As of April 16, the City’s response rate to the 2020 US Census has increased to 60.6%. We are now ranked 9th in the State, just behind Grayson and Avondale Estates.


Responding to the Census is critical to the City (as well as DeKalb County and the State of Georgia) because the results help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into the community every year for the next ten years.

The City of Decatur has a 56% response rate as of April 8 which places us in an 11th place tie with Between and Alpharetta in the State of Georgia for best response rate so communities across the State are responding to the 2020 Census. (Our goal is 90%.) If you have not yet responded, you can respond online in one of 13 languages and find assistance in many more. Go here to get started – https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond.html. The time is now.

Please note: You may receive multiple mailings from the Census Bureau this year, including an invitation to respond to the 2020 Census and follow-up postcards and letters. Millions of households received reminder postcards in the mail last week. If you receive mail after you have already responded, you should disregard it. It was sent before they received your response.
