Census 2020: Worcester and Mass. residents slow to be counted so far

From the article:

As of Wednesday, the cumulative Census 2020 self-response rate for Massachusetts is 50.2%, compared to 49.1% nationally, while Worcester stands at only 39.7%. So what gives?

“As a characteristically Northeast state, we’re doing very well,” said Susan Strate, population estimates program manager at the University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute in Hadley. “Worcester’s response rate is not looking good compared to the state’s average. And it’s alongside other large cities including places like Chelsea, Revere, a lot of the places that have very diverse populations, a lot of different languages going on, and, again in Worcester, you have the college population affecting that. ”

Currently, Massachusetts ranks 20th in overall self-response rates and 13th for internet responses.
