Webinar: Finding Census Data – The Essentials
October 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am
This presentation first explains the differences between the Decennial Census and the American Community Survey while also highlighting the idea of sample thresholds, questionnaire logic, and statistical geography. Following this, the presenter will go into the data.census.gov portal to show different ways to access and download the data. Datasets include variables on economic, social, housing and population. Additionally, we will look at the ACS website and get a short tour of topics, datasets and links available there. The presenter will stop a various times during the workshop to allow for questions.
