The Census Bureau will be providing two workshops at the CLRC office to help us learn more about how to use census data! Both workshops will be offered on Wednesday, November 28. Attend just one or both, it’s your choice!

 

Understanding, Finding, and Constructing Tables from Census Data, 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Workshop Description: 

This workshop is divided into three sections: (1) An introduction that describes the difference between Census (Decennial) data and American Community Survey Statistics–a survey that has deep demographics, (2) How to search for data, interpret the different tables, change their set-up, and download or email the data, and (3) Exercises will be given to those in the audience so that they may practice creating their own tables.

 

Maps: Understanding, Finding, and Constructing Maps Using the Census Portal, 10:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Workshop Description:

This workshop, somewhat of a continuation from the first session, is divided into three sections: (1) An introduction that describes the difference between Census (Decennial) data and American Community Survey Statistics–a survey that has deep demographics, (2) How to search for data, understanding map category breakouts, and using the Census portal to customize your own map, and (3) Exercises will be given to those in the audience so that they may practice.
