Wright County residents responding to 2020 census in large percentages

WRIGHT COUNTY – The Wright County Board of Commissioners was presented with updated 2020 US Census data last week that showed the progress that has been made in the self-response portion of the census data collection.

The United States Census Bureau makes every effort to get a complete count of the population because those numbers are used to provide funding for education, infrastructure, health care and employment training to name a few. Every community is urged to provide as complete a population count as possible to get their share of federal and state funding for programs that are based on population.

Most people have either filled out their Census form online or have mailed in a paper hard copy form. Minnesota has consistently been one of the top-ranked states for the percentage of the population that completes the form via self-response. 2020 has been no different. Through June 29, Minnesota has a completed self-response rate of 71.3 percent. Wright County currently has a self-response rate of 75.0 percent, one of the highest return rates in the state.

Four Wright County cities have a response rate of more than 80 percent – Hanover (85.6 percent), Delano (83.2 percent), St. Michael (82.8 percent) and Buffalo (80.9 percent). Five townships have a self-response rate of more than 80 percent – Buffalo (84.9 percent), Chatham (84.8 percent), Rockford (84.5 percent), Franklin (84.1 percent) and Monticello (83.7 percent).

Five cities have already had a self-response rate that was higher than the entire 2010 Census period – Buffalo, Clearwater, Hanover, Maple Lake and St. Michael – as well as two townships – Clearwater and Marysville.

On the flip side, two cities have a response rate to date of less than 60 percent – Waverly (58.4 percent) and Howard Lake (46.7 percent). Three townships currently has a self-response rate of less than 60 percent – French Lake (52.3 percent), Corinna (49.7 percent) and Southside (40.5 percent).

Here is the complete listing of the self-response rates of cities and townships in Wright County.

Note: The numbers following the city/township are the response rates through the period ending June 29, 2020, followed by the total self-response rate from that city or township during the 2010 Census.
