SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Census Bureau developed the Local Update of Census 
Addresses (LUCA) Operation prior to the 2000 Census to meet the 
requirements of the Census Address List Improvement Act of 1994, Public 
Law 103-430. The Census Bureau will use information collected through 
LUCA to help develop the housing unit and group quarters (e.g., college 
dormitory, nursing home, correctional facility) address information 
that it will need to conduct the Decennial Census. LUCA is a voluntary 
operation for governmental units. Participating governments may review 
the Census Bureau's Title 13 U.S.C. confidential list of individual 
living quarters addresses and provide to the Census Bureau address 
additions, corrections, deletions, structure point coordinates, and 
road updates. Participating governments also may provide spatial and 
attribute updates for addresses and roads. Governments electing to 
participate in LUCA also provide contact information, certification of 
their agreement to maintain the confidentiality of the Census Bureau 
address information, responses regarding their physical and information 
technology security capability, product media preference information, 
shipment inventory information, and certification of their destruction 
or return of materials containing confidential data.
    LUCA will be available to tribal, state, and local governments, the 
District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico (or their designated 
representatives) in areas for which the Census Bureau performs a pre-
census Address Canvassing Operation. A majority of governments will 
have some area that will be

[[Page 42647]]

included in the Address Canvassing Operation. LUCA is available to 
legally defined federally recognized Native American and Alaska Native 
areas (including the Alaska Native Regional Corporations), states, 
governmentally active counties and equivalent entities, incorporated 
places, and legally defined Minor Civil Divisions (MCDs) for which the 
Census Bureau reports data. LUCA will occur between January 2017 and 
June 2020. LUCA comprises five stages:

 Advance Notice
 Invitation
 Address Review
 Feedback
 Closeout

Advance Notice

    The Census Bureau provides an advance notice package to all 
eligible tribal, state, and local governments. This package contains 
materials informing the eligible governments of the voluntary operation 
and provides instructions to update contact information and how to 
prepare to participate in the operation. This stage occurs between 
January 2017 and March 2017.

Invitation

    All eligible tribal, state, and local governments receive an 
invitation package. This package provides information on how to 
register for the operation and instructions on how to designate a 
liaison, and allows governments to select the type of materials. 
Additionally, the invitation package provides information regarding the 
responsibility for safeguarding and protecting Title 13 materials. The 
Census Bureau will follow up and send reminder packages to governments 
that do not respond. This stage occurs between July 2017 and September 
2017.

Address Review

    Governments that elect to participate receive materials based on 
their selection from the invitation package. Governments have a maximum 
of 120 days from the date of receipt of materials to complete and 
submit their address and spatial updates to the Census Bureau. The 
Census Bureau will conduct follow up with letters, postcards, and phone 
calls to encourage timely submission of address and spatial updates. 
This stage occurs between February 2018 and May 2018.

Feedback

    The Census Bureau will provide a feedback package to governments 
that participate in the operation. This package includes detailed 
information on the results of the address and spatial updates submitted 
during the operation. This stage occurs between August 2019 and October 
2019.

Closeout

    The Census Bureau provides a closeout letter to governments that 
participated in the operation with notification to destroy or return 
Title 13 materials. The Census Bureau will also conduct follow up with 
letters and phone calls to ensure that Title 13 materials are destroyed 
or returned. This stage occurs between October 2019 and June 2020.

II. Method of Collection

    The information on LUCA contacts, certification of agreement to 
maintain the confidentiality of the Census Bureau address information, 
physical and information technology security capability, product media 
preference, shipment inventory, and certification of the destruction or 
return of materials containing confidential data is collected via the 
completion of electronic or printed forms.

Address Updates

    The information collection on living quarters address additions, 
corrections, deletions, and address attribute updates, at the 
participating government's preference, can be submitted in the form of:
    1. Digital data files output by the Geographic Update Partnership 
Software (GUPS), a desktop application supplied free-of-charge to LUCA 
participants to facilitate the review and update of Census Bureau 
address and map information;
    2. Digital data files formatted to Census Bureau specifications; or
    3. Handwritten annotations to printed-paper address listings and 
address locations on Census block maps (for governments with 6,000 or 
fewer addresses).

Feature Updates

    The information collection on living quarters structure point 
coordinates, roads, and road attribute updates, at the participating 
government's preference, can be submitted in the form of:
    1. Digital data shapefiles output by GUPS;
    2. Digital updates to Census Bureau supplied shapefiles; or
    3. Handwritten annotations on Census Bureau supplied paper maps.
