minorities uncounted including IRANIANS
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
The number of Iranian-Americans has historically been underrepresented in U.S. Census data. The underrepresentation can be attributed to the lack of participation in the census surveys. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, a total of roughly 300,000 individuals identified themselves as Iranian or Iranian-American, in the 2010 Census. However, the actual number is believed to be far greater than that.
On March 12, 2020, The Iranian Complete Count Committee kickoff event in partnership with the U.S. Census Bureau. A live stream of community leaders, partner organizations, city officials, influencers, celebrities and more. Together, we can all be counted as IRANIANS in the 2020 U.S. Census.
