    The U.S. Census Bureau is currently hiring for the 2020 Census. The positions are temporary with varying pay ranges. For Census Takers, the pay starts at $17.00/hour in Crawford County, plus 57.5 cents a mile reimbursed for mileage. The Census Bureau pays weekly, has paid training, and gives hiring preference to veterans. 

    By working for the Census Bureau, our community has a special opportunity to help make the 2020 Census an accurate and complete count. There are so many reasons our nation needs to be counted completely and accurately. The count happens every 10 years with the decennial census, which influences how more than $675 billion from more than 100 federal programs are distributed to states and localities each year. Here’s some of what the census numbers effect:
    • Medicaid.
    • School lunch programs.
    • Community development grants.
    • Road and school construction.

    • Medical services.
    • Business locations.
