2020 Census News
Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau sets out to get a head count of everyone residing in the United States. The Census counts people of all ages, races, and ethnic groups to get an accurate measure of the U.S. population. These population totals are used to determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives, how federal and state legislative districts are redrawn, and the appropriation of federally funded programs.
For Colorado, an accurate census count is essential. Federal state and local governments, businesses, nonprofits, and foundations rely on Census data to allocate funding, understand how the community is changing, and promote economic development.
The State Complete Count Campaign (CCC) is a volunteer committee established to increase awareness about Census 2020; respond to the population's questions and concerns about the Census; focus resources on hard-to-count areas and populations; and to motivate residents in the community to respond with the best, most accurate, count in Colorado.
