“If you underfund the Census, you get an undercount,” says Kenneth Prewitt, who directed the bureau during the 2000 Census. “And if you don’t count people, they are politically invisible, in effect.” (Time, May 2017). Considering the funding and planning challenges facing Census 2020, it’s imperative that philanthropy take action now to support a fair and accurate count.
