How Many People Have Returned the 2020 Census So Far?


The government spends years preparing to take the census every decade. So how are we doing thus far, especially considering we’re in the middle of a pandemic?

The U.S. Census Bureau has suspended sending people to homes to follow up on the Census, for obvious reasons, but a lot of people are answering the Census online. As of last week, the national response rate is 49.1%.

You may have heard in the news recently that the Trump administration was asking Congress to pass a law to change the deadlines as to when the federal government has to turn over Census data to the states in order to start the once-a-decade redistricting process.
