Whether you are in public health or public policy, the nonprofit sector or in business, you can make data-driven decisions using statistics from the nation’s largest statistical agency, the U.S. Census Bureau. This free webinar will introduce you to the American Community Survey, which releases more than 65 demographic, socio-economic and housing measures every year at granular geographic levels. Inform your research while revealing insightful narratives about the areas you serve by analyzing trends, comparing geographies and examining variations of characteristics across communities. These estimates are publicly-accessible via the Census Bureau’s website and API. You’ll receive a brief demonstration of a handful of tools that will help you access these data and learn where to find methodology and technical notes. We’ll conclude with some useful tips on how to sign up for free webinars and on-site trainings.
