Complete Count Committee


The U.S. Constitution (Article I, Section 2) mandates a headcount every 10 years of everyone residing in the 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas of the United States.  This includes people of all ages, races, ethnic groups, citizens, and non-citizens. 

The population totals from the census determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives.  States also use the totals to redraw their legislative and school districts.  The population totals also affect funding in your community, and data collected in the census help decision makers know how your community is changing.  

The City of Framingham seeks to establish a local Complete Count Committee (CCC) to increase awareness and motivate residents to respond to the 2020 census.  The committee shall work to:

  • Increase the self-response rate for households responding online, by phone, or mailing back their questionnaire through a focused, structured, neighbor-to-neighbor program.
  • Utilize the local knowledge, expertise, and influence of each member to design and implement a census awareness campaign targeted to the community.
  • Bring together a cross-section of community members whose focus is 2020 census awareness. 
  • Implement creative outreach strategies in areas that may be considered hard to count areas.  


  • CCC members are appointed by the Mayor. 
  • Members interested in serving must be willing and able to serve until the census is completed (June 2020). 
  • Minimum requirements:
  • Must work, live, or own a business in Framingham.
  • CCC members receive no compensation of any kind.
  • Meetings will be held on the last Monday of the month, at 6:00 pm.  Meeting date and time are subject to change*
  • Application deadline: March 1, 2019
