2020 Census Response Rate Tracker

Posted on Mar 23, 2020 in Decennial Census, Main, Whats New Releases

As of September 18, 2020, 99.0% of Hawaii households have been counted.  Hawaii’s self-response rate is 62.5%, and an additional 36.6% of households have been counted through the work of door-to-door census takers (NRFU).

In-person Non-Response Follow-Up (NRFU) has begun for households that have not yet responded to their census. Census takers will wear masks and follow local public health guidelines when they visit your home. All census takers complete a virtual COVID-19 training on social distancing and other health and safety protocols before beginning their work in neighborhoods.

Census takers are hired from your area, and their goal is to help you and everyone in your home be counted in the 2020 Census. If the census taker who visits your home does not speak your language, you may request a return visit from a census taker who does speak your language.

Census takers work between 9am and 9pm, including weekends. If no one is home when the census taker visits, the census taker will leave a notice of their visit with information about how to respond onlineby phone or by mail

If you respond online or by phone today, a census taker is less likely to have to visit your home to collect your response.
