BROOKLYN - Brooklyn has the lowest census response rate in the city and officials say Canarsie is the neighborhood falling behind.

At 45 percent, Brooklyn has the lowest return rate. Community groups say Canarsie residents may not be filling out their forms because of illegal room rentals and distrust.

Beginning in June, census workers will start visiting the homes of those who have not returned their form.
