Tuesday, January 26, 2016
When: 10:30am - 12:00pm

Keeping Current @ the USC Libraries Workshop Series

The U.S. Census contains a wealth of data useful to many disciplines. In this workshop, Luz Castillo of the Census Bureau will give an overview of what data the Census collects, the cycle of data collection, and how data can be used. You’ll not only get an overview of the most commonly used information from the Census, but will also learn about the detailed economic and socioeconomic data available through the Census’s many other surveys. You will also learn about the different ways datasets are made available to researchers for further analysis.

Presented by: Luz Castillo, Data Dissemination Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau
