What is LUCA?

LUCA is the only opportunity offered local governments to review and comment on the U.S. Census Bureau's residential address list for their jurisdiction prior to the 2020 Census. The Census Bureau relies on a complete and accurate address list to reach every living quarters and associated population for inclusion in the census

  • To help your community plan for future needs

Who can participate in LUCA?

Active, functioning, legal governments can participate in LUCA. These include: states,
counties, cities (incorporated places), and townships (minor civil divisions).

What does the training cover?

  • Outline of decennial census and how LUCA fits into that
  • LUCA terminology and schedule
