With less than six months to go until the 2020 Census, efforts are ramping up in Indiana and other states to ensure an accurate count.
A vital part of that is ensuring there are enough boots on the ground.
About 500-thousand census takers are needed across the country.
The Governor’s Census Liaison Carol Rogers contends it’s a great opportunity for students, retirees and workers.
Rogers notes that census-taking positions do require flexible schedules, a valid driver’s license and access to a vehicle, as well as internet access and an email account.
Hiring already is under way and will continue through next spring.
