The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a webinar to discuss the upcoming release of the 2010 Census American Indian and Alaska Native Summary File. While the webinar will not discuss the statistics themselves, it will provide guidance on how to access and use the statistics, and a question-and-answer session. Embargo subscribers will have access to the statistics beginning Tuesday, Dec. 11. The embargoed information may not be published or posted until the public release at 12:01 a.m. (EST) Dec. 13.
The summary file provides detailed demographic information from the 2010 Census for more than 1,500 American Indian and Alaska Native tribal groupings, specific American Indian tribes, and specific Alaska Native villages that had a national population of at least 100 and for a variety of geographic areas, down to the census tract level. The file has the largest number of American Indian and Alaska Native groups of any Census Bureau data product released on American FactFinder to date, and it adds a new layer of detail to the population and housing topics previously released from the census. Additionally, for the first time, the summary file includes detailed information on individual Central American, South American and Mexican American indigenous groups.
Please dial in by phone to listen to a simultaneous audio conference while viewing the online presentation. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.
