  • Censue Return Rates ~ So How's YOUR City doing?

    http://2010.census.gov/2010census/take10map/

    An interesting interactive map showing an almost street by street view of who has turned in their 2010 Census form. My local area is at 88% as of April 21st. How is everyone else doing?

    Opps... A minor typo in the thread name if I could get an admin to correct it I would be grateful...

    Wow, that map gets really specific.

    My area which includes 3 apartment complexes has a 66% return rate, but across the street and behind us return rates are ~85%

      70% in my immediate area, 69% in city.

      A few interesting things from the graph I've noticed:
      • The more affluent suburbs have a higher return rate, consistently > 70%
      • Areas with lots of transplants have a lower return rate, ~60-70%
      • SDSU and some of the beaches (both notorious party areas populated by college-aged people) have a dismal 55% return rate, but UCSD is 68%
      • Poor areas with minorities are the majority have lower return rate ~60%.

        Hmmm, I can't get any closer than a town view... must be from living to far out :D

        80% for the county
        83% for the town

          If they know how many people didn't turn a census in, don't they already know the population? :P

          Yeah, yeah, I know it is estimated and they are collecting more than just raw population numbers.

          Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.

            I was actually wondering the same thing myself, but I think the numbers we are seeing is the number of census forms sent out versus forms returned... I'm sure that they will post the 'results' once they are in but until then this is still kind of cool to look at considering just how detailed it gets!

              Something cool I just noticed, if you click on a state (or county if you are zoomed in) it shows the return rate not only for 2010 but also 2000. So my home state of Michigan had a return rate of 77% in 2000, but only 76% in 2010. like I said earlier there is a LOT of detail!

                The township just north of me (I live in very populated suburbs and feel no map love) is at 76%.

                  75% for where I spend my summers off (where my parents live): 75% for the Town and 74% for the state (Westport, Connecticut)...not bad :)
