Data users across Tennessee anxiously await results of the 2020 Census after an extended counting phase and processing issues pushed the release date back several times.
More definitive release information is now available following the announcement that apportionment counts are scheduled for release on Friday, April 30. These counts include state-level totals used for the allocation of congressional seats.
