Outreach

The outreach campaign is multifaceted, diverse, and designed to motivate the public to respond to the 2020 Census. Its goal is to reach everyone living in the United States, including historically hard-to-count groups.


Researching and Testing

In an effort to reach everyone living in the United States, the Census Bureau conducted extensive research to understand what motivates people to respond to the census and what prevents them from responding. The Integrated Communications Campaign (ICC) was developed based on insights from this research.
