Resolution on Counting Children in the U.S. 2020 Census

May 1, 2020


We are concerned that children being undercounted in the U.S. Census is a long-standing problem. Knowing how many children live in a community is critical to ensuring appropriate levels of investment in services and programs designed to promote their well-being.

In fact:

  • Children represent the highest undercounted rate for any age group.
  • Newborn babies and children under 5 are often missed in the Census.
  • In the 2010 Census, Black and Hispanic children were much more likely to be undercounted than White children.
  • Children are more likely to be living in poverty than other age groups.
  • Low-income households are more likely to be missing from the Census.
