Census mail-in responses lag in Merced County

Merced County residents have so far mailed in fewer completed census forms than the national average. The U.S. Census Bureau unveiled a mapping tool this week that allows the public to track national, state and local progress in filling out the decennial questionnaires. On Tuesday afternoon, the map showed that 10 percent of Merced County households had already returned their forms, which were mailed last week. The county lags behind the state and national return rates so far, which are 16 percent and 13 percent, respectively.
