The Constitutionally-mandated 2020 Census is underway and the US Department of Commerce’s Bureau of the Census is hiring hundreds of people temporarily in Arlington and the rest of northern Virginia over the next few months to help carry it out. The principal position available is that of Enumerator. The pay is good ($25-$27.50/hour in Arlington) and the hours are flexible.
Additionally, there are many good reasons for our community to ensure that Census participation is as complete as possible, since the results impact Congressional representation and federal funding for education, healthcare, infrastructure, and other areas. Further, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) collected by the Census is confidential under Title 13 of the US Code. PII is never shared with other government agencies or any other entity or person.
At this time, all field positions available with the Arlington Area Census Office with the decennial Census are considered remote.
