- These positions provide the perfect opportunity to earn some extra income while helping your community. The results of the 2020 Census will help determine each state’s representation in Congress, as well as how certain funds are spent for schools, hospitals, roads, and more. This is your chance to play a part in history and help ensure that everyone in your community is counted! Some positions require evening and/or weekend shifts because you must be available to interview members of the public when they are at home. In addition, most 2020 Census jobs require employees to have:
- A valid driver’s license and access to a vehicle, unless public transportation is readily available
- Access to a computer with internet and an email account (to complete training)

- Have a valid Social Security number.
- Be a U.S. citizen.
- Have a valid email address
- Complete an application and answer assessment questions. (Some assessment questions are available in Spanish. However, an English proficiency test may also be required.)

- Pass a Census-performed criminal background check and a review of criminal records, including fingerprinting.
