Counting Kids in the U.S. Census

Posted by on March 22, 2010

Children have been undercounted in every census since the first one in 1790.  Local communities rely on census information in planning for schools, child care, health, and other critical services. The Annie E. Casey Foundation is supporting the Census Bureau’s efforts to ensure that parents and child care providers count their babies and young children on their 2010 Census forms so all children can benefit tomorrow from community services.

• Download the toolkit featuring Dora the Explorer, the popular children’s cartoon character, to help spread the word among colleagues, members, and friends.
• Read the Casey report, Why Are Young Children Missed So Often in the Census?

Visit the KIDS COUNT data center to see how children are faring in your state or community.
