Census 2020

Cameron County Complete County Committee

Cameron County is excited to announce the partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census! As a partner, we’ll be working to ensure that our community is accurately represented.

What is a Complete Count Committee (CCC)?

Complete Count Committees (CCC) consists of volunteer committees established by tribal, state, and local governments and community leaders or organizations to increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census. CCCs serve as state and local “census ambassador” groups that play an integral part in ensuring a complete and accurate count of the community in the Census. Success of the census depends on community involvement at every level. The US Census Bureau cannot conduct the 2020 Census alone. The Cameron County Complete Count Committee (CCC) utilizes local knowledge, influence, and resources to educate communities and promote the census through locally based, targeted outreach efforts.

Why is this important?

Because undercounted residents have been denied an equal voice in our government, this would deprive our communities of federal and state funding. Key infrastructure projects including schools, health care, housing, transportation and community development would be affected. When community members are informed, they are more likely to respond to the census. Through collaborative partnerships, the U.S. Census Bureau and community leaders can reach the shared goal of counting everyone in 2020.
