Census 2020

Thank you to all who completed the 2020 Census! Data collection is complete as of October 31, 2020.  Orange County’s self-response rate was 67.0%, up from 61.9% in 2010; self-response is the best way to get the most accurate information for our County, so we’re really excited to see that increase and thankful for everyone who filled out their forms online, over the phone, or by mail, and for those who filled out their forms with a Census worker.

Next Steps for the Census

  • As close as possible to April 1, 2020, the Census Bureau will deliver population data to the states, to be used for drawing new state, county-level, and local-level legislative districts.
