Tracking Census participation across the country
Curious how our 2010 Census participation rates compare? You can follow along at the Census participation map.
As of Monday, the city's rate is 41 percent, Carroll County's is 58 percent -- highest in the region and the state, if my bleary eyes do not deceive me -- and the national rate is 46 percent. (The point of the map is to encourage more mail-ins. "If 100% of households mailed back their forms, taxpayers would save $1.5 BILLION dollars," the site says.)
Six towns -- mostly in North and South Dakota -- have 100 percent participation.
Seen any neat maps lately? Do share.
