Do Your Part to Get an Accurate Census of Your Township

Wednesday October 18th, 2017
You can help ensure an accurate census count by taking part in the U.S. Census Bureau’s Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Operation. This is a once-a-decade, voluntary program that allows communities to review and comment on the bureau’s residential address list for their municipality before the 2020 Census.
 
This is the only opportunity for townships to verify that the address lists used for the upcoming census are as accurate as possible.
 
The deadline to register to participate in LUCA is December 15, 2017. Townships are encouraged to take part because certain funding, such as liquid fuels reimbursement, Act 13, and recycling grants, is based on the actual population counts, which will impact your township for the next decade.
 
For more information on LUCA, go to www.census.gov and choose “Geography” at the top of the page and then “Partnerships.”
