2020 Census Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA)

The 2020 Local Update of Census Addresses is the only opportunity offered to local government to review and comment on the U.S. Census Bureau's residential address lists prior to the 2020 Census. Municipalities should participate to help ensure an accurate census count, and fair and accurate funding, based on that count. Refer to these resources for more information about LUCA, contact Linda Gray of the Chicago Regional Office via email at linda.ki.gray@census.gov or phone at (639) 288-0259.
