Responding to the 2020 Census is underway! Households have received their invitations to respond by phone, mail, or for the first time - online.
As of April 8, Oklahoma had a response rate of 41.4% compared to the national average of 46.2%.
In Northwest Oklahoma, response rates are average around 27.1%.
Top 3 Counties:
- Garfield - 47.3%
- Kay - 46.1%
- Major - 40.4%
Bottom 3 Counties:
- Cimarron - 6.9%
- Harper - 11.6%
- Beaver - 12.2%
Now, more than ever it is important that Northwest Oklahoma has a complete count. Census data provides funding that supports our hospitals, schools, fire departments, police departments, human services, and roads.
It will take a group effort to help spread the word about the importance of the Census. After you fill out your survey, please encourage your friends, family members, and co-workers to do the same!
