Rural WI Underrepresented in 2020 Census

Wisconsin completion rates of the 2020 Census are doing well compared to other states, but a county-by-county analysis reveals that rural counties have the lowest response rates in the state. Bayfield, Burnett, Florence, Forest, Iron, Menominee, and Vilas counties have response rates of less than 40%.
