Census 2010 In Indiana

Indiana's Hard-to-Count Areas

It's a big state! With more than 6.6 million people living in Indiana and nearly 40,000 square miles of land to cover, efforts to promote the census can be helped by knowing where to target messages. That's where the "Hard-to-Count" (HTC) scores come in.

Maps of hard-to-count areas

HTC scores for the 2020 census are not yet available. Maps from the Census 2010 planning efforts are provided for reference in the interim.

More about the scores

Scores can range from 0 to 132. High scores indicate high concentrations of attributes that make enumeration difficult, which increase the likelihood of an undercount. This information comes from the Census 2010 Planning Database, which uses Census 2000 data. These scores were derived from 12 variables that are correlated with high nonresponse rates.

  1. Vacant Units (percent)
  2. Multi-family Housing Units (percent)
