2020 Census Jobs

Census employment dates range from March to July 2020. 

Recruitment Assistance:

An accurate count helps to ensure your community gets its future share of federal and state funds it needs, and your citizenry is equally represented in the legislative process.

Positions needed ($18-$21/hour):  

  • Recruiting assistants travel throughout geographic areas to visit with community-based organizations, attend promotional events and conduct other recruiting activities.
  • Office operations supervisors assist in the management of office functions and day-to-day activities in one or more functional areas, including payroll, personnel, recruiting, field operations and support. 
  • Clerks perform various administrative and clerical tasks to support various functional areas, including payroll, personnel, recruiting, field operations and support. 
  • Census field supervisors conduct fieldwork to support and conduct on-the-job training for census takers, and/or to follow-up in situations where census takers have confronted issues such as not gaining entry to restricted areas. 
  • Census takers work in the field. Some field positions require employees to work during the day to see addresses on buildings. Other field positions require interviewing the public, so employees must be available to work when people are usually at home such as in the evening and on weekends. 

Every year for at least the past seven years, the Census Bureau has had to hire out-of-state workers to complete their various surveys in North Dakota. Census 2020 is too important to your community in North Dakota to take for granted!
