Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Helping patrons find Census data can be intimidating. This hands-on session will provide you with an overview of Census data and you will gain confidence by practicing searching for and downloading commonly used demographic data using American FactFinder. Participants will develop an understanding of the differences between the Decennial Census and American Community Survey and when to use each data set. The peculiarities of Census geography in Hawaiʻi, local sources of demographic data, and limits to Census data will also be covered.
