How responding to the 2020 U.S. Census can help


There’s still plenty of time to fill out the 2020 U.S. Census.

Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding your community receives, how your community plans for the future, and your representation in government.

Data from the census is used for the following:

  • Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals and fire departments.
  • Plan new homes and businesses and improve neighborhoods.
  • Determine how many seats your state is allocated in the House of Representatives.

Last report shows Kay County has a 60% response rate, putting the county in the top ten for Oklahoma in response rates. Oklahoma’s statewide response rate is 55.9%
