The 2020 Census is underway. Its goal is to count everyone once, only once and in the right place.

Response Rate Maps

As residents complete their 2020 Census forms, the U.S. Census Bureau is sharing the response rates, updated daily. Their mapper includes figures at the national, state, county, city, and census tract levels. The data can be tracked over time and can be compared to 2010 Census response rates. Interactive maps are available at the Census Bureau’s Response Rates viewer and at the CUNY Census 2020 Hard to Count Map.

Hard-to-Count Maps

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
