Census Bureau to Host Webinar on Data Access

The U.S. Census Bureau this week will hold a webinar to show participants how to access data using data.census.gov. The Census Bureau has developed a new way of accessing data and is close to the official launch of data.census.gov and the retirement of American FactFinder in June.

Starting in July, data.census.gov will be the primary way to access Census Bureau data, including upcoming releases from the 2018 American Community Survey, 2017 Economic Census, 2020 Census and more.  Join this webinar to see a live demonstration of our early summer updates and learn how to access data from the new site.

Thursday, June 20, 2019, at 2 p.m. EDT

Kanin Reese, Chief, Dissemination Outreach Branch, U.S. Census Bureau

The webinar will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. Attendees will be able to ask questions following the presentation.

The 2020 Census may seem far off, but the federal agency that manages the constitutionally-mandated decennial population count is in full-on preparation mode. And while county governments aren’t officially responsible for the tally, they do have a vital role to play in helping the U.S. Census Bureau promote a fair and accurate 2020 Census.

At this year’s MACo Summer Conference, Maryland coordinators for the United States Census will join a live recording of the Conduit Street Podcast, as a fast-paced Q&A-style discussion of our “complete count” efforts. Attendees will learn about state and local resources and best practices to promote the most accurate 2020 Census.

The MACo Summer Conference will be held August 14-17, 2019 at the Roland Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, Maryland. This year’s conference theme is “Winds of Change.”
