ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The U.S. Census Bureau says 60 percent of Minnesota residents have returned their census forms as of today, the soft deadline for mailing back the questionnaire.
Nationally, the participation rate is 52 percent.
The Census Bureau has spent hundreds of millions of promotional dollars, hoping to boost the mail response. It's counting on a return rate of at least 67 percent and has based its budget for census takers on that figure.
