We've mentioned it before, but in Census years, children are the most likely to be undercounted. According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, young children are missed at a higher rate than any other group, with 1 million children undercounted in the 2000 Census.
In order to highlight the need for counting children, the Annie E. Casey Foundation has developed a toolkit (which includes Dora the Explorer factsheets and web buttons) to help spread the word. Remember, when children are undercounted, it leads to a loss of fund for schools, HeadStart, and other important programs. Please work with your friends, colleagues, and clients to make sure everyone is counted in the Census this year!
