Nearly 1 in 3 Americans failed to fill out Census

Nearly 1 in 3 Americans have failed to fill out and return their Census form as of the Friday due date.

The mail-in participation rate stood at 68 percent, though more forms are expected to arrive throughout the weekend, and official participations results won't be available until May, the New York Times said.

The results appear to be close to the participation rates of the 2000 Census, despite a major ad campaign by the Census Bureau, reported USA Today.

Wisconsin had the highest participation rate at 78 percent, following closely by Minnesota at 76 percent, and Iowa with 75 percent, said the New York Times.
