African Americans in the 2020 Census

African Americans have been historically undercounted for decades, in part due to the fact that more than one in three African Americans live in hard-to-count census tracts.  African American children under age five were overlooked at roughly twice the rate of young non-Hispanic White children in the 2010 Census. African American men have also been historically undercounted compared to men of other racial or ethnic groups. Being undercounted potentially disadvantages African American families, communities, and neighborhoods.
