Accurate counting of the population via the census is essential for allocation of federal dollars, assigning proportional representation within the House of Representatives, and providing demographic information to inform policy decisions at all levels of government. Even in non-pandemic times, marginalized communities are the most likely to be undercounted. An accurate census count is critical to ensure traditionally undercounted groups, like Latinx, Black, low-income, and non-English-speaking households are adequately documented. The Census Bureau reported missing 2.1% of Black Americans and 1.5% of Latinx Americans in its 2010 count, while overcounting non-Latinx White Americans by 0.84%. Without robust and accurate data, the 2020 Census could be used to weaken the voting power of voters of color via partisan gerrymandering and systematically under-fund jurisdictions with larger proportions of non-White residents.
