Intro to Census Concepts

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.)

Health Sciences Library, 335 South Columbia Street
Chapel Hill, NC 27599 United States
+ Google Map

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.

Advanced Access to Census Data

January 23, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Health Sciences Library, 335 South Columbia Street
Chapel Hill, NC 27599 United States
+ Google Map

Hands-on workshop to help users understand the strengths of various Census (and other survey) data retrieval tools which allow the creation of custom cross-tabulations (that is, custom data tables).  Tools to be covered include:   DataFerrett; iPUMS; TerraPopulus (in beta); and the Triangle Research Data Center (TRDC).  The first three tools are freely available and we will focus on their census data content (U.S. for DataFerrett; U.S. and international for iPUMS and TerraPopulus).  Researchers must apply to the Census Bureau (or other federal agency, e.g., the Centers for Disease Control) for access to the TRDC in order to utilize various survey microdata.  Application procedures will be discussed.
