As of today, Patterson’s self response rate for the 2020 Census is 62.9 percent. That is lower than the 63.6 percent response rate for households in Stanislaus County.
The higher the self-response rate, the fewer households that census takers will need to contact during the Nonreponse Followup phase of the 2020 Census. This means fewer census takers knocking on doors.
Due to COVID-19, there have been some operational adjustments for the 2020 Census.
Every household has the option of responding online, by mail, or by phone.
The 2020 Census population count will be used for the next ten years to determine how hundreds of billions of federal dollars per year are allocated to communities for schools, roads, emergency response, and other vital services.
Please let me know if I can answer any questions, if you would like to schedule an interview, or I may provide you quotes or photos.
