In preparation for Local Update Census Addresses (LUCA) the Census Bureau made address list counts available. These counts erpresent the number of residential and group quarters addresses in each Census block. These counts can be compared with local address listings and if differences are observed it is important that the local area participates in LUCA, as that is the best way to tell the Census Bureau where to count the local residents.
The Cornell Program on Applied Demographics added information from the 2010 Census (Housing unit counts and household/Group Quarters population) to these counts and linked them to shapefiles, so they can be imported and analysed in a GIS sysem.
