Gauging Arizona’s participation in the 2020 census

The state attempted to boost participation in traditionally undercounted communities.

Collection for the 2020 census ended this month. Early on the state worked with the U.S. Census Bureau to encourage participation. That included creating the Arizona Complete County Committee. Tony Paniagua spoke to Alec Thomson, the committee’s executive director, about the state’s participation rate and its efforts to target traditionally undercounted communities.
