FREE American Community Survey Data Webinar!

"Accessing Block Group Data with the ACS" Webinar
Those amazing little block groups are not available in American FactFinder. Find out how to access data at the block group level in this free webinar.

The ACS is an ongoing survey that generates estimates on social, economic, housing, and demographic topics. Data users can access these estimates down to our smallest level of geography, block groups, using the ACS Summary File. This presentation will cover background information about the ACS, an explanation of the ACS Summary File, and a demonstration of accessing block group data using the Summary File Retrieval Tool, DataFerrett, and FTP site.

Date and Time: Tuesday, June 24th from 1:00-2:00 PM
Presenter: Gretchen Gooding, American Community Survey Office
