Work for the U.S. Census Bureau
The U.S. Census Bureau recruits thousands of workers in Missouri and other states for temporary jobs to support the 2020 Census effort. Jobs offer flexible schedules, pay $13.50-$19.50 an hour and require no related experience. You must be at least 18 years old, have a valid Social Security number, and be a United States citizen to be eligible.
If you are interested in a temporary job to support census outreach, visit the Census Bureau Jobs Website.
Get Involved with a Local Complete Count Committee
Find your local complete count committee through the Census Bureau’s interactive map of 2020 Census Complete Count Committees.
Start a Complete Count Committee in Your Neighborhood
Complete Count Committees can be formed by the highest official in local government or other community leaders outside of government. Local complete count committees are key to informing community members about the importance of the 2020 census. When community members are informed, they are more likely to respond to the census. Through collaborative partnerships, the U.S. Census Bureau, Missouri Complete Count Committee and community leaders can reach the shared goal of counting EVERYONE in 2020. The U.S. Census Bureau provides all of the information you need to start a complete count committee in your neighborhood.
