ACS Data for Small Geographic Areas and Population Subgroups
Date: Wednesday July 10, 2013
Time: Noon-1:00pm Central
The American Community Survey (ACS) provides a continuous stream of updated information for states and local areas, and is revolutionizing the way we use data to understand our communities. In this webinar, Tim Gilbert from the U.S. Census Bureau will provide an overview of ACS data for small geographic areas and population subgroups. Laura Speer, Director of the KIDS COUNT project at the Annie E. Casey Foundation, will discuss how the Foundation uses ACS data to promote the well-being of children across the states. And Frances Deviney, Texas KIDS COUNT Director and Senior Research Associate for the Center for Public Policy Priorities, will provide some examples of ACS data applications for local areas. The panel discussion will be followed by 10-15 minutes of Q&A.
This is the first in a series of webinars designed to help people access and use ACS data more effectively in their work. This webinar is geared toward novice and intermediate ACS data users.
