Census 2020 Colorado Complete Count Campaign

The State of Colorado is looking for volunteers to serve on the Colorado Complete Count Campaign to promote the 2020 Census.

Overview

The Census is a count of everyone residing in the United States on April 1, 2020. It has been mandated by the U.S. Constitution (Article 1, Section 2) since 1790 and it occurs every 10 years. The Census counts people of all ages, race, and ethnic groups. Population totals from the decennial Census determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives; the totals are also used to redraw federal and state legislative districts. The Census is also used to help determine the appropriation of federally funded programs.

Goal

The Colorado Complete Count Campaign (CCC) is a volunteer committee established to increase awareness about Census 2020 and to motivate residents in the community to respond with the result of the best, most accurate, count in Colorado.
