Children Under 5 Among Most Undercounted in Last Census

Counting every person in the United States in a census every 10 years is a challenge. But counting every infant and toddler in the country may be one of the most challenging parts of the job. Parents and adults with young children often don’t realize they need to include all children who live with them fulltime or at least most of the time.

In the 2010 Census, nearly 1 million children (4.6% of children under the age of 5) were not counted, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In fact, children under age 5 are one of the largest groups of undercounted people in the United States.

Counting young children will be vitally important in the 2020 Census because population statistics are used by local, state, and federal lawmakers to determine how to spend billions of dollars in federal and state funds annually over the next 10 years. Much of that money funds programs that directly affect children. They include nutrition assistance, Head Start, special education, foster care, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program and housing assistance to help a child’s family.

US Census 2020 Every 10 years, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone in the United States. The 2020 Census will begin in mid-March 2020, when households are contacted through the mail about completing Census forms. Census 2020 will represent the first time in history that people may submit their forms electronically. In addition to determining the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives, the information collected will determine how federal and state funding is distributed to Tennessee and to the local governments of the City Knoxville, Knox County, and the Town of Farragut.

The 2020 Census is important for you and your community.

Count Me in Knox

Getting an accurate count in next year’s U.S. Census is important to Knox County, Knoxville and Farragut. The Census is used to draw congressional district lines, and analyses show that a significant undercount can cost our three local governments several million dollars each year in federal funds that are collected and redistributed back to communities.

Over the 10-year span until the next Census is conducted, tens of millions of dollars are at stake. In the coming months, anticipate seeing nonpartisan educational information about Census 2020 and why a full and complete count matters.
