al census

With the deadline for the 2020 U.S. census passed on Oct. 15, the results say that 99.9% of households responded, with 54.5% self responding in Dallas County, a map on shows. 

A press release from Alabama Governor Kay Ivey said that of the 99.9% of households that responded, 63.5% were self responding Alabama residents.

The press release said that this was an improvement over the 62.5% self-response rate in 2010. 

“Over the past several months, Alabamians have come together during these challenging times to complete their 2020 Census, heeding our messages about how vital this count would be to shaping the future of our state,” Ivey said in the press release.

“We’re hopeful that the spirit of our citizens in this effort will translate into good news for Alabama down the road.”

The press release stated that the U.S. Census Bureau will release the total statewide population figures on Dec. 31.
