As of September 29, the U.S. Census Bureau is proud to announce that 98.7 percent of housing units nationally have been counted in the 2020 Census, and 32 states plus the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico are over 99 percent enumerated.
The Census Bureau continues to take additional steps to ensure a complete and accurate count. This includes adding to the existing in-state census taker workforce in some states, with more than 22,000 experienced, trained census takers traveling from states and areas where the work is complete.
As a 2020 Census partner, we wanted to give you a heads up on this great news. Every day by 3 p.m. eastern, the Census Bureau releases the 2020 Census housing unit count completion rate for the nation, all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
