Complete Count Committees

The goal of the 2020 Census is to count everyone once, only once and in the right place. Participation by everyone in the Census is necessary for an accurate and fair allocation of resources and funding over the next decade. State and local governments, community based organizations, faith-based groups, schools, businesses, the media, and others can play a key role in educating and motivating residents to participate in the 2020 Census.

To encourage a complete and accurate count, the U.S. Census Bureau has established the Complete Count Committees (CCC) program. A CCC is a volunteer committee comprised of local government and community leaders or organizations. CCCs serve as local “census ambassadors” that seek to increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census.

CCCs are of critical importance in communities that are traditionally hard to survey because they include trusted community leaders. These leaders have a greater ability to connect with and engage area residents. Additionally, they can help overcome cultural, economic, linguistic, or technological barriers to census participation. The map below highlights anticipated 2020 Census participation levels in the Miami Valley.

In the Miami Valley, CCCs have formed in Greene, Miami, and Montgomery counties. CCCs are intended to be customizable to reflect the area’s unique make up and needs. As such, each of the Region’s CCCs has a different composition and approach to increase Census awareness and to target hard-to-count populations.

A complete and accurate count throughout the Miami Valley is essential; therefore other interested parties are encouraged to establish their own CCCs to make sure that everyone in the Region is accounted for.  For additional information on Complete Count Committees, please visit: https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/decennial-census/2020-census/complete_count.html
