Local Census Participation Lagging

Responses to mailed census forms from the San Lorenzo Valley seem to be running below the national average. Response rates thus far, nationwide are running at 16% and Santa Cruz County overall is at about 18%.  There is a nifty interactive map that is being used to track response rates from across the country.  At the moment I looked a small city in Iowa had a 72% response rate so far which was tops in the nation.  Areas around Felton, Ben Lomond, Brookdale and Boulder Creek showed an 11% response rate as of 3/24.
