Census Jobs

COVID-19 Updates

Based on continuing assessments, guidance from federal, state and local health authorities, the U.S. Census Bureau is suspending 2020 Census field operations until more updates are available. The Census Bureau is taking this step to help protect the health and safety of the American public, Census Bureau employees, and everyone who will go through the hiring process for temporary census taker positions.

2020 Census field offices are open and operating with reduced staff. If you are trying to contact us via telephone, we will do our best to take your call.

The Census Bureau continues to evaluate all 2020 Census field operations, and will communicate any further updates as soon as possible.
