It’s All in the Tools Webinar Series


This Census Academy webinar series offers hands-on workshops in accessing topical exercises in locating the data you seek using the Census Bureau data tools. This is a great opportunity from the inexperienced to the advanced to walk through the tools with our experienced staff.

Each webinar will have one or more required prerequisite(s) for our data users to review before attending the workshop as we do not plan to cover the survey or program information that was covered in our FY22 webinar series. Our goal is to get you into the tools locating the data for specific topics or activities.

Each webinar is scheduled to last 90 minutes and will start at 2:00PM ET. All our webinars are free and open to the public. Registration is limited and will be available on a first-come first-served basis.
