Remember when we told you all that's on the line for Spokane if you return your census? Well, way to go Spokanites. You are totally average when it comes to filling out the form (which takes all of 10 minutes) and mailing it (for free) back to the feds.
According the official census tracking Website, Spokane County has returned about 35 percent of its census forms, just above the national average of 34 percent and the state average of 31 percent. We're doing pretty well compared to King and Yakima counties (both at 29 percent) and Kittitas County (23 percent). As for Kootenai County? They've clocked in at 41 percent.
Of course, we're an embarrasement compared to Montana's 45 percent and North Dakota's 47 percent. Wowsers.
The No. 1 locale for return rates? Champ Village, Missouri, with 80 percent. Congrats.
