The USCB started publishing self-response rate data on 03/20/2020.
While the state response rate is consistently about 4-5 percentage points above the county rate, both state and county rates have steadily increased throughout the self-response period.
There has been an uptick in response rate increases over the past few weeks (08/19 to 09/02).
The final self-response rate for California in 2010 was 68.2%, and the final 2010 rate for Los Angeles County was 69%.
Both CA and LA County are approaching their respective 2010 self-response rates, and we continue to see steady increases in self-response despite challenges, including those related to COVID-19 stay-at-home orders.
