99% of Households Have Been Counted

The U.S. Census Bureau is releasing daily 2020 Census housing unit completion rates, including the 2020 Census self-response rate and Nonresponse Followup completion rate. Over 99% of housing units have been accounted for in the 2020 Census as of today, with 32.5% counted by census takers and other field data collection operations, and 66.6% of housing units responding online, by phone, or by mail.

99 Percent of Households Have Been Counted in the 2020 Census

When more households self-respond to the census, census takers will have fewer households to visit. It has never been easier to respond to the census on your own, whether online at 2020census.gov, over the phone, or by mail. Over 98.5 million households in the country have responded on their own so far!
