In preparation for the 2020 Census, Black Child Development Institute (BCDI)-Atlanta launched Black Children Count - a Complete Count Committee. Young children, along with migrants and minorities are identified as “hard-to-count populations” by the United States Census Bureau - young children potentially due to complex family relationships and migrants and minorities likely due to fear of legal aspects of being counted, unfamiliarity with census benefits, and difficulty with dominant national language(s). 


It is the goal of the Black Children Count Complete Count Committee to increase the number of migrants and minorities who participate in the 2020 Census and include their young children in the household count.

In BCDI-Atlanta's Black Children Count initiative, we are excited to support families, childcare centers, and communities in ensuring all children are counted in the 2020 US Census. We are inviting members and allies to take part in our community outreach by connecting with child care centers in hard-to-count areas to provide support in helping their parents and stakeholders complete the 2020 Census questionnaire. If you are interested in virtual outreach activities with Georgia's childcare centers, please complete this Complete Count Committee Sign-Up form and a Complete Count Committee Chair will contact you soon with more information. We are officially kicking off this work on April 1 - National Census Day.
