Data 101

Posted on 28th April 2011 at 08:07

There’s a special workshop planned for this afternoon at the County Expo Center, where Regional Economist Scott Bailey with the Washington Employment Security Department will talk about how you and your organization might be able to use the recently-released data from the Census Bureau. Bailey’s program is called “Unlocking the Mystery–Data 101.” Bailey will provide information on the 2010 Census, along with the 2005-2009 American Community Survey Data. He’ll have information on how this information can be used appropriately, along with data processing tools that will help with things like grant applications and GIS mapping. He’ll also have some information on the regional economic outlook. Contact the Council of Governments at 577-3041 for more information on today’s presentation.
