2020 Census: Georgia
Based on the latest census estimates (for the 2014-2018 period), 10,037,150 people live in 3,709,488 households in Georgia, and 260,334 people live in group quarters. (Total population = 10,297,484.)
Georgia’s 2020 Census response is up to 57.7%. We are just over half way to our goal for everyone in Georgia to be counted!! But, many areas in Georgia are considered “Hard to Count” and may be under-represented in our 2020 Census. (https://bit.ly/2YOAJ1v)
The Urban Institute estimates that as many as 177,000 Georgia residents may be undercounted in 2020. This projection could be reduced if Georgia’s self-response rate is higher than expected. Visit this link for more info on the low, medium, or high undercount risk scenarios, with population estimates by race/ethnicity and age groups.
The deadline for the 2020 Census to October 31st, but do not wait! It’s quick and easy!
