2020 Census: Conducting and Motivating the Count: Tracking Response Rates

As the 2020 Census responses were collected between March and October 2020, the Census Bureau provided up-to-date information on response rates so that local officials could track response in their communities. 

In April 2021, the Census Bureau released Operational Quality Metrics. These metrics included a measure of self-response which took a broader view. The operational metrics look at self-response among all addresses in the 2020 Census — not just among households invited to respond on their own.
