Black Men Deserve their Fair Share

Black Men are among the most undercounted of all people in the census. Help us ensure we get a fair and accurate count in 2020.

Overview

Black men represent one of the most historically undercounted groups, and undercounts of this group were among the highest observed in the 2010 Census, with net undercount rates reaching 10% for some age groups.

To ensure that Black men are fairly counted and represented in the 2020 Census, Fair Count has established Black Men Count, a statewide Complete Count Committee that will help ensure a fair and accurate count of Black men across the state of Georgia.

A study conducted by the Urban Institute estimated that 67,000 Black men in Georgia could be missed in the 2020 Census. At $2,300 a person every year, Georgia could lose $154 million in federal funding annually for the next decade and tens of thousands of Black men won’t have their fair share of political power.
