How to Use the Response Rate Map


Census results shape the future of communities, as census data informs how billions of dollars in federal funds are distributed for health clinics, school lunch programs, disaster recovery initiatives, and other critical programs and services for the next 10 years.

So, while you keep tabs on local response rates, encourage others in your community to respond to the 2020 Census.

Are You Up to the Challenge?

The Census Bureau is challenging everyone to help ensure a complete and accurate count in 2020.

Share information on your social media channels about the upcoming census and why it's important to respond. 2020 Census partners and stakeholders, media members, government officials, and others can all play a role in ensuring that everyone is counted once, only once, and in the right place.

Use the map above to review response rates from 2010 and 2020 in your state, city, town, or neighborhood. You can even challenge others in your community to participate! Get started with the 2020 Census Response Rate Challenge Toolkit below.
