Do kids count in the Census?

Absolutely! Parents should include all children living in their home – including non-relatives and children with no other place to live, even if they are only living there temporarily. Parents should also include newborns who are still in the hospital. Children who split time between two homes should be counted at the home where they live and sleep most of the time. If the child spends equal amounts of time between two homes, count them where they stayed on April 1.
