Response Rates

The U.S. Census Bureau has created an interactive map to allow exploration of response rates for a variety of geographies nationwide.

Not only does a higher response rate mean a more accurate count of the population, but it is better from the perspective of fiscal responsibility. When households don't respond to the questionnaires, the Census Bureau must send fieldworkers to their addresses in an effort to collect their responses, which is much more costly to taxpayers.
