Dr. William O’Hare

Demographer and Advisor
Brief info

"Over the last four decades, the net undercount of young children has tripled while the count of adults has improved. Unless something changes in the 2020 Census, we shouldn't expect the count of young children to improve. The Count All Kids initiative is our effort to make sure every child is counted in the 2020 Census."

Dr. William O’Hare has more than 40 years of experience as an applied demographer and expert data analyst. For fifteen years prior to his retirement, he ran the KIDS COUNT project at the Annie E. Casey Foundation. He is the author of the book, The Undercount of Young Children in the U.S. Decennial Census, published in 2015.  He holds a PhD from Michigan State University.
