Editor’s note: Keystone Counts has identified 1.2 million Pennsylvania households in 24 counties at high risk for a Census undercount, so readily available sources of information are key to ensure accuracy. In this graphic explainer, cartoonist Josh Neufeld has outlined issues to watch for as the 2020 census gets underway, especially the risk of undercounts and miscounts.

The downloadable resource from Journalist’s Resource  — a project of Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center and the Carnegie-Knight Initiative, which curates, summarizes and contextualizes high-quality research on newsy public policy topics — is thus an especially helpful resource.
