2020 Census Response Rate Challenge

The City of Anna is challenging YOU to complete your census. We are hosting a 2020 RESPONSE RATE CHALLENGE! We have until October 31, 2020 to get our 2020 census filled out and we will be monitoring and posting the city progress on a weekly basis. Rates can be checked at: https://www.2020census.gov/en/response-rates.html

After October 31, 2020, the City will announce our official response rate to the community. If the response rate is between 86.00%-95.99%, each residence within the City Limits will be eligible to receive a $10 gift card, limit one per household. Details on how to pick up the gift cards, along with a listing of the businesses will be available after closing of the census competition. If the response rate is between 96.00%-100%, each residential utility customer within the city limits will be eligible for a bill credit of $25.00. No refunds will be paid.

Census Day is April 1, 2020

We are excited to announce that we’ve partnered with the US Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census! As a partner, we’ll be working to ensure that our community is accurately represented.

The count is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency. The 2020 Census counts the population in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands). Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire—online, by phone, or by mail.
