CENSUS: from Britta Arendt via Herald Review, VERBATIM: “There is just one week left for residents of Itasca County to self-respond to the 2020 Census and be counted for representation in regional, state and national decision-making. As of this week, just 55% of Itasca County residents have responded. Ten years ago, the final county self-response rate was 57.9% of households. This contributed to the state nearly losing the Eighth Congressional District to another state because of low response to the 2010 Census.
