The U.S. Census Bureau announced that it will begin following up with most households in Kansas that have not yet responded to the 2020 Census. The current self-response rate in the state is 65.7%. The Census Bureau will need to visit the remaining addresses to collect responses in person.
Non response follow up operations in the Wichita Area Census Office will begin the week of July 20, 2020. This office services 91 counties in Kansas, which is the majority of the state including southern, western and north-central Kansas. The remaining counties in the state are serviced by a separate office, in which non response follow up operations will begin later this summer.
Households can still self-respond now by completing and mailing back the paper questionnaire they received, by responding online at 2020census.gov, or by phone at 844-330-2020 (English). Households can also respond online or by phone in one of 13 languages and find assistance in many more. Those that respond will not need to be visited to obtain their census respo
