In this event, participants will learn how to access census data for their research. The census provides a wealth of demographic data for researchers, politicians, and businesses, and it is an important avenue for civic engagement in the United States. This workshop, coinciding with the 2020 Census this spring, will introduce participants to the basic principles of working with census data. Both historical and current census data will be covered, as well as mapping census data and data management best practices.

Instructors: Daria Hafner, Research & Instruction Librarian; Dani Henry, GIS & Data Instructional Technologist.

This event is co-sponsored by Clapp Library and the History Department.
