The U.S. Census Bureau is required by the U.S. Constitution to conduct a count of all persons. The City of Duluth is committed to ensuring every resident is counted. Federal and state funding is allocated to communities, and decisions are made on matters of national and local importance based, in part, on census data. Census data helps determine how many seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives and is necessary for the accurate and fair redistricting of state legislative seats, county and city councils, and voting districts. Information from the 2020 Census and American Community Survey are vital tools for economic development and increased employment. The information collected by the census is confidential and protected by law.

Census Complete Count Committees (CCCs) help assure a complete count in the upcoming Census 2020 so our community receives its fair share of congressional and legislative representation as well as our proper share of federal and state funding for programs that serve our area. Duluth's CCC is comprised of highly regarded representatives and trusted voices from different sectors of our community. The CCC will plan and implement focused projects that help to increase the response rate of our residents.

Meetings are open to the public to observe, but Committee members are invited to participate by the Mayor and meetings are working groups for Committee members.

Next meeting: TBD
