Kewaunee County can proudly say: “We're number 117!” That's something to boast about when it comes to national rankings for Census 2020 compliance. Nearly 74-percent of Kewaunee County residents have handed in their census forms, which bests the state average of nearly 69-percent and the national average of nearly 62-percent compliance. Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt believes residents see census participation as a civic duty that improves the area's chances of receiving more tax dollars.
