As of October 15, 2020, 75.7% of all housing units in the Bay Area completed the census online, by phone, or by mail. This does not include unhoused community members or those living in group quarters or transitional facilities.
The U.S. Census Bureau has accounted for the remaining 24.3% housing units through in-person interviews or administrative data. Special thanks to the Bay Area Counts 2020 network for all your efforts towards a complete and accurate census!
United Way Bay Area (UWBA) served as one of ten “Administrative Community-Based Organizations” (ACBOs) for the State of California’s Complete Count efforts. We led a $3.7M regional census outreach initiative called Bay Area Counts 2020, which includes grantmaking, regional coordination, data stewardship, and technical assistance to hundreds of non-profit, philanthropic, business, labor, and government partners. Together, we worked to ensure every person in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Solano Counties was counted in the 2020 Census.
