Media Advisory — Census Bureau to Host Web Conference on New American FactFinder
On Jan. 18, the U.S. Census Bureau will launch a revamped version of its data delivery tool, American FactFinder. The new American FactFinder offers a fresh look, new tools and easier access to a wide range of Census Bureau statistics. In order to prepare users for this change, the Census Bureau will host a Web conference to demonstrate the enhanced features and functions of the new and improved FactFinder.
The launch of this updated tool was timed for the release, starting in February, of the local-level 2010 Census data that state governments use to redraw the boundaries of their congressional and state legislative districts.
The Web conference will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. Reporters will be able to ask questions once the presentation is complete.
