The Census Bureau is scrambling to hire enough people in New Hampshire, which probably shouldn’t come as a surprise in a state filled with “help wanted” signs.
With the April 1 census less than three months away, only half of the openings in Merrimack County have been filled, said Lisa Moore, assistant regional census manager in New York, which covers the Northeast.
“There are about 1,500 needed, and we’re about 50% recruited in the county as a whole,” she said.
That’s actually pretty good compared to most of New Hampshire. Statewide, Moore said, “We’re about 37% recruited, so we need to recruit 13,000 people.”
Although census day is April 1, most of these jobs will run from mid-May through end of July, following up on places that have not filed questionnaires online or via the mail.
The U.S. Constitution requires the federal government to run a census every 10 years, counting every person in the country. Those numbers are used for a myriad of purposes, from allocating federal spending to deciding how many people represent each state in Congress.
