Census Bureau Announces Job Openings for 2020 Census in New York

The U.S. Census Bureau is accepting applications for temporary field positions for the 2020 Census in every county of Upstate and Western New York.


The 2020 Census Jobs website allows applicants to apply for a range of positions, including recruiting assistants, census field supervisors and census takers by completing a single application online. Opportunities are available in the entire state and offer flexible work hours, including daytime, evenings and weekends.

Available jobs:

  • Recruiting assistants ($18.50 per hour) travel throughout geographic areas to visit with community-based organizations, attend promotional events and conduct other recruiting activities.
  • Census field supervisors ($18.50 per hour) conduct fieldwork to support and conduct on-the-job training for census takers, and/or to follow-up in situations where census takers have confronted issues such as not gaining entry to restricted areas.
  • Census takers ($17.00 per hour) work in the field. Some field positions require employees to work during the day to see addresses on buildings. Other field positions require interviewing the public, so employees must be available to work when people are usually at home such as in the evening and on weekends.
