December 21, 1998

The U.S. Census Bureau wants to hire 500 workers in Anne Arundel County to check street address lists for the 2000 census. These temporary workers will travel through each block in their community to verify and update lists of addresses the Census Bureau has compiled.

The workers also will look for housing units that may not be readily visible, to assure that they receive census questionnaires meant for everyone.

"Our goal is to have a pool of local people who want to work on this activity and who are committed to a successful count in their neighborhood," said Philadelphia Regional Census Director Fernando E. Armstrong.

The jobs will last up to eight weeks. Workers will be paid $10 to $11.50 per hour each week. Retirees, participants in government programs and those looking for part-time or temporary work are encouraged to apply. Training will be provided.
