Not only is the Missouri Census Bureau looking for people that can speak more than one language, they are in need of people who speak Spanish.

The Hispanic population in the area has multiplied over the past ten years and the Bureau is working on ways to communicate with the growing community.

Eduardo Crespi, a volunteer for the Missouri Census, says the Bureau isn't set up to handle the non-English speaking Latino community and is trying to recruit Hispanics to help get and accurate count.
