Iron County Sees Little Increase in Census Data

The latest numbers are out from the Census Bureau and the self-response numbers haven’t moved much in the last month. 

Responses to the 2020 Census in Iron County have reached 42.9%, which is 1.1% higher than last reported at 41.8% in June.

Current self-response rates nationwide is at 62.7%, which crept up shortly from the 60.0% reported at this time last month.  While in Missouri, the rate is just above the national rate at 62.9%.  

In mid-March, most households received an invitation in the mail to respond to the 2020 Census, followed by multiple reminders and a paper questionnaire.  Census takers are scheduled to visit households that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census this month.

Breaking down the Arcadia Valley, Ironton has a current self-response rate of 53%, Arcadia is at 43.9%, and Pilot Knob is holding at 35.4%.

Census officials believe that the numbers haven’t moved much because most people are waiting to be interviewed by door-to-door census takers.
