Census 2020: About the Complete Count Committee

Published on February 21, 2020

Arlington's Complete Count Committee (CCC) is working hard behind the scenes to organize events that increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census. This volunteer group, established by the County Manager, plays an integral part in ensuring a complete and accurate count of every member of our community.  

CCC members include community-based organizations, faith-based groups, schools, businesses, local leaders and others who work with partners such as libraries, restaurants, outreach groups and others to educate and motivate residents to participate in the Census. Success of the census depends on community involvement at every level, from the U.S. Census Bureau to each one of us!
