Using Census Data for Grant Writing & Community Assessment

Thursday, February 14, 2013 8:30am - 12:00pm

This training focuses on learning how to effectively use census data to describe your community/client group in grants and community assessments. Census 2010 and American Community Survey data is the most relied-on source for detailed, up-to-date socio-economic statistics covering every community in Arizona.

In a live computer lab setting, students will use the American FactFinder (data search tool) to conduct searches using the Census 2010 for population numbers/basic characteristics, and American Community Survey for social/economic characteristics such as educational attainment, income, language spoken at home, and poverty status. Special emphasis will be placed on concepts used in grant writing and social impact statements, understanding of race/ethnicity terminology and downloading data into usable formats.

This is the "Intermediate" version of this workshop.
