Contra Costa Response Rates
As of this week, a little over 70% of Contra Costa residents have self-responded to the census! However, there are areas (especially Richmond, Bay Point/Pittsburg, and Antioch) where responses are below 50%. You can look at the response rates here: https://2020census.gov/en/response-rates.html.
Stay tuned for more information about a “Back to School – census last call” push, led by the First 5 Association and others.
Please reach out to Darlene Drapkin with the US Census Bureau (Darlene.firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’d like an official enumerator to come to your site in-person and help people complete the census.

In the last census (2010), about five percent of children under age five weren’t counted—approximately one million kids nationwide. California had the highest rate of undercount for young children in the entire country. Click here to download more information.
