The California Complete Count Committee

The California Complete Count Committee (Committee) is an advisory panel that helps to develop, recommend, and assist in the administration of a Census outreach strategy to encourage full participation in the 2020 Census. Established by Executive Order B-49-18 on April 13, 2018, the Committee’s members work to recommend strategies to increase the count in their respective communities. The members are appointed by the California Governor, including one designee chosen by the Speaker of the State Assembly and one designee chosen by the State Senate President pro Tempore.

At each of the Committee’s quarterly meetings, members come together to listen to updates from the California Complete Count Office, to hear updates from the U.S. Census Bureau, and to draft reports with their advisory recommendations that are due to the Governor’s Office twice per year. The California Census Office supports quarterly meetings of the Committee and its working groups.

The Committee has three internal Working Groups to conduct focused inquiry and discussion and develop recommended strategies on specific areas of concern regarding Census outreach and participation.

  • Access and Outreach
  • Housing
  • Content and Citizenship & Trust and Confidentiality (merged during the Dec. 3, 2018 meeting)


The Committee brings together leaders from business, non-profit, and state entities to share their individual and collective knowledge, expertise, and influence to encourage all communities, particularly hard-to-count communities to participate in the Census 2020.
