LUCA Materials
The Geographic Update Partnership Software (GUPS) is new for LUCA. The GUPS is a self-contained Geographic Information System (GIS) update and processing package. In addition to the software, you will receive the Census Bureau’s address list, address count list by census block, and Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (TIGER) partnership shapefiles.

The Census Bureau offers its address list in digital or paper formats. The digital format requires the use of spreadsheet or database software. The paper format is available only to  governments with 6,000 or fewer addresses.

Maps are offered in digital (TIGER partnership shapefiles that require GIS software) or paper (large format maps are 42 X 36 inches and include a DVD of small format [8.5 X 14 inches] block maps in Adobe PDF) formats.

The Census Bureau offers in-person training using LUCA materials. Self-training aids and Webinars are available online at the LUCA Web site.

What’s new for LUCA?
• Pre-LUCA activities provide more opportunities to submit
address information and receive feedback through the continuous
Geographic Support System (GSS) Program.
• Streamlined participation through the Full Address List Review
provides the opportunity to review and update the Census Bureau's
address list.
• The Census Bureau’s digital address list is available in new,
convenient standard software formats.
• Comprehensive data that includes ungeocoded address and
residential structure coordinates.

Preparing for LUCA
You will receive only the addresses within your jurisdiction’s boundaries that are currently on file with the Census Bureau. By participating in the 2017 Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS), you have the opportunity to verify or update your jurisdiction’s boundaries. Doing this
will ensure that you receive the complete list of addresses for your jurisdiction in LUCA.

To prepare your address list before you receive your LUCA materials:
• Ensure that your address list contains multiunit structure identifiers (such as apartment
numbers for individual units) and that you can distinguish between residential addresses
and nonresidential addresses.
• Identify local address sources, such as building permits, E-911 address files, local utility records, annexation records, and assessment or taxation files.
• Visit the LUCA Web site or plan to attend a LUCA promotional workshop to get more information about participating in the program.
