Webcast: Using Census Data for Community and Neighborhood Analysis
REPLAY VIDEO: A community analysis workshop hosted by United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County and Community Information: NOW (CI:NOW), in Partnership with US Census Bureau, Denver Region.
This workshop will train participants on using the most relied-on source for detailed, up-to-date socio-economic statistics covering every community in the San Antonio and South Texas region. It is designed for nonprofit advocacy and social service delivery organizations that use data for budget analysis, grant writing, needs assessment and planning.
In a live computer lab setting, students will use the American Factfinder data search tool; conduct searches using the Census 2010 for population numbers/basic characteristics, and American Community Survey for social/economic characteristics such as school enrollment, household income, poverty status, nativity and language spoken at home. Special emphasis will be placed on researching small area data to understand the demographics of your service area. CI:NOW will give an overview of the NOWData site along with examples from the Weave visualization tool on www.cinow.info.
