Presentation tonight on census outreach plans & US Census Bureau activity in neighborhoods

We Count

Complete Count Committee sharing outreach plans for historically under-counted communities

Census doorknock buttons and pins in multiple languages

Join the next Minneapolis Complete Count Committee (MCCC) to hear census 2020 outreach plans over the next year, including efforts to engage hard-to-count neighbors in our city within the African American, East African, Latino, Southeast Asian, and aging communities. 

The City of Minneapolis’ Neighborhood and Community Relations (NCR) representatives will present their census outreach and engagement plans, and share opportunities on how local organizations and the city can work together. 

During the meeting, the MCCC invites input from the community to strengthen activities and collaboration. Co-chairs of the MCCC will be announced; local organizations are encouraged to engage co-chairs and MCCC members to help bring more community voices together to ensure that all are counted. We Count!

The next meeting will be Sep.17, from 6-8 p.m. at the Morris Recreation Center, multipurpose room.

U.S. Census Bureau is knocking on doors now for census pre-work

Learn how census workers are canvassing in your neighborhood today to count all of the dwellings in this short video.

U.S. Census Bureau field workers are in our neighborhoods now through October verifying addresses. Field workers will try to knock on every door to make sure the Census Bureau’s address list is accurate and complete ahead of the 2020 census, which determines our political representation and important funding for things like roads and schools for the next decade.

Address canvassing is a normal part of the census process, and any census workers who visit your building over the next few months will only ask for information about addresses – not people.

You can verify that the field workers are legitimate census employees in multiple ways:

  • The census worker must present an ID badge that includes their photograph, a Department of Commerce watermark and an expiration date.
  • Census workers may be carrying a Census Bureau phone or laptop as well as a bag with a Census Bureau logo.
  • You can call 800-923-8282 or 312-579-1500 to speak with a local Census Bureau representative.

We are providing this information to help put Minneapolis residents at ease about the U.S. Census Bureau work occurring in our neighborhoods.
