2020 Census Response Rates interactive data tool released

2020 Census response rates trendOn behalf of the joint city-county Complete Count Committee (CCC), CI:Now has launched a new online data tool to help the CCC and others monitor local response rates and finely target outreach strategies. Place-based data has become even more critical as the CCC was forced to shift the initial “high-touch” strategy in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning that community-based partners like nonprofits and churches could no longer rely on in-person interaction with participants.

The Tract Selector allows anyone to select and download data for census tracts meeting user-set criteria for jurisdiction (City Council District, County Commissioner Precinct, unincorporated areas, Texas House District, and Texas Senate District) and many indicators of risk of undercount.

CI:Now developed the  2020 Census Response Rates tool with funding from the John L. Santikos Charitable Foundation, a fund of the San Antonio Area Foundation.
