Complete Count Committees are Forming Nationwide for the 2010 Census
Local volunteer committees driving participation in their communities
Wednesday, September 30, 2009 • Posted September 30, 2009

Complete Count Committees (CCC) are forming across the country to spread the word about the importance of the 2010 Census and to motivate every resident in their community to complete and return their 2010 Census questionnaire. Made up of state, local and tribal governments, and/or community leaders, CCCs are one of the core strategic elements of the 2010 Census. Committees often include a cross section of community representatives — including government agencies, education, business, faith-based organizations and the media — and aim to address the various racial, ethnic, cultural and geographic considerations of their communities.

Using local knowledge, expertise and influence, CCCs plan and implement census awareness campaigns that address the special characteristics of their communities. Local campaigns are designed to reach traditionally undercounted populations by stressing the importance of an accurate census count, including how data are collected and used.

Since the 1980 Census, CCCs have played a major role in raising awareness of the census among all groups and populations through various activities.

If anyone is interested in being part of the Complete Count Committee for Mason County, please contact Pattie Allen at 325-347-5823.
