Detroit — a majority Black metropolitan city of more than half a million residen

Detroit — a majority Black metropolitan city of more than half a million residents — became the largest U.S. city to challenge the national headcount of the 2020 census, with local officials claiming that nearly a tenth of its population was left out of the final totals, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.⁠

In its filing to the bureau last week, Detroit claimed that at least 8% of occupied homes in 10 of Detroit’s neighborhoods were undercounted and that the data, which is collected every decade, is inaccurate. The discrepancy was revealed in December after an independent analysis conducted by the University of Michigan and Wayne State.⁠

“The Census Bureau now has an obligation to set the record straight,” Mayor Michael Duggan said in a letter to the bureau, adding that a lack of resources and an insufficient number of counters throughout the city resulted in an inaccurate figure that is likely to have a chilling effect on the Michigan city for the next decade.⁠
