Census Center Needs 1,000 More Applicants

The census processing center in Jeffersonville, Indiana is still hiring.

About 25 hundred people will be hired for temporary jobs starting in February. The center is still looking for one thousand additional applications. Center director Dave Hackbarth says the jobs are in the data processing division of the 2010 census.

“They could be checking in questionnaires, they could be preparing the documents for automated processing, they could be doing some level of computer assisted coding,” he says. “It really depends on the particular requirements at the time.”

Hackbarth says hiring will start next month and the jobs will last through August.
