2020 Census: Making Our Community Count

February 8, 2019

The decennial census is one of the most important events when it comes to ensuring that our neighborhoods are represented and receive the proper amount of resources. With the 2020 Census less than a year away, the US Census Bureau has begun opening offices and recruiting staff in support of the effort.

Locally, the Los Angeles Regional Census Center is the operational hub that will support 43 local Area Census Offices throughout the region, seven of which are in Los Angeles County. At peak, these Area Census Offices should have approximately 10+ managers, 30+ Support Staff, and 300+ Field Staff. These positions offer excellent pay, flexible hours, paid training, and temporary positions. 

If you are interested in these positions, you can apply for each of them using one form found on www.2020census.gov/jobs. There you will find the application, along with resources to help you successfully navigate the application process. You can also apply by phone by calling (855) JOB-2020.
