Final Procedures for Participation in the 2010 Decennial Census Local Update of Census Addresses Program
This notice documents the final procedures for the 2010 Decennial Census Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) program, as well as the comments received on the proposed procedures published in the June 22, 2007, Federal Register notice (72 FR 34434). The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) is using 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 LUCA program. The LUCA program is offered to tribal, state, and local units of general-purpose governments, such as cities and townships, and the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico (or their designated representatives), in areas where the Census Bureau performs a precensus address canvassing operation. Participants have three options for reviewing and annotating the 2010 Decennial Census LUCA program materials. 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 program. The Census Bureau and the OMB will publish a separate Federal Register notice seeking comments on this Appeals process at a later date.
