Complete Count Committee
A successful census count in Prince George’s County is vital to our community’s well-being and overall quality of life. Prince George’s County is supporting the U.S. Census Bureau’s data collection activities with a Complete Count Committee (CCC).
On September 18, 2018, the Prince George’s County Council approved Council Resolution (CR-35-2018) expressing support for the establishment of the CCC. The CCC is a collaboration between the County Council, the County Executive, and the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) to make all reasonable efforts to obtain an accurate count of all segments of the populations of Prince George’s County.
CCCs are volunteer committees established by tribal, state, and local governments and community leaders or organizations. CCCs use local knowledge, influence, and resources to educate communities and promote the census through local, targeted outreach efforts. Their sole purpose is to maximize participation and response rates by increasing awareness throughout the 2020 census.
To promote and facilitate a complete and accurate Census 2020 count of every resident in Prince George’s County, focusing on education and public outreach to all residents.
- Develop a locally targeted outreach campaign to promote Census 2020 awareness and participation among all Prince George’s County residents.
- Increase the Census response rate, especially within historically undercounted segments of the population.
The committee will be comprised of a chairperson and several subcommittee work groups. Each work group will target a specific population sector, with an emphasis on “hard-to-count” populations.
