We’re Seeing The End of Nonresponse Followup

As of Sunday, we have checked-in to local census offices 97% of the census forms we have to complete in the nonresponse followup operation.

We do have offices that are behind the national rate and will continue to complete their work in the coming weeks. This always occurs in any large scale data collection. The variation in completion rates encourages more attention on those that are somewhat behind. Overall, the nonresponse followup operation is on schedule, and we don’t anticipate large numbers of offices requiring work beyond the deadline. I am also happy to report that we continue to be under-budget for this operation.

Please submit any questions pertaining to this post to ask.census.gov
