Google Map of Census Participation Rates

Census 2000 Mail Participation Rates

The U.S. Census Bureau has created a Google Map to show how well different areas responded to the 2000 Census. The map displays the percent of census forms mailed back by households that received them.

To use the map, enter your zip code, or your city and state and click the 'find' button. Your location will then appear on the map. you can then explore the participation rate for your area by choosing 'county', 'place', or 'local' views.

When the 2010 Census begins in March 2010 the map will also track mail back 2010 participation rates, enabling you to see how well your community is participating in real time and to compare your community with others.
