Hi Cheyenne County, I'm happy to report positive news where the 2020 Census is concerned. The critical Update Leave process as was suspended due to pandemic concerns restarted in mid-May and will soon be completed in your County. Update Leave (UL) areas are where households generally receive mail at PO Boxes. Census invitations/questionnaires are not mailed to PO Boxes, so in UL areas Census Bureau employees personally left that information at each household. Expectations are this census field operation will help improve your county's self-response rates ( 2020 Census response rate map ). Today Cheyenne county’s self-response rate is reported at 50.7% compared with a national average of 60.4%. This self-response rate represents the percentage of residential households who have so far replied to their census. The delivery of Update Leave packets is a big step. Now it is important your residents respond, ideally using the Census ID number contained in the packet and that corresponds to the household address. Any encouragement you can extend throughout Cheyenne County will help make that happen. Attached are English and Spanish social media posts related to UL. Messaging and a heart-warming, pertinent video are below. These posts and information coming from you will do much to boost self-response in your community. Thanks! And stay safe!

We are excited to announce that Kansas teachers, students and parents just got a new partner in their continuous learning efforts.
