State commits to 2020 census

Jackson, Miss. – Mississippi and other states across the Nation are entering the first major phase of the 2020 Census:  comparing local address information received from states, counties, and municipalities to address information housed at the U.S. Census Bureau.

This address update initiative, dubbed the Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Program, is the first step in the 2020 Census process.  LUCA is the only opportunity offered to tribal, state, and local governments to review and help revise the U.S. Census Bureau’s residential address list, which has been the most effective way to contact, survey, and count individuals across the country.

All of Mississippi’s counties and municipalities have committed to participate in LUCA.  In 2010, the last time a decennial census was conducted, only 35 Mississippi counties (48 percent) and 97 cities (32 percent) participated in sharing updated address data with the U.S. Census during LUCA.
