The CACs on the African American Population, the American Indian and Alaska Native Populations, the Asian Population, the Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander Populations, and the Hispanic Population are composed of nine members each, appointed by the Secretary of Commerce. The Committees provide an organized and continuing channel of communication between the communities they represent and the U.S. Census Bureau on its effort to reduce the differential undercount for Census 2000 and on ways that census data can be disseminated to maximum usefulness to their communities and other users.

The CAC of Professional Associations is composed of thirty-six members appointed by the Presidents of the American Economic Association, the American Statistical Association, the Population Association of America, and the Chairman of the Board of the American Marketing Association. The Committee advises the Director, U.S. Census Bureau, on the full range of U.S. Census Bureau programs and activities in relation to its areas of expertise.

The 2000 Census Advisory Committee is composed of a Chair, Vice Chair, and up to forty member organizations. There are also sixteen ex-officio members, all appointed by the Secretary of Commerce. The Advisory Committee considers the goals of Census 2000 and user needs for information provided by that census. The Committee provides an outside user perspective about how operational planning and implementation methods proposed for Census 2000 will realize those goals and satisfy those needs. The Advisory Committee considers all aspects of the conduct of the 2000 Census of Population and Housing and makes recommendations to the Secretary of Commerce for improving that census.

A brief period will be set aside at the meeting for public comment. However, individuals with extensive statements for the record must submit them in writing to the Commerce Department official named above at least three working days prior to the meeting.
