DOL Census Workshops

Earlier this week, Chip Sawyer, the presenter for the census workshops DOL is offering in July and August, informed me that he is leaving his position at the Center for Rural Studies. I was fortunate enough to find a member of the Census Bureau in Boston who is willing to come to VT this summer. However, I needed to cancel or change the dates and times of the previously scheduled workshops.

The new dates and times are:

July 28th 9:30-11:30, Midstate Library Service Center, Berlin
July 28th 2:00-4:00, Brooks Memorial Library, Brattleboro

Please click on the one you would like to attend to go to its registration page.

Workshop Description:
Do you need demographic and economic data to help you with your strategic planning or to apply for new grant opportunities? Do you want to help your patrons and understand and navigate census data? Workshop attendees will learn the differences between Census 2010 and the American Community Survey and the kinds of data available in each. There will also be a live demonstration of how to access the data through the American FactFinder – the US Census Bureau’s online data access tool.
