    Census Bureau Joins With National and Local Organizations to Count Young Children in 2020

    The U.S. Census Bureau is joining forces with schools and national partners to help ensure the 2020 Census counts all children living in the United States.

    The Census Bureau will highlight this effort at a kid-friendly event Feb. 22, at the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland, Ohio. It will be joined by national and local partners, including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Rainey Institute and Shore Cultural Centre of Cleveland, and the Cleveland Public Library.

    According to the Census Bureau, an estimated 1 million children under the age of 5 were not counted in the last decennial census. Young children are also at risk of not being counted in the 2020 Census, especially those with complex living arrangements like dividing their time between divorced parents or living with multiple families under one roof.
