The 2010 census missed more than 10% of all children under age 5 in the U.S.
When we miss young children in the census, it has serious consequences for them, their families, their communities and our nation – with many of those consequences lasting for at least 10 years.
With the 2020 census fast approaching, it is time to make sure we count all our children.

The Count All Kids Committee
The Count All Kids Committee originally formed as national, state, and local children’s organizations and allies that joined together to ensure our nation’s children were counted in the 2020 Census. We continue to work to raise awareness among the public, advocates, allies and policymakers, and to identify opportunities to improve the count of children in each Decennial Census as well as other data that the Census Bureau provides on children – especially young children.
