Significant 2020 Census Miscounts Affected 14 States, US Census Bureau Admits

Significant 2020 Census Miscounts , Affected 14 States, , US Census Bureau Admits.

The U.S. Census Bureau released its report on the 2020 Census Post-Enumeration Survey (PES) on May 19.

Significant net undercount rates were discovered in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.

Significant net overcount rates were discovered in Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island and Utah.

No census is perfect, Robert Santos, Census Bureau Director, via NPR News.

And the PES allows us to become more informed about the 2020 census by estimating what portion of the population was correctly counted, Robert Santos, Census Bureau Director, via NPR News.

... where we missed people and where some people were counted that shouldn't have been, Robert Santos, Census Bureau Director, via NPR News.

It's a monumental task to count everybody.

And this helps us inform how well we do, Timothy Kennel, Census Bureau Assistant Division Chief, via NPR News.

Lawmakers across the country have already begun to use the 2020 Census data to establish new voting districts in their states.

Voting-rights activists say that 2020 grassroots efforts seemed to have mitigated significant miscounts in their respective areas.

A lot of the southern states were hit with disasters, hurricanes while door-to-door work was going on, Allison Plyer, The Data Center, via NPR News.

But the one thing that states have control over is their own get-out-the-count efforts, Allison Plyer, The Data Center, via NPR News.

We know that Texas invested very little in get-out-the-count, and when they did so, it was very late in the process, Allison Plyer, The Data Center, via NPR News.

Texas was found to have had a significant net undercount rate of 1.92 percent.

More data and demographic detail are needed for a full understanding of our communities and who does — or does not — have access to critical resources, Meeta Anand, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Right, via NPR News.

The Census Bureau also needs to be adequately funded to ensure that inequities from inaccurate counts do not persist into 2030 and beyond, Meeta Anand, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Right, via NPR News
