Camp: Census hiring distorts April jobs number

The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the Census will employ over 700,000 people by the end of May to help contact individuals who did not respond to the Census survey. 

The number of Census workers will significantly be reduced after the summer months, according to the BLS. 

The April total is comprised of 231,000 jobs from the private sector and 66,000 from Census hiring, according to the White House.
