Written by CCC members and researchers at Portland State University, this article outlines data and research practices that misrepresent and negate the experiences and identities of communities of color including population undercounts, understudy of the unique characteristics of communities of color, inaccuracies in how data are codified and analyzed, and data collection efforts that are infused with white centrism and a colorblindness that renders issues minimized and the experiences of communities of color obscured.
