From Motion by Supervisor Hilda L. Solis (March 14, 2017) – click here for full motion.
An accurate decennial Census is extremely critical to California, to ensure fair political representation and equitable receipt of federal funds. Population counts determine which states gain or lose representation in Congress and also determine the federal funding allocations to communities. To achieve an accurate assessment of the population living within the nation’s borders, the U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the nation’s population every 10 years.
The goal of the 2020 Census for Los Angeles County is to count all residents. The data obtained from the Census can help shape policy and funding decisions for health care, social services, transportation, workforce development and other critical needs. In Fiscal Year 2014-15, the County’s departments expended $2.12 billion, received from the top five largest distributing federal departments including Health and Human Services, Agriculture, Education, Labor, and Transportation, on federal grant programs that use population and/or income data as a factor. It is of utmost importance that the County ensures that all its residents are counted so that it receives a fair allocation of resources to meet our public service needs and priorities.
Complete Count Committee Mission
The mission of the Los Angeles County Complete Count Committees (CCCs) is to promote and facilitate a complete and accurate 2020 Census count of residents Countywide focusing on education and outreach to the County’s Hard-to-Survey (HTS) populations.
Complete Count Committee Goal
The goal is to increase Los Angeles County’s 2020 Census response rate and avoid an undercount of HTS populations that depend on critical federally funded programs.
Complete Count Committee (CCC) Structure
On March 14, 2017, the Board of Supervisors instructed the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to initiate the 2020 Census Planning Committee and the formation of CCCs. The Planning Committee will be led by the CEO’s Office and includes County departments, other government entities and stakeholders that will direct the goals and actions of the CCCs and CCC Subcommittees. The CCCs and CCC Subcommittees will create, implement and work collaboratively in developing a plan of action to target HTS populations.
