Census Participation Holds Steady

Participation rates for the 2010 Census have been released, and the national average of 74% matches that of the previous Census in 2000.

Milwaukee had the highest rate of response this year among major metropolitan areas.

"This metro area saw 84 percent participation, but that was actually a decrease over its rate in 2000 (87 percent). Rounding out the top ten in 2010 were Minneapolis-St. Paul, Madison, Pittsburgh, Rochester, Indianapolis, Detroit, Ogden, Cleveland, and Youngstown, all of which saw more than 80 percent participation. Once again, the Midwest dominates."
