Resources for the 2020 Census
The resources below provide valuable information and guidance on the 2020 Census, making it easy for partners, stakeholders, and the general public to ensure Hawaiʻi counts.
Everyone in Hawaiʻi must be counted in the Census—only once and in the right place. Certain populations, however, are more likely than others to be missed. Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPIs), people with limited English proficiency, people with low incomes, and young children are some of the groups that are often undercounted. Those who are considered hard-to-count (HTC) are less likely to respond to the Census without outreach, assistance, and guidance.

Only 68% of Hawaiʻi residents participated in the 2010 census. Young children are especially likely not to be counted. Because of this undercount of children, Hawaiʻi lost about $16 million in critical federal funding for healthcare, childcare, adoption assistance, and foster care.
Hawai‘i Children’s Action Network has gathered these resources to help spread the word about the Census this year in order to make a difference for the next 10.
