Complete Count Committee

What is a Complete Count Committee?

A Complete Count Committee (CCC) is a volunteer committee established by tribal, state and local governments to increase awareness about the census and motivate residents in the community to respond. The committees typically include a cross-section of community representatives from government agencies, education, business, religious organizations and the media. The CCC is charged with developing and implementing a plan designed to target the unique characteristics of the community.

Who makes up the Minneapolis Complete Count Committee?

Committee members were chosen by the Mayor and City Council. Sarah Hernandez (McKnight Foundation) and Saeed Fahia (Director of the Confederation of Somali Communities in Minnesota) are the co-chairs of the Minneapolis Complete Count Committee.

When does the Complete Count Committee meet?

The final meeting of the Minneapolis Complete Count Committee took place on May 18 (see photo above). The committee had a preliminary discussion about its efforts and the overall outreach process over the last year as the first step in producing a final report.  The Mayor and Council Member Robert Lilligren were on hand to recognize committee members for their hard work and success in achieving a 76 percent mail back participation rate for Minneapolis, up 8 percent over the 68 percent rate for Census 2000.  

Additional information about the activities of this committee (future meeting schedules, agendas and meeting summaries) will be posted here.
