Date: Wednesday, September 19th, 2018
Time: 10:00am – 11:00am CT / 9:00am – 10:00am MT
Description: This workshop will train participants on using the most relied-on source for detailed, up-to-date socio-economic statistics covering every community in the nation. This forum is designed for organizations that use data for community analysis, grant writing, needs assessment, and planning.
With hands on training, all on census.gov, attendees will use the American Factfinder (data search tool) and QuickFacts to gain a better understanding of the Census terms and geography levels, learn differences between 2010 Census for population numbers/basic characteristics, and American Community Survey for social/economic characteristics such as age, household income, poverty status, disability, transportation and housing. Suggestions for tables and topics are offered.
