More than 8 million people will be eligible to apply for a government job, but those who can’t are still eligible for government assistance, according to the 2020 census.
It will take place from Jan. 1 to Feb. 15, 2020.
The census, which is being run by the Census Bureau, will measure the number of people living in each of the 100 U.S. census tracts that make up the country.
The bureau has said it hopes the census will help determine the nation’s future population.
That would allow the bureau to better predict how the country will grow and to determine the best ways to increase government revenue and help pay for services, including public education and roads and bridges.
It will be the first census since the last one in 2011.
