Workshop Descriptions

Community Analysis with Census Data

This workshop is designed for data users seeking to capture the key demographic, social, economic, and housing indicators that define their community and neighborhoods. Specific topics include: accessing data for small area geographies, data variables used in community analysis, and using American FactFinder to navigate Census products. Attendees will go online to obtain age, income, poverty, race and ethnicity, and other measures to create community profiles, tables, and maps.
Using Census Data to Track Trends

This presentation will provide training in ways to determine changes in data over time; and is useful for research and planning purposes. The training will include a basic overview of navigating American FactFinder and Census website, a brief review of data collection methods, defining and locating time periods for comparison, and creating tables to track the results.
