Counting All Californians in the 2020 Census

Publication date: 

Independent researcher and demographer Dr. William P. O’Hare published a report on the changing demographics of California and their impact on the 2020 Census. The report focuses on the fastest growing groups in the state as well as the largest nine counties. Dr. O’Hare notes that persons in the aforementioned categories include hard-to-count (HTC) communities that are likely to be missed in the Census. Despite the state’s efforts and resources in place to make sure there is a complete count in California, the underfunding of the 2020 Census increases the risks of higher undercounts.
