    What level of LUCA (Local Update of Census Address) review are you going to do ?

    Who has recieved their community's LUCA participation packet ?

    Which review option is your community going to do ?
    We are going with Option 1

    Moderator note:
    Please elaborate regarding what "LUCA" stands for, why a community would participate, and what are the options.

    This is a borderline low content post.


    Elaboration per Mod -

    LUCA - Local Update of Census Address
    Why - To correctly reflect known addresses in their community for the 2010 Census.
    Options - There are three discussed in the Census Info.

    We went to a LUCA training in March? where we got the participant guide. We haven't received any correspondence since, so I may send an email to the rep in Dallas to make sure we haven't missed anything.

    We are going with Option 2: Local Address List Submission. This is the one where we submit our computer readable address file (city-style addresses only) in a predefined format. We will only get their information as a reference.

    We decided on this for several reasons:
    • extremely high confidence in our address files.
    • high growth makes it easier to submit a list from scratch rather than edit their's.
    • we were significantly undercounted in 2000, so any opportunity to take it into our own hands we'll jump on.
    • address files easily tweeked into Census format.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."
