DENVER (CBS4)– The Census Bureau is turning to a new tactic to get people to respond to the questionnaire. This week, emails went out to residents living in low-responding areas to encourage them to complete the form.
Right now, about 66% of Coloradans have responded to the 2020 Census.
Douglas and Jefferson counties have the highest response rates in Colorado, at 77%.
Beginning July 30, census takers will begin knocking on doors in @douglascountyco to collect responses from households that have not yet responded. You can also respond online at https://t.co/NLcaARIU51 or by phone at 1-844-330-2020. #2020Census #ColoradoCounts pic.twitter.com/aZ5YtMPcCQ
