Deborah Griffin (U.S. Census Bureau)

02/03/2009, at noon in room 6050 ISR-Thompson.

Jointly sponsored with the Survey Research Center, TUESDAY Feb. 3, 12 noon, 6050 ISR

For decades academic researchers have mined decennial census data on a variety of topics. These detailed demographic, housing, and socioeconomic data will no longer be collected once-a-decade in the 2010 Census. Instead, they will be collected continuously using the American Community Survey (ACS). This talk will provide an overview of the types of data products available from the ACS, including both summary tabulations and microdata. It will demonstrate how to access ACS data from the Census Bureau's web site and identify tools provided by the Census Bureau to aid researchers using the data.
