Counting people means hiring people.
And this is a good thing for Cincinnati, as the US Census Bureau (USCB) has announced 1,000 job openings for carrying out Cincinnati's 2010 census.
"This is an excellent opportunity for 1,000 Cincinnatians to get a good quality job that will give them valuable future job skills and to be part of improving our community,” says Mayor Mark Mallory.
Mayor Mallory has a history of vigorous engagement with the census process.
After discovering 22,000 residents who were overlooked and challenging the 2006 census, Mayor Mallory is being proactive in 2009.
In order to ensure a comprehensive, accurate 2010 census, Mallory has launched a 100 member Census Complete Count Committee.
At the national level, Mayor Mallory is chairing the US Conference of Mayors' 2010 Census Task Force.
“The US Census Bureau's Cincinnati office is in the midst of an intense recruitment drive to hire office and field staff from across the Cincinnati area,” says George Conner, Cincinnati Census Office Manager.
Placement testing is currently underway at the local office on Linn Street in the West End.
