U.S. Census Bureau brings jobs to Iowa

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - As many companies lay people off, the Department of Commerce is bringing more jobs to Iowa.

The U.S. Census Bureau is getting ready for the 2010 Census and needs people to help with their operations.

On Tuesday, the Bureau held an open house to kick off the 2010 Census. They are hiring thousands Iowans to help obtain information for government statistics.

"You know a lot of people are loosing their jobs and secondly a lot of folks find that this is a fantastic civic opportunity. They feel this is something they can do to help out the community in these struggling times," Sydnee Chattin-Reynolds said.
