Complete Count Committee
The five jurisdictions of Yuma County recognize that an accurate Census count can’t be achieved without local involvement and support. The Complete Count Committee is a core strategic element of the Census Bureau to promote the Census. Therefore, a county-wide Complete Count Committee has been established to plan and implement locally-based outreach campaigns that raise awareness of the Census. The Committee membership represents trusted voices in the community and is charged with ensuring an accurate and complete count of all of Yuma County’s residents.
What are Complete Count Committees?
Complete Count Committees are established by county and local governments, community leaders and volunteers to increase awareness about the 2020 Census and to motivate residents in their communities to complete and return their census forms.
What kind of work will they do?
Local elected officials and community leaders plan and execute an outreach plan.
CCC Members will also perform a direct contact role with members of their organizations, or in the communities they serve; recruit volunteers to assist in their efforts; and help recruit trusted voices to apply for Census jobs.
