Preparing for Local Update of Census Addresses webinar

Posted on Updated on

The State Data Center Program hosted a webinar, November 29, 2017, on preparing for Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA), from the viewpoint of state and local governments participating in the review.

This webinar provides an overview of the LUCA process, followed by information on identifying and preparing local address sources, using the block level housing unit counts available from Census, and tools to assist with local address file development.

The presenters are Robert Scardamalia and Dale Miller. Robert Scardamalia served as New York’s Chief Demographer for over 20 years, and was a member of the SDC Steering Committee ahead of the 2000 an 2010 Censuses. Dale Miller is the Principal Planner with the Herkimer and Oneida Counties (New York) Planning Program. He has been involved with each census since 1990, and participated in his region’s LUCA review in 2000 and 2010.

The complete slidedeck from November 29 can be downloaded as a PowerPoint file.

Acknowledgements: The SDC Steering Committee thanks Robert Scardamalia and Dale Miller for delivering this presentation; Census Bureau for hosting the live webinar; and Minnesota State Demographic Center for repackaging this webinar as YouTube videos.

This webinar is the second in a series of Plan to Plan for 2020 webinars organized by the SDC Steering Committee and hosted by the SDC Program.
