The Local Demographic Analysis Workshop is designed to help human service providers, grant writers, researchers or anyone that would like to easily look up and analyze demographic characteristics such as race, income, age, language, transportation, employment and housing. This is a hands-on workshop that will teach you to analyze, extract and present 2000/1990 Census (focusing on long form SF3 data), American Community Survey and Census Supplemental information.

In addition to learning demographic analysis methods, participants will receive practical analysis tips and construct a 1990-2000 Community Change Profile for each city and its Census tracts. While each workshop is customized for the city in which it’s held, the techniques presented are directly applicable to ANY other location.

Space is limited to 16 participants, so sign up soon!
