What is the Missouri 2020 Complete Count Committee?

The Missouri 2020 Complete Count Committee is a collaboration of Missouri government, businesses, non-profits, and community groups that help to develop, recommend, and assist in the implementation of Missouri’s 2020 Census outreach strategy. Our mission is to perform all efforts possible to ensure an accurate and timely count of all persons living in Missouri in order to secure federal funding and fair representation for Missourians over the next decade. The work of the Committee complements the national effort by the US Census Bureau and the work of communities and individuals across the state to promote Census awareness and participation. Governor Mike Parson appoints all members of the Committee.

The Complete Count Committee holds quarterly meetings to receive updates from the Missouri Census Office and the U.S. Census Bureau, plan future Census outreach, and draft reports to the Governor’s Office. The Committee has several internal subcommittees advising and developing strategies on specific areas of concern regarding Census outreach and participation.Those subcommittees include: Media and Events, Government, Business and Community & Faith Based Organizations.

Governor Mike Parson established the Committee by Executive Order 18-12 on December 18, 2018.
