The 2020 Census

The once a decade U.S. Census has far reaching implications, including allocation of billions in federal funding to local communities, and determining Congressional districts and seats. Funding for schools, Medicaid/CHIP, foster-care and adoption services, child-care and nutritional programs are all directly impacted by Census data.  Children, particularly from Black and Latinix families, have been largely under-represented in Census data. 

 

With the recent Covid-19 pandemic compounded by growing fears of government policies affecting immigrant communities, there is a significant risk of undercounting a largely vulnerable population in the 2020 Census, which would in-turn only serve to increase health disparities.  As pediatricians, we share a role to provide trusted information and education.  Please use these handouts to encourage all families to get counted.
