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 61.9% as of September 28, 2020. 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!
