Results and Effectiveness
• Awareness of the Census grew to 99%. • Trusted voice approach yielded millions in free media value. • Engagement increased by 109% versus benchmark, with 94% indicating they have heard something recently about the Census. • Belief that participation is quick and easy at 88%, an increase of 132% versus benchmark, eliminating a major barrier to participation. • Current Participation Rate of 72% (4.23) may exceed 2000 and is tracking ahead of goal despite the hurdles of declining survey response rates over past 10 years, anti-government sentiment and privacy concerns.

Creative Execution
Armed with custom mindset research, negotiations sourced an unprecedented, inspirational outreach network to motivate every person residing in the US: 1. Tyler Perry’s House of Payne 'Curtis' touts simplicity in vignette by completing form in seven minutes 2. Dora the Explorer helped moms make sure they count their little ones in PSA. 3. Lesson Plans in every school 4. NASCAR’s Greg Biffle talks about funding for roads. 5. George Lopez motivates Hispanic community via branded content segments 6. 100+ local DJ voices including Dave Winfield, Matt Siegel and Dan Masucci tout local benefits 7. Patriotic PSAs feature Olympic athletes Ben Agosto, Julie Chu, and Jennifer Rodriguez 8. CBS Sports talent James 'JB' Brown, Clark Kellogg and others seed the message during Super Bowl Sunday and NCAA March Madness. 9. Mass ambient on lunch trucks, gas pumps, retail monitors, bus wraps and even oversized, 20 feet-high custom forms at street events.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Every ten years the US Census must count every individual residing in America. The scale of this challenge is unlike any commercial advertiser and the task is especially complicated since most people are unaware of how the Census benefits them. Millions will avoid participation because of privacy issues and anti-government sentiment. Our plan was shaped by proprietary research that segmented America based on responder catalysts and barriers to participation. Behavioural insights from segments such as the 'Cynical Fifth' or the 'Unacquainted' (both that are least likely to respond) helped drive an overall media strategy that turned our plan into an unprecedented public outreach effort. The campaign included 2500 multi-media outlets and enlisted 100+ celebrities and trusted voices through our media negotiations. This outreach strategy worked across multiple platforms including branded content messages in TV, 1,000+ airings of radio chatter, print advertorials, event appearances and social tweets.
