South Carolina Census 2010 Advertising and Outreach * an overview

South Carolina Census 2010
Advertising and Outreach – an
Where SC Fits In
• SC spending about $250,000 on advertising and
• Federal campaign more than $300 million, with
bulk on TV. Also focused on many languages.
• We assume SC residents will see lots of federal
advertising – we are trying to be an exclamation
point that says “You’ve heard about the census,
here is why it matters to SC.”
• Safety, security message of census left to national
ad campaign.
Where SC Fits In
• Because of modest resources, we are focusing
on counties where 2000 data showed a higher
percentage of people missed – different
measure than mail response rate.
• Those counties include: Richland, Greenville,
Charleston, Aiken, Oconee, Beaufort,
Dorchester, Berkeley, Horry and Spartanburg
Running February through April in target markets. Within
counties, we have aimed to place boards in areas with
low mail response rates.

NOTE: U.S. Census through its Detroit urban radio market contractor, is buying
ads on urban radio stations in 31 markets. Columbia is the only market in
SC in which US Census will buy spots directly on stations targeting AfricanAmericans. However, they will probably have spots on nationallysyndicated shows that are in other markets.
We are waiting to make Columbia radio buys pending U.S. Census
finalizing its plans in this market.
