This book describes the differences in US census coverage, also
referred to as “differential undercount”, by showing which groups
have the highest net undercounts and which groups have the greatest
undercount differentials, and discusses why such undercounts occur.
In addition to focusing on measuring census coverage for several
demographic characteristics, including age, gender, race, Hispanic
origin status, and tenure, it also considers several of the main
hard-to-count populations, such as immigrants, the homeless, the
LBGT community, children in foster care, and the disabled. However,
given the dearth of accurate undercount data for these groups, they
are covered less comprehensively than those demographic groups for
which there is reliable undercount data from the Census Bureau.
This book is of interest to demographers, statisticians, survey
methodologists, and all those interested in census coverage.
