Preparations for the 2020 Census are underway. Its goal is to count everyone once, only once and in the right place.
To assist local communities in their efforts to obtain a complete count of residents, we have prepared maps of hard-to-count populations, as well as some of the key factors that contribute to low response rates.
Each map series begins with a depiction of “Low Response Scores”, essentially the predicted non-response rate for the 2020 Census. Areas with higher scores (darker shades on the maps) are predicted to have lower response rates.
Each of the additional maps represent indicators that are thought to lead to low response rates, including:
- Renter-occupied households
- Population age 18 to 24
- Population age 5 and under
- Female-headed households
- African-American population
- Population with a different housing unit one year ago
- Language other than English spoken at home
Use our interactive map to view additional indicators or scroll down to select one of our printable community-level maps sets.
