By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Next year's census count could bring more than a thousand jobs to people in Southwest Georgia.  

Monday, a representative from the Census Bureau spoke before the Dougherty county commission about plans for the 2010 Census count. He said the college population will help add to the numbers for Dougherty County.

He also more than a thousand jobs will be created by the census count.    

 "There are going to be about 1,500 to 1,700 jobs for the area, not necessarily all out of Albany, but they will work out of Albany and the counties that will be a part of Southwest Georgia where those jobs will be available," said Census 2010 Specialist Fer-Rell M. Malone, Sr.  

A community Census kick-off will be held at the end of next month to bring awareness to the public about the importance of participating in the census.
