Census 2020 & Demographics

SDC - The U.S. Census Bureau's Premier Local PartnerThe Oklahoma Department of Commerce operates the State Data Center for the state of Oklahoma. A partner of the U.S. Census Bureau, the State Data Center ensures Oklahoma’s citizens, communities, and businesses have access to critical Census data.

2020 Census

The U.S. Constitution mandates a full count of the population in Article 1, Section 2. The Census Bureau has counted every resident in the U.S. every ten years since 1790.

The 2020 Census will determine the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is used to proportionally distribute billions in federal funds to local communities. The Oklahoma Department of Commerce and our partners are working with local and tribal governments to prepare for Oklahoma’s participation in 2020’s decennial census count.

Complete Count Public Meetings

Getting a complete count ensures Oklahoma receives proper funding for community services, infrastructure projects and much more.

We need your help! We invite all community members to attend these important public meetings.

Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA)

Oklahoma’s participation in the upcoming 2020 count will provide our communities with information vital for funding and planning by the state, tribes and local governments. The Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) is the only opportunity for Oklahoma’s local government officials to review and comment on the U.S. Census Bureau’s residential address list prior to the 2020 Census.
