Census Response Rate – Decatur: 67%, Avondale: 60%Decatur Metro | | 4:51 pm
From InDecatur’s recap from last night’s Decatur City Commission meeting…
Peggy: Decatur is currently at 67% census return, vs. goal of 99%.
Well, that goal seemed a bit, shall-we-say, aggressive? So, I ventured over to the Census 2010 website to give that number a bit more context and low and behold, not only is there up-to-date data, but also a handy-dandy map and interactive database! Look I even created this informative comparative chart for Decatur city, DeKalb County, Atlanta city, Avondale and Georgia!
The map itself shows that Decatur is currently ahead in participation among cities in the metro region.
