What States Can Do To Get Out the 2020 Census Count

State-level officials can play a big and helpful role in getting out the count for the 2020 Census.

The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) recently hosted a webinar for state officials to help them get oriented and involved. “Why do states care about a federal project? Because census data will be used to determine political and economic power for a decade to come.”

Activities can include creating or joining Complete Count Committees, committing funding to census outreach or discussing with their constituents the importance of the decennial census and participation. The webinar also aims to help identify the tools officials will need to target low-response areas in their constituency and try to improve response.
