The U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and takes place every 10 years. The data collected by the decennial census determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities.
Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA)
An accurate population count starts with an up-to-date and complete address list. The LUCA program provides state, local and tribal governments with a once-in-a-decade opportunity to update the Census Bureau’s address list that is used to conduct the decennial census. State, local and tribal government participation in the 2020 LUCA program can contribute to a more accurate population count for their communities.
LUCA workshops have been scheduled to provide an overview of the program, explain how it will benefit your community, and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions. The workshops will also cover program goals, participation methods, and security guidelines. Additional webinars will be scheduled in the near future for those who cannot travel to any of the workshops. More information about these webinars will be coming soon.
