Out of a target of more than 3,000 applicants in Washington, Carter and Sullivan counties, the U.S. Census Bureau has recruited about half of the temporary employees it’s hoping to pick up in advance of the 2020 census.
About 83% of people living in Washington County responded to the 2010 census.
About one thousand dollars.
June Iljana, partnership/media specialist for the Philadelphia Regional Census Center, said Tuesday “a very strong recruiting effort is underway in Washington County for temporary paid Census workers.”
Gov. Bill Lee has appointed former Johnson City Mayor David Tomita to serve on a 38-member committee working on the 2020 census in Tennessee.
