Why is Prince George’s County collaborating with the U.S. Census Bureau?

Success of the census depends on community involvement at every level.  Prince George’s County is collaborating with the U.S. Census Bureau to help increase participation in the 2020 Census and to eliminate under-counting among historically under-counted segments of the population, such as those with young children.

Counting Young Children

Children under the age of 5 are the most under-counted age group. It is important to count every child in Prince George’s County to ensure we can plan for future needs including hospitals, schools, public safety and more.

Counting Young Children: Young children are one of the hardest populations to count – about 5 percent of children under 5 weren’t counted in 2010.
