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.
