The U.S. Census Bureau will shut half of its dozen regional offices with expected savings of $15 million to $18 million annually. The offices to close are located in Boston, Charlotte, Dallas, Detroit, Kansas City, and Seattle, The Washington Post reported.

The move will not cut the jobs of any of the 7,200 field workers who collect statistics on households and the economy, Census Bureau Director Robert Groves told the Post.

However, some 330 supervisors will be called on to work from home, relocate or retire. When all six offices are closed by the end of 2012, 115 to 130 positions will be trimmed from the Census payroll of 15,000, the Post reported.

The Census Bureau has been under pressure to cut costs before the next Census in 2020. The Census, which is mandated by the Constitution, has plans to include the Internet in its tallying method in 2020, the Post reported.
