Census 2020

The U.S. Census takes place once every ten years, and more than $600 billion annually in federal assistance to states, localities, and families is distributed based on that data. Historically the census has missed disproportionate numbers of people of color, young children and the rural and urban poor and going into 2020, additional communities, including immigrants and refugees,  unmarried women, and the LGBTQ community are at risk of being missed.  Undercounting leads to inequality in political power and in access to public funding and private investment for these communities.
