North side leaders have unique way of getting residents to take 2020 Census

CHICAGO, Ill. — The U.S. Census Bureau said it has reached half of its recruiting goal in Wisconsin, but still needs more than 24,500 people to apply for the census taker positions throughout the state.

According to a news release, census takers will be hired to work in their own communities in order to go door-to-door to collect responses from those who do not respond to the 2020 Census online, by phone or by mail.

The release said the job pays in the $17 to $24 per hour range and has flexible hours and weekly paychecks.

Census recruiting events will happen starting Sunday until Feb. 2. Read more about the application process here.
