Donahue Data Dash: Census 2020 Operational Quality Metrics for Massachusetts Counties and Tracts
On October 6th, 2022, the U.S. Census Bureau released operational quality metrics for the 2020 Census at the county and tract level. These metrics are useful for understanding how the Census 2020 data was collected, at what rates the data was collected, and the quality of the data. The UMass Donahue Institute’s Population Estimates Program performed an analysis of the Census operation quality metrics for Massachusetts counties and tracts which explores the various metrics associated with self-response rates and the non-response follow-up program. Below is an interactive dashboard showing various maps and charts that visualize the Census 2020 operations quality metrics for both levels of geography as well as a link to the full report with further details on the process and metrics. For more information on the Census operational quality metrics, see the technical documentation tile on the dashboard or the background section of the full report.
