We are sure you remember the 2020 US Census, that decennial count of Americans that, for the first time in recent memory if ever, took place in the midst of a pandemic.
Now that it’s 2021, you might expect the numbers to be released soon for Ohio, Richland County, and the county’s cities and villages. You would be mostly right. Here’s what’s up.
Just before New Year’s, the Census Bureau shared the following:
“Data collection is just one part of producing a complete and accurate 2020 Census. Since mid-October, Census Bureau experts have been hard at work on processing the data. More…
Richland County residents really stood up and were counted this year as the 2020 US Census was taken.
With that process now being concluded, final responses — both self-responses and those collected by census workers in the field — are coming in.
The Secretary of Commerce has now announced a target date of October 5 to conclude 2020 Census self-response and field data collection operations. More…
Today, we share what has become a monthly look at the rate at which Richland Countians have been playing their part in the 2020 US Census. We do so as the ability to respond will be closing soon.

Because of the scale of this operation, the Census Bureau will begin the work in a few areas before operations begin in earnest across the country. More…

The increase is quite small, but the numbers are heading in the right direction.
In the recently released 2019 estimates of population for America’s cities, towns, and incorporated areas, several RIchland County communities saw some growth.

It’s one month later, and in terms of the US Census the citizens of Richland County appear to be keeping up with the Joneses – mostly.
April 1 was known as “Census Day” as the official count takes place on that date. On that day, the United States Census Bureau reported that the national rate of census returns stood at 36.2%, with Ohio’s pegged at 39.3%. More…
April 1 is known as “Census Day,” as it is the official reference date used for the US Census, conducted every ten years since 1790.
This year’s version will be different for a couple of important reasons.
First, this is the first federal census which has included the ability for residents to self respond not only via the mail, but also by phone and online. The form is also available in a total of 12 languages for the first time. More…
