The 2020 Census has finished collecting responses.
Census results shape the future of communities, as census data informs how billions of dollars in federal funds are distributed for health clinics, school lunch programs, disaster recovery initiatives, and other critical programs and services for the next 10 years.
According to updated numbers released by the U.S. Census Bureau, 99.98% of all housing units and addresses nationwide were accounted for in the 2020 Census as of the end of self-response and field data collection operations on October 15, 2020.
The California self-response rate (households that responded online, by mail, or by phone) was 69.6%, with the City of Fontana's self-response rate at 72.9%. View the Self-Response Rate Map here.
Nonresponse Followup was the final 2020 Census data collection operation to count households that had not already responded online, by phone, or by returning their completed questionnaire. The Area Census Office (ACO) for Fontana completed 99.9% of the nonresponse follow-up workload.
The Census Bureau is working hard to process the data in order to deliver complete and accurate population counts as close to the December 31, 2020, statutory deadline as possible.
