The nation's largest civil rights coalition is urging Chicago residents to apply for temporary jobs with the U.S. Census Bureau.

The Leadership Conference on Civil Rights Education Fund says census workers will play an important role in making sure their communities are fully counted in the 2010 census.

The census is conducted once every decade and counts the U.S. population. It determines the number of seats states have in the House of Representatives and affects the apportionment of political districts. It also affects the distribution of funding for schools, roads and neighborhood improvements.

Available positions include census takers, crew leaders, supervisors and administrative personnel.
