So far, 10.4 million California households or 68.7%, have self-responded to the Census. Across California, communities traditionally considered “hard-to-count” have responded to the 2020 Census in greater numbers than in 2010. And there are communities that have met and exceeded their final 2010 self-response rates – 41out of 58 counties and 315 out of 482 cities have done so. Today, an estimated nearly 2.5 million[1] households in the hardest-to-count tracts have self-responded.

[1] The U.S. Census Bureau releases Census 2020 percentage self-response rates by census tract. This information does not include the actual number of households that have self-responded. The California Complete Count – Census 2020 Office uses the following two data sources to calculate estimates of how many households have self-responded to the Census.

  • Census Bureau 2014-2018 American Community Survey 5-year estimates, table B25002: Estimated occupied housing units by census tract.
  • Census Bureau address counts: The aggregated number of addresses in the bureau’s Master Address File following the 2018 Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA).
