New American FactFinder Workshops at Stamford and Torrington Campuses

Are you interested in learning more about using the New American FactFinder to access data from the 2010 U.S. Census? The Connecticut State Data Center is offering a series of workshops across the state to provide users with an opportunity to learn more about the New American FactFinder in a hands-on workshop environment. Included below are the upcoming workshops, and we will be offering additional workshops at more locations soon.

Locating Census 2010 Data using the NEW American FactFinder

The U.S. Census Bureau introduced a NEW American FactFinder online Census data tool with enhanced searching and data display capabilities in conjunction with the release of 2010 Census data. In this workshop you will learn how to use the new American FactFinder to locate and download data – and create thematic maps – from a wide variety of population, economic, and housing information in the 2010 and 2000 decennial Censuses. From information on individual neighborhoods or zip codes, to state- or national-level data, the new American FactFinder is a powerful tool for navigating the vast amounts of data made available by the U.S. Census Bureau. The new American FactFinder will also soon replace the legacy American FactFinder as the platform for retrieving data from the American Community Survey (the ongoing Census program which produces data on educational attainment, income, occupation, marital status, and other detailed social and economic characteristics), and will also deliver data from the Economic Census. Join us to learn more about how to effectively navigate the NEW American FactFinder.
