Think about the babies who will be born in 2020.
The first smiles. The first steps. The first words. In the years to come, some may need day care, after-school care, or school lunch programs.
That's why it's so important that we count newborn babies and young children accurately. Responding to the 2020 Census can help shape resources for children and their communities over the next decade. This could include support for health insurance programs, hospitals, child care, food assistance, schools, and early childhood development programs.
