WASHINGTON – The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring field representatives in areas across the country and is asking citizens for help.

The Census Bureau conducts more than 130 surveys every year.

“Our ability to conduct continuous surveys – other than the once-a-decade population count –depends on survey takers in the field and our Regional Offices are hiring these workers,” states a press release. “Even though we are gearing up to hire workers for the 2020 Census, we still need field representatives for our other ongoing surveys. This is where you can help.”

According to the release, employment benefits include flexible hours, meeting people and working outside of the office environment. It also states that field representatives perform various vital functions such as updating address lists and maps, conducting interviews with residents in assigned areas, explaining the purpose of the census interview and answering residents’ questions.

Hours of work for field positions will vary with some requiring employees to work during the day to see addresses on buildings, while others require interviewing the public usually in the evening and on weekends.
