In November, the U.S. Census Bureau released their mailing strategy explaining which areas will receive targeted materials for completing the 2020 Census. You can read the full press release on the U.S. Census Bureau website. Here is an overview:
- About 3/4 of households will receive an invitation to respond online
- About 1/4 will receive a paper questionnaire
- Specific areas will receive English/Spanish invitations
The Center for Urban Research has analyzed and incorporated this new information into the Hard-To-Count Map, so you can see how your State’s hard-to-count communities will be affected. Census stakeholders can use this map to inform their local communities on what to expect and strategize how to engage more residents in the 2020 Census.
