New data from the U.S. Census Bureau reveals that the 2020 Census missed counting Hispanics, Blacks, and other minority groups and overcounted Whites and Asians. The undercount for Hispanics was as much as 4.99 percent, according to The Washington Post, while Whites were overcounted by about 1.64 percent.

“One wonders about what the implications of this undercount of Hispanics are for their representation in both the federal and state legislatures,” Carsey School Senior Demographer Ken Johnson told The Washington Post.
