An Infopeople Webinar
Presenter: Linda Clark

Do you need to know:
- All the counties in California with a Filipino population of 10,000 or more?
- How the home values in Santa Rosa changed between 2007 and 2011?
- How to create tables and maps for your “service area,” a geography you customize for a grant application?
Linda Clark, data dissemination specialist for the U. S. Census Bureau, will guide you through the latest version of the American FactFinder database.
At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will be able to:
- Use a residential address to find demographic data for a neighborhood
- Customize a map to display and compare census tracts within a city on a particular topic, such as poverty
- Modify the look of a data table by transposing rows and columns and applying customized filters to refine results
- Download tables and maps into a variety of formats for presentation or for further manipulation
- Preserve search parameters permanently for future use
This webinar will be of interest to public libraries, medical libraries, law libraries, school and university libraries, reference desk staff, and all others engaged in providing customer service to people needing Census data.
