Lurie Children’s on the 2020 Census

  • Census data determines the number of congressional seats for each state and federal allocations to programs that children’s hospitals and families rely upon such as Medicaid. The last census was conducted in 2010. During this time, nearly 10% of young children under the age of 5 years old were missed. This resulted in states losing over half a billion dollars a year in funding. Census day is April 1, 2020. The census can be done online or over the phone, in addition to mailing it back.
