The programs listed below helped us prepare for a successful 2010 Census. These programs were used to help ensure our address lists were up to date in order to ensure complete coverage of all housing units and to help define statistical geographic boundaries to provide meaningful data from the 2010 Census.
The Local Update of Census Addresses program, LUCA, was a decennial census geographic partnership program that allowed the Census Bureau to benefit from local knowledge in developing its MAF/TIGER Database (MTDB) for the 2010 Census. Tribal, state, and local governments were invited to contribute to a more complete and accurate census for their community by reviewing and commenting on the list of residential housing unit and group quarters addresses that the Census Bureau used to deliver questionnaires.
The New Construction program was a decennial census geographic partnership program that helped to ensure new housing units that were under construction leading up to the 2010 Census were captured in the MAF/TIGER Database (MTDB) and would receive a census form.
The Participant Statistical Areas Program was a decennial census geographic program that allowed designated participants to review and suggest modifications to the boundaries for block groups, census tracts, census county divisions and census designated places.
The Tribal Statistical Areas Program was a decennial census geographic program that provided tribes an opportunity to identify and delineate geographic statistical areas and block boundaries in an effort to improve the reporting of data for American Indian and Alaska Native areas.
