Description of this Workshop

The Census Bureau conducted two hands-on workshops at UCF for data users on the Economic Census on Wednesday, August 11, 2010. For the detailed data for Florida, 13 of 18 industry sectors were released prior to the workshop and the other 5 were due out by early September.

  • New users learn about the range of data about businesses available from the Census Bureau, including both the Economic Census and more frequent data sets.
  • Experienced users learn about new features of the data, comparability issues, and qualifications of the data.
  • Attendees gain skills in accessing Economic Census data in American FactFinder.
  • Attendees have the opportunity to tell others about their own practical applications of the data and learn what others are doing.
