Pay Rates Increased in Missouri for 2020 Census Jobs:

MISSOURI – The U.S. Census Bureau is recruiting for thousands of workers for temporary jobs available in communities across Missouri in advance of the 2020 Census.

The 2020 Census Jobs website is now accepting applications: 2020Census.gov/jobs.

Pay rates in Missouri have increased, with a range from $17.00 to $23.50 per hour.  Pay rates vary by position and location. 

Applicants will be placed in an applicant pool for 2020 Census positions in which they qualify for as jobs become available in their area.

The Census Bureau needs to hire about 500,000 census takers across the country in 2020. In order to meet this goal, the Census Bureau is recruiting now. Census takers count people that do not respond to the 2020 Census online, by phone or by mail.

Census taker positions provide an opportunity for people to earn extra income while helping their community. The results of the 2020 Census will determine each state’s representation in Congress, as well as how public funds are spent for schools, hospitals, roads and more. The positions offer flexible hours, so even someone with a full-time job can work as a census taker. These jobs are expected to last about six to eight weeks.

The Census Bureau also has current temporary positions for recruiting assistants and office positions.
