Census 2020

2020 Census Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Promotional Information Session

The Census Bureau’s Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) program provides local governments a way to contribute to a more complete and accurate census for their communities.  Local Governments are tasked with reviewing and commenting on a list of address supplied by the U.S. Census Bureau. These are the addresses that will be used to deliver Census questionnaires to households throughout the Country.  The data collected in the 2020 Census will be used by federal, state, and local governments for funding, resource planning, and services throughout the next decade.

On June 6, 2017, Council hosted an informational session given by the U.S. Census Bureau to help local governments understanding how to participate in LUCA and develop a plan for their review process. For a copy of the presentation given at the workshop, please click here.

On January 5, 2018, Council hosted a LUCA technical training session that provided technical details for participation, including map and address list updating, geocoding, and other details. For a copy of the presentation given at the workshop, please click here.
