Effective Use of Census 2000 and Thematic Mapping

The Census Workshop will teach participants to perform in-depth demographic studies using the recently released 2000 U.S. Census. Participants will learn what information is available on the 2000 Census and how to easily extract the specific data they need. Each student will learn how to present detailed demographic data in compelling new ways.

State and Federal grants increasingly require in-depth demographic study of the population you serve - this hands-on workshop will teach you how to succeed.

A highlight of the workshop is when each student learns to create custom thematic maps showing detailed variations of the demographics within their community. Thematic maps allow students to map their community and “shade” the map to show which neighborhoods have the highest concentrations of numerous demographic variables such as poverty, income, race, age, ancestry, educational attainment, disabilities, etc.

Emphasis will be placed on compiling the race, income, poverty, language, transportation, education, workforce and housing characteristics that are of interest to your unique needs.
