The U.S. Census Bureau has embarked on a nationwide effort to inform everyone living in the United States and five of its territories about the upcoming 2020 Census and to encourage them to respond online, by phone, or by mail.
Making of the 2020 Communications Campaign
“This is Me,” a music video performed by Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) artists from across the country, invites and inspire the NHPI community to be seen, heard, and counted in the 2020 Census. The performance celebrates the culture of the Pacific Islands by featuring traditional songs, chants, clothing, and dances. It will be featured on the Census Bureau social media channels.
The “Shape Your Future. START HERE.” communications platform is the foundation for all advertising and communications about the 2020 Census. This tagline highlights that people can shape their future by responding to the 2020 Census. Our paid advertising campaign reinforces that message by explaining how their future and their community’s future are impacted by the 2020 Census. The items linked below include content such as press releases, blogs, and graphics that provide more information on the Census Bureau’s outreach efforts.
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.
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.
