Minnesota operations for 2010 Census launched with opening of first office

The office that opened Tuesday in downtown St. Paul is the first of seven that will eventually operate throughout the state in preparation for the 2010 U.S. Census.

An office in Duluth also opens this month. The others — in Minneapolis, Rochester, Shakopee, Anoka and Bemidji — will open in 2009. Six managers will be hired in each location.

The St. Paul office will have about 50 administrative staff members — and about 1,000 workers overall — as it counts people in St. Paul and surrounding East Metro counties.

Address canvassers, who go out in the field early to prepare for the actual count in 2010, will operate out of the St. Paul office until their local offices open next year.
