Census Resources + Data: Government & Business Perspectives Webinar, June 16, 2020
This webinar includes guest speakers who will be discussing recent changes to Census.gov and the Economic Census. This webinar is for you whether you are new to Census.gov and the Economic Census or you are an expert. We will be looking at the basics and taking a deeper dive into the topics. Michele Hayslett, Librarian for Numeric Data Services and Data Management at UNC at Chapel Hill, will compare and contrast several sources for Census data, including the new data.census.gov; the National Historical GIS (NHGIS) from the Minnesota Population Center; and Social Explorer (a commercial database). She will guide participants through several demonstration searches and then take questions. Jennifer Boettcher, Business Information Consultant of Georgetown University, will provide a next level look into the Economic Census. For context, interested participants are highly recommended to check out her previous talk, Industry Research Using the Economic Census, as her presentation will build off that content. Jennifer will also provide an overview of additional business sources from the Census Bureau which can be used to supplement the Economic Census.
