About the Complete Count Committee

The Complete Count Committee is led by the County of Santa Barbara and comprised of more than 100 leaders from the public, private and nonprofit sectors to jointly develop and implement effective outreach strategies while maximizing resources. 

The committee serves as a grassroots strategy approach to reach the hardest-to-count populations. The committee also serves to assist with tactical, complete count initiatives. The Complete Count Committee of Santa Barbara County created six sector-based subcommittees based on member’s access to different hard-to-count populations.

Santa Barbara County is committed to ensuring the 2020 Census counts every resident, regardless of age, gender, income, home ownership, permanent address, immigration status, or any other factor.
