Memo: FCC Form 477 Census Data Update

November 8, 2021

FCC Form 477 Census Data Update

The FCC has announced that upcoming FCC Form 477 reporting will soon be based off 2020 Census Geography Codes. All FCC Form 477 reporting that includes data as of December 31, 2021, (Form due March 1, 2022) will be based off the updated 2020 Census Geography Codes. Any revisions to 477 filings that included data as of June 30, 2021, or prior will continue to be based off 2010 Census Geography Codes.

Changing of Census data can sometimes be a large undertaking so now is a good time to get ahead of the game and ensure that all of your current data is in line with the 2020 Census Geography Codes.
