Intro to Census Concepts
January 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
(Please Note: this the day before classes start!) Do you know that variables like income and educational attainment are no longer part of the decennial census? Do you understand the differences between the decennial long form methodology and that of the American Community Survey (ACS)? If your answer to these questions is no, this class is for you! We will compare and contrast content and methodology of the decennial census long form and the ACS, and review Census terminology and geographies. (This class or equivalent knowledge is required for the Basic and Advanced Access classes.)
