Targeting Areas to Improve the Count of Young Children in the 2020 Census: A New PRB Resource

At least 4 million U.S. children under age 5 live in neighborhoods with a very high risk of undercounting young children in the 2020 Census, according to a recent analysis by Population Reference Bureau (PRB). Now that the 2020 Census is underway, we can assess response rates in these high-risk areas and pinpoint communities that are falling behind. In this webinar, Mark Mather (Associate Vice President, U.S. Programs, PRB) demonstrates new PRB resources—a series of interactive maps and databases—that combine neighborhood data on undercount risk for young children with 2020 Census response rates. We hope these resources will help advocates identify new areas to target for census outreach and child-focused messaging to improve the count in 2020. This project is funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
