Community Assessment Workshop

Posted on Mar 18, 2015 in Whats New Releases

March 18, 2015.  “Using Census Data to Assess Your Community”

The public is invited to a free workshop being held on April 8th in downtown Honolulu.

This interactive workshop will be taught by Mr. Jerry Wong of the U.S. Census Bureau.

Learn how to use census population and business data to assess the community or service area you are interested in. Become familiar with the prepackaged narrative profiles available for areas within our state.  Improve your skills at obtaining key data in an efficient manner using the Bureau’s data tools, especially their American FactFinder tool.  This tool has been revised to make it easier to locate and access data.  Get familiar with these new features that will soon become available, many of which were based on user feedback.

Recent activities of Mr. Wong include webinars on the American Community Survey and the race/ethnicity data.  Both of these topics will be included in the workshop.

Mr. Jerry Wong is a Data Dissemination Specialist from the Los Angeles Regional Office of the U.S. Census Bureau.  He has been the Bureau trainer for our State of Hawaii for over 20 years.  Jerry’s experience also includes his role as an advisor to Nielsen—the nation’s leading television, radio, and consumer measurement company.

The Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT) and the U.S. Census Bureau are co-sponsoring this event. Space is limited, so please sign up early. Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops or other mobile devices for this workshop. We will provide free wireless Internet (WiFi) access in the training room.
