Interested in becoming a census worker?

The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting thousands of people across the country to assist with the 2020 Census count. Part-time positions are available all year long. The pay for Johnson County is $17 per hour.

Applicants can qualify for both field and office positions. The office positions, which are more limited, will be located in area census offices. The role of these offices is to recruit, select, hire, train, manage, and pay all office and field staff who work within the designated boundaries of the geographic territory assigned to the office.

The Census Bureau is in the process of opening 248 offices to support the 2020 Census. As these offices become ready for business, they are listed at 2020census.gov/jobs/pay-and-locations.

In Kansas, the Census Bureau needs to recruit more than 20,000 workers.
