PRB Resources to Improve the Count of Young Children in the 2020 Census (August 27 Update)

Mark Mather (PRB)

PRB has produced an updated series of tables and maps identifying neighborhoods with a very high risk of undercounting young children in combination with low 2020 Census self-response rates. As of August 27, the average self-response rate in census tracts with a very high risk of undercounting children under the age of 5 was 59%, while the mean self-response rate in tracts with a low risk of undercounting young children—or a potential net overcount—was much higher, at 72%. The mean response rate across all census tracts in the United States was 64%.
