Intro to Census Concepts

January 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
Health Sciences Library

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.)

Basic Access to Census Data

January 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Health Sciences Library

Hands-on workshop to help users understand the strengths of various Census data retrieval tools, both freely available ones and those to which the library subscribes:  American FactFinder, the Census Bureau’s freely available database; Social Explorer, a commercially licensed tool to which the library subscribes;  and the grant-supported (so, free to you) National Historical Geographic Information System (NHGIS).  These tools provide access to pre-constructed data tables published by the Census Bureau.  Some are better for the most recent data and others are useful for historical data.  Come learn how to choose the best tool for your research, and the ins and outs of each tool.
