Clustering of Young Children in “Problematic” Census Tracts

A new report from Count All Kids looks at “the distribution of young children living in two kinds of census tracts which are likely to be problematic” in the 2020 Census results:

  1. “young children living in low self-response census tracts”; and
  2. “young children living in  tracts where the self-response rate decreased by 10 percentage points or more between 2010 and 2020.”

The report claims that this data offers “empirical evidence about what to expect when the data on young children are released for the 2020 Census.”
