Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau developed the Local Update of Census Addresses Operation (LUCA) prior to the 2000 Census to meet the requirements of the Census Address List Improvement Act of 1994, Public Law 103-430. The Census Bureau will use information collected through LUCA to help develop the housing unit and group quarters (e.g., college dormitory, nursing home, correctional facility) address information that it will need to conduct the decennial census. LUCA is voluntary for governmental units. Participating governments may review the Census Bureau's Title 13 U.S.C. confidential list of individual living quarters addresses and provide to the Census Bureau address additions, corrections, deletions, and location coordinates (latitude/longitude). Participating governments also may provide spatial and attribute updates for roads. Governments electing to participate in LUCA also provide contact information, certification of their agreement to maintain the confidentiality of the Census Bureau address information, responses regarding their physical and information technology security capability, product media preference information, shipment inventory information, and certification of their destruction or return of materials containing confidential data.

LUCA will be available to tribal, state, and local governments, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico (or their designated representatives) in areas for which the Census Bureau performs a pre-census Address Canvassing Operation. A majority of governments will have some area that will be included in the Address Canvassing Operation. LUCA is available to legally defined federally recognized Native American and Alaska Native areas (including the Alaska Native Regional Corporations), states, governmentally active counties and equivalent entities, incorporated places, and legally defined Minor Civil Divisions (MCDs) for which the Census Bureau reports data. LUCA will occur between January 2017 and June 2020. LUCA comprises five stages:

  • Advance Notice
  • Invitation
  • Address Review
  • Feedback
  • Closeout

Advance Notice

The Census Bureau provides an advance notice package to all eligible tribal, state, and local governments. This package contains materials informing the eligible governments of the voluntary LUCA operation and provides instructions to update contact information and how to prepare to participate in LUCA. This stage occurs between January 2017 and March 2017.

Invitation

All eligible tribal, state, and local governments receive an invitation package. This package provides information on how to register for the operation, instructions on how to designate a liaison, and enables governments to select the type of materials. Additionally, the invitation package provides information regarding the responsibility for safeguarding and protecting Title 13 materials. The Census Bureau will follow up and send reminder packages to governments that do not respond. This stage occurs between July 2017 and September 2017.

Address Review

Governments that elect to participate receive materials based on their selection from the invitation package. Governments have a maximum of 120 days from the date of receipt of materials to complete and submit their address and spatial updates to the Census Bureau. The Census Bureau will conduct follow up with letters, postcards, and phone calls to encourage timely submission of address and spatial updates. This stage occurs between February 2018 and May 2018.

Feedback

The Census Bureau will provide a feedback package to governments that participate in LUCA. This package includes detailed information on the results of the address and spatial updates submitted during LUCA. This stage occurs between August 2019 and October 2019.

Closeout

The Census Bureau provides a closeout letter to governments that participated in LUCA with notification to destroy or return Title 13 materials. The Census Bureau will also conduct follow up with letters and phone calls to ensure that Title 13 materials are destroyed or returned. This stage occurs between October 2019 and June 2020.

The information on LUCA contacts, certification of agreement to maintain the confidentiality of the Census Bureau address information, physical and information technology security Start Printed Page 78110capability, product media preference, shipment inventory, and certification of the destruction or return of materials containing confidential data is collected via the completion of electronic or printed forms.
