It might seem like a long way off, but the 2020 Census is right around the corner. In in little over two years, census forms and postcards allowing online completion of the census for the first time will be in the mail. Many things will occur between now and the “Census Day” of April 1, 2020 to ensure that each person and housing unit are counted once, only once, and in the right place.
The Center for Public Affairs Research and Nebraska State Data Center is helping to organize activities related to the 2020 Census. We will list the most current meeting, training, and volunteer information here. Bookmark this page to stay informed and involved.

2020 Census Local Update of Census Addresses Operation to Begin
Starting in July, governments around the country will start the process of ensuring the accuracy of their address lists through the 2020 Census Local Update of Census Addresses operation. LUCA is a voluntary, once-a-decade opportunity for governments to add, correct or delete addresses on the lists and maps used to conduct the decennial census. An accurate and complete census helps governments plan for future infrastructure, program and service needs.
