Census 2020 U.S. Virgin Islands Offices Open On St. Thomas and St. Croix

Education / Featured / News / Virgin Islands / October 24, 2019

The U.S. Virgin Islands Census offices opened on St. Thomas on Wednesday, Oct. 23 and on St. Croix today, Thursday, the University of the Virgin Islands announced Thursday.

Each office will support field operations during the 2020 Census, helping to ensure that everyone is counted once, only once, and in the right place.

Article 1, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution requires that an accurate count be taken of the U.S. population every 10 years. The federal government distributes more than $675 billion each year to states and communities based on Census Bureau data.

St. Thomas and St. Croix are two of the five Island Areas Census offices including American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and Guam. Each Island Area Census collects demographic, social, economic and housing characteristics, according to the release.

The University of the Virgin Islands has been tasked, since 1980, with conducting the data collection operation of the Census in the U.S. Virgin Islands. In 1988, it was designated as the U.S. Virgin Islands Census Data Center.

Census 2020 U.S. Virgin Islands is recruiting for about 400 full-time office and part-time field positions.  Applications are available via the Job Search tab on the UVI website:

The St. Thomas/St. John District 2020 Census office is located on the third floor of the former West Bay Supermarket, adjacent to the UVI golf course.  The St. Croix District 2020 Census office is located in the former Caribe Do It Center, Building No. 1, Second Floor East, 35 & 35A Castle Coakley, opposite to the Sunny Isle Shopping Center.  To reach either Census office dial 340-718-2020
