Let's make Lakewood #1...in Census response rate!

Lakewood is already #1 in your heart, so let's make it #1 in our community's response rate.

The 2020 census is easier than ever to complete. It only takes a few minutes to submit your response online at my2020census.gov. Be prepared to complete the census in one sitting, as the system does not allow you to save your progress. See the questions the Census will ask.

It just takes a few minutes to bring great benefits to our community.

So far, Lakewood's Census participation has been very good...but we can do better!

As of June 15, our total response rate is 72.7%, ranking us at:

  • 94th in the state (within the top 15%)
  • 2nd among the six closest cities to Lakewood

The Census Bureau is now in the process of contacting those who haven't responded, and will continue through July to be sure everyone is counted.

Once you've submitted your form, spread the word to friends and neighbors and encourage them to complete their response too!
