    Th U.S. Census Bureau launched its nationwide 2020 Census recruitment campaign to recruit and hire the nearly 500,000 people needed to ensure a fair and accurate 2020 Census. These census workers (known as enumerators) will go door to door to count those households that did not mail back their census forms in April. Encouraging people within hard-to-count neighborhoods to work for the 2020 Census can help ensure people in these communities hear from trusted voices when an enumerator comes to their door. In addition, the Census Bureau has recently received authorization to hire work authorized bilingual noncitizens - mainly to be enumerators - where the Bureau is not able to find enough citizens with the necessary language skills. 

    For more background on the Bureau's hiring process and how you can apply or help recruit people to apply, please refer to:
