Counting Everyone in the Digital Age: The Implications of Technology Use in the 2020 Decennial Census for the Count of Disadvantaged Groups

The Leadership Conference Education Fund (The Education Fund) and the Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality (GCPI) are excited to release a new report, “Counting Everyone in the Digital Age: The Implications of Technology Use in the 2020 Decennial Census for the Count of Disadvantaged Groups.” Today’s technology provides both great opportunities to improve the Census, but also presents new challenges in counting everyone, especially members of historically disadvantaged groups. This report details these challenges and provides recommendations for a secure and accurate 2020 Census.
