Complete Count Committee

Complete Count Committees (CCC) are forming across the state to spread the word about the importance of the 2020 Census. Their primary goal is to motivate every resident in their community to complete the 2020 Census questionnaire. Governor Nathan Deal created the Governor's Complete Count Committee in November of 2017. 

CCCs are one of the core strategic elements of the 2020 Census. They use local knowledge, expertise and influence, to plan and put in place census awareness campaigns. These groups can be made up of any of the following: 

  • state governments
  • local or tribal governments
  • community leaders
  • someone like you

These groups are able to address the special characteristics of their communities. Local campaigns are designed to reach under-counted populations. They stress the importance of an accurate census count, including how data is collected and used.

From now until May 2020, CCCs nationwide are implementing key activities, which often include:

  • Holding events, such as a Census Day "Be Counted" Parade, that generate interest and participation.
  • Distributing census information and materials through Web sites, newsletters and at events.
  • Partnering with organizations in their communities to include census messaging in their communications.
