Compiling statewide data for public use, the new KIDS COUNT in Delaware Fact Bookhttp://udspace.udel.edu/handle/19716/24098's central theme is obtaining an accurate and complete count in Census 2020. Research has shown that 1 million of America's youngest residents were not counted in the last census- the worst net undercount for any age group.
"With the census less than a year away, now is the time for us to plan and prepare," said Janice Barlow, director of KIDS COUNT in Delaware. "Census data are used for so much-- representation, funding allocations and planning. Decisions for things like neighborhood improvements, public health, education and transportation are all made based on this kind of data."
In Delaware, more than $500 million flows to the state each year from the 10 largest federal programs that serve children. When kids aren't counted, communities are in danger of receiving less than their fair share of federal dollars for programs like Head Start, school lunches, public health insurance and child care- programs and services that help young children in low-income families get a healthy start in life.
The 2019 Fact Book shows that public investment and policy choices make a difference in the outcomes kids experience. An accurate census is essential for that. According to Barlow, "while the census is ultimately a federal responsibility, states have a lot to gain or lose based on response rates. Therefore, Delaware and its communities have an incentive to ensure a successful local count." KIDS COUNT in Delaware offers the following recommendations to achieve a more accurate census:
It is evident that these recommendations will cost Delaware and communities dollars but the gain of federal funding for important, vital programs more than makes up for census advocacy costs.
The KIDS COUNT in Delaware 2019 Fact Book is now available. Additional data are available at http://datacenter.kidscount.org, which contains the most recent national, state and local data on hundreds of indicators of child well-being. The Data Center allows users to create maps, trend graphs and bar charts for use in publications and on websites, and to view real-time information on mobile devices.
