The U.S. Census Bureau is seeking employees with a wide range of skills to help carry out and then evaluate the results of the 2020 Decennial Census, and to serve in other critical positions. The census is the foremost source of information on the U.S. population and is the basis for political representation and for how tax dollars are allocated over the following decade. Along with a broad range of social and economic surveys, the Census Bureau also produces the nation’s official population estimates and is responsible for international work around the globe.
We are looking for qualified U.S. citizens with backgrounds in demography, sociology, mathematics, statistics, or related fields. Experience with demographic analysis, population estimates and projections, survey research, and quantitative data analysis of large data sets is a plus. Candidates should have good communication skills and be able to work as part of a team.
Successful candidates may be hired at the GS 7 to GS 14 levels. See opm.gov for salary information for the Washington, D.C. metro area. The jobs are located in Suitland, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. that is accessible by mass transit (the use of which is subsidized for Census employees).
