2020 Hawaii Government Complete Count Committee
Hawaii’s Census efforts
Hawaii is committed to a complete and accurate count of all Hawaii residents during the 2020 Census. An accurate population count is of tremendous benefit to Hawaii. In addition to the reapportionment of congressional seats, census data will be used to distribute federal funds among the states and counties. Hawaii’s fair share of federal funds for programs essential to the health, education, and economic well-being of our residents depends on a complete count of everyone who lives in the state.
Over the next year, the Hawaii Government Complete Count Committee (HGCCC) will coordinate among state agencies, county governments, community leaders, and other Complete Count Committees to identify hard-to-count populations and areas and encourage full participation in Census 2020. Find other Complete Count Committees in Hawaii using this Census Bureau map.
With exactly one year before the Decennial Census, April 1, 2019 was proclaimed 2020 CENSUS DAY in Hawaii by Governor David Ige and Lieutenant Governor Josh Green. Governor Ige spoke to the Hawaii Government Complete Count committee about the importance of an accurate census count at the inaugural meeting. See photos from the meeting and read more here.
