Edmonson Voice Report:
Edmonson County has fallen behind in its response to the 2020 U.S. Census, according to national and state averages, provided by the Census Bureau.
Julie Travillion, Partnership Specialist with the U.S. Census Bureau, said that response activity hasn't increased much at all over the past few weeks.
"Kentuckians only have a few more weeks to respond to the 2020 Census before local census takers start knocking on doors in mid-August," she said. "Nearly 35% of Kentucky households still need to respond online, by phone, or by mailing back their paper questionnaire."
The image above shows the current response rates in the county, with the northeastern corner falling behind.
Average response rates are as follows:
National Response Rate: 62.3%
Kentucky's Response Rate: 65.6%
Edmonson County's Response Rate: 50.4%
Lowest Responding Tract: 50.5%
Highest Responding Tract: 65.5%
The lowest responding tracts are in brown and pink, and the highest responding is in darker blue. The white area is Mammoth Cave National Park.
