My Two Census

Formerly the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 US Census, and currently an opinion blog that covers all things political, media, foreign policy, globalization, and culture…but sometimes returning to its census/demographics roots.

We asked the Census Bureau one very clear question and received an ambiguous answer…

The Question from

Can you please confirm or deny that most 2010 Census jobs will last 1-3 weeks as opposed to 6 weeks-8 months?

(which has been stated by elected officials…)

The Census Bureau’s response:

Job duration is dependent on the amount of work available in a particular location.  These temporary, part-time jobs can last up to several weeks.  However, length of service is highly variable.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to give me a call or send me a note.
