A banner flies in front of the County Building reminding citizens to be counted for the 2020 Census.

LIHU‘E — Only 19.8% of households in Kaua‘i have responded to the 2020 Census since it opened last month. That’s almost two times less than the national average of 38.4%, as reported by the U.S. Census Bureau.
