Why does my 2020 Census questionnaire say ‘Joliet’ vs ‘Rockdale’

The Census Bureau recognizes that the Post Office “city” name associated with a particular zip code in the mailing address for a residence may differ from the legal municipality or district in which the housing unit is actually located.  In addition, the “city” name used by the USPS to identify a specific zip code or post office may not be the name that residents serviced by the post office consider themselves to reside in.

However, the Census Bureau uses a geocoding system so data from the 2020 Census are tabulated using these geocode assignments for each household, not the “postal city” name in the mailing address assigned to the household.  Therefore, each census tract, voting district, school district, tribal area, county, municipality, and other geographic area receives accurate results from the census.
