2010 Census Fact Finder and how to get the data you want!

CVRPC has scheduled a webinar on tips and tricks to using factfinder2.gov for gathering 2010 Census data by town and by dataset. As I discovered at a meeting last night, it is not easy. So, we encourage you to join us on Thursday, July 28 at 2 p.m. at CVRPC’s offices to view this webinar and learn the tricks we need to get our data! We believe that once the webinar has been viewed, that it will be available at the website of the Council for Community and Economic Research for additional viewing, but we will have to confirm this information. We are also hoping that we will be able to acquire a DVD of the webinar that we could then share with town officials who want to view the presentation or who would like staff to present the information to a larger group in their locale.

There is no need to register for this July 28 at 2 p.m. webinar at CVRPC’s office, but in order to ensure that we have enough chairs, it would be handy if you let us know you plan on attending. Thanks.
