The 2020 Census started on January 21, 2020, in Toksook Bay, Alaska. This once-a-decade population count determines how much funding our communities receive for local services, provides data that inform businesses that grow our economy, and helps determine our state’s legislative districts.
Complete Count Committees (CCCs) are volunteer committees that increase awareness about the importance of the census and motivate residents to respond. Committee members represent a cross section of each community, including government agencies; tribes; education, business, nonprofit, and faith-based organizations; and the media.
The U.S. Census Bureau will hire 1,000 Alaskans to staff area census offices, partner with communities, and conduct field work, including counting, or enumeration. Click here to learn more about 2020 Census Recruitment.

We need trusted community leaders to help educate Alaskans about the importance of the Census and to engage, encourage, and ensure self-response and participation.
In the digital age of high volumes and multiple sources of information, compounded by distrust of unfamiliar information sources, local voices of leadership are critical to achieving an accurate count in 2020.
