The U.S. Census Bureau is looking for Colorado workers to fill thousands of temporary positions this winter and coming spring, in time for Census Day on April 1, 2020.

Conducted every 10 years, the Census is a critical tool in determining federal funding, political representation and population statistics. Most people should receive a notice to respond to the government’s Census survey by April 1. The Census will conduct door-to-door visits between May and July for those who don’t respond.

Positions with the U.S. Census include Census takers, field supervisors, clerks and office supervisors. Some jobs require night and weekend availability.

Census takers will be selected starting in January.

The Census recently announced that Colorado workers can expect a pay increase from the rates initially advertised. As of Dec. 1, hourly wages for Census jobs in Colorado range from $16 to $22.50.
