SEPT. 3, 2020 — This week, the U.S. Census Bureau began to release daily 2020 Census Nonresponse Followup workload completion rates by area census office. As of Sept. 1, over 60.3% of the Nonresponse Followup workload has been completed nationwide.
Nonresponse Followup is the final 2020 Census data collection operation to count households that have not yet responded to the census online, by phone, or by mail. Census takers also follow up with households that have responded to improve and ensure accuracy of the census.
These rates are being released for the first time during a decennial census. The Census Bureau is releasing this information in order to help our partners and the public track their area’s progress in completing the 2020 Census.
Over 84.1% of housing units have been counted in the 2020 Census as of Sept. 1, with 19.0% counted by census takers and other field data collection operations, and 65.1% of housing units responding online, by phone or by mail.
The Census Bureau is committed to a complete and accurate count and urges every household to respond when a census taker comes to the door or respond on their own by using their census ID online, by phone, or by mail.
