Did you know children are the most undercounted group in the census? In fact, 10 percent of all children under age 5 were missed in the 2010 Census. Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children (PPC) is the sole voice for young children in both the Keystone Counts coalition and as an affiliate of the Pennsylvania State Data Center, which is represented in the governor’s Complete Count Committee.
In the coming weeks and months, PPC will be producing a variety of print and digital deliverables our partners can use to get the word out the importance of a complete count and the serious consequences that would result from an undercount of young children.
