Total response rates are also available for other states and self-response rates down to the census tract level. Note: Self-response rate information does not depict how many housing units they counted in an area.

These rates do not equate to enumeration rates in the area.

The 2020 Census counts everyone living in the United States as of April 1, 2020, and it determines the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives. The census is also the result of how the government allocates hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds for the next ten years for critical public services and infrastructure like emergency response, fire departments, schools, hospitals, roads, and bridges.
