The National Processing Center (NPC) is the U.S. Census Bureau’s primary center for mail processing, survey processing, data capture, and imaging/scanning. We have two Contact Centers that respond to caller inquiries and conduct telephone interviews.
We collect and process monthly, quarterly, and annual surveys which include demographic data, population statistics, economic indicators, housing statistics, business, construction, and foreign trade information, as well as others. Some of the censuses we engage in are: the Decennial Census, Economic Census, and the Census of Governments.
We have a flexible labor force, with the ability to rapidly expand and contract in size — from 1,700 to more than 5,000 employees — to meet changing work requirements and customers' needs.
