Once every decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States. The next Census occurs in April 2020.
This website is for Ohioans to have practical resources about the Census to share within their communities. Governor Mike DeWine, Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted and Director of Development Lydia Mihalik are determined to make sure that every individual has a voice in the 2020 Census.
“It’s important that every Ohioan is counted. We want to ensure our state receives the appropriate amount of federal funding to help us support our communities, schools, public safety resources, and to improve our roads.” -Governor Mike DeWine
Earn Extra Income While Helping Your Community
The U.S. Census Bureau is hiring for a variety of temporary jobs throughout the state! The jobs include Census takers, recruiting assistance, office staff and more. Pay rates in Ohio range from $14.00 to $23.50 an hour and feature flexible hours- including evenings and weekends.
If you receive help from any Ohio assistance programs, such as HEAP, PIPP, HWAP, EPP and CSBG, your Census income will not affect your assistance or be used to determine your eligibility. Development excludes the income as a countable income for these programs because of the importance of filling Census positions.
