Title: Assessing a Community – By The Numbers with Census Data
Guest Speaker: Susana Guerra Privett, Data Dissemination Specialist, Customer Liaison & Marketing Service Office, U.S. Census Bureau
Date: **Wednesday, September 19, 2018**
Time: 10am CT / 9am MT
**Please note this date is shifted from our normal Wednesday.**

Description: This workshop will train participants in using the most relied-on source for detailed, up-to-date socio-economic statistics covering every community in the nation. This forum is designed for organizations that use data for community analysis, grant writing, needs assessment, and planning.

With hands-on training, all on census.gov, attendees will use the American Factfinder (data search tool) and QuickFacts to gain a better understanding of the Census terms and geography levels, learn differences between 2010 Census for population numbers/basic characteristics, and American Community Survey for social/economic characteristics such as age, household income, poverty status, disability, transportation and housing. Suggestions for tables and topics are offered.
