Census Participation Rates!!!

A "Mail Participation rate" is the percent of forms mailed back by households that received them. To find your area's 2010 Census participation rate using the map, enter your zip code, or your city and state, in the search field and click the "Find" button. Once you do this, a national view of the map will appear with a data window on the exact location you chose. The mail participation rate for that area will be featured prominently within that window. From here you can either zoom in or compare that area's 2010 participation rate to its 2000 Census participation rate.
