What is a Complete Count Committee?
Complete Count Committees (CCC) are volunteer committees established by tribal, state, and local governments and community leaders or organizations to increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census. CCCs serve as state and local “census ambassador” groups that play an integral part in ensuring a complete and accurate count of the community in the 2020 Census. The success of the census depends on community involvement at every level. The U.S. Census Bureau cannot conduct the 2020 Census alone.
Why it Matters.
CCCs speak the language of and know the pulse of its community, therefore establishing an information highway that even the internet cannot rival—neighbor informing neighbor.
The CCCs will help ensure an accurate 2020 Census count.
The CCCs gain valuable knowledge about the census process at the local level and develop a plan to impart that knowledge to each and every household as only neighbors and fellow stakeholders can do.
The CCCs help maximize participation and response rates by increasing awareness throughout the 2020 Census.
