New Report Shows Higher Net Undercount of Children in the 2020 Census

Dr. Bill O’Hare published a report reviewing the U.S. Census Bureau Redistricting data that was released on August 12, 2021. This release is the first from the 2020 Census that breaks out data by all children compared to all adults. The data is deeply disturbing to child advocates because it indicates that the Census had a higher net undercount of children in 2020 than it did in 2010. However, we will need to wait for more data to determine how many children were missed (omitted) and if the rate of omitted young and older children grew.
