An average of 74% of households in Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties completed the census on their own, 4.4% higher than the state’s self-response rate and 7% higher than the nation’s.
Characteristics of Hard-to-Count Populations
Population data from the U.S. 2020 Census informs how much federal funding will support our local communities over the next decade for local hospitals, fire departments, school lunch programs, highways, and other critical programs and services.
Census data also determines the number of representatives California has in the U.S. House of Representatives and redraws State Assembly and Senate boundaries to ensure a fair democratic process at all levels of government.
