City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census 2020 Complete Count Committee

The City of Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Census 2020 Complete Count Committee focuses on ensuring a complete count of people of all ages who live in the city or county in the upcoming federal Census 2020. The Committee will work with all of the various communities in the city and county, as well as groups and associations of all sorts, to form partnerships, identify resources and develop an effective outreach strategy, with a primary focus on hard-to-count populations.

Why is a complete count important?

The United States Constitution requires that every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau count every person in the nation. A complete and accurate count of our population is essential because this count is used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. The city and county will lose $3,000 per uncounted person per year, which translates to $30,000 for one person over the 10-year census period. The Census count also determines the boundaries and number of representatives allocated to communities in the House of Representatives, the state legislature, and a number of other elected bodies.
