The Decennial Census collects data every 10 years about households, income, education, homeownership, and more for the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Island Areas. The data is used for apportionment of the seats in the House of Representatives. It is also America's source for population, housing, economic and geographical data. American FactFinder is the most current electronic system for access and dissemination of Census Bureau data on the Internet.

This one day workshop will make sense of the enormous amount of data available at the Census web site with an overview of American FactFinder and examples of specific searches.

Prerequisite: Basic Internet search skills.
