OKLAHOMA CITY -- The U.S Census Bureau is hiring.

The Census Bureau does a housing survey for the Department of Urban Housing Development every two years.

This year Oklahoma City was selected as one of 25 cities where the Census wants some additional information about the housing market in OKC.

According to the Assistant Regional Director of the Denver office of the U.S. Census, Vicki McIntire, the bureau is hiring two kinds of workers.

The work-from-home jobs pay between $11.95 per hour and $16.73 per hour, plus mileage.

"We're hiring people to knock on doors from April to August of this year," she said. "We are also hiring some temporary supervisors who will be supervising the people knocking on the doors." 

The Black Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Oklahoma City recently posted the Census positions in their e-newsletter.

There is quite a bit of interest in central northeast Oklahoma City.

They want to make sure the African American community is counted.

"We have needs in the predominantly black part of Oklahoma City that may be different from other parts of the city," Black Chamber President Sharron Jackson said. "What they need to know nationally, the condition of the housing because that is how they will direct federal dollars."
