Where are 1 Million Children?

Another question might be: Why are Young Children Missed So Often in the Census? A new report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation looks at why children are undercounted, what can be done about it and why the undercount is important to states and localities. As to the last point, one major reason is the loss of federal funding particularly Special Ed Grants, Head Start, SCHIP, Title IVE and Teacher Quality Grants.
