Census for money
    #11822477 - 01/13/10 04:33 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Walk around to peoples' doors that don't mail in their census information, get their house hold occupancy numbers, maybe names, iono, then onto the next one, then collect dollars.

I plan on doing it.  Anybody else?  Don't want to link the census website from here, so google it...

Cool.  I missed the first test date due to sleeping in.  The next one though I'm going to and will effectively ace.

Money, money, money.  In the mean time, though....I need a job, haha.

I scored a 100% on the test, which seemed nearly impossible not to do, and was not eligible because technically I am considered a tax collector for the State of Maryland.. Lame.

No, we can't have tax collectors taking the census. People who owed taxes would avoid the tax collector end up not being counted.

If'n y'all need money, give the census guys a call!

Their number is easy enough to find.  They'll ask for zip code, type it in, they'll forward you to someone in your area to talk to about showing up for a test time.

It's probably worth it.  Make it happen y'all.  Money in da bank.

25/28 correct. = 95%.  Only 10 questions correct is passing, so I'm sure anyone from the shroomery could get a job with these people, depending on yer pasts.

They had a question asking if, in the last 10 years, I'd been on probation/parole/etc...

I'm on probation now.  So hopefully it won't come back to bite my bum.


Anyhow.  Go take a test and make some money for a few weeks.

Do it.

when the census posts jobs there really aren't any open they post them to see how many people apply so they can get an ides of how many people are searching for work. I have applied to these jobs before and completely aced there tests I have no bad background yet I never heard anything.

I was told this by someone that works for them btw

I was a census worker in 1980.

It was a great part-time job  people, when my class was first formed
most were older people who in just a short time dropped out.

So just a few of us were left to do all of Tillman County, Oklahoma
and I did most of the rural area,s.

Back then we made money by the amount and kinds of forms filled out,
when you ran across a American Indian family you hit gravy because
American Indian family had twice as many forms as rest of people.
And we got like 35 cents a mile drove.

I think it is a great idea! 

It is exactly the kind of job that government is known to provide...

It is work that's overpaid and offers nothing of value to society!

That's just stupid.  The census is required by the constitution to determine the number of reps from each state. The census is at the heart of representative democracy.

OK, so an update.

The Census bureau had me listed as a federal tax collector, which I am neither a federal employee or a tax collector. I called to get this straightened out, was told to type up a letter clarifying this and bring it to them. I do this, as well as provide a copy of my job description with the state government I work for.

I go to drop the letter and documents off, and the lady I was supposed to talk to was fired within that 24 hour period. I drop off the documents and i'm assured they will be reviewed.

I wait another week, and so response, so I call. They say everything is good to go and they'll contact me with further information. Another week goes by and I get a letter in the mail saying I have to provide documents in regards to something an FBI database search found...

No idea what this could be, I got a DUI back in 2002. So I call the Census bureau again and they said I'm ineligible because I'm a federal tax collector. Straighten that out again... Then discuss the letter I just received, and I am told to write a letter and get the court documents.

I call the court, they tell me they destroy all traffic files after three years.. I can however get a certified copy of the tickets. So I get a copy of those and provide a written explanation and statement about what occurred..

Anyone else, think this is ridiculous? I've had two other background searches done before, one when I was a substitute teacher and I worked with children directly. Another getting my current position, where I needed a badge to gain access to the circuit court and to bypass security and such. Neither of them had anything that came up.

All I wanted with this position was something for nights and weekends to supplement the income I've lost this year due to state employee furloughs and cutbacks. I work with the general public everyday, did well on their test and have a degree in economics, you'd think I'd be a prime candidate. Yet I read this article the other day:

It is not stupid to state that it does not provide anything of value to the people.

It is an overpaid government job that siphons off wealth from the rest of the economy.

These are the kind of jobs that government is creating.

Nope, what you are saying is still stupid. Census workers produce population data. The data is valuable for many purposes. Foremost of these, census data is used to determine the number of representatives each state may send to congress. The census is mandated by the constitution. Census workers have been collecting population data every ten years since 1790. If you do not value the census, then you do not value the constitution.

It is an overpaid government job

Where I live census takers make $12.50 an hour. That's barely living wage, hardly too much for dealing with all the muddy back roads, vicious dogs, no trespassing signs, and anti-government rednecks.

that siphons off wealth from the rest of the economy.

Wrong again. Aside from its constitutionally mandated primary purpose, census data is also used by local governments and private businesses. High quality population data is necessary for the efficient planning of roads and utility projects, schools and hospitals. Businesses also use the data when deciding where to build new factories.

A whole range of public and private sector organizations rely on data provided by the Census Bureau. Good census data is essential to government and private industry alike.
