Using Census Data for Reference, Research and Grant Writing
The focus of this hands-on training is to learn how to use U. S. Census Bureau data effectively to describe and understand the changing demographics of AZ communities. Census data is the leading source of quality data about the nation’s people and economy.

In a live computer lab setting, participants will use the American Factfinder (data retrieval website) to conduct searches using critical datasets. The 2010 Census/Population Estimates data will be used for population numbers/basic characteristics. The American Community Survey will be used to access social/economic characteristics such as median household income, educational attainment, and veteran and poverty status. In addition to datasets, updates on data visualizations, infographics, and interactive mapping tools will be highlighted as well.

Who should attend? Library services staff from universities, state agencies, and public libraries who use data or assist patrons and researchers who use it to do research, assess community needs, develop plans, implement policies, and write grants. Pauline Nunez of the U.S. Census Bureau, Denver Regional Office, will demonstrate how to use Census data for all those purposes!
