As of Monday, Iowa City had a 65 percent mail participation rate for the current census, 5 points above the national average, according to reports from the Census Bureau.

Iowa ranked fifth in the nation for its participation rate, at 70 percent.

In a press release, City Clerk Marian Karr urged residents who haven’t completed their census forms to turn them in before officials begin doing door-to-door visits.

The Census Bureau saves roughly $85 million in operation costs for each percentage point increase in participation by mail, she said.

Forms are available at City Hall, 410 E. Washington St., Iowa City Public Library, 123 S. Linn St., University Bookstore, Old Capitol Town Centre, Iowa Book, 8 S. Clinton, and all area Hy-Vee locations.
