Ensuring the Inland Empire Counts!
The IE is Ready for Census 2020!
The Inland Empire is a vibrant community filled with innovative ideas, diverse communities, and abundant opportunity. San Bernardino and Riverside counties are home to over 4 million people, nearly a million of which are immigrants and two-thirds of which are people of color. The City of Riverside is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and San Bernardino county is the largest in size in the nation. The community knows this because we live here, and the nation will soon come to know it because of the census. Join us and make the IE count by participating in the 2020 Census!

Who We Are
Census IE is a coalition of nonprofit and community based organizations within San Bernardino and Riverside counties, led by the Inland Empire Community Foundation, committed to securing a complete and accurate count of our region.
This website is dedicated to uplifting this nonprofit coalition.
IE Counts is the campaign name reflective of the joint effort of San Bernardino and Riverside County governments to ensure a complete count of the region. In collaboration with the Center for Social Innovation of UCR, the counties have established the Inland Empire Complete Count Committee (IE-CCC) to bring together leadership from different sectors to coordinate efforts.
