2020 Census

Calhoun County staff are working together to encourage residents countywide to respond to the 2020 Census. The County Committee seeks to reach populations in our county who typically have low response rates, such as seniors, veterans, rural households, and low-income families. In tandem with efforts specifically in Battle Creek, the County committee's goal is an accurate and complete count.
