The U.S. Census Bureau opened its Jefferson County office for the 2010 census, and workers will verify addresses next week in advance of the population count.
Census counts are taken every 10 years. Results are used in different ways which includes determining the number of members of Congress each state receives, and how federal dollars are given out to local governments.
Residents won't receive census forms until March 2010.
Another 1,200 to 1,500 part-time workers will conduct field operations, he said. They will be among the ones who, beginning next month, handle the task of matching up addresses in north Alabama with updated lists that have been received by the census bureau.
Information about the temporary census jobs can be found at www.census.gov/hrd/
The Census Bureau is expected to hire more than a million people nationwide.
