Commerce encourages immediate response from rural North Dakotans, as delivery of the census packets in rural communities resumes
14 May 2020
The North Dakota Department of Commerce encourages rural residents to immediately respond to the Census 2020 survey as delivery of material packets resumes for the remaining rural residences in the state.
“This is an opportunity for the state to get caught up with where it should be in the rate of responses,” said Kevin Iverson, Census Office manager at the North Dakota Department of Commerce. “The state is behind where it should be at this point with just 58% of residents having responded to the census, below the national average. Unfortunately, we have some counties in the state where less than 30% of residents have responded.”
