American Community Survey Workshop Set for March 6
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Center for Public Affairs Research (CPAR) will sponsor a training workshop on the American Community Survey (ACS) Thursday, March 6, which will cover a variety of new state demographic and economic data. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Educational Service Unit #3, 6949 S. 110th St., in Omaha.
Census 2000 data is now more than seven years old. The ACS has more current information, and asks the same critical questions as the decennial Census on a yearly basis. The March 6 workshop will focus on new information now available for areas with more than 20,000 people, including the first three-year aggregated data for 2005-2007. Some examples of areas that will receive their first ACS data include:
• Counties: Madison, Platte, Gage, Dakota, Saunders and Washington
• Cities: Bellevue, Kearney, Fremont, Hastings, North Platte and Papillion
• School Districts: Grand Island, Columbus, Omaha Westside, Ralston and Elkhorn
To register, call (402) 561-7585. Seating is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost to attend in $75 and includes materials, continental breakfast, lunch and refreshments.
Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. For additional information on the ACS or the training session, contact David Drozd, CPAR research associate, at (402) 554-2132 or visit the CPAR Web site at http://cpar.unomaha.edu.
