Complete Count Committees

North Carolina’s goal is to ensure each and every resident of North Carolina is counted and we rely upon community partnerships and outreach to help! One way that organizations, local governments and communities can help now is by establishing their own Complete Count Committee (CCC) to help educate the public, raise awareness and promote Census participation. Creating your own CCC plays a critical role in developing partners to educate and motivate residents to participate in the 2020 Census.

The North Carolina Complete Count Commission partners with regional and local CCC to increase participation and help achieve the most accurate and complete count of North Carolina's residents in the upcoming decennial Census in 2020.
