This hands-on training immerses participants in Census Bureau data, the most relied-on source for detailed, up-to-date socio-economic statistics covering every community in TX. Participants will learn how to use census data effectively and efficiently for decision-making, planning, grant writing, and community assessments.
Who should attend? The lab is designed for the nonprofit professional in Central Texas and any anyone engaged in health and social services who needs to understand and assess the changing demographics of their community or service area.
In a live computer lab setting, participants will navigate the U.S. Census Bureau website, census.gov’s data tools, interactive maps and quick searches. This will increase the participant’s ability to find population numbers, make race/ethnicity comparisons and locate social/economic characteristics i.e., educational attainment, income, occupation, poverty status for the communities they serve.
