The Committee meets quarterly to receive updates from the California Complete Count – Census 2020 Office and from the U.S. Census Bureau, and to draft and approve advisory reports that are due to the Governor’s Office biannually. In addition, the Committee established three internal Working Groups to conduct focused discussions and develop recommended strategies on specific areas of concern regarding Census outreach and participation.

Once each decade, the U.S. Census Bureau attempts to count every person in the United States. The next enumeration will be April 1, 2020 and will be the first to rely heavily on online responses. California leaders have invested $187.2 million toward a statewide outreach and communication campaign.
