Complete Count Committees are established to motivate communities to respond to census and often include a cross section of community representatives — including government agencies, education, business, faith-based organizations and the media. The 2010 Census is a count of everyone living in the United States. The first Census was conducted in 1790 and has been carried out every 10 years since then.
