We've Got The Numbers! Understanding, Finding, and Constructing Tables from Census Data
This workshop is divided into 3 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. (3) Exercises will be given to those in the audience so that they may practice creating their own tables. Attendees are urged to bring their devices.
This session is intended for library staff who work with patrons using Census data for various purposes.
