Census 2020 Response Rate Analysis: Final Overview
Prepared October 18, 2020
Slides from this presentation are displayed below. A PDF version of the presentation is also available.
- Latest self-response rates at the early end (10/15) of the data collection period.
- Overview of self-response rates throughout the extended timeframe and trends impacting those rates.
- Increase in number of states and other areas meeting or surpassing 2010 goalpost rates.
- Important demographic shifts in tracts with the lowest rates (requiring most door-knocking follow up): fewer people who are Hispanic or immigrants, and fewer renter households. But overall population in "bottom 20%" tracts are still disproportionately people of color, foreign-born, lower income, etc.
- Response rates by predominant race/Hispanic origin in census tracts across cities by size & rural/suburban/urban areas (including tribal lands).
- Key takeaways and final thoughts.
