Minority populations have often been undercounted in past censuses. As of August 2008, minorities were roughly one third of the U.S. population and are expected to become the majority by 2042. The nation's population of children is expected to be 62 percent minority by 2050, which is up from 44 percent today. The Census Bureau works hard to make sure that all minorities are counted. The 2010 Census form was available in six languages; language assistance guides were available in 59 languages. (Source: https://www.census.gov/newsroom/releases/archives/population/cb08-123.html)
