Updated tally means 300,000 additional New Yorkers could now be counted; as many as live in Cincinnati, Ohio
All information submitted by New York City is protected by federal law. The LUCA address list submitted by DCP does not contain any personal information.
The 122,322 newly added addresses are located across the five boroughs. Brooklyn, the borough with the largest housing stock in New York City, had the most addresses added: 41,600. Addresses added in other boroughs included 30,450 in Queens, 30,140 in Manhattan, 14,500 in The Bronx, and 5,600 in Staten Island.
The addresses added by DCP fill in gaps found in postal lists, or account for missing records of renovations and new construction in the earlier years of this decade. Under a separate Census Bureau program for new construction, which runs into early 2020, DCP is expected to submit tens of thousands of additional new addresses.
The Census Bureau will review the submission and update its official address list, enabling the housing units to receive a Census questionnaire. The City’s submission of more than 122,000 addresses missed by the Census Bureau could add more than 300,000 residents to the City’s population, equal to the total population of St. Louis, Missouri or Cincinnati, Ohio.
