Tracking Census Results

There are three websites that offer the ability to track census results. The Response Rate Website has mapping features that can be scaled down to view census tract, county, city or congressional district information and includes 2010 county and city response rates.  The Rankings Website provides census response ranking information on a state and national level for counties and cities. This site shows the self-response rate as well as the total response (enumerated) rate. The Census Bureau also provides a map that can track Nonresponse Followup in your area.
