Census Update: Every Response Counts

The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and takes place every 10 years. Unfortunately, the completion of the 2020 Census seems to be stalling out with only slight increases in Response Rates overall.

The national response rate for the Census is currently 60.6%. Louisiana’s response rate is 54.9%. Winn Parish has improved it’s response rate to 42.2% but is still lagging behind the national and state response rates. Local Winn Parish communities are:

Atlanta 37.5%
Calvin 21.1%
Dodson 29.4%
Sikes 17.5%
Winnfield 45.8%

The 2020 Census is underway and the most important thing you can do is respond online, by phone, or by mail when you receive your invitation. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up. Please check this page for regular updates.
