Boundary and Annexation Survey and LUCA

It is particularly important for local governments to review the boundaries that the Census Bureau has on record for their government by participating in the 2017 Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS), sent in December 2016.  Participants can submit boundary corrections, annexations, name changes, and street updates.   This will ensure that governments that want to later participate in the 2020 Local Update of Census Addresses  (LUCA), will see their full address list, which will be based on the boundaries the Census Bureau has on record from the 2017 BAS.   The deadline for responding to the 2017 BAS is March 1, 2017.  More information on the 2017 BAS is available on the Census website  https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/bas.html, or you may contact Linda Gray of the Chicago Regional Office via email at linda.k.gray@census.gov or phone at (630) 288-9259.
