Mississippi's Rural Black, Hispanic Communities Risk Underrepresentation in 2020 Census
Clarion Ledger, 1.13.18
The Center for Urban Research at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York created a map showing areas across the country defined as "hard-to-count," where less than 73 percent of households did not voluntarily respond to the mailed questionnaire. Of the 34 rural, majority black, hard-to-count counties, nearly half were in Mississippi. The remaining 18 were in Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, and Louisiana.
