October 1, a new Area Census Office opened in Overland Park, ahead of the 2020 Census. The office will serve as the operational hub for the Constitutionally mandated decennial census and will begin hiring thousands of staff across Kansas in the next several months.
The Census is the largest peacetime deployment of civil servants across the country. The census officially begins on April 1, 2020 and for the first time ever it will have an online option, which will make filling out the form safe and easy for many Kansas residents.
The Area Census Office will be located at 7700 W 119th St, Overland Park, KS 66213, at the rear of the Rosanna Square shopping center.
