The U.S. Census 2020 is starting in about a year, and we’re recruiting volunteers to help make the count possible.

Since the once-a-decade counting of residents starts in spring of 2020, we are seeking volunteers to join our Complete Count Committee. The committee is a group of community members dedicated to encouraging all residents of Iowa City to be counted once, in the right place, during the Census.

If you are interested in becoming part of the Complete Count Committee and volunteering your time to ensure an accurate count of our residents, contact Ashley Monroe at 319-356-5012 or email

Also, if you’re interested in joining, please take our survey and tell us how you would like to volunteer.

Individuals, families, students, associations and all other members of the public are invited to take part in this important awareness campaign. We’ve already held an introductory meeting for the public on Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019, at Mercer Park Aquatic Center.
