The Alabama Counts! 2020 Census Committee is an advisory group composed of public and private statewide organizations committed to working together to ensure each Alabamian is counted in the 2020 Census. Alabama Counts! builds trust in communities and promotes the 2020 Census. Through these efforts, we are striving for maximum participation in every community across the state.

Governor Kay Ivey signed an executive order on Aug. 20, 2018, establishing the committee, and the director of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA), Kenneth Boswell, serves as the chair. ADECA serves as liaison between the State of Alabama and the Census Bureau.

Alabama Counts! is divided into eight subcommittees designed to reach all areas of Alabama. The chairs of these subcommittees serve as the executive committee.

ADECA and Alabama Counts are collaborating closely with the U.S. Census Bureau’s Atlanta regional office and its Alabama partnership specialists who are helping communities form their own local 2020 Census Complete Count Committees.

Complete Count Committees

Alabama Counts! serves as the state Complete Count Committee, but local communities are forming their own Complete Count Committees to raise awareness about the 2020 Census and how important it is to be counted.

The U.S. Census Bureau has a list of of Complete Count Committees that they are updating as new ones are formed. Select "Alabama" from the drop-down menu below to find your local Complete Count Committee and how to contact them to get involved.
