What is LUCA?

One of the first steps to preparing for Census 2020 involves the Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA).  In most simple terms, LUCA is an opportunity or tribal, state, and local governments to review and update the U.S. Census Bureau’s residential address list for their jurisdiction. By reviewing the master list of residential addresses, local officials provide critical feedback around the accuracy of the list, which helps the bureau determine where to count individuals.  LUCA is an essential first step for ensuring an accurate census count.
