Census seeks citizen workers

Contact: Kris Aoki, Planner, 970-328-8752

The U.S. Census Bureau is seeking Eagle County citizens to apply as temporary, part-time census takers for the 2010 Census. These short-term jobs offer pay starting at $16/hour, flexible hours, paid training and reimbursement for authorized work-related expenses, such as mileage incurred while conducting census work.

Census takers will help locate households and conduct brief personal interviews with residents. All census takers must be able to speak English, but people who have bilingual skills are encouraged to apply in Eagle County. To become a census taker, you must meet the following qualifications:

  • You are a U.S. citizen, a legal permanent resident or a non-citizen with an appropriate work visa and
    you possess a bilingual skill for which there are no available qualified citizens;
  • You are at least 18 years old;
  • You have a valid Social Security number;
  • You take a written test of basic skills (administered by the Census and available at local locations);
  • You have a valid driver’s licenses (for field jobs only);
  • You pass a background check; and
  • You commit to four days of training. You will be paid for training days at a regular hourly rate.
