Minnesota groups prep for challenging 2020 census

By Eric Roper

“Many of our partners … represent populations that are still not fully showing up in the census over time,” said foundation President Kathy Annette, a co-chair of the state Complete Count Committee. “For us, rural [Minnesota] in general doesn’t show up very well overall. And we also know young children — especially infants — immigrants, and Native Americans” are undercounted.

Minnesota is one of a handful of places with state-level staff already dedicated to the census, located in the state demographer’s office. Demographer Susan Brower and her staff are often on the road prepping local governments about the census and encouraging them to form their own complete count committees.
