Why the Census Matters for People with Disabilities: A Guide to the 2020 Census Operations & Challenges
The Census Bureau has identified people with disabilities as a hard-to-count population, which means they are at a greater risk of being undercounted in the census. The 2020 Census will impact everyone, including people with disabilities, and it is important for everyone to know what resources are available and what funding resources will be impacted if the 2020 Census is not fair and accurate. This report coauthored by the National Disability Rights Network and Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality examines why people with disabilities are hard-to-count, the accessibility of the census and what is at stake for the next 10 years.
