The Decennial Census happens every ten years and it is the only time we count everyone–adults, children and babies, citizens, immigrants, and visitors. Census data informs the allocation of federal, state, and local dollars, and states, localities, and businesses use census data for community planning, including where to open new stores and distribute school funding.
Yet, in 2010, one in five children were missed because their family did not return the form, and four in five children lived in families that returned the form but didn’t include the young child on it. An under-count of young children in the Census is critical to the child’s and family’s access to resources such as housing, jobs, equitable education, and health care. Early childhood funders also face obstacles in advocating for children and families when Census data is unreliable and misrepresents demographic data.
