The CACs on the African American Population, AIAN 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 outside-user perspective about how research and design plans for the reengineered 2010 Decennial Census, the American Community Survey (ACS), and other related programs realize goals and satisfy needs associated with these communities. The committees also assist the Census Bureau on ways that census data can best be disseminated to diverse race and ethnic populations and other users.

The 2010 CAC is composed of a Chair, Vice-Chair, and 20 member organizations—all appointed by the Secretary of Commerce. The Committee considers the goals of the decennial census, including the ACS and related programs, and users' needs for information provided by the decennial census from the perspective of outside data users and other organizations having a substantial interest and expertise in the conduct and outcome of the decennial census.

The CACPA is composed of 36 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 of the Census Bureau on the full range of Census Bureau programs and activities in relation to each committee's areas of expertise and focus.

All the committees discussed in this notice have been established in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (Title 5, United States Code, Appendix 2, Section 10(a)(b)).
