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.

Researching and Testing

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.
