2010 Census coming

Posted by: VHFA on 1/6/2010

A complete and accurate population count is vital in helping determine Vermont's housing needs, so VHFA encourages everyone to complete the questionnaire when it arrives in the mail.

Census population counts help determine how $400 billion in federal funds are distributed to communities across the country. They're also used to determine the shape of legislative and local government districts.

On a different note, the Census Bureau's looking for hundreds of temporary workers. Most of the jobs work in the field and pay $13.50 an hour.

Workers are needed to drop off Census questionnaires at homes in March, and conduct face-to-face interviews in late-spring and early-summer with Vermonters who fail to return their questionnaires by mail.

To apply, applicants must take a 30-minute multiple-choice test.
