Welcome to SLC Counts 2020 – Salt Lake City’s effort to make sure a fair and accurate count of all city residents is conducted in the 2020 Census.

Can We Count You In?

In a North vs. South match-up, this challenge pits Salt Lake County (Salt Lake City and West Valley City) against Utah County (Provo and Orem), with each competing to raise their census response rate the most from June 1 through June 30.

Join this fun and friendly competition to ensure all of Salt Lake City residents are fairly and accurately counted in the 2020 Census. SLC needs to reach 69% or better to win!

Challenge Dates: June 1 – June 30
Challenge Goal: Increase current participation rates by 5%
For the Win: Both counties have selected to support their local Utah Community Action Food Bank. The “losing” cities will send volunteers to support the winning county’s food bank. The winning city will get bragging rights for the next decade.

The first round of trash talking starts with a video that feature Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall and other local leaders. Watch here.
