Spreadsheet: Consequences of the Young Child Undercount in The 2010 Decennial Census by State

This spreadsheet details the estimate amount of funding lost per each child not counted in each state per year, the net undercount of young children in the 2010 census for each state, and the federal funds lost each year in five programs as a result of the undercount. These are conservative estimates of the impact of the young child net undercount, since a significant number of children ages 5-9 were also missed in many states and since this includes only five of the over 300 programs that use Census data to help allocate funds to states, but they are a helpful visualization nonetheless.
