Census Data Workshops Presented by CMAP

Census Products for Urban Planning (CPUP)

CMAP will host its annual hands-on workshops introducing U.S. Census data use for urban planning. The primary goal of the CPUP program is to take the mystery and confusion out of navigating the U. S. Census Bureau website. Data users accomplish this through hands-on experience using the website.

Each program includes two sections. The first is a general introduction to the U.S. Census website. The second portion features more specific census data by topic areas shown below. Community leaders, municipal planning staff, volunteers and private sector planners could find the workshops useful practical. Contact Jon Hallas by phone (312)386-8764 or email:  jhallas@cmap.illinois.gov, for more information or to RSVP

Our venue for CPUP programs has changed. Presentations will be made using GoToMeeting software. Materials for each presentation and instructions for using GoToMeeting will be sent a few days before the program is given. Using GoToMeeting allows participants to participate from their own offices instead of requiring travel to CMAP. Preregistration is, of course, required. All presentations will be held from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.

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.
