About census:

Since the US Census does not count the Bay Area as its own singular entity, KRON4 compiled the data by combining numbers from all nine Bay Area counties. That is how the Bay Area area’s total population was calculated.

U.S. Census Day was on April 1, 2020. The census is taken every 10 years. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the census had to make operational adjustments in its counting and data gathering.
