2020 Census Results

States, as well as the public, will receive the data they need to begin redistricting by August 16. The Census Bureau will also deliver the final redistricting data toolkit to all states and the public by September 30. COVID-19-related delays and prioritizing the delivery of these apportionment results delayed our original plan.

More 2020 Census population results will be available later including statistics on age, sex, race and ethnicity, and details about the center of population. The results for the U.S. Island Areas will also be provided in a separate release at a later date.

About the Data Quality

The 2020 Census has numerous quality checks built into data collection and data processing. After the data are released, we continue to do an even deeper dive to evaluate the quality of the census in two major ways:

  • Looking at how well we conducted the census.
  • Comparing the census results to other ways of measuring the population, such as Demographic Analysis and Post-Enumeration Surveys.
