High census return rate


The US Census Bureau is recognizing the city of Rochester and Olmsted County for the rate of participation with the mail-out census forms.

Rochester and Olmsted county's rate of return by mail was 82 percent.

That's a higher rate of return than both the state and nation.

Minnesota had an 80 percent return rate.

Nationally, 72 percent of forms were completed and mailed back.

Mailing the forms saves millions of dollars that would be spent on sending census workers door-to-door.

Statistics are expected to be available sometime early next year.
