Vermont hits 99.9% complete in 2020 Census

As of the end of data collection for the 2020 Census, 99.9% of housing units and addresses were accounted for in Vermont, according to the U.S. Census Bureau at an operational press briefing last week.

Vermont had lagged behind in early efforts.

The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. The 2020 Census counts everyone living in the United States as of April 1, 2020. In addition to determining the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives, census results inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds will be allocated for the next 10 years for critical public services and infrastructure like emergency response, fire departments, schools, hospitals, roads and bridges.
