Background Discussion
  • The Census Bureau relies on a complete and accurate address list to reach every living quarters and associated population for inclusion in the census.
  • Manatee County received an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census Local Update of Census Addresses Operation (LUCA) as an opportunity to review the U.S. Census Bureau's residential address list prior to the 2020 Census.
  • The primary purpose of the decennial census is to apportion the seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, however, over 1,000 federal programs utilize census data to allocate monies to tribal, state, and local governments.
  • Census data support grant applications for funding community and regional development programs and projects, and can also help plan for future needs.
  • Manatee County has participated in the LUCA process for the 2000 and 2010 Decennial Census.
