    2016 Planning Database Low Response Score (LRS) by Census Track

    The Low Response Score (LRS) is how the US Census Bureau measures how likely the residents in a geographic area are to respond by mail to a survey or census. If an LRS is high, that means the area is considered​ harder-to-count. CA Census 2020 has LRS maps by County on their website​.

    Check out the Sacramento County map to see your neighborhoods L​​RS.
