Love Data Week 2021 — The U.S. Census: Then, Now, and Moving Forward

Feb 11, 2021

11:00am – Noon

Virtual via Zoom

Workshop Overview

The Founding Fathers laid out an ambitious plan: count every person in the United States to determine proportional representation in Congress. The U.S. Census has since evolved to expand its scope, collecting data to uncover community needs, subsequently influencing how these needs can best be met.

Join us in exploring the U.S. Census’ beginnings, its current charge and intent, and the challenges it faces in contemporary society. We will also spend time experimenting with tools useful for socio-demographic research involving US Census resources — specifically, extracting and customizing data from Data.Census.gov and visualizing data with Social Explorer.
