov/jobs. For more information you can call 855-JOB-2020.
