CLEVELAND — The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring hundreds of people in Northeast Ohio to help count the 2020 population. The agency is kicking off a national hiring week, hosting events throughout the country to find eligible workers.

If you’re hired, you will be one of the people tasked to count the entire population of the United States.

The agency needs 500,000 workers throughout the country.

The positions are part-time and flexible. Since the census is only counted once every decade, the job would be temporary.

The bureau pays anywhere from $16 to $18.50 an hour. A resume is not required and applicants must be at least 18 years of age.

Officials with the bureau said the job is ideal for seasonal workers, students, retirees, and temporary workers looking for their next gig.
