How to Use the Population Reference Bureau’s Young Child Risk of Undercount Database

This resource describes how to use the Young Child Risk of Undercount database prepared by the Population Reference Bureau (PRB) and Dr. William O’Hare. The purpose of this database is to help people identify neighborhoods and census tracts where the risk of undercounting young children in the 2020 Census is the highest. Identifying the census tracts where young children are most at risk of being missed in the 2020 Census will allow advocates, complete count committees, elected officials, non-profit organizations, and funders interested in getting a complete and accurate count of young children to concentrate resources in those areas.
