MAF/TIGER Accuracy Improvement Project (MTAIP) Focused on improving horizontal positional accuracy for streets in TIGER This enables use of GPS technology to record structure locations in the field, which in turn improves accuracy and efficiency
What is the MAF? An accurate and up to date inventory of all known living quarters in the United States, Puerto Rico, and associated Island Areas. Reengineering the 2010 Decennial Census Program
MTAIP Sources Priority is to use Tribal, State, County,and Local (TSCL) GIS Files as the source for improving TIGER coordinates Census Bureau Regional Offices obtained qualifying GIS files from governmental source providers
MTAIP Sources (Cont.) Harris Corporation acquires source where no TSCL source meeting the standard is available --imagery --commercial GIS --field collection of centerline GPS a last resort
Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) First implemented for Census 2000 Purpose is to improve the census address list using local knowledge Confidentiality of address information Changes validated in the pre-census address canvassing operation
Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Improvements for 2010 LUCA program* Single cycle of review for all address types Longer review period, more advance notice More comprehensive communication Proposal for state participation eligibility Improved training Participant software *Contingent upon availability of resources
Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Options for LUCA participants: Full address list review, Title 13 confidential Provide local address list (city-style) for Census Bureau matching, Title 13 confidential Provide local address list (city-style) for Census Bureau matching, no Title 13 confidentiality
Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Other LUCA features of interest: Treatment of non-city style address areas Feedback to participants Appeals process

Statistical Areas Programs Census tracts, block groups, census county divisions, census designated places Criteria announced in Federal Register Comments due before July 5, 2007
Statistical Areas Programs Census Tract Criteria. Lower the minimum population threshold for most tracts. Minimum: 1,200 Maximum: 8,000 Optimum: 4,000 Housing unit counts may be used to meet tract thresholds. Minimum: 480 Maximum: 3,200 Optimum: 1,600 All types of populated tracts must meet the same thresholds. Wherever possible conform to American Indian reservations. Special tracts may be created for large special land use areas without housing units or population (e.g., large public parks, forests).
Statistical Areas Programs Block Group Criteria Increase the minimum population threshold. Minimum: 1,200 Maximum: 3,000 Optimum: none Housing unit counts may be used to meet BG thresholds. Minimum: 480 Maximum: 1,200 Optimum: none Special BGs may be created for large special land use areas without housing units or population (e.g., large public parks, forests).
Statistical Areas Programs Census Designated Place (CDP) Criteria A CDP cannot have zero population and zero housing units. A CDP cannot be coextensive with a governmentally active minor civil division (i.e., township). This change will reduce redundancy in place and county subdivision data tabulations for the following states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin A CDP must represent a single, distinct community. A CDP that represents multiple, distinct communities, and the hyphenated name typically assigned to represent such CDPs, will not be permitted. Exceptions will be made for communities whose identities have merged and in which both names commonly are used together.
Statistical Areas Programs Draft Schedule (as of March 2007) 2007 Publication of proposed PSAP criteria in the Federal Register 3rd Public submission of comments to the proposed criteria 2008 Publication of final PSAP criteria in the Federal Register Primary PSAP participants identified. Distribute PSAP materials to participants Participants complete review and update of PSAP boundaries 2009 Verification of boundaries by participants.
