Region I - Completing the Count - Shared screen with speaker view
I just logged on to the link I’ve been tracking for months and the map (the one you displayed in your presentation now) is missing. Do you know where it went?

Perfect? Thanks, I’ll update my link.
I meant “Perfect!”
@Sarah, yes, they just updated this page the other day to include all the Non-Response Follow Up data. You can still access the Self-Response rate map by scrolling down to "Keep up With the Count in Your Area" and clicking on the box on the right "Self-Response Rate"
Will these great slides be available after the webinar?
Question for Carly - Are the final counts a hard count? If only ~70% of people respond to the Census, is that the final number?
Basic question - What is the Rate? It implies if we get 100% we have everyone?
Will Complete Count Committees be able to access to NRFU data below the state level?
*to access the NRFU data
My question is similar to Ben's and Meg's...how does the Census arrive at population numbers...do they estimate based on responses or is that the final population/data number used?

Any sense of the likelihood that state lawsuits will success in restoring the later deadline for the census?

With the extension of the deadline for getting information / responses, when does the Census Bureau anticipate releasing census data that can be used by municipalities and consultants?
Any chance of the deadline extended till the end of October, as was originally planned?
Ok, great! Thank you
Kathleen's answer is absolutely correct. No estimates in the decennial -- only in the ACS.
Thank you Kathy and Carly...it's helpful to communicate to our residents that there's not "rounding up", that the count matters in knowing true population.
Kelly and Kathy both shared that tapping into influential local voices as a strategy for increasing self response rates and building trust. Here's one great example of this from the City of Houston, who tapped the local, famous rapper from the area to raise awareness of and trust for responding to Census https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NdZxBmiWxc
How can we find out local census counters to ask about/assist with targeting certain neighborhoods?
*find our (meaning the local offices)

This was great, thank everyone. I'm a planner / solo planning staff for a small community so I appreciated the easy steps and potential partners that we can implement on the quick!
