Inland Empire Sub-Regions

Region 7

California has launched a statewide effort to ensure an accurate and complete count of Californians in the 2020 Census. The California Complete Count Office grouped California’s 58 counties into 10 regions based on their hard-to-count populations, like-mindedness of counties, capacity of community-based organizations within counties, and state Census staff workload capabilities. Locally, Census IE is the coalition organized direct outreach to what the state considers Region 7, or San Bernardino and Riverside counties. We have divided our region into 7 different sub-regions to best tailor our organizational capacity to our hardest to count communities.
