Document Number: E7-12160
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-06-22
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, Census Bureau
The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) is requesting public comment on the proposed procedures for developing the specific components of an address list review program, known as the Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) program. The Census Bureau will use the LUCA program to help develop the housing unit and group quarters (e.g., college dormitory, nursing home, correctional facility, etc.) address information that it will need to conduct the 2010 Decennial Census. The program will be available to tribal, state, and local governments, and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico (or their designated representatives), in areas for which the Census Bureau performs a precensus address canvassing operation (excluded are sparsely settled areas in the states of Alaska and Maine). The LUCA program includes federally recognized American Indian tribes with reservations and/or off-reservation trust lands, states, and general-purpose local governments, such as cities and townships, for which the Census Bureau reports data. This notice provides information about the three proposed options available to participants for reviewing and annotating the 2010 Census LUCA materials, as well as a description of the feedback materials that will be provided to participants following their participation. A future notice will announce the establishment outside the Department of Commerce (DOC) of the Census Address List Appeals process that will be established by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for the 2010 Census LUCA Operation. The Census Bureau and the OMB will publish a separate Federal Register Notice seeking comments on this Appeal process at a later date.
