Greater Cincinnati’s Complete Count Committee


“A complete Count Committee is a volunteer committee

established by tribal, state, and local governments and community

leaders or organizations to increase awareness and

motivate residents to respond to the 2020 Census.”

– U.S. Census Bureau 2020 Census CCC Training Manual

Greater Cincinnati’s Complete Count Committee (CCC) is a team of community and business leaders appointed by Mayor John Cranley and Commissioner Denise Driehaus to develop an outreach and awareness campaign for the 2020 Census. The CCC’s primary focus is to use every method and available resource to ensure that every resident is counted in the 2020 Census in greater Cincinnati.


The Complete Count Committee works to ensure accurate, complete, and representative data that has many benefits, including federal and state funding, future private investment planning, and congressional apportionment. Each member of the CCC is asked to:


  • Work with the CCC to develop a census complete count strategy appropriate to your audience and available resources include a plan for census education (now –April) and engagement (April-August)

  • Coordinate among CCC members to maximize resources and manpower when goals or tactics align

  • Identify hard-to-count people or geographies within your sphere of influence

  • Create a plan for census education (now –April) and engagement (April-August)

  • Some members may have additional specific requests made of them to assist the CCC



The Cincinnati Complete Count Committee is co-chaired by Mayor John Cranley, Commissioner Denise Driehaus, Bishop Bobby Hilton, and Katherine Keough-Jurs, Director, Department of City Planning, City of Cincinnati. The

CCC has four subcommittees: Government, Business, Media, and Faith-based communities, Community-based Organizations, and Education. Staff from City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County will provide support and assistance to the subcommittees.
