2020 Census: Tracking Self-Response Rates Map

See how many housing units in your community responded online, by phone, or by mail.


Instructions for Using the Map

  • The national view of the Response Rates Map offers a look at the full United States, with each state color-coded to reflect its 2020 self-response rate.
  • Above the national map are two numbers. On the left is the national self-response rate for 2020. On the right is the self-response rate for an individual state. The self-response rate is the percentage of homes that responded to the census on their own.
  • In the national view, you can hover the cursor over each state to see its total self-response rate, its internet self-response rate, and its final 2010 self-response rate.
  • To take a deeper dive into an individual state's response rates, click on that state or select it from the drop-down menu on the right.
  • Once you're at the state level, you have the choice—using the menus to the right—to view response rates at several different geographic levels, including by: 
    –Congressional district 
    Within those options, the census tract level is the lowest geographic level shown on the map.
  • Using the "Geographies" menu at the right, you also have the option to view tribal areas at the national level.
