What You Need to Know About the Census for Children and Families. The stakes of an undercount in the 2020 Census for New York children and families cannot be overstated. An undercount would lead to a cut to federal programs essential to child and family well-being, would distort data critical to sound policy-making. Unfortunately, children under five are often missed in the census. On March 9, the Schuyler Center and the NYS Council on Children and Families provided a 30 minutes webinar on how agencies serving children and families can prepare for the census. Topics covered include: the importance of the census, tools you can use to educate staff and families about the census and where you can find materials and educational resources.
