U.S. Census - 2010

It's in Our Hands - the 2010 U.S. Census

The 2010 Census will define who we are as a nation. Taken every 10 years, the census affects political representation and directs the allocation of billions of dollars in government funding. College students have been historically hard to count, and Rensselaer, as a Census College Partner, is committed to make sure that every college student is counted in 2010. Representatives from the Census Bureau will be in the Mueller Center Lobby, from March 22 through April 19, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., to answer any questions about the 2010 Census.

Also, the US Census Bureau would like to hire RPI students to assist with the 2010 Census as Census Takers. Check out the Census Job Opportunities" web site, or call 1-866-861-2010 to register to take the test for census employment! The next test dates on campus are February 24 & 26, and March 3, 5, 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26 & 31.
