Census Workshop: What You Need to Know About the 2010 Census
The decennial census has been called the statistical national family portrait that is taken every ten years. The constitutionally mandated census counts heads, families, housing facts, and social, demographic and economic characteristics. The results may alter the boundaries of legislative districts, the apportionment of legislators within a district and allocated government funding. This workshop covers important changes that researchers and information providers must know about the 2010 census. The session includes virtual tours of resources and hands-on practice with web-based information sources for attendees.
